Quilt projects I am working on

I am working on this takes time to place the pieces in the right places.

This is what I did with some black and white 5" squares I had.  You can see the
white wonky stars but if you look closely, you can see the dark ones too!
I can not wait to have quilt this one!
Let me know what you think!

Scrap Happy

Last weekend I visited an aunt that I have not seen for quite a while.  She makes beautiful quilts...makes mine look like Crap compared to her work.  She gave me a big bag of scraps.  I can not wait to go through them to sort out and see what I can use for another quilt.
I hope everyone has a Happy 2011.

Quilt Binding complete!

Over the last week I put the binding on:
2 queen sized quilts,  1 King sized quilt, 3 baby quilts, and 2 lap quilts!
Yea!!!! now I feel I can finally start a new project.  Oh, I still have 5 quilt tops to put on the quilting frame but I will get to that soon enough!
I am also trying to arrange my material closet.  I am going to try to sort by color I guess!

Pain Filled Day

For some reason I am in lots of pain today.  My ankles, knees, hands, wrists  and shoulders......this RA is rough but I will not let keep me from living.  I have to keep moving.   The weather her is cool and damp.   On cool, dry days I am much better.  I will be taking my Humira shot today (#5).  I think it is helping but today is really bad.   I guess I will have days like this.
I want to spend a little time sewing this hands may not be so swollen then. I hope everyone had a great day.
