Disappearing 9 patch

I did some straight line quilting on the back of this, and quite like how it turned out!

And here is the front.  I LOVE hose this turned out!! I can see why people make many of these quilts!! they are fast and easy, and they also look so interesting!

And this is finish #5 of the year!!!

June goals check in

My June goals check is in late!! This school year has been crazy!! I haven't had much time to myself, and when I have, I have been sewing!! Without further ado, my goals for 2014. . .

1. Post in my blog 7 times a month.  I have been doing this!! maybe I should try 10 times a month, but I know when August and September hit, I might not get that.  But let's try!

2. I had changed this to finish 10 quilts this year.  Well I am on finish #5 (not posted yet) and I have 5 quilts I am currently working on (that I would like to have finished by the end of summer), then I also have two quilt tops done (that needs to be quilted), one other top that is almost done.  So maybe I will push this one to 15 finishes this year!

3. This is the one I need to start on, I have one UFO that is in rows, that I plan on actually making into two quilts.  And I would really like to get a good start on my husbands tee shirt quilt!  so much to do!

Scrappy binding


When I put the binding on my disappearing nine patch I decided to do a scrappy binding, I used purples, blacks and whites.  And then for part of it black thread, and the other white.

Bow ties


Last night at sit n stitch I got the binding on a quilt (woohoo!! finish #4 of the year) but I don't have pictures yesterday.

After I finished that I worked on a paper piecing block (which I need to ship before I post pictures of it!) Then I worked on my bow ties, I sewed them into twosies, and then put them into foursies!!  I am SO excited! I know I am NO where near close to having enough for a full size quilt for me.

I am linking up to Work in Progress Wednesday.
