Robin your quilt is so beautiful.  I don't know if I would have the patience to quilt it twice!  You did a wonderful job the second time around!

Barbara - we are hoping and praying that you WIN - you deserve it my friend.

I did work on my Sew Spooky quilt tonight - ah but the stupid arthritis is putting a cramp in everything I do today... argh!!!

I did get through all my PMs and answered everyone on the SS too - amazing - fingers are so mad at me...lol... I got 2 more people today!!!  yippeee!!!

So much fun... now to print out my list of participants - add 2 more #s to my bowls - check to see who I am missing - I don't think anyone is missing but a couple - and we are off and running... 

I get so excited...lol

My fingers and toes are crossed for you on Saturday - maybe that is why they are mad at me...teehee

Your quilt is adorable though and amazing to me that you are a relatively new quilter...You are jumping into this with both feet and flying away!

Barbara, the red border you picked really sets everything.  It is perfect. I will keep my fingers crossed and hope you will win.  Anyway, you have my vote!  Love the bees!

 

And yes I did quilt this weekend and today. I just finished putting the borders on the quilt I'm making for Chicago's charity. I hope she likes it!  It feels so gooood together back in the sewing mode.  I loved my summer, but I missed my sewing.  Somehow, I need to get more hours I. A day or learn to function on way less sleep! Right now I don't think the students would be too impressed if I came to school half asleep.

rshatto:

Here is one I did about 3 years ago. I quilted it on my machine, in sections. It is my favorite.

I love the combinations of browns and creams in your quilt, Robin.  Beautiful!

Carol:

Barbara, the red sets it off perfectly~ Remember what that lady said (Freddie?) RED is a neutral!  Great looking quilt!

I heartily agree...the red sets it off and I, too, think that red can be a neutral.  I plan on using a lot more of it in my quilts.

I had very good intentions to sew all day long and had a really good start at it before DH got out of bed and decided today was a good day to steam clean the carpets.  My carpet is shot and steam cleaning doesn't do it a bit of good, but DH hasn't decided it we should recarpet or put in manufactured flooring like Pergo.  I would like to carpet the bedrooms (I think) and put the manufactured flooring in all other rooms.  I would tile the bathrooms but this is a manufactured (mobile) home and they tell me that tile won't work here because of the weight and the shifting problem.  They say we have to use a "floating" floor, so I guess tile is out of the question.

Anyway, the steam cleaner broke down about half way through the job, so I was able to get the baby quilt done except for the borders.  I now have 3 baby quilts read to load on the machine and quilt, when I get around to that no one knows.

This pattern is called "Autumn Braid".  But I changed all the colors and went with butterfly s,  so I call it "Spring Braid".  I love how it turned out.  Of course I am wondering if I should had another border,  maybe a narrow one of the purple around the braids,  what do yall thinK???

 

I started on the Craftsy BOM for september.  It is curved pieces and I have never done them before, but it is going pretty smoothly.  Hope to have the 2 blocks finished tomorrow after work  Will post pics then.  But now it is off to bed, have to be up at 4 am to go to work.  I am a cook.

Pretty quilt.  I have some of the butterfly fabrics.  I used them in a quilt for a little girl at church.

Donna--I love the quilt!  It's very pretty.  I want to try a braid at some point.  Maybe when I get done with my assignments, although that day may never come...lol!

 

I'm not working on quilts too much.  I did start on the border for Charmaine's quilt for the RR.  I can't say any more than it's a LOT of little pieces!  But I'm learning how to do a couple new blocks, so it's been fun as well.

I did finish my first machine applique quilt that I started at the Amish retreat.  I decided to call it Traffic Jam since I got it mixed up and only one strip is going the other direction.  I passed it along to my sister for her new baby, and they loved it.  Daddy went to take a nap with the baby, and took the quilt with him to cover him up.  It's really fun to see the reactions of people you make quilts for.  Even after I told them that it was my first attempt, and not all the stitches were the best, they still loved it!  Anyway...here it is:

Pretty braid quilt Donna. Love the butterflys, I have someof them in FQs I don't know why I'm saving them. I can't use them for a quilt for the DGKs, the older one had a bad dream about butterflys and now she's afraid of them.

Susie, that's a real cute quilt. No wonder they loved it. I love the traffic lights on the border.
