Gallery of my noodling for the last month...

Well Julia, you asked for it! This is what I have been up to. I think I'll need to add a seperate post after this to complete the list of quilty things I've been doing. Blogger will only allow so many pictures per post i suppose. The denim quilt is for my son, John. I have made ones for all the boys- except Abe. I have a stash of old jeans just for that purpose. I'm doing a big ole meander on this one and so I hope to finish it, today.



Been playing with some batik and a folded pattern. Made a nice little table runner.

This is another little wallhanging- my second one using the same design, only this one is batik and bright where the other one was very traditional. I think it will be going to my friend Pami.


This is a challenge quilt between Sandy and I. The blocks measure 3 1/2" so the peicing was tiny. Just traditional piecing, not paper. Love the colors and I think it'll go very well in my bedroom. Not sure how I'll quilt it. I even did the applique by hand.



Whew! Is that bright or what? The hearts were leftovers from a small quilt I made while working at the quiltshop. I am going to use this as a backdrop behind my old birdhouses for Valentines.





Redwork by Sandy and then I just threw a lot of colors in with them. It was also a backdrop for birdhouses during the holidays. I am starting a trend in seasonal quilts back there! It only takes a 24" quilt, so it's a simple task.





Doilies I've finished. One is a repeat, in a different color thread. I am putting them aside to use as impromptu gifts.






Here's my holiday quilt that I finished last month. It was a panel which I cut apart and then added the log cabin borders. It is still hanging over my piano. Need to switch it out.






Here's sweet William and a helper getting some drywalling done. Trying to keep that frigid wind out. A tough job here on the prairie!

You are making me feel like a slackard! I have quilted two quilts in the last three days and even got the binding put on both of them.

Hope you are feeling better from your "told". I think it is nap time before the kids get home! Love you and miss you.

You have been so productive! Those folded blocks are so pretty. I've been wanting to do something to hang for Valentines day but can't focus on a design. Something bright like yours!

Wow you have been busy! They are all wonderful, but I"m drooling over those doilies! I still am in awe that people can actually make those!

Don't know which item to comment upon - blocks are luscious, Quilts -- well quilts are always great!, and doilies are amazing, especially as I don't know how to crochet. You've made a LOT of luscious things!

You have been very busy. Good for you. I wish I could say the same. No time for sewing with the baby in tow.
