2 Finishes and 3 Starts

My first finishes for 2013.....


I got the binding all sewn down.  This is my first finish....


I hand quilted and hand appliqued the birds on this one.  I really love how it looks hanging on my table quilt stand.  Finish number 2.

I mentioned some of the projects I have been working on.  The first one is the Hatchet Blocks.


I got the blocks all sewn together.  Next step is to sandwich it and machine quilt it.  It is 25" square and will make a nice table quilt.

The second project is....


This is the first block in the Sentimental Stitches Amish BOM.  I have chosen not to do the Amish Black background.  This block is not perfect but not bad for my very first time doing Y seams.

The third project is....


Lori at Humble Quilts quiltalong.  I really love how this is looking.  Right now it is approx. 8 1/2".  We have one more round to go and this adorable doll quilt will be 12" finished and I will have another quilt for my standing quilt hanger.

I have really started 4 projects.  The forth is the Seasonal Applique BOM from Sentimental Stitches.  I just started the first block and there isn't much to show.

In a previous post I told you about an app that I got called "Fitness Pal".  I have chosen Tuesday's as weigh in day.  3 weeks into my diet I have continued to loose 2 lbs. a week for a total of 6 lbs.  I just hope I can keep it up.


Yesterday we took Sammie in to be neutered, micro chipped, nails cut and booster shot.  She had a rough night....I didn't get much sleep either.  She decided she wanted a day on the couch.  She is not too steady on her legs today.  The Vet said not to let her be too active for 14 days.   I can do that today but once she is feeling better that will be hard.

Well I hope you enjoyed viewing my latest finishes and starts.  Be sure to come back soon.

BTW....Quiltmaker Magazine has just announced the 2013 Scrap Squad.  The new group consists of 8 quilters.  I can't wait to see their interpretations of quilts chosen.

Hugs, Cathy

Poor Sammie! Is that a sad face or what? Hope she's feeling better soon... she'll know when she's up for running around...

Congratulation on your finishes... all lovely! And a Lemoyne star! That's fantastic...

Congrats on your finishes! Very cute little quilts. Love the fabrics you chose for the humble quilts quiltalong. Sammie looks cute all bundled up in that quilt. Nothing like having a dog around!
