Progress

Hi Friends!

I finally finished the few home improvement projects I had planned.   A few new floors and a lot of paint happened here.  

I am back to sewing on my free time.  I was fortunate to have two weeks off from work so I was able to reacquaint myself with my sewing machine.

I finished one the "Charming Addition" quilts I started a few months ago.  This will be for a gift for my friends father.   I made the backing but am waiting to quilt it.  I am going to be taking a longarm quilt class and then I can rent one of the machines she has.
I also caught basket fever.  We are supposed to make one basket a day in the month of July.  I am up to this Tuesday.   I will soon be behind since I only sew on the weekend.

These are little applique blocks from "Fit to Frame" #6.  I plan on making all twelve blocks and framing them for my future sewing room.


The next three are from "Ode to 30's"   Joy and I are on a mission to finish this quilt by the end of the year.  



I also decided to start working on "Rainbow Jane" again.  I am planning on 10 blocks a month until she is done.  Here is my progress so far.




I also made an entire wall hanging that I forgot to take a picture of.  I dropped it off yesterday to be quilted so I won't be able to share until I get it back.


Well, that's all I have.  I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Yvette

That's ALL you have? Goodness Yvette! You have been sewing up a storm during your vacation! Gorgeous blocks, each and everyone! Can't wait to see all of the 30's blocks, and I don't think you'll have any trouble keeping up on your basket blocks...

WOW, that charming additions quilt is really stunning. Love the colors you used--has a masculine feel to it. Always looking for that for my boys. You have been busy!!! The baskets are darling.

Love Charming Addition. I have mine all cut, just haven't started sewing.
Your baskets are adorable! Keep up the good work.
I love Fit to Frame patterns, but I don't do the appliqued ones. These are really cute.
Rainbow Jane is stunning!

You certainly get a lot done when you have the time. You've definitely made good use of your time. Love your Dear Jane blocks and your schedule. I wish that I could sew along with you, but I haven't touched mine in two months!!
