I was able to use one of my die sets to cut out block #21 of The Farmer's Wife (now sitting on my sewing machine waiting to be sewn together).
I was able to finish a small quilt that was made from purple scraps cut into 3.5 x 6.5 inch rectangles - not a large quilt, might need some borders.
Then, I moved onto cutting up some denim I have into 6.5 inch squares - am going to use 2.5 inch squares all the way around each of them to make a quilt.
So many projects,
A trip to Salem for a quilt show, via Dalles for fabric and another shop in Salem ... never did make it to the quilt show. We had a fun day anyway.
I was able to buy more fabric for a quilt I am going to make for my daughter - Twister - and my friend was able to purchase a back for a quilt she is making for her granddaughter.
A lot of driving and visiting.
I would like to quilt the front of my GD lap quilt differently from the back. It's a strip quilt on the front which I would stitch in the ditch. I want the otheside to look different. Would I use two pieces of batting and connect them when I bind it? I know this sounds like a silly question, but I'm just not for sure. I want this to turn out great. Thanks!

Boy, he's a goofy looking guy!
A few years back I bought a Pfaff Grand Quilter and the Next Generation quilting frame thinking I would quilt my own quilts. Wow what a learning curve. I have quilted 25 or more quilts but I never felt like they were very good. I just didn't have the control (or it seemed) and most everything was a simple meander. So one day I took my quilter off the frame and put it on the table and did a few table runners. It made a huge difference. They looked so much better and I decided to try quilts without

..another one for the "O crap" file! But I added a piece and rescued all that work! Then finished with Left 13.

The panel had 12 blocks fortunately as that is exactly what this pattern calls for - 12 9.5 inch blocks besides the other fabrics. The close-ups show the lovely fabrics better.
Do you like it?
My kids all went together and this is what I got for my birthday! I can hardly wait for this weekend when I can get out my scraps and set up to cut out a quilt or two ...
I am so blessed, both in gifts and love from family and friends!
