Moving Right Along

Joseph’s Coat, quilts

Progress, progress – don’t you just love that word.  Progress for me on two fronts – both of the quilts that I am working on right now.

I quilted on Joseph’s Coat two different times yesterday and I can say that I might get done with one more row of this quilt later today and will be able to crank it down some more tonight.  It is so hard for me to stick with these two projects instead of starting more!  But I do so want to get done with these two big ones.


I am done with this long side of the Bow Tie Medallion quilt  and worked on the flower cluster in the corner last night – just one more leaf and one more flower to stitch down and then I will start on the long side left to do.    I had thought to toss some of those left over half hexies in here but it didn’t look right so this is it.


I will still have time to add some embroidery here and there and I think I will have plenty of time to do so – I think I will not be done with the quilting on Joseph’s Coat for another 2 weeks at least so would have time to do some embroidery on this border as well.


What are you all up to today?  I know it is Halloween but with no children around my house and living in the country we rarely have trick or treaters show up – I have a package of candy bars waiting but I have a feeling I well regret getting those as we well eat them ourselves!

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    I love the border on this one! It is really adding dimension to this quilt! I am putting binding on the second Christmas quilt gift, completing the quilting on the 3rd and then binding it, and on to finishing the quilt top in the 4th Christmas quilt gift and then quilting it! I should be completed by Christmas but it is playing havoc on my wrists! One complete week off at Thanksgiving for a family cruise! Hopefully I won’t get too behind!

    You really are making progress. It’s so fun to see what you will accomplish next.
    Happy Halloween! Because we just spent 9 days taking care of the grandbabies, and took them Trunk or Treating Saturday night, we too will spend a quiet evening at home. Sounds perfect to me.

    The quilts are looking fantastic. I, also, can’t wait to see what’s up your sleeve for the next quilt. Well since I live in NJ, Halloween was cancelled till Monday night. No Trick or Treaters this evening. So more days to be tempted with this candy hanging around… I’ve been working on an I spy quilt for my 2 year old granddaughter. It’s slow going since I babysit her during the week. Not much time to do any sewing but she is a joy.

    The border is stunning!! Rarely have we had Trick or Treaters out here (5 miles from town!) but 16 month old g.grand will make an appearance around 6 pm. Candy and camera awaits!!!!

    You amaze me at the amount of sewing you accomplish! Two more weeks and two finishes, WOW! I have three baskets of clean laundry to fold and iron today, not much fun here.Maybe if I get a move on I might be able to fit in a little piecing before I start cooking a Lamb Bake Dinner and a Middle-Eastern Orange Cake.

    That’s great progress! Halloween isn’t celebrated BIG here. I’ve seen in the newspapers they have something in kindergartens, but I don’t think they go from door to door… too many dangerous dogs here and most people are not outside after dark.

    Love the border as it is. Embroidery will sure enhance it, though.

    No trick or treaters for me either.
