Project Status

Here is the progress on the wedding wall hanging which I totally redid. I wasn't happy with how the top lined up with the text. After all this, with the sides finished. There was space at the bottom begging for something. It's a wedding wall hanging so I added a heart. I used the accuquilt go cutter to cut the large heart. Then I needle turned the heart.

The progress on the fan quilt. I had to order more background dot fabric. I am appliquing 3 large dots on each side. I have one side finish and would have had more done but a nice thunderstorm happened yesterday. We lost power for about an hour and half. The name for the fan quilt is three quarters.

Hope everyone has made progress on what ever you are creating.

Wall Hanging, Misc

Here is the progress of the wall hanging I'm doing for Liz in Scotland. This is the second time. First time I did the name and wedding date first and then embroidered the top wedding bell. I wasn't centered so I scrapped it. I'll make a bag or something with it. It won't go to waste!

I quilted up a panel fabric surrounded by a cute piece of yellow fish fabric. This will be going to someone at work who is due in November.

Here are the left over fan units. I always seem to make too many. There are enough here to make another quilt top (34).

I've also bound Itty Bitty and Shark Crumbs. They are washed and are drying now. All that is left on them is a label. And maybe a pillow case too.

Shark Attack - Crumb Top

My new floor is finished except for final scrubbing (to get off the grout). That will have to wait for another day. I have a mexican stew simmering on the stove and I plan on sewing the rest of the afternoon. Sebastian took the opportunity to strut himself into the picture.

Mr FQ commented on how nice the floor was. Made me feel good. :-) LOVE IT!

A certain little boy (actually he'll be bigger this year) will be getting a bed quilt. Crumb blocks surrounded by sharks, trying to eat the smaller fish in between the rows. So cute. The back will be sharks on a turquise background. He fishes so I know he'll love it. His little brother will be receiving Itty Bitty.

Long Awaited New Floor

Blogger says we'll do this in reverse order....

Here is the progress as the new floor is installed. It's a floating porcelean floor. I have waited for this day since moving here many years ago...

They will be grouting with a dark color. A creative design element. I used the dark grout in the bathroom and it looks good.

The old yucky floor.

It's noisy around here but it will be worth it....

Maybe I'll have a quilty post later today.

Itty Bitty Quilted and others

I have a fellow co-worker who has delivered a baby boy so I dug in my ever ready bin of tops. This one will definitely do. The back is a bright blue similar to the binding.

A new quilt for the dining room table (also known as the cat layout). Gee it's red and white. I have quite a few red and white quilts.

When I got back in the saddle last weekend I quilted Itty Bitty using a funcky star and loops in a bright yellow thread. I'm please with the results. The binding will be a green fabric.
