Look what happens when I stay home:)

I was home all week except Friday when the girls and I went to Round Rock to the quilt show. Beautiful quilts but just not a big enough venue to display them and have vendors:(  We have been 3 times hoping it would change but it still hasn't. Don't think we will go again unless it is changed.

Okay now to see what I did get done all week:)

Oh and I don't know if you know but if you click on the picture it will take you to a bigger picture:) For some reason I thought everyone knew that??

First is Carola's son's t shirt quilt.
He is in the Air Force now:)
Turned out really nice:)
Another Carola masterpiece:)
She saw the picture of the happy couple and decided to make it:)
I did feathers on both sides:)
Fun backing!
Kathi D made this one... her biggest for the Fair and Rodeo.
Had fun quilting it!
It used a jelly roll:)
I quilted everywhere except the black leading areas. They really popped!
Sue made this with fabrics her granddaughter picked.
She just wanted loops in p…

Another beautiful quilt!!!!

Well this was a short week with Guild, lunch out and Bee but did get 1 quilt finished:)
I did go a little overboard with pictures:) But I did want  you to see all of it:)

                                        It is the Vintage Compass Quilt made by Gayle:)

First I pinned on the design wall... the hexies are peeking on the left:)
Love how it turned out!!!
I had started with a darker thread and absolutely hated it so spent most of last weekend taking... um ripping it out:(
The center is perfect!!!! Love how the curve in the dark turquoise make it move:)
The back... lots of quilting!
These are draped over the quilter.... the light shows the quilting better I think? But you can't see the whole quilt.
Now you can see the 1/2 feathers in the brown border.
Well back to the wrong colored thread. I started with a new spool but I knew I wouldn't have enough so ordered more and it came in 3 days:) Yea!!!!
The center.... just awesome!
The backing again.... you can really see the quiltin…

Fall has arrived... for a few days anyway:)

It has been such lovely weather the past few days! We had a cold front come in and bring some rain and cooler temps. Of course they will gradually go up but we are thankful for whatever we get!

Hubby and I ran away yesterday to Austin to pick up one of my machines... she needed her checkup:) Then I played with the new Bernina 880. All I can say is WOW!!!!! I SO want the machine.... I did say want not need:) I keep reminding myself that! I have decided to sell my 6 needle Brother PR620 with cabinet and other goodies. So if you are interested please email me:) There is nothing wrong with it ... I just don't use it as much as I thought I would. I still have my Bernina 165 that embroiders so won't be totally without when it sells.... or I could get that 880:) ha ha!!!!

Not too many pictures this week but once you see what I worked on all week you will understand why:)

This is Becky's Glacier Star.
I had SO much fun quilting this one:)
She kinda let me play:) I searched Pintere…

I hate ragweed!!!!!

Well by the title you know I am having allergy problems this week:( ugh!!!! It went from Chenopods to Ragweed and high numbers at that:( So I am taking allergy meds every 3 hours. After 3 days of blah I am starting to perk up! I guess the old body is getting used to the ragweed? Well as long as I can get back to quilting soon I will be happy!!!

Didn't get much done this week but here is what I did.....

I forgot to post these BOM from last week... I think there are only 2 more months to go:)
Also finished this wall hanging.

Ok now to quilting from this week.....
I had started this one and finally finished this week... remember I needed a new foot and thread guide? This is the back.....
And here is the beautiful front of Erlene's Nines and Vines quilt.
She always lets me play so I had some fun!


This is Dolly's daughter's ranch name.... Diamond L.
She did a great job designing it with the twister pattern!
I just looped it as she wanted something very simple.
This is on th…
