working away

I can't find my camera.  I know I had it, so what did I do with it?
Anyway, I finished a wreath wall hanging and it is bound and ready to give.
I've got the Jo's club flying geese wall hanging ready to bind.  Been working on it in the car.
I am working on Mom's "The only thing I ever wanted" quilt.  I couldn't show you that one because it is Ann Smith's NYE Mystery.
I still have the border on the black and bright.  it will be a New Years quilt for Aunt Elizabeth.  I love the way it turned out.
I hope everyone is ready for Christmas and enjoying the season.
We are working on getting well and hoping it is a healthy 2012.

Finished Ann's Mystery UFO

I finally finished this one.  Very scrappy mystery that was started 2009?
It fits my king sized bed and might just stay there for now.

I'm working on finishing the quilting on 2 QOVs and hope to get them mailed this week.

Happy Thanksgiving.  My family was at my home and we had a wonderful day!
Easy Panel quilt for one of the many baby quilts due this next month

Another baby quilt that is fun.  I wish I'd put white between the piano keys, but that will be for the next one.  I have a few of these panels.
I love this quilt.  So easy to make, and I can see the baby and his brother laying on the floor playing with trains on this quilt.  This went to special Girl Scout friend that has been a leader with me for a few years.   
A few of the Girl Scouts went and decorated at the inpatient pediatrics ward at the San Antonio Area Medical Center (SAAMC) - it used to be Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC)  DD is taller than the tree.  LOL

I am working on a NYE Mystery that I should have already had tested.  :(
I'm also quilting another UFO that is going to our 93 year old aunt in California.

I made a couple of other things, but forgot to take a photo of them.  :( Hate it when I do that.

Stash report

Not had much stash using or reporting lately.  So, let's just say I've been lacking in reporting.
I changed my goal to 200 yards, and I have used 158.21 yards this year.
November I've only used 6.12 yards.  I would really like to have used lots more, but will be happy with this.

red hatters

We had a nice turnout today. 
Happy Thanksgiving Pot Luck today, and we ate really well.


After many hours of piecing batting and backing, this customer quilt is done.  Did loops in variegated blues and then the center has loops with hearts. Hope Karen likes it.

Another customer quilt.  This one was fun to play with.  I tried the new technique for me in the 4 patches (don't know what it is called) and did feathered hearts in the white space.  It was a fun quilt to quilt.
 Had a run on customer quilts this month.  This fun quilting went very quickly.  It was done with variegated tans and golds
Another customer quilt.  First Christmas quilt to quilt this season.  :)  Love this design.  I used the same thread on it as the brown quilt, but it looks totally different.
One of my own.  LOL First baby quilt finished.  Just realized I don't need 3, I need 4 by the end of December.  What was going on 9 months ago????  Very simple quilt, but I love it.
I'm working on some of my own quilts, but have not finished many yet.  Hoping that soon I will get some mojo going and all will work well for me.

Been busy

DD and a fellow Girl Scout are working on projects together.  One pillowcase, one pillow are finished.  Took a bit to get the rotary cutter to be safely used.  :) They enjoyed it and so did I. (if anyone knows how to turn a photo to get it going the right way, please let me know.)

Last night had Cleopatra, Master Wizard and witchy helping at a church Fall festival.

this quilt was given to the DREAM FACTORY for a silent Auction.  This is to help with their sponsorship.

 Making place mats for ME!  I'm finally making them.  Had them ready for years, but finally working on them.  I need to finish sewing them together.
Our wonderful Red Hat Buffalo Girls

These are the latest QOVs I've quilted.  QOV #100 and QOV #101

Green Monster is complete

I started this quilt at a retreat in 2009.  It was not an easy pattern because it was boring.  LOL  But, I had wanted to make it for my bed.  Instead it is going to a friend that is at the end of his battle with cancer. 

Vicki digitized this wonderful label.  Love the colors.

I had leftover blocks because I was going to make the monster even bigger.  So, I made a pillow to go with the quilt.  I really like the green and brown together.
One more UFO is complete.  9 yards of fabric was used.  Life is good.

This is the one charity I've been working on the longest.  Quilts of Valor.  This is QOV #98 and #99..  I have the pleasure of quilting quilts that others make.  :)

other things

In August, we had our red hat group.

DD has started riding again and loves being in the saddle.  We also got some rain on this day.  DD enjoyed putting the horses up and getting soaked.  LOL

Wilford Hall High Risk pregnancy Clinic

These little quilts go to the Wilford hall high risk pregnancy clinic.  They are for Moms that don't bring their babies home.  They have recently moved to Brook Army Medical Center (BAMC).  Thank you, Marge for all your donations.

Bastrop Fire Quilts

Project Linus from the Quilt Haus is providing quilts for the Bastrop, TX fire victims.  I'm helping to quilt them.

Misc Quiltings

Mary asked me to quilt one of her UFOs, a beautiful Fall tablerunner.

A quilt that will go to one of the charities.

A quilt that Tammy asked me to send to a flood victim.  This is one of the quilts for an entire family

Tammy Asked for this one to be quilted quickly.  the orange quilt.

Angel Cover Ministries

Not posted in a long time, but I have been doing things.  Lost the last post, but I'm going to break these down to my activities.
This quilt is to go to Angel Cover Ministries.  They don't have a machine large enough for some quilts.  Finally got it done, and now need to get it delivered.

Finally did something

I finally made a start at quilting again.  I quilted one for a customer, but I'm not sure I can post a photo of it, sooooo.
Marge Gordon of Delaware Quilts sent me these little quilts for the project at Wilford Hall Medical Center.  This is the place where they allow Moms that lose their babies to choose from items.  I put quilts in there for their use.  I've put 30 in so far and they are all given out.  How sad is that?  I finished these 3 today. . 

 One has been delivered and I'll pass the other two off next time I see my contact.  I actually have one more quilted and need to finish that binding.

This is the last project I finished for Jo's Club.  It still needs to be quilted, and I'm not sure how I am going to do that.  These are 1" unfinished logs.  Yikes!

This is QOV #98 that I finished this week.   
I have 1 more customer table runner to do and 4 more quilts to quilt.  I've already got the backing done, so it is just the loading of the quilts and quilting them. 
It feels good to be in the groove again.
