Quilty Things

It seems like I have been gone forever, not posting that is. I haven't been gone, just busy with work and quilting, and just doing the normal stuff. Feeling a little blue one day made me think of this little quilt that I needed to finish. I pulled it out of my unfinished stack and finally did just that yesterday afternoon. I then pulled out a quilt that I made at least 6 years ago and decided to finish it too. It is still on the machine, only 3 rows of quilting left to do, so I will finish it up tonight after work. I am now excited and really charged up to finish more between my customer and church quilts!

I love to sit and look and quilt books when I am not quilting in the evening. Here are 2 that I just purchased. I love them both and see quilts made from them in my near future. :D

It is going to be a short work week with having yesterday off for the holiday. I really don't mind that, just more quilting time for me. Have a great week!

Love the vintage look of the blue quilt. Little quilts are so much fun for you can try a new pattern or a colorway and enjoy the process without having to make it queen size! yayyyy!

Cute little quilt. Sometimes those small UFOs are just the thing to energize us.
I bought Scrap-Basket Surprise when I didn't win it in the author's giveaway a few weeks ago. There are a lot of great looking projects in there.

I'm really loving your blue quilt. It looks so antique! And thanks for mentioning my book. I'm going to have to get a copy of Dawn's, too.
