And with this quilt

I am finished with customer quilting for 2011.



There was some fullness in the quilt center so I popped a piece of batting in the middle of the quilt and it sucked the fullness right in.


Quilted with Cascade.



Now it's onto some special quilts. Rhonda and I came up with the idea of making each of our three pastors quilts for Christmas this year. Then December came and we realized we hadn't started lol. So we made three Christmas lap quilts. I've quilted the first two and Rhonda is doing the third.



Than it's a push on binding to get these finished for Friday. And fingers crossed I can start some of my Christmas presents tomorrow.

Applique

Wanda brought in this lovely quilt.



This is one of my favorite snowman kits from Hamels. This is one of my favorite blocks.


I ended up doing a freehand meander as Wanda didn't want any quilting on the appliques.

Shelia has done a quilt for each of her sister/brothers for Christmas. This one is stunning.



Look at all the details



quilted with Flowing Feathers.

Now it's time to get back to work and finish some more!

Still stitching

I finally got my November Birdie Block done. I saw some modified block on Flikr and I changed mine as well. Since we celebrate Thanksgiving in October in Canada, I wanted a Remembrance Day theme for the November block.



I also finished a few more of my Christmas blocks. I think I might turn these into a tablerunner.




Now I just might try some quilting today.

Sniffles and sneezes

My cold came back last week and by Saturday, I was really sick. A not so quick trip to the Drs and I have strep and a sinus infection.

Before I got sick, I got this cute quilt quilted for Jackie. And perfect timing too since she requested the binding to be attached after quilting so I had something to keep me busy while laying on the couch lol.


Each of the snowmen in Jackie's quilt are named


Representing members of her family. Such a great idea.

As for me, I got some more embroidery finished. These are soon going to be some Christmas pillows.
