this post is for my friend who's daughter ordered this quilt. they will enjoy seeing it come together. the stages aren't much to see for us who make quilts...but for someone who doesn't ; it is quite a process.
The pile of fabrics all labelled with letters and numbers. This is the first quilt that required this...so very many small pieces and similar shades.
then the first few pieces connected...
I will post more of this as I work at it.

This is an ironing pad I made this week with the girls in my sewing group.
And this is a duffle bag that we made together....we each are working on one of these.
Here is the link to the bag instead of adding too many pictures here....http://marjoriesbusycorner.blogspot.ca//

Oh I had one fun day with my sewing buddies yesterday!!!! In the afternoon I met with Connie and Marla to make an ironing pad that is so simple and can be carried anywhere! the tutorial was found on "Little Birdie Secrets".
then after supper the 3 of us met with Judy and Rose to make duffle bags. You may have seen Marla's yesterday...she did hers a few days ago. Here is mine....the rest will come later.
The other side......and next is the inside pockets.

Another snowy week here in New Brunswick ,Canada. I want to see grass and flowers soon...or I am apt to buy plastic and stick them in the snow!!!! Lol. I have been really busy with quilts this week too...having lots of fun!
I have completely finished the DWR and emailed the customer...sent her pictures. She was thrilled and she picked out the label for the back of it...as it is an anniversary gift. So; we are both very happy right now! Here are a few pictures...now the lighting is dead poor with this snowy day..but take a look.
I finished quilting my Garden Fence on Tiara....need to bind it.
Now the back
In case you didn't see last Saturdays projects...here they are
You can go to my last post to see the rest of them...four of us got together and each made a casserole carrier.
I made one more set of Stash Star blocks.
I have this quilt in the frames and started the hand quilting today.
and this is the stack of fabric for the Poppy quilt order.
Well; that is it for this week folks. I am linking up toneedleandthreadnetwork and now to Richard and Tanya
