Thanksgiving day and my sisters quilt

This year I had my Mom and my sisters family come to my house for Thanksgiving dinner, there was 9 of us all together. We managed to sit all of us around the table too. That was nice. Anyway, after we ate, the guys headed in to watch football and my sister and I headed down to my quilt room. πŸ™‚ She has been busy getting some of her rows sewn together from last years lock in mystery quilt, She brought it with her as she wanted to show me how it’s looking. We decided to hang them on my design wall.

She’s liking the way it’s looking and so am I!

That’s it for now. πŸ™‚ hope you had a nice Thanksgiving!

I didn’t get much sewing done this last week and with this week being Thanksgiving, I may not get much done this week either. Anyway, my batik strips are still on the wall.

All that’s left is to add the borders. I found fabrics that I think will look good, now to get them on! πŸ™‚

I did finish several customer quilts last week, as well as my black and white strip quilt.

I even did a pieced backing for it, so I could use up some more black and white fabric. πŸ™‚ One of the fabrics is cats, so I ended up using a kitten panto for the quilting. Of course you can’t see it……..

I got the borders sewn onto my black and white quilt top

I found strips from last years bus trip, in batiks, so now I’m sewing them like I did the black and white strips. I have a little different idea in how to do these. It will be similar but a bit different. So for now my wall has the few batik strips I’ve sewn so far on it.

I finished getting all the flying geese sewn together with sashing strips. Now all that’s left is to put a border on. I’m hoping to get that done this week sometime, but I need to focus on getting customer quilts done. For now the geese are hanging around on my wall.

I’m glad it’s done and I’m happy with the way it looks.
