Nearly

Hi friends!
Got my binding made and sewed on and then trimmed the battening and backing down to the binding.
So when I have a few minutes I have been sewing down the binding.
Today I am going to work on her pillow shams so they will be done in time for her quilt.
Maybe by the weekend!

Beach Quilt

Hi friends!
Got busy yesterday and finished quilting Tonia's quilt.
Need to put the binding on as soon as I make it.
Blue I think since that's all I have enough of to finish it.
Doing loops ! Saw it on a quilt and though it was so pretty but mine not so much.
Should have just stayed with the ones I have had some practice with.
But got better as I went along.
Hope she love it!

Tonia's

Hi friends!
Fabric bought for Abby's quilt.
It's not as much as it looks , the light grey is three yards but the other two are smaller amounts.
I did get some quilting done on Tonia's quilt.
Started on Tonia's pillow shams to so they will be ready when I finish her quilt.
Spending the day at home today so maybe I will get lots done.
If I don't sit down with a good book!!!

They brought gifts for their father and one for us both.
Great right! That's one of the pictures that Abby had   make for her graduating Berry college
Made at her graduating party.
Made Tommy's day He saw or talked to all his girls.

Tonia's Quilt

Hi friends!
This quilt is folded and waiting on me to iron it.
It will wait a while until I finish the one that I am working on.
When they cut down our trees they left out drive way like a roller coaster.
So Tommy got out there one day last week and worked on it.
That tractor does come in handy!

Tonia's Beach

Hi friends!
Finally got around to sandwiching this quilt top.
It's in line now to do as soon as I get my daughter's quilt finished.
I still need to make Tonia's pillow shams but will do that while I am quilting the top. Can't quilt for to long it tires your shoulders pulling on it so much.
Have a great weekend

Beach Quilt

Hi friends!
After measuring it and determining that it need three inch strips, I found out it needed 1 1/2 inch strips. So used Jack the Ripper on it, just took a little while.
Got it fixed and sewed on.
Used 1 1/2 strips and putting on the top was a breeze.
Taking shape!

Tonia's Beach Quilt

Hi friends!
I started the top with just one block joined to the next one.
And two more.
Had to stop because I needed to get ready for Q-Bee's yesterday.
This will be the bottom of the quilt.
You can see that the  beach scene is up side down.
Just need to sew this one on  and make up the other blocks into the top.
But planning on going to see Allie Pinned tonight so maybe tomorrow.
She has two years of nursing behind her and will continue taking classes so she get a job that pays more.
Our babies are growing up!
After Next June we will just have one out of 22 that's still in high-school.
Next June we have one graduating from Lafayette, two from Trion and one from Gainsville.
Just hope we can make all of them. That two are not at the same time.

Tonia's Beach Quilt.

Hi friends!
I took off the three blocks I had sewed down to the panel.
Then added this! The ones on top of this post
Put them by my chair to be ripped!  . Then took three more and added the strips between each block and sew it onto the other side.
Now have a good part of this top done. Now for the tops and bottoms and the border.

Tonia's Quilt

Hi friends!
To make it work out right I am adding strips of sky blue between each block .
Sat. I sewed together eight blocks to go around the panel.
Nearly out of fabric but this should be just right , a couple of left over quarter blocks for pillow shams should do it.
The perfect amount of blocks to go around it with just a little help  from saching to make it fit just right.
More next time
