National Quilt Day

has come and gone. And I didn't get much of anything quilty done. sigh. I did get lots accomplished otherwise but not much quilting.

I did finish one block for a BOM. This one is pieced and appliqued and there is a good bit of work to it so I am fortunate to have had enough time to finish it:

Not done on NQD but still a recent finish is a new spring tote bag:

I've been working on baby quilts. I've decided to work with the Downy Touch of Comfort quilt project and have the first top finished and ready to quilt. A number of people I work with are expecting babies. We'll be blessed with one in September, two in October and one in November if all goes according to schedule - so I have quite a few quilts to be working on.

So until next time, hugs and stitches, Jody

Quilting Changes

take some getting used to. As I mentioned earlier, this year I'm scaling back on my projects. I'm working more hours so I have less time and I'm ready to start working on some bigger projects, which require more time to complete. I'm loving the projects I'm working on - but sometimes I do feel like it's been so long since I've completed something I really just want to hold up something and say "finished!".

So here it is: lol.

I had this table runner done except for the binding last fall. So I did up the binding and now I have one more item in the finished column. lol.

Work continues on my BOMs. Here's the third block I've done in the Pushin' Up Spring BOM.

I have a rare treat - two and a half days off work in a row - over National Quilt Day no less! So I'm going to do my best to squeeze as much quilting as I can into that time while still keeping my house from looking like who did it and ran.

Hopefully there will be lots of pictures of progress even if nothing gets finished.

Until next time, hugs and stitches. Jody
