    Here are the results of my Motivational Week!!!! Please add yours!!

    Hello again!! As promised here are pictures of what I was able to accomplish this week. I hope this has been as a productive a week for all of you that joined me on this adventure as it has been for me. I didn't get all I wanted to do done. But, I knocked a big chunk out of it!! The best part is.... that it has gotten me geared up to finish even more next week. Here's mine. Now show me yours.
    the first picture is a quilt that I quilted on my long arm for an elderly lady in the community. It will be a wedding present. The second picture is of the blocks I hand stitched this week while I watched TV at night with my DH. the third one is a box of completed blocks I machine stitched for a giant drunkard path and the one block I put together. More coming next week!!!!

    Lovely work! I've sorted 12bins of fabric and it's filled my bookshelf in my closet nicely. Still working on organizing the rest of the room so no pictures yet. It's good to see that I have plenty of sparkly fabrics and holiday fabrics and maybe it's time to sew some up. I've found a young teacher in my school who would love some theme curtains for her classroom window that faces the hall so want to get started on that.

    And your projects are lovely!

    Well I have been something of a slacker this month. I did buy some new material for a new baby quilt,finish a table runner and work on a couple of UFO's but you have certainly put my efforts to shame. Beautiful quilt and I love your Drunkard's Path blocks too.

    Both extremely beautiful quilts! It always amazes me to see what a change a pattern takes on with different fabrics. Thank you for sharing.

    Both of these quilts are just beautiful, I love the black and white and also the drunkards path . I want to make a drunkards path some day I think it is hard to make. You did a beautiful Job.

    Not nearly as productive as you have been, but still pretty proud of how much I've gotten done. Finished one top, a carpenters star with borders added on the ends to make a lap quilt, got about 2/3 done with a second that has a third round added, got almost half the binding stitched down on a small throw, and started searching for border fabric for a scrappy that needs to be bigger to cover the twin bed in my other bedroom. Going to be busy with other projects (not quilt related) so probably won't get nearly as much done these next few weeks.
