Light Bags

DH has some hunting lights he needed protection for
this holds 2 lights and a power cord. 
I think it would have been better if I'd made it a bit deeper and wider for the power cord to be in there.

It fits.

I hate velcro, but I couldn't find the piece I wanted.

Pixie Garden

Another UFO is Pixie Garden

After these two butterflies, I have two more blocks to complete
One I'm having trouble with the tiny circles.
The last one is the Pixie.
I started her tonight.
After that is making the blocks with the applique pieces.

Design Wall Monday & UFO finish

 Started this commission quilt.
She had charms at her wedding and had everyone pray over them.
This is the pattern she wanted made from those charms.
This might be 1/4 of the charms so far.
I'll need to transfer it to my larger design wall when Quilty Fun is off it.
Quilty Fun really should have another block for the center, but I don't like it so much, so I am tryng for a different layout.
I need to add some coping strips and see if I can get this together.
finished another UFO.
These are the dark blue blocks that I put together.
It's small but turned out OK.
Check out other design walls over with Judy.

Patriotic UFO

I think I'm leaving it at 60 x 60.
Using the one (Race Track) patriotic mix of strips is a little odd, but....it added color.
I am going to have to make a pillow with what's leftover to finish it off.

I had a large finish this week, but the person I was making it for supplied all the fabric.
I only used a yard of my own fabric. :(
But, a finish is a finish.
I'm within one side of binding and will have another UFO done.
I didn't sit and watch TV at all last night, so I didn't finish it.
We were making sugar cookies
The UFO will be done tonight because I have 3.5 hours of waiting.
I'll also be trimming HST.

Girl Scout Canvas

It is quilted and I did quilt over the top of the canvas. 
Not sure I love it, but it is made by girls and that is the important thing.
Now to get the binding cut and applied.
I won't be able to take this with me to bind, so I'll just have to be careful with it and bind it at home.
