Catching Up!

Once again, I have been wayyyy behind in my blogging work. So in attempt to correct that ( thanks for the nudge Mary Elizabeth!), here is an update since ..... Okay awhile ago.

From the most recent, flannel "Trail's End", a pattern from Candlelite Quilts 

 To the finally finished in August, my 2015 ish Block of the Month for my guild ( a very large quilt!)

And everything in between...

An older Thimbleberries pattern, finally quilted

A Tablerunner from a guild workshop many years ago ( with I think, Deb Tucker of Studio 180)
Finally quilted but still needing a binding applied.

Three blocks from Pat Sloan's latest offering, "Merry and Bright"

My Ghost quilt made as part of the Quilt-a-long from Then Came June, an Instagram activity. Since it is still awaiting quilting, it will probably be finished in 2019.

My version of "Wish Upon A Star" an Eleanor Burns Signature pattern. It is now completed!

My "Labyrinth Walk" quilt without its final borders (this picture was from mid Ocober and, sadly, it still is without its final borders!

Christmas Wreath wallhanging without its bow...

"Dessert Time" a pattern from the Quilt In A Day company, used a collection of red and green fat quarters and was not intended to be a holiday, red and green quilt! 

"Milky Way" a Quilt In A Day pattern, uses three fabrics in this version.

My almost completed version of "Flying Kite Quilt", an Eleanor Burns Signature Pattern is shown here.  This quilt is now only waiting for the binding!

"Patty Cake Quilt", a Quilt In A Day pattern, was completed towards the end of September. It is made from a layer cake and the picture below shows a closer look of the border fabric.

"Romance Rose" table runner, the first piece I quilted on my new Babylock Coronet.
This machine came to live with me at the beginning of September and has opened up a whole new world of machine quilting for me.  I am able to comfortably quilt my table runners and smaller pieces.
The larger ones are still going to my favorites the long arm quilter.  But this machine has made me smile!

I think I have just about caught you up on my quilty world from the past few months.
There has been lots of quilt binding that happened on the deck. Those images are immortalized on Instagram under the hashtag #quiltbindingonthedeck

It is now too cold to sit outside and continue that favorite activity. But I was able to get a few stitches in the other day when we had a very brief warm up.

But with temperatures not rising above freezing today, I really think that Monday's chance to quilt a bit on the deck was the last chance for 2018.

So on to inside quilt bindings now...

Louise, on the island, contemplating my winter quilt binding hashtag....

PS. 24 days until 2019 begins. I wonder how many more blog postings I will get in this year!
