Christmas in July???

Here's my newest project... not intended to be Christmasy, it seems to have turned out that way.  "Why are you making a Christmas quilt?"  the family keeps asking. 

Like most of my projects, it started out as one thing, and morphed into another.  I'm going to call it Christmas is Coming, Tra La Tra La;  my mom always sang that little ditty to us as kids when she had something mysterious going on during the Christmas season, I'll probably put the title in the back of the quilt.  Have I mentioned lately, flying geese are my favs???

Reily Quilt Finish

Well, it's been so long since I posted, I had to think about my password... but I guess it's just like a bicycle...

I finished up the Reily Quilt a couple of weeks ago and it has moved on to it's new home in Oregon.
I free motion quilted with stars and swirls and bound in yellow polka dots on a blue background.  The binding really had that shazam factor going. 



Sideways, you get the idea though.

I have a new project started and new fabric to share, back soon!
