WIP Wednesday

Well, it's been a few weeks since I posted a WIP.  I don't think I even showed you the beginning of this quilt. 
I just finished hand quilting it...
adding a couple of pictures...trying to get the light right...not working.  the top pic is closest to the colour.
this was a nice one to hand quilt too.

this is the one I am working on now...
Just started quilting on it today.  Now, I also have my projects all ready for the RBD Gingham blog hop coming up early in Sept.  And working on the project for the Rush Hour hop the end of Sept.   can't show you these though....

I have 2 more quilts waiting to be hand quilted and another on its way.   so...still busy for awhile.  I have 3 here of my own to be machine quilted, and piecing more.  You know we have long winters...right???? Lol

was a very hot day here today. I mowed the lawns and picked fresh veggies for supper. In a couple of days I should have peas ready to harvest. this keeps me busy this time of the year. Enjoy the WIPs this week.

What is going on here lately

it is not sewing!!  I am getting a little sewing and quilting in, but not the usual at all...LOL
It's all because of this.....



One of our best gardens is this year.  I froze 28 pint bags of green beans in the past few days and eating lots of beet greens and Bsby carrots.  Besides  making pickles.


These are looking nice now too...

so; I am still here...just not with quilt pictures?

Tah Dah!!!!!!

I sat up a little late last night and finished hand quilting this beautiful Batik belonging to a customer in Alberta.  I love this bright quilt, but Batiks are a little hard to hand quilt.  .we got there though...LOL
here it is....

isn't it just gorgeous?????

This afternoon, I quilted this quilt on Tiara for a friend.
she made this for her grandson who is 5 years old....take a look at the back, will you....
The front is a panel in the center...she built around it with gorgeous fabrics....and he picked out the soccer players for the back....love it!!!!!  good job June.

Have a great weekend everyone!!!!

WIP Wednesday

Here we go again...I missed last week as I didn't have much to show. I have been so busy weeding the garden and thinning vegetables out, mowing the lawns....and it is hot!  But summer is short, so not complaining about heat.  I am complaining about my potato bugs though...LOL.   where the heck do they come from?????? I squash those things twice a day... And they multiply each time I go back out...

This week I am close to the end of the Batik quilt I started hand quilting 2 weeks ago.
This is the quilting...all in the ditch except the border.
Here you can see I have 2 rows of blocks and the border left to quilt.

I am really busy working on projects, but can only share a peek, as they are for the Sept blog hop.
this is one of them..using RBD gingham

another...LOL

the next 2 are peeks at other pieces for the hop....

fabric ready to get into....and

A peek at one ready to quilt....sorry, but have to wait til Sept to see these.

When I finish hand quilting the batik quilt, I have 3 more here waiting, that belong to customers, and 1 more to arrive.  So, I will be busy for sometime.  I also have a piece to make for the Rush blog hop the end of Sept.    Fun, fun, fun!!!!
