Make-A-List Monday - Fall is For Quilting! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Has it started turning cooler where you are?  I keep waiting for those cool days but so far, they're a no-show.  Soon, though!  In the meantime I'll be enjoying the last little bit of summer weather.  

Now, though, it's time to see how I did with last week's to-do list....

1.  Quilt Lilli's annual quilt (while she's out of town and not looking over my shoulder!)
Done!  I'm so happy with the way this turned out!


2.  Work on those Christmas pillow covers!
I finished three "JOY" pillow covers, one for ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Let The Fun Begin! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Fall, Friday, and fun!  What could be better?  I do love this season - the cooler weather, shorter days, and the colors of fall.  Plus the holidays just around the corner - can you believe that there are only eleven more Fridays until Christmas? (Sorry for those of you who like to live in denial...)  But Friday also means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on - are you ready?  Let's go!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

It's been a busy and productive week in my studio!  First of all, I finished this pretty table runner...


Tons and tons of ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? WIP Progress! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Welcome to the first Friday in October!  Have the leaves started changing color where you are?  I love this time of year, probably because I grew up in Miami, FL where the leaves NEVER change, and I'm enjoying watching the tree outside my sewing room window.  Every day there's a little more color showing!  While that's whoop-worthy, I bet I can come up with some sewing whoop-whoops, too, and I imagine you've got some too.  So let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

It's been a busy week at my place!  I've been having so ...

Make-A-List Monday - Chugging Right Along! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Welcome to a new week!  Fall seems to be flirting with us as the leaves on the trees try on little hints of color and the weather gets cooler.  My favorite season!  Plus fall and winter just seem to be made for quilting, don't they?  And I've definitely been doing some of that this week.  So let's see how last week's list went...
 

1.  Make a back for the hockey quilt.
Done, but no picture - it's just a plain old back!

2.  Quilt at least one of the grands' annual quilts.
Done - and ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Well Begun Is Half Done... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


 Hi, all!

Well, it's official - it's now less than 100 days until the end of 2021!  After today, there are only fourteen more Fridays left in the year.  Hard to believe, isn't it?  This year seems to have flown by - but there's still time to get our whoop whoop on!  So let's get started...

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

You may have read earlier that I am participating in the WIPs-B-Gone 2021 100 day challenge hosted by Leanne (@devotedquilter) on Instagram.  Well, here's my pile of WIPs that I'm hoping to bust through by New Year's Eve ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A Finish, and Progress! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

I know it's hard to believe, but it's September!  This year is just whipping along, isn't it?  Now's the time, though, when we'll all start having some finishes - some we can share, some we can't - but we can all cheer each other on as we work!  So gather up your whoop-whoop-worthy stuff and let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

Well, it's been a couple of busy weeks around here, and I've finally got my sew-jo back, which means that things are moving right along on the quilting front.  First of all, here ...

Make-A-List Monday - Back in the Groove! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 


Hi, all!

After a tumultuous weekend for much of the South, Monday has finally arrived! If you were affected by Hurricane Ida, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.  The scenes we've been seeing on television of the storm damage have been horrific, and it looks like it will be a long time before things are back to normal.  We are now getting the first of the rain bands from Ida here in Tennessee, so we've got a couple of rainy days ahead of us, which means more quilting time!  I've got projects lined ...

Make-A-List Monday - Getting Back To Normal! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 


Hi, all!

It's Monday, and I'm actually starting to feel my sew-jo coming back!  I made progress on some things last week, and it feels so good - and I actually want to work on more stuff this week.  So let's see how last week's list went...

1.  Finish the borders on the third memory quilt.
Done!  I love these three quilts and how each is similar, but not exactly alike.  


2.  Make the backs for those three quilts.
Done!  I didn't get a separate picture, but the backs are that blue fabric on the left ...

Make-A-List Monday - Phil, Where Are You? from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Welcome to a brand new week!  Here's hoping my sew-jo has come back (I'm not sure yet, but keeping my fingers crossed!) and it will be more productive than the last one.  So let's see how last week's list went...

1.  Quilt at least three quilt ministry quilts, then bind and wash.
I didn't quilt any, but I did bind and wash seven quilts for the quilt ministry...


With the addition of these quilts, we have a sufficient amount of quilts on hand for immediate needs that we can slow down a bit ...

Make-A-List Monday - An Easy Week! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


Hi, all!

I'm writing this tonight from a cabin near Chattanooga, where we are enjoying a week away from it all!  We are still basically sheltering in place, just in a different place, which is nice for a change.  We have a beautiful view of Nickajack Lake...

...and on that hill down below us (very very steep, which makes our deck very private!)...

...some beautiful horses, running, or more accurately, walking and grazing, free.  It's fun to watch them!

But enough of that for now - let's see how last week's list went!

1.  Quilt at least ...

Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? When in Quarantine.... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Friday has rolled around once again - and not just any Friday!  Do you realize that Christmas is six weeks from today????? So it's crunch time!  But before we all get down to the hard stuff, let's take a few minutes to whoop it up!  Are you ready?  Let's go!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

As you know if you saw my blogpost on Monday, my husband and I have been in quarantine this week, because we both tested positive for COVID.  Not to worry, though, he is better and I never had any symptoms, so our quarantine officially ends today ...

Make-A-List Monday - A Productive Week! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Wow, last week was very productive!  I guess I just need to know I have a very limited amount of time and lots to do to get motivated.  So without further ado, here's last week's list and what I did...

1.  Baste and quilt the special project quilt.
Done!  It's all ready to go, and I'll share more about this one after it is gifted.


2.  Make a back for the reindeer quilt.
Done!  And I managed to make it using fabrics I already had on hand - win/win!


3.  Make a back for ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Dinos in the House! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Can you believe it's Friday already?  This week has flown by - but it IS Friday and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

My week really did fly by, and I don't feel like I got a whole lot done -but I did start on Nathanael's annual quilt!  I am using Elizabeth Hartman's Dinosaurs pattern, and it is a lot of fun!  I had some trouble with the first dinosaur block I made, but then I went back and actually read her step-by-step instructions ...

Make-A-List Monday - Back In The Real World! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Well, it's been a few weeks since I did a Make-A-List Monday post - but don't think I've been slacking off!  OK, well, I did slack off a little bit during vacation, but I had fun sewing on things I *wanted* to work on rather on things I *needed* to work on.  First up was this Plaidish quilt...


...which I finished while on vacation. That was a fun bit of sewing and I will definitely be making more of these!  Then I worked on the reindeer blocks that eventually ended up in this top...



Isn't ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Progress Made, And New Projects Started... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Friday has rolled around once again, and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  It's been a busy and full week around here, as I imagine it has been wherever you are - but hopefully you've got something to whoop about this week.  So let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

Last week I shared Lilli's annual quilt as a work in progress, and this week, while it's still a work in progress, it is also a finished quilt top!


Lilli wanted a quilt large enough for her queen size bed, and ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? The Gang's All Here! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Can you believe Friday has made it here again?  Seems like these weeks are just flying by - but time does fly when you're having fun.  And I have been having some serious fun this week!  Friday means it's time to get our whoop whoop on, so let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

You all probably know that I make a quilt each year for each of my grandkids and give it to them at Christmas time.  It's a fun way to commemorate their year - the quilt usually has something to remind them of what they were like ...

Make-A-List Monday - Productivity Rocks! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


Hi, all!

Mondays just seem to keep showing up, don't they?  But I feel like I had a very productive week last week, so it was a good week.  And Monday gives us a new start, which is always a good thing.  Let's see how last week went!

One of the first things on my list was to work on cutting out Lilli's Harry Potter quilt.  I'm happy to say that I have finally finished cutting out all the blocks...


...and I made all of the paper-pieced rooftops for the castle block.  Oh, how I hate ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Lots Going On! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


Hi, all!

Well, here it is, Friday again, can you believe it?  The weeks are just flying by, it seems.  But Friday means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on, so let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*&*


First up is this t-shirt quilt for a young man who just lost his dad unexpectedly.  One of his mom's friends commissioned this quilt and I was honored to be part of its story.


Pretty blues make this a cheerful quilt, and one I hope he will enjoy for many years to come.


I love the texture simple straight line ...

Make-A-List Monday - Progress, and Another Busy Week! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

After a busy week and weekend, Monday has rolled around again and another week has begun!  And it's August - can you believe it?  This year has seemed both interminable and like it's flying by, both at the same time.  I don't understand that, but I bet many of you feel the same way.

Let's see - last week I had a few things on my list, like making some see-through masks for friends...


These went to a family in Georgia...


...and these were made for my grandkids' school interpreter!

I also had on my list ...

Make-A-List Monday - So Many Projects! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

These Mondays just keep rolling around, don't they?  And they seem to come faster and faster!  But it's time to make another list, and boy do I have stuff to put on it!

Last week my one goal was to finish the commission for thirty see-through masks, and I did, just this afternoon.  I delivered them in batches, so I don't have a picture of them all together, but here's a few of them...



And my husband and I put up a new ceiling fan in my studio, this one with a working light ...
