Idle Hands...

There are no idle hands  Today I stayed busy puttering!!  I am ready for Christmas, so today I played. But, things needed for after holidays.  I pin basted this log cabin, customer quilt to be machine quilted.
This quilt is about 96 x120...
Then I started a quilt I've been wanting to make.  I will putter over Christmas with this.  Here is the first block...with fabric purchased from Spruce it up Quilting...hi Lorrette!!!!  And Kona Linen for background.

And, I have this crib quilt finished.  This was a win from Quilter's Way, a kit...thanks so much guys.  I really like it. So nicely colourful!
Well,that is my day...have a good week.

FMQ Challenge/Dec.2015

We are at the end of our challenge already.  I did miss last month....was a hectic month for me.  Please take a look here... to see more pillows.

Our professional instructor this month is Wendy Sheppard. Wendy is such a very nice person, and great teacher.  I've taken a class of hers,and that is the option I chose for this one. This is from Wendy's first Learn to Machine Quilt class...I still have to sign up for the next level.

I used a continuous vine here and swirls around the border of my pillow.

Shot of the border....
Thought I'd make a funky Christmas pillow.

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Last Quilt before Christmas

Not much sewing going on, but I finished this one in time for a friend to give it to her Mom for Christmas.
Close up...and more real colour...
She bought the fabric for this , and it is very nice!  Has fleece on the back, which her Mom will love.
She is in a nursing home with Alzheimer's.
I machine quilted this on my Tiara...quilted the pineapple pattern and loops on the borders.  She loves frogs, and will snuggle with these for a long time to come.

WIP Wednesday

Here we are again!!!!  Works in progress are adding up here.  I have finished the one I showed you last time. Actually, I am binding it right now.
Poor lighting, but trying to show you the picos on the edge. Another view...
Peek at the back...
I have the nail polish quilt all pieced....
Need a better
Love these boots!!!!
I did machine quilt the I Spy quilt but neglected to take a picture.

I picked up another commissioned quilt from a pics yet, but I will be machine quilting it soon. I will show you's a gift for her Mom for Christmas.
It may kill me, but I won't be hand quilting again until after Christmas!!!  I need to give my back some rest...having problems lately. So, hoping a good rest will cure that.  I have one customer quilt waiting til then...and lots of my own.

I think I've run out of air, lol. I know hard to believe!! Ohhhh, I had a very nice lunch yesterday with my sewing buddies. We are all so busy right now...this was our little Christmas get together. Lots of laughs!

Have a fantastic week everyone...stay safe!
