Live Laugh Love

I made a little mini quilt and I didn't see any pigs flying!  That's a good sign, right?  Last week I spent some time with my sewing machine and the world didn't stop ;-)

#10,172 Live, Laugh, Love
AAQI's Quilt a Month Club motivates me to make at least one little quilt a month.....although I'd like to be more productive than that.  

Most of the quilting was done by machine, but I hand stitched the words Live Laugh and Love with hand-dyed perle cotton.  

I did FMQing in a loopy pattern similar to the backing fabric.

Speaking of AAQI, the above video shows the quilts chosen for May's auction.  The online auction runs the first ten days of each month.

I'm proud to announce that our Orlando Modern Quilt Guild has a group page of Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts made by our members.  Check it out here!
Quilts for sale of this page can be purchased at any time.
Don't forget Mother's Day is right around the corner!


  1. Love your little quilt, Rene'! Lovely! I have been thinking of you. I told my hubby how much you liked the books Game of Thrones, and he has read them all. We started renting the videos of Season 1 of the show (I think it's HBO). Have you seen the shows? They are quite good. I haven't read the books but am enjoying the shows. Lloyd says they are not as in depth as the books, but they are staying close to the book.

  2. Wonderful little quilt! I love the colors and especially the quilting. Aren't minis so satisfying to make, especially when you're short on sewing time?! It's been weeks since I've had time to sew anything, so I love to see what you're making.

  3. I'm sorry, but two flying pigs just flew by my window. They were carrying a banner which read "Rene' Creates!" That's how I knew to come here for a visit ;) Hugs for all you do.
