WIPs......trying to get back with it here

Good morning is a cloudy, cooler morning here today, which is welcome for now.  lol
I had early morning gardening to do; so that makes it nicer....sun can shine anytime now, please!

On to my WIPs for this week...and hoping to keep up with them now.   I am hand quilting a customer quilt..almost finished and will bind it for her.

This is the second one for this lady, a wedding gift for her daughter and husband.  She did the cross stitch, of course, and then I get it. She does very nice work, I have to say.
Next up is another customer quilt...a young lady just learning to make quilts.  I am machine quilting a couple for her..this is number one just loaded on Lily....have a couple of passes quilted now.
I am quilting a leaf vine all over this one for her. And last, but not least, my own project that I am working on slowly. I am just about to finish the main part of this quilt top...loving it, and is so much fun...Modern Dragonfly
I am now appliqueing the last one...bottom right corner in deep blues. Borders to follow soon.
I am also taking part in two BOMs with fellow bloggers...Sew Incredibly Crazy, and Quilts My Way.
They are so very neat and totally different to work on...thanks ladies!  Can see on my FB page.
I also have 5 quilts for customers waiting to be hand quilted...a busy summer all around. love it.

 Thanks for reading folks...see you soon!!!

My Winter Wonderland!!

Good afternoon folks...I just got in from mowing lawns for about 3 hours, but loved it!  Ok,..except for the swarms of black flies, killers!  I wanted to take a minute to show you my applique quilt that I just finished.  It is a BOM with our fabric shop of them.

This quilt is only 65x79 inches, but I had so much fun doing it....lots of applique, and I don"t normally do a lot of that, but, I did enjoy this...It is now all bound and in the shop.  I am hand quilting a friend"s Giant Dahlia quilt, which I will show you once she has it.  I like them to see their quilt ahead of others.  
Well....lawns done, next week will be the veggie garden, things are up and will need weeding!!!!

Be A Diamond Blog Hop

Hello everyone...I am so pleased to be here with you this morning, sharing my projects.  Blog hops are a great way to enjoy people who enjoy similar things. This time around, I have 2 small pieces to show you.  Table runners are quick, and that is what I have to do lately...very busy with my customer quilts. So, here we are...
This first one is a square in a square, which I didn't realize was classed as a diamond, but it is!

 Okay, runner bare
 Runner with center piece...

This smaller runner is made from the leftover of the first runner...                                                 
And.....with a little ornament again...
Now, I want to show you previous quilts with Diamond patterns.
 These are quilts I made a couple of  years ago...

Thank you Carol, from Just Let Me Quilt, for hosting and making this blog hop possible.               
Now, here is a list of the participants showing their work today...please visit and comment on their projects...make everyone feel good.  Thank you for visiting my space today...I hope you enjoy your day..

Good evening folks...I am so pleased to see this snow going.  The past few days here have really taken the snow down quickly.  Now, this means I need to keep quilting as much as I can...the season is just around the corner, gardening will be my chore soon.

Right now, though it is is what I am up to right now.  I finished hand quilting my 100 Club quilt today...this measures 102" square, and I love it.
 And this next one is a peek at the one I loaded today, to hand quilt for a customer...
Besides these, I have a customer quilt ready for Lily, and I am working on two t shirt quilts in the sewing room.  My poor fingers are, but still going!
I hope you all have a wonderful week...later.     Ohhhh, and I have my piece ready for the blog hop!!!
