Hello folks!! Seems like ages since I last posted, just very busy...never stop! Well; let's see what I am up to, eh...besides weeding that garden and fighting bugs!!!!
This past weekend, I finished hand quilting this customer quilt...she pieced it, and I did the quilting.
This is a wedding gift for someone special...it is king size
I took this one off my Lily (Coronet) this morning...
This is one that my husband pieced this past winter...closer looks.
Body of the quilt....next is the borders...
And the back...at least part of it...lol
I put this custom order in the hand quilting frames a few minutes ago...
Might stitch on it this evening. And I am working on this one with a friend once a week...
This is a couple of the blocks....using a layer cake with lots of pretty colours..more later on. That mauve fabric in the background is for another order I will be starting very soon.
Well, I have to get out to the kitchen before I burn supper!!! Have a wonderful week.

Hi folks...linking up to Monika at http://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com/
Well, the sun is shining this morning...not sure for how long though. It has been a dreary spring!
On to my works in progress...I have tons of projects on the go, but will show you the ones I am at right now.
This is a lady's quilt I am hand quilting...
I am just about in the Center now. It is very pretty colours, and I will show you the whole quilt when finished. She marked it ahead of time, which helps. This next one is a custom order...I've just finished piecing the Center of the quilt. Next step is the borders.
Lighting isn't great, but this is a very fresh quilt. Besides these, I have 5or 6 waiting to be quilted one way or another. And, I found the fabric I needed for another order, so that's good! I spent yesterday afternoon sewing with my friend, June. She worked on a lovely set of placemats, no pic, sorry. I worked at the quilt on my design wall above.
Well, I guess I that's it for me this week. Today I will most likely be mowing after lunch..getting pampering this morning at the hairdressers...lol.
Have a great day!!!!!!

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.

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.
