What am I STILL up to:   

UPDATE: on the Baseball quilts.  Here is what the two for my grandsons will look like, and the tops are both finished (58" x 72").  I added a cream sashing that has stars in it.   I have decided to add a third quilt for a friends young son who played in a Tournament in Cooperstown NY, during the BHOF Induction Ceremony this year.   The second photo is an EQ8 version of the kiddo who played in Cooperstown and the one of the blocks.  None of the boys know they are getting quilts.  But I will make sure the labels state the big tournament they played in.   The 2nd quilt top is almost finished.

Those are all lovely and no doubt be well loved!

Your quilts are really nice and I am sure the boys will be thrilled. 

I took a workshop with J. Michelle Watts on Friday.  It was well done, learned several tips for working with the wedges I wouldn't have known otherwise (always sewing with the same piece on top for example).  It was fun.  Though I just cannot make myself applique using the machine.  I tried a couple of different ways and I just don't like how it looks.  So I'm hand sewing the arcs down.   She is from Roswell though moved to New Braunfels TX a few years ago.  We chatted about missing the mountains and desert skies.


top is done.  It ended up pretty large, just over 60" square.  it's kind of intimidating.  makes your eyes spin a bit.  I think I'm going to do some custom quilting on it but those big blank corners are a bit intimidating.  This one may hang in the closet a while.

Put this little top together yesterday to cut the boredom of the R/W/B baseball fabric. Blocks are 6".  Have enough to probably make maybe two more.  And picked up an XXL 100% cotton plaid shirt at a local thrift store for $2.00. It will mix in nicely in some quilt.  I was lacking in things yellow.


I'm almost finished with the 3rd and final Baseball quilt top. 

Happy Halloween Quilting to All of You.

noticed this quilt on the back on connecting threads catalog, looks pretty fun and easy.  I feel the need to play with some novelties.

and super duper easy to sew block
