A Little Here A Little There from Quilts....etc.

Little by little things get done even if it doesn’t look like much progress is made at time.  The Morning Glory quilt still looks the same but I am part way done with the 3rd side and for my Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy I will take more stitches on that blue strip all the […]

Morning Glory–The Last Step from Quilts....etc.

Finally Morning Glory is off of the table and in my sewing area.  I am ready for that final applique of stitching the blue strip all around the sides for the finish touch.  I laid it on the floor after the glue dried for a photo – forgive the messy table in the photo – […]

Another day of not a lot of photos or things to blog about.  I did work but I wasn’t taking many photos.  Morning Glory had one more side done – it does take awhile I finger press the turn under allowance, line it up with the ruler pin in place and then glue baste – […]

Diamonds and Glory from Quilts....etc.

Morning Glory got taken off the wall and moved to the dining room table so I could work on the blue strip – it needs to be laid evenly in place and I find it easy to go ahead and glue baste to hold it down so I don’t get jabbed with pins.  The top […]

4 Projects from Quilts....etc.

Are you ever satisfied with just working on one quilt at a time?  I can’t seem to stick with just one project – yesterday I worked on 4.  I often times only spend 30 minutes on a project – go do outside stuff, housework, a walk – then come back and spend another 30 minutes […]

A Little More Morning Glory from Quilts....etc.

Decisions on Morning Glory still have not been made but I am leaning towards more work – at least the opposing corner – I can’t say if I would ever get all four corners done so really will need to decide soon.  Four blue flowers with the embroidered centers and then this corner will be […]

A Little Applique from Quilts....etc.

The only sewing I worked on during the daytime yesterday was Morning Glory and plenty of time reading and getting distracted!!  I did re-pot my tomato plants into much bigger pots – I quickly realized that the pots I had them in were not going to be large enough – they are now re-potted and […]
