Wow! It's been a long time since I posted anything.  I guess I'll start where I left off and finish with my latest project.

I finished the top to my Swoon quilt.  I've been trying to decide what type of top stitching to do on it.  In the meantime, it sits waiting.  
 I created this quilt with the leftovers that I had from the swoon quilt.  It also needs to be top stitched.  I've got to put my long-arm to use here in the next couple of days!

I also completed and shipped a few other quilts.

This one I completed for a dear friend in my home town for all of the work she's done in trying to save my childhood home from destruction.  She has it sitting in her living room.

The picture above was a Quilt of Valor quilt that I top stitched for a girl in Michigan so that she could ship it off to a soldier. The one below I top stitched for a local soldier.  There is supposed to be a presentation ceremony.  I'd love to be a part of it. :)

A friend at work was expecting his 2nd child and I got busy and created this one myself.  I figured out which size blocks I needed and designed it around the fabric that I had available.  There are a couple of different fabric lines in this, some of it so old that I forgot I had it.  They actually went really well together and I thought that it was rather cute.  I'm hoping to put together a tutorial on my blog.

I've made some progress on my quilt along.  I think I only have about two to catch up on and then I have to wait to see what's next.  I need to visit the blog again to make sure I'm not really behind.  I don't plan on completing 12 blocks as are on the blog since I'm only making a baby quilt of this one.

I finished the last 3 blocks of the 2011 quilt along.  Now to figure out how to put them together.  This was a mystery designed by Sandy Gervais.  Her web address is www.piecesfrommyheart.net.  I'll have to visit it quick to see how the blocks are set together.

A couple more Farmer's Wife Quilt blocks.

A baby quilt for Luca.  Shhhhh...he hasn't seen it yet.

My latest top finished.  My first T-Shirt quilt.  It was fun putting this together.  Now, what to do with it?  I think maybe we'll auction it off at work after I let it hang in my office all year.

The two pictures below are of the blocks I've completed with a Craftsy class that I joined up with for free.  Gotta love free.  I'm a couple blocks behind and now that I look at my pictures, I can see one of them needs to be fixed. Yikes!

I joined the Granny Square Quilt along put up by Bee in My Bonnet off of her blog.  I've been waiting to start this block and finally have a reason to start.  It was something that I haven't done before and will definitely continue to do until I finish a quilt.  I'm using the Hometown fabric line that I got about a year ago as a grab bag of 2-1/2" strips.  I love it!
