Mosaic Memories

Several years ago, I purchased a kit for Mosaic Memories in Salina. It is one of the projects that I brought to AZ with me. So I have been working on this quilt. Lots of strips to stitch together and then cut. I have about half of the blocks constructed. Just mindless stitching.

Thursday I am going to a class for a quilt block called Anita's Arrowhead. I found the fabric at the quilt festival. Yesterday I made a trip to Quilter's Oasis for some neutral fabric and found the perfect coordinate. Now to get the blocks cut and ready for stitching.

So Many Squares

This is my first finished top for the year. It is called So Many Squares by LaBenne Publications. I found the kit in Paducah a couple of years ago. It certainly is not my color palette but I really liked the look of it. It will be striking when it is finished. Probably a Christmas gift in the near future.

Now for the next project...

10-Minute Table Runner

Yesterday was a fun day. The quilting room is busy on Tuesday and Thursday. Tuesday is a free stitching day, so you can take your machine and work on whatever you want. Thursday is more structured. In the morning, Karen and Louise gave a lecture on quilting from beginning to end. They showed lots of notions and gave people lots of ideas. In the afternoon, I taught the 10-minute table runner. I have seven people signed up but had ten show up during the afternoon. I wish I had taken my camera because there were some beautiful fabrics used for the table runners and placemats. Everyone was so joyous when they finished their projects in a short time. One lady made three of the table runners and another finished her table runner and two placemats. I have been working on a kit I purchased in Paducah two years ago. I have all of the rows sewn and now just need to sew them together. I should have it finished in a day or two and will have a photo.

Sunday Dinner Apron

This is Haley with her Christmas apron. It is the same pattern as Kacie's. I also gave them the "fur" leg warmers that are sitting on the arm of her chair. One of my Bernina stitching friends made them and I thought they were fun for teenagers.
