WIP: Finish Lines

The race to get some things done around here is at full speed.



I am so happy about this quilt. 

 I posted about the design process and other yummy photos of this quilt.  I am so happy with the piecing the other bee ladies did.  


I am also a bit tickled that Lynne from Lily's Quilts posted on her blog.  To have the quilter that designed the blog say she liked it makes me so proud of the work our Imagine circle for do.Good Stitches did!

In Progress:

Southern Blizzard

 Can you believe it?  14 months later?

I finally finished the top.  I am going to try to cut the backing soon.  Since I have 10 more months until I need it,  I have it third or fourth in line for Ole Betsy.

Turtle Quilt

"Just keep swimming, just keep swimming" always pops in my head when I work on this quilt.

I decided to hand stitch the appliques.

And am now in the process of finishing up the embellishment of hand embroidery. 

  Next on the list is how I am going to tackle the name.  I originally had thought I would do some machine embroidery, but my heart is saying no.  More to hand stitching to come?

No Progress: 

 16 projects.  I won't list them. You might fall asleep and your head might hit the keyboard.  I don't want to be responsible for any lacerations to foreheads.  

New Projects:

Vintage Star

A friend asked me to help her out with a baby quilt.  How could I say no?  We first discussed using the pattern that I used for Button's Quilt and Lyla's Quilt.
However,  when fellow blogger posted this large star made up of oversized HSTs?

I was sold and so was she.  

Free Spirit Fat Quarter Bundles

I have pulled the fabrics from this bundle and am getting ready to cut and piece!

 Linking up with Lee.


Things are a bit different. 
 Whenever Lee makes a change, it always seems to be a good one!


  1. Oh so many lovelies! I just adore the Southern Blizzard quilt top - gorgeous!

    Your Imagination quilt looks absolutely spectactular - fantastic quilting! Just a beautiful quilt all round.

  2. Pretty projects!! The quilting on the Imagination is outstanding as well as the design!! When I saw the little turtle that same thing popped into my head..."keep swimmin, just keep swimming". Happy Wednesday!

  3. Your Imagination quilt is lovely, and the Southern Blizzard quilt top looks great too :)

  4. I love the imagination quilt- the quilting is so lovely. I also like that you're doing the big hst star quilt for the baby. I had been thinking about a big star quilt for the new baby quilt I have to make. I think I've decided to go in a different direction, but I love the big stars-they show off fun prints so well without being just blocks.

  5. Gorgeous work done by the bee ladies and you! I want to do a giant star too. Enjoy

  6. I love your quilting! Gorgeous. I am also enamoured with Vintage Star, cannot wait to see it.

  7. Such GORGEOUS quilting on your DGS quilt, Heidi!! I love how it emphasizes the stars! Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )


I cannot wait to hear what you have to say! Seriously! It makes my day!
