It's June already!

How time flies when we keep busy. I can't remember my last blog post. It's been a while. I've been busy working on quilt tops for family and vacation home. Some are ready for quilting and a few(I'm not saying how many) are not. I have 2 dresses to put zippers in and hem before the end of the month, very doable, and a couple of baby quilts in mid piecing stage. I'm not bored just drawn outside by the nice days we have been enjoying.

Winter was busy with some travel vacation time. I sis try… Continue

lost wip found

you know you have too much stuff in your quilting room when you have been looking for a project for months then discover it's been under your nose the whole time.  Today i was cutting strips for a quilt project and was putting some away for another time when a certain container caught my eye. Lo and behold it's the very project I could not find for many months, just sitting there laughing at me, or so it seemed. Guess it is time for spring cleaning and sorting for my sewing room or maybe…

a little thank you

Posted on March 15, 2015 at 3:30pm 4 Comments

First thank you to all the positive feed back from my post about lay last post. I have got the blocks pieced to my new sashings and it is looking pretty good. I'm working on the borders next. When they are on I will try to post a picture. Thanks to all for the encouraging words. Helped to motivate me to keep plugging along with it. And yes I'm sure my DD will love it and not notice the lost points.

A lesson learned

You would think that after quilting all these years I would know better than to try to do it when I am tired. Well not me. I was tired and cranky and the finished blocks were not all the same size so instead of thinking, wait till tomorrow and take the two smaller ones apart and make the seams a bit narrower I did a really dumb thing and trimmed them all down to the smallest size. Loosing a bunch of points in the process and getting so fed up I was ready to toss the whole bunch. The only…

Cheryl, thanks for commenting on the baby quilt.  It was a fun, little project.  
I've been enjoying scrolling through your pictures this morning.  Very nice work.  Hope you are having a nice summer.

Hi Cheryl,

Snow's almost gone, but the weather is sure fickle.  Sun is out right now, but the wind is blowing rather hard. I am just working on an embroidery project at the moment and haven't been able to even sit on the sewing machine to do some piecing. I'm looking forward to having my left shoulder fully functional again.

Take care and hope for Spring to really stay around.

O I see you love bags and old machines too. Hope your Bonnie quilts does came out pretty. My second one with this year mystery came out more fun using all the fish left over from other quilts. Still have to take pictures and quilt it.

My two string quilts were big lap size. One I gave as a wedding gift, she got to pick from my pile of quilts and the string quilt was her choice. Which was quilted in orange, her husband  favorite color. I do Bonnie Hunter quilts, they are all very heavy queen size, from all the small pieces. She also did have quilt with strings, ocean Bay about four years ago as the mystery. The blocks just all the same, like shades of white strips for the triangles, then shades of red. Not fast for me. I have yet to string all the whites.

Hi Cheryl - thanks for the nice welcome message. Yes, I did make the quilt you mentioned. You can see a better photo of it on my profile page photos.  I made it for my husband - it is hand appliquéd and hand quilted. Yes, I'm crazy but I love the handwork.  I am warming up to machine quilting though after 20 years of so of dislike. I love all the wonderful thread colors available.  And the quilts get done MUCH faster!

Hope your week is going well. Take care!
