I was able to piece together the squares today. It was all the quilting i did in between laundry, dishes and bank run. I will be sending it off to the quilter on Monday and who knows when I'll get it back. So, keep your eyes open for the quilted version. I really wanted to keep this one, but i have someone that's begging for it!

Here is a picture of Marcel's Dinosaur Quilt, for preschool! I am very proud of myself, this was a kit i bought in the summer from Fat Quarter Queen, i started it in September for his birthday and i finished it today! (I have been trying to buy fabric and actually make it) Still to put the label on his Dino quilt, don't know if it's going to make it on there :) I have put it on his bed, Kristina will have to wash it. I might just add year on it at another date and time. Next are my snowmen, i have about 1/2 way completed on all 16! I think i might be working on them next weekend, i would love to be done with those! Currently working on quilting the pumpkin rummer top i showed you a week ago! It's about 1/2 done! On my list are 4 Christmas stockings, must be done by the end of November. i can do it!! Post people post!

Check out my apron! It was so much fun, again using what i have in my stash and scraps. This one is for Milly, I'm sending it to her with a couple cook books from a high school fund raiser that i bought. She's the cook in the family... Still working on the pumpkin table runner i am making for her. Pinning on Monday night in class and working on it during the week. Good thing about Fall fabric, colors, & theme it can be displayed Sept-Nov.

Our group included Thada, Laura, Kathy, Carolyn, Eleana, Melissa (Eleana's daughter; not pictured), and me (the older Melissa) ... such fun!!! Did you notice Thada's tiara ... she was Queen for the Day (make that week) !!!

Here is a picture of all my pieces, i am getting ready to put this puppy down on my background. Jan Hubert has loaned me the pattern and now she needs it back, good thing otherwise it might of taken me longer to put together. It is very hard and challenging. She said, it was good for me to get out of my box and challenge myself. Oh, but she doesn't know about Harvest Song! I had planned on working on it this weekend, i guess it might have to wait yet another visit to Big Bear :) I also have to make a couple baby quilts, one for Annamaria's tea baby shower this coming Sunday in San Dimas. I have all week to quilt something, i will put it on my long arm, as i need some practice! Can't wait to assemble this one though.. I'll post a completed wall hanging hopefully by next month! Stay tuned ladies....

Yes, i'm participating in the same swap all over again. I have two swaps actually, one at work (9) and (6) at my Monday night circle of friends table. The (9) ones are actually all the same blocks and the Monday night one has a few different fabrics interchanged, still looks nice. Now i have to make all the other accents for the house, 6 are due in Dec and the others in June 2010. The work is in sewing down the pieces and making sure no raw edge are showing. When i get done, i think i'm going put together one big one and bring it up to Big Bear to hang on my wall in the living room. All together there will be 16 blocks for this quilt.. I will also come up with a different finished look.

Here are the different stage fo the one (1) block that I finished in Stack 'N Wack class on Saturday. The teacher, Earlean Miller, was great and Terri Kirk was there helping all of us also. I really like how my block came out, especially because you'd never guess the fabric could do this. All the other ladies made beautiful blocks ... some as many as three (3) !!!
