Shifting Gears

Ugh, it looks like I'm going to have to shift gears on the little quilt for Bea :( These little blocks are just taking way to long and I'm so crunched for time that I can spend at the sewing machine right now. I think what I am going to do is make a sampler, this way I can cut out a couple of blocks and take them to work to hand sew together. I already have a few ready to go for tonight at work and I'll show pic's in the morning when I get home. I have Grandmother's Flower Garden, a Fan block and a Lemoyne Star ready to go for tonight :) I should be able to get all three done tonight if my client stays asleep .

Swap Quilts :)

Here is the wonderful little mini quilt that I recived in the November Swap Til' You Drop. This one was made by Michelle and I just love it !!

Here is a close up of the other November mini quilt. I adore this one, how much better can you get than orange and black ??

Here they are up on the wall. I had to start on the next wall as I ran out of room on my first quilt wall. I really need to repaint my walls but I don't see that happening anytime soon. Maybe this summer if I don't have to take summer classes. I think I want to redo it in a nice pale blue :)

This is the mini quilt that I made for Michelle. She should be reciving it any day now. I had forgotten to take a pic of the other mini quilt that I made for this month's swap so I will have to wait to snag a picture when it gets posted to the group.
