Two more quilts have been cut out and a sample block of each made: "Cheerio" and "Niner" both Camille Roskelley designs using a mixture of Bonnie and Camille fabrics.
Early last week I came across "Girls' Day Out" in my sewing room - this quilt was started in February 2008, the quilt top sewn together at a retreat in March 2010 and the last border flowers were vliesofixed on in January 2011. The quilt top hadn't been touched since. Two nights' worth of stitching and now the top is ready for quilting then all the beautiful buttons and beads can be sewn on.
I've been collecting some orange fabrics over a couple of months to make an orange "Swoon" quilt and the last package arrived yesterday - think I finally have enough to start cutting it out. 4 Fig Tree fabrics were added to the pile after this photo was taken. This quilt will be a gift for someone special.
A few rows have been added to Best Friends Forever - I'm on a deadline for this now, so it will be what I sew this week if I have some spare time in amongst socialising.
I have 3 more quilt tops to give to Karen tonight at stitching and then all bar two of my quilt tops will be quilted. One of these quilt tops was finished in 2011 so it's about time to have it quilted.

I hope it looks as good finished as it does in my imagination as this is another gift quilt.
Stitching tonight so I will be collecting "Not Quite Civil War".
