Cloud Nine for Abigail

Good friends of mine are having a baby girl in April and are going to name her Abigail Kristine. I made a pink, brown and white quilt using a pattern called Cloud Nine for Abigail.

 I decided to applique her name on the bottom row.

Design Table -February 25,2013

I ordered my design wall this weekend but for today I have a Design Table.

Started a pattern called Weave It To Me this weekend. I have had the pieces cut out for months but just got brave enough to start it. Found out that it is not as hard as I thought!!!

I finished assembling the baby girl quilt I have been working on. Unfortunately when I appliqu├ęd the baby's name on the quilt I spelled it wrong!!! So I spent two hours on Saturday pulling part of the quilt apart and inserting the correct letter.

Tonight I am sewing down the binding. Can't show the front of the quilt yet as it is a gift.

No sewing today :(

I needed to catch up with work around the house , plan for a bridal shower in a few weeks and prepare materials for our small group bible study. So no sewing today

Hope to get back to my machine tomorrow night.

Striking Scrappy Finish

Our son-in-law asked for one of my quilts over a year ago and I finally gave him the quilt last Wednesday night.

Striking Scrappy is a scraps pattern but to keep it a masculine quilt I used only bright colors and black/white fabrics.

The patten book showed wonderul quilting with varigated thread in the black areas between the blocks.  So I wanted this quilt done the same way.  I took the quilt to Pieceful Gatherings in Fox River Grove, IL and they did a great job!!

OK, so I did almost nothing else but sew today.  My wonderful husband let me indulge in a sewing day and I made the most of it!

I already posted two other finishes today and just now finished Section 2 of the Comfort and Joy Quilt Along project.

So now it's time to get to bed and dream about all of the other quilt projects I still want to do!!!

Design Floor (Wall) - February 4, 2013

I don't currently have a Design Wall so I use my Sewing Room floor to layout quilts. 

This week I have a Baby Girl Quilt on the floor - hope to have it sewn together by the end of the week.
