Scraps and more scraps from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

We had an excellent Zoom sewing session yesterday. We got to see two people that we hadn't seen in quite a while, so that was good to catch up with them. I was ripping something out, and now it's ripped out completely. That was a bit of a nasty job, but it's done.

I did spend some time puttering to try and get a handle on the stuff in Studio B. I got everything from the retreat put away, except those baskets of work that need to be done. They are still sitting in the middle of ...

Just do it!! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Back in November, we had our final show and tell for the Lilla quilt. This was our year-long class at Oh Look Fabric. I made all the blocks, but decided to make two lap-sized quilts instead of one huge one. One of the tops got sewn together for that final class and it even got quilted. If you scroll down that post to where I talked about my quilt that was quilted with wavy lines, I was on the fence about adding more quilting.

The quilt has been on my list of quilts to quilt since November - and basically, it ...

Lilla Show n Tell from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

I'm going to start with Lilla. The final class was this past Thursday.

This is the pattern that we used for the class.

Lilla by Lotta Jansdotter and Cheryl Arkinson

Essentially, there are 25 blocks in the quilt. Each block finishes at 9" and the cover quilt is made using four of each block. Yes - that makes a big quilt - 90" by 90". Everyone did their own thing ...

What happens at Monday sewing from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Ah - Monday - my favorite day of the week. It's our Monday sewing day and well, getting together with friends and enjoying a laugh (or two, or three, or - well you know what I mean) and getting a bit of stitching done at the same time. It doesn't get better than that.

I'm making progress on the current piece that I'm hand appliqueing. It's one of the big quilts that we did in our $25 class at The Hobby Horse in 2009!!!!  Yep - if I could clear up those quilts, I'd be laughing. So every ...

This is how we tidy up from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

I had the most amazing day cleaning up. I know - sounds boring, but I'm finding it very therapeutic to sort through things, decide that I do NOT need all that stuff and then devise a way to get rid of it. I have a pile of books about organizing. What am I going to do with those?? I don't think I'm going to need them after all!! While books are good, most books talk about how to organize what you have left - they don't really go into the issues that crafters have with all the stuff ...
