Kristine said...

Fun! So do you hand bind every quilt?

Clair said...

Instead of sewing, I prepared for the cold weather by going to two different libraries last Saturday and checked out over 50 books. :)

Rene' said...

I would think the cold weather is almost worth it if this is the productivity level ;-)!!! Great pictures of all three quilts and the cute pin cushion. I spy a nice seam ripper there as well!

I can't wait to see what you do with the Christmas tree quilt!

My fetus is zapping all of my afternoon energy lately, so no sewing for me. :(

Your works in progress are a lot more interesting than mine at the moment. (I'm working on a test passage... Hence the procrastination of blog reading.)

Stay warm.

Dolly said...

I'm wild about the trees ! And I can hardly wait to see the bound Scrappy Trip !

Life has intervened and slowed down my 'trip' progress, but I WILL PERSEVERE !

Carie said...

Wow what progress! I love the Christmas trees, they remind me of washi tape.

Jeneta said...

Oooh - love your spotty binding!!

Bee said...

Lots of fun projects! Seeing all of your projects has incited me to pull out a couple of my own:) I love the polka dot binding. The color looks perfect with the quilt. Cant wait to see the finished project.

I was just telling Rachel this week that your whirlygigs are a favorite of mine and here you go showcasing them again! xo

Lisa C said...

When you finish basting don't you think you've won the lottery?! Good job!

Annalia said...

You're getting so much done! (...and that is a cute seam ripper...)

I'm so jealous. I'm painting my basement this week....office, family room, closets, hallway, and ceiling. So rather be sewing!

Vicki lOU said...

It's fun to actually SEE your work and talk to you each week.
I took my machine to the store to check on the settings and the noise related to free motion quilting. I have to go back when the quilt person is there.
I'm enjoying your class immensely!!

Stacy Olson said...

Loving the tree quilt. The color combination is so pretty. Can't wait to see it all finished.

Angie said...

Love those trees!! But they are ALL oh so cute!!

Becky said...

I can't think of anything better to do than work on pretty quilts and other sewing projects. I hope to make some progress on some myself this weekend. Can't wait to see yours completed too!

DebbieS said...

So much progress! Love the trees! I keep trying to finish WIP, but Tula Pink Salt Water is calling to me.

Sarah Watson said...

Christmas tree quilt yaaaay! I love it!

Beth said...

Love those trees! Doesn't it feel good to get the basting done?

cindi said...

hi
wanted to ask a quick question about your free motion quilting. i've read that you use the thread from connecting threads. do you use this for piecing and/or fmq? also, what do you use in the bobbin? love to read your blog and see all your creative uses for scraps.

Michele said...

No, not bad at all and definitely a ton more than I got done.

You can never have too many pincushions. Or quilts.
