glue basting spray

A word to the wise:  if you think your glue-baste quilting spray is too old, be very cautious about using it.  Mine is several years old, and not something I use(d) very often.  I can't tell you how old, because I don't remember when I bought it.  

I was working on a shannon fabric (minkee) blanket and since it is somewhat slippery, I thought I'd tack it together with small amounts of basting spray.  

As I was cleaning the spout, I got some glue on my hands.  I sure hope it…

Any ideas?

A family friend is organizing an estate auction and asked my opinion on the value of some quilts.  I know it is difficult to do from a distance, but anyone have a rough ballpark guess as to what she should expect.  …

I nearly lost my mind

Yes it was driving me crazy trying to make these blocks.  I haven’t done curved piecing in quite a while and the straight cut blocks weren’t exactly symmetrical either. But the top is almost finished. I just need to work on the border pieces and it will be done.  Oh and this one is mine.  Not going to give this one away.  Lol  Sorry I don’t know why it keeps trying to post picture sideways…

Recommendations needed on rulers

Hi. I have recently begun working with HSTs.  What ruler do you all prefer to use for squaring up HSTs?   I am looking at purchasing either Clearly Perfect Slotted Trimmers or Bloc Loc ruler or Quilt In A Day Square Up Triangle Ruler.  
  I would appreciate your recommendations.

Accumulated quilt stuff

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…

tannenbaum table runner

Been working on this since February, I believe. Just finished it. I hand quilted the straight lines; the wavy lines within the tree branches are by machine.

Happy Mother's Day

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.

Out of Fabric...

I delivered the last of the face masks to the food bank this morning. I made 421! I absolutely ran out of fabric! It feels great to clear out some bins for a good cause. We opened the lake house this past weekend. Our weather has been crazy cold for this time of the year! Mother's Day will be quiet...too cold for a driveway visit! will have to zoom it. Wishing all a wonderful Mother's Day. Stay safe...but, get out there and take our life back.…

Face masks

I took another 100 face masks to the med center today. I think I will move on to something else, also. This is my 3rd week off work, I go back Monday. I wouldn't mind another week off, but I am so thankful I have a job to go back to.

From start to finish....

Here’s the before and after pictures of my newly finished fan quilt. I bought 15 hand pieced fan arcs last year at a flea market for a few dollars. You can see that the size varied. I ended up…
