Welcome to my world where I try to figure out what I'm going to do next! These days, it is mostly quilting, but you never know what it might be... come find out with me!

So how did I do?

The Finish it Up weekend was a blast!  Huge thanks and kudos to Krista / Poppyprint for a fabulous weekend - the location at Loon Lake is unbelievable - the setting, the food, the people!  Could not have been better!  To get a real good laugh and see some pictures of some of the antics that some got up to, you should check out Kristie's blog - OCD.  Kristie arrived all the way from Winnipeg and was such a hoot to share a table with! Her humor is well balanced with her amazing time management skills and her fabulous quilting  - boy did she get a lot done!

Speaking of getting things done, I did manage to finish off a few projects before starting down the route of making something new.

First up was finishing off this baby quilt
baby zigzag

figure 8s

Then I pulled out this one and finished off the quilting on it.  It feels good to have it done - now I just need to bind it and decide what I'm going to do with it!

Then it was time to break out and do something new - life has been pretty rough at work the last little while - we've just changed computer systems, and for some of us, there have a number of  frustrations.  I figured we needed a way to relieve some of that frustration!
This one was made for a colleague:

and then this one was for my office wall

Next up was finishing the binding on my Kona Modern Quilts challenge - got that one done too, but I'm not happy with the picture, so you'll have to wait for the full reveal on that!  Also no picture, but I did start a new project - but I'll save that one until I'm a little further along with it.

Hope you had a great weekend and got lots done, too!

Linking up to The Needle and Thread Network this week.


Happy quilting!

Your quilting is as inspiring as ever. Nice to have something soft when you hit your head! lol

Lisa said...

Your quilting is amazing! WOW. Love the hit head here too, I might have to make one of those for my office! Ha!

LynCC said...

Haha!! Love the "Hit Head Here" pieces. :D Such lovely quilting on the table runner, and I love the candy ribboning on the zigzag quilt. I may have to try that - might be able to actually handle that, where feathering is still way beyond me. :D
