Coaster Swap

So, I took part in the Coaster Swap held over at Quilting Gallery.  My partner is the lovely Deborah from Italy.   I quickly snapped a few pictures before going to the post office to mail out.  I figured this would be a good time to practice my hand quilting especially since they are so small.  They finish at 4 1/2 inches.  My sewing machine has a beautiful blanket stitch but I could not figure out how to use it so I just did it by hand.











Linking up to Quilt Story, WIP Wednesday and Finish it Up Friday.

Farmer's Wife

I've gotten a few blocks done this week.  I can't wait to get this quilt done, it's going to be soooo pretty!

Block 16 - Calico Puzzle


Block 20 - Churn Dash


Block 21 - Contrary Wife


Back to sewing.


I made it!

Finally!

I'm all caught up with the Start Surround Quilt-a-long.  The blocks are looking so very pretty and I can't wait for the next set of instructions.  I've actually laid out one block and it's so pretty - big but pretty.

Here are pics of my blocks for this week's assignment.

Aiming for Accuracy Quilt A Long

Last week was spent taking care of the little ones who were both sick. As such there was very little sewing going on. I did manage to finish up my third block for this quilt along. I am still behind but hope to catch up this week.   The fabric line is California Girl by Fig Tree.

 Block 1


Block 2


Block 3


This Saturday I'm taking a machine quilting class from 10am to 4pm so I'm really excited about that.  I already have my quilt to practice on.

Now back to finishing up various projects.
