Giveaway!! When will I hit #40 quilt this month?

Happily I finished the 40th quilt this morning,
 October 30th at 10:42am.  
That's right people, a new record for me!

40 quilts in ONE month!!

Now to let you know who the lucky winners of the fabrics:

Doreen A wins the black & white sewing prints
guessing 10-30, 11:00am


Jeannie F wins the fatquarters 
guessing 10-30, 10:30am 

Thanks everyone for playing, it's been a GREAT month!!!!!!!

Just finished quilt #38 for the month!!

Guessing for the giveaway is now closed, 
Good Luck to all!

Quilt #32 is currently stitching out on my machine.  My October goal was to get caught up on the wonderful quilts that I have from all of my great quilters.  

Here's the prizes....

Fatquarter bundle on the left will go to the person who is closest on the negative side of guessing and the 5 one yard cuts with a 5 yd. quilt pattern will receive the bundle on the right.  

Just like the other postings let me know your best guess when I will complete quilt #40 for the month of October.  The one who gets closest in both directions wins!  It's like guessing when the baby will arrive, so you will need to give a date and time on your comment.

You can follow the progress on facebook, here's the link:

I will be closing the guessing after I complete quilt #38.  No additional guesses will qualify. I think that just about covers
 the details....let the guessing begin!

great quilts, you can find them all here:

Alex is a busy, busy girl!  Here's a couple of quilts she managed to finish and send my way.  The first quilt a fantastic wedding gift and the second I believe she's keeping for herself.  

Here's a very different quilt that came all the way from Arizona.  When Bobbi contacted me she warned me that she knew "a block was crooked" and it's all good.  Interesting quilt...

Deb over in VT sews during the winter months then passes her tops to me for the summer when she's busy, busy, busy!!  Honestly this gal does not stop!  Can't wait to see what I get next spring.

I think Dorothy in WA is my scrap busting gal!  She tells me that shes really trying to work through all of her scraps and manages to come up with these fabulous little quilts.

WOW!!  Was what I thought when I saw this very modern quilt from Elizabeth in KY.  It just had to have some modern quilting to match.  And her second quilt, FABULOUS, soft and super warm with the deep rich flannels that she used.

Karen in MN stitched up this bright little quilt! I just had to put one of my favorite designs on it.  Fun, funky and modern.

Katherine here in NH whipped up this adorable little baby quilt for a lucky new little one.  The colors aren't the best, ugh, but the fabrics were perfect!

Laila also here in NH made the two following quilts.  The blue one is an amazing layout when you might have a special print or panel, great way to lay it out.  And how fun is the second one?  It is easier than it looks.

Laura here in NH finished off these great quilts for her daughters.  Bright colors and quilting designs to match each of the girls personalities. Really, what could be more special?

Michele in NH is extremely productive with AMAZING results!  I haven't been working with her very long, but love when she drops her quilts for me to work with.  Double, triple, WOW!!!

Pam in NH pulled this quilt together for her son when she decided to redecorate his room.  Son was due home on leave and she was wanted to have his room finished.  It's a beautiful quilt, I sure hope he gets to see it soon and his Momma gets to wrap her arms around his neck and give him a big ole' Momma hug.  

Another scrap buster!  Peggy in NC used her red, whites and blue to make the first quilt.  And her second one was donated to the Orlando project.  

How wonderful are these two quilts from Sharon in VT?  The first she made for a co-work who gives her heart and soul to her patients daily.  The second a beautiful wedding gift for a special couple.

Totally modern.  Steph in CA, a friend of Alex, made this fun, fun quilt.  It just had to have a square quilting design.  I believe this is Steph's first quilt and hope there are many more to come.  She did a great job!

Fun, fun, fun!!  The fabrics in Wendy's in IN quilt were just that.  Looks like a great way to use a couple of charm packs that you might have just waiting to be stitched together in your stash.  Great quilt, Wendy!!

How many half square triangles did Ruthann in NH have to make to finish off this top?  TONS!!  But the end results - totally worth it!  How great is her quilt?

Final quilt is from Linda in CT.  Another stash buster! These scrappy quilts when combined with a solid sashing or border really looks good ladies!

Those were the fabulous quilts that kept me busy in August.  Check back soon to see a few that I managed to work with in September.

How about #30? When will that be?

Wrapped up quilt #28 for the month, comments are now closed.
Good Luck!

Okay, I've hit #20 and moving fast to that 30 quilts for the month mark!

UPDATE/Change - comments will be closed after finishing quilt #28.

This is a self proclaimed catch-up month for me and I'm all about hitting those goals!  Let's get things done before the Christmas projects start rolling in.  AND, I've got a retreat next month and going knowing all is good at the office would be FABULOUS!!

Okay, so when will that magic #30 quilt be finished?  Post your best guess as to the day and time and if guessed better than anyone else, you could call this your own....

FYI - the next batch of quilts are on the smaller side, but I do have a planned day off and a doctor's appointment,  you know those things that keep me from running the machines. This won't be the last of the fun, stay tuned for more info....

July Works

October has been self acclaimed as catch up month for me with all my quilty stuff.  Well, my business quiltly stuff.  I'm not living long enough to get "my" quilty stuff ever caught up. Know what I mean?

Okay, since I've got a couple of months worth of photos, let's get to the photos!

More photos can be seen at the other blog, here's a link:

Anne in NC sent me this beautiful and bright quilt that lit up my room for a few days.  How great is this one?

Next coming from Brandi in NH a couple of great ones.  Love the mermaid panel and of course I just had to use my favorite design Lauren on her second quilt...

Up next we have Brandy from PA.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the house quilt (which won a ribbon for Brandy at her local fair!).  And how great are the other three?  What teen wouldn't just love a skateboard quilt, the food quilt and the purple and black one just pops!!

Katherine stayed busy for a few days making these adorable quilts for her equally adorable little grands.  Pinks matched with yellow, pinks with gray for the girls and the black and red for the little man in her life.

Melynn knocked out this fabulous t-shirt quilt at one of the retreats!  It's a fund raiser for the Dartmouth Childrens Rheumatoid Arthritis Camp.  Great job!!

I'm not sure Nancy in PA machine ever stops!!  Here's a pretty blue and white one from her.

Renie passed along a few pretty striking ones that I got to help finish up.  The Christmas quilt was headed for a raffle and I'm sure it's going to fetch a lot of interest!  The bright and the black - WOW!! Also a QOV for her nephew, I believe...

Renie is a hard act to follow but Michele does it well!  Can't say enough great things about Michele and her work!  Always a pleasure to help this gal, her piecing is FANTASTIC!  I hope to someday my own quilts will be as perfectly pieced as what Michele does!

Rita's doing a pretty good job as well!  Here's a HUGE bright one from her, love the colors!

Sharon usually works with fabrics that have deep rich tones.  Here's three of her latest ones.

Wrapping up the July post with this simply amazing quilt from Ruthann.  It is anything but simple with all of those beautifully pieced half square triangles forming those spinners!  Great job!!

That wraps up the quilts for the month of July, stay tuned for August and September to be posted very soon!!
