I am so excited to be done and ahead of the game. I was not sure this one would ever be completed. LOL
But, the entire quilt is done and ready to be delivered.
Here is the front.
Here is the back
Here is the label on the back.
It is DONE!!! Did I say it is DONE?

Here is the last row of the Baptist Fans. Yea!!! The quilt is done!!!
The close up of the quilting
I then had him tell me what he wanted on the label. He wanted the AF emblem, which too 63 minutes to stitch out. Add to that the other words and it was a long time. Broke one needle and went on from there. It worked.
Now to do the binding.
Before I could do the binding, I had to put more glitz in DD's Halloween costume. So, the underdress got gold trim and the bag was made for collecting her candy.

I had finished making 2 Thanksgiving towels and
one teacher tote bag.
Today, I helped alter a halloween costume for the neighbor -- not sure why because they are not all the nice to DD. But, I did the neighborly thing.
I also finished working on the embroidered blanket. It was way thick. I tried to do the embroidery on it, but it looked bad. So, I did it on a piece of fabric and sewed it to the blanket. I think it turned out OK. Hope Natalie things so too.
I made the backing for the retirement quilt and started to load it.
I made a story book costume for DD. She is a fairy -- wings I bought, but the skirt is tulle and ribbon. Made a ribbon for her hair too. I'll post a photo tomorrow of her in her costume.

Needless to say, I didn't get much sewing done.
I just found out that I needed to have a birthday postcard done, so I made this one up this morning. I used different colored threads to randomly stitch the card, appliqued some pre-made appliques on it and colored in some of the columns. I like the variegated look on the edging. And, it is lime green.
I have quilted 2 quilts and have the binding ready to sew down on them. I am in the process of loading another quilt and will get to it sometime tomorrow (I hope).
I'm also sewing together the mystery quilt I did the other weekend. I have it 1/4 sewn together. A friend called and I talked on the phone instead of sewing, but because I'm so tired, it is probably better that way. LOL
Oh, I gave the 30's quilt to it's owner today. I think she liked it. She was talking about all the family names and the stories. It was a neat time for me.
I have my small group tomorrow, so that will be fun. I'll only get to stay for half the day because I need to get my parents at the airport.

I also put up Halloween decorations. It has been brought to my attention that I need to make some Halloween quilts. Bet they don't get done for this year, but should be done for next. LOL

It was to be purple and rust and was to be a clutch purse.
So, I have purple velveteen with rust decoration. It is my second swap purse.
I quilted with a varigated rust/tan thread
I finished quilting the BOM quilt for a friend. I need to figure out the binding and get it done and in the mail
DH finished my cabinets and half my fabric is back in place. I pray this works. He did move the shelves some and now I need to adjust where I put what fabrics. :(

I did get the binding done on the old 30's quilt. These are feedsacks, and very old.
It looks to be a family heirloom with the names embroidered on it. I think the Baptist fans did well on it.
I had hoped to pass it on, but the owner is in Arkansas until Wed. So, I will keep it until them.
I worked on a mystery by Marge today. I don't have a photo of it. It will become a baby quilt for one of the teachers.
I received 2 birthday blocks from my Birthday runaways group
I am in a glitzy purse swap, and played with this purple one today. It was not difficult, but I didn't like the way the fusible fleece made the purse feel. It is too wobbly (is that a word?). I am going to try it again with a stiffer interfacing and see if I like it better. Maybe I just need to make the flap with stiffer interfacing?
DH was working on my shelves to make sure they do not fall again. I think he is about half done. He ran out of hardware and had to go get some more. Then we both ran out of steam, so I don't think the baby quilt is going to be finished tonight and I don't think the shelves are going to be finished either.

Got the binding on the 30's quilt and now to sew it down. My goal is to have it done by Sunday so I can deliver it to the lady at church.
Delivered 2 Quilts With Love Quilts to be bound for someone else.
Did lots of running around for the scouts.
Did some mending and some filing. Lots more to do. Yuck.
