Hello, welcome to my blog. I'm still not sure what I will be featuring in this blog. I know it will be about quilting, but I might throw in the latest book I'm reading on my Kindle. So come along a follow me through my world of quilting and other stuff.

Well I finished my BINGO card tonight.  I took all the scrap fabric that I got from my quilting friends and took them to work with me today.  During my lunch hour, I sat in my cube and started cutting out my colored blocks.   When I got home I still had a couple of purple blocks to find and cut.  This is for the May 4 Me BINGO  Game see the button  on the side of my block for the link.

I embroider the words BINGO in the color of the rows.  I made one mistake, in row N and G 4th row down I have two frogs one red and one green.  Since I did not notice until after I put it together I just left it and I call the red frog a Lizard.  I bind the quilt with 3” wide double folded brown binding tape (hand some laying around so I did not have to cut fabric for a binding).  I enjoy hand sewing binding when doing a quilt.   It is only around 12:00 at night and I finished this around 11:00 (I did have to eat something, TV dinner).  I did not have my grandson today so I did not have to fix dinner.  I can not wait until the link up this Sunday. 

Now on to the next project.  I still have to work on those pictures for the Dancing Tree so I can put them together and get this quilt finished before Mother’s Day.  I know I have time, but with Murphy’s Law, you never know what is going to come up.

Have A BINGO Good Time
