Finished another one!

I am continually amazed at how time just seems to fly right by. This week is now half over and it seems like it was just Saturday when sweet kid #3 left for San Antonio. What fun she is having.

I spent most of Sunday afternoon and evening sewing on my OC mystery quilt. Here are is a picture of the blocks finished. Actually, it is just one of each of the sets of blocks sewn. I now need to print out step 6 (the last!) and put this baby together.

I spent Monday in front of the television (something I don't normally do during the day) watching a marathon of The Closer on TNT. We just love this show; probably her southern drawl. I had seen most of the episodes but they were leading up to the new season's launch that evening. While watching I was hand sewing down the binding on this quilt. (Side note - I would love to learn how you bloggers get web pictures into your blogs. Any help???? Thanks)

The fabric is from the 2003 Thimbleberries club. Our local quilt show owner in Oblong, IL designed the pattern and we used it in place of the summer quilt in the program. I finished the top in 2003 but didn't start on the hand quilting until just recently(took a break and made my grandmother's quilt)but now it's done!! Next is the fall quilt from the same year that needs sandwiched and quilted. I have a couple of months before it's needed so I'd better get on it too.

Better run. I hear my sewing machine calling! Thanks for stopping by.
Happy quilting!
