More misc. projects

I finished 2 tops that I started a few years ago. I passed them on to Joy who will quilt them to donate to the crisis center. 2 UFO's off my list. WOO HOO!! Daisy and Linda were trying to help me iron one of them. Below is June's calendar redwork BOM.
Here is July's wonky handled Tisket a Tasket block. I told ya I wouldn't disappoint this week. I think this is the wonkiest one to date. LOL
Today I went to my good friend Ellen's house for a sew-in. It was so nice to be with the girls. I was able to get three more Sylvia's Bridal Sampler blocks done. 5 down, 135 to go. LOL My goal is to do a row at a time and start putting them together as I go.
I also fused 8 more Blooming Flowers blocks. All the flowers are done, I now have to begin stitching them on.
7 more 9-patches were also knocked out for the summer nine patch a day project. I am caught up till tomorrow.
I hope you all have a HAPPY, HEALTHY, QUILTY week.

How nice of you to become a follower of my blog. I was so excited to see you there. I love yours! So many projects in just the latest post alone. Can't wait to peruse your archives! I'm particularly interested in your blooming flowers blocks. Are the patterns out there on the 'net and I missed them?? They look right up my alley. Thanks again. karen

Carrie P. sent me to your blog and it is delightful!! Your red and white nearly insane-ish quilt is specatacular!! Just stunning! Your little "helpers" are precious. I have a helper kitty, Weasley, and he will be 4 on the 4th of July. I did have him declawed on his front paws...it was traumatic for him (and me), but he did well with it and now I am glad I had it done. He was fixed and declawed at the same time, poor baby. But he is very sweet, so I don't think he holds a grudge.

You get a lot done and so darn well, too!

In cheers,
Teresa :o)

You're awesome, you know that? I love your Tisket Taskets.... I am looking forward to getting that project out of hiding one day and working on it!

Thank you so much for the amazing floral quilt tops. They will be so appreciated! Now if I can just quilt them decently!!

Have a great rest of the week!

Hi Yvette,

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I have had a look through your blog and you do very nice work. I think poodles are just lovely dogs too. They are great for quilters - no hair left anywhere!
