Whoop! Whoop! 11.30.2018

My two Christmas tree skirts have been gifted and received.

One went to my nephew who purchased his first house December 2017. I didn't have time to create a tree skirt last year so I made it a priority this November.

The second Christmas Tree skirt went to my son. He recently moved into his own place and purchases a tree!

My son is a Red Wing fan so Red Wing fabric on the back!

WIP Wednesday 11.28.2018

I pieced together another wheelchair quilt top from the charity group. I arranged it on the table, sewed the rows and then transported it home for completion.

Somehow, I goofed up the arrangement with two lights together. I really am learning to love my design wall I have in the sewing room!

I also pieced a few string blocks and stars for my FB Quilt of Valor Stars block drive. This current drive ends 12.31.2018. They have only received a fraction of the goal so I will be making more blocks to send along.

I have six more cut that I can piece before starting in on my Christmas projects and hopefully, be able to sew a few more.

Design Wall 11.12.2018

I'm working on a hockey raffle basket quilt.

I put together the main portion of the quilt using a variety of 10 inch squares of hockey fabric along with 2.5 inch cut sashing and cornerstones.

I then thought it was a good idea to free piece words in the border. I'm currently working on 'HOCKEY IS LIFE', but I am having trouble with the 'K'. This is the third 'K' I've made and I think I just might go with it! LOL
