What's UP Wednesday?!

We started something similar to this on a recent online group and had quite a bit of FUN with it soooo, thought I'd continue on here, just to share a 'few' things Miss Betty & I have been up to lately.  Soooo, here we go!

It's been a very busy summer!  Between dodging thunderstorms and weeding and mowing when it's NOT raining and storming - even lost one of my primary notebooks during one of our recent lightning storms, managed to get a few projects started and even finished.

First is a patriotic quilt top one of our Volunteer Members of our East Central IL QOV Group, Doris, started the interior, we added borders and readied for quilting:

A Doris original - ready to be quilted into a QOV!

This 'surprise' quilt is currently on the frame, almost finished!  This is a wedding/anniversary quilt for a very special bride & groom...and it's a Surprise!  So, you won't get to see the BIG reveal until 'after' it's been presented ;-)

Just a 'peak' of this Surprise quilt ;-)

Once this quilt is off the frame, a very special T-shirt quilt will take its place asap, since the intended starts college in less than 2 weeks...yikes!

LOTS of piecing of quilt tops and Mystery Quilt(s) are currently in various stages of progress:

Marathon of strip-piecing

ALL the piecing paid off...

Enough blocks and panels to create at least TEN (10) patriotic quilts for our Vets!

...and a few embroidered Eagle blocks thrown in for good measure ;-)

We need a few more to begin assembly!

Plenty of quilt tops are ready and awaiting to be ALL bordered out - here's a few we are working on:

Borders cut for nine (9) quilt tops, three (3) borders per top = 27 borders!

And the final clue to this Patriotic Mystery has just been released!

Patriotic Mystery ready to be finished - hopefully over the weekend...

Time to sew & quilt!
