Time to Catch Up

Mr. Bailey got a haircut.  What a difference from the teddy bear looking pooch!  He can see so much better and so much easier on us for grooming.
He is busy, very busy and at nearly five months old already learning so much.
How cute are these?!  My friend Karen of Log Cabin Quilter gifted these to me on her visit a few weeks ago.  Her husband is so sweet too!
I don't always post the little gifts I find tucked in quilt tops I receive or after as surprise bonus mail but I am this one!  Donna had me quilt her beauty below and then this packet arrived unexpectedly.  My mind in overdrive as to how did I forget she was sending another top.  She really surprised me with my first holiday card and beautiful fabrics to get my own holiday project started.  Thank you Donna!
Here's her quilt top.  This matches my home!
Yummy! 
Love these flowers I quilted on Cyndi's.
Bread Basket quilting too.
Love, love, love the back!
Fall quilting for Lorene.
Shannon's very first quilt...I do believe I've got her hooked.
Then there is Betty's gorgeous antique quilt with my Baptist Fans.  This top belonged to her Great Great Grandmother.  Betty spent many hours repairing this top from 1800's.

Quilts have been arriving as everyone seems to be getting ready to gift for holiday season.  Are you ready?  As a reminder I have a small quilt special posted in previous post....check it out!

I'll bet you are really enjoying Bailey around the house all day. He looks so handsome with his new haircut!

Your frosting looks wonderful. Those Baptist fans are wonderful on both quilts and the flowers - darling! Nice work by both you and the quilters.

I LOVE the baptist fans! It is perfect for both quilts, but especially suitable for the antique.

What a handsome lad with his new haircut. I love the baptist fan and should have that done on my next postage stamp quilt. I just LOVE the antique quilt - how special!

Kaaren said...

Love those Baptist fans. Seems like you're doing quite a few since you did my "Glory Bound". It's my favorite edge-to-edge quilting design.

Mr. Bailey is way too cute. I think the dog lovers among us need more pics.

Gorgeous quilting as always, Mary. There isn't one I wouldn't love in my home!

I am drooling over the beautiful quilting--especially the Baptist Fans--and they look amazing on the antique top!
Mr. Bailey looks pretty spiffy--and pretty talented. : )

Oh wow you can really see how big Bailey is getting now. Smart guy already catching a frisbee. I'm so happy he is bringing you all so much joy.

Karen gave you some nice gifts. I love seeing her work on her blog....we live a couple of hours from each other but have never met.

The rest of your post is full of some delicious frosting. Those are some lucky quilt owners.

What wonderful quilts! I just love the Baptist fans. And Mr Bailey~ handsome indeed! Have a happy day!

Vivian said...

I always enjoy seeing your work, your customers' projects, and the goings-on in your life. Thanks for the photos of the Baptist fans. I may stitch those on a top I finished lately. I appreciate seeing the finished look, a subtle and helpful bit of encouragement from a pro to a novice.
Your work is exquisite, as always, Mary. Your quilting designs complement the piecing and the look of the quilt tops.
