Angela. Linking with Quiltville

I just realized that in all of my excitement of actually starting the new Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street Mystery I failed to post the link to get back to her site..... So here it is.

This is going to be so much fun.  At least four of our group are participating and I have only seen one duplicate fabric...

It's off to work for me.

Happy Sewing,

Next project

My next project to complete is the binding on the wall hanging for the grandson. I am going to machine sew it via Pat Sloan instructions. If it doesn't work out it is okay, this is just a panel that I practiced machine quilting on.. Boy does it look rough. But I was learning.

And the niece's quilt is finished. Yay!

Finished the binding tonight. Boxed it up and forgot to take a picture of it finished. Will do that tomorrow.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

My progress

Well I just did a mental inventory of what I have accomplished so far this year.  So here goes.

Six star quilts from shirts

Binding to go
A nine patch for a niece.. I have binding attached, ready for hand sewing.
Wall hanging for grandson...still to have binding added

Tops completed
Red heaven for a niece
Bright scrappy heaven for ?????  I haven't decided yet.

Tops in progress
Two tops made from Serendipity
Merry go round

Neutrals for a brother.. I have 2.5 strips but I am not sure what design I will use.  I may just do a variation for a 1600 jelly roll.

Fortunately or maybe it is unfortunately I have to go to work.  Not on quilting but to that place that pays for quilting...  I'd rather be sewing....

Happy sewing and God bless
