Quilting

 Finally I have all my Butterfly Garden blocks together and ready to be machine appliqued and hand stitched. I can see the end in sight now, though it is over near the horizon!
BG is my night time stitching; aside from doing bindings.

 I have another An Angels Story block prepared ready to machine applique.

 This cute little quilt is half bound and I have almost finished quilting it; maybe it will be done by tomorrow for the end of the month????

Ah yes, quilting. Lots of it!
Even though it is pinned and ready to quilt I keep procrastinating about quilting the QS Luna Notte quilt (2nd from right).
Also ready to quilt is the Shheep quilt for DS5yrs. I kept putting off machine appliquing the sheep on it because it's awkward once the whole quilt is together. I am going to ditch the quilt then raw edge/quilt the sheep. Not sure how it will turn out but at least my son should get his quilt sooner rather than later!
The quilt on the left is a dissapearing nine patch with white sashings that I made using two charm packs of American Jane's 'Punctuation' range. I will quilt this and put it away for when I need a baby/toddler quilt.
The last quilt in the pic (2nd from left) is another dissapearing nine patch, but without the sashings. I used two charm packs of 'Max and Whiskers' by Urban Grey - gorgeous fabrics.... This quilt, small as it is, isn't pinned yet as I AM OUT OF BASTING PINS and need to quilt in order to baste some more!

Well, you're certainly not going to be sitting around twiddling your thumbs. I look forward to seeing how your machine appliqueing goes.

You are brilliant! I never thought about putting all of the BG blocks together like that first and the stitching them. Great idea!

It's so lovely to see all your beautiful Works in Progress ...... especially your BG. I am making very slow progress on mine.
I guess you know you have some quilting ahead of you when you run out of basting pins. lol
Happy stitching!
