Six Rows of Birds from Quilts....etc.

I think I will not do borders but check and see if I have enough fabric left to do two more rows of birds – I really didn’t want to do more birds but I just can’t think of something that I want for borders and thanks for all the suggestions.  As sick of piecing […]

A Little of This and That from Quilts....etc.

I really couldn’t get in a sewing mood on Sunday for some reason, I did get done with a little on several projects though but it didn’t feel like a productive day  – it was a rainy chilly day so it was an inside day – it actually “snowed ice pellets” two different times that […]

Bird Brain from Quilts....etc.

Lots of sewing got done on Saturday – it was a chilly light rain kind of day.  Nothing to do after I got home from exercise except sew or read – right? and I wasn’t in a reading mood so sewing it was. I got long rows of birds sewn together – all of them! […]

More Applique and Birds from Quilts....etc.

Although I added a couple more birds to the wall I didn’t get done with as much as I would have liked to.  I was out much later in the afternoon then I thought I would be and that put me far enough out in the afternoon that by time I got home it was […]

Quilting and Applique from Quilts....etc.

Ok lets get started.  After getting the applique ready on Tuesday I sat down in the evening in front of the tv for a short time to watch NCIS current season show and got started on the applique for Morning Glory – I continued on it last night while the news was on thinking I […]

Morning Glory from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday morning I sat down at the work table and got busy glue basting pieces to the background rectangle.  Here is what is done and how I am doing it as there had been some questions on what I do with the paper templates – and that is what they are just paper templates made […]

The Best Laid Plans from Quilts....etc.

I really had intended to get my Morning Glory pieces glue basted in place – but things happen and plans change.  The morning out took a little longer than planned – we needed to bring the car in to finally get the repair work done from the fender bender last month – the check finally […]

Handful of Scraps from Quilts....etc.

About my thread that I am using for quilting — several have said they couldn’t tell what color I am using so here are close ups.  I use King Tut variegated thread for some of my quilting.  Some say they do not like it for quilting but I have been using it off and on […]

More Birds and Applique from Quilts....etc.

Saturday more birds were added to Bird Brain on the wall and I put them in longer rows to see what I needed to do still – and then of course I got side tracked and didn’t figure it out!  Now they are in 5 longer rows – right now without the blocks sewn together […]

Many Projects from Quilts....etc.

Several projects were going – I started the morning cleaning off part of the sewing table so that I could pick out the fabric for the next applique pieces on Morning Glory – the templates were cut out the day before and I showed a photo then of the center rectangle I am working on.  […]

I Was Looking At My Fabric from Quilts....etc.

and you know where that leads – looking at your fabric and seeing things on your shelves – I start to pull things off thinking “what can I make from this” and then I remember patterns that I have or get ideas and I immediately want to start 2 more projects!  Oh no I can’t […]

Quilting Hexies & Applique from Quilts....etc.

This hexie quilt seems to be flying along and I have to keep reminding myself it is because it is small not because I am super quilter LOL – almost to the half way already – roll it down once more and I might be reaching that magical half way point green hexie. Handful of […]

Progress on a Few from Quilts....etc.

Between work on projects on Friday night and then Saturday during the day I got a bit done.  Look at this design wall – I am so glad I have a full wall – if you can you should do this – you see your work in progress and you don’t forget what needs work!  […]

Applique and Piecing from Quilts....etc.

I think I have it figured out what all I have to do to fix the mistakes that I made this past week on Hertfordshire Quilt – and I have two of the strips taken apart and fixed to the right size – two more sides are taken apart and need to be re-stitched.  This […]

A Little of Everything from Quilts....etc.

Well I guess almost everything in the sewing room that is going on.  I made progress on quite a few on the rainy Sunday that we had. The shawl folded in half so I could measure it and see where I was – it is supposed to be 90 inches so about 2/3’s finished then […]

A Slow Day from Quilts....etc.

It was still cold yesterday and I should have gotten a bit of quilting and sewing  done but I didn’t – I was reading a bit instead.  I found a new to me author and a lighthearted series – the first book is Coming To Rosemont by Barbara Hinske – sometimes I just need lighthearted […]

New Years Day–Cold! from Quilts....etc.

it was so very cold here yesterday and again today what a way to bring in the New Year – although I know plenty of you in the states were in the same shape (or worse) then we were  – we in the south take pride I think in whining and complaining about cold weather  […]

Glue Basting from Quilts....etc.

So the next step for Morning Glory is to start glue basting pieces down and then applique in place – then glue baste more pieces down and applique and on and on it goes until the piece is finished. Picking up from yesterdays post I got some of the leaves cut out and some acorns […]
