Borders are On!

Good morning everyone...it has turned cold here, went from raining to freezing just like that!
I have more progress happening...I finished adding borders to Big Ten, and love it.  This qult is different...a lot of pattern going on, but classic blacks and whites!
Now, if I can just get at the quilting!  I have tops piling up here.  After the holidays, I need to quilt!  I quilted this little one yesterday on Lily...got a last minute order.
And working on piecing my 100 club quilt...garden fence with some of these Fabrics...
That is coming together...Feb. is our last month for picking up fabrics.
Started a piece for Feb too....still can't show you though....lol

IN Progress

I am putting in the days before Christmas by sewing...imagine!!!  Lol. This is my second one with this fabric...loving them!
Here is the first...I did add a red plaid border to this one.
This is the second one in progress..

WIP Wednesday

Good evening folks...a rainy day here today.  Although it is only Wednesday, I have had full days.  Monday was our group sewing day, which is always a good time. I bound my Birch Tree quilt.
I made it an early day because I wanted to get ready for our Christmas gathering at a friend's home.
Our community group gets together here every year for a potluck supper and gift swap.  It was so much fun..lots of laughter!
Tuesday, I did Monday's housework...lol, and some wrapping of gifts. Then out to another Christmas gathering...I know!!!  Lol.  Food everywhere!!!  This was our little sewing group having potluck and we did something different after our meal.  We each brought 3 FQS to the party....we played a game called Left, Right and Centre,  the winner of each game won 3 FQs..there were 9 of us, so we played a few games!!!  We laughed til it hurt!!!
Today, I did a little hand quilting, and pin basted a friends quilt to load on Lily tomorrow. Pics after Christmas. I do have a quilt on my design wall...Big Ten is done in bold blacks and whites.
This is only about half of the quilt...large blocks that won't all fit on the wall. It is pieced much like Take Five quilt pattern. I have my months blocks for the 100 Club quilt to piece yet, and tons of quilt tops to be quilted....but after Christmas now.
Well...i think that is about it for me.  Have a wonderful week and safe weekend!

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!!!!
