I am back

Well here is the first quilt that I have finished in the New Year. I started this quilt in Dec and decided to finish the one in the big frame.

Sorry I have not posted in awhile but the New Year hit me with a bang. The first week I was sick and when I thought I was over it, it said bang I am back. Well I hope that I have gotten rid of it now.

But I did not let it get the best of me. Mom and I have 2 nice size plastic tubs full of scraps. Well we got a stripping machine. I put it to work and have one of those tubs stripped.

I also put 2 baby quilts together and put another border on another one. I will show you those as mom and I get them quilted.

Back to the strips....... Well as some of you know my sister Margaret at average quilter has quilted our mothers round robin. She did not put the binding on. And mom got that quilt today in the mail. First thing we did was look at the strips and found the binding for it. Now all she has to do is put it on.

Mom also has a quilt she is almost finished with so please stay tune and don't give up on us. I will try to be better.

Hope you all have a nice and happy weekend

Glad that you are feeling better. I always think that I will have so much time when January arrives and then it is gone in a flash. Enjoy your stash busting.

Sorry to hear that you were ill. I am glad that you are enjoying the striping machine. I have been working on a quilt since the beginning of the year. I have the block done but now need to put the sashing on. I dont seem to get as much done in the evenings as I would like.
