Pincushion Project

I found this pinscushion today and want to make a couple to hang several places. I'll add that to my list of to-dos.

I'm still working on the borders for the Quilt Along with Judy L. I think I'll use them for in between projects.

I still have the Brown Bear, Brown Bear loaded...waiting for a decision on what quilting pattern to use.

Still have to attach the binding on my Caterpillar quilt.

I have the Kids Will Be Kids quilt that goes on the HQ16 next.

I need to get going on the Calendar Quilt Challenge...need to finish February and start March...yikes, how did that happen?

I've decided that my design wall needs a frame. It can still be a bit portable, but it keeps bending in the middle where the two foam boards meet so I thought a frame would help. Boy, do I wish I didn't have slanted ceilings in this huge studio. I just don't have the height in this room to place it against the wall...whine, whine, whine! I should take photos of the room...

No pics yet. Sorry. The good news is I got an iPhone and maybe the camera on that will be better for sharing pics here.

How's that for a list? I love making lists, just have trouble crossing things off.



  1. I have the foam board and the flannel for my design board, but haven't put it together yet. It's on my list of to do's. Yep, I like making lists too! Once I finish the tote I started yesterday maybe I'll get my design wall on the wall!! Wish me luck, Barb

  2. Temporarily, I just put two pieces of foam together with duct tape and leaned it up against a pillar (slanted ceilings, so I don't have a wall tall enough) in the middle of the room. However, it is bending at the seam at the pillar. I'd really like it to be on wheels, but that would take engineering/talent and I haven't a slick of either. LOL Good luck with the tote and wall!!!

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…

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 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…

A New Project

Here are my fabrics for a new project that is a mystery quilt on a Facebook group to which I belong. If you are interested, you can join the group called "Just Us Quilters" and join in the fun.
