Sewing/ Quilting Merrily Along

This is the quilt for the dad of the family I'm making the love quilts for. It's one of Bonnie's patterns.My dad wants one just like it. Bonnie is coming to my guild 3 weeks from tomorrow!!! I'm so excited. I have to finish the last quilt for the middle daughter. Top is almost done- hoping to finish it today and load it for quilting tomorrow. Maybe, just maybe I can get these quilts out by Monday. Wouldn't that be great???

Last year I did the first quilt along with Amanda Jean. I finally figured out something to do with half the blocks- I used the setting blocks from the second quilt along-lol. I'm sending it to a friend after I finish these love quilts. It's now hanging in que for it's turn in quilting.

I was more than 75% done with the hand quilting on Buffalo Troubles when the fabric ran in the love quilt. All the bonus hsts from that quilt are in Buffalo Troubles. I got a very helpful email yesterday saying I should baste a color catcher right to the 2 hsts that ran in the other quilt. Thank You Rose Marie
I hope it works.

Here's a pic of the label *S* Now to get the binding and this label sewn down.

Both quilts are lovely. I have to say I really really love the brown and white though. Your dad has good taste.
