Table runner

I decided to make another quick table runner using some more heart fabric that I have had in my stash for several years.  I made the heart blocks on my embroidery machine & then finished it on my Pfaff.  It is laying on my coffee table.  I told my husband that it sure would look nice with a bouquet of flowers on it for Valentine's Day.  LOL …

UFO pieced.

Well these snowy days I have been able to finish putting together blocks of an UFO that have been waiting for over ten years, so top already for LAQ.

And I have another UFO looked out to work on at my next Sew What group on Tues.…

Hunter's Star thoughts, please

Here is the Hunter's star layout, before it was completely put together.  I like the balance.

The blocks finish at 8", so as is, this measures 32 x 40.  Question:  Is that big enough for a baby quilt?  I tend to make mine a little larger.  I'd feel better if this were 40 x 48, but I am not going to…

Train Quilt

This is the train quilt that was a work-in-progress for FAR too long.  It is in its new home with GS#1 who loves it.  I don't know if you can tell from the pictures, but I used the alphabet feature on my machine to stitch "Rail Road Crossing" in the cornerstones.  It fits with the railroad tracks sashing.  …

Hunter's Star preview pics

Here is a sample of what has been put together on my design wall so far on the baby Quilt.  I'll rearrange blocks for color balance and variety when  all the blocks are made, but I'm liking it so far.  The arrowhead blocks are 8" finished.  …

Latest finishes

I finally quilted & bound a row robin that was started about 11 or 12 yrs ago by a group of internet friends.  I sent everyone the black fabric with bright polka dots.  Then I assigned each person a specific color combination and asked them to make me six 6" Sawtooth Star blocks using the polka dot fabric as the background and choosing a different center for their block than what anyone else had done.  I had received a lot of compliments on it.  I'm going to enter it to hang at the…

Hunter's Star Baby Quilt

Too cheap to buy a pattern and didn't like the freebie method for this block for this particular quilt and the fabrics I'm using.  However, next time I might be tempted to just go with that one.  It would be much easier than what I have resorted to doing - templates.  After a lot of math frustration and several block sample fails, templates seemed to be the way to go for this block to get the look I want.  This will be a baby quilt, so not many blocks.  I'm kind of excited about the…

A new week

I had a pretty good Spirit Led week last week.  

I was able to quilt and bind the 'cross' quilt for baby Avery.  The batting for the large quilt is in the dryer to remove wrinkles from being in the packaging.  I hope to get the pinning done today.  (I am out of my spray adhesive).  I would have probably pinned it also.

On Avery, things are still looking real good for her.  Her parents have been told that at this point, they see no reason why she can't come home…

My first BeColourful quilt done!

I've been very quiet here, but I wanted to share this quilt.

After taking classes twice now with Jacqueline De Jonge, I have my first of (at least) 4 quilts completed.

I had it quilted by a friend who has quilted other of Jacqueline's quilts and did a wonderful job with it.

Quilting close…

It's been a long time!

Yes it has been a long time since I wrote on here, I do read and sometimes comment.

After the show I take part in " Christmas In Paris "with my thread painting, life has been hectic to say the lest. So thought I would show you a piece of thread painting that sold very quickly and I hope to do another to give the kind gentleman that let me use his photo for a subject. Hoping within the next week or so to make a start. Life has a way of throwing you curve balls!!LOL. DH has just come…

Warm and sun

We arrived in Fl. Spent the morning with friends at Blue Springs Park. Over 300 manatees came in to warmer water quite a site along with other wildlife! Orlando is a crazy place to drive, but it is so torn up that it is dangerous driving  if, they ever finish it’ll be nice.…

Crazy weather week

The Spirit Led me this week.  It kept me on task.  I hope you had a Spirit Led week also.

As predicted and mentioned in the last post, we had ice and snow.  It was so cold for Texas.  We got down to 7 degrees one morning.  Since Texas is not prepared for this type of weather, it shut down the schools for 2 days.  The roads were impassable. We have many hills in the area and vehicles could not get up them.  We also have narrow roads in many places in the country, so many slid…

Another Snow Storm!

Greetings!  More snow, 8 new inches!  Wish I could say I've been busy sewing all day but that isn't the case!  Did iron a few pieces of fabric to keep the stash in order but the rest of the day has been shoveling, chores and paperwork.  Sharing the photo my Niece sent of the holiday table runner that I made and…
