Catching up! Part One - Quilting

Looking back I suddenly realised that I have neglected my blog for two whole months.  I have been productive during this time both in my garret (which is actually my basement) and out in the garden, though that does a lot of stuff on its own without my input.

I spent a lot of time working on a future gift quilt, which now needs just the borders to be quilted and then the binding attached before it goes away until 2018! It isn't often I have something made so far ahead of time, but I will be pleased to get this one of my UFO list.  Finishing the quilting on this is my One Monthly Goal for June. Here is a little peek at it:

My En Provence quilt went off to Missouri Star Quilt Co in early April and made its way back to me last month while I was away on my travels. I am really pleased with the results and have completed the binding and the label and now need to package this beauty up for shipping to its new home in the UK

Also on the quilty front I started and finished a baby quilt for one of my husband's colleagues whose baby boy is due in mid June.  I got the top made before my aforementioned travels and the quilting, binding & label this last week. Just in time!

Christa's Colors is layered up and pin basted ready for quilting.  This is probably my next project after the "secret" one.

I also made a quick rail fence doll quilt to add to our guild donation to Toys for Tots.  This used up some of my left over binding strips.


  1. Nice to work on an UFO. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck on your project.

  2. Wow you have been busy! So many beautiful projects.
