Scrap Quilting Club

It's been a while since I have posted.  I wanted to post on Design Wall Mondays for the last two weeks but my home internet service has been down.  It's very frustrating when it doesn't work.  Today we were told the the problem is the connection at the pole and they will send someone out to morrow to fix it.

In the meantime, here are the quilts from Scrap Quilting Club last Saturday. The first photo is my yearlong project.  This will go with the field of trees I posted earlier.  I'm actually two rows behind schedule.  I should have a row of ornaments and a row of tree lights completed by the end of June....will not happen!

Design Wall Monday

I've been quilting a lot lately.  I went on a retreat and got to work on a few projects.  First, this is the round robin I received that I need to add a border by mid July.  I'm still in the "thinking" phase at this point. Trying to decide the type of pieced border I will add.

My goal for the quilt retreat was to work on my Christmas quilt.  I only got 9 blocks made by last Sunday; 6 snow flake blocks, and one each wreath and mittens.  So this past week I made it a goal to stitch on this quilt each day.  I now have 3 of 13 rows completed.  The wreath blocks are 3" finished and there are 16 of  them!  By the end of June I'm supposed to have gingerbread men, ornaments, and Christmas lights blocks added; we'll see.  I have two trips schedule for the month of June and I don't think I'll get much sewing done.  I'm happy though with the progress thus far.

 I went to my friend's house on Saturday to borrow the long arm machine!  I got  two quilt tops quilted.  This one is last year's scrap quilting club's yearlong project.

This one is my drunkard's path string quilt.  I'm so excited to get them both quilted. Now I need to pick binding fabrics and get them off my to-do list.  We'll see if they get completed in the month of June.
