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.
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.

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.

Hey folks...keeping in touch with fellow quilters...linking up to http://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com/. Last week I showed you this flimsy I had put together.
Loving it!! And this one I am almost finished hand quilting.
This week, I pieced this baby quilt to be hand quilted...
I also have a customer quilt identical to the blue one above, but smaller to hand quilt. And, I am piecing a second quilt for the same lady. I will take pics another time for you.
I am very busy right now with orders....so, my talented husband has stepped up to help me. Here is one he just finished piecing, and is at another!
