This has been the year for Hand Quilted projects for me. As you know I finished TWQ!!!! Yeah!! Then a hand quilted quilt for Granson #1. Another Yeah!!! And.......Hand Quilted project #3 - a quilt for Granson #2 and guess what!! It was done a month early! I had it finished for the baby shower on July 20 and he's not due until August 23!! That's a miracle!! And here it is!
The Gift Table at the Shower
Since then, I've been working on the BOMs in which I'm participating.

Where Poppies Grow
First 5 finished. Number six in progress, Fabrics chosen for 7, #8 will be posted on Sunday.
Threads of Memory
Totally caught up - Block #7
All seven blocks setting in progress.
Sometimes when I look at it, I think the gold and the honey kind of clash,
But both colors are in the border fabric (which isn't in the photo), so I think it will pull it all together.
I finished a UFO!!! Remember Randy's SAL - Barrister's Blocks (I think we did it in 2012- correct me if I'm wrong).. I followed along very well until the last few blocks. Then other things/quilts took precedence and the blocks got put in box up on a shelf. After I finished Tygh's quilt, I cleaned up and reorganized my sewing room, fabric, etc and decided to finish up the flimsy. I had 62 blocks finished, so stitched up one more for a 7 x 9 setting. Then added the sashing, cornerstones and borders. I call it
"Stained Glass Sampler"
(any suggestions on a better name?)
Gracen's eyes lit up and she clapped when she saw this! I have no plans to quilt it right now, so it will go in my flimsy pile. Maybe Gracen will choose it someday for me to quilt!
Speaking of Gracen - here's a couple of photos of our little sweet girl!
In the garden
Riding - one of her favorite things to do!
With Cousin Asa!
I do have one more little finish. I hadn't done any FMQ for a couple of months, so "practiced" on a small quilt. The colors reminded me of my red geraniums, so I did a little photo shoot in the garden.
Hope this finds each of you having a wonderful summer!
