"Summer In The Park" HUH?

I finished up two quilts this week-end.  One is called "Summer In The Park" by MSQC.  I made it with a Honeybun called "Aviary".  It is an old collection but after watching Jenny's video, I knew that I had the perfect fabric!  I need to sew the binding on, but rather than do that...

I sewed a border on a QOV for my friend in Montana and made a scrappy long table topper.  People are always asking me for a long topper and this one is ~58".  I just have to quilt and bind it.

My son and daughter in law are coming over for Thanksgiving, sew I have been doing a little extra cleaning every day.  By the time they get here, the house should be ready for company.  LOL!

Until next time...

Bits and Pieces

I have been finishing up bits and pieces of projects this morning. I had to fix the binding on two quilts and then listed them on my Etsy Shop.  I dug out the backing for a quilt of the Colorado Avalanche for a friend.  This quilt is next on the quilter, sew I can get it finished by tomorrow, and off to it's owner.

Last night I finished quilting a Judy Niemeyer quilt for a friend.  Will get it shipped off today.

I think that there is a saying:  "physicians heal thyself".  I brought DH home from the hospital today as his body healed itself--no surgical intervention!!  He is settling in and I am back to sewing!

Until later...

Quilt Retreat

I had to come home early from my quilt retreat, family emergency.  But I finished one of my projects or so I thought until I re-read the directions.  I need to put borders on the sides.  The pic is a little dark but will show again after it is quilted!

Back to check on my patient!

New Finishes

The golfing season is winding down, sew I have been catching up with some of my quilting.  The first is a Christmas quilt made with Moda's "Blitzen".  Sorry, I don't remember the pattern, but it was in one of the quilting magazines last year.

The second quilt is made with Moda's "Whitewashed Cottage" and is perfect for a little girl!

I am heading out on Thursday for a quilt retreat with one of the local guilds.  It is going to be FUN!
