Aren't they just gorgeous?  It amazes me

One of these ladies had never pieced a quilt before.
 
I have several more to show you,
but I will save them for tomorrow.

A cup of joe, or two, or three...........


 I had a request for a pin cushion
about two week back
well, after making one,
they sort of snowballed into making
NINE!
Sew, I just had to show the cuties off
 

They all have plans
of being Christmas Presents.
 


Each has it's own little
personality for
it's intended recipient.







Two of the little guys already
headed to their destination,
and didn't get their
photo taken.
It is my little
rainbow of color. 


 
Aren't they fun? 
 
I also finished Block 12 of the
LMS Quilty Stitches.
I already picked out a fun frame for
it.
 
I can't wait to see it hanging in
my sewing room.

Stitchin' and Finishin'

 
I have been working
right along on my
 
Here we have Block #8
 
 
Block # 9
 

Block#10
 

 
 and Blocks #1-11




I am not so sure about the last one, but
I am committing to it.
It went a little to the dark side. 
 
 
I also had a
quilt finish.  Yeah!!
 


My Iris Snowballs are
all finished up.
 


I didn't do anything
fancy with the quilting
because it
went to my nephew for his graduation present.
He loves the color purple,
and I thought with the black and grey,
it could definitely pass as
a quilt for a fella.
He loved it.
 

 
I will be using this Accuquilt
Die again in the foreseeable future.
It is so much easier and accurate than cutting them
by hand.
