It’s been a while…

I have not posted for a long time…since April. I have been reading other blogs and am enjoying the read. I was thinking of starting up again at a manageable pace. Life can be hectic and we need to make those choices of what to do with our time.

I would like to do a monthly review of what I have done.  So here is September.

A Twin Quilt for my Mom.

This week I long arm quilted a twin size quilt for my Mom.  It is a Fons and Porter “Winter” quilt kit.  Lovely pattern and colours.  Here is how it turned out.

My mom gave me this quilt to use on my bed.  It is a War of 1812 quilt design.  I long arm quilted it.  It has flannel on the back! Thanks Mom!

Love reading blogs…and what I am up to.

Part of my daily routine was reading blogs.  I used to love that part of my day.  I stopped for a while because I started listening to bible study videos instead.  I want to get back to reading blogs…less drama than FB!  I also want to post 1 or 2 times a month.  I miss that.

So after a funny fall of illness and away at Christmas I finally feel like I am back on the sewing/quilting track.  Yesterday was a very productive day.  This is what I worked on.

Too busy even for posting.

It has been a busy fall. I had lots of customer quilts to complete plus being back to work. Here are the pics of what I completed this fall. Most of these are long arm quilt customers unless the picture says commissioned then I made the quilt from start to finish.
