My goal this week is to have the log cabin quilt off my frame before Wednesday, so I can list it on the WIP as completed!!! Then all I have to do is bind it, but the major work will be done.

I've got 3 more blocks to hand piece to be able to work on a little wall quilt that I can do some inklique on. I think I'm going to put feathered wreaths in it on white so I can ink them. We'll see how that goes and hopefully I'll be posting pics along the way! The fabric I'm using for the inklingo hand-pieced blocks is from my hand dyed stash. Yippee!

Todays goal is to get the white areas quilted (on the log cabin) and try to figure out if my 1.5 inch border is still bothering me and needs more quilting. I'm not sure I want to leave this type of a border unquilted, even though it is stitched in the ditch....

Onward to another quilty type day!

WIP Wednesday (work in progress)

Log Cabin being quilted on the long-arm
Super Nova - sad this isn't done but now I'll get to post it on the new little feather weight!!! There is a reason for everything!!!
Pics to come!

A Quiltin' I will go

A Quiltin' I will go, A quiltin' I will go, Hi-Ho the Dairy-O, A quiltin' I will go!!!

Well it's been a while since I've been out here....planting season lasted a wee bit longer then I really expected. Got the pleasure of working one field 3 times before the rain/dry cycle let Brad get it planted. Boy was I getting tired of seeing that piece of ground! Hopefully Fall won't come too fast!

I'm sad to say, but the same quilt is on my long arm frame as when we started planting. Dang.... I'm hoping that today will be the day that I can possibly get it all finished. I've been able to work a little here and a little there. I think our schedules are slowing down now that softball is done. Now we just have swimming lessons and daily school work to keep up on things. So I should have more time...

More time for QUILTING : )

I was able to finally adorn my new little jeep with it's own personalized plates....Can you imagine what they say???? LV2KWLT and they are Simpson College plates to boot! I just love them and they match a dear friend in Nebraska's plates! Love ya Rosie!!!

Well along with long-arming I really need to get some time to play with the oldest/newest toy to my little collection!!! I bought a spring green refurbished featherweight! She is the most adorable thing, but I haven't gotten to sew a stitch with her. Although I know that she and I will sew happily together for many years to come! Dang she is cute! I'll have to post a pic or you'll have to catch a glimpse at her at the next class or something!

Better go be stitchin'
Have a fantastic day! Rainy and good for sewing!
