Christmas Though the Year

I started these table runners in plenty of time for Christmas but.....I put them aside half done thinking there's still time.  It's taken a few months but they're finally finished.  The runners were all cut out and fused so I just needed to do the stitching.

I also added a few more mice ornaments to my Christmas box.

Stop by and see what other's are making for Christmas .  Visit Christmas Through the Year hosted by Kim at Lily Patch Quilts      

Happy Easter!

Hexies, Mini Quilt Swap and FnwF

It's been so long since I posted...

I received this beautiful St. Patrick's Day Mini Quilt from Carin.  Thank you!

I just love her stitching!  The detail on the shamrock stems are gorgeous and I love the button in the center.  Stop by and visit Carin's Blog.

Here's the mini I sent

Cheryll at Gone Stitchin' hosted this mini swap...maybe you'd like to join in the next mini quilt swap.  Sign up now for the Mother' Day Mini.

My daughter Katie made this table topper for me.  It's so beautiful!  It's hard to believe she started quilting just a few months ago.  Visit Katie's blogs Project Katie and Call Me Crazy and see what she's been up to.  

On the first Friday of the month I join in the fun at Friday night with Friends hosted by Cheryll at    Gone Stichin'.  She did a drawing last month and look what I won!

Thank you Cheryll.  I love the thread catcher, the fabric is so cute!(so was the Santa stamp)  The tea is wonderful and  I'm saving a cup for our next FnwF  - see you then...

AND here are my hexies

it's been awhile since I joined Karen's One Flower Wednesday. Stop by and see what's blooming in the other gardens.

***I'm in way too many BOM's and it's hard to keep up...I'll post them next time***

Happy Stitching!

Friday Night with Friends

My Friday night with Friends was spent with 30's scraps.  My Quilt Shop's Scrap Club is doing the quilt Susan's Folly designed by Susan Claire.  I chose to use my 30's scraps and there are LOTS of 1 1/2" strips and as you probably see in the picture they're all over the sewing table.

There are 49 blocks along with 64 alternate blocks (the ones above without the green sashing) and along with other sashing and borders will be about 88" square.  We're suppose to be done with the top by October 2013. 

 My Mini for 12 inch Mini Club is complete and ready to send.

....And I put the binding on a quilt from 1985 this past week.....I had my DH in the basement looking for my fabrics left over from this quilt.  I told him it was in the container 3 stacks back on the bottom.  The stacks were from floor to ceiling and and each time he lifted one down he said: "Is this it?"  After about 12 times he decided it must be the one on the bottom and continued with the search.  

I learned to hand piece and a month later I started this BOM.  I think it was from a book called the Legacy quilt.  My mom had started to quilt it but then passed away in 1987.  Last year I brought it to Dan and he did am amazing job!  Each square has a different quilting design and I love the quilting in the borders and sashing...Thanks Dan!
