Catching up…..

Wow…cant believe that it has been 10 days since I have posted.  Time to catch you all up with what has been going on here.

First of all, I finished the quilt top for the guild raffle quilt.   The photo isn’t the best, but you can get the idea…..

At the last Charity Bee meeting, we auditioned a bunch of different inner borders and decided that the lighter Turquoise was the best.   We have a darker one for the binding.

The next project was to get the rest of the blocks ready for the quilt that Mom and I are working on together.  She is enjoying doing the hand applique, so I have been madly trying to get more ready to send to her.  

On the Fourth of July, son Brian and D-I-L Amber spent the day with us so I enlisted Amber to help with picking fabrics…..

On Saturday, I finished fusing all of the other blocks and have now sent another set off to Mom.

The pattern that I was using had some funky birds included in the blocks and I wasn’t that excited about them so I decided instead to leave off the birds and just make the blocks different sizes……

Should be fun when it comes time to put the quilt together!!

 

Finally, I have a good friend who is having a BIG birthday and I decided that I want to make her a lap quilt…..by next Saturday!!   So far, so good……

The raffle quilt looks so good and I love seeing all the appliqué blocks together. I do like the colours you are using for the lap quilt too.

Great work finishing the raffle quilt top.
And lovely to see all the applique blocks, too.
Good luck with the deadline for your friend's quilt.
You have a lot on your plate.
