Table Runner is Finished

The Cobbled Court Quilt Circle just had a table runner swap. I posted a pic of the wonderful table runner I got from Sandra S. and finally am posting the table runner I made for Connie. She said she liked Mary Englebrecht style. I hope I got this right!
It is straighter than the edges appear...the grass was a little clumpy underneath it. I've been doing a lot of handsewing, also, but nothing to show there. Have some running around to do today and then hope to get into the sewing room. Just not sure what I am going to be working on. I have resisted the urge to start the new Bonnie Hunter mystery so far. I think I am going to wait until the reveal as I wasn't too crazy about the last one. I might do some more sewing on the Rectangle Wrangle..or maybe piece some backings together to get some more quilts finished up. Ah...endless choices!!!! Hope you all had a great holiday weekend!!

Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks magazine vol. 5 quilt

Oh, I forgot! About a month ago, I received back my quilt that I made for Quiltmaker's 100 blocks magazine, vol 5. This quilt was made from one of the patterns in the magazine and was featured along with others in that magazine. It then hung in the office at the magazine until September and then made it's way back home.
You can tell I took this picture last February before I mailed it in! snow yet this year!! This quilt will make it's way to House of Mercy to be loved there.

Table Runner Swap

This is the beautiful table runner I received from Sandra S. in the Cobbled Court Quilt Circle swap. She really knows me and this is just PERFECT for my house!!! She also sent me a candle topper but I still have to get a pic of that. Thanks so very much, Sandra!!!!! This is my finished Christmas Quiltalong quilt:
The colors are more true in the close up pic. Sigh..that is what I hate about it getting dark out so much earlier...bad lighting to take pics! lol I love how this one turned out and it will be a great addition to my donations to House of Mercy. Thanks, Sue, for a great pattern!!! Soon I will be able to post a pic of the table runner I made for the recipient hasn't gotten it yet...and another finish, hopefully!!!

Be Still My Heart!!

Look at the gorgeous quilt I just received:
I will try to take a pic when the light is better outside, but this will do for now. This was made for me by my Cobbled Court Quilt Circle sisters for my recovery from my heart attack!!! I don't know HOW they pulled this over on me...I heard some were working on their blocks at the retreat we were at together!!! For once I was speechless..and had tears in my eyes. I don't know if these ladies know how much they mean to me..and what this gift means. Words can't express my thanks fully. But each and every one of you angels!!!

I'm a winner and it's the Thursday Night Quilt League!

I won this wonderful pin cushion from Elizabeth over at Sand and Sunshine!!
Thanks so much!!! I just LOVE it!!! Tonight is the first night of the Thursday Night Quilt League. That would be me sewing lol. I figure my hub gets every Tuesday to go off golfing, so Thursday is my night where I am here...but NOT here! I made a lot of progress on things this past weekend, so I will be working on these same projects tonight. I made the base of a table topper for a CCQC swap...the applique will be tonight:
I also made 35 blocks for my Rectangle Wrangle...53 more to go..will be working on these also tonight:
I got a lot of tiny 9 patches made while making those blocks as my leaders and enders:
I got them added to my leaders and enders quilt:
So, that's the progress up to today and hopefully will make some good progress tonight. Stay warm!!
