Design Wall Monday

Just pulled hot of the sewing machine
my Painted Ladies soon to be quilt top:

(yep, it's sideways and doesn't want to turn...sorry)

So glad I got all the blocks sewn
-including the sashings-
and just the 2 outer borders are missing.
Very soon I should be able 
to see my living room floor again...

Design Wall Monday

I have been trying
to get the hang of applique
with FigTree's 
Sherbet and Creams quilt-along.
Still lots of pumpkin seeds to go,
but not too bad:
(poor light - sorry!)

Some more work was also done 
on my UFO Painted Ladies:
I am getting there- slowly.

Have a great week!

Design Wall Monday

Have a look -
I've finished my Hi! quilt top:
Yeah - photo taken on my deck
in the sun. 
What a fabulous weekend this was!

Then I pulled out a newer UFO 
"Painted Ladies" to work on:
7 more blocks to go,
and then sewing it all together.
I do love the FigTree fabrics and pattern 
and hope to get it done quickly!

What are you working on?

Design Wall Monday

Well, after eons of not posting

Hi! Quilt top

Here is what I am working on right now:
Hi! Quilt,
pattern in the Quilty Magazine Spring 2016:

I love the simplicity and the big blocks -
and it still looks fabulous!
In general hope to use up more stash
with the help of fast & cute quilt pattern
...

Swiss Quilt

It's been a while since I posted last,
but I do like to use the blog 
as a quilty diary.
So I better get my latest quilt top added,
finished last week.
Hopefully blogger and photo posting
isn't acting up again...
Meet Swiss Quilt (top),
pattern by Thimbleblossoms.

Just love it,
especially with the added fabric 
from my friend's stash:
That makes it extra special!

Well, it doesn't let me modify the photo - 
so this is it.
More 'older' photos 
are coming soon,

Celtic Solstice top - DONE!

After months of no sewing
I have been really productive on my UFO's:
I just finished adding 
the final border on Celtic Solstice!
Yeah, the 2nd top completed this week.
Both old Bonnie Hunter mysteries
that got stalled in the border stage,
my usual dilemma...

Wow, I really love this quilt top!
The colors, the design,
just everything!
Glad I got it moved 
to the 'to be quilted pile'
and can now concentrate on starting
Sure hope this time I will get over 
my border phobia... ha ha.

Linking up to Jo's pre-mystery link-up.
Well, technically I am a bit past-mystery,
but a finished top is always good, right?

Hope you are enjoying 
the long weekend
as much as I do,
Barb
