Finished UFO

Posted by Linda Christianson on August 28, 2014 at 5:04pm 1 Comment

I have finished some UFO quilts this Summer,  like two of My Grandmother's Choice (CT has a group). Now there is block of the week for  Jane Austen Album. It is free and it is a blog from Saturday Morning Post. I have pictures but it will take some time to post them. In July I had both of my eyes worked on. Aug. I got to have the right one done over, because the lens dropped through a hole. What a mess and what a mess it is to sew. Did go back to work the past four days. That is my…


Chiming in...

Okay, Pam, here goes: 

Mom and I have canned over 20 quarts of apple pie filling, 9 pints of green beans (didn't have too many), 38 pints of salsa, 15 half-pints of apple sauce, 17 pints of hamburger dill pickles, and 11 half-pints of apple butter, along with some jelly.  

Right off the bat, I burned the bejeepers out of my hand after spilling the pie filling goop as I was ladling it into jars.  Lesson learned.  It didn't really…


ATTENTION out there....

Where is everyone???? Busy time of the year, buttttt let's hear some chatter!!! I am doing more quilt planning than actual quilting. Need to get some fabric for a couple of baby quilts. We are flying down to Ft. Myers next week and I love the quilt shop in North Ft. Myers...Quilt Lover's Hangout. Making a list and checking it twice for holiday projects. Once I have the items in house then it is non-stop sewing for a few weeks. Our cooler summer makes me want to get back home to start…


Road trip

Posted by Irene Gallway on August 26, 2014 at 4:29am 9 Comments

I recently had an appointment for another blood check in Bangor. I'm doing really well as far as most of my vitals are concerned but the Dr. said my kidneys are only functioning at 30%.  She assured me not to worry that it could be normal for me. I have to go to a pathologist on the 26th of Sept. 

My friend Sally took me for the appointment and then we drove down to her aunts in Southern Maine for a few days.  Bud had a fit about me going but I went anyway.  A strange thing happened…

Working on the Peeps Quilt… 2 down, 20 to go! Since each one takes about a week…this will be quite the long term project. 

Finished the Natalia Angel block on August 23rd.  I layered her dress using a textured damask and a cotton with a finished edge.  The pattern didn’t have any…


High Fiber—UFO-a-go-go.

Posted by Peggy Stuart on August 25, 2014 at 8:30am 16 Comments

I had several irons in the fire this week, but the big news is, I'm coming down the home stretch on my Delectable Pathways quilt.

I got the top pretty much put together yesterday. I still have some appliqué to do on leaves that cross over seams. There are also two seams to sew, left open to make  appliqué…


AQS show in Grand Rapids, MI

Posted by Janet/MO on August 22, 2014 at 7:54pm 6 Comments

I went up to the AQS show this week and was able to spend the day with another QWU member and her friend.  Had a great time and enjoyed seeing the beautiful quilts.  The show was much smaller than I expected it to be, but that was okay.  Made it that much easier to see the whole thing.  I drove to MI alone and it was so nice.  I stayed with one of my sisters and it was nice to spend time with family as well as see quilts.  Can't ask for more than that.
