Finishes!!!

I have a couple of tops finished that I've been working on.  The first is my Match-A-Patch Star quilt.
 The stars are all done from my stash scraps and then I added the white on white that I had.  Also the blue was some fabric I got a while back and it just fit perfectly into the pattern.  The backing will be a pieced backing of the blue and white.  It is king sized and hope to do the quilting myself in the next month or so.

The other is an hourglass quilt I made out of some of the fabric I got for Christmas. It is twin size and I am not sure who to give it to.
I have been very busy getting the baby things ready for Dawn's baby. And I need to get some baby things ready for Jennifer's baby boy.  I have a little time for that one. 

I got a new car...sold my old one in one day (must have priced it right)  My new one is used but in very good condition.  It needs a transmission but is drivable locally . Here it is!!!
I love it.  It is very comfortable and easy to drive.  Has a great radio, CD player and Cassette player.

Well that's enough news for now.

Sewing Progress

I have been sooooo busy lately.  Besides keeping the books for my sons businesses I have decided to take on doing the books for another fellow that has multiple businesses also.  But, my computer has not been cooperating.  I have sent it in twice for a keyboard problem.  Hopefully I get it back soon and it will work perfectly.  I spent two whole days just cleaning carpets in the motor home.  Since the leak is fixed I needed to clean the water spots.  They cleaned up nicely.

With all that going on I still have been able to get some sewing done.  I have put together the blocks made from Missouri Star Quilt Company's video.  It is called Flying Geese Log Cabin.

 Here is the single block..
 Now I need to put on some borders.  Still can't decide what the borders will be.  I don't have any of the actual fabric left but have bought some solid fabrics that match quite well.  If I do too much in the borders it will distract from the pattern but on the other hand I don't like the idea of too plain of a border.

Right now though I am working on another quilt I started when I was down south.  It is called Match  A Patch Stars.  I found it in a Fons & Porter booklet that came with a magazine. 

This is what I have been doing.
 I have 60 stars made using fabric from my stash.
The quarter square triangles are also fabric from my stash.   I have 18 more to finish then I will start making the rows.  I am anxious to get this one finished.  I am hoping to get it quilted by the end of the month.

Besides that I have been working to put together my BOM from the guild.  Here are the blocks I have finished for that.






I have a few more but couldn't find the pictures.

Well that is what I have been up to.   Keep quilting on!!
