Trying to catch up!

Gosh it's hard to catch up sometimes when you take a few days off.   October finished with a birthday party for Mickey, Halloween preparations, Houston International Quilt Festival, my birthday plus the countless day to day events that occur.   I've been quilting, I just have not had a chance to post.   Also I lost some of my photos somehow.  Here's my attempt to catch up:

One of the classes I took at Quilt Festival.   Silk fabric, silk batting and silk thread stitched on longarm.   Then we "painted" with dye.   We can now use this fabric to make something like a notebook cover.   One of my favorite classes there this year.
Mickey's 14th!
Did I even post the #2 Parasol Ladies as finished?   I don't think so.
Some of my Desert Sky blocks.  
One of the prettier T-Shirt Quilts.  Very colorful!   A lot of people just make up their T-shirt quilts with black, navy and gray type T-shirts.

Kadie says nothing left in here...

Kadie's rare visit to my studio, she knew I was having too much fun re-arranging my thread and was so happy I left a spot for her to give her stamp of approval.

Another pretty T-shirt quilt.

Hubby got my wagon wheel light fixture hung - woohoo!   I had to hang my "Row Robin" quilt there for awhile.   It will go back to my bedroom when I hang one of my Christmas quilts there... maybe next week.

See the directional arrows in this fabric?   I took my cue from that and quilted in directional arrows in the "big blocks", framed by some "flames" and then a flame/gear type of CC in the patchwork for this quilt for a little boy.

The backside looks awesome!

I know he can't read cursive but it is a lot faster to stitch!   The border says" Beep-Beep" all around the quilt.
More later.... Happy Quilting!
