Quilt With Us

Henry Parrish Jr.'s Blog (32)

Been away for a long time

Its been a long time since I posted. I came across my password and sign in while doing some cleaning. I really like being back on here looking at all the pretty things.

I lost my paternal grandma in March of 2014 at the age of 93. She is the one who taught me to sew and quilt.

I have been making quilts still and i will try to post a few in the coming days.

Glad to be back.

Still around and about

I hadn't been on here the last few months because I had been worried about my money situation from being unemployed etc. But finally got a new job, back with the school system and am happy to say I finally feel at peace enough again to quilt. So the last few weeks I have been working on a reversible lap quilt. Pics will be posted when I am done with it. But just wanted everyone to know I am still around

Update

Well I have been rather busy with my schoolwork, as I am trying to finally earn the elusive Bachelor Degree I have been slowly taking classes for , for the last few years. So far so good with the grades.



I have been doing little sewing projects, like more aprons or wall hangings for friends and family. So I am still around just staying busy. I haven't forgotten you all. :0)~



I hope everyone is enjoying quilting and I am so glad that cool weather is finally here again. It… Continue

3rd Apron

I just got on a roll with these. I had a small piece of Pepsi pin-up girl fabric that I couldn't decide what to do with. So I turned what little I had into an apron.

Teddy Bear baby quilt



So it wasn't without a challenge. I finished it and put it in the washing machine on the gentle cycle for cottons and wouldn't you know the white fabric with the teddy bears on it, ripped along one side and some of the cotton batting was hanging out . So i stuffed it back in, sewed it up, though I had to sew a crooked little line across the binding to close it. It is in the dryer now on No heat just… Continue

Working on this now

A couple I know are going to have a little boy so I am making this quilt for them. It has two different prints because I didn't have the heart to cut the fabric apart. So its reversible. They get tired of looking at one side they just turn it over.…

Been away for a while......but I am now back.

Hey everyone. I have been away for a while now but am now back. This has been one depressing summer. I have both good news and bad news. My grandma passed away on July 19th and my aunt followed on July 25th. My mom has improved and can now take care of herself. I am still jobless and so therefore am still looking.



But it is good to be back on here. I am ready to get back to quilting and I have a quilt or two that I started before everything happened that I will now get back to… Continue
