I started getting sick again and ended up with a massive Sinus Infection. I was out of commission for a little over a week.
I did get a quilt finished. It is my Blue Plate Special quilt. Here is a picture of the top before I quilted it.
I echo quilted around the plates and then on the borders just stitched in the ditch. I was so pleased to finish it. When I got the binding attached I found I was 22" short. I knew I had some extra fabric but could not for the life of me find it. So I just used some of the maroon fabric to add to the binding, so one corner is maroon. I kind of like it that way. Now to add the label.
I was able to acquire more charm packs of a set for a great fall quilt I want to make.
And, lo and behold I won some fabric from my favorite blogger Maureen Cracknell Handmade...here is a link to her blog http://www.maureencracknellhandmade.blogspot.com/ and here is a picture of the fabric I won....
I also did finish a baby rag quilt for my great niece Erin. She is having a baby girl the first part of December. I made some burp cloths for her too.
I just mailed it the other day so am anxious to hear she got it and likes it.
The 1st of October I mailed the quilts to my sisters in California.
My fun House quilt "Won't you be my Neighbor" went to my sister Sandy.
They all seem to be pleased with them. And it was such a joy to share my favorite things with them.
A little note of interest is the newest addition to my son's family. His little girl Hailey wanted a puppy for Christmas. Well, they got one a little early...It is a shorkie named Roxy. here are some pictures...
This is Hailey holding Roxy...
She is such a cute little pup and only 8 weeks old.
I've also been working on my charity rag quilts..I made this sports themed boy quilt...
Well, I guess I am through posting all the news as of now.
