The wedding quilt post. :)

August already.  Time sure flies doesn't it?

Here in Western Washington we've had the hottest weather I can remember us having this summer.  We are in a drought! What?  We are in Western Washington, rain capital of .. rainy places!  How can we be in a drought?  But everyone assures me we are.  Weird.

So I think I mentioned that I was going to get a mid-arm quilter for our Anniversary.  Hubby made good on that promise and even though I we took the floor model, it is in my house and I've already finished a quilt on it!  I think we brought it home around the 14th or so of July.  I had a quilt to finish by July 26th for a wedding and I did it!!

Hubby is the one who made the pretty bows for the presentation of it.  He is multi-talented. :)

This weekend my project is the quilt that I had the team at the office sign signature blocks for.  Boss's day is in October so I gave myself plenty of lead time but in reality this quilt is a one weekend project with maybe one day of the next weekend for finishing.  Nothing to complicated or fancy.  I blurred out the writing on the blocks for now.  Cellphone picture so not great but I think you can get the gist of what I'm up to. :)

Also working on my eldest son's quilt.  Trying to imagine borders.  The ladies from the Stash Bee made most of these blocks for me in March of 2014 and I've slowly been joining them and adding to them to get where I wanted the middle of the quilt to be and I'm there now.  I just need to figure out what the borders will be and get cracking on them so he can have this before the cold weather arrives.

In theory while I'm quilting these multiple projects my daughter is going to be piecing the rest of her quilt top so it can go on the quilter when I'm done. :)  Oh and here is a picture of my new toy!  That quilt was on it for a while but since I started it as a free motion project on my sewing machine with all different colors of thread it became to much of a pain so I'll finish it on my sewing machine since it is easier to change thread that way.
