Finally Caught Up!

Hello Everyone,

Well I have been hard at work. I have caught up on my Mystery quilt blocks, Noah's Ark Stitcheries, and have joined Nice People Nice Things. I have also been busy catching up on customer quilts and uploading them to my website

Anyway, let the pics begin. This first one is of the strippy block I had to make for the mystery quilt. Well, not just one block about 20!

This next one is the block that was formed out of those cat faces. You were right, it is a star! Glad Creations is calling it the Weathervane Block. I really like it. But again, I didn't make just 1 it was about 18.

Now I have actually progressed to a layout. Here is a peek at what this baby will look like. Right now they are just laying there unsewn, hopefully one of my cats will not come by and swoop them out of position before I get to them.

Moving right along....now I am caught up on Lynette Anderson's Noah's Ark BOM. Here are my Giraffes.

Here is my Rainbow... I am looking forward to the next one which is due out tomorrow!

Look at the next picture... Colleen at Crazy for Primitive Quilts and Gardens was selling this wonderful fabric bundle of fat quarters and I purchased it from her!! Woo hoo!! I love them and can't wait to use them.

In fact, I just receive the NPNT pattern and I will be using them in this quilt. I saw the fabrics from Colleen and couldn't resist joining this group. She gave me the idea to use them in this. Originally, she wanted to use them for the quilt, but she doesn't use brights.  So since I don't have a problem with brights, you'll be seeing this quilt in a bright and happy colorway!

So anyway folks, that's where I am at right now. I now have to write my monthly newsletter up and send it off.  I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Happy Quilting!

Your Noah's Ark is so cute too. I wish I would have started it along with everyone else.. but just did get to doing it. Can't wait to see how you put them all together.

HI Jackie,
Thanks for coming to visit my blog- I hope that you will come and visit again.
I love the bright fabrics that you have in your bundle - they are so pretty- I can hardly wait to see them made up.

What a terrific profile quilt- it is the same pattern of my newest quilt that I am working on- I am making it in batiks- pink, purple, green and turquoise mostly. It is a bit hard to get enough contrast between the dark and not so dark as I don't have lots of light batiks. I hope that it will still work out great. I will put your blog on my favorite list. ai look forward to coming back to visit your site again.

Regards from a Western Canadian Quilter,
Anna

Love it that mystery quilt!!! The strippy border blocks look fantastic!!

Karen said...

You sure have been busy! The mystery quilt looks wonderful.

Funny what you said about the cats. My sister had her quilt laying on the floor and when she returned, the blocks had been rearranged by two of her cats. Guess they didn't like the layout.

Jackie you are a girl after my own heart. I love to finish blocks and projects. The mystery quilt blocks are coming along so fun.

Mary Lou Weidman said...

Jackie, I just stopped by before I go to bed and how happy the color in that quilt makes me...it reminds me of the Autumn beauty we are starting to see. I had not seen the Noah's ark pattern and once I did a quilt with that theme long ago. It makes me want to do it again. I always wanted to make Mrs. Noah with a broom, can you imagine how busy she must have been? Thank you for the lovely inspiration.
