Quilty Pictures as Promised!

As Promised, pictures of all of the quilts I have been working on in the last couple of weeks. Some are finished being pieced, some are not, none are quilted yet. I have found that I really like getting 4 or 5 tops done then I spend a marathon week quilting on the frame since I have so little moving room that actually seems to work the best for me.
So, in no particular order...

This is Morgen's 14th birthday quilt! I still have one row of left facing shoes to do. A couple things about this quilt, I was given this pattern by an old friend from high school. Morgen is a shoe fanatic, she has more shoes than I do! She has helped me with this project including picking out the fabric for the funky shoes! Oh and this is the first time I have ever attempted applique!

this is a really close up of my August block lotto block, I go to quilt party at my local Craft Warehouse, this was a really fun block, although the picture is rather yellow the back ground fabric is actually white! I really hope I win the block this month, this would be a fun quilt to do.
For a while now I have been thinking about replacing my King size quilt on my bed, it is old and just a simple blue trip around the world, one of the first quilts I ever made and the reason I got my frame! This is the start to my new quilt for my bed.... What do you think? Each large block is 12.5" x 12.5" This is just a simple little panel I found at the store, it is Animal ABC's, I am going to boarder it, and quilt it and hang it in my preschool room in my daycare.

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee, Yep it is time for the three coffee quilts! They are all very similar, except this one has coffee bean corner blocks, and says cappuccino, espresso and latte in the sashing and boarders.

Same as the one above except, coffee cups on the boarder and sashing and no corner blocks.

This one is my favorite, I has the same latte, espresso... words around the boarder and sashing, the biggest difference is color this one tends is really blue and no coffee bean fabric since it was to dark for this quilt. I should have posted close ups... If you want to see close ups ask and I will post them.

Carl's quilt, finished!!! I was pretty happy with how this quilt turned out once I got it quilted.

I am terrible about putting labels on my quilts, I have only ever labeled two other quilts, I found this wonderful book of iron on label designs that you then color with sharpie... well it had the perfect label for this quilt! We ironed it on a white cotton that had a white dot design... Well the design showed up when Torrie colored the eagle. I love it!
Scoochy just home from the groomers! We have just found a new groomer and she is wonderful! She does a fabulous job and he is so cute, but as always after a big day out poor little baby was so tired! So he snuggled up on one of his favorite quilts and fell asleep.

Well, that is all for today! Now it is time for bed, I have been getting up at 5 AM because one of my kiddo's has to be here by 6 am this week. Needless to say that is way to early for poor Ginny, I have found I need to be in bed before 10 pm or I get really crabby!
Thank you all for stopping by and for every ones words of welcome back on my last post!
I promise once school starts and the summer go go go schedule calms down I will get back to my regular blogging schedule!
Take care
