Little Quilt

Posted on July 24, 2016 at 4:44am 8 Comments

A nearby quilt shop offers a chance to get some brush ups on embroidery skills once a month.  $15 for the entire year, can you believe it.  I've been working on some small projects while I'm there.  This is my latest.  It will be a birthday gift for my SIL.…


Finished and delivered...

Late last summer I posted a question about using football jerseys in a quilt.  Oh, how I did not want to use them in a quilt, put my niece and sister kept telling me I could do it.  What an easy target I was.  I finished that darn quilt a few weeks ago, and had the chance to deliver it this past weekend, at a family wedding.  The quilt looks so simple that I am sure they will never understand what went into making it.  Backing the mesh fabrics, trying to stitch anywhere near the rubbery…


Birthday gift...

My granddaughter is turning 5 in a few weeks, and has always had a thing for mermaids.  I have a feeling she will love snuggling down into this mermaid bag with one of her dolls.…

My husband has a birthday on the 23rd, and I have been scrambling to get this quilt done for him.  I think it will be a hit.  Badger men's basketball plays on the 23rd, so he can give it a test run.  Won't be quite the same though without Bo Ryan at the helm.  Now I'd best finish up a few little Christmas gifts.

Merry Christmas to all of you!  Hope you cherish every minute of time you get with family and friends.…

Our annual quilt group Christmas party is tomorrow.  We will have a gift exchange, lots of yummy goodies, a hot chocolate bar, and always bring donations for our food pantry.  It should be fun.  Each year I have been making a thank you gift for the gals that come.  This is what I did for this year.  Just finished filling them with goodies.…

Thank you Barb for the nice compliment concerning my new sewing room.  I'm glad it inspired you.  I was sad leaving my old room at the house but am content in my new space.  I do miss my office desk that I had in my sewing room.  I am truly content in this small apartment. I never thought I would be.  I'm good at accepting my circumstances.  It makes it easy to adjust when your not grieving over what you had before.  I have more time to play now as the house had 7 large rooms to clean.  I can clean this whole place in the time it took to do one room at the house.  Yesterday I helped plant potatoes in the community garden here in the complex.  I'm glad it's raining today. lol

I'm hoping for the all clear signal on my arm also.  The last X Ray showed new bone filling in the break. The cords in my wrist have tightened with the hand brace on so I have some work to do exercising it to get the strength back into it.  I can hardly wait to get back to my machines and get my kitchen and living room curtains made.

Hi Barb, I agree that a little color in our new apartment is going to put a homey touch to it.  It almost blinded me it's all so white.  I found enough red fabric in my stash to make tab curtains for my sewing room.  I can go a little "wild" there as opposed to the other rooms.  lol

Hello Barb. Thanks for the comment. This stash dent doesn't seem to be very obvious yet. Hopefully it will soon or I'm in trouble. No matter how organized I try to be I keep running out of room for fabric. Must stop shopping??? Probably not going to happen anytime soon. Having fun with the string quilt using up thinner strips of fabric. Kind of relaxing don't have to think too much when doing it. Just pick a strip and stitch it on.hope you had a nice day.

I was just looking at your bowl, how do you attach the cord circles to the outside of the bowl, and if you are using glue, what kind of glue do you use?

Hi Barb, thanks for the info.  I was buying the cord at Walmart but it was not the shiny diamond kind.  It was dull and plain and was cotton covered polypropalene but when I went two days ago they didn't have any, so I've found another place to buy it, but I have to check to see that it's the right kind.  I know that JoAnns carries it but it's more expensive.  I'll let you know what I find out!

Hi Barb:  I may be a good quilter, but not so great with the computer.  I've been on QWU for years now and just found where the replies to my blog posts were <G>.  Thanks for your kind words.  I'm fixated on Craftsy at the moment.  Normally I do pretty serious applique projects.  But this year I've had some health issues to deal with (eyes) and it's given me a jolt.  I need to have some fun again.  So with all these quilts in the queue to be finished, I'm going to go Modern for a bit and see what I can turn out.  Joe's got a wonderful way about him.  He's serious, but with a twinkle in his eye.  My husband was listening to Joe while I was watching Craftsy one day and suggested it was time I did something to have some fun again.  They're both right.  So things may change a bit for me...not a lot..I do love applique...but a little fun doing some modern quilting is just the ticket for a cold winter day.  Before you know it, it'll be Spring and we'll wonder where the winter went to <LOL>

Thank you, Barb, for your kind comments on my crazy quilt. Family history means a lot to me and I try to incorporate into my quilts when I can. I hope it's a way I can pass it on to the next generation. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
