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!
