is it ok if i come out and play along today?

 officially speaking, I didn't do any RSC sewing this week, but I was busy with other stuff. (Tuesday we butchered all 25 of our turkeys- they weighed from 17lb. all the way up to 30lb. +. our bird for Thanksgiving dinner was 27lb.- plenty for 6 people!)
 

my friend asked me to make her a baby quilt for her newest great-granddaughter. I've had this jelly roll for a while- and it's sort of rainbow-y, too! (pattern here)


my DWR quilt is done! I'm happy with how it turned out, and it was definitely not as hard (or twiddly!) as I thought it would be. ( I will iron it soon, I promise!)


it's about a double size, and I plan to bind it in the gold solid. for now the plan for this quilt is to go to one of the MCC auctions, unless one of my children falls in love and claims it...

more gorgeous quilts here!

Lovely baby quilt Jennifer. Did it really all come from one jelly roll? That looks super quick to make, and the result is stunning! Congratulations on the DWR top; I am encouraged by your saying it wasn't fiddly; I might just try one too!

Butchering is a lot of work! Are you done for the winter?

Two great finishes. You can be proud of the DWR and the colors blend so nicely. Congratulations!

Butchering all those turkeys was a lot of work! I know it! Beautiful DWR quilt. The little jelly roll quilt is fun too. Great progress!

That's a lot of turkeys for one day! I hope you have a plucker. 8)
Congrats on finishing the DWR! I started one in my teens, then gave it (unfinished) to my sister-in-law when I was in my 30s because I was sick of looking at it. (It was about 80% done, but I didn't love it anymore...) So I know what a magnum opus it is!
Love the baby quilt, too! Such a happy quilt!

27 pound turkey? Yikes, that is a big one. Lovely DWR.

Beautiful baby quilt, it's definitely a rainbow of colors. Congrats on finishing up the Wedding Ring top. That pattern still intimidates me, your version turned out beautifully.

WOW! I love the colors and prints in your rainbow baby quilt. I've been eyeing that tutorial for years. I need a baby quilt and think I'll give it a try.
