This has all been organized by Marian over at http://www.seamstobesew.com/...doesn't she do a great job for us? Now there are nice giveaways with our hop...so make sure you scoot over to Marian's page to get in on those!!!!

My part in the hop is a table runner I made for today.  I am nuts about many things, but my family comes first. This piece represents my husband, our sons, and our grandchildren.



As you can see...one heart for each mentioned above..love them dearly.

I found this runner on line, and it was so quick to put together.  I just tweeked it a bit, and added the cut outs from the hearts.  Thanks for being here today, and make sure you visit the rest of our list today, please.

 Hi folks...another nice week here in New Brunswick. We are in our January thaw!!!!!  This week, I am going to show you what is going with me. 

I finished quilting Bella on the Tiara yesterday....
Close up...

I have come to love this quilt!!

I put this customer quilt in to hand quilt this afternoon...
And I have 4 or 5 more quilts on the way...can't wait!!
I did finish piecing this Big Star from Missouri Star Co....but didn't think to take a new pic.
I added a gray border to finish it off and will fit a larger queen now, since it is too pale for my room.It measures 115 square.  I think we are done for today...enjoy the rest of your week!
Ohhhhhhhh, and I am ready for Nuts About....blog hop starting very soon. Working on the next one...

Things Moving Along...

The weeks are just flying by...and January normally drags on and on!  Anyway, I am getting lots done this week.  I have this first quilt ready to machine quilt...granted no stitches in it, but is lying on the machine...lol.
Now it does have borders on it at this point.
I machine quilted and bound these two cuties
And
I finished hand quilting this one for a friend.
Close up
And ...remember this?????
Well.....it Is now this...
I have one more sashing strip and one row of blocks to add.  It is a perfect size for my bed ....without borders!!! Yay.....my back is tired this afternoon(too much sewing?)

This should have been a WIP, but you now how it goes...lol.  I also have four quilt tops arriving soon to hand quilt.  Can't wait!

Update...and Finished!!!

The other day, I mentioned getting together with Connie and Marla to work on our Bargello Dahlias.
Well here is the stage I am at right now with mine...

Here, it is fused on the background.  Next pic shows it ready to quilt after appliqueing.


The color in the first pic is the exact color...second is in darker lighting.
It is an interesting process.

Now bound and finished....this is a pattern by Jennifer Houlden. And I won the pattern a couple of years ago.

WIP Wednesday


Ohhhh, it's so nice to be quilting again!  I enjoyed Christmas, but love being back to normal.  This morning, I finished machine quilting this customer Log Cabin quilt.
Close up...
Back...
This is a large bed size quilt pieced with outdoor type fabric. So, I quilted to match that fabric...swirls and leaves. You can't see, but the wide 3 strip border is completely leaf vines.
I also am busy hand quilting this customer quilt...
I am piecing a Big Star quilt, maybe for myself?....maybe!  We are near the end of our 100 club quilt, and getting together tomorrow with Connie, and Marla to work on our bargellos. I'll have pics next time of these ones...waiting for more quilts and orders to arrive.

Well, that's it for now folks...linking up to Monika over here...
