Getting Some Work Done!!

I have plowed ahead and got lots of sewing done in the last few weeks!  Woohoo!

First of all, I finished this purple/pink/grey star & thus was able to finish the purple/pink/grey (design by Blue Patchwork Quilts) Quilt top!
(I want to use the leftover pinks and purples in a scrappy quilt... using my scrap fabrics.)

Not a vibrant-coloured photo but at least you can see the quilt top done.
Approx 61" square

I also finished the top for Heather Spence's Spring 2013 Mystery Quilt, and this quilt is called "Connect the dots"

Fabric is "Pieces of Hope" by Riley Blake - "inspired" by autism.

The finished quilt top: 74" x 57.5"

Binding done on a scrappy quilt.  I used scraps for this quilt, just a crib size, but I like the designs.

33" x 41"

Quilts in progress:
  • 2 more quilts to bind
  • 3 quilt tops to quilt (need backing for 2 out of the 3, and batting for all 3)
My very BIG EXCITING NEWS is that I have COMPLETED my "SAND AND SEA GLASS" QUILT.  Yup, I just finished the binding last night... but it is raining and it is a huge quilt so I have to wait for a nice day before being able to take a photo of it... I just LOVE this quilt!!!!!!!  
You'll just have to wait for good weather before I can post a pic!!


  1. Wow, you have been busy. I can't wait to see a picture of Sand and Sea Glass. I have not finished mine yet.

  2. Your purple star quilt is fabulous.

  3. Congratulations on all your finishes! They are wonderful!
