A Little Quilting Going On

Judy has this insane thing she does every week about posting what is on your design wall. It really isn't insane, it is an incentive, lol, but for me it seems insane when I try to meet her expectations. I swear that woman has more energy than all of her egg laying chickens put together, lol.

Any way this is the project I am currently working on for my Wednesday sewin. Don't remember the name of the pattern right now, but the fabrics are batiks and I am enlarging it from a 40 x 40 inch quilt to an 80 by 80. Maybe that is why I think it is insane, lol. I love the colors in these batiks.

I have also finished my Figgy Pudding I was working on so diligently. It is off to the quilter's and I hope to get it next month so I can get it bound and on my bed for the holidays. Of course I have enlarged the pattern and it now covers my bed. I just grin everytime I look at this picture. I really love the fabric.




And that is all I have to show for now. I am working quite a bit on my embrodiery but it goes so slowly I don't have enough of it done on the second section to show yet.
Hope all of you are doing well!

They both look fantastic! Most of my ideas are insane, you know? :)

I LOVE that Figgy Pudding quilt. I have a kit to make one. I really want to get it done for the holidays too! The retro colors and designs just take me back to my childhood! :~)

My favorite of what you are doing is the quilt with the trees. I haven't been to visit you for a while. Finally did myself as a follower so I can keep track of you.

I LOVE this quilt.
I have the pattern, but didn't think about it being a bed quilt.
I may have to steal your idea and enlarge it, too. Looks like you enlarged the blocks. Can you give me some helpful hints on how you enlarged ?
Thanks for the inspiration.
