WIP Wednesday

Good morning folks....linking up to http://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.ca/
It has been getting quite chilly here lately, but milder today with rain. Rain gives me headaches...but I'll survive!
Well, works in progress.....there are several, but I have a few pics for you.
Right now, I am hand quilting this hand embroidered piece...
It is a queen size quilt for her grand daughter. And you are looking at it sideways in the frames.
On the design wall is this little throw size quilt.
Have to add a little border yet. And I did finish Marla's Giant Dahlia...here in it is.
And a close up of the border...not easy to see it.
It turned out very nice.  I have this one ready for Lily, it's to get at it!!!
I've been Christmas shopping, but hopefully really soon!  Have a wonderful day!

What I'm Up To

Good morning folks....sunny, but a little chilly here. It was -1C last night, but my sweet little Hibiscus doesn't realize it yet...lol
Still blooming...only one, but blooming!!!!
As for me...I am still keeping busy with quilts. Right now, I am hand quilting Marla's Giant Dahlia.
I am going to show you a peek at the earlier stage of this...then Marla will show it finished.
This is just as I put it in the frames....I am half way across the quilt now. It is a lovely quilt!!
Besides this, I am machine quilting a few baby quilts...no pics, had a craft sale over the past weekend, which was fun.  I have several quilts waiting to be hand quilted for customers, and will add borders to my Haley Rose quilt top...pics to follow later on.
Now, back to my lemon bread in the oven...lol.   Have a good one...

WIP Wednesday

I haven't posted lately....waiting for this finish.  My Giant Dahlia  is now ready to be bound.
I've made lots of these, but been a few years...enjoyed it again.

A couple of views of it.....  I have so many works in progress, it is beyond crazy...6 or 7 tops of my own to quilt, and at least that many for others, isn't life grand.
Enjoy your week folks!!!!

A Peek...

Good morning everyone, is a cloudy Sunday morning here...waiting for much needed rain.  I wanted to let you see how my Giant Dahlia is progressing...so, here is a pic of it as of this weekend.

I am going up through the center of it now...hand quilting this one, and loving this quilt.
You might remember that five of us are making them...pics back in older posts.

WIP Wednesday

Good morning folks...on my way to the garden, so a quick post.  I finished this one this morning for a lady...Christmas gift for her granddaughter. The second quilt is for her too.

The back...
Her other quilt...a throw

No more quilting til next week...our huge community turkey supper is this Saturday...so, I will be on the run after today.  There are turkeys to cook, pies and rolls to make, veggies to peel.  The whole community pitches in for this...even folks outside the community help out by serving meals, doing dishes, etc.

Have a wonderful weekend.

A Finish

It seems my posts are getting too far apart lately.  I used to post constantly, but lately. I don't know why, but seems I am rarely here.  I hope to change that...here is a quilt I finished piecing this past week. It is the Carpentar Star....fabric came from Spruce it up Quilt shop in my province. I don't get there near as often as I would like.  This color pallet is not the norm for me, but it is growing on me...lol

I hope to make another soon...very quick pattern.  I am also enjoying the end of my garden lately.  I have mixed feelings about that...nice to see the end of the work, but will miss the fresh veggies!!! I have been digging potatoes for a few days...still more to dig.  And picking ripe tomatoes from the vines too.
They are such a treat!  Our Annual community turkey supper is next weekend...ohhhhhhhh, the fun and the work!!!!  Have a wonderful weekend all...

Sewing Day

Well, I got together with six lady friends today for a sewing day!!!! Two others stopped by at lunch to visit and see what was going on.  We always have a wonderful time...catch up on summer news, and have a little show and tell.

I took these for show and tell...
And this was my project to finish up today...I had made the blocks back in May...finished the top today.
It is called "Slice-a-Block" by Rob Appell from Missouri Star Co book.  You can see a bit of the border at the top of the pic...black border. This measures roughly 70x80 inches.
The coloured blocks are a swirled  marble like I used in my snow geese...here.
Good day all around!!!!  Have a nice week everyone!!!!!
