Many projects.........

I couldn't decide what I wanted to work on yesterday so I started basting this quilt and am about half done.  I have another already basted.   I never fold the quilt after I baste it so I need to start quilting on one of them soon.
Last night I was ready to sew while I watched TV so I sewed the 16 blocks for one of the Stack and Slash quilts.





Then I sewed a bunch of the spiky pieces for the medallion quilt.  All of these need pressing and then they will be trimmed to the right size.




After Christmas I bought an Amaryllis that was marked down to $3.  The blooms on the first stalk are opening and the second stalk continues to get taller.  This is the only bloom in the house right now.  I have several large buds on 2 cacti so they should be blooming in a few days.

Our amaryllis bulb grew huge leaves but no flower. I like the star/16-patch -- great border fabric!

I have two amaryllis one is short the other tall and both had two stalks of flowers on them, and huge! much better than I have had before and I bought them maybe a week before Xmas on a mark down - so pretty love them

This is a potentially "silly" question - but I don't know a lot about longarm machines, so I am asking it.

Do you basted the quilt to quilt it on a longarm? I know with some models you don't - but again, I don't know that much about them.

OR are you going to quilt this on the domestic machine?

I love the bright colors of the squares. I love the color of the spikes, Such juicy color makes me feel so much better.

Lots of fun projects to keep you busy, Wanda!

I love the bloom! I am always amazed at how quickly those spikes grow. You can almost watch them growing.

You certainly have a variety of projects going and they are all lovely.

How do you decide what you will quilt on your long arm and what you will quilt on your domestic machine? If I never had to baste again I wouldn't!

Beauty of a quilt that's in the middle of being basted, I look forward to seeing how you quilt this one.
The aboriginal dot fabric you're using with the spikes is perfect I think, I have this fabric in a few colour ways, great as a background.
