Catching up on some WIPs...


Today has been a great day for making some decent progress on some quilts in waiting ...

First up is the "autumn leaves" this is based on a pattern called October from Keepsake Quilting

Finished making the scrappy border out of all the bits...



...then finished cutting out the leaves, threw the leaves onto the quilt and then moved them around and sought Kait's artistic eye for placement, pinned then ironed the leaves down ready to machine stitch...





Holly cat has given her approval, so the top is now ready to make a backing and sandwich before I start machine stitching the leaves then the fun part of quilting...



Next in line was the Blue Star blocks that I won from Club yonks ago (April 2007) in the monthly BOM... I've joined these together and am about to search the free font sites for letters & numbers to enlarge to then 'stick' onto the quilt top ready for stitching (am going to turn this into a baby quilt for a friend who is expecting)...

Yay feel like am making some progress.. so tomorrow fingers crossed the rain will still be pouring, the housework can wait just a little longer, and I can keep working on these... Oh I have been working steadily away at night on the Butterfly Garden BOM that I've started - will post pics soon as nearly completed all the applique on Block 1 - phew applique is hard work - for me who is usually a fast and furious machine quilter...



Nite, hugs
