Another busy week has passed, and I feel I accomplished quite a bit. This week I finished the quilting and binding on the Frolic Quilt, which which is a gift for granddaughter Kyleigh's college roommate. She is going back to Boston in a couple of weeks and will give it to her roommate then.
Grandson Jaeger came over to pick up his going back to college cookies and I took advantage of having a tall young man over here to hold it up. He headed back to college in New Mexico this week, with his dad, and a stop at Disneyland along the way.
I also finished quilting on this one. This is a guild quilt I started quilting on 5th Wednesday in November. I didn't have time to finish it then, but finished it this week. I didn't make it, and I didn't bind it. There are people in my guild that just like to put the binding on.
This is also a guild quilt I hope to get quilted by next Wednesday, so I can put in the binding pile too. The reason why this wasn't put out on the general machine quilting pile was of those huge plain blocks. So I offered to do it myself. I have it loaded up and ready to go, threaded and plenty of bobbins wound. I am just going to meander all over.
At pin basting this week with the guild, I pin basted one of my personal quilts. I am planning to quilt this on my domestic machine so I can do more detailed work. This is another one I would like to get done to be entered in the quilt show this year.
I have been working on a lot of secret things too. I have been embroidering with my while I am working on my Shades of Blue Blog Hop project. I was piecing a bunch of strips together today, and then looked at the back side and saw this.
You are always so busy, Karrin. I love being inspired by all that you accomplish. What a darling red , white and blue quilt- it tugs at my heart. Have a very lovely day working on your sunflower quilt.ReplyDelete
You've been very busy! You are very kind to gift the frolic quilt to your g'daughter's roommate, she must be a very nice person. Hospital Sketches is beautiful! Are you going to hand quilt her when you're finished with sunflowers? Happy stitching!ReplyDelete
don't you just hate it when you realize after a lot of sewing that your bobbin wasn't right!ReplyDelete
That quilt is so pretty. You are so generous to share it with your granddaughter's room mate!ReplyDelete
Busy Lady and love your quilts - it is such a good feeling to get our older projects completed! HugsReplyDelete
I love the Father Christmas quilt - that will make a beautiful finish! Fun to see the other projects you're working on, too. I'd be one of those guild people who would offer to do the binding on charity quilts - one of my favorite parts of quilting! Enjoy your stitching today, Karrin!ReplyDelete
What a lucky roommate to be receiving such a beautiful quilt! I love your Father Christmas quilt,too.ReplyDelete
Why, I don't believe there is another place where one visits and sees such quilty loveliness, Karrin♡ All are amazing! Frolic is dancing a lively dance; so beautiful. Have a beautiful week, busy, busy lady♡ReplyDelete
Super productive week and full of beautiful quilts, Karin. HugsReplyDelete
Frolic is so pretty, I'm sure the roommate will be delighted. Where in NM is Jaeger going to school? LOVE Father Christmas! Hospital Sketches is such an interesting name.ReplyDelete
Such beautiful inspiring piecesReplyDelete
You have been very busy and productive! Good thing Jaeger is so tall! He is an excellent quilt holder. Nice to move a few UFO’s to the finish line. Beautiful quilts! Gail at the Cozy QuilterReplyDelete
So many gorgeous projects. Getting those two beauties quilted is a nice goal to have! I am pretty good about quilting something once it is done, but I have 3 hand projects I haven't touched in years.ReplyDelete
What a cheerful quilt for Kyleigh’s roommate! And that patriotic quilt looks like a flag waving in the breeze! Your Santa quilt is so lovely!ReplyDelete
