Friday Finish

This is Graduation quilt #3!

All quilted and bound.

I'm calling these quilted lines....

I made the bumps AD LIB.
Ad lib means there was NO marking involved.

One LESS step.

I have just ONE MORE QUILT to finish
before graduation!!!

Happy Friday.

This is the quilt that I've been cuddling with this weekend.
Being under the weather is NO fun...
but it SURE it nice to have an abundance of quilts.

I made this one a long time ago.
I used a thin wool batting and HAND quilted it!
It's the perfect quilt.
Not too heavy and bulky.

Not sure what I'll be working on this week yet...

What are YOU  making???

Friday Finishes

 I was able to finish TWO quilts this week!

It DID help that they were BOTH sandwiched and

These are the first two of FOUR that need to be completed soon.

Four high school graduates will receive a little QUILT LOVE this year.

Graduations get earlier and earlier, don't they??

Believe it or not....
I still have SCRAPS in the basket!!
Even blue ones!!

Monday Making

I just returned from a great trip to Switzerland.
Right before leaving, I finally settled on WHAT
to take for HAND WORK.
The. most. important. item. to. pack!

I took along a few of these vintage dresden plates.
I have a whole stack!

After quickly machine basting twice through...
I had JUST what I needed to work on!
I am appliqueing around the outside of petals
and then I will add a center piece.

I also took wool yarn and knitting needles 
for my husband's new beanie.

I finished just in time
for a little alpine horn blowing!

What are YOU making this week???

Hello Quilting Friends!
What are YOU making this week??

I have been slowly working on a knitting project.
A cardigan sweater for one of my girls.

I've made so many  BABY sweaters...
I thought I would at least be able to FOLLOW a pattern in an adult size.
So far.....So good.
Adult sweaters do take a "TINY" bit longer!!!

(this free pattern is on ravelry HERE )

There will be a slight pause of TWO weeks for this link up party!

I will be unable to post for a couple of weeks.

Keep MAKING!!!

I'll be back!

Monday Making

After a successful auction of SMALL quilts (table mats) last weekend,
I had a couple of requests from the losers.

I couldn't repeat the small quilt exactly...
But I tried to come close.

Scraps and orphan blocks just CAN'T be
repeated EXACTLY!!

What are YOU making this week??
Thanks to ALL who link up
and share!!!

When it comes to sewing...
It was a GOOD week!!

It helps to have a few things
ALMOST finished!!!

The first quilt was almost done.
It just needed a border.
This is my third graduation quilt.

I added binding to my hand woven baby blanket!
I added a soft pink cotton binding.

When that was done....
I added a border to this scrappy, scrappy quilt!
My fourth and last graduation quilt.
NOW.... to get them ALL quilted!!!

It was a miracle that the Saw tooth border fit perfectly!!!

Getting all these ALMOST finished things DONE
makes me want to BEGIN something VERY soon!!!

My wheels are churning!!
