#11 Charity Quilt:  Diamonds in a Square.  The pictures didn't take.  It is always something.

#11 Charity Quilt: Diamonds in a Square.  It has been turned in so I can't do anything about not getting a picture.  i'll just have to live with it.

#12 Charity Quilt:  French Farm.  I did the other sheep block.  So now I just have the other rabbit block and the borders to do.  It is progressing nicely.

Finished the rabbit block.  It isn't the best one of the bunch.  Now I've chosen the border quilt pattern and I'm practicing it in my sketchbook.  I'm not sure about it but i'm going to try it.

#12 Charity Quilt:  French Farm.  Did one quarter of the border today.  I'm glad I'm using thread the same color as the fabric so it doesn't show.  But at least I'm getting it done.

#12 Charity Quilt.  French Farm.  Finished the second side and am ready to start the 3rd butterfly.  I didn't leave myself much room so I guess this one will be on the thin side.  And this long side seems really thin.  I guess that means it will go fast.

#12 Charity Quilt.  French Farm.  the third side did go quickly and I did manage to get the butterfly in there so all is good.  I have one border, the label, binding, and washing to do on this one before it is complete.  Oh, and get a picture this time.

#12 Charity Quilt.  French Farm.  I ran out of bobbin close to the end.  And had trouble winding the new one.  I started getting antsy so I'll wait to finish until after I've calmed down.

#12 Charity Quilt.  French Farm.  The binding wasn't put together so i have ironed it flat.  Seamed all the pieces together.  And now it is ready to be folded and ironed the second time.  One more step than intended but that is alright.

#12 Charity Quilt.  I'm half way around the back side so I'm getting there.  It's just that this constipation hurts and saps my strength.

#12 Charity Quilt.  I finished binding the back now it is glueing and ironing the front and then top stitching it down.  I think I'll do that tomorrow.

#12 Charity Quilt.  I did the glueing and ironing.  Had trouble with many little bobbles this time.  But I'm soldiering on.  I have the adjustable stitch in the ditch foot on and I'm almost ready to go.  I hope I have enough thread of the right color.

I finished the sewing and it is in the washing machine.  I've set up the camera and tripod so it is ready for it's photo shoot.  i'm glad to be done with it.  I learned a lot about boo-boo's.

#13 Charity Quilt.  Yellow Yo-Yo is back on the cutting table and ready to go.  I wish I could figure out a way to work on it on the go since it is all hand work but I can't seem to visualize it.

#13 Charity Quilt:  Yellow Yo-Yo Repair.  Row one done again.  I got turned around and couldn't figure out where I was working before so I just started again.  So row one is finished and row two is started.

#13.  I have marked several rows with the thought that I'll be able to find them and work on them when I am out and about.  We'll see how that works.

As I think about this the truth is I could do this on machine.  But everything is hand done so maybe that would be a bad idea?  I'm doing the backing by machine that's for sure.  No way would I attempt to hand sew a french seam or 10 or 20.
