PATCHES AND POINTS QUILT FINISHED

Its been another busy week and week end for me....i made up my mind that i was going to get the patches and points quilt done finally and i did...

it took till Monday night before i was finished with this...i dont know why i had trouble keeping at it till it was done unless it was the double stitching around the border...i think i have 1 more 9 patch quilt to finish before i am done with the multicolor patches i made years ago....i will be glad when all is finished....i got carried away making them...lol

i remembered i hadn't posted a picture of my wall hanging i put in the bathroom....for some reason the walls a gold color doesn't want to show up  behind the hanging... but the wall hanging too ok...i should have made it bigger i think, i love it

i like these colors so much the next quilt i make will be oranges, reds, browns and golds....i showed the block i will perfect that will be the next one as soon as i get all my colors together....

i did a self imposed color study about  a year ago i think with pastel hoffman and moda watercolors that made a series of quilts in different patterns and sizes before i was done...i have yet to quilt several of them...but i made an original block for the first and second one and i might make it again using all batiks next....i am thinking about it here is the pastel one with green border...

i think it will look very good in batiks if i choose the right ones...havent decided on a color scheme yet...i have some others i want to try to get finished before i start another one....this one has to be too...

i started making a bag yesterday and got the front the way i wanted it...it all started from a piece of fabric i didn't want to throw away....so i made a design on front and finished the fabric off by using on the sides  of the front...but i cant quilt the whole thing till my thread order comes...i didn't have the right color so that is on hold for now...

i have 3 mug rugs made but from the looks of the scrap pile i should make more....i have a pretty good supply of binding in there that could be used up on those too....

maybe i can get the sewing room straightened up some too it sure needs it....and of course the stack of fabric is growing high on the table again....well back at it again.....more later.....
