WIP Wednesday

I am not among the missing...really. just not doing much that I can actually show you, Christmas, you know...LOL

So,  I am a day or two away from finishing this quilt by hand...

I just turned it after taking this picture....I can now see the outer edge...yay!!!!

a close up for you...
Hope you can see well enough....posting from my iPad, and the pics post a bit differently from the laptop.

I have started the machine quilting on one of my quilts that I can't show...will be so glad when I can post those. I have two more customer quilts waiting for hand quilting, then I will be completely caught up!!!
My projects are ready for Rush Hour blog hop starting on the 23 rd of this month. I am anxious to show you those!!!!

The end of the month, our sewing group will get together to start our  100 club quilt.  so fun to get back   together with the ladies.  That's about it on the sewing front here, for now.

On the 30 th, our community group gets together to make over 700 do- nuts for our annual turkey supper on Oct 4 th.  that is one very busy week, but also lots of laughs when we all get together.

Thanks for visiting my little blog today...have a good one!

RBD Gingham/See You in September...Sept 9 th

We have arrived!!  who would think we have gone through our summer already??  I know I was and still am very busy with our garden...most is in and pickled or frozen, but still lots to do.

September

For this blog hop I made 3 gingham pieces and will show you a few things I made during the summer.

I machine quilted this one...for a friend's grandson.

Hand quilted this one..

Just finished hand quilting this one...
I have also pieced a few quilt tops, but can't show those yet...sorry.

Now on to our gingham, I love RBD's rainbow colors, but I only had an orange.  So, here we go...

I made this little ruffled bag with the orange gingham, and added a bright fabric to the ruffle and lining to set it off.
it has a neat little shoulder strap.

Next I put together a little table runner. I machine quilted echos around the appliqu├ęd flowers
And quilted e and L s around the border.
last, but not least.....
this table topper....or a sweet little picnic quilt!
won't be seeing these flowers much longer.....sad.
Just thought..shoot, I didn't show you the backs of these. the runner back is the floral fabric in the bag lining and the topper back is the orange gingham.    I had fun with these, and I really love this little picnic quilt.

Thanks for visiting....now check out the rest of the list, please, and enjoy your day.

A special thanks goes out to our Madame Samm and Shari for organizing and hosting this blog hop. cheer everyone on now!!!!! Love RBD too, don't we!!!!!!
