Rows Again

I got a few more things done today. I finished the Kids Will Be Kids rows and then sewed some together. Need to finish them and then add the borders and it will be ready to load on my HQ16 Pro-Stitcher which needs to be updated first. There's some good features that were added and I want to take advantage of them. Maybe I'll quilt a different one as a trial. You'll have to turn your head to look at it the correct way, not sure I can flip it now.




Got bored with rows of blue/brown and moved over to the Party Mints (boy) and did a few rows, just need to sew the rows together and add a border. I'll really be happy to see this one ready, maybe I'll quilt this one first.




Got bored of that and decided I wanted to sew some stratas so I started the Mystery by Lesley and sewed eight of them and cross cut them into 120 pieces. That was enjoyable and wished I had more to do...next step has some. They are hanging in sets of 10 on the pegboard--all 120 of them. Double Delight's Unit A's are hanging above them.



All the while today, I've been working on Unit B of Double Delight and I have a few finished, but not nearly enough. After pressing and squaring these up, I'm going to move to Step 3 so I won't be so bored and I'll just come back and do a whole bunch more of each step. Need to look at some pink for awhile.



Well, that's it for awhile. I'm going to help move my daughter so I won't be around much. Have a great weekend!

2017 is Here

Okay, so truth be told, I didn't do very well at finishing projects or blogging about them in 2017. If I blog every day about my 15 minutes of sewing, will that drive readers away?

I did finish this quilt, so I can cross that off of my UFOs, right? I have gifted it, but I really wish I had a pic of the flying geese going up/down. Sigh. Now to made some shams...in 2017!!



I did add a page for 2017 so I could list them, but I have so many years with so many unfinished quilts, it's embarrassing. BLUSH
I did start Bonnie Hunter's En Provence and here's a sample of a somewhat finished block. 

I also played around with Cheryl's Meadow Mist Mystery 2017 and I'm almost finished in time for tomorrow's next clue.  I think the piece on the bottom row in the middle might be the inside of the fabric or not??? I'll check.  All the other steps are finished, I hope. 

I'm also going to try free motion quilting for the first time, so I am ready with my panel and will…

It's Been Awhile

I will just say, "Sorry," and move on. Life really gets in the way A LOT for me. It's been a hot summer and the pool has been very inviting. Too hot to sew outside, so "swimming" it is!!! The tree over our pool has shed its leaves directly into the pool. They are still falling, it's a bunch of work to keep them gathered up and off the bottom. Since my husband is unable to tend to the outside work (or inside), I've taken on this task. I've only sucked up so many leaves one time and had to call the pool company to blow the lines. Got one of those leaf catchers, pronto!!! 
Enough said, here's what I've been up to:
I decided that I couldn't pass up the Sew Sampler subscription box from the Fat Quarter Shop. This was the pattern called Moonshine and they included the fabrics so I was able to whip this up pretty quickly.  I'm really happy with my points on this one. I've added the outer borders and will update the pic soon. I'm act…

Getting Back to Sewing

Sorry, I've been trying to re-arrange my studio and just didn't seem to get back to sewing/quilting, but I'm forging ahead because I missed all of January's blocks of the 365 Challenge! These are really tiny and I can see I need to be much more accurate with my cutting/sewing. LOL I'm using all stash fabrics, so my dark may not be dark enough and my lights might not be light enough, but my record for finishing projects prohibited me from spending money on this one!! 
Here's February 12, 2016 block: 


Now, here's the beginning of the blue and white quilt that I'm making. I designed it in EQ7 and the rows of the top left corner have been sewn together, so we'll see how accurate EQ7 is when I go to sew the diagonal rows together.  I am using it as leaders/enders for the 365 Challenge because they took a bunch of seams so more rows are finished without realizing it. A good thing.
Just want to mention that my design wall is four 2' pieces of that foa…
