Appliqué Blocks

Here are the latest Appliqué blocks I have finished.





As you can see blogger is not cooperating.  So I will just go with the flow.  These blocks are needle turned and are so soothing to stitch in the evening.

I have two quilts to stitch the binding down sometime.

More tomorrow.

Feed Me Said the

Sewing machine so I did, all weekend long.  It was spring meeting for the Quilters of SC in 
Spartanburg.  Denise and I always make a long weekend when these events are held.  So aside from the meeting Saturday we hunkered down and sewed away. Got lots done.  A bag of scraps cut down to two inch strips, a big bag of scraps turned into 31 MAM (mile a minute) quilt blocks that finish at 8 inches.  My set up in our room.







Denise took a bag of scraps and cannot stop making these cute flower pins.



Cute.

The scholarship quilt which I made and donated was awarded today.  A fellow quilter won it so I know it will be well cared for.



Excuse the finger in the picture lol.

Practicing machine ruler quilting

Here is the latest quilt I have been working on for the last couple of weeks.  I pulled this out of my tops to finish as I have a trunk show in a few months.







I am really with how this quilt came out.  It's a prime example of what scraps can do for you.

Time Flies

Did you miss me?  I don't have an excuse for not blogging, just busy.  Rest assured I have been sewing and organizing.

First up is the completed quilt Denise and I collaborated on.  The butter fly quilt.  It looks fabulous now that the binding is attached.



The owner of the blocks will get her quilt on Monday.  I hope she likes her quilt.  It has come a long way.

A baby girl quilt for K who works at a doctors office I frequent.



My quilt inspector Maestro checking it out.  Ignore my pink camo slippers.

The back



That was modified as the fabric I picked was a bit short.

And there has been appliqué most evenings.





The last block is my apple tree block that is not oriented correctly.  Sorry about that.

I have gone through my tops and selected the large scrappy stars for quilting as it will be a nice addition to my trunk show.

More tomorrow or Sunday so keeping sewing.
