Projects - Updates


I'm really enjoying visiting all the blogs from the "Grow Your Blog" party and if you've stopped by to enter the giveaway, please click through to this post

Thought I would update my January 13 projects (way too ambitious, will need to adjust that soon. LOL

Part of a quilt journal is posting regularly about the projects as motivation to complete, right? 

1. Tooth Fairy Pillow - Finished. 
2. Apron Ties - Finished.
3. Easy Street - Steps 1 & 2 have almost 40 of each, Step 3 has a bunch half sewn. 


4. Dear Jane - two more blocks finished,  A-7 and C-6 this week. Take note, they aren't trimmed yet. LOL I've chosen two more for this week, so I should have eight total for the month. 





5. Stop Sign - SID in the horizontal seams, just have to outline the letters...need to practice that some more. Ripped a bunch out already. LOL


6. Spot - Not even touched. Not my favorite job, ripping out stitches, so ignoring it. LOL

7.  Baltimore Autumn - Did some prep...

8.  Baltimore Christmas - Did some legs on the angels...

9.  Baltimore Halloween - Coming along, should be finished in January sometime. Pic to follow...my first appliqued block so it's pretty rough. Getting better at it. 

10.  Baltimore Liberty - Did some prep...not much 

11. Country Cottages (not houses) - Did the house, awning, chimney...

12.  Vintage Valentine - Did a bird...

13.  Dino's - Worked a ton on this, have six finished, six to go. 

So, I replaced the aprons with pot holders/mitts and need to finish that to ship off with the Stop Sign, so have to get these done this week. 

I've joined a bunch of online projects, they will be in another post soon. 

I really think I have all this time, but it turns out that if I don't set my timer, I get so distracted no matter how much I want to be working...the time I sit on this computer is killing me!!! 

I really think I should do a Quilt Cam like Bonnie's so I'll work if I know you are watching!! LOL

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…
