catching up on easy street and customer's quilt

I'm catching up on easy street part 1
I started sewing together the 4 patches already
now I need to order the easy angle ruler for part 2
I also finished a customer's quilt

A fun 30s print quilt.
I quilted feathers inside the white squares in light blue thread
Now I have a friend who just a job with a litteracy group for out county for adults who don't know how to read, she used to be our PTA president and is a good friend. I told her that I would make her a "book" quilt to auction off, here's the book I saw at the library with this neat pattern, it's pretty simple but so NEAT. the book is called " the modern quilt workshop"

Here's a few pics of Sonja's "jenny jump up"

she liked it for about 5 minutes.

AND McCall's just approved 2 more quilts
plus I finished the first quilt for Quilt it today.

Nice feathers on the customer quilt.
Sonja is so cute! Does that expression say, "Get me out of this thing, please"? : ) said...

I don't have all my fourpatches ready yet, but working on them. The rulers for this project are not for sale here, so I use the other method with easy flying geese, 4 1/4" geese fabric and 4 squares 2 3/8" background, give 4 at a time. It works well. Have a nice weekend.

lucky for me my boy still loves his jump up (he's 16 mo now.) It's the only way I can work on my quilting projects without him getting into everything :)

Beautiful quilting.

You just don't stop do you? But I sew understand. If I didn't work outside the house I'd be doing almost the same.

You have been a busy busy busy busy Bea! I like the quilted feathers you did on the 30's quilt, your customer will love it! Congrats on your Easy Street progress; I'm waiting awhile to see a bit more of the pattern before I dive in!

Sonja is so adorable! Great company while you quilt! I just have a yellow lab that sleeps through my sewing. LOL
