oliver's quilt

i just finished my other nephews quilt. i quite like it!!! i had stamp fabric that was the reason for this quilt.
the backing i used was something my mom gave me that my sister like so that worked out nicely. it's a black and blue ticking.

just used a solid blue for the binding and washed it up and will give it to him this week.

i don't know if you can tell the color of this wall but this is going to be my sewing room in my new house. it's called rainwater. (martha stewart) i LOVE it!!!!!! very soothing. our house is coming along nicely. all the painting that i can do for now is done!! it feels GOOD!!! we leave for ohio on friday and i CAN'T WAIT!!!! fabric shack here i come!!! i won't have to think about the house for two weeks!!! :) i just finished my second quilt to bind in the car. a queen size and twin size. one is my son's and one is a wedding gift for when i get back. lots going on!! it's all good. hope you are doing well!!:)

off and running

june started with a bang!! we are getting a house ready to move into. this is major work. the house needs LOTS of tlc!!!! so in this post there are pictures of my torn up house and quilts. :) i finished 5 this month but don't have all of them shown. in between painting ceilings, getting walls ready to paint and then painting and then mudding other walls and prepping them i did enjoy some quilting. that's only the stuff i can do too! these pictures show you only what is being torn down/apart and then put back together again. :) when things start to get more done i'll show a few more updates. it's been awhile so i hope everyone is enjoying their summer and all is well. new quilting room. i got two more feet added to it so it's going to be a little bigger.
