New Project

Well, not having a quilt in to hand quilt til after Christmas, is letting me play in the sewing room.  I am enjoying working on new projects!  This Spiral table runner was very interesting to work on. I even like
In this pic, it isn't completely is now all quilted. I used the pillowcase, no bias binding! I used the walking foot and quilted simple in the ditch to finish it off. On to another project...

I am, though, anxious to get back to hand quilting!!!

Borders are On!

Good morning has turned cold here, went from raining to freezing just like that!
I have more progress happening...I finished adding borders to Big Ten, and love it.  This qult is different...a lot of pattern going on, but classic blacks and whites!
Now, if I can just get at the quilting!  I have tops piling up here.  After the holidays, I need to quilt!  I quilted this little one yesterday on a last minute order.
And working on piecing my 100 club fence with some of these Fabrics...
That is coming together...Feb. is our last month for picking up fabrics.
Started a piece for Feb too....still can't show you

WIP Wednesday

Good evening folks...a rainy day here today.  Although it is only Wednesday, I have had full days.  Monday was our group sewing day, which is always a good time. I bound my Birch Tree quilt.
I made it an early day because I wanted to get ready for our Christmas gathering at a friend's home.
Our community group gets together here every year for a potluck supper and gift swap.  It was so much fun..lots of laughter!
Tuesday, I did Monday's, and some wrapping of gifts. Then out to another Christmas gathering...I know!!!  Lol.  Food everywhere!!!  This was our little sewing group having potluck and we did something different after our meal.  We each brought 3 FQS to the party....we played a game called Left, Right and Centre,  the winner of each game won 3 FQs..there were 9 of us, so we played a few games!!!  We laughed til it hurt!!!
Today, I did a little hand quilting, and pin basted a friends quilt to load on Lily tomorrow. Pics after Christmas. I do have a quilt on my design wall...Big Ten is done in bold blacks and whites.
This is only about half of the quilt...large blocks that won't all fit on the wall. It is pieced much like Take Five quilt pattern. I have my months blocks for the 100 Club quilt to piece yet, and tons of quilt tops to be quilted....but after Christmas now.
Well...i think that is about it for me.  Have a wonderful week and safe weekend!
