Number 7....

The last Christmas Snuggle (number 7) has been started.  I'm using my favorite Go die.  (The  Tumbler) and had originally thought I would lay the pieces out like I always do .... all mixed up.

And I did.
But then I thought "What if"??  Soooo I started rearranging the tumblers and quickly had this layout.
What do you call these shapes?
My brain sees a martini shaker (block #1) and the other one looks like an hourglass.  ;o)
Well ... whatever they're called I love this layout!!

I'll be adding a ½" strip of Kona White to separate the tumblers.
And I have the border figured out too.
Of course that could change any day now ..... but for now I'll be adding more tumblers to get this the length I want.

And....I'll be linking over to Judy's Design Wall Monday (yeah I know yesterday was Monday)....

I hope you're having a great day. Glad you stopped by.....Linda

Bindings....

I've had these Christmas snuggle tops finished for awhile now so it was time to start getting some of the bindings done.   On the snuggle quilts I make I finish all of their bindings now by machine.  Considering the wear and tear and washings they go through I've found they hold up better than hand sewing the binding.    And besides .... it's faster.  
These three are finished....



One more quilt still at the quilters and another top ready to go to them.  I still have one more to make (or possibly two).
Stay tuned.  ;o)
I hope you're having a great day.

Table Topper...


After I had made the Halloween placemats and runner for our guild auction I had a lot of the fabric and scraps left over.


So the other day I started playing with some of the leftover blocks and came up with this.

Aren't those skeletons cute?
I had just enough of this fabric left so I could cut them lengthwise without having to piece them.  I'm still thinking about what I want to make to use the rest of this fabric.   I do know I'll be making some coasters but they certainly won't use up much fabric.


<<<This is the final table topper.  Size 39"x39".  Just the right size for my dining table.

I'm heading over to Judy's Design Wall Monday.
Let's go see what wonderful things have been made.

I hope you're having a great day. Glad you stopped by.....Linda

Hexie Update.....

I haven't worked much on my hexies lately trying to finish other projects.  But I do have two more 'blocks' to show.
  Goodness!!  I really need to clean off the strings on my design wall.  lol  Please act like you don't see them.  ;o)

   
I hope you're having a great day.

Quilt Auction....

 Our Quilt Guild Auction is now history.   Our members had some very nice items to sell.   Even though the attendance was down our Treasurer thinks we still made our goal in sales.  A lot of work by a lot of dedicated quilters!

I hope you're having a great day.
