The perfect jeans....

or at least "Knip magazine" says so and I have to agree with them. Only the front is not perfect, a bit leftover fabric there, but that can also be my sewing and not the pattern. Done with my lockmachine and sewing machine.

Next is sewing cloths for two babyboys. Pics will probaly follow tomorrow.

A very good report for this week. Only the new bom block came in and I used 5 meter of backing for my gobble quilt, which I should be quilting soon.
There are no orders coming in, but this week will also not be filled with quilting stuff as I plan to work on some cloths. So probaly not will there be a lot happening on the stashbusting front. But I plan to make fabric selections for my sscs gift that has to be made soon and for a quilt for my colleague.

Little red riding hood

I had big problems to take it out of my q-snaps to make the picture as I am just addicted, but had to do my monthly update. I have finished 4!!!! pages this month. I think I am crazy for sure to stitch that much. Am curious how many pages will be finished next month.

I finished the top of my gobble gobble quilt. It is by the pattern sweet escape from Miss Rosie and uses 2 layer cakes and a bit of yardage. I did it with Gobble Gobble. I love how it came out.
Next is to finish the top of 40T.

A finish

Due to my mother Good Fortune was finished last weekend. She has hand quilted it for me and also put the binding on it. I love my mother very much. Thanks Mom!!!. I love how it turned out very much. She has done a really good job on it and now Cindy Lou Who is with her to get quilted. I am sure I will get it back soon. She is a very fast quilter.
Than another quilt which I think I will not finish totally as my cat loves all quilts that have no binding on it. The quilting is already finished for a few days, but my cat never lets have it to put on the binding.
Tomorrow I am almost sure I will show a new top as my gobble gobble quilt is going really great. I think it is now 3/4 finished. Also Little red riding hood is growing fast, 3 pages finished for this month already.

Oktober Schnibbles

This weekend I took the fabric for the oktober schnibbles with me to Nieuwkerke to cut everything, so that I could sew it when I came home. But Lutgart was so nice to let me use her sewing machine and so the top was finished on Saturday already. Now just have to see how to quilt it. It is done with two charmpacks from fig and plum and some yardage.
The Gobble Gobble quilt is also going great. Yesterday I finished the first 3 blocks.

Quilting retreat

Tomorrow I will hop in the car and go to Nieuwkerke in Belgium to this house with 20 other woman from the Netherlands and Belgium. I am sure we will have a lot of fun. I hope to show a lot on monday, hope to have cut everything for two new quilts than, that only sewing is there to do for both and off course both are miss rosies quilt co. patterns.

The new quilt will be Cindy Lou Who. I will do this one with Fig and Plum. Hope it will look good in the end, we will see I hope soon.

Than this week I have been sewing on the next BOM block. I am very late in making it, well at least for me. Hope the next one will be done sooner.

And here the other quilt I will be cutting this weekend, which is sweet escape with Gobble Gobble fabrics.

Than I am very sad to say, but it is the first time I am really late for an exchange, but life has been so busy that I haven't had time to go to the postoffice, I will put in some extra's. I hope she will like the little bag I made for her.
