A Little Here A Little There from Quilts....etc.

Little by little things get done even if it doesn’t look like much progress is made at time.  The Morning Glory quilt still looks the same but I am part way done with the 3rd side and for my Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy I will take more stitches on that blue strip all the […]

Diamonds and Glory from Quilts....etc.

Morning Glory got taken off the wall and moved to the dining room table so I could work on the blue strip – it needs to be laid evenly in place and I find it easy to go ahead and glue baste to hold it down so I don’t get jabbed with pins.  The top […]

Quilting and Flowers from Quilts....etc.

The first border of Alaska was almost finished on Saturday evening but I just didn’t feel like sitting longer to finish it so I was working on that end again last night – close! With the mixture of cables and feathers the cables go quickly – the feathers don’t!  It looks wrinkled on the end […]

A Little More Quilting from Quilts....etc.

Before I got down to business quilting last night I needed to figure out the corner on the left side with the stencil so if I need room to “fudge” it a little bit I can – the stencil doesn’t fit perfectly – they rarely do- I need to play with it to get it […]
