well haven't posted in awhile. been a very busy couple of months. I went on a quilting cruise April 1-8 to the Caribbean. It was great had great teachers Carol Doak her last cruise, Danella Stout, and Debby Maddy. Project were great will post pictures when get them finished. I am truly working on them My friend and I made a challenge to each other to get them finish by end of Aug.
Then four of us went to Paducah quilt show for the week. had a great time. new ideas and patterns and of course some fabric but not too much.. Watched a demo from George Sicilano piecing his micro mini quilts so amazing.. I have one to do maybe next years list too many on the list for this year.
I have been quilting customer quilts this month. Tying to catch up from being gone.
My quilting group is doing a UFO challenge this year we each put 12 UFOs on a list and my grandon is picking a number each month for us to work on. Well he picked a good one for most of us this year especially for me since last couple of month I haven't been able to work on them. Our number this month is 8 and mine is done... I started it from 2 mini charm packs and some background made the blocks and then set it aside. so now I have put blocks together and put border on it which was from a friend that I quilt for she brought me her left over fabric from a Xmas quilt and guess what is was from the same line of fabric from the charms perfect and enough from another piece for a pieced back and I even quilted it yesterday after dinner and brought back to front for the binding ...
here is a picture.
now I am off to quilt a row from 2016 row by row that I made into a wall hanging going to stitch the ditch on sewing machine and invisible thread...
