WIP Wednesday 10.30.19

Wow,  fall is flying by!  Every since the school year has started I have been busy, busy with LIFE.   I haven't posted a WIP Wednesday since 9/11.  Here's where I am right now...

I took in this customer quilt this week.  I hope to have it done by Thanksgiving weekend and back to the customer.  I'll call it the Blue & 4-patch Customer quilt.  It's a little larger than twin size.


I have one of her other quilts on my longarm frame right now.  Hopefully it will be done this week.


I have been working on the applique on this Kim Diehl pattern.  Wouldn't it look great on our table at Thanksgiving?


I finished this Block Lotto crib quilt.  I won these Scrappy Stars in December, 2018.



I finished all the hand work on this cute little crib quilt.  I need to do some patchwork blocks before it becomes a flimsy.

  1. You have made some progress on the quilting side, but I know you have been busy with working and your family. October has just flown by! I have been trying to get a lot of yard work done before the ground freezes. I think I am almost done and then I think of something else I could do around the yard! LOL!!

  2. Maybe you can finish the last of the applique on your Kim Diehl quilt before Thanksgiving (even if it's not quilted, it will still look great on your table!)

  3. You and I have similar lives right now - jumping from our projects to customer quilts. And having tons of fun doing it!
