Oh the feeling of a finish....this one came off the Coronet today. It was a delight to quilt this one, called Mail Slot. I am trying not to spend too much extra time when possible...so, meandering, loops and a little ruler work on the squares.

Hello folks...hope this finds everyone in good spirits. I know the nicer weather is helping my mood....lol!
This past week has been busy here in my little corner of the world...getting ready for tourist season and gardening all at the same time. Hubby being late going back to work this year is a help to me with yard work, though.
My WIPs this time around are.....this Rail Fence pieced by the same lady that pieced last weeks Grandmothers Flower Garden is being hand quilted.
And this one on my Coronet(Lily), is my own Mail Slot quilt, which will go in the shop when finished. I loaded it this morning...then could not make up my mind on what to quilt on it...lol. Tomorrow I will decide on something! This measures 90x100" which are hanging below the machine. Lol
These next blocks are a LaMoyne Star which is a custom order I am working on.
There will be 20 blocks with triple sashings and a nine patch corner stone in each sashing. Did this one years ago too.
Besides these, I have made and machine quilted several baby quilts, a bed runner, and a couple of wall hangings for Canada's 150.
This is the wall hanging above.....these small items all need to be bound yet. Other than what I've shown you here; I have three customer quilts to be hand quilted, one customer quilt to machine quilt, and five of my husbands to quilt....plus s couple more of my own. Ours will be done both ways....depending on the quilt.
That is it, I think...stay safe and enjoy as much quilting as you can...

Been working steady on customer quilts and starting yard work. The past couple of days have been gorgeous here...love getting outside to rake and clean things up.
I am out to the borders on this custom order...Dresden Plate...or Sunflower, depending on who calls it which.
And, I am just past the center of this Hexie quilt...hand quilting it for a lady.
Last, but not least...Merrill's fifth quilt top finished today. This is from Missouri Star Co.
Weather is suppose to be great for a few days...so, hope to be outside more.
Have a wonderful week folks!!!!

Hey everyone...its been a few weeks since I posted anything, so here we are. I have finished hand quilting and bound the one I was working on last time.
This is called Take Five...very simple pattern.
And I have this customer quilt in the frames and just started the hand quilting on it. Hexies.....
This has such pretty colours!! I have the Dresden Plates put together for an order...have to applique them next. And....I have to get one on Lily(my Coronet) right away!!! I spent the afternoon with a couple of friends, who just bought Coronets and had so much fun bouncing ideas and info off each other.
I have to get Lily moving again, and get quilts done for this summer. I was baby sitting last week...which meant, no quilting.Here are the Dresden plates...there is a stack of 20 there.
