WIP Wednesday

Here we go again...I missed last week as I didn't have much to show. I have been so busy weeding the garden and thinning vegetables out, mowing the lawns....and it is hot!  But summer is short, so not complaining about heat.  I am complaining about my potato bugs though...LOL.   where the heck do they come from?????? I squash those things twice a day... And they multiply each time I go back out...

This week I am close to the end of the Batik quilt I started hand quilting 2 weeks ago.
This is the quilting...all in the ditch except the border.
Here you can see I have 2 rows of blocks and the border left to quilt.

I am really busy working on projects, but can only share a peek, as they are for the Sept blog hop.
this is one of them..using RBD gingham

another...LOL

the next 2 are peeks at other pieces for the hop....

fabric ready to get into....and

A peek at one ready to quilt....sorry, but have to wait til Sept to see these.

When I finish hand quilting the batik quilt, I have 3 more here waiting, that belong to customers, and 1 more to arrive.  So, I will be busy for sometime.  I also have a piece to make for the Rush blog hop the end of Sept.    Fun, fun, fun!!!!

  13. I love the summer time with gardens, and flowers, and yards to mow. Although I don't mow my own yard, hubby does. You're such a teaser with those projects. The batik quilt looks like it's coming along and very beautiful.
