In case you didn’t already know, there are 67 days until Christmas. With that being said, I’m making great progress.
I’ve already started quilting mom’s quilt. Ever since I started making this One Block Wonder, well over a year ago, I planned to quilt it in orange. I’m using the color Pumpkin from Connecting Threads which is no longer available.
However, I’m not doing FMQ. I’m doing wavy lines which I’ve also seen called the Serpentine stitch. Mine is a lazy serpentine. You can see the quilting better from the back of the quilt. I really like it so far. I will do fmq/meandering in the borders.

When mom’s is finished, which should be by the end of this week, I’ll get busy on my kid sis’ quilt. Then I’ll start knocking out the small quilted gifts, I’ve got 3 of 40 done so far.
Lastly, I’ll start quilting Diamonds and Purples. I’m making it a quilt w/o binding AND keeping all the points. I’m trying something I’ve never done before and I’m excited to see how it turns out. It might even turn into a tutorial. Stay tuned!
I spent some time this weekend organizing my stash. I usually get overwhelmed trying to figure out where to sort/file the multicolored prints, but this time…I just did it! I didn’t touch the shelf on the right, but it has batiks, Christmas fabircs, pre-cuts and other miscellaneous stuff.
And since I was taking pics of my stash…I decided to straighten up the lab (that’s what I refer to my sewing room as) to share some pics.
I guess that’s all for now. I’ve got to get back to the lab.
Until next time, Happy Quilting and God Bless!
