WIP Wednesday


What a gorgeous past few days here!! We had a perfect weekend; and right up to now is beautiful...Now it is hot, but I am loving the sunshine; though I guess it is leaving us for a bit of rain. I do not mind because a little rain will clear the air and water my gardens. 

This weeks WIPs are few....not because I am not working, but I am finishing.....yay!!!!!
Since last week, I finished hand quilting the Fishing Lodge theme quilt....calling it Gone Fishin....
This picture is not a good one...but after I hand sew the binding on; I will take a much better pic outside.

I made my project for Stamp On It blog hop......which has started today also; check it out.

I have started hand quilting this commissioned quilt.....
This lady does exceptional piecing!!!!!

I quilted this table topper.....called Chimes on Tiara today. Have to bind it yet.
I have joined the Christmas in July blog hop....and a couple of QALs....I know!!!!!!!
And besides that; I have my list from last week waiting to be quilted and one more commissioned one on the way.   But I love it!!!!!!
I know there are a lot of pictures in this post....but I can now show you the Memory Quilts that I did for the graduate; since the ceremony was last week...This first one was actually made by our graduating class; back when they were in grade 1. Their teacher kept it and gave it to her great niece; who was in her class that year.  The students used crayon to make their blocks with their names on it....the teacher put the quilt top together and I hand quilted it for her this spring.  Here it is!!!!

One of the crayon blocks...

And the second memory quilt....this one I made for the graduate/pieced and quilted it.

This is done with photos on printable fabric. The quilt is in her school colors....she was into basketball big it focused on that.
