A Binding in a Day

Do you remember those promises of a quilt in a day? Well I've never been able to do that, but today I bound a queen size quilt! Yes, all in one day! My fingers hurt! I can't show the front as I have been quilting in secrecy again! Stay tuned!!!

Kyla's Graduation Quilt

I have been working in secret for a while as I have been working on our niece, Kyla's graduation quilt. I so wanted to post pictures, but had to keep it under wraps!

It is finished, she graduated and all is wonderful with the world!

Old Dog New Tricks

Yesterday I took a quilting class at my favorite shop, Deer Country Quilts in Seeley Lake, MT. We used the pattern Old Dog New Tricks.

 We learned how to use a Quick Trim Ruler to make round blocks. It may soon become my favorite tool! I learned a few other hang tricks as well!

I chose to use French General's newer line of fabric. 
Here are the two versions of my blocks! 

It was a very fun class! I can't wait to get this one finished! It is really rainy and cold today! That's a good thing!

Radiant Suns: Autumn Light

I posted about my radiant suns quilt a while back. It is home from the quilter and slowly being bound. Less than one side to go! I swear a king size quilt has a mile of binding!

I used a new quilter, Debbie Touchette, and I am so impressed! I wasn't sure how she might quilt it, but I think it is perfect! Here is a close up so you can see the detail!
Here is the whole quilt! The photo doesn't do it justice as the evening light sort of fades it out.
I entered this quilt in the Missoula Quilt Show the end of June!

New Finishes

I have been quilting, just not blogging! I thought I should catch up.
There is nothing like a road trip to help getting binding finished. We recently went to the Grand Canyon, so I had two days in the car to bind, and that I did! Here are the projects I got finished!

Radiant Suns Quilt

My friend Robin and told a quilt class called Radiant Suns. I think it was actually 2 years ago! I decided it was time to get this quilt finished so I set to work finishing the 100 blocks!!! I did it tonight!

Now the fun begins! I need to lay out the block in an interesting design.

Mike is going to help my apply the flannel to my design wall tomorrow so I can get this quilt finished by the end of the month!!!

New Ironing Board Cover

I decided my ironing board looked really ratty. I needed a new cover so I bought 1/2 yard of outdoor canvas on sale at Joann's. It cost $5.00. I used the old cover for a pattern. I added a fresh layer of leftover batting to pad it and now I have a nice new cover!
