I just picked up a batting order from my APQS dealer. She stocks Legacy batting by Pellon and I love it. I used to use Quilter's Dream and I do love that, too. I like to use an 80/20 blend for most things. I also picked up three new pantos for my panto library. Now I just need to get to work.
I made an SBS block (at work) and prepared some appliqué pieces to take with me this weekend.
Finally finished!! My quilt celebrating Red Hatters

Beth that is a beatiful quilt.
I have not worked on a quilt for awhile, but while in Montana, I spent $200.00 on fabric in my favorite quilt store in Billings, Backdoor Quilt Shoppe. I now need to start working on the quilt for DH"s sister as that is a Christmas gift. I also bought some Christmas favric and a Tinkerbell/Peter Pan kit along with other fabric.
Very nice quilt, Beth! Great job on the quilting and I love the beads in the center.
I love your Red Hatters quilt, Beth! Did you design it yourself? Very pretty!

I love your Red Hatters!
Finished my 45th FWS block today.
Started a yellow brick road lap quilt for a soon to be married couple to cuddle under.
My best friend and her husband celebrated their 50th wedding anniv. this month and I am making a rag quilt with hopefully crazy quilt borders. I have changed my mind so many times as to what I am doing they will be lucky to have it by Thanksgiving. It finally cooled off a little here in Michigan so I got some squares done on it today. I am doing The Block Party pattern for the squares and doing decorative stitching at the seams. I have nine blocks sewn together and did five blocks decorative stitched to add to the nine previously put together.
Beautiful quilt. Love the colors.
Great quilt Beth. Love the colors and design
Today I need to get started on some quilt tops. I need some things to practice on so will probably do some tablerunners and bedrunners to use up some scraps. They are piled up again. Everyone have a great quilty day today
Sounds like a fun quilt, Judy. They will love it I'm sure.
I need some design help or ideas.
My best friend has a step daughter that she poured a lot of time into when she was in high school a few years ago. She had worked with her on coming up with a list of encouraging words and then they painted her room in purples and blues and painted these words all over the walls. After graduation, she was a little lost for a time...ran off with a loser, got pregnant, learned hard life lessons. But now, she is really trying to turn herself around and my friend wants to encourage her.
So, here's the help I need. She kept all the words and we bought some purple and blue fabrics. She wants me to make a quilt with the words on it. I have had this for over a year and it is just not coming together for me. Does anyone have ideas on patterns that might work? I was planning on printing the words on fabric with my computer. I would really like to get this done for her by Christmas so I need to get started on it.
