I'm back at it again, and only after a month of being absent. Well life gets going and before you know it, time has flown by. My good friend, ChristiANNA, lent me a book that has been changing my life! I have been decluttering my house and sewing room, with the help of my sister, many hands and all that. We have also tackled the bottom half of the garage. The rest of it belongs to my husband....
(my sister, ChrisTINA))
The part I had ordered for my TinLizzie ended up being defective (!) but luckily I had the repair guy out and her replaced it. Lizzie has been whirling ever since! These are just a few of the quilts that have been completed since she has been fixed:
Quilted, as my first, a top pieced by one of my students, Juanita.
My good friend, Stephanie, came by to play on Lizzie and quilted, with different designs in each panel, a baby quilt for her husband's secretary's granddaughter (I wish I had a finished picture).
Next, I was FINALLY able to quilt my own Fall Leaves Quilt, queen size. I just finished binding it last night and it has been folded up and put away until September, when it will make its debut as my Autumn bed spread.
Steph has been a great help of playing with, and figuring out Lizzie. She helped me get started on my fall quilt and has even bought additional patterns to download and use. She had now quilted this Black and Whit quilt for her mom and this scrappy quilt for her mother-in-law.
The quilt I was working on yesterday was my Purple Pansy Geo Quilt. This baby has been sitting around for about a year as well. And wouldn't you know it. I ran out of backing!?!?! yes, yes, I did... Well it's since been fixed and I wont make that mistake again.
A couple of quilts I am working on this month are the Star Spangled BOM by Fort Worth Fabric Studio and this scrappy crayon quilt I had found on Pintrest a while back. (not my photos, mine are still in the works)
Additionally are these two quilt tops I hope to have done soon as I would like to teach them to my students in August and September.... I have yet to buy the fabric!
Lastly are these two scrappy, rainbow, stash buster quilts I would like to attack as well. Wish me luck!
