I Like Thursday # 280 from Not Afraid of Color

 

Welcome to this week's list of likes... come on in, grab a cup of tea and visit a while! 

I love my poodle... what a good boy Milo is and what a sense of humor he has! I came downstairs this week to see him, er, well I don't know what he was doing...

Milo's Moment

Mama: ummmm Milo what are you doing? 

Milo: thinking... I've watched you and daddy look at the black screen for years and don't know why...

Mama: well, we watch the TV for entertainment, you're watching the fireplace

Back to mindless sewing........... from Exuberant Color



I have been sewing sets of 24 squares, some all alike in a stack, others similar fabrics and not all matched.





Some have been sewn to the next stage.








This is the block I will be making.  This is just 9 parts on the design wall, not sewn together.  The names of the block are Winged Square or Cut Glass Dish.  I will try it with the triangle parts turned 180 degrees and 3 dark squares to see if I like that better.  I thought I had a stack of 4.5" squares already cut but couldn't find them ...

I do believe I said... from Bizarre Quilter

Did you hear me say there would be more time to stitch? Well, feast your eyes, I've had a busy few days.



I call this one Our Lady of Guadalope. I went to her shrine in Mexico and asked her to make me a mother. It worked. 13 months later, despite being in full menopause, I had met a man, become an instant mother and became pregnant. I have plans to create a large applique collage of Our Lady in bright colours. Not sure when yet.



This Sun piece is exceptional. I love it so much, it sold straight ...

A Little Piecing from Quilts....etc.

I don’t feel like I got a lot done yesterday but I did sit and piece more of the signature block together from the flannels – I think this one will be named after the name of the fabric “Yuletide Gatherings” – it has a wintery Christmassy feel to it.  I doubt it will be […]

A Finish….And A Disappointment from Quarter-Inch Capers

I finished my flamingo cross stitch, and oh my goodness, I like it so much. The instructions said to soak in in a basin of cold water to remove the lines.

I went straight to the kitchen sink and ran some cold water. I soaked it for about 20 minutes, and then I drained the water and soaked it some more in some clean water. I laid it out on towels on top of the washing machine so it could dry overnight. 

Just look at this!

The pink floss bled! The green did too, a little bit:
I am so ...

Community Quilts from Jazz from Jo's Country Junction

I have goodies to share with your from Jazz today.

She writes:
Jo, I wonder if any of you other volunteer quilters are ever so in love with the pieces they finish they just want to keep them for themselves? I get so attached to each one that I have to say a little prayer over them as I hand them over to the gifts coordinator at Harris Health.

This one is a good example:

 

You sent me this darling panel; all I did was outline all the parts on the sewing machine, but it’s the sweetest little (34 ...

Masterpiece has really been growing this month! from Dreamworthy Quilts

 It is so rare for me to focus on only one quilt at a time.  I am really seeing how quickly it can grow with focus.

Here is what she looked like Jan 1st.



This is where she is at now.  I have made 82 blocks for this quilt in January.  There are 32 more blocks to go for a finish.

Binding Day from Quilting My Way

This morning I woke to a text asking if Debbie could stop by in the morning. It was 9:30 before I was up and out of bed. I over slept. Patrick went golfing. 

So, I told her to give me till 11 and I will be ready for her. I stitched the labels on the 2 quilts I had. Those where folded and the pillow cases put with them. Then I texted her about 10:15 to let her know I was done and she could come. She was delivering my brothers quilt to me. 

Once I was done ...

Goodbye to Dutchman's Puzzle from Fret Not Yourself

Quilting


Things move in fits and starts here. A couple of events have been postponed so I may be out longer than I originally planned. As time permits I'll try to post here but still have the comments off. Sorry.

One of my great-aunts made this Dutchman's Puzzle quilt top. I always loved the Dutch blue polished cotton counterpane blocks and saw it every day because my mother used it as a table topper by the reading chair just outside my room ...

Two By Two, and NTT from My Quilt Infatuation

Welcome to Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all.  I got two more Bethlehem Star blocks put together this week, which really is all I can fit in my schedule right now.


These block are so very time consuming.  It's okay though, because I'm loving the way these are looking together!  I'm just going to keep plugging away in my spare minutes!

Last week's party was filled with awesomeness!  Take a look at this soothing scrappy finish by Gretchen's Little Corner-


Jennifer at Life's Little Adventures shared this cute, unique quilt-

Word Of The Year 2022 And Recap from Quilt Paint Create

At the start of the year I like to look back at last year’s word before living this year’s word.

Last year my word was CHOOSE. I wanted to be more deliberate about what I included in my life and what I let go. But those words, they have their own ideas.

I learned there isn’t always a right or wrong choice. Choices are simply different. Different choices take you down different paths, and sometimes both paths lead to the same destination. It comes down to what you want to experience along the way and who you ...

Heary soup from Happy Cottage Quilter

Burrrr..... The US seems to be snowed under. While our lows have been 39 degrees and no snow (quickly going up to the mid 60's)  I thought I would share a great recipe for these cold winter days.


Have you ever had baked potatoes left over?  Or maybe you just like Baked potatoes.  Last year I found this delicious recipe for Loaded Baked Potato Soup, and I've made it several times, especially when we have potatoes left over.  I hope you enjoy this simple but delicious recipe.


8 russet potatoes
1 (16 ounce) package bacon
1 C butter ...

Blue Green Batiks Layout from Art In Search

      First, I have to ask- are you having trouble replying to blogs you are subscribed to? Blogs that I have followed and commented on for years are not allowing me to click in the comment box. I have done an online search on this topic, but found nothing. Whether it is my phone, laptop or desktop, can't comment.

      Every once in a while, I find a layer cake that snags me because of great price for comfort quilts. This one was from Etsy. My mother can sew some straight seams and I prepped the stack of batiks with a ...

Storm Trooper from Night Owl Quilting


This Storm Trooper quilt was made by Crystal for her teenaged son.  It is dramatic and awesome!  I am not a Stars Wars fan, but I can appreciate how much this quilt will be loved by someone who is.  Below you can see this quilt on my queen sized bed.


There isn't a commercial pattern for this quilt.  Crystal got out her graph paper and pencil crayons and drew it out referencing images she saw online.  She has already had requests from other family members for one of their own!


This quilt was dramatic and perfect in its unquilted ...
