Messing around after work...

Okay, remember this pile of fabric? Well, here is what I made with it. I only worked on it after quilting customer quilts for several days in a row. It took a while, but I like how it turned out.
The pattern is actually a tutorial on Crazy Mom Quilts blog. I wrote down the particulars and made it from there. Now, I just have to finish the customer quilt I am working on so I can quilt this one! Maybe Sunday... we'll see.
Stay tuned.

Work, work, play!

Making progress on the quilt line, and having some fun at the end of the day, too. Maybe tomorrow or Thursday I will be able to post a picture of my zig zag quilt top! Plus, my husband finally made up his mind and we are getting him a Gammill of his own. It will be here July 17th and he is like a kid on Christmas Eve...
It may not look like much work, but consider this; I quilted three of the pieced flowers with the yellow centers quilt. I just didn't put up pictures of all of them, as they have identical quilting. My friend made them for her siblings using her mother's clothes. What a nice memory quilt. I have a Christmas quilt on the machine right now, but it isn't finished so you won't see it here.
This one is a king sized beauty! Took all day to do.

 Quilt #1 from Mom's clothes. I did two more just like it.

 Happy pumpkin quilt with dancing pumpkins quilting!

Tomorrow is Nifty Fifty sewing club and I plan to make headway on my nephew's quilt. I will be using the Off Track pattern again. Stay tuned, though, because it will be totally different from the first cheerfully colored one. Until then, happy quilting!
