I'VE GOT THE 'QUILTING' BUG!



****
I've got it bad ...really bad!
****


After participating in Dana's Sew-Along
I'm totally hooked on quilting again!
I had gotten away from sewing ...
was doing more knitting!
Now nothing is stopping me!
It's sew, sew, sew!


This is my quilt top from the Sew-Along!
I'm waiting for it to be returned from
the quilters! I'm so glad that I joined
the Sew-Along because I found
Russ and Rhonda at
****
How wonderful to have found them.
They are great to do business with and
they do an absolutely beautiful quilting job!
****
I was so happy with the first quilt I did.
I just finished this...

Darling Daughter is visiting and
said she would like to have a
quilt. So after picking out
her colors ...pink of course with
black and brown.
This is the second Sew-Along
quilt I finished.

It's going to be mailed out the
end of the week to Russ and Rhonda
for quilting! I'm so happy to
have finished two quilts so quickly!

I also want to work on this lovely
little thing! I got fabric over a
year ago to do this! Now I'm anxious
to get it started. It's from Allsorts Blog!


I've got the QUILT BUG really bad!
I've been reading through some
quilter's magazines and books!
I just found these two
books on Jelly Rolls
written by
a mother and daughter team
....Pam & Nicky Lintott.
You can find the books here
Layer-Cake-Jelly-Charm-Quilts


After reading Pam & Nicky's book.
I got these packages!
I could hardly wait to open them.

They contained wonderfully
delicious Jelly Rolls!
The Jelly Rolls consist of
Mary Englebreit's --'Recipe of Friends' & 'Basket of Flowers'
Chloe's Closet -- 'Hello Betty'
Me & My Sister -- 'Oh, Cherry, Oh'



I have sooooo many quilting ideas! I just need to find more time in the day to get them all sewn up!


*****

HAPPY QUILTING! HAPPY SEWING!
JUST PLAIN HAPPY!

How pretty, especially the top quilt. I don't quilt but I recently took up making yoyo's. What fun. Maybe eventually I'll have enough for a coverlet.

Wow!!
Looks like you are really into the quilting. Good for you to have something you really love doing.
Thanks for your sweet comments about my party hats!
Have a fun weekend,

Oh fun!! You know that I love to sew! I've been wanting to make a new quilt and just looking at your pretty quilts and all that fabric makes me wish I had some extra time!!
Happy sewing!

It's in the air! I just learned how to quilt and I'm hooked. I posted my first quilt on my blog here: http://katydiddys.blogspot.com/2009/05/comfort.html

I'm loving your fabric choices!

Quilting can be so addictive can't it! My mum makes hand-stitched quilts and is now working on one that uses a jelly roll.
Love your log cabins!
