Lots of Quilting Going on

I'm almost finished with the current rag quilt class that's at the sewing machine.  I have four more rag quilt classes and a shelf sitter class that are on the drawing table. I ordered two sets of log cabin quilt block kits to make my husband a quilt from. What a time saver! I've always wanted to make one of these quilts so when I found these kits from I went ahead and ordered them. I completed one block just to see what I had gotten myself into and it was very simple. You
can see my first finished block below.

I'm continuing to work steadily on my dad's quilt. I hope to have an update photo to show you all shortly. A very nice lady that I met at Hancock Fabric a couple of weeks ago dropped off her pieced quilt top and backing for me to quilt for her granddaughter. She actually pieced the backing! I love it! I've recently read an article about pieced backings but this is the first time I've seen one. I should have this one done in about two weeks since she has already done most of the work. The quilting will be done on the machine but I want to bind it by hand.

That's my week in crafts. I hope all of you have a nice weekend.
