This is the most recent quilt I have finished for Delphine’s Quilt Shop. I did light custom work on it with curls in the white, pebbles on the frames and spirals on the flowers. The back had an inserted panel. It turned out to be so cute!

2015-08-01 13.17.53 We went to the Detroit St Andrew’s society games and my husband participated in the tug of war. His team won first place!

I was able to get a selfie with the MC of the day Liam the extra large Leprechaun.  I can see it all from the athletic field and I didn’t miss a thing, which I loved. My husband took second!

2015-08-13 08.10.03I am still adding borders to my 6.5 blocks that were left from my Civil War Diary Quilt and Farmers wife. I am going to run out of border fabric before I run out of blocks! I am going to have to come up with projects for the ones that are left!

2015-08-15 13.23.11I ordered these IKEA panels and they came in. I make them into curtains. I  cut them a bit short so I am going to  decide if I want to leave them like this or add some lace or get some rings to hang them on. I love the print and the amount of light. I have several decorating projects to do this fall including setting up the new entertainment center we bought while visiting IKEA a couple of weeks ago.

2015-08-15 17.28.45 And here is my current long arm project. I have had to load it twice. It was too narrow. I swear this quilt top is growing because now the back is only 4 inches longer than the top. I hope it works out otherwise I may be going to the store to buy some muslin for the back!!!  It will have overall feathers on it. I am going to be optimistic that it will work. Wish me luck, I may need it

We have several Highland games left, 2 more in August and then 2 in September. I have lots of quilting planned. I am going to be doing lots of quilting starting in September as I will have more time at home. I have several of my own quilts to do! And guess what I have a couple of UFOs and I am starting Tula Pink’s City quilt blocks. I am having too much fun.

I have decided that I am going to focus on longarming and finishing up UFO’s this year. I have plans to get a self published book in the future but I need a few more really interesting patterns to think up yet! I have also decided that this blog will be my electronic diary as I think that blogging is really out of fashion these days. I am using Instagram for most of my daily posting. It is short and sweet!

As summer winds down, the leaves are starting to change here and school is getting ready to get back into session. Our youngest will be going back to college next weekend…. I feel like a new year is upon me and that is why I am making plans for the next year. I am thinking that I would like to get things wrapped up in unfinished things. Why, well spring is a big decade birthday and I am going to focus more on new things after that I believe. So as in typical new year’s fashion …. out with the old and in with the new!!!
