Chandelier Baby Quilt

I have another quilt top to show!
Hubs had work stuff going till late this eve so
I spent almost all day in the sewing room.

I shouldn't take pics at night as they're never very clear
but I'm just so happy to share that it's already done!
I can get a better pic after I quilt it up.
Our new granddaughter will not be arriving until
late October but I'll quilt it up next week
and get it completely checked off the list.

This picture at least shows the fabrics a little better.

By the way, here's a great math reference
to file away for setting on-point quilts:

So what's next on the agenda?

Well it's football season and hubs is now left
with only me to watch with him so, instead
of sneaking off to the sewing room on weekend
afternoons, I'll need to work out ways to get
some quilting done in front of the tv.  I'll
probably be setting a folding table up in our
living room every weekend but I'm sure open
to any other simpler ideas.

The first order of quilty-football-watching will be
to work on my grandson's I-Spy quilt.
Several years ago I made one for a friend's son.
I cut out plenty of extras, knowing I'd be making
another soon so that has given me a good start.
Fussy cutting squares seems like a good activity
for in front of the tv.

If things continue to go as they have been, I'll
also be starting on the season's first fall quilt
next week.  I have several ideas in mind (ie above),
but no matter what, there will definitely be some
stash-busting going on.
The shop hop is just weeks away and my
fabric hutch currently has NO VACANCY.
Well, let the fabric purge begin!

My fall pins and cushion are all ready to go.

Fall goodness is beginning to pop up all over.

Just look at these beauties I picked today!

Happy weekend quilting!

Love the baby quilt top! Great job on picking those fabrics from the focus one.....this one is going to be really nice. Yes, to watch and sew or cut up fabric I set up a small folding table from the sewing room. You can get a lot done in a 4 hour game:)

I have a sewing table in the family room. That way I can join in TV watching with hubby some, instead of hiding away in my sewing room alone.
