A bit of my own....

Thought I would throw in today a bit of my own projects. The top quilt is my Sunshine on my Shoulders quilt top! I'm just now putting on wide white borders and then I will get it quilted. I'm going to scallop the borders.
I also had to write a mystery quilt for our quilt guild. The goal is to get a lot of people to do it, and then display the finished quilts next spring at our quilt show. It will be a display to showcase how the same quilt can look different with different settings, fabrics, quilting, etc. So I kind of wrote the mystery with that in mind. I"m doing 2 versions of it for myself - I couldn't decide which one to do so I finally decicided to do both!
These fabrics are my wall hanging size. Aren't they lucious! That plum color is to die for! This version will follow the instructions exactly as written. My other version will have some variations and be queen size. That version is going to use those Cherrywood fabrics I bought at the show this last weekend.

Otherwise I'm busy just trying to finish things up at work before I go to Paducah. And I have a few class samples for the quilt shop to finish can get over there. So once again I have a million quilt projects in the fire! Oh and my poor secret project has to get done, done, done before Paducah! Boy - I had better get going!

Your sunshine quilt is great! I can't believe how different it looks from the primitive ones. You really wouldn't even know it is the same pattern.
I still need to pull my fabrics for the mystery!

Great quilt. I can't wait to see the mystery ones done.

Is that plum color a Moda Rites of Spring? I love that new line. I bought some of quite a few, but our LQS only got the large print in the beige background. I may have to go surfing to find myself some in plum.
