WIP Wednesday

Isn't it a beautiful summer!!!! Has been very hot here in New Brunswick, but loving it!  I have a lot of outdoor work this time of the year, but still sewing and quilting. 

I finished the Poppy quilt....and love it.

A peek at the back of the quilt...
I think this is my very favorite quilt. I've been asked over and over by customers if I have a favorite...now I do!

I have this one in the frames now....customer quilt

this is a lap quilt in Batiks with the minky like fabric on back...forgot th proper name, but is fire something...lol.  first time hand quilting with this backing, but going well.

I have started a couple of other pieces, but afraid I can't show you yet. these are for the Sept. Blog hop with our favorite Madame!!!!!

I have 3 more customer quilts waiting to be hand quilted. and a number of my own to machine quilt.
One of these days I will get to those. I machine quilted a baby quilt for a friend yesterday, but neglected to take a picture.  it was a jungle animal panel with meandering.

hubby and I took a drive in the Solstice on Saturday...was a gorgeous hot day in the convertible.
we stopped at a sweet fabric shop and made a little purchase of some lovely fabrics.  can't have too much fabric. Have you seen the great sale Connecting Threads is having....oh my, I am having a hard time holding back!!!!

that's it for this week folks....linking up to Monika over at http://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com/ and
