Posting progress

So I posted earlier that I joined a Mystery Quilt online group earlier in the month and so on every friday Heather emails us a clue. I have 3 clues finished now. I am doing 2 quilts on is for charity and the other one will be in the new house when we move in next weekend....

This is the first mystery, the fabric is Terrain by Kate Spain.. I love these colors.

This one is the second mystery and the fabric is hometown by Sweetwater... I really like these colors too... I am going to have a hard time deciding which one is going to goto charity when they are finished.

Back again

Well, I will apologize again for being gone so long, It's been a bit crazy. To start off I have moved from Anchorage down to living in Moose Pass, it's a nice quiet little town, and I am really enjoying life down here. The house I have moved into is a lot smaller but it's just me and the animals all summer so it really is fine and the price is right. The down side is that I don't really have a dedicated room now for quilting, I have my long arm in the living room but it fits perfect there, I am blogging from my iPad right now since there is no Internet connection yet!

I do have to say that now that I am getting settled I have been able to get back into the swing of things and really get some quilting done! Here are some pictures of some of the client quilts that I have finished down here. I am going to try to figure out how to post pics in the blog so you can see what I have been working on. Between work and quilting I have been pretty busy but having fun too!

Happy sewing!
Enjoy the photos!

Sunday Stash Reports Week 1

Ok I am hoping to keep up with this one this year. Judy does a stash report every sunday to keep track and be more aware of the fabric that is coming and going out of our stash, So I decided I would participate this year. So here is my stash report!
Used this Week: 7.30 yards
Used year to Date: 7.30 yards
Added this Week: 0
Added Year to Date: 0
Net Used for 2011: 7.30 yards

Here is where it went!
On Saturday I taught 2 teens how to sew, while I was working on a yellow brick road quilt so they made one along with me, I let them pull the fabric from my stash so this is how I got the numbers up there.
The Quilt Jerry Made, he just needs to finish the side borders

The Quilt Harmony Made, Finished

The Quilt I made

I know its not a very good picture, the colors are so rich and pretty, I will try to get a better pic of it soon.
