New quilt - Finished

 I finished this quilt this morning 12 /31/2012.   It is for Amy Boyd Wyman's baby who was born earlier this year.

I have worked most of the day on this quilt top, it's finished.   I started it yesterday, see below:

These are the arrow points for the "On the Go" quilt I started today.   All the fabric for the top and back is cut.   I made both the small and large arrow points today.  I can tell it's been a while since I sat behind the sewing machine, my shoulders ache.

Living Room - Jamie

I have been busy working on curtains for my daughter Jamie.   She and I went to a fabric warehouse sale near Anderson,SC  she picked out fabrics and I was given my assignments.  Mom make curtains for my LR, DR, Breakfast nook, Kitchen and Laundry room.   Here are what the LR panels look like, after barely getting started she decided she wanted them lined.  She is going for a beachy feel to her LR. so these are a linen fabric.  She may do some additional embellishment once she hangs them.  Sure hopes she likes them, since I made 4 of them.  Going to call her to tell her she needs to finish painting and get the curtain rod hung, now that the curtains are done.

Rainbow Afghan

I was so touched by this gift.  My friend Sherri Wigger is most recently into making rainbow afghans.  She is incredibly talented and a wonderful teacher. Anyone who can teach an old / left handed person how to crochet is amazing.  Back to the story, so we arrive for the Sunday Busy Bee, we always start with show and tell.  Sherri pulls out 4 afghans and tells me I get to pick the one I would like to have. They were all so beautiful it was hard to choose.   This is the one I selected.  Isn't is great?!   It big enough to snuggle under with hubby on chilly nights.

UFO Quilt Challenge 2012

I accepted a UFO quilt challenge where we sent in a list of 10 projects. Kathy who is coordinating picks a number from 1 - 10 and everybody works on their project with that number. She picked #6. I have all month to work on it, no requirements to finish just to make progress .

My #6 is a purple flower quilt for grand girl#3 Lilly! This week I had to get 1 yard of white for the sashing in the pattern. Today I cut all the fabrics for the top and I have 3 rows sewn. I am still working on it but need to take a break, so I am posting about it. At the end of today I will post pictures of what I got done.

I did a couple more rows so here is what I have done so far.
