Yes I have been busy since we got back from our trip. I have two more scheduled posts from our trip and then it is done. Right now I am trying to finish up on three things and have been concentrating on them.
X Marks the Spot – 49 X’s and all but 12 of the X’s are quilted and the border – pretty much straight across this area is where I am working right now.
The triangle quilt has no name right now. I can’t come up with one! I decided after I put the first black border on it to leave it at that – I liked it as is and the red strips I cut were put in the strings box for later use.
I am trying to machine quilt straight lines on it and it will be a work in progress for several days. I got it pin basted yesterday and got started. I will try to do a couple hours of work on it throughout the weekend and maybe it will be done by Monday. Just want to get it done! Yes I thought I would give machine quilting another try – I do not know if I will be satisfied with it though.
I have been working on Joseph’s Coat as well. Progress but not a lot.
I will get back to the other projects soon.
EDITED: I should mention I suppose that I am not affiliated with either of these shops! Just something I wanted to share.
I don’t know about the rest of you but yesterday’s mail brought me two quilting catalogs – one from Keepsake Quilting and one from Nancy’s Notions and I have never noticed such a difference in price on the same item as in these two catalogs!! The links go to the pattern shown below.
This pattern is from McKenna Ryan called “Heaven and Nature” – a Xmas quilt – Keepsake offers it for 79.99 per month as a 7 month block of the month – a total of $560.00!! Nancy’s on the other hand offers it at $189 for the patterns and the fabric package (total 13 yards) I don’t know why there is such a difference in price – the fabric looks the same – mostly batiks. I checked their web pages and what is on the catalog listed as price is the same on the web pages. You might want to check it out if you are interested in the pattern before you buy. I love it and would love to buy it but I think I already got enough fabric and quilting stuff while we traveled would love it though!
