Lots of Progress

It's been a busy day. Yesterday I loaded my large scrappy trips so I could quilt it today. The setting is 6 x8. I get so excited when it comes off the floor.





The backing - paisley fabric is really brown. It was cloudy when I snapped photos this afternoon.


My count down to Christmas mini from Temecula Quilt company.


Yes I know mine is different. I'll be quilting it tomorrow and maybe enjoy it for this Christmas.


We had a nice thanksgiving with friends Thursday so today I have cooked a turkey breast. It just wouldn't be thanksgiving without turkey sandwiches YUM!

And I've already started Celtic Solstice. Have you started Bonnie's new mystery?

Making Tops

From piles of blocks. I tend to sew blocks and more blocks. They easily add up. Some of this stuff needs to move on. So, I pulled out my scrappy trips blocks and put together this top Monday evening. It will be a Christmas present. I actually need to down size my 2.5 inch strip bin AGAIN! Well that will have to wait. Excuse the bad picture, it's a indoor photo. Setting is 6 X 8 and I like it.


Next on the block list will be sisters choice blocks. These will be put together for another Christmas present.


I will be evaluating my excess quilts and deciding which ones I will donate to the tornado victims. I can't keep all of them....

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

Count down To Christmas

Are you keeping up with the Count Down to Christmas mystery from Temecula Quilt Co? I am fascinated with the small quilts. Here is one of my blocks, based on the last clue.





Teeny tiny but so cute.

QOV

Friday we had a small group sewing and as always it's fun. Dee made two beautiful pillow cases. I quilted this top yesterday. And bound it today.





Margaret quilted this one and I applied the binding during our QOV sew in.





Kathy turned in a top for quilting which I did today. I will show it after she sees it.

Lots of progress...

Saying Goodbye

I have been working on this client commission T shirt quilt for the last few months. I really stretched my abilities doing a two sided quilt. The results were fabulous and the customer was over the moon with it. The small squares are the t shirt fronts.

These pictures were taken indoor. All the T Shirts were Carolina sorority. Alley asked for pink and green, the colors of her wedding.


Getting creative with the label on the female side.


Chris wanted Gamecock colors.


I love taking memories to the next level.

On the frame today

Blogger is not cooperating today so I will just let it go...

Cuteness alert - here is 'Meastro looking so pretty.  As you can see when I move, my seat is immediately taken.  She is such a loving cat!
This is what's quilting.  My split nine patch top.  I believe I will finish it tomorrow as I am tired.


These are my blocks and four patches for the Temecula Quilt Co Christmas mini Mystery.  They finish at 2 inches.  Cute!

QOV Friday


Our QOV group had been postponed to November 1 and only a few showed up.  So had a cup of tea, chatted then went home.  I put this top on the machine and away I went.

Judy T pieced this front and back.


Hope you are stitching something fun!
