Long time not posting

Well, I was not doing much quilting.  I can't believe it has been a month since I posted.  But I've painted my DD's room, I've gone to visit a quilting friend, I've had my husband in town from Los Angeles and life took over.  I have done some things, and hope I can remember them.  These little pincushions were for a swap, but didn't get mailed in time, so I'll figure out something else to use them for.  These were made from bonus hst.  Finished size is half an inch.  What was I thinking????
My big project was a scrappy quilt for my DH.  I've been working on this one for over a year now.  It is one of my UFOs.  I was stalled on it and overwhelmed, but worked on it while I was vacationing in San Pedro.  I quilted it when I got home and just finished up the binding yesterday.  DH says it is now on his bed in Los Angeles.  I'll be with him every night because of the quilt.  :)

I visited a friend in Medina and this is one of her quilts.  She wanted hearts and stars meandered around the quilt.  Got it done this week.
When I got back to the school, we found out that a dear teacher has breast cancer and is going to start chemo and radiation soon.  One of the people there had these two tops ready and I quilted them with large meandering.  They will be tied with prayers.  This is a prayer quilt.  Front and back.

This is a quilt Vicki made for Jessica.  It is so pretty. I enjoyed quilting it

Tammy made this quilt for a wedding gift.  I quilted hearts all over it.  Got it mailed off earlier this week, so hope it is to her in time to finish for the wedding.  Very pretty fabric.
This is another piece made by Tammy.  It is a Christmas wall hanging.  I had fun trying new things on it.  I did loops and outlined the squares.  I need to get more control over my long arm to made it more accurate.
