Linking up today with Lorna over at Sew Fresh Quilts for "Let's Bee Social No. 94".

I do believe that I have one too many projects going on at this time. 

My first priority now is to get Scrappy Mountain Majesties quilted for my grandson.  I'll head down to the clubhouse today to see if anyone is in the craft room that I can talk to about a time when I can move tables together for an afternoon so I can pin baste the quilt and then I can get busy free motion quilting it.  Front is on the left and the back is on the right.

Yesterday I received my first wool applique kit from Farmhouse Threads and I also ordered the second block from Rusty Crow.  These blocks are part of Christmas Mystery Quilt Blog Hop sponsored by Farmhouse Threads.  Be sure to check this blog hop out and join in.  After all, what's one more project.  I need to print out the pattern and then cut the pieces out.  Looking forward to stitching my first wool block.

I finally finished Round 3 of Rosette 1 and have started auditioning fabric for the final round of the rosette.  It will take forever for me to complete, but I'm determined.  I need to find some other fabric for the diamond shapes and one of the hexagons as I'm not real happy with the red and green at this point.  The rose material will circle around the whole Rosette. 

I also have three of the hexagons for the Christmas Wreath and have traced the patterns onto fabric for the next two, Jesus and Merry.  That leaves only one more and the embroidery will be finished. 


I have one more quilt top that needs to be quilted and that is my Grand Illusion which needs to be quilted before the end of December as it is for our bed and sometime after Christmas we hope to be on the road again.  First stop will be Quartzsite in Arizona.  I've never been there and it is one of those bucket list items.

More medical and dental appointments going on this week and next week.  I keep telling myself that this too shall pass and believe me I'll be glad when it does. 


  1. Your Scrappy Mountains is lovely. I REALLY love the back! I'd be torn about which to use as the "up" side. :)

  2. Ha! It's perfect. You've created a double-sided quilt and both sides are beautiful. I love your plaids on the back.

    1. Thank you Nancy. I love quilting and collecting all the fun fabrics out there.
