WIP Wednesday


Please join us!!

Here we are at another mid week...time is flying!  Linking up to Monika at http://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com/2016/04/wip-wednesday-242-tn.html

I am having a fantastic week here in Shepody, N.B....working outside, then taking a break inside at one quilt or another.  Things are really moving along with my quilting...better not jinx it...lol
I am hand quilting this order for a lady who has got me to make quite a few quilts for her.
Sorry...I turned the quilt a couple of hours ago, which means you can't see the quilting...hmmmm
But I am loving this quilt...such soft colours.  I mentioned a monopoly quilt last week, well it is finished. Now, it's not my kind of quilt, but the man wanted this one..lol

draped over a chair...
Couple of the blocks...


I have to find out where he got those blocks!!!    Lol

I still have a few of my own to quilt and a few more customers.  This next one is a bed runner from a lady I met on the cruise.
Now in this pic, it's not pieced yet...can't wait to see it finished!  I'm done ranting for this time round folks...have a good week.

Monday.....Monday......

It has been a good one here today.  It was seasonal temps, and I got lots done.  I was outside in the sun, edging one of my flower beds...nice to be out.  I also finished piecing this custom order.

This is a very pretty quilt that I will start hand quilting in a few days.
I finished quilting this next one on my Tiara this afternoon. This is a disappearing nine patch that I did with our local fabric shop...pieced on a monthly basis.

I am working on the binding of a customer quilt now. And will start piecing a monopoly quilt soon.
This is the finished sampler from last week.

See you later folks...have a great evening.  I know it's really Tuesday, but no song called Tuesday...Tuesday.  Lol

Almost forgot...I opened my shop this afternoon, and had this wonderful lady from Israel in for a talk...so very nice.

WIP Wednesday

I am linking up to Monika from http://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com/2016/04/wip-wednesday-240-tn.html.

Today, I was very busy with my quilting and sewing. My WIPs are many...lol, and growing, I'm afraid. Now, that is a good thing for me!!!
I am 3/4 through the hand quilting on this lovely sampler quilt.
One  row of blocks and the outside borders to do. I have this Disappearing nine patch pin basted and ready to quilt on the Tiara
It has a piano key border plus another yellow pin dot border besides what you can see here.
I am piecing rows now for a custom order...here is the fabric and blocks for you to see.
Pulled fabric...
Blocks...
And a start on the rows...they are on point, sitting very crooked here.  Lol, design wall is a bit high!!!
I have placemats to make for a friend, and a quilt top on the way to me from The U.S.

I have a few quilts of my own waiting, but I'll get to them eventually.  Have to get my shop ready to open in a few weeks too. It's a busy time of year, but I love it!

I hope you all have a fantastic week!!!!

Quilt Qwazy Queens Blog Hop



 Hi folks...it is my day to show you what I am qwazy about!!  First of all, a huge thank you to Marian from http://www.seamstobesew.com/ for the hard work she puts into these hops for all of us. She has arranged a number of fantastic giveaways too!!!!!

FQS is also offering a 10% discount on purchases with the coupon code seamstobe316.  

I was introduced to quilting by my late mother in law...best thing she could done for me! I have never looked back...
I was a very traditional quilter for many years...then came blogging, lol.  Love my blogging friends, and I have learned so much from all of you!  Now, I do traditional and more modern quilting as much as I can.  I make quilts to sell, I hand quilt and machine quilt them...also . I hand quilt and machine quilt for others.  As you can see on my blog...I usually have a stack of quilts waiting to be quilted.

Now, I am going to show you a few of my pieces...this Remembrance Poppy is my favorite. It is hand quilted.
This next one is a customer quilt that I hand quilted. 
This is one I made as a Thank You to our local detachment.
I made three of these for my grandsons for Christmas.
This t shirt quilt for my oldest grandson.
This is waiting to be quilted...


Ok....I could do this forever!!!  Lol. I want to show you something that I have only done once...a Bargello. I had put this off for so long,but loved it in the end!
And with leftovers from this piece....I made this piece for today. 

Well, I will leave you with that...and my giveaway from Aurifil (Joanna Figueroa Farmhouse) just leave a comment and tomorrow morning I will do a random draw.  Good luck to everyone! Make sure to visit the list below, and Marian above for more goodies today.

WIP Wednesday

It's been a while since I posted one of these. I was away on a cruise for ten days, and just haven't been around lately....sooooo, let's see what we have.

Linking up to Monika at http://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com/2016/03/wip-wednesday-237-tn.html. Well, I am back at it...trying to get myself motivated to make some progress around here!
Been home for a week now, and I have a customer quilt in the  frames being hand quilted.  It is over half quilted as of tonight and going smooth. This quilt was pieced several years ago...I get the pleasure of finishing it.


I picked up a sampler quilt today to hand quilt...haven't looked at it yet though.  I still have this one waiting to be quilted on the Tiara.
I got a custom order this past week from a long time customer for a queen size quilt for a wedding gift.
So, I need to start piecing this one soon....she has been good to me!
I have fabric cut for two casserole carriers to make with our sewing group on Monday. And....I have my post ready for my day in the Quilt Qwazy Queens. Blog hop....my day is Thursday of this week.
Well.....I think I am done for the night. I hope you are following the hop, schedule is in my last post.
You know i have a stack of quilts of my own waiting to be quilted!!!!!
