WIP Wednesday

Hey everyone!!!  I am very happy to say that the weather is much more spring like lately. Still a lot of snow to melt, but lots gone too.  Now, for my woks in progress this week.

I have one border left to hand quilt on this beauty ...
I planned on finishing a couple of days ago, but didn't happen. Things get in the way once in a while,eh...lol.
I finished quilting this one on the Tiara this morning...
Close up...
Now to bind this one..
I have the t shirt quilt started....all fused and ready to cut the sashing strips.
This is going to be a king size quilt.
Next Monday is sewing day for about 10 of us at the church....fun and laughs!!  This is the pattern and fabric I'll be working on that day.
A DoNut/4patch quilt...lap size.the white is background, with the stack of charms. Then a narrow red border, then the outside polka dot border.
In a couple of days, I will have the next queen size quilt in to hand quilt, and I still have to do my pillow for the FMQ Challenge for April.

Well, I think that is it or me this week. Make sure to check out the rest of the blogs over here....http://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com/2015/04/wip-wednesday-189-tn.html with Monika, and Lee at http://www.freshlypieced.com/2015/04/wip-wednesday-too-brain-dead-to-think.html

WIP Wednesday

It is Tuesday evening, and I am feeling beat...has been a very tiresome, busy week.  I am linking up to Monika from http://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com/2015/04/wip-wednesday-188-tn.html.
Last week I finished hand quilting this sampler...lap size

I have this one in the frames...just past the halfway mark now.
Close up....
This is a kit from Connecting Threads and was pieced by my friend, Rose.

I have this throw size quilt of mine on the Tiara...just getting started with it.

I have 5 quilts waiting to be hand quilted for customers, 1 box of t shirts and fabric waiting to be turned into a t shirt quilt...king size for a customer. And a couple of more large quilts of my own to quilt. One way or the other!!!  and there should be another quilt arriving any day to be hand quilted.  And a husband on crutches!!!!!  Lol

Connie, Marla and myself are about to start this Bargello Dahlia soon....I won this pattern last year on the blog.

Wish us luck!!!!! Lol. I am anxious for this snow to melt so that I can clean my sun porch area out and get ready for displaying my quilts for tourists this year. I usually have that finished by now!!!  Been a long winter, and it started late!!!!!   Lol
On the 20 th of this month, we get together with about 10 friends to sew.  So, I have to get the fabric cut ahead of time for this pattern.  Then I'll be able to sew all day!!!!!
Well, I think I have run down for tonight...have a good week everyone

Winner...Winner!!!!!!!

we have our winner of the Speed-Sew!!!    #5.....randomly drawn

Another Finish

As you know, I am working on customer quilts....well just finished this beautiful Bargello on my Tiara.
I delivered the quilt yesterday to a very happy lady, who did a super job piecing this quilt!  I don't have the best pictures, but here is the Bargello....

this is the whole quilt draped over a chair...
a closer look at the quilting....I did big flowers all over this quilt with meandering loops joining them here and there. it couldn't have gone any better...so very pleased with it. And I must say, I love the colours in it.
