Finally a few finishes

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I posted.  I have been sewing.  Here's what I've done since the last time I posted.

First I finished the half-square triangle quilt I started on my Cambria retreat last month.

Triangle Swirl pattern by Laundry Basket Quilts
I think this also uses all Laundry Basket fabrics.  It was a kit.

Then my little sister asked me to make her a new 4th of July table topper.  The one I made her years ago was 12" square and it looked so sad on her big table so she asked me to make her a bigger one.

Scrap Jar Stars by Gigis Thimble
I also worked on some our guild's boutique items.


All those from panels.

I also signed up for Fig Tree Quilts Little Box of Fig quarterly treats.  This was the quilt from the very first box.  There was also a pattern for a towel but I haven't done that one yet.


I also took some cute pictures of my puppies.  Our Jack Russel Guy is very scared of fireworks and for the week before the 4th, people were popping them off every night.  He must be held when he's scared.

Scaredy Dog
And this one just sleeps.  She did get a little freaked out on the 4th.


I'm in the middle of quilting my 2015 Fat Quarter Shop mystery quilt.  Not sure how I want to quilt the sashing, etc.

My 750 was having some issues the last year, where it would stop in the middle of stitching for a second and then it would go again.  I've brought it to 2 service techs who couldn't figure it out and FINALLY this new kid around here went to Bernina school a couple weeks ago and will be starting a sewing machine service shop and he fixed it!  So happy.  That's why I'm able to quilt the bigger quilt.  Didn't want to battle quilting a big quilt on my 150.  

Anyway, thanks for looking.  I'm heading to St. George, Utah next week to take Phillipa Naylor at Superior Threads.  4 technique classes in 4 days.  Looking forward to it.
