I Hope It Is Done

Yes, I thought it was done a couple of months ago but my DS#1 wanted it big enough to fit his queen size bed (with the deep mattresses they have now) so what's a mother to do but please her darling boy. All it lacks is the quilting. This is a two block quilt of my own design using blocks from the Quilters Cache--one is called Winding Blades and the other Soaring Past Time--hence the name Time Travel. DS#1 loves to travel. Strike off one UFO!
Blessings to ya'll,

Finished another one!

Spent the last few days making a concerted effort to complete my Hidden Star Log Cabin and finally got it done.

Now all I have to do is quilt it (along with the 1000 peace quilt) but it can wait a little before I do that.

The pics don't do it justice because I can't get the colours right. The aubergine just doesn't seem to want to come out right but at least you get the general idea.

So another UFO is crossed off the list. Not sure when or what I will start on - I have a machine embroidered quilt on the go and .....yes I know ...... still have the christening gown to get done....rotfl.

The Supper Cloth Lady Strikes Again ......lol.

Yep, finished another one, that leaves just one more supper cloth in the Great UFO Pile. This one is a little larger so could count as a small table cloth I guess. I really like the pattern of this one, in the white on white it looks very elegant.

It was started er, um - let's just say it was started sometime in the previous er 3 years.....lol.

Now if I can just get the remaining one finished I will have two Christmas presents completed way in time for Christmas. (Please don't hold your breathe though).

As well as finishing this I also have completed the quilt top I started when Philip was in the Palliative Care unit. I have made a few starts on it over the last year and a half but just haven't been able to really get into it.

I decided to make a real effort and get it finished. I was going to donate it to the unit but now have decided to donate to the 1000 Cranes for Peace Challenge.

I will quilt it after I finish a log cabin started sometime between the above supper cloth and the just finished quilt top.

I have made inroads on the log cabin one and am a little over half way through it. It is a basic log cabin until the last round when it has plain coloured bits (very technical term) that make stars when the log cabins are joined together.

There are 16 12 1/2" squares in it and I have to think (rotfl) to make sure I do the correct plain shapes in the right places to form the stars. So far so good. Have 5 blocks completed and the remaining blocks completed to the final two rounds.

Monkey Quilt Finished

With my DIL's pregnancy getting close to the end I figured I should get a move on some of the UFO's I started last year. With that in mind I decided to make a concentrated effort and get my Five Little Monkeys quilt finished.
So with no further ado I give you my latest finished, completed, done with and over UFO! Ta Da......rotfl.

I handed it over to her and my son yesterday and both we very happy with it. It looks great in the nursery which has been painted with a soft green and has the theme of Noah's ark. The animals on the ark are in soft colours and have things like lions with mauve manes and giraffe with blue and pink spots so I chose soft colours to match for the patchwork blocks. The furniture in the room is caramel so that's why the number locks have a caramel background.

I have also finished the jelly roll log cabin sort of quilt top I plan to quilt it over the next week so will post a picture when it is done. I also finished another supper cloth (one more to do in the UFO supper cloth pile....lol); just need to put some lace around the edge when I hem it so will post a pic of that when I post the quilt.
