Getting close!!

Posted on July 16, 2011 at 2:46pm 8 Comments

I'm getting close to done on my wall hanging.  I only have 4 more snowflakes to sew on and I can trim and add binding.  I'm thinking about adding a white piping to the binding.  I'll see what it might look like when I get the snowflakes done.



all the leaves and one flower

I'm real happy with the way the leaves turned out.  I'm starting on the flowers now and I think I'm really going to like them too.

Some of the details, the vine is three strands of pearl cotton held together and zig zagged down.  The top is already quilted.  The leaves and the flowers are fused with Wonder Under.  I used a layer of…


40 leaves!

I don't think 67 is going to be enough!  I'm real happy with how it looks though.  I changed some of the stems at the bottom and I'm going to add another full vine coming off the left side near the short one and running over to the right, below the one that's already there.

I love the way this is starting to look!  I only have the first two branches of the vine done.  This is the top right corner.  A flower goes over the spot where the three branches come together.…


back up and punt

So I finally have time to get back to work on my wall hanging.  I'm piecing the border blocks.  I get to step three and I don't have the fabrics for the block corners.  This pattern was written in steps instead of giving all the cutting instructions at the beginning.  So I look thru every bin and drawer in my room and I don't even find a smidge of the main fabrics.  The only one I have is the dark purple for the binding but… Continue

I know what you mean. It IS a long way between population centers in this part of the world, but we kind of like it that way. I suppose we don't know what we're missing in the way of services, eating places, and shopping. We hope to have green grass one of these days. So far, all we've had is a lot of white stuff. :)

Yes, I have been to the shop in Leoti. A couple of other ladies and I are participating in the Buck a Block there, so we go there once a month, although we just started in Feb. They even gave us the first 5 blocks we missed at $1 each, so that was awesome. We just had to have all 5 done when we went back in March. It is a really nice shop too, and the ladies that run it are really nice. Not quite as much fabric as Colby, but I like what they have. Bought stuff for an Easter wall hanging there the first of March, but haven't started on it. I did get to sew on my new Janome yesterday afternoon and I do like it. It will take some getting used to though.

Sounds like you live in the same area as I do--except I'm on the northern edge of the middle of nowhere. The weather channel seem to forget we exist out here!!
Congrats on your new machine. Hope you like it. If got the same machine last Saturday, but just got it unpacked last night. Anxious to get sewing and check out all the perks it does. Have a good week-end and happy sewing!

Congrats on the temporary job and new machine! I had to chuckle at your "southern edge of the middle of nowhere" location. We must be neighbors! :)

Hello, I searched for members in Oklahoma. You were attached to a Panhandle Pal blog. I have family in Sunray Tx. My parents grew up in Erick Ok and Texola. I now live in Norman Oklahoma. Just wanted to say hello to someone in the middle of nowhere.

I grew up in the Texas Panhandle--Amarillo and Pampa--and have driven through the Oklahoma Panhandle about a zillion times. At least I did when I was young. My best friend (another quilter) has a scissor issue but nowhere near yours. Happy Quilting!

Hello scissors queen. I live in SD so am nit a close neighbor but still quilters are always close in heart. I am Roxiebee and am married to the same guy for 38 years. I love to sew! Working on a hand applique block for our guild right now. I enjoy all types of sewing and am a recovering counted cross stitch addict! hah! I have 3 grown children and 5 grandchildren, 4 boys and one granddaughter. I started quilting because used to decorative paint and couldn't find a supportive community close to home for that art so decided to change venues and quilting caught my eye. Now everywhere I go there are quilters, love it! It will be exciting to exchange ideas and get to know one another, roxiebee
