One Woman Sweat Shop

That title is not original but is shamelessly borrowed (stolen) from my friend, Debi, whose husband thinks she is running a one woman sweat shop! That seems to apply to this woman, too! There are so many projects I want to work on, and I always seem to have several going at once. Here are a few things I've been doing lately:

I've finally assembled the blocks from a 2007 Block of the Month quilt on the Apple Blossom Quilts site. The designer is Connie Sue Haidle. I love this top but have no real plans for it yet, so it'll have to do a little time in the closet! Maybe my granddaughter will take a liking to it someday. (Those are my husband's head, hands, and feet, and that's my sweetheart cat, Quincy.)

Pioneer Braids is finished, after hand quilting, and is in regular use, keeping DH warm in the family room in the evenings. The colors look really good in that room, so it is also a decorating accent.

Here's my first row from Debi's Roosting Round Robin Mystery on the Quilting passion forum. I'm going to try to make this totally from my stash, concentrating on plaids in red, blue, and mustard.
I'm almost finished with a jungle animal quilt from fabric I bought on my adventure to Dallas to meet quilting friends. I hope to post it within the next few days!

Your quilts are beautiful and your row is fantastic. I like the orientation of your blocks.

The Apple Blossom quilt is beautiful. Love the colors. Your DH has to be very pleased with his braid quilt.

I love the Apple Blossom quilt. I've got the pattern but haven't got round to doing it yet.
I've got my fabrics cut out for debi's RRRR quilt. I'm hoping to get them sewn tonight
