Have I been quilting......

Yesterday, I was determined to get something finished. As you know, I should be receiving my new toy mid July and the race is on to finish tops. I've got to have quilts to play with! ;o)

So, I headed for my sewing room and did a bit more cleaning, ensuring the dirt wouldn't interfere with my sewing. Once satisfied, I went looking for my pile of " blocks in waiting." Those are the "I've got to piece the blocks to make a top" pile. Keeping the quilt in blocks was easier for me to store than a flimsy. I use the past tense as this will no longer be the case once I have my new longarm! I'm so excited!

Tah dah..... Of course I had to sneak in a bit of the new floor! lol I started this quilt back in October 2007. The pattern is from the McCall Quilting magazine .

As you can see, the quilt is kitty approved! Allow me to introduce Princess Stella. When you meet her, you'll see that her name suits her.

I also worked on the pink and brown quilt, In the Pink, from Buggy Barn. I have the center pieced and have the borders to add on. I'll post a picture once it's at the flimsy stage.

I won't have the opportunity to quilt as much today as I have an appointment with the physio therapist, my sciatic nerve has been acting up. Afterwards I'm off shopping for paint and running some errands. I do need a backing for that quilt! ;o)

Have a great day everyone and thank you so much for stopping by!

This flimsy is also approved by me *LOL* It is beautiful. I hope you will get better, I was reading about these sciatic nerves and it seems to me that it is pretty serious, you have to take care.

That quilt looks so pretty on your beautiful floors you just might have to make it a floor quilt and then dare anyone to step on it.
