Catching up!

Two more quilts quilted!! Woohoo!  So since I've actually started using my machine again here's what I've done

  • pieced tops 1 (it's a baby quilt but it's a flimsy now, and might even be completed prior to baby girl's arrival, maybe...)
  • Quilted on the long arm 6 - yesssss!!! 
  • binding - 1, :( why, why do I dislike binding so much? 
  • material waiting on the cutting table anxiously awaiting it's turn - 1 (wedding is in March, need to get a move on)
Here's the latest two that were quilted.  Both will go to Sage Cancer Center here in McHenry
Love using up those 2.5 in scraps.  Batting is Hobbs Polydown, Hot Pink glide thread on top, Panto is Patricia Ritter Marigold

Used up some solid scraps on this one.  There is patter on the web, will need to look for it.  Batting is Hobbs Polydown, Glide thread Vegas Gold (I think), Panto is Jessica Schick Prism  - striking huh???

And a sweet little baby quilt flimsy

Heading out to Lancaster PA in a few days - any one have recommendations on quilt stores or places where there's some wonderful eye candy????


  1. Not IN Lancaster, but near...Log Cabin Quilts in Bird in Hand is my fave. The girls there are so sweet,and they carry very nice fabric. Then there's the Old Country Store in Intercourse, and Zooks down the street from that store. A ways up Highway 897 (about a 45-minute drive) is Burkholder's. That store will make your head spin!!! Weaver's Dry Goods is up in that neck of the woods, but you'd have to google the address, and both of those stores have wonderful fabric with great prices. Weavers has another smaller store in Ronks, which is closer to the Intercourse area, called the Dutchland Quilt Patch, and it's right around the corner from Deinner's Country Restaurant, where you can get a perfectly wonderful meal after all that shopping!!! Hope you have a great time!!!

  2. It is so great to see you quilting (and blogging) again. I love that solid quilt very much!

  3. All three of the quilts are wonderful but I love the blue and brown one and the quilting is amazing. If you find the pattern name let us know as it looks like a great one for donation quilts, fast and easy. Have fun in Lancaster!

  4. Wow, Sue -- that prism pantos is stunning! How do you do a freehand panto and keep your lines so straight as you follow the pattern?

  5. WOW!! Excellent job - how fun to work with so many creative people. Look at all of those wonderful quilts!



I would love to hear from you, comments and questions welcome!
