Ive been working on this one for a while and am finally getting this one to a top stage. This one is Bonnie Hunters Rick Rack Nines from her book Leaders and Enders. I messed up when making this one as I was just putting together 2.5in blocks into 9-patches. This pattern called for 2in blocks. Took me a while to figure out how to adapt this to make her patter, but I finally did. Still have some sewing to finish the top and it need borders. I was thinking a red border, but havnt figured out what to use as the larger border. I had a suggestion to use a small black border and a larger red border. I am thinking I may do that. Ill have to think about it.

Finally got this one to top stage and off to the UFO bin it goes awaiting its turn to be quilted. This was made using this uTube tutorial by the Three Dudes Quilting.
I will bind this one with an orange to bring that out of the center and finish it off. I wasnt liking this pattern, but now that it is finished its not too bad. Personally I wont do this pattern again.

First up is a Winter Tree Wall hanging. I have this top put together, but it went straight to the UFO pile. I love this and will get it finished soon.
Next up is this beautiful label that Janet Yatska. This label will go on the beautiful Crabapple quilt that was made for my dad. You can see that quilt here. Thank you so, so much Janet. We love it!!
Made these pinwheels for a swap in the Facebook group Quilt Block Swap Group.
Out of the left overs came this mug rug. I try to use everything up!! I try!!
Pulled this quilt out of the UFO pile and it is currently getting quilted...finally. This is "crumbs in the grass".
Lastly, I finally put together the extra Orca Bay blocks into pillows to go with the quilt. As you see I have stuffed on of them and tonight I will stuff the other. I just love them!

I made this one a long while ago and thought I would FMQ it,but got so frustrated with it that I had to put it way. Off to the UFO pile it went. Michelle over at Michelle's Romantic Tangle is focusing on Baby quilts, so I am pulling a new one out of my UFO pile to finish them up. Thanks Michelle for the motivation to get them finished. I will have an easier time of it cause I learned alot about FMQ while involved in The Free Motion Quilting Project this past year.
This quilt is more for a tiny newborn then could be used as a wall hanging in the baby's room. Hmmmmmmmm...So,off I go this weekend to finish this one up and will post the final picture next week.
Linking up to Michelle's Romantic Tangle.

UFO number 3 is finished. I won these Christmas blocks at a meeting of my quilt guild. I didn't particularly like them all together so I made three table runners out of them. Here is the last one.
Go check out Quilting for Sanity!.

Pink baby quilt. In the process of being quilted.
Close of picture of the quilting. I am "in-lining" the triangles...LOL
Finished this little table runner using some scraps that where sent to me.
Found these blocks in a drawer and put them together to make another baby quilt. It is off to the UFO pile till I finish the other one.
Last but not least. I found this at a yardsale. Thought it was cute!
