Christmas Round Robin

As you probably already know, I used to love to swap blocks, etc. At the beginning of the year I resolved to NOT swap so much and turn blocks into tops and tops into finished quilts! I am happy to report that I am making headways! I just finished quilt # 5 , have 2 out to be quilted, and 6 more ready to be quilted! But, alas, there are more on the unfinished pile! Some of them I don't even like anymore but will finish them and donate.

Another finished quilt

Spent some time in Western Ohio last week. Some "power sewing" and then got to play on a mid-arm quilting machine (wish I had one!!). Quilted two tops, but this is the only one that is completely done.

Also started my "Bella Bella" quilt....Hoping to finish my "Leaves" and then move on to the Bella soon. Maybe after the parents are done with all their surgeries?

Just Rambling

Kids are moved and settled (?). I worked on getting a guest room set up today between phone calls. Finally get to have my "30's" room! I've been in love with the reproduction fabrics for eons.......have 2 quilts on the bed and a wallhanging on one wall. I am working on taking three dresden plate blocks, found in my late MIL's sewing chest, and framing them for a wall grouping too.

Still working on my "leaf" quilt. Slowly making headways. But, am going to take a break from it and work on the Ripple Effect top for a day or so......want to get this one done so it can be quilted and ready soon so I don't have to rush next spring.

I am finding that I don't enjoy "scrappy" quilts as much any more. Have many ideas and wanna-dos and I think it's time I persued them!

Time for a snack, some TV, then bed....................later folks.
