And In Quilting News . . .


I promised I'd try to get a few more photos of the quilting on the Thimbleberries Lakeside quilt. Hopefully these will show a little better:



On Friday, I appliqued the first border block of the Halloween witch quilt--one of the shoe blocks--


Much of today was spent cutting strips and squares for the Schnibbles X-Rated quilt.


I started sewing it together, but it's kind of boring and tedious work, so I put it aside this evening and appliqued a second block for the Halloween border--


These applique pieces are simple and go pretty quickly. I just might have this one done in time for Halloween after all!

In between sewing, I managed to clean house--not one of my favorite weekend activities! And, of course, then there were the Olympics to watch. At least I can stay up late watching and not worry about getting up early for work, although the Wild Child and her boyfriend are coming down on Sunday, so I guess I ought to get a little sleep. Happy quilting!

Wow! If you continue to go THIS fast you'll have them all finished in no time! Do you applique by hand or is it done with some kind of interfacing?

I think you need to add at least two more projects to your worktable....just so you don't get bored again. You are amazing at the amount of sewing you accomplish. I am beginning to think you must be Martha Stewart in disguise, with lots of work-a-bees in the background putting things together for you. LOL...great job on all that you show. I do love that X-rated quilt and your quilting looks beautiful.
