On my design wall

This throw size quilt is in progress right now.  It is a custom order in the making...
Not a lot left to do, three more short rows and a small border.  Good job on this very rainy day...that we need.

WIPs

Hi folks...another gorgeous day here in the Maritimes, but we need rain badly. My garden is dust!!!!... Not the veggies now, the ground....clear powder.  Anyway, I managed to make mustard pickles today...no worries on loosing my cucumbers now!!!  
I can't get enough of these.  And I've finished hand quilting this custom order...LaMoynne Star.
And this Wallflower is complete out to the borders...
A friend is making one too...we are sewing together. Next is June's quilt...
Isn't it just gorgeous?????  One is nice and bright...the other is nice and soft.  Love this pattern from Missouri Star Co.
This four patch is going on a Lily very soon to be machine quilted.
Well...off to get supper, have a wonderful week.

WIP Wednesday

The last full week of July....hard to believe!!!!  It seems like I just planted the garden, and we are eating from it already...crazy.  I am linking up to Monika at http://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com/

I am staying busy with quilts...even though there is lots to do outside these days.  Right now, I have this one in being hand quilted.
This is the LaMoyne Star...a custom order. I am right in the middle of the quilt now.   I just put this little baby quilt on the Coronet, but haven't taken a stitch yet.  
It is a John Deere!!!!!  I couldn't stand back far enough for a full picture, but you get the idea....right?
I have this order all pieced and waiting to be hand quilted.
This is called Floral Arber, and is done in soft colours for a little girl.  I have one more to piece for this lady.  I am also working on a little applique too....a quilt by Missouri Star called Wallflower.
There are 42 blocks here....I think I have about 8 finished....lol. I think it will be very pretty!!!
Well...back to quilting for a bit before bedtime. Have a wonderful week, folks!!

A Finish!

Time for a post...they seem so far apart lately.  I am struggling with a summer cold this week, and it's my husbands fault....lol. He brought it home!!!!!   But I have to say, he felt worse than I do with it.

I finished hand quilting this custom order, Dresden Plate or Sunflower...has been called both.
And....a different look at it.
I have two more to quilt for this person...actually piecing these quilts as well. I have them all pieced now...just to quilt them.
Taking it easy for the rest of the afternoon...cold be gone!!!!

WIP Wednesday

Hello folks!!  Seems like ages since I last posted, just very busy...never stop!  Well; let's see what I am up to, eh...besides weeding that garden and fighting bugs!!!!
This past weekend, I finished hand quilting this customer quilt...she pieced it, and I did the quilting.
This is a wedding gift for someone special...it is king size
I took this one off my Lily (Coronet) this morning...
This is one that my husband pieced this past winter...closer looks.
Body of the quilt....next is the borders...
And the back...at least part of it...lol
I put this custom order in the hand quilting frames a few minutes ago...
Might stitch on it this evening. And I am working on this one with a friend once a week...
This is a couple of the blocks....using a layer cake with lots of pretty colours..more later on. That mauve fabric in the background is for another order I will be starting very soon.
Well, I have to get out to the kitchen before I burn supper!!!  Have a wonderful week.

WIP Wednesday

Hi folks...linking up to Monika at http://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com/
Well, the sun is shining this morning...not sure for how long though. It has been a dreary spring!
On to my works in progress...I have tons of projects on the go, but will show you the ones I am at right now.
This is a lady's quilt I am hand quilting...
I am just about in the Center now. It is very pretty colours, and I will show you the whole quilt when finished.  She marked it ahead of time, which helps.  This next one is a custom order...I've just finished piecing the Center of the quilt. Next step is the borders.
Lighting isn't great, but this is a very fresh quilt.  Besides these, I have 5or 6 waiting to be quilted one way or another.  And, I found the fabric I needed for another order, so that's good!  I spent yesterday afternoon sewing with my friend, June. She worked on a lovely set of placemats, no pic, sorry.  I worked at the quilt on my design wall above. 
Well, I guess I that's  it for me this week.  Today I will most likely be mowing after lunch..getting pampering this morning at the hairdressers...lol.
Have a great day!!!!!!
