Quilting Time!

I have actually had some time this week to quilt! I got the Halloween pinwheel quilt done except for the binding. I found these cute spiders to add to the spiderweb that I quilted on each block. So cute!

I have also been working on a Christmas quilt using a jelly roll.

A little quilting progress

I finally started quilting this quilt. I chose to do a loop design. I made the loops pretty small so it is slow going.

I needed a break from this quilt and found this cute Halloween fabric.
And spent the day making a tablerunner. And eating some ice cream.
My husband took the boys to Grandma's for a few hours so I had some quiet time all to myself! Pure heaven.
He also said I could buy a new sewing machine! Not sure what kind to get. Time to do some research :)

Back to reality

This is where I have spent the last 5 days. Pure heaven! We went to the Brainerd Lakes area of Minnesota for...  
Beautiful sunsets

Lots of fishing
Wonderful water views
The boys loved the sand, kayaks and being able to just drop your pole into the water to get fish. It was a great trip!

While we were there I was able to finish all of my hexagons. Now I need to decide what to do with them.

I was also able to stop by Country Fabrics and Quilting in Brainerd. They won 1st place in the Quilt Minnesota Store Display sponsored by Moda. This was a wonderful store. A great mixture of fabrics - batiks, Moda, Amy Butler, wool, flannels. I walked away with some Hope Valley by Densye Schmidt and some Amy Butler - I think from her Midwest Modern line but not positive.
