this is from a mystery class I went to before my favourite LQS closed-Shirley H. taught it and it was a fun class, and a great looking quilt-I is my first attempt at setting on point, and I had some fun.  It is on the long arm now, so when it's finished, I will post another, but in the meantime, I hope you enjoy this glimpse!!!!

proof I have been working (a little)

okay, it's been awhile, which doesn't really mean I haven't been quilting, although I could have been quilting a lot more (if it wasn't for that darned Farmville!!) here's one of my recent almost-finishes, I need to piece the back and get it on the long arm. It will be going to Baja to decorate the living room wall. The pattern is real fun, even though I ended up making it backwards, which caused much mental stress-and the colours in real life actually look much better!

new quilt finish-this one was finished while I was listening to Jimmy Buffett so it is named "distantly in love":

this I pieced right before christmas 2009, it is Sandy's (my SIL) christmas present I finally finished quilting it and wanted to show it at guild last month, so she finally got it yesterday!
It was a fun quilt, just large 10" squares from Keepsake Quilting, set in a brick pattern, and quilted with a bunch of different stitches from my Viking Diamond. the quilt is neat in itself, there are a lot of metallics in it, thus the name. all that glitters!:
now, on to more half-finished projects!!!!

need to quilt!!!

unfortunately we are still in Baja working on the new house and haven't been quilting much-and I really want to!!!!!! I started to put a couple things together-finished the front of an apron for the quilt guild quilt show and finish cutting some diamonds to finish up a charity quilt, then got tired and had to have a little lie-down. Hopefully I can get some work done today-it has cooled off to the mid 80s, and the kids (kitties) are a little easier to handle when it's not so hot!!!!
anyway, off to attack the laundry first and then a run for some breakkie! Hope you all are getting some quilting in!!!!!
