Stitching & Quilting

I have been spending time this week and last stitching on my piece for my Fair & Square partner on the 4th of July exchange. I can not show a pic until she has received it. I already have another partner for my Round 7 exchange and have been searching for a pattern to stitch. I really like this exchange. If you are interested in joining follow the link in the side bar.

Sewing. I have one finished quilt top and started another for my youngest son. I love sewing. I have a couple of kits I want to cut out and sew up. My mom is shopping for a quilting machine. So by the time she gets one bought I should have plenty of quilts to try out her new machine.
This is some Debbie Mumm fabric I picked up and found this pattern in a quilt magazine.

Off to stitch! Happy Stitching/Sewing everyone.

Finally a finish

Here is my latest finish. I stitched this for my MIL but then my husband asked me to stitch another one all in pink shades to match the fabric. So I guess this one is mine. I haven't decided how to finish it yet.

Besides stitching I have been quilting. I have one quilt ready to be quilted and binded and another one cut out and ready to sew. I have really enjoyed looking at all the quilt blogs out there. I love looking at all the quilts people make. And even those who are talented enough to design their own quilt patterns to sell.

I also signed up for Fair and Square and am stitching my first set of squares. It is an exchange. I will add a link to the side for those who are interested in it. You stitch a 50 x 50 stitch count block of the round and then the other has your name stitched on it. The first one I am stitching is for the 4th of July round. I am very excited about this experience. You should see all the wonderful squares that have already been exchanged.
