I May Have A Scrap Problem... Goodbye March, Hello April! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Wow!  How fast is this year flying by, right?  It's hard to believe, but it's already April.  It's been a good year so far, and I do believe that I've come to love scrap sewing!  

At the end of February, I decided that for my March scrappy goals I wanted to quilt my Long Time Gone quilt and finish the top of my Gypsy Wife quilt.  And I'm happy to say that I met both of those goals!  Here's my Long Time Gone...

I May Have A Scrap Problem... Gypsy In The House! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Scraps, scraps everywhere - they can really consume you, can't they?  But every so often, it's nice to have a finish, and be able to look at it and know that you took something that could have been thrown away and turned it into something beautiful.  You may have seen this post about my Long Time Gone quilt...


...and today, I'm happy to say that now I can add Gypsy Wife to the (nearly) finished column!  I went back and looked through my pictures, and found this one, dated August 8, 2017.


That was the day ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A BIG Finish!!! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Wow!  It's already Friday!  And since our whoop whoop party was pre-empted last week, I bet I'm not the only one with a lot to whoop about this week!  So let's get started...

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


Maybe you remember this picture - taken the day I finished my Long Time Gone quilt top.  Notice the date on the top?  That's right - July 10, 2017.  That. is. pitiful.  I had every intention of hand quilting this top, and it's been sandwiched for more than a year.  I did a little bit of hand quilting, but nowhere near as ...

Make-A-List Monday - Back to Business As Usual! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Well, last week was an interesting change of pace!  If you didn't catch them, I invited guest bloggers to highlight each of this year's five Hands2Help charities, one each day of last week.  Which meant that I didn't have a Make-A-List Monday post last week.  So let's take a look at how my list from two weeks ago went, then I'll show you what I did last week...

1.  Finish quilting the customer quilt (without mistakes this time!)
Done, thankfully!  And with no further problems!


2.  Keep working on the vintage quilt repair ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? What a Week!!! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

This week has just flown by, hasn't it?  Hard to imagine, but it's already Friday - and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  I hope you're ready - I know I am! - so let's get started!

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

What a week it has been!!!  Monday morning I got up, all ready to load up my frame and quilt a customer quilt.  I was going all gung ho on it, but when I rolled it up, this is what I saw......


Needless to say, it was NOT a good start to the ...

Make-A-List Monday - Buckling Down! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

After spending a beautiful long weekend in Asheville celebrating my birthday, I'm back home and ready to buckle down to work - because Christmas is coming faster than fast!  

Let's take a look at how last week's list went...

1.  Work on Emmy's annual quilt.
Well in progress!  Here's a picture of how it stands today...



I think I'm about halfway through piecing the top.

2.  Finish up the thank you notes for A Heart For Texas.
Honestly, I meant to take these with me on our trip and address envelopes in the ...

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

Hi, all!

Monday is here again and that means it's time to take stock, make a list, and check it twice!  So we'll start with the "take stock" part and see how I did last week...

1.  Work on the commission T-shirt quilt.
Done!  I deconstructed all the blocks earlier in the week, and laid out a potential layout today.  This still needs some tweaking, but it's a start!



2.  Keep working on pillow covers for the church project.
Done! I've been having a lot of fun with this project... can you tell?









And I even ...
