Catching up…..

Wow…cant believe that it has been 10 days since I have posted.  Time to catch you all up with what has been going on here.

First of all, I finished the quilt top for the guild raffle quilt.   The photo isn’t the best, but you can get the idea…..

At the last Charity Bee meeting, we auditioned a bunch of different inner borders and decided that the lighter Turquoise was the best.   We have a darker one for the binding.

The next project was to get the rest of the blocks ready for the quilt that Mom and I are working on together.  She is enjoying doing the hand applique, so I have been madly trying to get more ready to send to her.  

On the Fourth of July, son Brian and D-I-L Amber spent the day with us so I enlisted Amber to help with picking fabrics…..

On Saturday, I finished fusing all of the other blocks and have now sent another set off to Mom.

The pattern that I was using had some funky birds included in the blocks and I wasn’t that excited about them so I decided instead to leave off the birds and just make the blocks different sizes……

Should be fun when it comes time to put the quilt together!!

 

Finally, I have a good friend who is having a BIG birthday and I decided that I want to make her a lap quilt…..by next Saturday!!   So far, so good……
