Lorax and fabric ball and customer's quilt done

You can tell it's vacation time when I don't blog post every day!
Of course I can't avoid a little quilting or hand sewing :-)

I finally finished this customer quilt. yay!! it was a monster :-) 95 x 105" could hardly fit on my frame, but I managed:-)

I quilted an all over funky flower and leaves patterns


Today while the kids were at VBS, I just HAD to do some machine sewing.
so I started the Dr Seuss- the Lorax quilt. I cut out the panels and I'm pretty much designing it as I go. I will have a tutorial later for it I think.


here's the first part of a block


then I'm adding more borders to it.


I also finished another fabric ball, it's small!


here it is next to the rotary cutter. I'll keep it for Sonja!
