After we got back home, the sweet hubby that he is, got me a nice warm fire going in the fireplace and headed out to work in the cold. I jumped in and straightened up the house and got to work on some quilting! I've had a lot on my mind the past couple of days and I had not been quilting. Nothing bad, actually some good things going on, my mind has just been in a whirlwind! :) So I figured I had better get my butt in gear and get some quilting done! I have some customer quilts that need to be finished before Christmas and a few things of my own too.
I got the big strips cut and sewn together for the Nascar quilt, now I just need to add the long strips to connect them all together! I don't usually make custom quilts for people, just quilt THEIR quilt tops! But I had the lady at the bookstore in Van Lear, Ky ask me if I could make a Dale Jr, #88 quilt for her so that she could give it as a gift for her daughter at Christmas! So I need to get it finished. I hope to get the top completed today and get it quilted within the next few days.
I have one quilt on the frame now, so hopefully it will be quilted and off the frame in a day or so and I can load this one on there. The one I have on the frame now is a king size quilt. It is beautiful! It is ALL hand pieced, I will post a photo of it when I get it finished. That is what I love about quilting for others, I get to see their beautiful work.
I will leave you with this photo of Smokey snoozing yesterday! He really needs a haircut! :)
Almost time to get the boys up for school. I can't wait for them to start their Christmas vacation, I just love when they are home and we can spend some nice quality family time.
