My Winter Wonderland!!

Good afternoon folks...I just got in from mowing lawns for about 3 hours, but loved it!  Ok,..except for the swarms of black flies, killers!  I wanted to take a minute to show you my applique quilt that I just finished.  It is a BOM with our fabric shop of them.

This quilt is only 65x79 inches, but I had so much fun doing it....lots of applique, and I don"t normally do a lot of that, but, I did enjoy this...It is now all bound and in the shop.  I am hand quilting a friend"s Giant Dahlia quilt, which I will show you once she has it.  I like them to see their quilt ahead of others.  
Well....lawns done, next week will be the veggie garden, things are up and will need weeding!!!!

Be A Diamond Blog Hop

Hello everyone...I am so pleased to be here with you this morning, sharing my projects.  Blog hops are a great way to enjoy people who enjoy similar things. This time around, I have 2 small pieces to show you.  Table runners are quick, and that is what I have to do lately...very busy with my customer quilts. So, here we are...
This first one is a square in a square, which I didn't realize was classed as a diamond, but it is!

 Okay, runner bare
 Runner with center piece...

This smaller runner is made from the leftover of the first runner...                                                 
And.....with a little ornament again...
Now, I want to show you previous quilts with Diamond patterns.
 These are quilts I made a couple of  years ago...

Good evening folks...I am so pleased to see this snow going.  The past few days here have really taken the snow down quickly.  Now, this means I need to keep quilting as much as I can...the season is just around the corner, gardening will be my chore soon.

Right now, though it is is what I am up to right now.  I finished hand quilting my 100 Club quilt today...this measures 102" square, and I love it.
 And this next one is a peek at the one I loaded today, to hand quilt for a customer...
Besides these, I have a customer quilt ready for Lily, and I am working on two t shirt quilts in the sewing room.  My poor fingers are, but still going!
I hope you all have a wonderful week...later.     Ohhhh, and I have my piece ready for the blog hop!!!

A Finish

Yesterday, I finished hand quilting this customer quilt, called Wallflower.  I've done this before for
myself in bright colours. 


In a day or two, I will be putting one of my own quilts on the hand quilting frames.  And I will be loading one on Lily right away also.  I have three of my own quilts to get quilted before moving on to
more customer quilts.  And I have more and more of them arriving every day...which is wonderful!!   
I am working on a couple of little items for the "Be A Diamond" blog hop coming up in April.  I have more applique blocks to make for my WinterWonderland quilt too.
