One last thing...

Tomorrow we go to the house in Georgia and I will have limited sewing time there, so I decided to make the blocks for the next retreat project today and get a jump on the quilt. They went really fast, too!
Maybe you'll see some sewing from the new digs...who knows?!

Customer's Modern Sampler finished!

This quilt was a stretch for me, because I don't get too many 'modern' style quilts from customers. The batting is a thinner cotton, so I didn't want the quilting too dense or it would have been stiff instead of soft and drapey. I used a lot of straight line quilting with some swirls and circles to soften the look. There are eight colors of variegated thread on it! I think it looks great, and the customer will be pleased.
Mr Wazoo did one quilt today, and then went outside to gather up pots and yard ornaments for the trip to Georgia on the weekend. We will have another truckload of stuff going, but much smaller than the last time. It may only take one more load after this to completely move out. The Gammills will be the last things to go. I sure hope I have all my quilts from the queue finished!!
Enjoy the photos...I got carried away taking photos of the blocks. :o)

The back is pieced, and shows the quilting up nicely

Raffle quilt quilting all done!!

I started early and got the raffle quilt finished! I am stoked to have it off my table and on to the binding whiz. The colors don't show up as I would like, but you get the idea. I put it on the murphy bed, but it isn't the best bed to photograph quilts on. Oh well, I will get a better picture when it is hanging properly somewhere.
Now, back to work, and on to the next project in my line of quilts to be done!

On the rack with just the stitch in the ditch done

Three days later...all done!

The back is pieced, too

The back

Here is sort of how it would look on a bed

Ready to go to the next person to finish.

Raffle quilt progress

I did all the stitch in the ditch on Saturday, and quilted the borders on Sunday. Today, I finished the quilting on the 9 patches and the light squares, as well as the fan border. I'm pooped!! The quilt is in the homestretch, and should be all quilted tomorrow afternoon! I will take some pictures and post them when I am done. For now, off to bed!
Oh yes...the bathroom work is finished except for the guy who finishes the edge where the tile meets the carpet. Yippee.
