What can I say?  It has been over two months since my last blog.  I am a lame blogger.  Does this mean I really do have a life?  Maybe.  Or maybe, I like IG better.  More pictures, less words.  Typing takes all of my fingers, an engaged brain, some grammar and spelling.  Snapping a pic on my iPhone with hashtag is much easier.

The up side is I have a few finishes to post.  The down side is taking the time and actually figuring out where they are on the hard drive, or phone, and getting the damn (yes damn) Blogger to post them.

So here is a picture of the finished baby quilt shown here in August:
The fabric is A Beautiful Thing by Riley Blake Designs.
The back:

Another Baby Girl Quilt finished:

And the back:
The fabric is Butterfly Dance by Riley Blake Designs.  What can I say?  It was a bright sunny day!

Perhaps this is what has kept me distracted and unblog worthy:

Yes, Space Dust.  There was a quilt along for that I just couldn't resist on IG.  I used my FQ bundle of Fox Field.  This quilt is mainly paper pieced and much harder than it looks.  I practiced my free motion swirls (thank Gawd I got the computer for that long arm) and did lots of ruler work.  And as you can see, it is a nice, big quilt.

An up closer shot:
Oh I do love me some Tula!

On that note, I will end this post with some more Tula eye candy.  At least, I think so!

Prince Charming!  I have been wanting to make this quilt for quite some time.  The backing has not been made yet as I have had other quilts ahead of this one to quilt.  After all, Christmas is only 51 days away.  

There are other things I can't quite post yet.  And the results of our local quilt show that I will post later.  And maybe a pattern for a HST Christmas quilt.  But don't hold your breath.
