Done! Done! Done! 8-)

Yes! You read it correctly! I am done! It took a heck of a lot longer than it should have, but I am done with the "Anniversary Quilt" for my brother and his wife! FINALLY!! Thumbs up! Woohoo! Doing the happy dance, woohoo, the happy dance! 8-)

Hopefully my bro and s-i-l will be available to come for a BBQ this weekend for me to present the quilt. All I need to do is buy a rod for them to hang it on. I hope they like it! They are avid outdoors people. The next, and FINAL pho
to of this quilt, will be with them receiving it. Then I'll wash my hands of it, in a happy way of course... 8-)

The label...

Yesterday was Crescentwood quilt night, which I ended up staying home
(I hear I missed a good time) feeling bagged... thinking it was just "that" time of month, and then this morning, when taking my meds I realized I took the wrong one the morning before!!! I took my med that I take sometimes to help me sleep... DUH! No wonder I felt bagged all day!!!! How stupid is that!?! Sheesh! 8-( Don't laugh too hard Crescentwooders!!!

Anyway, today was our Wonky Bits quilt day, which I did make it to. Friend Es made a wonderful Blueberry Cheese Cake in celebration of her birthday. As well, J brought a carrot cake in celebration for her birthday, so we were well fed for the day. Can you say sugar-fix? Yum! 8-) BTW J, I took the left over cake home... My kids say thanks! 8-)

First thing we did this morn was give Kn our opinions of the background fabric that she picked out for her Peacemakers Project. Its a beautiful green Batik. $5/yd at Millend Textiles in Fargo... I thinking I hear another trip calling me.... 8-)
We all agreed she picked a great fabric!!! Click on the photo to see her lovely work on her blocks... Kn has been working on these blocks for a few years. A few more blocks and she is well on her way to the finish. 8-)


Kn also had this lovely table-runner to show. She doesn't like it, but we all do!!! 8-)






This is Lp's Batik Turning Twenty Again. She is making this for her daughter to hang in her new house. Beautiful colors Lp!!! Looking good! We helped her sandwich it today... 8-)

This is Jb's sampler. We all did sampler blocks about 3 years ago. She is the second one to have it put together out of 6 to 7 of us... At least I think she is? Great job Jp! I hear another UFO calling me... 8-)



Next we have Cd's Apple Bag. Cd made this bag about 3 years ago. She totes it to our quilt groups most times. I just love this bag! I may need to make one myself! 8-)



And then there is Pg's work of today. She is following a TUTORIAL on 2nd Avenue Studio's blog... The link takes you directly to it, and while you are there take a look at her blog too. 8-)



Lastly, is another photo of some of my stash that is waiting for my attention. If you click on the photo you can see the quilt I want to make with this fabric...

OH! I forgot to mention, I signed up for
Finn's New Years Eve Challenge. Go to her blog here if you are interested, and if you aren't, go check out her blog. She is a very talented lady! 8-)

And there you have it! Another good quilty day! 8-)

I love the Anniversary Quilt. It's fabulous.
I've got the pattern for the other quilt you're going to make but haven't even thought of getting the fabrics for it yet. I love your choice.

Love and hugs Gina xxx
