WIP Wednesday!!!!!

Linking up to Monika at http://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com/2016/06/wip-wednesday-251-tn.html
Good morning all......another week rolling by, and we have had hot weather here, windy but hot.  Getting a little break this morning...suppose to see a little shower. My garden needs it badly!

On to WIPs now...I am about  to finish hand quilting this custom order...
This is a full size quilt in soft mauves...a bit difficult to quilt because the markings don't show much.
This is in progress in my sewing room....I've made these before for my grandsons...hockey.
Center is finished, and hanging there over the ironing board!
And this one is still waiting to be bound...
This modern throw size quilt is the same as an order I had last year.
I have a bright one waiting to go in the hand quilting frames next...pics later.

Have a great day!!!! I am off to clean house a bit, and hopefully finish that quilt later today

WIP Wednesday

Hello folks....linking up to http://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com/2016/06/wip-wednesday-249-tn.html

I am going to show you the quilt I just finished hand quilting on Sunday...Big Star from Missouri Star Co.
I love this quilt, measuring 112x112 inches.
And this is the one I am hand quilting now....Floral Arbor.
The is a difficult one to see the quilting on...a custom order for a wedding gift.
I have this one on my Tiara quilting it now too...
Can't remember the name, but the yellow blocks sort of form a pinwheel. I'll show you again when finished. I have another order for w wedding gift too, but haven't picked a pattern out yet...later.
Have a good week everyone!!!! Thanks for visiting.

Newest finish!!

Yesterday I finished hand quilting this large quilt. It measures 112" square, and I love it!  It has wonderful  fabrics in it...nice to work with.
I have one more side to finish binding, back got tired last night...lol ...had to quit!

Draped over a chair...
On bed, but can't step away enough to see the whole quilt.
Well, back to it after housework is done today. Then on to the next one!!!!!

Opposites Attract!!!!!

IHey folks!!!......my day to take part in this blog hop organized by Marian over at http://www.seamstobesew.com/.  Have you had fun so far????  We are really lucky to have the great giveaways too!!  Fat Quarter shop and DJ Inkers have been so generous.

Now for my part in this one, I made a little table runner.  We were allowed 3 colours, but I stuck with 2, and I did keep it under the required size.

This is done with a soft purple and chartreuse( light yellow/green).  The pattern came from a quilt that I just custom made.  This made the choice really easy..lol
Another look at it....with my tulip blossom in a large cup.

And here is the quilt that the idea came from....and the true colour of the fabric.  Amazing what lighting does, eh!!!
To get in on the giveaways, please go over to Marians blog with the link above.  Thanks for visiting!!!

Today's schedule...

Wednesday, and Sunny!!!!

I am not linking up to anyone this morning...just letting you know what I'm up to.  This week, so far, I've finished hand quilting this customer quilt...
Another angle....
Back, which is a dark army green print...doesn't look it here though.
I bound it last night.  This qult is all a fantastic flannel.
I machine quilted this lady's crib quilt yesterday too....fireside on the back( like minky). Have to do the binding later today.

I spent the morning today mowing lawns...that time again!!!! Love it...

I am working a little on my snow geese quilt...pics later, and going to put this one in to hand quilt soon.

It measures 112" square...anxious to get at it. On the weekend, I will be buying fabric for a new order.
Once I get it, I'll post a pic of to with the pattern I'll be doing.
I also have a couple of runners to take pics of, and I have my project all ready for the blog hop starting June 1st.

Have a wonderful week all!!!!!
