My daughters friend (never met him in person but love him like a son) has a birthday this week and I heard he loves halloween. Again this quilt looks much better in person. The digital camera picked up the dots and made it look really busy but it came out great. I hope he loves it. Posted it in the mail today.
I almost posted on facebook before I realized he's a friend on there and would have seen it before the mail arrived. One look and he's know it was his. I took the picture before I added the binding but I used the green from the blocks for the binding as well.
I finally have some done enough for pictures. This is the second one that will be donated to the church for our annual Ladies Dessert. The event is 100% proceeds to the benevolence fund and we raffle off 2 quilts as well. These colors look better in person than in picture.

I can't believe that I seem to be so busy for the first time I am missing committments yet I look back on my blog and it doesn't look like I'm getting any quilts done this year. However on reflection I realized I did finish the 2 for the ladies dessert (one just got binding yesterday so not posted yet), 2 baby quilts, a pink and yellow for my neighbor, the carpenter star for friend at church, the Day and Night for dessert tablecloth and have a number of them started.
Here's half of my new bargello. This one will be going on my bed.

I took a Diamond Jubliee bargello class Saturday. I had forgotten how much work the bargello's are but they are just amazing when they are finished. Here are the colors I'll be using. Once I have the top half put together I'll post a picture. It's made in 2 identical halves and joined top and bottom for the total look. This one I'm not giving away so don't ask.
I feel like I haven't actually finished anything cause there are no pictures here. But after the 2 baby quilts (which I forgot to photograph) I did finish one for the ladies dessert. As soon as the binding is done I will post that one here. However this past week I got one completely finished.
This quilt is going to a soldier in the middle east. I don't know his name yet but hopefully will once it's been delivered. I wish more people would get involved in this. I think every one of our men and women need to be reminded we are thinking of and praying for them.
