View From The Dining Room Table

This is what my dining room table looked like over the weekend.

Now on to quilting.

Rocqua Rhythm Sandwich

And now for the Rocqua Rhythm sandwich.  It’s pin basted and ready to quilt.  But there is no time to quilt this weekend since today is my little princess’ 4th birthday, and we have a weekend of birthday festivities.

This quilt is pretty big measuring in at a 65″ square, so I’m guessing it will take me quite some to quilt this one.

Merry & Bright Sandwich

I’ve got my Merry & Bright quilt top and backing sandwiched together and pin basted.  I went to my local quilt shop today and got a cool gold toned (but it’s not shiny or anything like that) thread for the quilting.

Here’s a peak:

Now I just need to find the time to quilt this baby.

It’s Snowing Fabric

Here’s the first of my winter quilts, and it’s a gift for this upcoming holiday season.  The fabric is It’s Snowing by Deb Strain for Moda.  The quilt top and back are pieced, basted, and quilted, and I am now working on hand sewing the binding to the back of the quilt.  Since this is a gift here’s a sneak peak, but I probably won’t post much about the finished quilt until after the quilt is sent to its new home! :)
