Well it is time to do my 6 month post.  I have finished off a few project since I was last here and thought I would share them with you.  

Some of my quilts I had in our quilt show here in our small town.This one is a Christmas quilt, the fabric I bought down in the Black Hills last summer

My Underground Railroad wall hanging, in the upper left corner. The one on the right is my moms wall  hanging.

 This one I made all from scraps. It was fun to make.  I used wool batting and I liked the results.
 This is the one I made for the camper a few years ago but just got the binding on.  It was different doing the scalloped edges.
This baby quilt was made for my good friend that had her first baby.  In each plain block I quilted a different design.  I really liked how it turned out.
 Baseball cap.

 And here is sweet little Max.

Christmas Tree Skirt

To make a great tree skirt using the 10 degree wedge ruler.  First you need three different fabrics.  Cut into strips

A...12 strips...5 1/2 x width  (my red)
B...12 strips...3 1/2 x width  (my green)
C....6  strips...2 1/2 x width  (my black print)

Fabric needed......A...2 yd
                             B...1 3/8 yd
                             C    3/4 yd
                           Backing 3 1/8 yd
                           Batting 54 x 54
                           Binding  5/8 yd

Sew the strips together...will have three of these strip sets.  Offset the strips to bottom...2 inch, 3.5, 2.5, 3.5  
You will also have three of these strip sets.  Offset these by starting with bottom red...3.5inches, 2.5,3.5,2Now it's time to get the ruler out. Put the 45 degree line between the green and the black fabric.  Cut 6 wedges per strip set. So a total of 36 wedges.18 wedges each pileSew the wedges together.  Two at a time and then sew those together so you have four.  Keep going till you have them all together but leave one side open.  Now I just need to find some backing.  Hope this makes sense and you can make one for next year.   Happy New Year.

One of my daughters was looking for some Christmas decorations.  I made these up for her.  I started the runner on Saturday and finished fast and it.  Might have to make up some more of these some day. 
 The snowman were a paper piecing kit I bought years ago...finialy made it up, not my favorite thing to do.  The greatest thing was that I used only fabric that I had in my stash.

New Stash

I had to add these to my stash.  It is the month of love, so had to buy them.    I have always wanted to make a red and white quilt so here is a good start.   Now I need to find a pattern. Any ideas from anyone?

I was quite pleased how this one quilted up with a bunch of swirls.  I got the binding sewn down last night so now on to the hand stitching it down.

Love all the sweets :)

Fall table runner that is also waiting for the binding.  That is tonights project.

This quilt my mom quilted with the longarm and I just love it.  The butterflies are perfect for this summer quilt.

The swirls are fun on the curved border.

Then there's the half butterfly landing on the border.

Mom did a great job quilting this and I can't wait to finish  and use it this summer in the camper :)
