WIP Wednesday 4.10.13

Spring Break is over.  I am back to longarm mode.  This week I quilted two and a half quilts!!! I quilted Buckeye Beauty and The Elanor Burns inspired baby quilts.  I also loaded and quilted half of the Chasing Chevrons quilt!  Come back in the next two-three weeks and the big finishes!  I need to select and cut some binding from my stash.  (I'm still on a fabric diet in which I'm trying to not buy things new and just keep using what I have.)

Here's the Chasing Chevron's quilt.  I'm doing a small, all over stipple on it.

Here's Buckeye Beauty in which I experimented using a circle template:
I finished the April BOM for the Quilt Doodle sampler (bottom right) called Ballgame.
I finsihed another ribbon star (pattern from Lee's blog at Freshly Pieced) for my LQG.

My Block Swap Adventure partner, Samantha, received this block from me:

For finishing this quilt top and linking up wit Richard and Tanya Quilts blog  I won $15 from the Fat Quarter Shop.  I can't wait to be confident in Baptist Fan quilting on the longarm to quilt it.
