I did one more charity quilt on my LA and quilted one for my sister.  I have a second one for my sister to put on tonight.  I have used four different pantos so far.  I'm trying to go through all my pantos and do 1-2 quilts with each so I can see what I have.  I am also creating a long "muslin sandwich" to do one row of each panto so I have an example of each to show customers.

I worked on and finished a 54X54 quilt for my  dearest friend' church. She has helped me so much in helping me learn quilting ,so I wanted to something for her.

Her church is having a raffle to help the kids in the bible class,  so I donated this quilt for them. The quilt is 54" X 54 and is made of diagional stripes on a 10" square.. Some have red strips across  and when placed right, form a heart.  It's called a 'Heart vine" and I saw the quilt on the web some time ago.

I enjoyed making this one  and learned a lot doing it.

Will start another quilt or wall hanging soon. Quilting is a way of life for me and can't wait to start another.

Jeanine--

Sound like you've got that LA really humming along.  You do such beautiful work and now you'll do even more.  Don't forget to take a few breaks along the way, though.

Finish one of the tops to the two overdue baby quilts that I'm making and management to get some embroidery done on my Crazy Quilt project.  

What can we do to stop time so I can quilt and everything else will wait?

Boy Robin, that is the $64,000.00 Question. The saying that "Time Flys when you are having fun!" certainly proves true with quilting.

Got the news late last night that my DB and DS-I-L are going to be here the first week in June... oops he said the middle to end.... I haven't even started to quilt MQ4 which is their 50th Wedding Anniversary gift. I'm still waiting for my zipper system to get here. I ordered it on the 14th and as of Friday it still hadn't shipped. Maybe I'll just have to make my own leaders and get at it or it would be done when they get here!

Where did the time go?

I worked on "Starry Log Cabin" this morning and clear out a bunch of trash from the sewing room. Yesterday I put the backing together for MQ4 and starched and pressed both the top and backing. I think now it is time for a nap!

Have a great Sunday!

Wow where is everyone? I didn't work on anything yesterday but did get Tin Lizzie 10' set up and the new Quick Zipper system came and my D S-I-L was going to come over to help load MQ4. However; my D M-I-L fell and broke her wrist and ended up in the hospital. DH helped me that on to the frame and tomorrow it is his turn to spend the day at the hospital with his Step Mom.

 Today, I got out there and got it all loaded and actually got some stitching in. I always seem to end up doing my meandering regardless of all the great ideas I have about feathers, hearts and fancy quilting. There are lots of scrolls and swirls, so it will go with the Tootie Fruiti theme. Lizzie and I seem to be getting along just fine except she doesn't like bobbin winding very much!

I haven't quilted my MQ yet, either.  Like you, I have designs in mind, but I'll need to put some muslin on the frame to practice with before I try the actual quilt.  You're looking pretty comfortable with your machine.  Are you left handed?

Robin, that's Mystery Quilt 4.  Check the home page on the left side to see if the MQ4 workshop is still there.  It's a fun pattern.

My MQ4 is too big for my frame so I'll be taking it to the local machine dealer to rent some time on their longarm. Nice photo Miss MoomMist.

Thank you Robin... This is Mystery Quilt #4... If you go to "Groups" on your home page, it is listed there. Baubles and Beads is the name of the pattern.
