Quilty weekend

This past weekend ended up being quilty by accident. I spent some time Friday night quilting the Bear's Paw while my Mom wrapped Christmas presents. I've got the first quadrant done and have made in-roads on the second.

Then on Sunday, my son took his snowmobile licensing course. The course was 6 hours and an hour and a half drive to and from, so I checked with the instructor, and took a sewing basket with me. I worked on quilting the Magic Tile quilt while my son took the course. I have 4 of the 12 blocks in that one quilted now as well.

Kitty Blue....

I spent a couple hours last night working on the green bear's paw quilt. I almost had a disaster - mom's cat got a hold of some of the batting and started ripping it up before she was chased off.

Good thing I'd quilted the border of this quilt first and the quilting goes right to the edge of the fabric, otherwise I'd have a real mess.

I've got over a quarter of the top done. I figure I'll finish it by the end of the year.

Found it!

It took a while but I found the perfect fabric for the back border of the Parrot quilt. It's perfect - a sort of splotchy blue colour. I just have to get the borders on and basted now. Problem there as I toasted my last good rotary blade on a pin last night.

And the Christmas lights center is finished. I just need to put the borders on and that quilt top is done as well.

It's slow, but it's progress.

And I have 15 of the hand pieced grandmother's flower garden patches done.
