Work(s) in progress

quilting the ragged squares quilt
I'm about half way done quilting the ragged squares quilt. It just keeps getting more cute. The pattern is from here (that's a great quilting website, by the way).

The six crosses quilt is about 90 percent completed. I quilted it today and will start hand sewing the binding (outer border) on when I get done typing this. I can't wait to show it off. Stay tuned.

For those that are wondering, the Grandpa Andy computer training went very well. I had a great time teaching and converting another Apple fan. ha ha. They even fed me lunch and sent me home with lots of leftovers, which were all delicious. The most eventful thing about the trip were the road conditions. On the way down there was lots of blowing snow but nothing too dangerous. But while I was in Linton, the weather and roads warmed up enough so that the snow was sticking to the road, causing lots of ice and snow drifts to form on the road surface. On the way back to Bismarck, I saw seven cars in the ditch (most were SUVs and pick-ups) and one was even flipped over on its roof. Crazy. Needless to say, it was quite a stressful drive, but I arrived home safe and sound.

Love that pattern, I have it on my to-do list, I'm hoping to get to it next. I love the fabrics you used.

Thanks. I used mostly scraps from various projects ... lots of the fabric is "quilting quality" fabric from Joann's crafts bought on clearance - awesome deals and pretty good quality. Other fabric is from the Spice Market line, designed by Fun Quilts Studio from Free Spirit.
