Whoop! Whoop! My exciting week :)

Hope you are having a happy end of the week and planning a fun fall weekend... Fall is official in just a couple days!  Temperatures a cooling a bit on Florida's east coast and quilting is in full bloom... along with my back yard :)

I finished quilting and sent this quilt to it's owner.  She recieved it Tuesday :)
Here it is in full view :)
And here is a close up of the quilting on it... fairly heavily hand quilted :)

She loves it and is sleeping under it as I write this :)  Yipee!  Whoop!

Wanna know the specifics on this quilt???  Check out this post :)

So what is next???

I started on my "sister quilt" as it has a sister ... me and my bestie Connie made quilt tops together this summer and now I am quilting mine and she is also quilting hers... both by hand :)  Whoop!  She is almost done with her quilting and I just started mine... they both have lots of love being sewn into them... read more on this quilt here.
And finally... I took a little shopping trip to JoAnn's... got me lots of fun colors of hand quilting thread by Coats & Clark... YLI just doesn't have enough color selection and this is my second fave thread ...
I plan to use the lighter blue/teal on this quilt in all the white spots... follow along and see what happens :)

Planning to link this finish up to Confessions of a Fabric Addict here & Richard and Tanya Quilts here  & Sew Many Ways here :)
Hope you have a great weekend...



  1. Very nice quilting and nice quilt. You put a lot of work into it and it shows! Looks great.

  2. Beautiful quilt! I have not attempted hand quilting yet. I guess I am too anxious to see my finished project. Your quilt is lovely! Thanks for sharing it! (I found you via Sew Many Ways link.)
    Enjoy your Creative Day!


Thanks for taking time to comment. Have a blessed day!
