November AYLF Goal met!

This month flew by as it's hunting season.  I don't get much time at home, but thanks to my dad and Ann I got a chance to quilt on Sat. I was able to quilt both of the quilts I'm making for our friends kids for Christmas.  My goal was to get the tops done, so it's amazing to have them quilted as well.
For the new little boy I made this fat quarter friendly quilt using  I Love Puppies by Heather Mulder Peterson. I used a squiggly minkee on the back. It's quilted with a large meander.
I used Horizon for this modern quilt. I love the solid background and it had little hearts on it. I quilted it with a loop.  I used a lavender minkee on the back.

November AYLF Goal

Since the last few months have been a bit slow, I'm hopeful that I'll be able to get more done in Nov.  Paul starts hunting next weekend,  so I'll be a hunters widow,  but I'll also have the kids. My goal is to finish the quilt tops for a couple kids we know. I finished the marbles quilt top last night, so tonight I worked on the little girls modern quilt. It uses 2 charm packs and lots of background.  I probably have 2 seams left, but it's late. If the month goes really well I'll get them quilted, but right now tops are my goal. I'm doing much better at posting on Instagram and Facebook,  so look for me as @moneikquilts to see my accomplishments.
