Back to Quilting!

I am all caught up on the steps to the Quiltville Mystery and have finished piecing another quilt so it is back to the machine and get the quilting done on a couple of Christmas gifts. The quilt I am working on now is an old, old Jo Morton quilt. I love the colors and will keep this one.
Since I have quit my job of 9 years at the elevator I have alot of time right now. I am looking for other employment but will quilt until I find some. It has been so much fun spending time in the sewing room again, I really have missed it!

Beautiful quilt, and I am so happy for you to have extra time doing what you love. My idea of a vacation is to have a couple weeks off to just quilt, all day long if I want. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas. Blessings! Rhonda

I love the Jo Morton quilts. Glad you are keeping that one. You have a good start on the Bonnie mystery. This is my first one of hers, and I am just going to trust that those strip pieced blocks in step 3 will fit in somehow.

I love this Jo Morton quilt. Do you remember the name of the pattern? I am going to do a Mystery quilt too if she does another one. I have to go check her site out. Your mystery quilt is going to be great!
