Recent Finish

Well...this afternoon I finished hand quilting the last quilt before Christmas.  I do have two arriving this week to machine quilt for Christmas, but that's ok.  Here is the one I just finished...have to bind it yet.


What am I going to do without hand quilting for the next few weeks??????  I guess I can clean and get gifts wrapped, eh!!!!

Grandmother's Flower Garden Done!!!!

Yes!!!.....lol it is finished, and didn't take nearly as long as I expected it would.  This quilt measures 
112"x123"and I don't know how many little hexies!!!  But, it was easy to hand quilt...finished it yesterday just before supper. I spent the evening binding it, since I was alone last night...hubby is out of town for a couple of nights.
The back is neat..looks like chicken wire...lol.  Today I got the last one needed to be done for Christmas in the frames. This Log Cabin was pieced quite some time ago, and saved as this gift.
I got a couple of blocks quilted, then a couple of friends stopped in for a tea with me. Wasn't that nice...since I was alone?

WIP Wednesday

Here we are in November already!!!!  Linking up to Monika http://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com/.  This week, I am working like crazy to get quilts out.

I did finish machine quilting the three jelly roll quilts for a customer...two or three more coming any day.
Here they are....
I have this customer quilt in the frames being hand quilted now....about 1/3 finished.  I added borders to this Grandmothers Flower Garden, which is hand pieced.
I had a log cabin dropped off yesterday to be hand quilted....that makes three besides this flower garden here now.  But I love it!!!!!
Things are pretty well finished up outside for fall anyway.....so, quilting it is!!!!!  Ok.....I do have to clean house once in awhile, I guess.......
And I am working on my blocks for this months 100 club quilt with our fabric shop. Here is the quilt I am piecing, but mine will be queen size.
Well friends, I think that is it for this week.  Have a good one!

WIP Wednesday

Hey folks...well, my giveaway was a hit...had two lucky winners!!!!! Now my works in progress...
Today, I have a bad cold...but still plugging away.  I just finished hand quilting this large bedsize quilt for a customer...
I've done a few in these colours for her...she loves the brights!!!!! Next to go in the frames to be hand quilted is this one...another border was added since this picture.
This measures 110x125 inches.  The grandmothers flower garden was hand pieced by the lady's grand mother...I added the borders to make it bigger for her.
I finished putting this cat quilt together a few days ago for a customer...
She had most of it pieced, but got overwhelmed, and sent it to me to finish and hand quilt..it will be quilted after the flower garden. The lady who picked this finished one up a week ago ...
Brought a Bargello today for me to hand quilt. I haven't taken a picture of it yet, but soon I'll post one for you.
I also have the third jelly roll quilt ready to machine quilt....here are the first two.
 And
Now finished..... Well, that's it for me this week folks! Trying to beat this cold and get back outside to do some work.  Have a great week!!!!

What I'm working on and a very nice Giveaway!!!!!

HI folks...I would have posted this as a WIP with Monika, but since there is a giveaway...decided not to.
This week I am really crazy busy with quilts and things.  I am also working hard at hauling and piling hard wood for the next few winters.  So, on with this post, eh!!!!!!!

I am planning to put this customer quilt in the frames today...to be hand quilted. This lady has had me quilt 3or4 quilts in  these colours in the last couple of years.  Guess she loves  them...lol
It is roughly 92x100 inches.  And this next one is from a new customer...making it larger for starters.
Her grandmother hand pieced the grandmothers flower garden, but Its too small.  I am adding borders to fit a king size bed then will hand quilt it.
One more outside border to add...darker print from same line. And I have this one ready to machine quilt...jelly roll quilt.
This lady has 5 or 6 for me....this next one is finished. She will bind them.
These jelly roll quilts are all going to be gifts.

Now, for the fun!!!!  I have two giveaways for you today...sponsored by a couple of fantastic quilt shops that we all love.
In alphabetical order.....
Pam is generously sponsoring with a $30.00 gift certificate for one lucky winner.

JUdy is giving one lucky winner a $25.00 gift certificate.  How much more could we ask for???

A Couple of Finishes!!

It is Sunday evening, and quite windy here in Shepody...but has been a very nice weekend.
I have a couple of finishes for you tonight...first is the wedding memory quilt.  This is not easy for you to really see, I don't take great pics. It is made from the girls wedding gown, and her bouquet.

This piece measures 30"x36" and she plans on framing it in a shadow box.

I always feel so thrilled when they see their quilts for the first time.  Now the second finish is a quilt that I hand quilted for a customer...Lovers Knot.
  
Tomorrow brings a new day, and probably a new quilt to hand quilt will be started. I have three waiting to hand quilt, and two right now, to machine quilt...three on the way.
I am working on your giveaway too....soon!
Have a great week my friends.
