Not sure why its sideways, but at a quilt retreat here in Texas, worked all day on my quilt. Will post finished project tomorrow ! 

Save  your photo as a .png instead, and it will never turn sideways during an upload.

Hi, Here is the picture of the Triple Irish Chain I told you about that I did for my sister. It is a UFO right now.

Great job on all of your projects shown here.  I must have a double Irish Chain sitting on a shelf to be quilted.  Need to check that out one of these days!

Love the table runner for your sister as well as the Rail Fence.  Your puppy certainly looks happy with his new pillow bed.  i wonder if he will share?

 

Actually Tank does share with his sis Lily, but kinda in game format. She has to distract him to get off of it and then she hops on. He is a Peekapoo (20 lbs It is a real bread which is a cross between a Pekingese and Poodle) and she is a Toy Shih Tzu (7 1/2 lbs). They both have AKC papers which it is fun to see their family trees, but they are just my kids in this house.

Your Irish chain is lovely!  Can't wait to see it quilted.

Thank you. I am not sure how I want to quilt it yet. Any suggestions would be great. I have a few ideas. But what ever it will be this will be a big project. LOL

Thank you so much on my projects and my babies are wonderful. Tank just turned 5 and Lily is 2. And they are like regular children. They do not act like pets. They are so like my real kids were at that age is silly.   Here they look so innocent don't they.....HA

I have a queen sized Triple Irish Chain still waiting to be quilted too.  I made it a couple of years ago in a class I took, but haven't been brave enough to try quilting it as at that time I didn't have a machine with a larger throat.  I don't think I can do it on my frame with my mid-arm because I don't have enough space to do the centers justice.  I guess it will just wait until I get the energy to sandwich it and try FMQ on the Viking Sapphire.

As for what I am doing today, still frogging.  I'm thinking about loading the Log Cabin on the frame and quilting it, but was wondering if I stay-stitched the edges of the piano key border it would help to keep it from stretching.  I sure don't want to have the same problems with the Log Cabin as I've had with the one I'm currently frogging.  What do you think?  Does anyone stay-stitch the borders of their quilts before quilting them?

Karla, would love to see a pic of your Triple Irish Chain. Even if you didn't quilt it yet like me.  I am sure it is very pretty. I haven't ever stay-stiched my edges but I would love others opinions, this might be something I would try if it is popular.

I love it. I hope you finish it.

My first quilt was a triple Irish Chain. My friend kept it but I never got a photo. I'll have to see if it's still around.

Today I didn't do anything but I did do a little sewing this past weekend.  I started a French braid quilt.  Looks pretty good.  Not finished with it.  Maybe I can get back into it in a day or two.

My only work on a quilt was picking out fabric at the Buggy Barn on the way home from Spokane.  Went for jury duty and did not get  selected, so had time to stop on the way home.

The Buggy Barn is finally expanding, adding on another 18 feet to the front.  The owners have been told it will take about a month, but they are just getting the ground ready!  They really need the space.  They have had to stack the sale fabric in the bathroom.   And they have at least one row of stacked fabric in front of all the other fabrics in the wall cases.

Karla, I have a longarm but, I always baste my borders before I quilt to keep them straight.
