Catch Up

I quilted my butt off this weekend. Trying to finish quilting all the tops I had in the house before I have to return the borrowed juki.
I still have a small baby quilt ( the burger queen mystery) and a mystery wall hanging that going to live with Paula when it's finished. But I don't think it'll happen till I get back from Buffalo Saturday. No time today- gotta get DS and myself packing. Tomorrow DD has state board testing for her cosmotology license and I'm her manaquin- so we leave early and get home late as the test is in Trenton :( Bringing my Amish Tumbling blocks to work on while she takes the written part of the exam.

A year or two ago Amanda Jean did a quilt along. I made all the blocks and there they sat. :(
THen she did another one that I didn't play in but I used her alternating blocks for this quilt along. It's going to a friend for a couch quilt.

I finally finished my ocean waves quilt. I love how it came out. I'm thinking of doing another one with Cindy's pattern.I guess she didn't post it there yet but I saw a great pic on one of my yahoo groups....I only have gagillion hsts ready to go.

After a very long time I finally finished the last of 4 love quilts. I'm waiting for the family to call me back so I can deliver them all- hopefully today.

Just need to sew the binding down on the quilt for my aunt with breast cancer.

I totally blame Cathi for this mess :)She has a great tutorial on her blog a few months back on the pinning of these cuties. I need a hand sewing project for the train on Wednesday. I had started english paper piecing a double wedding ring- what a mess. I have 23 fqs from a sale at Connecting threads all springy colors so I decided today was the day and I was going to print a couple hundred apple cores for the ride. Yep that's me, the insane one :)

So that's what I've been up to - taking my new camera to Buffalo and hope to take some more amazing pics at the Botanical Garden.
I'll post them to my other blog when I do.

Paper piecing a DWR?? Yikes!
You'll have a blast with those apple cores. They're SO much fun!! I'll happily take the blame. :)

Great projects. You'll get them all done as will I get all mine done in time. Isn't it funny we work on many quilts at a time. The apple cores are great. I need to make some one of these days.
