Recent progress...

I just finished my first block for the online BOW/BOM...finally.

I also made a crocodile (the pattern is actually Alligator by penguin & fish)--an inside joke at our house.

To the top left are my take five block-done--hopefully top finished this weekend.

And a dammit doll waiting for hair....

and yes--post its'--I don't know what I'd do without them!

The prayer shawl is ready to sandwich tomorrow, I don't share photos until after they've been gifted.

The Wounded Warriors quilt is coming along.

These are a few of my students first quilt tops (with their permission)

My Easy 7 Pattern  [copyright Denise Bevard 2012-all rights reserved], is now available in the store and online at Sierra Sewing. It is a 35” X 48” Comfort/Lap Quilt.

Saturday Beginners Quilt class

My Saturday Beginners quilt class, who have been making "A Piece of Cake" by Thimble Blossoms are almost done.One class left, most have decided to machine quilt. One to tie. They came out very nice, widely varied.

This one to the left was made larger than the pattern

The one  below a bit smaller

 This on to the left was made larger as well.
The one to the right is the class sample, hand quilted. The Picture  below the pieced back of the class sample. It is made of the Moda Lollipops line

Hand Quilting...

I have been busy hand quilting the Charity quilt..and yes, there are more needles going in other parts of the quilt..I have to finish quilting it so I can start on the "Math Nerd Quilt" ©Denise Bevard 2012 (below) ,so I can get the cover art for the pattern done

To the right is my Saturday Block of the Month Block

To the left is the fabric I have picked for Penny Havens Streeter's block of the week/month/day project...I am 11 block behind (started late), but hope to cut and at least get the center square done this weekend

To the right are fabrics I had picked for a Prayer Shawl. I have decided they are not the right ones for this particular Prayer Shawl and have another pick stewing over-night. Pretty sure they are the right picks, but want to sleep on it before I cut..

My Sat afternoon beginners class will be sandwiching their quilts tomorrow with any luck.

I even did a block on the Patchwork Pennies, as I was working on that machine (it is threaded with black thread) on a "secret" project--told you I am working on Christmas presents.

Now I will go make a pass at Facebook, then off to get some sleep for tomorrow.

We have squash...

One large squash
-it was delicious

One large squash plant with many more to come, and we have a monster (or two_ pumpkin plant. The tomatoes are not ready yet, and the gooseneck and acorn squash are struggling. The pumpkin plants does get me into the mood to run with fall and Halloween projects!

...and the  "Math Nerd Quilt" ©Denise Bevard 2012, is waiting its turn to get quilted so I have cover art for the pattern
