Wow! Great Service!

I'm going to be doing my daughter's nursery with lots of bright colors. She's chosen the "Fresh" line by Moda designed by Deb Strain. Not using all the fabrics, but she isn't finding out the sex of the baby so we wanted to go neutral, yet bright. She's due on November 1, so I have a bit of time, but not much.

I found nearly all the fabrics we wanted at The Old Country Store except the blue polka dot fabric. The fabrics cost less than we planned so we were very happy! I ordered them on Thursday and got them on Saturday!!! Great service!!! Very excited, but wanted to wait for that one other fabric before getting started. Will order again from them.

I found the blue polka dot at Chickadee Shops and ordered it on Thursday in hopes to get it by Saturday and work on it over the weekend. Well, it didn't come until today, somehow, they missed this order and were very sincere in their apology and sent me a full charm pack of the entire line of Fresh!!!! Wow!! Although, I would have loved to get the order on Saturday or by Monday, at least, but I'm so grateful for the charm pack--took some of the sting out of the wait!!! Thank you! I will remember this and be sure to order from them again.

So, I'm ready to go...washed the yellows, reds and greens, just need to get to the blues and one whiteish one!

Getting excited to work on the quilt and to have a new grandchild!!!

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…

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…
