A bit of what I did with my long weekend…

I finished the quilt top below-it’s a class sample for a yet to be scheduled class (will post details when they are finalized.) It is made from the Moda Lollipop collection. The Back is pieced, but you have to wait till it’s done to see it.

I also worked on some more blocks for the Skyline Church Class Quilt…see you ladies at 10am on Saturday! Remember your fabric, cutters, machines, thread, irons…..and coffee!!  J

 If you have questions, or need help remember to write them down (that way you won’t stress over forgetting what you wanted to ask.) Most of all get ready for fun, which is what we are aiming for. Our goal Saturday is to have everyone have some blocks finished.

And the back of a block because someone asked  J

Irons in the fire

I recently gave a spech at Toastmasters, explaining the passion I have for quilting. In that speech I said I normally have a least three quilts in the works. One I am actively quilting, one I am peicing or appliqueing, one I am planning...well I have a bit more than that at the moment…

The one I am actively quilting-This was the last quilt top my Grammy made.

The ones I am piecing-Patchwork Pennies

I am also planning my “Easy 7” quilt,   QUILTS FOR KIDS CHALLENGE,  Hoffman 2012 challenge,  and the Hip Hip Hurray Challenge. Now not all challenge quilts get completed…sometimes they just don’t “gel” in time..but I think I can get these all done if the plans in my mind comes out in fabric the way I think they will. And I am working on a class sample for another possible class…stay tuned.
The pillow covers to match the mystery quilt done-already been used for tent building by my grandaughter Abi. They met with her approval.
