Summer celebration swoon

Good morning beautiful people
Here it is all done and ready for a lucky person
To buy that one lucky raffle ticket
It's all made of fat quarters from Joanna fabrics

Fractured diamonds
I totally do not have a pattern or special ruler for this one
Made strip tubes and started cutting

I am very happy with my big feather

And swirl
Was not sure about continuing on in the white strips but I 
Ask the green fairy and Amy's free motion and they and my husband
Agree to continue with them

Another beautiful sunrise over the river
Doctors appts. for hubs today
Some running while we are in town
Have a great Easter holiday

Carpenters star

This is what it really looks like all done

It's about 68/70
I added another 2in to top and bottom to make it a little taller
Truly is a quick quilt and so many color ops.
My blocks are 6" finished
I started with7 in and cut them down

My hubs poor guy had as cist taken off his head for the third time
A surgeon not a derm this time he says it will not be back
He has to wear a hard hat at work so yes he is home for 2weeks
I am posting from the doctors office now 15 min behind

And another beautiful sunrise at work Saturday morning
I am working on binding this week and finishing the quilting fractured diamonds
Happy so far with it I did rip out a line of stitches
We'll hopefully doc will be here soon
Have a beautiful day

French braid new start

Monday sunrise

New beginning
Carpenters star wedding gift

Tennessee waltz
Another new beginning
Hubs is working nights so cutting and pressing is quieter than sewing in the next room
And remember this one
We'll long story short the center braid is not 2.5strips it's 1.5so have to cut them down
I went to the closest quilt shop to ask for direction so I wouldn't ruin this since the shop where I bought all of it is 2 hours away
Only to be told that I don't have enough fabric to do inner braid 
So my wonderful husband drove all the way back there sat and they had enough leftover in the basement Great
I tell the same lady that we had that how it's just not like me /us to not buy extra because I measure once cut twice method
After 2hrs of looking through all that fabric she says I did get extra because she remembers I bought an extra jelly roll I go I am going to start cutting this week fingers crossed!
Have a great week
