Busy, Busy

Good morning folks...been a busy week here, getting quilts done up before the Christmas season is here.  Today, I want to show you two client I just finished hand quilting, and the other is half way to being finished...hand quilting too.

This one belongs to a friend...he got me to quilt and bind it for him and his wife. He bought the top
in Pennsylvania.

This is a cross stitch quilt...I have done a few of these for this lady over the years. This might be
her last one...not sure.  She has said that

I took a few small things off Lily in the past few pics.  These are baby quilts, placemats
things I do my test runs on  before a larger quilt.
I am also busy piecing two baby quilts in the sewing room, one will be hand quilted and the other
machine quilted.  I am also binding a couple of large quilts for a friend...she hates doing

Well, I think that's about it for me this week...have a fantastic weekend folks!!!!

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 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 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, 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.

back to the old laptop.  It works fine, but my pics are on the  

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 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!

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.
