What have you been up to?

I know what I haven't been up to and that has been posting to my blog.  But I have a good excuse.  I have been working and also getting some sewing done.

I have managed to complete 3 quilt tops in the last couple of weeks.  All 3 are now in different stages of completion.

This is an appliqued quilt I started back in October or November of last year.  I finally finished all the applique, got the blocks sewn together and border added.  That is as far as this one got.

I purchased it as a kit a couple of years ago.  Not the kind of quilt kit I would purchase but it was 40% off so I couldn't pass it up.

This one is a quilt that I made from a Canoe Country Jelly Roll by Moda.  I have actually already got it quilted and waiting on the binding.  I am not really crazy about canoes but I have a friend that is planning a canoe inspired bedroom in her new home.  I think this will be a perfect gift for her.

Then there is this one!  My Red, White & Black Log Cabin quilt.  In this photo the quilt is actually upside down but with it being so huge, I didn't take the time to turn it around.  Are you wondering if this one is quilted yet?  Scroll down to find out!

No it isn't quilted yet!  I did finish getting it loaded on my frame this afternoon.  It was a little tricky with the way I did my backing.  After it is finished I will post a photo of the back.  I hope it turns out like I planned!  I did manage to quilt one pass on it but thought I better get dinner ready.  So it will just have to wait until tomorrow.  I am not sure how long this one is going to take.  At some point I will have to take it off the frame and turn it around to be able to complete it.  That should be interesting since I have never done that before and this quilt is HUGE!!!!

I guess that is it for now.  I will try not to wait so long to post next time!

Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along

Konda over at Moose On The Porch Quilts is doing a Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along.  I think this is going to be lots of fun!  Run over to her blog and check it out!  You can click on the logo in my sidebar to get there quickly!

My sister Dawn, left a comment on my previous post about the birthday giveaway.  Here is what she said,"Thanks for a great birthday present! I hope the winners enjoy their new birthday gifts...I hear mine is in the mail. Thanks Rhonda. God Bless!"

Yes, Dawn's gift is in the mail.  It was to be delivered by our Mom last weekend but the weather didn't cooperate.  If you don't get it soon Dawn, then call Mom because she was putting it in the mail.

The prizes from the giveaway were mailed today.  My work schedule has interfered with my other duties!  Why oh why do we have to have jobs? 

Hope you are having a great day!
