WIP Wednesday

This is a totally different week than last week for me.  I am home, and back to hand quilting...had fun with my little guys and I got some piecing done while I was with them.  This was between hockey games and snow shoeing with them.  They were extremely well behaved and we had lots of fun.

Now, what I am working on this week...this quilt is completely finished

This is the last of 3 quilts I hand quilted for sisters.

WIP Wednesday

Hey folks!!  I have made it back home in one  I had a blast with our grandsons, and we had snow days!!  Oh my...3 little men to take care of and play with all week. They went snow shoeing with Grampy while Grammy shoveled snow. Grampy had surgery on his hand and can't do that yet.  Lucky me!!  lol.  I don't mind doing things outside like this though.  I boys loved helping and jumping on what I had already moved and knocking it back

We came back home late yesterday and although missing them; it is nice to be home and in my own bed. I will show you what I planned to post last week; I couldn't get my ipad on line at my son's I forgot to get their internet password from them....grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

I am halfway with the quilt that I last showed you....and I did bind a customer quilt while away.

I am linking up to Monika and Lee.   Have a look folks.

Churn Dash

Once a year, I join the 100's club at our favourite local quilt shop.  we pay a small fee to join...and we get all the fabric to make a lap size quilt. we pick up home work fabric once a month between Sept. And Feb and gradually get our quilt pieced.

This year, I along with Connie decided to make ours queen size.  I just finished piecing my top today.
I wanted it together before going to stay with my grandsons next week.  The pattern this year is the churn dash,  and the fabric is 
Bella  solids. My first time using this it.
Here is the quilt...we'll 1/4 of the quilt..LOL. it is folded ready to put away for awhile.  Once I get  a few customer quilts quilted, I will machine quilt this one.

this one measures 92x102"...linking up to Fort Worth Fabric Studio
