no finishes

I am not getting to much done these days.  I loaded the string quilt up on the frame to get to quilting, but had some real issues with the Juki, I finally just took it to the shop.  They say it is showing signs of wear, still skipping stitches.  While I was there I played with the Babylock Coronet, nice machine 16 inch throat, stitch regulator, sits on a smaller frame.  Then I asked how much $$ about 6000 which isn't bad just can't do it right now.  Been looking around on the internet to find another midarm machine can't decide if that is really what I want need.
if I get another mid arm I would upgrade the carriage another 150.00, stitch regulator 499.00 and then the cost of a machine so around 2000.00.  I will wait on making this decision for the moment.

In the meantime I started two new projects, the first one is this
I had purchased grunge 2 1/2 mini pack added some dark navy blue, and thought about the stars.  I think I like the gray wonky stars better than the white/black ones.

This is the other one.
this month at the LQS they had a clear out sale and on the table were a bunch of scraps you filled a  quart size bag for 6 dollars, i scooped up all the Batiks I could find, this only represents about 1/4 of  the bag.  I separated by value and choose the Curvy Log Cabin for these brights.  I am lucky if I get ten minutes a day in the sewing room during the summer.
I have seen lots of amazing quilts over the past couple of weeks on the Linky Parties. 
ALL of you keep inspiring ME!  Thanks


  1. Oh sweet! What a great find of scraps, and by the bag too! You've made good use of them - be sure to post progress of this beauty. Thanks for sharing today on Midweek Makers

  2. You may not have finished things but your projects in progress look great! Love that curvy log cabin.

  3. Great projects! I find summer is my abundance time for quilting which is so opposite of others. ( I teach... so I have more free time in summers.) But I love your projects. 10 minutes of time will get you to the goal.
