Hi is Tuesday, and a gorgeous day here in Southern New Brunswick.  I have been cooking, cleaning, went for a walk...and as the ice is melting from our pond....I can watch the goldfish swimming around. Our pond water is at its best this time of the very clear.

Now....quilting is going like crazy here!  We had our group sewing day yesterday, and I had a blast!
Now, to explain....first off, I forgot my lunch!!!  Well, I ate better than always great friends looking out for you, eh.  Then, half hour into the morning, I realize I didn't have all the fabric I needed with me.   So.....what did I do all day?   Well, I helped some of the girls with their projects.  I put in a non boring day!!
Now, on to my works in progress....I finished my Big Ten quilt on Lily Saturday morning.

Freehand flowers and leaves all over this one.  And Sunday evening, I finished hand quilting the Geese Variation, made by Merrill, my husband. I'll have to take a pic of the back for you too.
Here's a better one....


Will get a better pic of this later on...not seeing two of the nicest borders here.  I put this customer quilt in to be hand quilted this afternoon.
Can't wait to get at it!!!!  Have a fantastic week everyone...I'm off to get a tea and relax a bit.

WIP Wednesday

Hey's everyone's week going?  I am busy working away at quilts...still no real cleaning going on...oops!
On the weekend, I finished this Wallflower on Lily...
I love this quilt, large freehand daisies in borders, ruler work in the ditches, and stippling in blocks.
I also finished hand quilting this Big Star quilt for a friend...

What I'm Working On....

Hey folks, hope everyone has had a good weekend.  Mine went too fast, but, enjoyed it.  This afternoon we got to watch two of our grandsons play hockey...I love it!!!

On to quilting, eh...I have this customer quilt in being hand quilted.
I'm just past the center with the quilting.  I have my "Wallflower" quilt on Lily, just getting started with it.
I'm freehand quilting flowers in the borders, then I will do some ruler work with freehand in the blocks.
Will be puttering in the sewing room this week too...working a bit on a couple of table runners, and some bindings.  Then, I have to start piecing a quilt for a, lots going on.

I'm hoping someone might sneak in while I sleep and do a little of my spring cleaning!!!!  Maybe???

Small, Smaller, and Smallest

Well folks, how are you enjoying the hop so far??? We have some very talented people sharing their work with us...right? I want to thank Carol, from Just Let Me Quilt for hosting for us again.

This time, I have a little table runner to show is Echos table runner from Connecting Threads.
The top is pieced with Batiks, and it is one that goes together very quickly.
A closer look so you can maybe see the quilting a little.  It is swirls in gold Glide thread done on Lily.
This next project wasn't done for this hop....but, they are small, so.....going to show them to you.
These are from a paper pieced pattern called Tall Tree Trim...kind of neat, eh.  Here are a couple of small ones from the past...mug rugs with photos printed on fabric. cushion

Please visit everyone on the list below and show some love.  Thanks for visiting!!!

Loving this Quilt

I finished the cross stitch quilt last week, but I can't show you it is a wedding gift from my customer.   But later, you will see it.  So......on with the next one, eh!! I love this Log Cabin quilt done by a lovely lady.
Her colour choices are fantastic, and keep the whole quilt soft. I also machine quilted this little one yesterday, (not quilted here)
You gotta love Jenny Doan!!!!
Well, just got back from a 4 Klm walk with hubby, now have to have tea and get to the sewing room!

Good morning that the excitement of the blog hop is over, I am settling In to work.
Right now, I am hand quilting a gorgeous cross stitched quilt.  I can't post it yet though, because it is a gift from my soon.
Besides that, I finished quilting this "Slash Block" yesterday on Lily...did a geometric design this time.
Closer...a Missouri Star pattern.
And I pieced this wall hanging...
This is an Attic Window from Jenny at Missouri Star...and working on the borders of my 100 club quilt.
This is what it is like...will post a pic when finished
I also have three customer quilts waiting to be hand quilted....and about 6-8 of my own...yikes!!!!
Ok.....finished this it is!

Thank you to everyone who took part in this hop...had a blast!  And a big thanks to all who visited.
The random draw pulled out a winner for the gift certificate from Mad About Patchwork.  And she is!!!

  1. Two sweet projects; I loved both. The RicRac added a special touch to the pillow top. The other project is adorable with the branch and the hearts. What a talented hubby to have drawn those owls for you. Happy Heart Day.

    Congratulations LJ
