Tumbling Rubies - Quilt Sandwich'ed!

YEAY!   My Tumbling Rubies Quilt is finally starting to look (and feel) like a real quilt!  

Last night I hunkered down and set about to start the tedious task of completing the quilt sandwich; so with my iTunes going, a full glass of coke and a bowl of chips nearby I got to work taping, smoothing, and pinning.....and pinning....and pinning.....!

I've got the top pinned, cut to size and ready to be machine quilted.  As much as I would LOVE to do some free motion quilting I think I'll keep it simple and let the fabric and the tumblers be the stars of this quilt.

I think that it will be a great lap size quilt - about 32 inches by 45 inches when the binding is done.  Perfect for snuggling under while watching TV or reading a good book or during a little cuddle time with the kids!  

Hopefully the kids will cooperate at bedtime over the next little bit and I can move this quilt from the WIP pile to the FINISHED list!!

Almost back into the swing of things!!

Spring is here and I am almost back in Action!!  I had my 'mini-surgery' earlier this week and its been so nice to be able to see almost perfectly again!

I can't wait to get back to spending some quality time with my sewing machine - I did manage to get the quilt sandwich done for the Tumbling Rubies quilt but I haven't uploaded the pictures from my camera  yet.

Hopefully I'll be able to update the blog by the end of this weekend with some quilting/sewing goodness and pictures!!

Thank you for stopping by!

I'm Back - Briefly!! ;)

Oh my goodness, I can't believe how funny it is that I do a post about finding a new addiction and then I do NOT blog for almost an entire month!  I need to clarify that I haven't been pinning everything that I can get my hands on - I promise!

I've actually had a pretty rough time with my eye the past month (somehow I managed to have a Corneal Abrasion - my cornea was swollen and almost infected - not fun) and doing anything on my sewing machine just made my eye really really sore.  Thankfully after 4 eye doctor's visits and two different medications it looks like I'm finally on the mend and might actually be able to get back to sewing in the next few days.

Thank you for sticking with me in my absence the last month - hopefully Google Friend Connect will still bring you here - I love my visitors.  I'm hoping to get back into the sewing swing of things soon and be able to finish up quite a few of my WIPs.
