All these blogs

Things have changed in the Tackett House, I guess it would be better put that the Tackett House has changed. We moved into this awesome house recently. So everything is working it's way out of boxes. We have started to get the garage cleaned out and stuff to the basement. Tonight I was able to work on a simple table runner (which has no pattern) for my mother in law's birthday. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to find safety pins to get it quilted on my machine. Once things get settled stay tuned for more pictures of the house and and the quilts in it.

I have just finished my nightly blogging check. Every night my husband ask what I am doing, I have them all saved in my favorites list. So this makes it very easy to open that and look at each of them. I must say sometimes I get all excited when I think one will be updated, then it uploads and there is nothing new.

Some of my favorite blogs I wanted to post on here in case someone else would like to check them out.

this one is a daily check This blog is done by a friend of my that works at LQS. She does some awesome work!

This one is a LQS here in Grove City. If you are going to stop by make sure to check out the blog, they have great coupons on the blog only

The next one is Material Mary, she always has great ideas and usually says where to find them.

Of course I'm sure every quilter already knows about the MODA bake shop. But of course I had to post it. I love to see the new projects that are FREE.

This one has made the list because the girl is around my age and loves to quilt!

some oldie but goodies

This is a quilt I have made for Jamie & I's bed. Our bed is king size but I made the quilt larger than that because we fight over who gets more covers. I'm trying to deiced what color backing I would like to put on this quilt. I'm thinking black with maybe a different green out of the same line to border it instead of piecing it all together. Why not have two different types of quilts. Then the big question.... What color to quilt it with? I can't wait to quilt it and have it ready for our bed.
This weekend I am going to a quilt retreat. This will be my first one but I have heard great reviews. I'm looking forward to have so much fun. Now the big thing is choosing what to take with me to work on? If anyone has suggestions please leave them! There are some different quilts posted below that have actually been finished and are being used!

This was my first mystery night. I love the color combo and have actually finished this one with a green minke backing. I snuggle under it every night!

This is a quilt I made for a friend's niece. It is made with Batik's and at first I did not like it at all. But once I quilted it I ended up liking it more.

Thanks for checking in..... stop back to see more.
