My son LOVES firefighters, (and construction vehicles, and trucks, and anything else that moves :)! So 18 months ago - yes 18 months - as in this top has been sitting on a shelf since June 2013 - I finished this beautiful red/black/white fire themed quilt top.
I need to assemble a backing, baste then quilt and bind this quilt - in two weeks!! I pulled a bunch of fabrics, most of them are smaller pieces (less than 1/2 yard) left from piecing the front. It'll be a crazy mis-mash of prints, but that's cool cause he loves crazy (he loves me - right!?!)
My son really wants a new quilt for Christmas!!
And I've barely spent 5 hours on the sewing machine in the last 6 weeks....I really hope I can find the time to get it done!
Our little quilting group is making great progress this month on our Starry Night QAL, I'm the last to finish!
My latest memory quilt was delivered last weekend, and it's a cute one!
A new applique technique this month really challenged my fabric folding ability!
Starry Night QAL January blocks complete! Our group made 12 blocks last week for our new quilt along :)
Mary is a local quilting friend who loves to piece, but gets bogged down during quilting. These are 2 of the quilts I machine quited for her this spring :)
