Today I am sharing pictures of two special quilts that were sent to the Bama Belles by Libby who wanted these to go to the Boys Big Oak Ranch. They are even better in person and already quilted, bound and everything--we will just attach the WTIL labels. I asked Libby if she was going to post pictures on her blog and she replied that she had not planned to and they had already found a new home. We thank her again for her generosity and direct any compliments her way. Aren't these wonderful!?
Because I was waiting for my Hancocks order to be delivered, my t-shirt quilt was put on hold. That's okay though--Friday afternoon I decided to put my time to good use and pulled out one of the pinned quilts in my stack. Finn had sent two tops a month or so back but I knew they were going to the boys and there was no rush when round robins and other quilting intervened. I got an email from one of the Belles who said to save her some handwork for the sew-in. She can have the binding detail and sew the labels on Libby's two quilts.
I finished up the quilting on the Strip Twist last evening (I think that is the right name) with enough time leftover to do zoom lines on the polka dot rail fence with alternating blocks. I'll see if I cannot get these linked up to the pictures she may have shown on her blog before she sent them off to us. Otherwise I'll post the pics once the binding is done.
I need to cut binding for one of the quilts yet and get it attached this afternoon. Only other thing on the sewing schedule would be to add the missing fabric to my cat quilt back so we can possibly pin it at the sew-in. Then it is off to the kitchen as I need to make some food items to cart to the sew-in.
I plan on concentrating on getting the homespun bricks top pieced. We will be working both Monday and Tuesday from about 9-5. If I should manage to get the top finished in one day, I can possibly do 3-D bowties or put some nine patch blocks into some sort of setting for another top. As always there is never any shortage of things to do!
Hope you all are having a good weekend---
