Hello Monday....Hello Friends... from Quilting My Way

 This morning I was out the door by 9 am. I wanted to leave early so I could drop off our voting packet. I dropped it off at the voting drop site. There was a car in front of me and another behind me. I didn't think about it till after, that I should have taken a photo of me dropping it off....NOT. 

Arrived at the grange early. No one was there yet. I pulled my stuff out and then Sandy I arrived. We were there about 10 mins and Sandy II arrived. She brought we 3 pillow ...

Birthday Month from Romany Quilting

I blame my daughter Nicky – she is a great believer in having a month of birthday celebrations, rather than just celebrate on the actual day.  I’m not quite as bad as that, although so far I have had two birthday get-togethers.  Earlier last week  two friends and I went out to a local café for lunch, and very nice it was too, some nice “girl time” together.

Then on Friday we met up with a group of friends.  As a group we have been meeting up monthly for absolutely ages, about 30 years, believe it or not, and each ...

Now What?! from Quilting My Way

I forgot to mention yesterday that I talked to Sharon. She was home. Apparently she had a TIA. I told her she was lucky because they know what to do now with stokes. The sooner the better. At least she's doing better.  

Today was interesting. We headed to Costco in Olympia around 10 am. We really didn't have a lot to get, and the toilet paper we wanted wasn't in stock. No worries. We picked up stuff for us and Phil. It is fun to shop for Phil as well as us. Mom isn't around, so ...

Not One Of My Better Days.....But It Wasn't Because Of Me from Quilting My Way

 Today started out with me going over to Nancy's since mom is in Las Vegas - or Utah now that I think of it. Mom's at the cabin in Utah with my 2 brothers and their wives. 

Nancy and I did some stitching to start out. She told me of her son having back issues and was going to the doctors today. So, while we were stitching he was texting what was going on. He was going to help her get all her cabinets taken out so the new cabinets would go in on Monday. The doctors first thought ...

Cotton Quilters' Guild meeting from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

The Cotton Quilters met on our regular first Monday of the month. Since it's October, president Margaret Ducote asked that everyone bring in their fall/Halloween themed quilts. Apparently I'm one in the minority since I have only one of those made years ago. Here are a few of them:




As you can see, everyone has been wonderfully busy. Some of these pieces were made much earlier than the past month, but enjoyed seeing them all the same. As Mrs. Mary said, "You can't see a quilt too many times."

There were some new pieces. Here are ...

A Quilted Hug from From the Strawberry Patch...

After learning the news about my dear friend (and former neighbor) who's currently going through chemotherapy for a recent lymphoma diagnosis all I could think of is "what can I do?" She lives in Oklahoma, so not only is distance a factor in feeling helpless, but my current state of worry over infecting someone with anything, (let alone a dreaded virus) when their immune system is wiped out is

Finally! A Rainy Day! from Quilting My Way

 This morning I messed around. I didn't want to do much. So I did the usual game playing. 

Then I sat down to work on my beading after getting laundry started. 

I started working on the Christmas gift. It's better colors than the last one I did and took apart. It's still not in the direction I want it to be, but the photo was a bad one. The colors are so much alike in the photo, which makes it hard to bead. I will work on getting a better photo later. But right now, it's ...

Embroidery Meeting Day from Quilting My Way

 This morning I was up and getting my stuff organized for our meeting at the Grange. I needed to stop at the bank on the way. I was going to stop at Phil's but didn't think I had the time. So, I headed on to McD's for a large ice tea before heading to the Grange for our meeting. 

Arrived early, so was able to listen to my book while I waited. I took some fabric and egg cartons to Sandy. She's going to do some pillow cases for me. I gave her a lot of ...

Please Pray With Me from From the Strawberry Patch...

This is me with my friend Janis, the photo was taken four years ago when we visited her and her husband at their ranch in Oklahoma. Janis and I were next door neighbors here in North Carolina back in the day, we raised our families together and our lives overlapped every day in all the very best ways. I got a phone call from her daughter last week and even before I answered my heart dropped into

Cotton Quilter's Guild September 2020 meeting from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Did you know that you can hover over the picture and the caption appears? Yes, the magic of technology!

How about getting to the CQG meeting's Show and Share before the week is out? A miracle from Mary! I'm actually quite proud of myself. The photos below are quilts, quilt tops, and charity quilts, with the exception of my own shares. I'll tell you about those later. Some things need finishing. 









 All of the following are WIPs to be sold online via the Cotton Quilters Guild Facebook page. So are tops we worked on during our Sew ...

MEMORIAL DAY from Quilting My Way

 Today is Memorial Day. 

It was our BE meeting day. I arrived and found Bev sitting in her car. She arrived just before me. I opened up the Grange, and then we got set up. Sandy (II) came shortly after. We had a really good meeting. Missed the other, but they should be there next time. 

I worked on cleaning up the back and then worked on the flowers at the top. I'm going to work on this and get it back to Cheryl. I want her to have something she worked on done. 

We went out to check ...

The loveliest remembrance from Quilting with Kimberly

I received a package the other day that literally had me in tears within seconds of opening it. 

I have a wonderful friend named Judy. We’ve known each other since our time at Ramstein Air Base in Germany, more than 15 years ago. Judy is a fabulous quilter. She’s amazingly talented, so much fun to be around, and I love calling her my friend! Judy and I share a love of quilting, Mini Coopers, and cabins and cottages. We’ve kept in touch over the years and for the past several years she has come to Quilt Festival ...

CQG meeting from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

 I almost missed the window of posting about our August Cotton Quilters' Guild meeting. There will be another meeting in just a few days. In addition to having our meeting, this month we held a sew day which, I am happy to report, was a great success. But I'm getting ahead of myself. 

President Maggie

Treasurer Irma and Secretary Mary C.

Some of the blocks for our current BOM, which I have yet to begin. Oh dear me! I've decided to finish my current BOM (Sugaridoo) before beginning another. Hmm, maybe not the best ...

2 Quilts (one complex & one simple), What's Cookin'?, and Covid numbers from caledonia quilter

PLEASE NOTE THAT I ONLY HAVE A FEW OPEN SPOTS BEFORE CHRISTMAS - GET IN TOUCH SOON IF YOU WILL NEED QUILTING DONE.

Here's the complex quilt, with a medallion setting and a bunch of paper pieced sharks teeth.


And curved piecing.  Don't forget the curved piecing.

This quilt took me back in time.  When I was a kid, Mom had made me a skirt that I loved - dark grey with box pleats.  The inset in the box pleats was pink with a tiny black print.  I felt so sassy when I wore that...every step showed off the ...

Bowling Alley Is Closing.....Now What? from Quilting My Way

 This morning I was up early. Didn't feel like sleeping in. I try to get up around 8 anymore because Patrick doesn't like me taking a shower before then. Lucky me. I'd rather be up and moving then wait. 

The day started out pretty good. I picked blueberries and will have a few for breakfast. I have enough out there for a small batch and then it will be done. 

I then went to work on my beading. I wanted to get as much in today as I could. 

I'm now at 153/580 done. I ...

Missing My Florida Fiber Friends from Quilts + Color



These are my friends who I  have so much in common with. We all love to create with fiber, paint, dye and share. They were all there for me at my Florida Ice show to help out with the crowd. 
Right now we are all spread out around the country. Sure do miss each one of them.

Quilting At Moms from Quilting My Way

 This morning I was out the door and on my way to moms. She called just before I got there to tell me to park in her garage. When I got there, the garage didn't have room for me. She has too much stuff on the left side of her garage for me to even get in there. The neighbor was having his RV in the road and wanted to let us all know he would be in the roadway. So, we needed to be aware of that. 

I worked on the squirrel on the Forest Galorest quilt. 

 

I ...
