I got one of the tops quilted last night. The floral fairies are from Mamu, the batik and the leafy purple-blue are from my LQS

made this baby blanket from moda Bliss... it is much brighter than the picture... it is a gift for a friends grandbaby....


The next 3 are charity quilts for Quilts for kids... they send you one all cut and ready to sew and ask that you send a couple more... the 4 patch is the one they sent... I loved doing the star in a star and the 3rd is a mini twister... very addicting...

I got another flimsey quilted. As I said before, the wonderful flying pigs fabric was from Mamu. Such a delight toplay with. I really like this Fauz LeMoine pattern for a quick quilt that still looks intentional. (Around here, I see some UGLY charity quilts, for which there is no excuse, IMHO.)

I showed off a few of these quilts at my guild's meeting today. They were a hit. I thought I would have all the fabric used by now, but I've got a bit more to go.

Thank you Mamu!!

I had that quilt with me to drop off at the charity, but we were too long at the chiro. He, however, laughed loudly!

I got another flimsy done, using a pattern I just invented (although I am quite sure it''s too simple to be ONLY mine). I had so much fun that I made another with the same fabric from Mamu. I got the body of the quilt nearly done, then, I have began having more problems than usual with the awful ankle. I laid low for 2 days, finished the 2nd top and realized I'd changed directions in the last (middle) seam of the quilt body. Oh well. It's just gonna stay like that.

Yolu will see it again, as I have another flimsy made with it. All that is left now is a few small scraps.

Don't bother looking too closely, because I messed up the picture. I promise to take a better one when I quilt it. This is the flimsey I finished today, between explaining carbs, portion size and downloading info for my DH. It's a good thing my students were more willing learners.

The pale fabric was from Mamu. Unless I've hidden something from myself, I have one more nearly finished top to go with the stash she sent me.
