Accumulated quilt stuff

Posted on May 18, 2020 at 1:46pm 3 Comments

Lately I have been in the mood to start going through my quilt room as well as my 2nd bedroom where I store some of my  quilt stuff, but mostly yarn, to get more of an idea of what I have.  I don't know whether to feel happy that I probably don't need to buy anything other than thread, batting  and stabilizer (for my embroidery machine) for the next several  years or guilty because I have so much stuff!  I found kits I had forgotten I even had.  That makes me feel guilty.  

I did get…

Happy Mother's Day

Posted on May 10, 2020 at 8:49am 7 Comments

This year Mother's Day is going to be very different for a lot of us.  Never thought I would see the day that the entire world would be suffering from such a horrible pandemic!  Since I can't spend the day with my daughter & her family, I am going to spend the majority of it in my sewing room.  

Happy International Quilters Day

I hope everyone has a chance to do at least a little bit of quilting today.  I certainly didn't need another project to work on, but I decided to go ahead and participate in Edyta Sitar's 2020 mystery that started yesterday.  So I'm going to spend part of today working on block #2.  Need 8 of them, but they should be fairly quick to make.

Crazy Quilt purse

Posted on March 9, 2020 at 3:34pm 9 Comments

I finished another purse today.  The design is from Kreative Kiwi, which is a machine embroidery site from New Zeeland.  I made the front & back using my embroidery machine & then assembled the purse using my regular sewing machine.  I decided to add the heart shaped button to make the flap lay down flatter.  The fabrics were purchased in 2007 and were part of a line that promoted ovarian cancer research.  …

Scrap Happy Purse

Posted on February 24, 2020 at 12:19pm 9 Comments

A few months ago I went to an open house put on by Renee  Nanneman with Need'l Love and I found this really cute purse pattern.  I decided it was time to make one for myself and just finished putting on the handles a little bit ago.   The pattern is the Scrap Happy Purse by Amanda Jean Nyberg.  After I finished the gussets I realized I had oriented my scraps vertically instead of horizontally like she did in the pattern, but I don't think it made any difference.  It was an easy "mistake" to…

Janet, I've been looking through Barbara Brackman's Encycopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns, and I believe I've found the block that is in the most recent blue and white signature quilt.  It has 3 names:  Four Points (according to Ladies Art Company), Four Point (Household Journal), and Lattice and Square (Nancy Cabot).  The one in the book is the reverse of mine (lights and darks are opposite), but the block is the same.  It is #2423 in her book, found on page 305.  The pattern category is "Square in a Square".   (I apologize for the large format of the picture.  I don't know what has changed on the QWU picture format, but I can't get pictures to load the same way I used to.)

Janet,  That's so nice!  It would be well worth the money, but I'm afraid I'll have to let it go to someone else this time.  

Hope all is well.  You are finishing up some great projects.  It should motivate me to keep moving on mine.

Janet, I mailing two blocks tomorrow.  Thank you so much for doing this.

I'd love to send you a block. Thank you for doing this.

Janet, of course I'll participate! Are you saying you need a 6.5" block or anything between 6 and 12"?

It's too easy to confuse me, woman!!

Janet, 

The grandsons are doing well.  They are so fun!  The oldest is 4, the one that was a micro premie is going to be 2 in July and is a beefy little guy, and the latest one is 9 months old and walking already.  I've been shopping my stash for the baby quilts, and that has been fun.  It feels good to use up (or at least make an attempt) what I have.  Since I never bought much yardage of any one fabric, it forces me to be creative with patterns and borders.  Something that doesn't come easily to me.  I love seeing your finished projects.  That HAS to feel so good!

Happy New Year!  We have had around 10" snow and subzero temps.  It always seems colder when the when blows.  Keep warm!  Great time to quilt.  (Well, I guess anytime is a great time to quilt...)  :D

Janet, I posted a picture of GS#2 (the preemie who is now 18 months) on the main page under the GS#3 post.  He's doing really well.  Seems to be on track or ahead developmentally and has no health or learning issues.  Just a robust, healthy little guy, for which we are very thankful.  

I'm working on making apple butter from applesauce today.  It is a crock pot recipe.  The apples we use (from a neighbor's tree) seem to be very sweet, so I was glad to find a recipe that doesn't add extra sugar.  I'm hoping it turns out well (first time using this method/recipe) so I can use it for gifts.
