Sept 8, 2013

Howdy ya'll!!!!
Another busy week around here! Not sure how I am staying sane except for my quilting and music:) Oh and my walks:) I am back to walking and it sure clears the brain matter:)
You would think with a short week it would be a quiet one but nope... always exciting with in laws:) ha ha!!! I asked hubby permission to leave MIL in Walmart one day.... never responded so had to bring her back:) ha ha!!!!

I did get some awesome quilting done:)

                        This sweetie is a baby quilt made by Judy:)
She cross stitched the blocks:) She lets me "play"

Love the backing too!

Christina's Sock monkey quilt.

Great idea just using yardage and adding a border:)

Another yardage quilt:)

I looped both:)

Oh what do I see.... yes I am quilting feathers:)

Karen wanted a wool Army blanket and batting in the middle. Rediscovered that wool makes me itchy esp when I had to piece it. Did quilt beautifully though!

 

Hung it on my design wall.... just love it! So did Karen! She is sending to her son in OR or maybe not:) Well she emailed him pics so I guess she has to now:(

I used lessons from Angela Walters Dot to Dot quilting class that I took from Craftsy.


More dot to dot:) Love the way it makes the star radiate!

My feathers on the back:) Not perfect but that's ok:) Learned those from Angela too:) I got to do the binding too:) And yes I had my little fan on next to me the whole time:)

Love the way the light plays up the quilting when it is draped over frame:) Love it and really didn't want it to go home:)
 
I also finished my "Sun Kissed" pillow:) Looks grand in the yard! It is a pattern from Connecting Threads.

Close up of all the stitching:)
 
Hope you had a great week and that this coming week is awesome!!!!
I have been quilting all weekend but still need to take pics:)
See ya next time!

Beautiful job on all of the quilting!! I am so glad the Dot to Dot class was helpful, it looks perfect on that quilt!! I just figured out this week that cotton batting tickles my nose...the hazards of quilting!!
