Now for the quilts

Along with the house remodel, we have been fighting the stomach flu and now a sinus infection. Also my dog has been put on prozac to try and control her peeing in the house. She was a stray I picked up on the side of the road and she pees whenever she is excited or nervous so basically we can't touch her. So far so good. Now on to the quilting!

 This quilt is made from Denise Schmidt fabrics that I got in Minnesota this summer. I can't remember the name of the pattern, but it goes together very fast and is fun to do.

 Here are a couple of Fruitcake tablerunners for teachers.

 This pumpkin tablerunner was started almost 2 years ago. I finally finished it last week. I tried scalloped edges along the border - not too bad to do. The hand stitching of the wool pieces was why it took so long.

 I started these squares  to be made into a pillow (I need three more) but I don't think I am cut out for the free quilting on these. It was very stressful to get these 6 done. I am planning on just making them into a tablerunner instead.
 One more Fruitcake tablerunner. This is a Moda Bakeshop tutorial.

Here is my 12 Days of Christmas quilt. I saw this pattern on Moda Bakeshop and started it that same day. This and the Denise quilt are ready to be quilted. Hopefully I will start them this weekend. I plan on doing the Denise in a pebble pattern.
Well that is all for now. Thanks for stopping by!

I am alive!

I can't believe it has been over a month since I last posted. I have been very busy around the house. We finally got the drain tile and sump pump put in, retiled the basement, redid the downstairs and the upstairs bathroom. I finally have my house and my sewing room back.

Photos of the downstairs bathroom and my first Dresden plate and tumbler quilt. I still need to make a frame to put around the Dresden. I have always feared these thinking they were too hard but it was fun to do.

Upstairs bathroom - the walls are a very soothing blue-grey. My son says it is very pretty.
Also a couple photos of my sewing room.
I have also been very busy sewing xmas presents. I will be back with a post of the quilt projects. I need to make supper right now :)
