Quilting!

I'm quilting my Roundabout today! I am practicing my free motion on all my Scbnibbles small quilts. I usually use the Pro-Stitcher, but I really want to practice. I'm doing circles inside circles, but not all circles are circles and not all circles have circles around them!!

Will I ever be good at this?

Pinwheel Sampler Quilt Along Update

In between my Schnibbles Roundabout, I worked on Block 3 of the Pinwheel Sampler Quilt Along. I still have Blocks 4 and 5 to go!

Roundabout Update

I finished rows then put them together! Now, on to the border!

I'm sewing the Pinwheel Sampler Block 3 as leaders/Enders. Hopefully, I'll get caught up soon!

Sewing Studio

I have this huge room above my three-car garage - the drawback is that the long side walls are sloped!

What do you think of hanging all my quilt tops on them? What should I use to secure them because they will need to be hung top and bottom? What are the conquences should they hang for years? LOL

Huge Ironing Board

Here's a pic of my ironing board setup. All of those drawers have a UFO in them! Guess I should have cleaned off the top so you could really see it! It's wonderful because it's rectangle rather than the ordinary ironing board, also, it's not against a wall, so I can let yardage drop if need be. Made of plywood, cut to size with a blanket and the silver fabric stapled to the underside, not too soft and stretched tightly, then stapled. I love it!! I have the Oliso iron that is always down, no lifting--saves my wrists for tennis!!

March Schnibbles

I finally started again on my March Schibbles. I've been away, but now I have a few days to just sew!

Bad news is that I cut the entire stack of creme squares not exactly square! So I have to re-cut every single one of them. Can you say? Duh!

I bought an Angler 2 to sew these rectangles and I made a sampler to be sure I knew what I was doing.

One down...

No Sewing or Quilting :(

Sorry, I've been away from my blog, I've been babysitting my two-year old grandson at my house and he's been keeping me very, very busy. I had no idea that I wouldn't even have a minute or two to check in for so long.

Tomorrow, I'm going to return him and help out for a week with my other grandson, but at his house, so I don't think I'll get anything done there!

See you soon. I'll check in when I can, but for sure by next Sunday.

On the Road to Spring Update

What do you think? Ready to sew the rows!
The Quilt Along is finished, but I got a late start and am coming along, slow, but sure.

Pinwheel Party Block 1

I bought Anina's kit for the Pinwheel Party because I've never dine black either!! This is a corrected block. Don't look closely at my points. LOL

Jelly Roll Sampler Redo

I didn't pay any attention to the creme background and some were sewn to the wrong side. Sigh. Actually, I wasn't too happy with my scrappy look so while I took apart the creme, I picked a more controlled 9 patch for the center. Better???
