Quilt Finish: Garlic Knots from Jo's Country Junction

Hey all…I finished Garlic Knots.  I’m so happy because that is another UFO off the list.  I think this makes 4 that are finished.  I started in July with 12 on the list.  I only finished one…and then I had a little talk with myself and have stepped up and kicked it in high gear to get some of these finished.

For those wondering,  this is a Bonnie Hunter quilt.  It’s a paid-for pattern that can be found on her blog.

I had a great time making the blocks.  They were really fun to make as ...

Quilt Finish: Gray Half Square Triangle Quilts from Jo's Country Junction

You might remember that I’m trying to get real with my UFOs.  I am on a push to get 6 finished by the first of July.  That would be half of the UFOs I have if I could do it.  That would be awesome. It’s not that I’m against UFOs.  I just want some space back in my sewing room.  Eliminating the totes would give me more space!

So today’s finish started back in January of 2020….
A blog reader gave me a bunch of bonus triangles.  They were a bright printed fabric with a gray ...

Quilt Finish: Scrap Vortex from Jo's Country Junction

Some of you might remember that I had a little meeting with myself in regards to my UFOs.  I wanted more finished.  I started the year with 12 on my list.  From there I finished one.

I now have three more into tops…and this one, Scrap Vortex is FINISHED.  I made a deal with myself.  No new starts until I have 6 of the UFOs on my list finished.  We’ll see how I do.

So without further ado…Here is Scrap Vortex.

This was a quilt along with Crazy Mom Quilts.  You can find out more info HERE ...

My Chemo Brain Quilt Finish from Jo's Country Junction

Truth be told…I was a little sicker than I let on back in January.  I had oral chemo all of December and the first week into January.  I had my radioactive iodine treatment on January 7th and from there…it all went downhill.

I had tried to get a quilt done and finished before it got bad but there were some snafus and miscommunications that led me to not having finished when I had planned so that left me sewing it when I was feeling the absolute worst.

With the deadline pushing me I just sewed.  I didn’t ...

More Quilts To Finish Then I Know What To Do With! from Quilting My Way

 This morning I enjoyed the morning listening to my book and playing bingo. Patrick slept in, so I enjoyed playing my games. 

Once he was up and things were back to normal - or at least seems to be - I decided to get the binding of the QOV quilt done. 

I spent the afternoon finishing the binding and then adding the label. I pulled another label out and put that on the quilt we received for a specific person. It's ready to go as well. I have 3 more quilts to put labels on and 2 more that need binding ...

WooHoo! A Finish! from Quilting My Way

 Today while I waiting for my son to come visit at 1 pm, I worked on my beading. I really wanted another project done! 

My ornament is finally done! That is last years project. Only took me 6 months to get it done! I cleaned up my mess. Then I vacuumed and picked up for my son's visit. Haven't seen him in a long time, so it was so nice to sit and play a couple games with him. 

I like the way it came out. I'm happy with it. Now I need to think of this ...

Quilt Finish: Another Leftovers Quilt from Jo's Country Junction

I am still working my way through the leftovers that were mine and those that were sent my way.  This quilt was inspired by the person who had red scraps in their donation.  Thanks for sending them.  I so appreciate it.

The quilt is smaller than most of the quilts I make.  It’s 71 ½” x 78 ½”.  I let the amount of pieces I had decided the size of the quilt…

Here is a closer picture…

There are lots of batiks in this quilt but lots of other prints too.  In a previous time in my life, I ...

Another Finish - 3 In 4 Days! from Quilting My Way

 This morning I was up and enjoying an hour before heading off to moms. I arrived early since I needed to visit with my son.

There were 8 of us today. It was kinda nice, but there is one person I have a hard time having fun around. We didn't think she would come back, but she's been there every week. I'm almost to the point of not going any more. 

I didn't take this quilt because I finished it last night. I felt great knowing I've been able to finish 3 projects in the ...

Finishing Up Some Things from Quilting My Way

This morning I slept in - because of the Benadryl. I had to take it when I headed to bed last night. I'm having an allergic reaction to my heart monitor tape. I contacted the doctors and they gave me the number to call. Called and was told they would forward the information to the Olympia office. I could take it off, but asked if I could wait till I hear from the nurse. I said that was fine. No return call today. I do hope they call tomorrow. 

Then I cleaned up a few things upstairs. Got 2 loads ...

Embroidery & Beading from Quilting My Way

 This morning was our meeting day. I picked up Sandy and we headed to McD's. She was hungry, so we got breakfast while we were there. Sandy gave me a box of jeans that she was going to do something with. We had a good time! 

I have a FINISH! I added the worm and more grass. Once all that was done, I called it done. Gave it back to Sandy, because this was her class project that she didn't want to do. I was thrilled to do it. I'm just glad I was able to finish ...

A Good Day To Be Quilting! from Quilting My Way

Today turned out pretty good. Really didn't have plans after Patrick went golfing. 

Debbie called and asked if she could come over to fit her blue with the blue we have for backgrounds. Told her to come on over. We went through the panels that we have. She took 3 and we put one on the floor to see if we could use a flag panel with the other flag panel. 

 So, we decided to cut the strips off the other flag panel. We can't have the actual flag in our quilts. And that was what those stripes ...

Finished Binding - Went Bowling from Quilting My Way

 This morning was cold! We pretty much stayed home. I worked on laundry and played my games. Then I got busy on getting the binding done on another quilt. I also added a label to the quilt. 

Three quilts are now ready to go the museum. It's an added addition to the quilts. We had 8 ready to give out - 5 are going out this weekend. Then adding these to the pile will put us at 5 ready for the next one. We have about 4 others out there with bindings. I have to pick one up from mom ...

Quilt Finish: Two Step from Jo's Country Junction

I have a finish and I’m so happy to be sharing it with you today.  This is Two-Step.

Here is the picture from the book.  I, of course, made mine bigger.

The quilt is in this book. You can find the book HERE on Amazon.

It was such a fun quilt to make!  I just opened my 2 1/2″ bucket and started sewing.  It’s my favorite kind of quilt to make…kind of a grab-and-go!

I braved the sub-zero temps last week to take the pictures.  It was -20 degree wind chill.  That’s how dedicated of ...

Quilt Finish: Remainders from Jo's Country Junction

I’ve been on a bit of a roll with putting quilts on the longarm.  I hope that can continue.

I had a little time the other night and thought I would go up and bind one that’s now in the binding pile.  Remainders was my pick…why?  I had leftover backing fabric sitting out that needed to be put away but it was the perfect color for the binding…so I cut it and started binding.  What can I say…I’m a little bit lazy and didn’t want to start overthinking the binding.

Many of you ...

What A Day! from Quilting My Way

 This morning we were up at 6:30 to get Patrick up to Olympia by 8:15. He had his appointment for his scans. I sat and waited. 

I worked on my embroidery and was able to get most of this done. I still need to add the green under the buds on the left. I like the way it's coming along. I was able to get a lot done. 

Then Patrick dropped me off at moms. It was Friday meeting day. I worked on the binding of the quilt for my brother. 

It is now finished. I will ...

A Quilt Finish: Bitcoin from Jo's Country Junction

The minute that I saw Bonnie Hunter’s quilt Bitcoin, I knew I wanted to make it.  I actually laughed when it was released.  As it was released with another pattern at the same time and it was kind of like a “buy this pattern and get Bitcoin for 1/2 price” type of deal.  I was the odd duck.  I wanted Bitcoin and didn’t really care about the other pattern.

I loved the pattern so much that I, pretty much, started sewing on it right away.  I loved it that much.

I put in on the quilting frame ...

Finished The Bookmark! from Quilting My Way

Today I was expecting Patrick to go golfing but it was called off. They decided the rain was in the way. So, instead, Patrick and I got back to straightening things up again. I changed the boxes that has my table clothes so I could use the box (air tight) for photos. We ended up with 3 full boxes of photos. Also had 4 boxes (downstairs!) of  genealogy. We throw out a few things and cleaned up other things. My china cabinet that I got from my grandmother was cleaned up and I moved the dolls into another container. I ...

Finished And Gifted from Quilting My Way

 Today we started out with more stuff to do. Patrick worked on getting the desk in the office. I worked on getting the Christmas Star bread going. Once that was started, Patrick wanted to go out and get a few things. First stop was Home Depot for the boxes we bought the other day. Of course, they didn't have the size I wanted. So, I will need to keep my eyes open for them again. Then we headed over to Staples. We needed the mat for the office chair. Didn't want it scratching the new floors. I also ...

Another Friday from Quilting My Way

Here we go again, round and round the week. Today was quilting at moms. I took my quilt and worked on the binding. Mom took part of the quilt and worked on one side while I worked on another. We got the quilt done! 

 It has the yellow binding on it. I didn't get a photo, but will later. I washed it twice and there was a lot of bleeding. I thought that would be enough, till I folded it, and found red bleeding on the back. I think it's that dyed fabric that I used on the ...

Headache Day from Quilting My Way

 This morning I work with a headache, and it's still here. So, now I'm going to call it an early night because of it. 

I worked on my QOV quilt today. 

I was able to get this much done and realized it needed some kind of border. 

So, I added the blue border. I think that did it. It turned out better than I thought. Patrick was golfing, so I had all day to work on this. It did take a few hours, but I do like the results. 

Then came up and worked on my bead, starting ...
