A Few Finishes

Wow, the days fly by for me!! I'm mostly making this post to let you, my faithful followers and dear friends, know that I will draw a winner on Monday for the Indigo, Pewter & Honey FQs. So, stay tuned. Plus, if you haven't entered, just go here and leave a comment.

But, I do have couple of photos of projects in progress.

Remember Pam had a cute little SAL "Forget-Me-Not". Well, I finished the flimsy, and it turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself - "self, this is pretty cute!!"

I've never done a "leader/ender" project before, though I always chain piece everything I'm working on! But I have a "REAL leader/ender" one now!  Christmas FG - they measure about 2 1/4 x 4/12 and I'm going to make a strippy bed size quilt. (I need about 420, and I have about 120 finished!)

Last but not least for this post. Janet O. sent me (she is such a sweetie!!) 4 pieces of solid purple fabrics for Randy's SAL!! So, needless to say, I was "glad" that I was behind, because I got to use them for the last 3 blocks! Aren't the purples just gorgeous!! Thanks, Janet, a perfect addition to my solids!!

Hope each of you are having a wonderful Saturday. It is very cool and misty here! Yeah!!

Blessings Ya'll!!!!

I love your little "Forget-Me-Not". It is very cute, as you told yourself. : )
Oh, that is an ambitious FG project. I love the look of them, but don't love making them. I admire your tenacity.
Oh, the purple blocks are lovely! So glad you could use those purple pieces.
Enjoy your cool weather. Isn't it refreshing?

I just love 'Forget me not'.....very sweet! And I had that same project in mind for my next leader/ender....a flying geese stripey quilt! Too funny! Mine is just scrappy, though, not xmas colors. Can't wait to see your progress! And don't you just love leader/enders......I can't sew a seam now with one! It just feels wrong! lol

Your Forget me not is just darling! Wow...really love seeing those "snippet" pictures of your other 2 projects as well. 420 sections is a LOT of piecework for your Christmas FG. I'm sure it will turn out just stunnning!

Michelle said...

That's a lot of flying geese....and your forget me not quilt top is lovely too ( it has pink in it )

Maureen said...

Oh, yes, your little SAL is cute, cute, CUTE!
Can't wait to see your Christmas flying geese. What method do you use to make them?
We are in for a cool, rainy Sunday here. A perfect day for stitching!

The forget-me-not is definitely very cute, I'm not surprised you are so happy with it. Are you enjoying having a leader and ender project? I cant sew without one these days - the number of times I hold myself up on something while I organise a leader and ender isn't funny!! Great use of the purple fabrics!

Your Forget-Me-Not Sampler flimsy is wonderful - very sweet and I am smitten with your FG leader enders. I have a dear friend who made a similar FG quilt and it is lovely. What is your favorite method of piecing them? You made darling blocks with the fabric Janet sent you!
