back in the swing of things

Well hello.
 It's been a while, I wish the reason was because I've been busy. 
To be honest that's not the reason, guess you could say I've just been lazy.
gave me the push I needed to get off the couch and
get back to quilting.
She asked me if I had time to quilt a large quilt for the quilt ministry.
I only want to give a sneek peek because
I'm not finished yet and Sarah has not seen it.
I don't know who pieced the top but it
is beautiful!

I have had fun quilting this one.  One reason I'm sharing the little peeks
is to show I have been busy this week and I have been quilting, but also to share that I
actully used a few "tools" on this quilt.
I bought this ruler when I first bought my machine and had never used it.
It came in real handy..

see how it fit perfect around all
 of the points.  I bought this little ruler from the HandiQuilter.
Worked out great for the borders also.  I'll share those when I finish.
Well I need to get this one finished up, it already has a new home waiting for it.

What have you been working on this week?

Check out Whoop Whoop Friday over at Sarah's
