Great backing!
Patricia sent me this lovely baby quilt and wanted loops and stars on it.
I quilted them in a light grey.
Would love some of that backing fabric in my stash!!!
She also sent me this table topper.
The circles are hand appliqued and the blocks are like a stack and whack but only using 4 pieces if fabric.
Definitely a red and white quilt! I have one more of hers to quilt:)

Busy week! Got some quilting done and a road trip with my bee this week:)

Our Bee went to Taylor to visit E Jays. It is a quilt shop that is closing:( They have a new owner but she can't afford the inventory. Found a few items:) Then had lunch next door at the Lucky Duck:) Funny name but really good burgers and fries:) Then off to Georgetown and Poppy's. Found a ruler and some Grumpy cat fabric:) Then back home:) Was a full day and lots of fun!!

This week I am home everyday so hopefully make a dent in the closet! Hubby has to go out of town for a work training and will be gone overnight so I get to play as long as I want:) yea!!!!

Okay here is what I got done this week....

The Officer's wives group  makes a raffle quilt for their Bazaar in November. I have been very lucky to quilt most of them:)
This one was a lot of fun! I was on feather overload I think:) Or I just love them:)
Love the machine embroidered snowmen too! Was going to ask about them but I really need no more…

Welcome September!!!!
