This week's progress and Stunning Stitching Sunday

I'm happy to report that I actually got to spend some time in my studio this past week. Boy did it feel great.
I only had a little time on Wednesday afternoon before I had to pick the kidlets up from camp so I added borders to the Disney Villains panel.  Now I need to decide how to quilt it.  Any suggestions?
Friday was productive too although I only got one smaller task done.  It had a lot of pieced. This is a sneak peak of the mini quilt I'm making for the Spooktacular Mini Swap 15 on Instagram.  The top is done and again I'm trying to decide how to quilt it.
Yesterday the munchkins made a fort in the playroom/library using the coffee table and my Castles on the Horizon quilt that I made for the Moda Bake Shop. (I so love the morning sun that streams through the front windows).
Someone else was enjoying the morning rays. Mr. Juno is completely at home now.
Of course right after I captured this picture, he got up and moved. I guess I was annoying him with all the camera clicking.
Today the fort morphed and got bigger. As you can see, Jammer used the rainbow strings quilt made for me by Karma Willow Designs and my Thistles and Vines quilt (which is the first quilt I made ever).
He said it has 3 sections for Sunshine, one for him and one for storage.  Silly boy.
Oh and BTW Sunshine finally lost her first upper tooth. She likes putting a straw in the gap.
Of course you really want to see all the quilty goodness I've come across lately.
I hope you enjoy today's showcase and please remember to click through the links to each quilter's blog and show them how much you appreciate all that they share with the quilting world.

Last but not least, I'm going to make another plug for the Kate Spain Christmas Charm Swap. There are still a few spots available so if you've been waiting to join in the fun, stop waiting and join now.
The packages of charms have started to arrive and very soon this bin will be overflowing with quilty goodness.  Then the fun part of opening each stack and sorting through the gorgeous charms can commence.
Enjoy your Sunday.  Another work weeks starts all too soon.

Oh, those photos bring back the memories....forts made of quilts plus fold out sofa beds, and the cushions,!

The days of "forts" here have slipped into the shadows, sadly. They were such wonderful times. Thanks so much for the happy photos (and including a "Hero"!!!!!).

My fabric should arrive this excited! Oh the kids bring cherished summer memories back! LOVE their expanding tent!

those kids have great taste in quilts (just saying) -- I often tell my husband I'm going to make a blanket fort and lock him out. Quilt fortress would be a great name for a sewing room
