WIP Wednesday 2.17.21

This week I finished the quilting on  my Fortune Teller quilt.  It is trimmed and the binding is made.  I'm hoping for a finish by the end of this week.  This is a pattern by Amanda Jean Newburg.

I also finished this little charity crib quilt.

I started a new project.  It's a quilt called Gobble, Gobble, by Lori Holt.  I made all of the drumsticks.

I played with yellow scraps and made a few rail fence blocks.  24/900 blocks complete.

On my longarm frame is this vertical striped quilt that I am quilting for a friend.

We didn't have school on Monday due to President's Day.  We didn't have school on Tuesday due to the district vaccination of staff day.  I just kept on quilting on the Vertical quilt.  The quilting is finished!

I love the texture of the Dominos pattern from Urban Elementz!  I think it gives this quilt a little jazz.

When I dropped off the above quilt, my friend had another quilt for me to longarm:

At a quick glance it looks like the back is big enough, but I'll have to make frankenbatting.  One comes off the list, one goes back on...

This brings me down to 59 projects on my WIP list.  This is getting exciting for me.

My husband has been heating the room where the longarm is. It's mostly on the weekends. Then we can all hang out together there. I'm happy to be making forward motion on other older projects. It's a good feeling.

Seeing all those drumsticks made me laugh - too cute!

Wow, you have been sew busy! I like your scrappy Fortune Teller quilt and those chicken legs made me smile.

The Vertical quilt turned out wonderful! Your friend sure is busy sewing since it seems you get a quilt quilted for her and she has another ready to hand over to you! I really like the one she gave to you to quilt next. Another very homey looking piece which I love!

the fortune teller quilts looks great and the Goble Goble look so cute. Can't wait to see the finish quilt. I wish I had long arm quilter nearby, I had a few tops ready but sending it to another state for quilting is too much of $ :). I love the way you quilt the stripe quilt.
