Still Here

Just finishing a few things.  


One in the machine,



And one in the hoop.  

Only 18 blocks to go, out of 64.  As long as I quilt one block each evening, 
it'll be finished in time for the quilt show next month!

They are beautiful. Hope you get them both quilted in time.

Pam said...

Very Nice!! Both of them, but I'm always especially enchanted with hand quilting. :)

You're in a quilting frenzy! It's a great idea to have one in the machine and one in the hoop. I love how you are quilting your eyelash quilt with the flower design on the red.

Sujata Shah said...

Happy quilting, LeeAnn! I like multiple projects going at once. These are both such stunning quilts! Then again, everything you make is :)

Oh, your pickledish is fabulous! The red is the perfect accent!

Candace said...

These are both beautiful quilts. I love one I can see of the one on the wall too!

Gorgeous hand quilting in black. I'm in-loved with this quilt. Will have to start one soon. I posted the crazy courthouse steps (unfinished)- Hugs

What a win win for you. No matter what you want to do, it's beautiful.

Brenda said...

they're both beautiful -- I like the zig zags, but that eyelash quilt is enchanting as well!

Kim said...

Nothing like a dead line to get yourself if full gear! I see ribbon winner all over these quilts! Is this the zigzag you made at V's?

Happy Sewing and best of luck in the show!

Great idea to have some machine quilting and hand quilting going on at the same time. So rewarding! Love these bright graphic quilts.:)

Glad to see your two works in progress. I have been on the fence about how to quilt one quilt with curves. Wanted to machine quilt QUICK, but couldn't figure out how to do it. Was afraid it would take away. Now I think I will get it ready to "big-stitch" it and get on with the next one, which will be a definite machine project. And THAT is why we need our quilting buddies, to bounce things off of. Thanks!

Paula Hensley Murphy said...

ok, totally awesome, both quilts. How do you like your Bernina, what model is it? Love your hand quilting, too. what batting are you using? So many questions...... love your work!!!!

Barb said...

You can do it! your quilting projects look great. I've decided olympic curling is the best thing to quilt to :)

Marit said...

Absolutely love both of these! I think they look really good together, too... Your plan of one block a night seems to be a very good strategy - need to practice that myself!
; )

Cathy said...

I love both quilts but the one in the hoop really sings to me. Hugs

bloominworkshop said...

Two of my favorites! Cheering you on to the finish.

Terry said...

I'm sure you will finish in time for the quilt show. Somehow the goal always gets us over the finish line.
The use of red in both quilts gives a nice balance to the other quirky and vintage fabrics. Very courageous.

Oh, my goodness...two beautiful quilts at once..u r an inspiration.

pandchintz said...

Now that's multi-tasking!!

smazoochie said...

Hand-quilting looks so cozy -- especially this winter.
Oh! I need to finish my Lightning!
You are the Quilting Queen!

Dolores said...

Having a deadline is always encouraging. I have one question: what batting do you use in your hand quilted quilts.

Caroline Heinrichs said...

Its gorgeous and I agree if you do on block each day, you'll get done really fast! Well done !
