In Progress

I have been doing small things but I see that I'm making some progress on them all.  I'm delighted to be getting some of these to a finishing point.
Here is another attempt at a finish.  This is an oldie from a event night at the quilt shop.  I didn't pick out this material and needed a table runner to trade at Happy Scrappers Christmas party.  It will soon be a finish.  Also, working on Slow stitching Sunday, although I seldom get the picture up at the site.

A group of friends and I went on a shopping excursion and went by a yarn shop to find these.  It's a top this by Lion brand and I modified the pattern some to make it smaller for our new granddaughter that is arriving in November. I can't wait to see this on her.

This block is called Scrappy Trip by Bonnie Hunter.  I tried the pattern out and used 2.5 in. squares.  I learned  the values are too close and need more contrast, especially between he middle rows.  Since I have quite a stash of 2.5 strips, many more to come.

Happy Scrappers challenge to finish one of our projects to competition  This was a 25 block with red through the center.  I chose the Barn raising center.  Remaining things to do is make back and binding and stitching.I think it's neat how the red outlines the blocks in this setting.

Another Quilt for Leigh and Edward

It seems this quilt I made for Edward and gave him last summer is too short to sleep under.  So, when he came this summer I decided to finish up the  Disappearing nine patch for him to take home.  And it weems Leigh loved the color combination so much.  So, I sent her the Jelly roll race 3.0

I really love that my kids want quilts by me and take them home and use them. That is what quilting is all about.
