I really do have quilts in progress
Really. Here is proof.
You are looking at my design wall. The bookcase with all the fiber related books is to the right. The backing for the donation quilt is on the wall and is actually covering the flimsy of the quilt. Of course, the quilt is done so this photo is about one week old. To the left of the backing you can see A Christmas Wish table runner that is pinned on top of the gently folded Iris Garden top.
But there has been a slowdown on quilting as I do a bit of Christmas sewing. Dear Auntie has such a dowager hump that she can not wear off the rack blouses, so I have customized a blouse/shirt pattern to fit her. My SIL and I have combined efforts on a Christmas present this year: she bought the slacks and I am making blouses to coordinate with them. Auntie will get two new outfits for Christmas. It is slickery fabric that I am working with and is slow going so it is pin pin pin and baste baste baste. *sigh*
