Fresh Off of Lily

Finally.....this quilt that my husband pieced for me is quilted!  I started it over a week ago on Lily, then got busy with lawns and gardening.  But ,yesterday I stayed at it until I took it of the frame.
Different look...
It went really well, and once I get work done outside....maybe I'll bind this one and this next one.
Gardening and lawns would be much easier if we could see something besides rain was a few days!

Again....

Progress on WIPs

Not linking up this morning....just an update.
I can see the end of my 100 club quilt!!!!  It has been in the frames for just over two weeks, and going very well.
This is the border where I started....and here it is now.  No, I didn't just turn it around...lol a few days left on this one!!!
I have this one on Lily...not much to see because of lighting in this room. I have a 4 foot led light above the machine, which glares on the camera.
This is partial blocks...using rulers on this one for the ditch.  And next is the border pattern...everything is freehand and ruler work.
I'm a bit slow with this one because I have outdoor chores now, and going through summer clothes.
Plus...I am binding a few quilts that needed finished.
Lots to do folks...just to get to all of it.

Here we are again people....I've been busy, but doesn't seem like I have much new to show you.

I am moving ahead with this one being hand quilted...
Slow, I did absolutely nothing over the weekend, except run the roads!
I have this order almost pieced...two more borders to add.  Now it is hanging over the ironing board; so you can't see all of it.
I'll be adding a white and then a darker green border yet.
I pin basted this one for the Coronet this morning...so one day soon I'll start quilting it.
It is still raining here too...seems to go on forever!  I have lots more to work on, but, one at a time, eh!
I want to get some binding done this week, I have my mail slot quilt to bind, and a few small items.  Need to get them in my shop.

That's it folks...for now anyway. Have a wonderful week.....Ohhh, I forgot!!   Our sewing group is working on a project together.  Five of us are each making a Giant Dahlia quilt...we have our centres finished as of yesterday.  Here they are...

Hi folks....it is raining here again, been a wet few days, and not much sun in the near future. But, the grass is green and growing!!!!  I am busy at getting quilts moving here...as you know.  If you haven't seen my last post, here is an update....
On Sunday, I finished hand quilting this customer quilt...queen size
I finished machine quiiting this one for my shop on Lily(my Coronet)...
I bound two large quilts for a lady last night....no pics I just did the bindings for her.
I have this one for my shop in being hand quilted now...
I love this quilt...can't wait to see it quilted!!!!  And I am working on sashings for an order...
The sashings will bring these star blocks together.  I am going to pin baste a customer quilt this week to load on Lily again.  Having lots of fun with this new machine, and learning lots!
I have lots more quilts piled and waiting to be quilted one way or another.   Before we know it, gardening will be cutting into my quilting time!!!!!  Lol

Have a wonderful week...

FInished!!!

Oh the feeling of a finish....this one came off the Coronet today.  It was a delight to quilt this one, called Mail Slot.  I am trying not to spend too much extra time when possible...so, meandering, loops and a little ruler work on the squares.


I thoroughly enjoyed it...everything went as planned, Coronet(Lily) works like a purring kitten.
Have  to try to finish my hand quilting on this one tonight.
Then on to more!!!!!!

Hello folks...hope this finds everyone in good spirits. I know the nicer weather is helping my mood....lol!
This past week has been busy here in my little corner of the world...getting ready for tourist season and gardening all at the same time. Hubby being late going back to work this year is a help to me with yard work, though.

My WIPs this time around are.....this Rail Fence pieced by the same lady that pieced last weeks Grandmothers Flower Garden is being hand quilted.
And this one on my Coronet(Lily), is my own Mail Slot quilt, which will go in the shop when finished. I loaded it this morning...then could not make up my mind on what to quilt on it...lol.  Tomorrow I will decide on something!  This measures 90x100" which are hanging below the machine. Lol
These next blocks are a LaMoyne Star which is a custom order I am working on.
There will be 20 blocks with triple sashings and a nine patch corner stone in each sashing. Did this one years ago too.
Besides these, I have made and machine quilted several baby quilts, a bed runner, and a couple of wall hangings for Canada's 150.
This is the wall hanging above.....these small items all need to be bound yet. Other than what I've shown you here; I have three customer quilts to be hand quilted, one customer quilt to machine quilt, and five of my husbands to quilt....plus s couple more of my own. Ours will be done both ways....depending on the quilt.

That is it, I think...stay safe and enjoy as much quilting as you can...

WIP Wednesday

Been working steady on customer quilts and starting yard work. The past couple of days have been gorgeous here...love getting outside to rake and clean things up.
I am out to the borders on this custom order...Dresden Plate...or Sunflower, depending on who calls it which.
And, I am just past the center of this Hexie quilt...hand quilting it for a lady.
Last, but not least...Merrill's fifth quilt top finished today. This is from Missouri Star Co.
Side view...
Not great view...lol. But the borders are white moss green and the deep emerald green, very pretty.
Weather is suppose to be great for a few days...so, hope to be outside more.
Have a wonderful week folks!!!!

Hey everyone...its been a few weeks since I posted anything, so here we are.  I have finished hand quilting and bound the one I was working on last time.
This is called Take Five...very simple pattern.
And I have this customer quilt in the frames and just started the hand quilting on it.  Hexies.....
This has such pretty colours!!  I have the Dresden Plates put together for an order...have to applique them next.  And....I have to get one on Lily(my Coronet) right away!!!  I spent the afternoon with a couple of friends, who just bought Coronets and had so much fun bouncing ideas and info off each other.
I have to get Lily moving again, and get quilts done for this summer.  I was baby sitting last week...which meant, no quilting. 
Here are the Dresden plates...there is a stack of 20 there.
Sashing will be in navy...and, that's it for me this time around folks!! Have a great week.

Love this Quilt!!!!

Well....we are babysitting the dogs this weekend, 2 little Yorkies who think they own the place...lol
They are so easy to take care of too.        On to quilts!!!!

I finished hand quilting this customer quilt last night...now to bind it.
It has hearts quilted around the borders and on the cream rectangle blocks. The quilting softens this quilt so much..love it. This is one of the 100 club quilts,here is mine..not quilted yet.
I put the next one in the frames tonight to start hand quilting. It is a "take five"...very simple quilt.
And, the babies...
Have a great weekend folks.

Here we are another week gone by....but nicer weather!  I am staying busy with my quilting, but wanting to get out in this lovely sunshine.  Soon.....there will be lots to do outside, can't wait!

Yesterday was our sewing day get together....had a blast. We have some fun ladies to chat and laugh with.  I got some work done on my 100 club quilt, and finished the top today.  Now it goes in a pile waiting to be hand quilted.

And in the frames being hand quilted now is this older 4 patch...

I have another one of these in a different colour that I plan on loading on Lily any day now. Then I can move from room to room if bored....lol
