Mystery Quilt Clue 5

Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt Continues.  I finished with Clue 5.  I'm sure glad I choose to make the smaller version of the Mystery Quilt.  If not I would probably still be working on Clue 1.
I finally finished my Design Quilt from Cindy Needham's Workshop I attended in September. 
 I did a Faced Binding.  I'm not sure if I like it.  I may have stretched the edge a little.  And I don't know how I could block it again without leaving holes. 
I still have 3 1/2 days left before I return to work.  So I better get back to enjoying my Quilting Studio.  That's hard for me to say.  It's still my sewing room to me.  :)

Mystery Quilt

I have some days off from work.  And I've been looking forward to getting some quilting done.  But Sunday Morning I was going to make some Labels with my Bernina Embroidery Machine and guess what?  My Bernina stopped working right in the middle of my first Label.  So the Labels will have to wait.  Thank Goodness I have back up Sewing Machine.  It doesn't Embroider.  But it pieces and quilts good.   It's my Pfaff.  I set it up in my SewEzi.  And away I sew.
I also got caught up on my Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt.  I finished Clue 4.  And now I'll be ready for Friday's Clue 5. 
 I won't get to sew on it until Saturday Night or Sunday.  Friday I'm going to see my Grand-Niece Avery.  And her Mommy and Daddy of course.  But she is the star of the show.

Material Girls Christmas 2013

Today was my Friendship Groups the Materials Girls Christmas Party  I was held a Diane new home in Clovis.  We had great food and friendship today.  I always look forward to this party.  These gals are awesome!
Instead of everyone bringing a small gift for each other we exchange a 12"ish block.  And everyone gets to guess who made each little quilt.  Barbara Sindlinger won with the most guesses correct.  She knows us all well.
This is Elaine's ( the first time she made one)


 Lynn Marie's



And here we are with the ones we get to keep.
We also do a challenge each year.  This year we decided on a Dresden Plate.  The quilt had to have at least one Dresden on it.  It could be any size.

It was great day!  We always have fun together!
Now I'm really in the Christmas Spirit!

Mystery Quilt

Friday was the 1st week for Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt.  She has named it Celtic Solstice.  I changed my colors a little.  Where she is using, Green, Yellow, Orange and Blue.  I decided on Green Burgundy, Orange and Blue.  With lights for the background.  I have all of the first week done except for trimming the Dog Ears.  The fabric next to it was my color inspiration.
Last year was the first time I had made a Mystery Quilt and it was fun.  My friend Barbara Sindlinger is making it too.  I'm looking forward to see the next steps.

Thanksgiving Weekend!

I had a wonderful time visiting my new Grandniece on Thanksgiving.  Avery was Born on November 15th.  She weighted in at a mere 5 pounds 4 oz.  She is a tiny little peanut.  And we are all so proud to have a Baby girl in the family.
I got a picture of the 4 Generations.  My Mother, my Sister, my Nephew and Avery.
On Saturday I did some decorating for Christmas.  I can't believe it's that time already.  I still have some Christmas Quilts to finish!
