Lots of Quilting This Week

I had time to get a lot done this week. Unfortunately, it's all stuff you've already seen so it isn't too exciting.  I finished the 9th and next-to-last block for Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Design's free online BOM, "Henreitta Whiskers", almost finished quilting the quilt I made at last week's Linda Ballard class,






plus a whole lot of unglamorous, boring, mending and altering ("this tag itches me" my husband says of the Hawaiian shirt I bought him, and the beautiful, white gaberdine slacks I bought at the shi-shi consignment clothing store I sometimes go to needed shortening (lining and all) and I needed to finally make a proper derndl skirt for an upcoming Oktoberfest!

Oh, and I finished quilting and just need to hand-sew the binding to the "'Lil Twister", Layer Cake quilt I started in April. A UFO just about completed!! YAY!

 Hope your week was as fulfilling ! Please check out Judy Laquidara's blog to see a LOT more inspiring Design Walls

It really does feel good to finish up projects. I am planning on taking a break from my current projects (at least I am going to try) and get some of my quilt tops pinned or send them out to be quilted. They are starting to pile up!! I am determined to get at least three ready to go by next weekend.

I love the border treatment on Lil Twister. Sure wish I could claim to be as productive as you have!

I always enjoy checking in with your blog to see what you have been up to. I'm beginning to have a few 'unfinished' projects as well and looking over your recent accomplishments I'm sure this feels great!

I really love that basket quilt in your last post. And what a great border on your Lil' Twister quilt. I really enjoy seeing what your sewing group does. You girls get a lot done, and it looks like you are having so much fun. Wish I lived closer.......
