What I’m Working On…

Last week I put two quilts on the frame and quilted them….

Quilts-2

This is Criss Cross Applesauce and Hip to be Square.  I had intended on binding them yesterday but the machine quilting bug struck and I went with it and quilted three more quilts.

Quilts-1
All three of these quilt tops were sent to me by a blog reader to be quilted and used as charity quilts.  I finally am getting to quilting them.  I am SO happy to have them quilted…now I have FIVE quilts that need to be bound.

I have a busy teaching schedule this week so I am not sure if I’ll get to very many of them….it’s been SO-SO long since I have touched a regular sewing machine.

Typically at this time of year we are mowing lawns, putting in crops and gardens so little sewing time is available-NOT this year.  It has been cold and rainy.  It might be until May until we get a chance to do that.  As sad as that is, at least I’ll be able to get some more sewing time in before I am working outside.

    Beautiful quilts – we’re painting the house here so that leaves little time in between watching the grand kids and touch-ups to quilt! I sure miss my quilting time too!

    Hi Jo, Sure wish I lived closer to you – I love binding so could help you out with that step. Would love to see a close up of your quilting on Criss – Cross quilt. Have we seen a finished pic of full quilt – sure love it!?
