Hi friends!
These are the blocks that i have made for Mark's quilt.
I have two rows with enough blocks. I need about as many as i have made!!!
This makes row three, I am thinking small yellow  strips between each block.
This is what i have bought over the summer for Chris's and and Amy's quilt. All batiks!
Thinking a log cabin, dark's and light's.

Addie's Quilt

Hi friends!
Finally a finish!
Its a queen sized quilt!
Two pillow shams to match.
Addie will be 17 i think in early Jan, i hope to get Jarrod's done and Allison's to by their birthday in early Jan.  But they are close so i can deliver them where Addie is 2 1/2 hours away. So i will give her's to her Thanksgiving.
So i really haven't started my Christmas sewing started yet.  The light's i rounded up will be for a Christmas quilt.
And Jarrod's i need to get a solid for , Maybe next week.
I have worked on this for a while!
Hoping to finish Tatum's over the weekend. All i like is to finish binding.

Mark's Quilt

Hi friends!
Two more blocks for Mark's quilt.
Finished Tatum's quilting.
Had just enough rose to do the binding and i trimmed.
Hand-stitched it down for a few minutes last night.
Didn't get much done to it.
I was wore out last night for some reason, why i don't know.
We put plastic over some windows yesterday and i moved my plants inside so they want freeze! They say we might get one next Monday. I have had those plants for years.
Watched the Trion  football game last night, it was played Friday night so a rerun.
Hagen did great , just can't help thinking that if Noah was playing too we would be headed for state. They have played together for years.

This and That

Hi friends!
Tatum's pillow sham!
I finished it yesterday and quilted a little on her quilt.
My brother is really good with twins sized quilts but i have quilted king size on it . It does great with them to but a whole lot of moving of the quilt is involved.
One more block on Marks, not squared up. They are finishing at 13 1/2 inch's. I think i counted 12 blocks made so far.
I did get some battening and backing for a quilt yesterday so now i can finish one i started earlier.
Lose battening at Walmart for a king sized quilt was 29.00$ that will be the last time i do that.
I had ordered some from them for three quilts and it was just 37.00! Guess i will order some more.
I used that on Tatum's and Addie's quilts and those six wheelchair quilts. Also a table runner!
Working hard to day again!

Addie's Quilt

Hi friends!
Got Addie's quilt to the couch.
That binding looks black and them in different lighting it looks brown! But since it's half way sewed down it will stay.
Got this one  ironed and to the quilting machine.
Got this many blocks done to Mark's quilt.
I worked all day Sat. but yesterday we went to Church and dropped by the funeral home because my great-niece died. To young because of cigarettes. She and her sisters started smoking before the warnings!
Today has been one year since we lost Brad and his family!
I miss them every day! Still expect to see them pull up because he came over a lot.
Have a god one

Mark's Quilt

Hi friends!
We just took it easy yesterday! I sewed a little . This block had part of it a little off so i remade that part.
Made these three to go with it.
Used the fabric i got from Quilted Twins.
These five fat quarters bundles were each 5.50. That is a good price!
So i got one red and one yellow to use in Mark's quilt. The blue is for Jarrod's quilt.
The Christmas is for me!
I plan to place another order in a few weeks.
The yardage of blue was 3.99 a yard.
Can't beat those prices.
Plus they sent me a fat eight of a sample.
I wonder if they sale batiks?
I will have to check that out.
Have a good weekend

Some of the family came over to see him because they have to work Wed.
So i may blog tomorrow but i want Wed.
We have a great time together for our family reunion.
Look at the pretty layer cake i ordered from Missouri Star. All the fabric's are great!
You know some times you will buy one and two or three are pretty and the rest is blah!
This is full of beautiful fabric.
It's Robert Kaufman.
Now just have to decide what to make with it.

Mushrooms and a topper

Hi friends!
This is what i was working on! Just love this fabric so made a simple table runner out of it.
See! Just love Christmas scenes.
I used a gold and cream piece for the binding so it wouldn't take away from the scene.
We have these all over our  yard!
Back and front! I though they were from to much rain but we didn't get any for a few weeks and then it rained , just 2 inch's, and these popped up every where.
