A fruitful, Wazoo day

It was a rainy, gray day so I jumped right in and started quilting. The oriental quilt is for a customer. She made it for her brother who is getting married. Nice gift! I made the binding and have it sewn on and ready for the hand stitching.

Next, I finished the quilt for my nephew. Most of the hand sewing was done, so I sat down for a while and finished it up. You may recognize the pattern from a quilt I made last week called Off Track. It's a great pattern from Cluck, Cluck, Sew.

With a bit of time before I needed to start dinner, I made another block of the month for Craftsy trying to get caught up with the pack. Oh well, I am ready to do April now. HA! It isn't perfect, but good enough for a sample block.

Tomorrow, I will be tackling a tee shirt quilt I have in progress for another customer. The job is exciting and diverse...what's not to like?!

One week...only two quilts!

Wow! I have worked hard this week and finished the quilting on two lovely show quilts. The customer has been very patient waiting for me to have time to do the job, and I think she will be pleased. Both quilts are hand appliqued.The only fun thing I did was put the binding on the zig zag quilt and finish it up. On to the next! So many little time.
