My first WIP Wednesday of 2012!

I Did It!

I finished my Vintage-y Rail Fence queen sized quilt. I used several bits of Bunny Hill Designs mixed in with some fabrics I had and others whose names I don't remember (sorry!).

This is a custom order for a FABULOUS gal pal of mine for a gift for one of her equally fabulous gal pals.

Work in progress; the layout process. Too bad these pics don't do the colours justice

These colours are gorgeous; pinks, browns, creams, golds and blues

I FMQ'd in a big swirly pattern, bordered it with a nice print, backed it with a heavyweight cotton, white

And finished it off with caramel coloured binding!

Sewed on my BRAND NEW Janome QDC 4030 which I'm LOVING....this is probably the best quilt I've ever done...straight, even, edged....THANKS, Santa...it's PERFECT!

I've been kinda stalled on a lot of projects; INCLUDING getting really good pics up of all the baby quilts I did for the craft show, and some other pics of the various Christmas projects - little drawstring bags and my all time fav - adult Onesie Pyjamas...oh yeah. Hysterical. So awesome though...totally worth the cost! Stalled cuz I have a Very Painful tooth ...ouchie...yeah it needs a (shudder) root canal but first the meds...whee! Anyway. It's hard to sew with a throbbing molar.

Hopefully more sewing to come cuz I still have ONE MORE quilt to make...then...maybe I'll catch up on some personal UFOS. My scrap bin runneth over; and the Quilt Cave is still a disaster from the Christmas chaos.

Let's see; these are my WIPS:

Clean the Cave
Organize my fabrics & scraps
Purple Queen Quilt - to start
Finish MY rail fence - needs to be fixed and quilted
Take better pics of finished quilts
Sleep!


Have a great week everyone, I hope yours is happy and bright!
