Over the long weekend, I quilted a quilt for my sister, two for a friend and finally finished "Cindy's Quilt".

I also cut out two quilts and started both of them.

Have a great Monday!

These are a few of the little projects that I worked on over the long week-end.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my family and friends. We will be going to my sister-in-laws later today. In the mean time, it is quilt, quilt, quilt!

Love to all,

The first thing that I sewed on Friday was my first block for the Pennsylvania Dutch BOM. One down, eleven to go. Have a great Monday.

I finished my November Schnibbles. However, when I was getting ready to sew the last border on, I spilled my Diet Pepsi Vanilla over it! I quilted it and threw it in the wash. BUT, not all the Diet Pepsi Vanilla came out. So, I will add this to MY stuff and not my gift stash! One of my quilting friends suggested that I tea stain the whole thing.

And, my final accompishment of the week end was starting my November Schnibbles. I am using Moda's "Cherries Jubilee". I have all of the 5" squares and triangles sewn. I was just going to try one square and see how it went. It went fast enough that I finished them!!
I did finish my brother-in-law's quilt and forgot to include it in the "photo session". Tomorrow.

I have had this quilt for about two months and finally got it quilted. I washed it when I was finished and I LOVE how it turned out!

This is Vicki's 2nd doggie quilt. I quilted this with paw prints.

I have pictures! This is Vicki's Doggie I quilt that she made for a friend. I quilted this with doggie bones!

I decided that you were probably wondering which
quilt that Julie chose. It is from Eleanor Burns and is called "Twin Sisters". I used Maywood's Willowberry and I really love this quilt.
Actually, I made two. I didn't like the quilting on the first one, so I made the second. Then, I ripped out all of the quilting on the first and re-did it. So now we both have one--mine is flannel and her's is cotton!
And, we are both happy!
I wasn't going to post today because I haven't finished anything in the last couple of days, but I have not been sitting on my fat laurels! I got my brother-in-law's quilt quilted, I taught someone how to quilt using a longarm, and have been working this afternoon on this and that.

I got home from golf yesterday and my significant other had all of the clocks turned back--2 pm! I had a pot of ham and beans simmering because my student wasn't going to get to my house until 2:30 and who knew what time we would finish up. So dinner was taken care of.

We had about two trick or treaters and at 7 pm, Wayne looks at me and says "bedtime"! I looked at the clock and he says, I thought that you knew I set the clocks ahead. So, umm, I am up at 4:30 this morning. I showered, read the paper, prepped a roast for the crock pot and logged in to see the November Schnibbles pattern--"Picnic". I got on ebay and found the pattern from Quilt Taffy and bought it. I was so anxious, I clicked the buy button twice and bought two patterns.

I went off to the golf course, arriving an hour early, which I NEVER do and played 18 holes in shirt sleeves, and the windows on the cart were all open. It was 60+ degrees, blue skies and no wind.

When I got home, my step daughter was gone--she will be staying with her brother for two months and then, we get her back. I really enjoyed her company. She left us a little thank you surprise. I let her pick a quilt yesterday. She was happy!

When I finish all of my "this and that" I will post the pics so you will see how busy I was. (Well, I don't know if busy if the right word--maybe obsessed is better?!)
