Blues -- A Quilt Top!!! RSC15



For scrap Saturday in BLUES this month I'm happy to report that I have a finished quilt top!!!  Remember these blues:



I turned them in to this king-sized quilt top!  I love it!  Thank you, Susan, for hosting the quilt along.  This is my first red/white/blue bed quilt.  I can't wait to quilt it.  This is the quilt I made in the Star Spangled QA at Susan's blog, Quilt Fabrication.  It just fit right in with the blues that I was working with for the month of June for the RSC15 (Rainbow Scrap Challenge, 2015).

Spangled Stars QA King Top Complete!

Woot woot!  This morning I finished my king-sized top for the Spangled Stars QA.  I LOVE it! 


Thank you, Susan, for hosting the quilt along.  This is my first red/white/blue bed quilt.  I can't wait to quilt it.  I'm linking up the completed quilt top at the linky party at Susan's blog, Quilt Fabrication.

The Baby

Here's the baby chick that hatched as a loner last week.  The first pic is at one day old.  The second pic is at nine days old.  It was born on our son's birthday.

The Chicks are Growing

Here's some of my other fun that I have.  I have seven chicks the same age.  These chicks are the offspring of a lavender Ameraucana rooster and Orpington and Red Sex Link hens.  The pic on the left is the chick at 2 days old.  The pic on the right is at four weeks old.

(Might as well multiply the above pic time two.  I have two chicks that are very similar.)

OSU Quilt on the Frame

This Ohio State quilt is for a customer that's not in a hurry to get it back.  It has been a WIP for 20 years.  She started making it when her nephews were 2 and 3 years old.  One of them is getting married next spring and she would like to give it to him. 

It's rained here in Ohio since Wednesday.  Everything is soggy.  But it's nice and dry by the longarm!  Our son was happy to play with his toys in that room that he hasn't seen for about a month.  Here's OSU Quilt #1 on the frame.  I'm quilting it with Circle Lord Jesters pattern.

 
I need to get this done so that I can get a couple of deadline quilts on the frame for the summer.  The border fabric is perfect... hopefully you'll get to see that better when I get a "done" photo.
