I went to the Ohio One Stop Shop Hop and got some goodies!!  I fell in love with the snowmen and just had to have the kit from Cozy Cabin Quilts. Then I fell in love with these month kits from The Country Cupboard, but decided they were too expensive and just bought the book to use my own fabrics and also bought a Christmas book and a wire frame. Then, I found a cute boy quilt kit, called "On the Go" and just had to have it--from Quilts n Gifts.  There were several ladies leaving and they handed me their door prize tickets and I won a door prize!!! It was some brownish flannel fabric and four fat quarters of "What's Cookin" from Quilting Treasures, not sure who's ticket won, but thanks to you wonderful ladies that shared them with me. Now, to dream up something to use these cute fabrics in!

This is the first time I've ever done an "all under one roof" but I loved it. Not too much from any one shop to look at and be overwhelmed by, but just a touch of what they seemed to love. There were several shops that I just kept moving and their fabrics just weren't something that I could see myself using.

Oh, my, I've now found a Baltimore Christmas quilt kit online that I want to buy! Not that I need a new project, but I think it's so beautiful and I've been drooling for some time. Someone talk me out of it--some pieces are very small and I've decided I love needleturn applique!

  1. Looks like you had a great day! I am looking forward to the Indiana one stop shop hop at the end of this month. I have been to several of the shops you mentioned, so I don't think we are very far apart. Enjoy your goodies!

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 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…

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…
