Some finishes

I am sort of proud of myself this week - we had three major things happen ( two were NOT planned) and I still got back to my quilting. Usually I just give up and say... Tomorrow...

So here is to some persistance.

Thing #1 - our Water heater went out.... I went downstairs to get something and I heard a hissing. I was a little scared at first - usually hissing is a snake.. BUT not in the house. So I checked the utility room and one of the water heaters was leaking.  We are on a cistern/well and can run it dry really quickly - so I called my amazing plumber. He had me shut it down until he could come.  We are now running on one water heater. Yes - I did get a cold shower. Tomorrow - i will be up FIRST!!

Thing #2- my colicky horse ( Tuesdays post) . Even after all that worrying - I got back to quilting ... yay me!

So... Here is my first finish.

It is made with the Scrappy Trips Blocks. Dear Connie pieced it and I quilted it.

I have a new panto - is has musical notes on it - so I tried it on this quilt.

I like it ;-)  And it will be great for T shirt quilts too - the musical ones.

And then I worked on a customer quilt.  Isn't this fun?  Of course it is the back , I like the texture that is has.

It may not seem like a lot - but I am claiming victory this week ;-)  Hope you all had a great week, and will have an even better weekend!

I love the bubble quilting. Is your machine programmable, or is it freehand? Yours looks perfect!

Hi Alycia. I think you are doing great. Love the quilting designs.
I've done no sewing because of baling hay, feeding cows, watching the calves running around with their tails in the air, gardening and pinching the new grandbaby's cheeks.
Take care my friend!!

I like the idea of using musical notes in quilting. That's a very patriotic and fun quilt.

I say any progress towards a finish is good, and you should be proud. I did nothing last week... lots of pain and the meds put me out of work. Then this week I changed my mind about the Grandgirl wedding quilt yet again. Now I'm making a D4 and like it lots better.

Hope your horse is recovering well and you get your water heater fixed. What a week! Love that scrappy trip, Alycia. And the pantos look great.

Looks like a pretty good week. Love those bubbles. Such a fun change in texture with the big open spaces.

I missed your colicky horse post - glad he's better. I like both of those quilting patterns. I can see you using those on lots of quilts! Cheering you on in your victory - you are getting lots done. Here's hoping your next shower is a hot one!

Congrats on the finishes. Love the quilting on both projects.
