One done and one in the frame!

Progress on the Kaleidoscope quilt I am making for Christmas. It is done! I finished quilting it and added the binding and put in the last stitch yesterday. Now to make a label and one done! Woohoo! I loaded the Carolina Christmas quilt on Sunday and I am more than half way on the quilting. I need to make more Kaleidoscope blocks for the other quilt. I think I will make this one longer than the one I just finished. It measures 88 x 96. I think one more row and make it 104" long. That would mean a total of 120 blocks. Boy, am I glad they make up pretty quick. I'm not sure how many I have done right now.
Have a good day,
Carolyn

finished piecing all the blocks and the top is together

The kaleidoscope quilt top is together and looking for border fabric. I really wanted to get it in the frame today. Maybe not. The trip to Tennesse was cancelled. I will be heading to BG on Thursday.
Have a Great Day!

Have all the kaleidoscope blocks done

I finished all the blocks for one of the Christmas quilts. I have them laying on the floor not sewn in rows yet. I have more than half the blocks for the other one done also. I hope to have them together by Monday so I can get them quilted and bound before we leave for Tennesse so I can attach the binding in the car. Today I am going to join by bee in sewing cancer pillows. But before I go there I want to visit a new quilt shop that opened in the area.
Have a great Day!
