 I recently was on a road trip, and finished the applique and binding of this little quilt.  Kind of a crazy quilt, isn't it??  I do a lot of hand work on the road...keeping those hands busy!
 I imagine this will find a home as a table topper, and I am glad it is completed.
 A little mug rug, out of scraps and leftover hearts.  Don't you just love a striped binding?
 Closing in on finishing the hand quilting on this quilt!  It is my own design, and is a signature quilt from my son and DIL's wedding.  Just a few years overdue...not too bad, LOL!!
And my Quilty Folk inspired scrappy quilt!   The colors are washed out in the photo, and it needs a pure white background, so you can see the colors properly.  This one reminds me of the ocean...I always just thought the ocean was "blue", but when I actually got to see it..there are so many colors, from greens to deep, almost blue-black colors!!  If I lived by the ocean?  I would walk by it EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!

Hope everyone is doing fantastic, and hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving (at least here in the USA)!!!

A few more stars in the Galaxy!

 A few more stars are emerging!  I found that I had cut this quilt out...twice.  I just thought I had one quilt cut out, but found two!  So I loving the old and new plaids being combined.
 Rosie likes it too...or the warm blocks from the iron!!
This is something entirely new.  Audrey from Quilty Folk made the most beautiful scrap quilt this past year.  I have been in severe love with it since the moment I saw it!!  I had an idea, to use all this shade/shades of fabric to make a scrappy quilt like hers.  Here is my start....hmmmmmmmmm we shall see!!

please see her blog right here!!

Have a super weekend, each of you!!

 I am continuing to make a few plaid stars!!  These are such fun to make, and all from the plaid scraps.
Let's give away this book!  It is a super fun one, and it is the prize for the November Binding Blitz. I am sure I will find some fun fat quarters to go in the package, too. So rev up those binding fingers...and finish some bindings!!!  Random drawing is at the end of the month...

Have a great day, each one of you!!

 Lisa has all the bloggers listed, one block a week.  I am using up some wool scraps, and some felt too. Above is the first block!!
 I think I may change this to a red, shiny nose!!
 A little lamb of Peace...
 Santa, you need a face!!!
And his sleigh as well.  All of these still need stitching and embellishment, but at least I am this far along!!

Above is Cindy C.'s beautiful quilt, for the binding blitz.  She is donating this quilt...isn't it lovely?  Thank you, Cindy, for participating....I took a picture of my screen, because I really wanted to share this beautiful quilt with all of you.

 I am working on binding this quilt.  It has been quilted for a long time, and I have the binding attached and am in the process of hand stitching it to the back.  I saw a quilt at the Dallas Quilt Show several years ago, took a picture of it, and then kind of went on my own and changed it all up to match what I liked at the time.
 Pretty matchy/matchy, isn't it???
But it is quite large, and looks pretty on the guest bed!!

Have you been binding something the last three months??  Please add your link below!!  A random winner will be chosen, to receive the bundle of Batik fat quarters I showed early last month.

Have a great day, all!!
