Crimson and Clover....

This is the name my friend gave this quilt...


















I love it. It's my first attempt at appliqué on a quilt. I'm a little better now, practice is the key. I have since done a couple of other ones... Getting a little better each time.

Canton...

So some of the things we have done...
Canton...
Awesome...spent 7+ hours shopping and we still did not see it all.


Bonus... I splurged and bought a vintage quilt! I have NEVER done anything like this before.



I believe it's called "cathedral windows"... It's in really good shape.


Huge also, and weighs a TON!
I was told Red Rock has better treasures... So, that's on the list for next time.

Lolli Pop Hill...

So finally, here it is...
I had to take a short cut on some of the things just because I had to get it done. I had a BIG interruption that through me off track. More on that later.
It's even quilted... Only top picture though...


I took others after it was quilted but I guess I moved around to much because top corner was blurry.



It's in the washer now.. So we gotta wait. But these were taken out back earlier in the day. I'll snap more pictures in the daylight. I am anxious to see the final project.


So stinking cute, even if I didn't do some of the other cuteness it was asking for.
Ready to pack up tomorrow for the trip to Texas.

Red work...

Since I've been off for summer vacation, all of us quilting buddies try to get together every Friday and sew, stitch, whatever we have that has to be done.





Last Friday, I finished up row 2, and today after sitting in Jury duty for 6 hrs today, I finished row 3!
This has been my handwork I do when I watch tv. It has taken awhile, because with summer here, I don't turn tv on that much these days.





So now, I have to take the 'stay' stitches out, starch, iron and assemble the frames to all of these.





I did not notice till I took them outside to take a picture, that one of the rows, the background fabric is a shade off. Hmmm. How did that happen? In the picture right above, it's the middle one.
I think once I get all the outside blocks on and frame it up, either of 2 things will happen. 1- you won't notice it (that's what I'm hoping for) or 2- it will totally set if off and it will look awful. Either way, it's going together. Too much work has gone into this baby!
