Happy New Year!!!!!!!/ WIP Wednesday

I hope all of my family and friends have a very Happy New Year!!!  2013 was a wonderful year; I learned so much and met so many great new friends here in blog land...appreciate each one of you.

We are staying in tonight; as I have a head cold...not sick, but don't want to pass it around.  We were suppose to go to a Karaoke club, which is a blast!  Another night...

So for WIPs...I am ready for the 'Kona' hop which is right around the corner...January 7th/ be
Sunday I took the tree down and Monday I put this quilt in the frames to hand quilt for my friend, Rose.

This is the 'Take Five' that the five of us did on our group sewing day.  We each pieced one...mine was the first one I quilted on my Tiara.

Over the holidays I picked up a couple of more quilts to hand quilt for customers.  So; over all I am very busy and love it!!!!!!
I am starting to piece a 'Double Wedding Ring' quilt for a customer....I will have pics before too long. I also have another commissioned quilt to piece....a poppy quilt.  

Well; that is it for me this time around folks....just getting back into the routine here.  Hope you will join me over at The Needle and Thread.

'About a Quilt' QAYGQAL

This is a little quilt that I have done with Amira from Sewing Under Little Mushroom Caps. It is a quilt as you go method; which I had never tried.  It went quite well, really. We did one block a month and then joined our blocks this week.  I couldn't wait to finish it and show you!!

It's just a little quilt ...about 38x38....but I really like it.

close up of my favorite block.......

A look at the Amira did the back of hers in different solid colors for each block. If I did one again; that's what I would do. Her quilting stands out so very nice.  You should take a look.

WIP Wednesday

One week!!!!!   Can you believe week til Christmas. Not a lot going on here right now; as I am waiting until after the holidays to put another quilt in the frames to hand quilt.  But I will show those of you who haven't seen Texas Teardrop quilt all finished!!!!!!

This one was quilted on my Tiara.

Besides finishing this quilt; I do have my 'Kona' project ready for the blog hop. I am ready for the 'Door stopper' hop.....waiting for the fabric for 'She Who Sews' hop.   I now have 6 quilts to hand quilt after the holidays.  So I will not be bored .....

Done...Done....Done..!!/Friday Finishes

Oh I am so pleased....I have my Texas Teardrop all quilted and ready to bind. It is so nice to have this finished before I can sit and bind it whenever I feel like it!!  I have to say though; I do get bored not having something in to hand quilt in the evenings. I can't just sit still and watch TV.  But it has to wait is my Teardrop.

 Oh the lighting is so poor...but there are lots of

Now the borders....

And the back of the quilt.....
It is all trimmed up and ready for the binding.  Not sure when that will be on, but all ready.

I have a Question

You know how, when we add a gadget on our it is asking for a title when I want to add a button using the 'Image' section. Is there any way to get through this without adding that title? I never had to do this it won't work unless I do. It isn't necessary and takes up more space.

If there is an alternative; please let me know....thank you.

This is an update...I tried taking it out while editing; doesn't work.  That was one suggestion.
I did re add a couple of them using html instead of image. that worked great, but they are large...can't shrink the picture to fit the sidebar that way.  But it did work!!
Thank you everyone for you help.
