WIP Wednesday

GLinking up to http://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com/
Hello folks....here we are mid week again, time files by way too quickly!  Today, I spent the afternoon with a friend having lots of laughs at ourselves!!  It was so much fun...

I came home, made supper and finished hand quilting this customer quilt.
Lovely piecing and colours in this queen size quilt. Tomorrow, another one goes in the frames.
I did quilt a baby quilt on Lily yesterday, but haven't taken a pic yet...maybe tomorrow.  We have one more month for blocks to finish our 100 club quilt....can't wait to show it to you!

Well, that is it for me this week...you know I have a pile of quilts waiting to be quilted one way or another....right?  Have a good one....

Ok.....I got the baby quilt bound after I posted and here is a pic.

Trying to get back into sewing after Christmas, but not motivated much.  I do have this one half hand quilted though...
A customer quilt...she did a very nice job piecing this...love the colours!  I have a piece ready for the blog hop coming up next month.  Don't forget to join us...
I have lots of quilts to pin baste for Lily, so, I guess I need to get to it, eh.  Have a great week folks.

Starting the New Year Right

I got Christmas all put away...and a quilt in to hand quilt. I have missed this so much over Christmas.
This was taken with my phone, which isn't taking clear pics lately.  It is really nice bright royal blue with white and soft yellow. Was so nice to do a little quilting yesterday...back into the groove!
I have this one on Lily..only small so will finish it today.
Been walking in the woods every day...cold, but so nice in the woods.
You all have a wonderful New Year!!

New Project

Well, not having a quilt in to hand quilt til after Christmas, is letting me play in the sewing room.  I am enjoying working on new projects!  This Spiral table runner was very interesting to work on. I even like it...lol.
In this pic, it isn't completely finished...it is now all quilted. I used the pillowcase method..so, no bias binding! I used the walking foot and quilted simple in the ditch to finish it off. On to another project...

I am, though, anxious to get back to hand quilting!!!

Borders are On!

Good morning everyone...it has turned cold here, went from raining to freezing just like that!
I have more progress happening...I finished adding borders to Big Ten, and love it.  This qult is different...a lot of pattern going on, but classic blacks and whites!
Now, if I can just get at the quilting!  I have tops piling up here.  After the holidays, I need to quilt!  I quilted this little one yesterday on Lily...got a last minute order.
And working on piecing my 100 club quilt...garden fence with some of these Fabrics...
That is coming together...Feb. is our last month for picking up fabrics.
Started a piece for Feb too....still can't show you though....lol

Too cute, eh!   Have a fun day folks!

WIP Wednesday

Good evening folks...a rainy day here today.  Although it is only Wednesday, I have had full days.  Monday was our group sewing day, which is always a good time. I bound my Birch Tree quilt.
I made it an early day because I wanted to get ready for our Christmas gathering at a friend's home.
Our community group gets together here every year for a potluck supper and gift swap.  It was so much fun..lots of laughter!
Tuesday, I did Monday's housework...lol, and some wrapping of gifts. Then out to another Christmas gathering...I know!!!  Lol.  Food everywhere!!!  This was our little sewing group having potluck and we did something different after our meal.  We each brought 3 FQS to the party....we played a game called Left, Right and Centre,  the winner of each game won 3 FQs..there were 9 of us, so we played a few games!!!  We laughed til it hurt!!!
Today, I did a little hand quilting, and pin basted a friends quilt to load on Lily tomorrow. Pics after Christmas. I do have a quilt on my design wall...Big Ten is done in bold blacks and whites.
This is only about half of the quilt...large blocks that won't all fit on the wall. It is pieced much like Take Five quilt pattern. I have my months blocks for the 100 Club quilt to piece yet, and tons of quilt tops to be quilted....but after Christmas now.
Well...i think that is about it for me.  Have a wonderful week and safe weekend!
