wip wednesday

I'm working on several projects this week.  One is a playquilt made with this darling fabric I've kept hidden, Monaco in pink by Monaluna.

 Quilting on my HQ sweetsixteen:

 I love the raggy binding.  It's cute and fast since there is no hand sewing.

Second project is a few quilts for charity made with strips cut from scraps.

There is a Quilting Bee this Saturday being held in our area, where many congregations come together and bring quilts that they have made during the year and donate them to a local ministry.  Displaced families who have gone through their recovery program are able to pick out a quilt to take home.  Not only does it feel good to rotate and move fabric along, but I can help families as well.  It's pretty exciting to see this event.    

I'm linked!

finish it up friday

I'm am so excited to have the main piecing finished on "Sky Fall".  I'm working on designing a border and back for it.  

In the mean time, I'm headed back to Texas where I've been working on "teakwood".  Here's what I showed you last, but since then I've finished piecing the top, and am contemplating how to quilt it.  If you go to my "pinterest" link, and look under the board "current", you will see some options that I'm thinking about.

blustery day

When we got up this morning, we found this:

With no snowplows in site, I guess all appointments need to be cancelled.  In my mind, snow days = quilting days!   Everything is cancelled, no expectations . . . 

It reminds me of the simpler days and the "pooh" videos I used to watch with my preschoolers.  Though I thought the "blustery day" was snowy.

wip - Skyfall block B

First Block B - DONE.

 I plan on finishing the remaining 11 in the next couple days.

Our grand babies were blessed last week-end.  I just had to show you their blessing clothes made by one of the other grandmothers . . . precious, aren't they?
