There are no idle hands here...lol. Today I stayed busy puttering!! I am ready for Christmas, so today I played. But, things needed for after holidays. I pin basted this log cabin, customer quilt to be machine quilted.
This quilt is about 96 x120...
Then I started a quilt I've been wanting to make. I will putter over Christmas with this. Here is the first block...with fabric purchased from Spruce it up Quilting...hi Lorrette!!!! And Kona Linen for background.
And, I have this crib quilt finished. This was a win from Quilter's Way, a kit...thanks so much guys. I really like it. So nicely colourful!

We are at the end of our challenge already. I did miss last month....was a hectic month for me. Please take a look here...http://quiltshopgal.com/2015-free-motion-quilting-challenge-december-challenge-with-wendy-sheppard-and-grand-prize-info/ to see more pillows.
Our professional instructor this month is Wendy Sheppard. Wendy is such a very nice person, and great teacher. I've taken a class of hers,and that is the option I chose for this one. This is from Wendy's first Learn to Machine Quilt class...I still have to sign up for the next level.
I used a continuous vine here and swirls around the border of my pillow.

Not much sewing going on, but I finished this one in time for a friend to give it to her Mom for Christmas.
She bought the fabric for this , and it is very nice! Has fleece on the back, which her Mom will love.
She is in a nursing home with Alzheimer's.
I machine quilted this on my Tiara...quilted the pineapple pattern and loops on the borders. She loves frogs, and will snuggle with these for a long time to come.

Here we are again!!!! Works in progress are adding up here. I have finished the one I showed you last time. Actually, I am binding it right now.
Poor lighting, but trying to show you the picos on the edge. Another view...
Peek at the back...
I have the nail polish quilt all pieced....
Love these boots!!!!
I did machine quilt the I Spy quilt but neglected to take a picture.
I picked up another commissioned quilt from a neighbour...no pics yet, but I will be machine quilting it soon. I will show you then....it's a gift for her Mom for Christmas.
It may kill me, but I won't be hand quilting again until after Christmas!!! I need to give my back some rest...having problems lately. So, hoping a good rest will cure that. I have one customer quilt waiting til then...and lots of my own.
I think I've run out of air, lol. I know hard to believe!! Ohhhh, I had a very nice lunch yesterday with my sewing buddies. We are all so busy right now...this was our little Christmas get together. Lots of laughs!
