WIP WED/Let's BEE Social

Sew Fresh QuiltsWIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

It's been a while...funk again I think. My daughter, Aubrey@ jaqta@blogspot.com (Just a Quilter Trucking Along), is  now on the road with her husband, on their log haul trucking adventure.  Before she left, we did some pretty heavy sewing on a Quick Curve Ruler Double Wedding Ring quilt for my niece and her future husband, who will marry right after Christmas.  It kind of burned me out, and my machine!

I hesitated to take my machine in...figuring it was going to cost a bundle (who knew my undercarriage could have SO MUCH LINT!  Even using Aurifil!), but I took her in, and the guy fixed her right up and I brought her home and started sewing again!

I've joined a group that makes quilts for kids, helps to "justify" my fabric addiction, and gives me inspiration and a purpose with my quilting.  I've finished 2 quilts, and am working on my third!

Here's one that's done: (guess I haven't taken a picture of the other one...for shame!)

Here's the other one that's done:

And here's the one in progress:

Check out my daughters blog~she got to go to Missouri Star Quilt Company for her 21st birthday...said that was way more exciting than being able to go to a bar and drink (but she did, 'cause she can).  Her goal is to check out quilt shops as they truck along, so, a fun quilting travel log!

Fabric Tuesday~WIP Wednesday~Let's BEE Social!

Sew Fresh QuiltsWIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

I've been in a funk, but I'm shaking it off.

My daughter, Aubrey and I, are working on a quilt for a special couple who are getting married in December. We are using Quick Curve Ruler (Sew Kind of Wonderful Quick Curve Ruler) and this quilt is their Metro Rings pattern (modern double wedding ring). They requested blue/grey color scheme, and we used white/white pearl bracelets as the backgroud...her engagement ring is a pearl, so this seemed really appropriate! My daughter Aubrey has been sewing like mad, and I've been helping, but she is really carrying the load on this one. So without further ado, our progress:

And...my daughter Shannon asked me to make her a new pencil holder. She then went to my fabric stash and "went shopping". Here's what we came up with:


Linking up with Fabric Tuesday! Thanks for stopping by, trying to keep on keeping on...
