First I finally finished this top (after I got the right ruler it all came together beautifully).
The second one is from a class I started a few years ago with Sue Garmen - it's her twirly balls block. I decided to make mine from all different colors. I'm working on the last block now but here are the other 8 blocks.
The third quilt is a Stack 'n Whack quilt. My local friendship group has a challenge each year and this year was Stack 'n Whack. This is what I was playing around with.
|I've added a row since this picture was taken and i got rid of the striped side setting triangles.|
This is more like what the final project will be except that I don't have enough of the border. But thanks to my great internet search skills I was able to find 2 yards. The border fabric is what I made my stack n whack blocks from (the circles). I will have to make 4 corner circles too for the border. I'm liking what is going on and it's giving me some nice areas to quilt.
I did make some more items for my guilds boutique. We had a sew day at the local mall and had all these things cut out. Didn't finish a lot at the sew day, but went home and finished the rest.

This little guy started Kindergarten. (I blurred out teachers name). He looks so grown up.
A girl I work with husband sent this to her to give to me. I thought it was pretty funny and I plan to use it for many things in texts or emails. :)
I have about six labels to make. I really need to take a day out of sewing to set up my machine for embroidery.
I pinned 2 quilts yesterday (the triangle one and the one from the Fig Tree little green box-not pictured above) and I also cut some baby quilts for the boutique to take with me to the coast next weekend when I go on a 4 day retreat. It will be a pretty small group of us girls again. Should be fun.
Thanks for looking.
