socks and penguins

Instead of loading that quilt on the frame I started knitting a pair of socks. And to procrastinate on the quilt even further I cut out a penguin from wool. I went to Joann's on saturday to pick up some blades and a new rotary cutter. While there I spotted this penguin wall hanging. My cousin's wife is crazy about penguins so I thought it would make a cute gift for her.

next quilting project

I'm going to put this thimbleberries quilt on the frame next. I was thinking I would do baptist fans on it.

That's Cally checking it out.

Fiona and buddies

This is my nolting funquilter who I named Fiona after Shrek's wife. Kermit and Beaker keep her company and give me moral This is a flannel quilt called Double Duty, a Miss Rosie pattern. I'm making this one for my son Luke. All the blocks are made...just have to put them together.

Judy L. challenged us to make a comfort quilt or two this month. These are my strip twist block that I got from Bonnie's website. I'm hoping to get two quilts made.

my first machine quilted project

This is the first project I've completed on my midarm quilter. I wasn't unhappy with my first result.

I got some good shots of my babies today. I take such lousy pictures. They were at the door trying to get at a bird that was hanging on the gutter.
