Soup's on

The soup is cooking, the potato soup from the Loopy Ewe blog, the bread is rising, from Paula Reid's blog and the mini poppy seed cakes are baking, from S Living. Thank you bloggers for sharing!

I must get busy in the quilt room now, have 2 customer quilts that need to be delivered on Tues.

I did finish the binding on the Lovers Knot. The Olympics gave me a great opportunity to sit and stitch. I will miss the games!

Off to quilt!

More UFO's Completed

The swap quilt in civil war fabrics made in Marlene's memory is all together. I love this block. Bonnie Hunter's Orange Crush. I packed this one to CA 2 years in a row to work on while at retreat, glad to get it done. I like how it turned out. Nice and bright. All the fabrics came from my scraps and stash. I am going to have to make more scrap quilts because the scraps are taking up too much space.
And finally Thimbleberries Hometown Christmas. I can hardly believe it is finally put together. I think I started it in 2004. It will be fun to quilt but it is rather big and will take me forever.

The next project is Paddle wheels and Pinwheels, another Thimbleberry pattern but I am doing it in Sentimental Journey fabric.
Progress on the piecing feels good but I sure am getting behind on the quilting!

Movin' On Up

A couple of finishes, at least in the construction process. The Chelsea Garden and the DWR are ready to quilt. I hope this is just laying wonky because I didn't straighten it out or it will be a bear to quilt!

I will be so glad when this one is finished and on its way to CA.
