DWM-8/23/2010

Wow! When I did my photos this week, I was amazed at all I got done this week! A little here and a little there adds up.
I had three finishes, the first of which is my little pink and yellow strings quilt. I have not finished a string quilt is a long time! This will go to the Mountain of Quilts at the WSQ show this year.



The next two are for Quilts for Kids. I have had the kit for the Dogfighters quilt since spring! It's about time I got it done and sent!




I blogged about the Raggey Ann and Andy BOM awhile ago. I have two of the blocks in various stages of completion. I am saving them to work on during our upcoming vacation, but I couldn't resist doing some of the red work now! I did mix up 2 of the designs in the block on the right, so I had to adapt it a little! I also am doing a pieced sashing or maybe make more pieced blocks, and leaving off the black sashing.



This is a cute design I found and decided to use as a hand applique' project during vacation. These cupcakes are so cute! I think I'll put a button on top of each cupcake, and then try my hand at free pieced letters to finish it off.



My L&E project is crumb blocks. I have 57 of them made. I plan to stop at 80 of them. They are 6.5" blocks, and I'll put sashing between them when I put them together. Black or red sashing-I'm not sure yet!



And last but not least, my scrappy star top is all sewn together. I am just going to put a simple border on it and call it good!



Well, that's my DWM! Hope your week was productive too!
I also have sold six quilts in the last two weeks! I'm so amazed at the results of doing all those treasuries on etsy! That reminds me, I have not done one in awhile! A quilter's work is never done-Thank God!!!

God bless'
Mary

A penny here and a penny there sure adds up quickly to $5.00. You got at least that much done this week. Lots of bright quilts!

You have accomplished so much! Love the Heartstrings quilt. I've been making some blocks too. I really do like the combination you've used and the placement of the blocks is great!

Nice, I love your stars too. They are all very cool but the scrappy one is my fav. Wow six quilts sold, congratulations. I haven't figured out how to be successful on etsy. I have several quilts that are up for sale and I am trying a black Friday craft sale too.
