The end is in sight.........

.........I've finished the commissioned Double Wedding Ring quilt! And love how it turned out. =) The quilting is great, and I'm thankful that Trish was able to get it done so quickly for me. Am working on the matching pillow shams at the present time and the plan is to finish them either today or tomorrow so I can deliver them tomorrow. =) Here are a couple pics of the finished quilt and the quilting.

Gratitudes -
1. I had just enough of one of the green fabrics to make the right number of arcs for the quilt and the pillow shams.
2. For Trish slipping this quilt into her line up and quilting it for me.

Molly's lotto block

I'm in a monthly block exchange with a group of friends. And love making the blocks because the blocks always stretch me in some way and help me to grow as a quilter. This month's block is for Molly and she sent out civil war fabrics to everyone, along with different block pattern. She sent me the Swamp Angel Block pattern and plenty of fabric for it. =) Finished it up last nite and will get it in the mail today tomorrow.

And I received a block yesterday that was made for me by Cap'n Nancy. Thanks Nancy for the great block! Love how the block turned out - esp. since I had no clue what to do with the set of Fq's that were the starting point for the blocks made for me this year. =) Am looking forward to seeing the rest of the blocks and thinking about what I want to do for alternate blocks.
Gratitudes -
1. For the room that I'm renting and the room I have to sew there.
2. For the the way that God will continue to lead me as I consider going into teaching.
