WIP Wednesday 11.13.13

Here's what happened this super busy week:

I dropped my good Nikon camera.  :(  Now I'm using my back-up Fujifilm camera that I bought with a Groupon...  I completed this little Big Bird panel quilt.

I'm pretty sure I decided upon my colors for my Celtic Solstice (Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt) (photo below from the Quiltville site.)
Maroon (in place of Bonnie's yellow)
Grey (in place of Bonnie's orange)
Brown (in place of Bonnie's green)
Pink (in place of Bonnie's blue)
I need pinks and greys.  I have tons tons tons of browns and enough maroons.  I am a little nervous changing colors like this.  When I changed colors for Orca Bay it didn't go so well and the blocks are still in a bag.  I'm not 100 percent thrilled with the Easy Street colors from last year.  I LOVE some of the Easy Streets out there in blog land.  These colors are also scraps pulled for a Fons & Porter quilt that I just love and have been wanting to do for a while.  I have the pattern book above my desk, but I just can't put my finger on which one.  I'll look for that some day when I'm bored.  That quilt won't be made until about February of 2014.

I started my Snowman Mini Quilt -- Thank goodness I found my Debbie Mumm book!  I cut these pieces in July while on a camping trip.

I was a little nervous when this is what my strip set looked like to be cut in 1.5" sections.
I started sewing this on Monday afternoon... Now it's the completed quilt top!  This pattern is a Debbie Mumm pattern in Quick Country Quilting.  I think I need to cut out a blue one tomorrow.  I LOVE how the little 1" checkerboard border came out -- it really makes the quilt.
I longarmed this blue quilt for a customer

Looking through my WIPs in the boxes upstairs I found this charity quilt that someone in our local quilt guild made.  I made a back and loaded it on the frame to finish between customer quilts.

I finished the November Quilt Doodle Designs BOM block.
 And here's the whole quilt so far.  One block to go! 

I selected fabrics for the Downton Abbey Mystery QA.

I entered this charity quilt in the contest for close-up quilting at Quilting Gallery.  The last time I checked I only had four votes :(
