Finished One Top

I finished the first AmHero's top this afternoon. I have a second one that should be done tomorrow then this week I can get them quilted. The sooner the better as they're very much needed right now. Sue Nebeker is asking for any help with long arm quilting and quilts asap. So if you can help be sure to contact her.

backing on the quilt

whooohooo got the quilt finished. I used some of the treatment for thread? It really worked, it stopped the thread from breaking and I was able to finish it up. This is the back. Wild huh? lol too much fun!

Almost done Quilting

This is a quilt that I started so many years ago I don't even want to count them! lol I finally found some backing for it and started quilting it. Unfortunatley it was one of the first I ever made so it has some rather bulky corners in the sewing:( So each time I hit one of those spots the thread breaks. I'm trying to quilt around those corners, but now and then I hit one and I start all over. So this is definitely a challenge in patience. lol

Went Up To My Sister Sonja's Yesterday

In spite of a rotten cold and feeling like I'd been hit by a Mac Truck we went up to my sister's house yesterday. She and I played most of the day but then we got down to business and worked on this AmHero's quilt. The white blocks you see are only a few of the thirteen Signature blocks that will go in the quilt. Sonja named the quilt "Thirteen Stars and Stripes" for the thirteen signatures. I think it's going to come out pretty nice. It will have about a three inch border around it when done. You can tell I'm feeling great today, I've been up since four (couldn't breath laying down) and I'm out in the living room and now posting this! lol Oh well, the cold get's a little better every day. I'm sure glad we went up though.

OH!! The Stitch Regulator came home yesterday for my quilting machine! So as soon as I'm up to it I can connect that back up and I'll be set to go on my quilting machine/frame...once again!!! lol yaaaaaay!
