What I've been up to
California is getting some much needed rain. On and off, with a few snow flurries thrown in :) My youngest realllllly wants the snow to stick and be a foot deep, so he can play and go sledding. lol. I hope we'll have a snowy winter this year. Last winter, we barely got any.
So, I wanted to show you the quilt I made for my Aunt. This was one of my tops that were in the 'need to be quilted' pile. So I got a quilt off the pile and sent a warm hug to my Aunt :)
Here's a close up.. sorry these pictures aren't the greatest.. I kept the quilting easy. Ran two straight lines on the diagonals and did some large, loopy flowers in the flower blocks.
I love Irish chains :) and this one is one of my very favorites. I'm glad my Aunt has it.
I only have three more blocks on my cornerstone quilt to put together :)
But, with the weather turning cold, I decided it was time to get my dd's quilt top quilted up. My new table is awesome when it comes to basting :) No more trying to find a large piece of floor space and then crawling around on the floor... haven't been able to do that for ages due to my hips. So I tried other things. I even taped the pieces to a wall and sandwhiched a few quilts on the wall a time or two.. that was better than crawling on the floor. But... this table is so much better than both those methods.
Another chain type quilt, I just love them.
Here's a close up of those clips that hold the quilt to the table. I got them at byAnnie.com.
They work pretty good.
So after this, I really should get a move on on a few Christmas gifts huh?! Can you believe how close it is!!
Linking up with Lorna.
Have a great day.
