It's been finished for a few days but here is the 30s Dresden Plates cushion. After a lot of "spirits" speaking to me this morning, including the quilting spirit I have started quilting the twin quilt in the  same pattern.

Barbara:

Thea ,it came out really nice .

thank you Barbara - it has been a work of love - I couldn't ask for a nicer friend then Rita and have loved making this quilt for her - now to get it quilted and to her!!!  I ordered that new flannel Batik to go on the back matching the colors in the quilt.  I didn't know till we went to the APQS show that they made Batik flannels - I am in love with them and the fact that they make them for backing is even better.  The backing should arrive on Monday - then to get it basted and quilted - and I am on to my next project...teehee... SnW is waiting for me to feel the creative juices flow again - I know they will they just got halted for a week or so... I am going to try to make some of those cube blocks and see what they do... and try another setting for all the colors in the quilt...

And I am working on Jay's b/d present - making him a beautiful Northern Woods quilt... 5 blocks done as far as making the block and pressing the raw edge appliques in place - I will start doing the satin stitch work soon... I don't want to wait till all 20 blocks are done because it is already a daunting task - but I am motivated...lol

Donna:

Today I worked on the "Tube Quilting" table runner I started.  I wanted to make placemats to match but I didnt have enough of the material.  (Note to self never never never buy less than 1 yard of fabric I love)  So, I made what I am calling a "Table Mat".  It is for a small table and serves the purpose of both a runner and mats.  What do yall think??? Success or Failure???  It is going to my daughter because she has a small dinning room table.

 

definitely success, i love it, donna.   does  everyone else chant in their head  S-U-CC-E-SS, when they are spelling out this word,  just like in high school when we were following cheers?

Finally got a chance to work on my "first" quilt again today. I started it over a year and a half ago and got so busy taking orders, then a move, then back to taking orders that I didn't get to work on it again for a year. A couple of other ladies that quilt decided we should meet every couple of weeks, so I decided I wasn't taking work with me! I got out my old quilt and started working on it. And I didn't realize how far my piecing had come in such a short time. I'm laughing at my oddly shaped squares and misaligned pieces now, but thinking I'm still going to finish it. It's my "first" quilt. The one that should go on my bed and eventually be passed on to my kids.
