Working Progress

I quilted this for my friend.
She's is having a ball with scraps.
I've been giving her all my scraps and now i have my mother and sister joining in.

I put this one in the frame over the weekend.
I've been trying to decide on how I wanted to quilt it.
I was wanting to do some special design work but since it's so big I think I'll do an e2e

And I'm still trying to get my wood pieced painted for another cabinet.
This is a project that feels never ending. But with the weather cooling off a bit it has been nice getting outside.

Turtle Quilt

I finished quilting my turtle quilt.
It still need a binding - hopefully I'll get to that this weekend.
To start with it is alot bigger than I had originally planned.
I was wanting it to be a baby quilt.
It turned out 65" x 83" - a nice size twin.

I'm really happy with the results.
 I think this is one of my better quilts

UFO Almost Done

I've had so much work to do lately that I haven't posted much.
I decided I was going to get this stack-n-whack put together before I worked on anything else.
I had all the stars sewn onto the black background and it was a matter of how did I want them placed.
I tried it like this but it looked to busy...........
Then  rearranged it for this..........
It didn't do anything for me either
And I settled for this..... 
Now I need to add the last 2 borders and it is ready to go.
Hopefully I will get it quilted sooner than later.

I also started another design set.

Portable Backdrop Stand

I am so thrilled - my husband found a Portable Backdrop Stand on craigslist yesterday.
I have been telling him for a few years now that I wanted one.
Maybe now I will be able to take better pictures of my quilts.
I finished the ladybug quilt and gave it the honor of being the 1st on the stand.
