Did I do That???

On Monday I went the Quest Quilt Guild here in North Little Rock, AR. I met Linda Poole for the first time. I have known her forever but we've never met in person. She gave a nice presentation and her trunk show was soooooo neat! I loved seeing the other Fairy Quilts.

I didn't realize how busy I've been until I went to load all the photos today! I have been playing with the layout of the fan blades for the House Medallion quilt:
Here is a stack of these fan blocks, ready for the fan blades to be sewn together. There are 28 blocks/fans to be made. I need to finish the Dragon Quilt so I can use the Juki for piecing these together.

Next to the Pfaff are the last two alphabet blocks for the U is for Unicorn quilt, waiting to be done. Then there are several filler blocks and the applique work for the border blocks left. I ordered more red material today, to make sashing for these blocks too.
The Altoids box in the photo has a magnetic business card in it. I put pins in there and the magnet holds them in place better than a pin cushion, when working in the family room with the cat's 'helping' me. :)

I have the sky done on the Dragon Quilt. The clouds puffed up so nicely!

I have almost got the landscaping quilted on it now. There is sits next to the Juki, waiting for me to finish it today.
Finally my Post Spooky for today is the mess on the dining room table. Those are all the Halloween decorations that I need to put up this weekend. Of course I will finish quilting that Dragon Quilt first!

I also cleaned up my cutting table and put stuff away. I can't believe I let it get so messy. No, wait, I CAN believe it! After all, I AM a quilter. lol The hexagon quilt top is so very close to being done. Today I ordered the batting and backing for it. I will be quilting it by hand. I hope to finish it sometime next year. Hubby asked me to not set up the frame for hand quilting until after the holidays. I would have to agree. A king size quilt on a hand quilting frame WOULD take up a LOT of room!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. We have sunshine and hubby will be planting the fifty iris bulbs today, that we got from our neighbor. Toodle-lou!
