Finally something to show

Posted on April 7, 2019 at 8:00pm 4 Comments

The picture below is a pair of blocks I've been working on.  the dark blue with the white center is only one of three different blocks that will be in the quilt.  It may take me a while to finally get all the blocks put together but then I do have until christmas to get it finished.  LOL  Seems to me I said that about another quilt that I am working on for my grandson.  still not finished with that one either.  The 2nd picture is the first row of blocks to  be put together.…

I bought a new Brother sewing machine almost 2 years ago.  I've been working on the applique project posted earlier.  Suddenly the darn machine doesn't want to work right.  I tried cleaning lint out, changed bobbin, re-threaded I don't know how many times to no avail.  I called the store that I bought it from and they said I could bring the machine in and that they would look at it.  I asked how much sense it was over a year old.  $179.00  Hummmmm I'll fix it myself thank you very much.   …

Design clipart from the internet.  Redesigned in my EQ7 program and cut out on my cricut cutter.  Ironed on to my current quilt block.  Now all I have to do is stitch them down and finish my quilt.  This just opened up a ton of Ideas.   HONEY I need more fabric!!!!…

Back to the drawing board

I've been on vacation this week and while trying to work on the house I also found time to try and work on my quilt.  The picture below is the never gonna make it again quilt on the new floor in our living room.  Everything was going great until I walked around and discovered that the backing on the far end of the quilt was not long enough.  I probably could have stretched the backing more but I wasn't in the mood.  I had already taped the backing to the floor and laid everything out and…

How did I get myself into this mess?

Posted on January 17, 2019 at 10:12pm 6 Comments

So previously I posted a picture of my version of the broken star quilt that I will never make again. See photo below.  Today I spent most of the day learning how to use the Cricut Maker that I bought last year.  I posted a photo before of the designs that I wanted to put onto this quilt.  Well I finally got them cut out and ready to transfer to the quilt.  I've put in a request to use my daughters floor sense she has a big house and open floor space to lay out the quilt and trace the…

Kathy, sorry my recent post wasn't clear.  The Lone Star tutorial is one of Kaye Wood's and is rather long.  However, if you bear with her through the beginning, she does explain the piecing process and how she matches the seams. 

Always a challenge doing something new but so rewarding!

Hi Kathy! I hope the surgery went well and you are feeling ok.  :)

Kathy,  I saw your comment on the  Essential Pro Polyester thread and have a question.  How do you think it would work on a serger?  The price is definitely right.  It cost me an arm and a leg to buy thread for that darn machine when doing special projects.  With Luke here I see myself segering more and more and would love to find a good inexpensive thread.

Hi Kathy

We're about 15 miles west of Naches, as you head up towards Chinook Pass.  It would be a lovely spot for a quilt retreat, but the lodges are not geared for that. My quilt room, on the other hand, would do pretty nicely.

Hi Kathy...I looked up the new sewing machine that you bought and it looks like a nice one. I found a Brothers PC-210 PRW, a limited edition, that is exactly like my Crafter's Choice Baby Lock and it was a lot cheaper now that when I bought mine. I really love it. I wanted more space in the throat to quilt and saw a Husqvarna 140C that has a 10" throat. My DH was so nice and bought it for my birthday, which is coming up in about 3 weeks. What a guy. Have fun with your new machine.

1.suggest the lay away idea. 2. make the squatters get a job.3. charge a good price for your WONDERFUL quilts....do you have an ETSY site? something to consider :o)

You have a grandbaby on the way....focus on that....and your beautiful dd.

I would more then willing help you finish your quilts. I use flannel on many of my quilts, almost all baby quilts. It only cost $16.00 with insurance one way. I like using warm and natural. I charge about $10 a hour. If you are interested and since you know about how long it takes, send me a note to what you think the price would be if you are interested.

Kathy, you have a heart of gold. I don't know if I could be as generous as you are being for your family, can't image not having my space for quilting. Sure hope I don't have to make that choice although my only son has his mommy wrapped around his finger so I would probably give in too. Hope you can find a way to squeeze in your machine somewhere, you do wonderful work.

Kathy,,, I feel for you,,, as I am more or less in the same boat.  Think we can take our LA in the boat with us???  Our DD moved back home last week with her 2 boys, 13 & 2 1/2.  The boys will be sleeping in my sewing room.  Dismantling it after 20+ years is not my idea of fun or where I want to go!!!  LA is in the Florida room now covered with fabrics, projects and don't forget 2 of my 3 FW's.   Totes have been purchased, still don't know where they are going.   Still have to remove a dresser and my cutting table.   I hope I can find a place to work on piecing and my LA soon.

Just read your blog "Sigh" about the dogs and other adventures and how does anybody quilt.  Had a good laugh, sounds about right.  Our dog can't hear so when he decides to start barking, well, sheesh!  He's eleven years old and we've had him since he was a couple weeks old.  Hard to be angry when I get that soulful look  with all the grey hairs for eyebrows.  Gonna have to try that dart thing,LOL.

  BTW, you make some amazing stuff!
