Before 2013 ends, I was trying to bring to a finish a couple of projects I have been working on lately, the Vintage Christmas Quilt top is made and hangs on the rack at The Quilt Shop waiting there to be quilted. I should have taken more pictures along the way...definitely something I need to work on in the future...I will make sure I post a picture as soon as it's done.
I don't do the quilting on my quilts, all my quilts are quilted on a long arm machine at the quilt shop. A couple reasons for this; Until now I was making mostly big quilts and I can just imagine how tough it would be to do on a small machine...just sewing the binding on a big quilt is a task!
There are a few projects I am currently working on, here is a Scrappy Trip Around The World. It started as a project to use my scraps from a previous quilt I made with Denyse Schmidt's Chicopee collection...
I ended up making a few trips to the fabric store to get just a little bit more fabrics.;)
Am I the only one to do this?
Here, I divided each block's strips in piles and moved them around until I was pleased with the result, just trying to distribute the colors subtly...Then I moved them to the design wall. This way I get a good idea of what it will look like when complete. I had to move around a few blocks again. It's been sitting on the wall like this since yesterday. And now, looking at the picture, I see a couple blocks that kind of stands out, but it might just be okay with this type of quilt.
I am really enjoying making this quilt, it is a lot of fun.

Here is another project I want to share with you. It is what I like to call
''my on the go project''. I started this a couple years ago, this is the project I take with me where ever I go, everything I need fits in a plastic bin.
And the third project on my table these days is the Marcelle Medallion Quilt and here is a peek at the center block I start to put together.
Besides the green fabrics (that need to be changed), I am pretty happy the way it looks so far. My stash lacks in green fabrics so I had to order more green fabrics...Waiting for the greens...
