Making some tracks now!!

 I have a thought in my head, still...that, "OH, I am going to hand quilt all these quilts, some day!!"  Folks, it just can't be done...at least not all of them!!  So, I recently sent these to be quilted, and I am tickled as I can be to have them done, at least to this stage!!  These are all destined to go to the hospital, for patients.  A rail fence scrappy...
 A blue one, for a guy.
 Someone must love pink like I do, at least I am hoping so!
 This one!  This came from one scrap bag, and all seems to go together.  I have an orange scrappy binding planned for it.
 And I have been making progress on the Plaids and Plains flying geese...
 Liking them!!
This is my companion for all things...my Rosie.  A stray, she has become so very important to me.  I love her very dearly.


This one is to keep...I love it!  A Jacob's ladder variation.  It was super fun to make!  And to no surprise, I have another one cut out.




Have a great day!!  Thanks for hanging in there. on a lengthy post!!

I will never tire of your wonderful scrap creations! Each one is a thing of beauty. You have "scrappy" all figured out.
What lucky patients to have such a caring and generous nurse.
Wow, that Jacob's Ladder variation with the pinwheels is really fun!

It seems funny that stray dogs are such good loving pets and yet someone didn't want them. They must be unhappy people and they missed the joy that a stray dog can be!

Such beautiful and happy scrappy quilts! I love them all, but that Jacob's Ladder variation is just extra cool. What a difference that triangle makes!

Me and My Stitches said...

So many pretty quilts! I'm the same as you - have a ton of quilts that I think just need to be hand quilted! But reality is setting in, and slowly I am sending a few out to be machine quilted.

Such a generous soul you are! Lovely quilts to be given. I hope they do appreciate all the work and love that went into those quilts. Bless you! Love the Jacob's Ladder variation. It is gorgeous, as are the others too. Enjoy! ;^)

All quilts are beautiful, but the Jacob's Ladder variation is definitely my favorite.

What wonderful quilts you have made to donate! So very impressive!
and your darling Rosie is precious!!!
Do you need any extra scraps, by the way?? I'd be more than happy to donate!!

I know exactly how you feel about the quilting! I wish my life would be long enough to hand quilt all my favourites,
but it's just not going to be enough years. All of these treasures are gorgeous quilts!
