Another Wednesday Wonderings

I've been trying to get some basted quilts quilted, so that means no sewing since I don't want to keep changing the setup. But I'm feeling a tad scatterbrained. 

 Here's the quilt I showed with the stencil on it yesterday. I just did some simple primitive quilting.

 You saw these the other day, now they are in my sewing room with pieces cut for binding.
 I'm thinking of using this beautiful fabric for my Revolutionary Flags backing. I LOVE it!

 Here is a primitive little wool piece designed by Rebekah Smith. 
I am working on hand quilting, but in-between I want to get this stitched down. It's another one by Rebekah Smith.

Have an awesome day!

  1. I love your wool pieces! I really like that little block on the right side of the second picture. The pieces must be very little. Awesome quilting!

  2. You have been busy! Isn't it nice to see all of your projects together? Sometimes I feel like I get nothing done, but when you see a nice array like this, you know you've been productive! Love your quilting on the log cabin blocks - seems you got that done in a hurry! Great backing fabric too! You go girl!

  3. It's not called scatterbrained, it's called creative! Love the pumpkin tumbler, how clever! I have never seen that blue pillar print with the eagle. How could I have missed that one? I love it. It is the perfect backing for that quilt.

  9. sometimes don't you feel overwhelmed by the different stages everything is in...I have a pile just as big :) I was looking at your photo and was trying to figure out what that was until I turned my lap top upside down, LOL. I am in love with the Santa to the left...so much love...so little time LOL

  19. Lori - Do you change the color of your quilting thread? I can't quite tell from the photo and am curious to know.

  20. I spied that little red and blue quilt from your Quiltalong. My little one just got quilted and is also waiting for binding. The large one is still a flimsy. Nice to have company with the upUFOs.

  32. I chuckled when I saw your pumpkin wall hanging. What a great idea to finish that now rather than the day before Halloween! You've inspired me to pull mine out.

  33. wow - you're really busy! Is the pillar print one of the ones I sent from Jill's collection? It will be fabulous on the back, just perfect.
    all your little projects looks great quilted.
