Rotate!



Rotate!
Backing up a bit....
I finally finished these little Paula Prass snowballs Shelly and I have been working on...
I just love all the different colors in here... I need to get the borders figured out today, get it together, Then I will send it back to Shelly and she will quilt it... She's been great about getting her blocks done! I've been jumping all over the place...



I'm trying to get some more of these nearly finished quilt tops done... I did get the borders on the On POINT quilt. I thought at first i wanted something fancier for borders... I do love big simple borders... But after I found the perfect fabric, I thought it did plenty for it... So, it is what it is... Backing is cut, so, that's one more off my list...


I can now add it to the 13 others I have sitting here ready to be quilted...
sigh... I can't keep up on the quilting... I am still plugging along on the Tile quilt... all that micro stippling gives you a stiff neck! I hope to have the quilt finished this week...

But then again, I've started another project... This one for Tonya's Liberated Amish quilt challenge...

And this quilt is overlapping my grandmother's house quilt.... time to get them off the wall!

I am dwiddling down that stack of UFO's! yippeee!



String runner complete!


Oh!
And a pinch and a punch for the First of the month and no returns!

Happy sewing!

  6. Man, you are busy!

    Love the fabric you picked for the on-point quilt.

    When it comes to the Paula Prass one, those two brown snowballs are really popping out to me. If it were my quilt I would make sure to have more of that fabric or similar in the border. If it were my quilt.

  7. Boy do I feel like a slacker...I haven't even picked out which quilt to use as inspiration and you already have blocks up on your design wall! Time to get serious....

  8. That border is perfect for your On Point quilt! I think it's better to have more inspiration than time, rather than lots of time and no inspiration... at least that's how I explain my ever growing pile of quilts that need quilting!

  12. Wow, I love it all! The snowball quilt really showcases those fabrics. And the border is just right for the on point quilt. I really like that quilt. Don't let it sneak into that stack of unquilted tops, you should quilt it first. I wonder if I have time to get a Valentine runner done for my front hall? Hmmm?

  13. Did you say you have 13 quilts to quilt now? I wouldn't be able to keep up with that pressure! I adore that snowball quilt - great fabrics for that block. Your on point quilt is looking like a gorgeous summer garden. And your table runner is so wonderfully cheerful!

  18. Everything is fabulous as usual. Love the Amish Lib. I have just decided on what I am going to do. It will be based on Chinese Coins with a twist. Crazy Bonnie info: The Amish used so much black, because all their outer clothes were black (more relaxed in some places now) and the brilliant colors were often used for petticoats and less brilliant colors for girls dresses, THe pastelly colors were allowed in communities further west along with some block patterns. Sorry, can't resist bathering on.
