Finish it Up Friday

I have a finish!!! Actually I have had it for a while now, but my lack of internet and fire season has delayed my blogging.

Ta da! My carpenter star quilt! I don't have anywhere to take good photos at my place in Phx, so I apologize for the bad pictures. The fabric is from a mix of Joann's and local fabric stores. I quilted the top in a light grey and the back in a light blue. I so wish I had better photos for you all! I really was looking forward to entering this quilt in the Bloggers Online Quilt Festival, but we had a fire in New Mexico and I miss it! 

I am really proud of how the quilting came out. Especially since I did it on my tiny Bernina Bernett! Lets just say, that quilting this quilt made me realize that I really need a new sewing machine.

Here is a photo of the quilt in its new home! I made my first quilt for my friend Wendy's first child. I am happy to say that this quilt is for her second! I probably would not be quilting today if it wasn't for her getting pregnant three years ago!

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it Up Friday!

No internet woes!

Hello blogland I have missed you so!

It has been forever since my last blog post! In that time I have moved back down to Phoenix for this years fire season. I am rooming with a friend and she unfortunetly does not have internet.
Hence, no blogging.

But life is all not bad because.......

Ta da! She is all mine!!! I am so excited to have a new machine!
I have wanted a Juki for a year and finally took the plunge and bought one! I got it from a local store in Phoenix. They were so sweet and even gave it to me at the sale price. We have been so busy at work with fires that I have not gotten to use it very much. But on my last day off I sewed for 7 hours!!

Look at all the flying geese I sewed up!

I saw someone do this on their blog to keep their blocks organized! What a great idea! 50 plates for a dollar! Gotta love the dollar store.

All of my friends seem to be having babies at once and I have four quilts that I need to hurry up and make. I am not sure if I am going to have time this summer do make them! But at least now I can attempt to free motion quilt!!
