What I Am Working On

It has been a long time again since posting and so I decided to say "I am still here" and show you what I have been doing. I finished quilting a customer quilt for my friend in Texas but don't want to show it until she sees it. Below is a pix of the quilt I am piecing in the mornings before work this last week. The large blocks were meant to be small pieced blocks. I proceeded to cut the pieces wrong so decided just to make the bigger blocks instead. The fabrics are by Fig Tree Quilts and I think they are beautiful any way they are displayed.
Below is one of our Quilting Ministry quilts that I am quilting. The 12 blocks are all embroidered and each are different. Some little one will have a wonderful assortment of bible stories with this quilt. We have our sewing day on Saturday so I am trying hard to get it done so someone can bind it.
I realized when I started to post that this is my 200th one! I can't believe it!! I will have something fun to give-away for this wonderful occasion so stay tuned. What to do, what to do!!

I like coming to your site to see what quilting endeavors you are working on (AND to get more ideas for quilting motivs!!)
I LOVE the simplicity of your pieced quilt; I agree with WhiteStone; what a great way to display some LOVELY fabrics!

Kudos to you for quilting before you go to work in the mornings. If did that I would lose all track of time and be even later for work than I usually am! lol
