WIP Wednesday

I'm still being really productive here.  This is what happened this week:

I got my Pat Sloan Vacation Time 2015 Mystery Quilt top finished!  Now I'm working on a funky pieced back.



I quilted my Scrap Dance QA table runner.  Hoping for a Friday Finish.  I quilted it with Circle Lord Loopys.



I finished this quilt little mystery quilt.  It was a mystery with Lori at Humble Quilts.  I ordered a special longarm template to use to quilt it from R&S.  I buy some of their boards from time to time.



I finished longarm quilting this dinosaur quilt for a customer.  It turned out great!  I used my Circle Lord Jesters template for the quilting.



I finished longarm quilting this pink elephant quilt for a customer.  I quilted it with Circle Lord Cosmos.





My little helper is helping me lay out blocks for my Grand Illusion quilt (2014 Mystery quilt by Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville).  Each year I hope to have the previous year's quilt done before the new one starts.  It starts the day after Thanksgiving.  I was a little worried about the finish of this top because I lost the border instructions.  I decided to just do a standard border... BUT while working on a pieced back for my Pat Sloan 2015 Mystery quilt I was looking for orphan blocks for the back of it.  Low and behold I FOUND all the border pieces!!!  I did the sub units but did not sew them together.  They are now all together.  I just need to put them on the top!  Woot woot!

My friend, Julianne, has been cheering me on to finish this.  She is patiently waiting to have hers longarmed.  I was just going to longarm hers and ship it to her in California, but she wants a picture of both of our quilts together.  Oh the pressure!!!  ((((HUGS, Girlfriend!))))  I know she's doing this for my own good so that I don't just have another WIP sitting in the box...



I'm so excited that I knocked out FIVE of the projects I just put on my sidebar.  Wow, I didn't think that would motivate me, but it did.
