WOW November 19, 2014

Well it’s been since this summer when I last posted on my blog.  Seems like life has just been so busy. I have been sewing like crazy lately even with my busy schedule just not writing about it.

I have quite a few things to share with you. I have been trying all year to finish up some of my very old UFO’s.  This quilt was started over two years ago.  It was paper pieced from a jelly roll it’s soft and feminine and I’m glad that I finished it.  This quilt will be finding a home with my cousin.

Next I finished my Chateau Hexagon quilt this is just a wonderful design and I could not love it more. It’s hanging in my family room.  I did a lot of eco quilting around the embroidery.  I always have a hard time deciding what to do around embroidery, but I like the way this turned out.

Thirdly I finished my Betsy’s Closet quilt I started this two years ago everyone was stitching this together I completed the block quickly but then decided to do an embroidery border that took me quite some time to complete.  Then it sat for the last year waiting to be quilted. Now that it’s complete it’s hanging in my sewing room and I can really enjoy this. The back ground quilting took forever but I’m glad that I did the small basket weave design.

Finally I started a new quilt Annabelle’s Adventures this is designed by a fellow blogger Michele Marll.  I’m using this pattern to teach two friend of mine how to do applique.   I just have the first three done and my students are still working on the first block.  I hope to get started on the next three soon.

Well I’m so happy to post some of my completed work I hope you all have a great week.
