Isolation Charity Sewing - Part 1 from Sew........This Is My Blog

During the Covid isolation I didn't just sit around doing nothing.  Well, actually I did for the first six or seven months.  Once I came out of my funk I did get into my sewing room.  I managed to make several charity quilts for Project Linus to be donated through my guild, the Rocket City Modern Quilt Guild.


First up are two super simple quilts I made from my stack of 5" brights.  I have so many children's prints, novelty prints, and brights that every once in a while I cut up a bunch of them into 5 ...

However the one above is also a contender for entry into the favorites list., but this morning the first one is the winner.

Basic Crazy Quilting Course Review and Reveal from Quilt Paint Create

I recently finished the Basic Cray Quilting Course with Kathy Seaman Shaw.

This class is a prerequisite for all her other classes, which are all free.

The class started in early January. This class is divided into 12 tasks and each one must be completed before you receive instructions for the next task. There are extensive written instructions for each task. The class is at your own pace.

The class contained an incredible amount of information, especially for a free class. The printed materials contain a lot of pictures. For techniques that were better explained visually, there were links to ...

Sunday Stash May 2, 2021 from Quilt Paint Create

Until I finish the Crazy Quilt Course, I’m going to pretend my numbers don’t exist.

The beading continues. As of this picture, I have six more steps to complete in Task #12 to finish the class.

If any of you have ever beaded or sequined a gown, you are a rock star. I really disliked sewing those sequins. The bigger the beads, the better I liked them. Seed beads are evil. They are always trying to escape.

I did manage to work the pink/blue beads into the piece.

Fabric In: 2 yards

Fabric Out: 1.25 yards ...

Sunday Stash April 25, 2021 from Quilt Paint Create

Let’s not even talk about the numbers.

It’s been all crazy quilt, all week, all beads.

I am a slow beader. If I worked with them more often it would go faster, but it’s never been my thing. I don’t dislike beading, but I don’t love it either.

The beads on the right intrigued me. Out of the package they look a lot less pink. They are actually pink in the middle and blue on the outside. Whether or not I will be able to work them into this project remains to be seen.

Either ...
