Quilt Qwazy Queens Blog Hop

 Hi is my day to show you what I am qwazy about!!  First of all, a huge thank you to Marian from for the hard work she puts into these hops for all of us. She has arranged a number of fantastic giveaways too!!!!!

FQS is also offering a 10% discount on purchases with the coupon code seamstobe316.  

I was introduced to quilting by my late mother in thing she could done for me! I have never looked back...
I was a very traditional quilter for many years...then came blogging, lol.  Love my blogging friends, and I have learned so much from all of you!  Now, I do traditional and more modern quilting as much as I can.  I make quilts to sell, I hand quilt and machine quilt them...also . I hand quilt and machine quilt for others.  As you can see on my blog...I usually have a stack of quilts waiting to be quilted.

Now, I am going to show you a few of my pieces...this Remembrance Poppy is my favorite. It is hand quilted.
This next one is a customer quilt that I hand quilted. 
This is one I made as a Thank You to our local detachment.
I made three of these for my grandsons for Christmas.
This t shirt quilt for my oldest grandson.
This is waiting to be quilted...

Ok....I could do this forever!!!  Lol. I want to show you something that I have only done once...a Bargello. I had put this off for so long,but loved it in the end!
And with leftovers from this piece....I made this piece for today. 

Well, I will leave you with that...and my giveaway from Aurifil (Joanna Figueroa Farmhouse) just leave a comment and tomorrow morning I will do a random draw.  Good luck to everyone! Make sure to visit the list below, and Marian above for more goodies today.

WIP Wednesday

It's been a while since I posted one of these. I was away on a cruise for ten days, and just haven't been around lately....sooooo, let's see what we have.

Linking up to Monika at Well, I am back at it...trying to get myself motivated to make some progress around here!
Been home for a week now, and I have a customer quilt in the  frames being hand quilted.  It is over half quilted as of tonight and going smooth. This quilt was pieced several years ago...I get the pleasure of finishing it.

I picked up a sampler quilt today to hand quilt...haven't looked at it yet though.  I still have this one waiting to be quilted on the Tiara.
I got a custom order this past week from a long time customer for a queen size quilt for a wedding gift.
So, I need to start piecing this one soon....she has been good to me!
I have fabric cut for two casserole carriers to make with our sewing group on Monday. And....I have my post ready for my day in the Quilt Qwazy Queens. Blog day is Thursday of this week.
Well.....I think I am done for the night. I hope you are following the hop, schedule is in my last post.
You know i have a stack of quilts of my own waiting to be quilted!!!!!
