Finished!!!

Well, I didn't expect to finish this quilt before my trip...but here it is.  It's not a good picture because I layed it on the floor, and then couldn't get back from it enough to get the whole quilt in.
It measures 80x80 inches.....not large but I really like it.

Besides what you can see...there is a 4" black border

And Connie and I each pieced a runner onThursday...pattern from ConnectingThreads....

WIP Wednesday



Linking up to Monika at http://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com/2016/02/wip-wednesday-233-tn.html
Here we are again...and I have a few pics for you. This week I am working on a new quilt top, called A Slice of Sun.
Here is the pattern...
Here are the blocks I have so far...four of these.
And...these
These blades will be appliqu├ęd on to four black squares for corner blocks.  Then to make the centre block.  It's an enjoyable project so far.
In about three weeks myself and sewing buddies will be starting a Giant Dahlia quilt top. I've made a lot of these in the past, but got tired of it and stopped. Time to try one again.
I have Girls Night Out pinned and ready to machine quilt.
Does anyone know if there are fabric shops in Inner Harbour, Baltimore?  We will be there for a couple of days next week.  Enjoy the rest of your week folks.

WIP Wednesday

Hi folks...been a couple of weeks since I posted one of these. In my defence, lol....I spent a week with my grandson and no quilting.  But got back to it and finished one last night.

This customer quilt is a large queen, and very simply hand quilted.  This pic is on the bed...
This one is draped over a chair...
And a peek at the back...
This lady knew exactly what she wanted.
I have the Center done on my 100 club quilt. You may remember...I do one with the fabric shop every year.

Next is a soft yellow pin dot border, then a border of piano keys and another yellow one. This is a disappearing 9 patch.
I have my piece finished for the blog hop coming up mid March...but you have to wait for that one!
I won't be hand quilting for the next couple of weeks, taking a break before my trip. But,  when I get back,look out!!!  Lol
I have one customer quilt waiting now, and 3 or 4 on the way.  Plus the ones to be machine quilted.
Glad to be busy!  Have a great week.

Nuts About...Blog Hop


Good morning folks! My day in our fun blog hop...and we are off and running, lol.
This has all been organized by Marian over at http://www.seamstobesew.com/...doesn't she do a great job for us? Now there are nice giveaways with our hop...so make sure you scoot over to Marian's page to get in on those!!!!

My part in the hop is a table runner I made for today.  I am nuts about many things, but my family comes first. This piece represents my husband, our sons, and our grandchildren.



As you can see...one heart for each mentioned above..love them dearly.

I found this runner on line, and it was so quick to put together.  I just tweeked it a bit, and added the cut outs from the hearts.  Thanks for being here today, and make sure you visit the rest of our list today, please.
