And so it grows............ again!!

The WOB pile is growing again!! That's a good thing for sure. The feedsack quilt and the kitchen window quilts are now quilted and on the WOB pile... 3 table runners have been added to it also. It still contains the snowman wallhanging and I found the red/white/blue table mat folded inside the snowman... so that's there also. I got the newest atkinson pattern. It's called Tankini and it's pretty cool! You can make the smallest mat with just 3 jelly roll strips! I'm in a table runner swap and I wanted to test these out and see if my partner likes them...and if she does... I'll make them in her colors. Next up on the to be quilted pile is the frog face quilt from several years ago and a second snowman wall hanging.... both UFO's....... I didn't get to work on the Tokyo Subway Quilt this week... but 2 complete rows are done and together! Hopefully this week I can get another block or two done! I'm getting excited about finishing it.... I need to practice the quilting I want to do...... guess I'll have to make another table runner! lol The quilting is called orangepeel and Elizabeth has it on her ohfransson site. It looks simple to do... so I'm thinking with a bit of practice ahead of time I should be fine! The weather here has been sooooooooooooooooooo hot! This morning we finally got some rain and a thunderstorm... it's supposed to storm now the rest of today and tomorrow... but that's ok.... I'll take the noise as long as the rain comes with it! I'll post a few pics below and you can see the rest on flickr! Oh..and the Indianapolis Zoo has a new bird exhibit...very cool and mostly interactive...pics are on flickr also Oh... I almost forgot! I won a gift certificate to SewMamaSew on the Zakka Sew Along... Mr Random picked my number in the mini magnets project! I'll put a picture of those here also... I got some summersville fabric in blacks and white and a very colorful charmpack of the same...... I also got some cute fabric for see thru pencil cases.. it looks like the connect the dots stuff! till next time......... Lish
