This weeks accomplishments

Nearly Insane(ish) #1 is on Colleen's bed now. This is a California King bed and the quilt finishes at 118x118. My first and last jumbo quilt. Today Joy came over and we each made a purse. I could kick myself that I didn't take a picture of Joy's purse, it came out so great with the fabrics she picked from her stash. Here is my version of the reversible bag.
Look what I won on Darlene's blog. I love charm packs and I adore Schnibbles patterns. What a great gift!! Thank you Darlene!!!
Three more Klosjes made last night.
I finally finished the binding on the Crazy Catz. Just made it in time for Halloween.
This is October's "Catalicious" BOM. I think I only have a filler block to do and then figure out how I am going to set these. I thought a pattern would be given to us at the end but I think we are on our own.
I also finished another redwork basket. Four more to go before I have to figure out how to set these too. I sure wish I knew how to work my EQ7. LOL!!
Have a happy, healthy, crafty week!

I'd say that's a JUMBO quilt. I've NEVER made one that big.

I think red & white quilts make beautiful designs regardless of what pattern you use. The new quilt is a beauty.

Love, love, love Nearly Insane(ish). Crazy Catz is so cute, my sister and I are going to make this quilt for my other sister from homespuns. I'm not sure when, but it is on the To-Do list!

I'm still loving my purse! Have the next one planned in my head!

Your blocks are gorgeous - the redwork is so pretty! I thought my sister might like those Klosjes...I was right!

Off to tackle a few Sylvias. You have almost lapped me twice around! I can't let that happen!!

I do not know how you manage to achieve so much in such a short time........!!!

LuAnn said...

Love your Nearly Insane. I've seen a couple of red and white NIs and sometimes I wish I had done that instead of the green but probably won't do it over again. LOL Beautiful stitcheries, too!!!
