The Joys and Treasures of a Quilt Shop Owner

Or should this Blog Post be entitled :
The Pressures and Treasures
The UFOs (Unfinished Objects)
The Current Passions
What Possessed her to Start So Many
Oh My Goodness
 Will They Ever Get Finished?

These are all projects currently on the go!
And yes they will all get finished!!!!

This one is closest to finishing.

Just needs the rest of the binding hand stitched down and hanging sleeve added.
It is the first of my "100 Modern Quilt Blocks" from my 2014 Breakfast Club.

That quilt only used 75 of the blocks, so this one had to be made too!

It needs the rest of the chunky quilting around the border an then binding.

Then there is my Patchwork of the Crosses.
It needs three more rows of squares and cream honeycombs around
three sides.

One side is done ready to be trimmed off straight and a binding added. I think the binding will be the same cream background fabric - what do you think?

Next is this year's Breakfast Club's Blocks.
I have six of the fifteen made. 

Missy the cat seems to like these ones best!

Finally there are our Shop Hop Quilt Blocks.
This quilt is made in French General fabrics and there is a surprise 
coming on the solid units within the blocks so watch this space.

So I really had better get off this computer and get stitching!!
Back soon with a progress report or maybe even another project started. 
Oh No I hear you say.

But being a Quilt Shop Owner is addictive or compulsive and just plain fun every day.
