Houston, donation quilts, mystery quilts and other stuff

Well, I’ve been super busy these last few weeks. I made it to Houston for quilt festival this year. First time I’ve been. We had a great time and saw some beautiful quilts!! Checked out all the vendors and saw things we’d never seen before. Spent too much money of course, but it was all worth it!!  We had to have our picture taken here…….

Last week was our donation quilt giveaway night. We gave almost 90 quilts to 3 different organizations. They are always so happy to recieve the quilts. Here’s a few pictures I took of some of them.

I’ve been working on my guild mystery quilt too. I finally finished up all those HST’s. Almost 400 in all! UGH!! I do not like squaring up HST’s!!! Anyway, they are squared up and now I’m on to piecing the blocks.I have the squares sewn into rows, now to sew the rows together to make the blocks. I have 3 blocks finished (out of 44)

My LQS was having a great sale today, so I went and bought fabric for my next Lock in mystery quilt. We’re having the Lock in in March, so Sharon and I need to get busy working on our quilts and writing the pattern. Anyway, here’s my fabric choices for this year.

Here’s what’s on the machine. I don’t think I’m ever going to get to the end of this thing. It’s taking forever to get it quilted……..guess I better get back to it.

Well, that’s it for now. Have a great day!!
