Quilt Ministry Update

It's been a while since I've posted, but I have 3 quilts to show you.  It's been slow going lately with cutting and quilting, but I think I'm getting caught up!

What a cute quilt!  We used 2 charm packs and a little extra yardage to make this one.  Put the extra on the back as usual.

This one sewed up quickly with the large blocks.  

This has got to be my favorite quilt I've seen in a while.  It's a rich and warm, quilted with a spiral square pattern that I just found.  So perfect for a man's quilt.  Quilt Ministry is this Friday.  Hope to see you there!

Coffee and Cactus Quilt

 This quilt was made for a friend.  She picked the colors and the pattern to go in her living room.  I love this pattern because it was so easy to sew.  I added the extra pieces to the back for some color.
 It's quilted with a meandering vine patter that really shows up on the back.

Magnetic Menu Planner

I saw this awesome menu board planner on this website and had to make one for myself.   If I don't have my dinner plans wrote down and planned out, I tend not to put too much effort into dinner.  With 7 kids that means we eat pancakes, tacos, or something super simple.  That gets old real quick!  Anyway, I have been typing our menu on a Word calendar lately, but this board is reusable and is so much nicer.

I transfered the pdf file to photoshop, resized them (because they were smaller that what I needed), changed the words for the categories and printed my meals.  I only used 3 pages of magnetic sheets even though I doubled a lot of our meals because we eat them 2 times a month.  While I was at it, I thought I should get some new binders for our recipes.  Here's the before:

And here they are now.  I modified the labels in the files from Megan since we don't eat seafood or vegetarian dinners.  The project took me a couple hours, but I already had my dinner items on a list.

If you want to make one for yourself, just visit "the homes I have made" blog to find all the directions!
