Busy as a bee

As you noticed I haven't posted lately. I keep saying that I am going to but then something happens that I don't do what I should. Ever feel that way? Well here is what I have been doing. First up I finished my orders.
A pink pinwheel quilt with satin border and flannel back. I quilted small hearts all over it. I used the satin because I know how babies and children love to feel  it.  I offset each of the four blocks of pinwheels to give it some movement.  Next up I had to make a quilt for a friend and her son has the theme cars in his room.
I made  two piano strips and encased the light color of Cars then added the other fabrics.  I made the back red and black. His room is red, black and grey. I think he will like this.  Next I finished up the sawblade quilt in turquoise and pinks I think it turned out sweet. I put turquoise polka dot fabric on the background.
I told you I have been busy. I caught up with my silo barn blocks with Bee in My Bonnett. I love her projects.
Next I have been busy practicing my free motion quilting. I found a pinwheel top at the flea market. It was pinned together so that someone could quilt it. Everything was there. I decided to practice my quilting on it since it only cost me $5. Quite a bargain don't you think. I will show you photos of it tomorrow.

Have you been following the twisting with the sixties blog hop. They are doing a terrific job of using colorful batiks and the projects are really groovy.  I just put up the link on the sidebar for the hop Madame Samm is doing a terrific job of promoting it as usual. She has a new logo and it is really neat. Go check it out!!!!Thats it for today. Have a fun day.
