Not a bad week ....considering

This is WHOOP WHOOP Friday
Let's see...what have we been up to...

Last Friday I was not able to post due to the fact
I was on heavy pain pills and laid up in the bed, way off
somewhere in lala land.  Didn't know anything until Monday.
So let me first share the wedding quilt I made
for Brett and Megan.
Finished a few days after the wedding.  They both loved it and
both said they had never received a gift made just for them. Megan said it was perfect
for their house.

Since I was under the weather I didn't get as much done as I hoped.
I did sew the binding on two of my 100QFK quilts.

This one is all finished.  Still need to wash and dry it, but it has made it to the finished pile.

I quilted this one and sewed the binding on.  It is also finished and in the wash and dry pile.

Found a very cute fabric to use as backing and the orange binding really set it off.

I had to take this one off of the frame to quilt Brett and Megan's quilt, so it is loaded back on and I quilted on it last night, almost finished and ran out of bobbin, so I quit and went to bed. 
 I already have the binding ready so it won't take much to finish.
I have 3 more 100QFK tops to quilt and put the binding on and
time is running out.

I have also been working on my oldest son's tax return, you know the one that
was due April 15th and extended to October 15th. 
This time of the year I always know what the date is because my mother
calls me everyday, at least once a day
and says "You do know that today is Oct whatever and your not finished
with the tax return and I bet your sewing". 
I'll get it, always do.
Must just like the thrill of the last minute rush. 
Yeah, right, I'm just slow and find
other things to do.

Tomorrow is sewing day at the Sweat Shop with the Sewing Sister and Sarah
This is a quilt I pieced for the quilt ministry last month, Sarah added the backing and 
quilted it. I forgot to take a picture
but Sarah took one before delivering it to it's owner

Well, I think that's all for my week.
What have you been working on?
See what everyone else has done over at Sarah's linky party


  1. Oh, all are beutiful but the wedding quilt is yummy! The colors are awesome. whoop whoop!

  2. Lots of lovelies. What a flurish for someone under the weather. WHOOP WHOOP

  3. My husband does the same thing to me beginning on April 1st (ok, actually beginning February 1st, but not every day until April....) Annoying, isn't it? Your QFK quilts are beautiful! I especially love the one with the striped sashing - so cool!! See you tomorrow!!

  4. Who can get excited about getting taxes done? Who wouldn't rather be sewing than doing taxes?
    We wait til the last minute too. It's human nature to put off the unpleasant things :)

    Your quilts are all gorgeous. I can't wait to see the one on the frame. It's so pretty!


  5. I'd rather sew than do taxes, too! Great quilts! Hope you are feeling okay now:)
