Works in Progress


I've had allergies all day today. I ended up taking Benadryl which makes me very sleepy. I thought I'd show you what I've been working on in the last few days. I didn't get too much done today!

As you can see, I've started sewing my scrap quilt together. It's coming together quickly. I think using the design wall was very helpful. I moved around the blocks a lot but finally came up with something I liked. Four rows done, three to go!!


I'm sewing down the binding on the Tone It Down quilt. This may take awhile!  It finished approximately 75" X 93". I did work on this today while sitting on the couch. It kept me warm too! I like the contrast of the blue binding.  It's exactly the look I was hoping for!


I started a few Nickita bags this past weekend. I just quilt a simple meander to keep the layers together. This one is for my daughter. Isn't this the cutest fabric? It's very appropriate for my family. I love seeing kitties go shopping!

That's it for now. It's supposed to be quite warm here tomorrow. I hope my allergies go away so I can enjoy the nice weather!

  4. Beautiful job on the quilting. You can see how much thought you put into making each section shine.
    Your squares quilt makes me think of modern art.

More Machine Quilting

I finally started machine quilting the scrap quilt I made a little while ago. It took me forever to decide what to do with that border....
