Here is the newest quilt I'm working on. It's a Carpenter's Star I just put on the frame to start working on. Once I have it finished I'll post a full picture. It's going to a gentlemen at church for his help with the ladies dessert.


Here is the first quilt for the FLC Ladies Dessert raffle for 2011. I did not quilt this on the frame but it came out very nice. I'm not sure what I want to do yet for the 2nd raffle quilt. I am torn between Christmas or something you can leave out all year.


What a new experience. I did one small quilt on the frame and unfortunately it's a conglomeration of things freehand. After that I decided to do Jean's quilt on the frame. It's a Day & Night she started for her daughter. I finished up the blocks and quilted it. I wanted to have the swirls and heart vines on the edges so I added those free motion table top after I quilted the middle. I think for my first ever quilt done on a frame it came out quite nice.


Here's the new Grace Start Right frame set up and ready to go. Just need to add the machine and I'm ready to give it a try.

The new quilitng frame has arrived. Here is myself and a couple of friends loading the 9.5 foot, 108# box into my SUV. Tried my practice quilt. I'll load that photo when I get home.


Here is the UFO for June. I think I posted this quilt before but it is now finished and has gone on to it's new mom, Karen. I have 3 more almost ready to go. Will post those as they are finished.

Well wish me luck as I'm starting on a new adventure. I'm going to try my hand at FMQ on a frame instead of using the machine table top. I ordered a new Grace Start Right Frame and Juki 2000 combo. I taught myself to free motion quilt on my table top machine and taught myself a few different stitches so hopefully I can learn this. Jean needs to get busy and get me some tops ready to quilt. I'll let you know how it goes.

By the way quilted 2 tops this week so should have pictures in next few days when I finish the binding.

Here's the other quilt I finally quilted. The picture looks a little green but it's black with a gold imprint and the white is the same fabric. Came out really pretty and I was glad I added the accent red. I'll be using this for my table covering at the annual ladies dessert for our church. I think this and a vase of red roses is all I need for table decorations.


Here are finally some pictures which means I finally finished a quilt or 2. This is the round robin I was doing with the local group. The corset center is mine then once it arrived home I basted, quilted it and added the binding. Can't wait to hang this on my bedroom wall. Or maybe the quilt room wall - who knows for sure.

I was able to get 3 UFO's quilted last week while I was on vacation. One needs the binding still but I'll post the pictures tonight.
