Another happy delivery!

It was so nice to hand deliver a prayer quilt to one of my co-workers and allow her to 'pick one out' (of the three I brought her, she picked out the one I had planned to give her). She has been diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer that has spread to other areas (lungs/bone) and the quilt she picked had 'breast cancer fabric' in it!
 I named this one, "Cotton Candy Pink"

Some tops are done!

While we've been waiting to have a meeting to see where we stand with quilts that are in stages I've been busy at home.

I have finished putting the plaid blocks together (just need to iron the seams open). I haven't decided what binding to make for it, but it will depend on what we choose for the backing (sometimes it is nice to 'wrap' the backing over to make the binding. Easy, Peasy!

This is the first Framed quilt, "Birch Branches". Hopefully, we'll find a nice backing for it.
Also put together our "Fall Frames" quilt (second framed quilt). I think the blocks need something more around the outer edge. I'll go looking in the plaid boxes for something or see if we have some dark brown/tone on tone colors to frame the whole thing.

Can't wait to see what we have for finished tops from the other ladies.

Delay due to Illness

We're postponing our meeting this month until Feb 11th, due to me (the boss) being a little ache-y on Sunday. I've been working on tops to be finished, but they won't get put together until April.
