WOW – October 24, 2012

Another fast week with lots of sewing.  First thing I want to say is what a great workshop Mukilteo Lighthouse Quilter’s had with Jenny Pedigo at Sew Kind of Wonderful last Saturday.  She is a very innovative quitter and her instruction was great.  I forgot to take photos of what I accomplished on Saturday but I will show you in the upcoming weeks as I continue to work on my quilt.  Jenny is having a sew–a-long on her blog so if you have not seen her wonderful quilts and ruler you should really check it out. 
Monday I finished Ian’s bed quilt.  I still need to wash it but he was ready to start using it so I skipped washing it for now. The lighting in his room is so bad that the photos are not great but you should be able to get a good idea of how it turned out.

I entered the quilt below in a local quilt show about a month ago and it was not done.  I have to drop it off on Friday so I decided to take a vacation day yesterday to get it finished.  I’m so in love with this I will be hanging it in my downstairs power room once I get it back from the quilt show.  I took some close ups so you can see the beading.



I also put the top together for my Promises & Borders quilt.  I will be putting some applique on this quilt before it’s done and ready to quilt.

Have a great week!
