Lots Of Quilty Photos!

I have lots of quilty photos to show you tonight!! I have been working on my Summer Pond quilt. I have 9 more blocks cut out, ironed on and ready to applique! Somehow I only ended up with photos of 7 of them. But anyway, I already appliqued two of them tonight. I figure I will work on this quilt until I get tired of doing the applique and then I will move on to something else. Anyway, I really like how this quilt it turning out.








Speaking of quilts!!! I finished my quilt top! It was supposed to be a diagonal nine patch but if you remember in my last post I was telling you that I messed up cutting my stripe fabric so I ended up with this.....


While I had the fabric out for this quilt, I went ahead and cut the binding for it too. Even though it didn't turn out the way it was supposed to I like it and I used around 375 3 1/2 inch squares that I had precut from my scraps! It felt nice to just sit down at the machine with a box of scraps in sew!

Yesterday, Richard did not get to work! The mine didn't have enough coal blasted out from him to haul so they told him that they didn't need him. :( But he used the day off to work on the house. He was putting up the plywood on the front half of the roof as you can see here. Hopefully he can get the rest of it done this weekend.


And last but not least....I will leave you with another weird photo of our cat, Donkey!


Hopefully tomorrow, I will have more quilty photos to show!

Those blocks are so cool. I'm loving seeing those. The quilt top is wonderful. You'll be moving into the new house in no time at all. Looks like it's really moving along.

You are really moving on your applique project. Your scrappy quilt looks awesome too!! I am starting to save my scraps so I can make a scrappy quilt one day.

Very nice Pond blocks! You have been busy :) Your house is really coming along. Bummer that he had to miss work but maybe the roof could be on before more snow! :)
