Hey...its Friday!!!

I have a finish and a new beginner for you this morning....I finished hand quilting this Slash Block quilt for a lovely lady.
This is one I have done myself,but in bright colors...this is made for this lady's grand daughter.  
It is a fun quilt, that I am sure this young lady will enjoy!

This one is for a customer also...don't know the name of this...all scraps of color, though.
I am enjoying hand quilting on this lovely muslin that she used here.  I need to get back to 
using more of this fabric myself...so soft to hand quilt.                                                      

Well, folks, beside these two, I am getting a memory quilt made from clothing ready for Lily.
I am working on 3 BOM, and a QAL with our local fabric shop.  A friend is joining me this
afternoon to do a little sewing on the latter project..always fun working together.  Another friend
joined me yesterday to piece our BOM with Jacqueline Steeves...thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon.
Have a nice weekend everyone...

What I am working on...

Hello folks...this past week, I finished hand quilting this Giant Dahlia for a friend.

I have made a ton of these quilts over the years, and each one is striking and so different.
This is a pillow from the pattern I bought from East Coast Quilt Co. in Nfld.  love it! It is called
Be Still My Puffin Heart.


This is a quilt I am working on...a panel with borders added..still adding to it.  This weekend is our
annual community Turkey Supper....so will be very busy with that the rest of the week.  I will be making rolls, pies, cooking turkeys, and peeling veggies...slicing turkeys, etc. with lots of folks from
our community.  We serve around 600 people in 4 hours. and have lots of laughs.
But, will be very glad when it is over!!!  lol.  Enjoy your week...

Happy Customer

It is such a joy to see and hear how folks feel about their quilt, when thy pick them up.  Today, this
custom order was picked up by a couple...they were so full of delight.  It makes it so worth the time
put into a quilt.

Not a great pic, because the original was saved small....so, enlarging causing fuzziness.  But, it is
a very nice quilt.  They picked out their colours, and loved it.  The orange here is really more gold.

I'm Still Here!!

Good evening everyone...its been awhile since I last posted.  I always enjoyed posting to my blog and reading all the blog posts.  But, it is getting so frustrating on blogger when things change and I cant post things at my convenience.  I can' post pics from my iPad for some reason anymore, which means
back to the old laptop.  It works fine, but my pics are on the iPad...so.  

Anyway, here I am trying to catch up a bit with you.  I have hand quilted both of these quilts I am about to show you. They both belong to other people though.

This beauty was delivered yesterday...all hand appliqued too.

This lovely Irish Chain was pieced by another friend...both ladies do nice work.
I am staying very busy with quilting this year, I have a custom order on Lily right now, and
more tops waiting to be hand quilted.  I will try to keep up with posting more...thanks for reading.

WIPs......trying to get back with it here

Good morning everyone...it is a cloudy, cooler morning here today, which is welcome for now.  lol
I had early morning gardening to do; so that makes it nicer....sun can shine anytime now, please!

On to my WIPs for this week...and hoping to keep up with them now.   I am hand quilting a customer quilt..almost finished and will bind it for her.


This is the second one for this lady, a wedding gift for her daughter and husband.  She did the cross stitch, of course, and then I get it. She does very nice work, I have to say.
Next up is another customer quilt...a young lady just learning to make quilts.  I am machine quilting a couple for her..this is number one just loaded on Lily....have a couple of passes quilted now.
 
I am quilting a leaf vine all over this one for her. And last, but not least, my own project that I am working on slowly. I am just about to finish the main part of this quilt top...loving it, and is so much fun...Modern Dragonfly
I am now appliqueing the last one...bottom right corner in deep blues. Borders to follow soon.
I am also taking part in two BOMs with fellow bloggers...Sew Incredibly Crazy, and Quilts My Way.
They are so very neat and totally different to work on...thanks ladies!  Can see on my FB page.
I also have 5 quilts for customers waiting to be hand quilted...a busy summer all around. love it.

 Thanks for reading folks...see you soon!!!

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 here...one 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!!!!
