French Farmhouse progress and Christmas Lights

Well here is my week's worth of sewing with no progress until it is completed. Luckily I took lots of pics!
I love the look of the taupes and creams. They all blend into a slightly masculine look.

Lots of strip piecing. Sorta mindless but I did have to concentrate on what fabrics went where.

Here is the pattern from the Fons & Porter May/June 2009 issue.

Strip set #1

Strip set #2

And my progress on GFG piecing. I love the results!

And my progress on Christmas Lights pattern by Bonnie Hunter. I am in two more exchanges for 4-patches.

More patches. MaggieMae is always near me when I sew.

Lisa's quilt on the frame. I use the frame to pin the quilt for DSM quilting.

Ready for quilting. And it is all done now. Pics to follow.......

And three of my kitties watching the chipmunk steal birdseed.

You have surely been busy.
The neutral quilt is going to be just lovely. So soft looking. I think it is one you could put on a bed for year round and then just add other quilts on the bottom of the bed that suits the season. Could be smaller quilts that never made it to bed size.

Hi. I'm a new follower of your blog and you of mine. I love that taupe quilt. Saw it in F/P and was very tempted to give it a try, but with so many projects already on the go, I knew it would have to wait. Enjoy the quilting! Lane

I love the fabrics that you have chosen for the double Irish chain quilt. I want to revisit that (the first one was handpieced&quilted and still remain unfinish but just remain a few squares. Now using it on my bed).
