Crossroads from Quilts....etc.

All of the blocks and rows for Crossroads are now sewn together and ready for a small border.  But the border is going to wait until late fall – I have put all the fabric together with the top  – it is just going to be thin strips (maybe 3″ of each) of two different […]

The Antique Sewing Machine from Quilts....etc.

I got it running!  It works how neat is that.  Now I just have to oil the insides and clean the outside of it a bit – and watch the video a couple times that I found to wind the bobbin – change the needle too.  I finally got the stitch regulator figured out.  I […]

Morning Glory from Quilts....etc.

Finally I got the embroidery embellishment on the hindquarters of the rabbits of Morning Glory and pressed the piece and it is up on the wall with the rest of the projects now.  It is getting kind of crowded up there!  I put the new EPP on the wall too as I finished the 3rd […]

Missouri Star Quilt Company–Part 2 & Morning Glory from Quilts....etc.

I bet you might not have know that Hamilton MO is the boyhood home of the founder of JC Penney – we all know the store is not doing so well now but it used to be a good store in years past.  One of the MSQC stores is named Penney’s – I think this […]

Heading Home from Quilts....etc.

This past week has been full of short stays and on the road driving a lot.  We stayed at one place just overnight and although it was a clean little campground there was nothing there, it was on the edge of a dying town – not even a small grocery market – after we set […]

Progress on Stitching from Quilts....etc.

Yes I have been doing a little bit of sewing in the campsites but not a lot – I guess I have really been taking a break from the needle and thread and of course the quilting frame seeing as that is at home.  But I have made progress on my applique the last couple […]

Morning Glory from Quilts....etc.

A little applique has been done – I have barely touched any sewing though and that is the way it normally is until I get into a routine while camping – this week as we are visiting our daughter we never know what we will be doing but next week it is off to the […]

Applique Prep Done from Quilts....etc.

Finally yesterday I got the center of Morning Glory completely prepped and ready for the project box – not leaving for awhile yet but nice to have one thing ticked off the list.  By late morning I had little applique pins all over the place holding pieces in place until I could glue baste. The […]

More on Morning Glory from Quilts....etc.

I will probably be working on prepping Morning Glory for the rest of the week.  I outline around the freezer paper with a fine point pencil or mechanical chalk pencil   and then I cut the piece about a 1/4 inch away from the mark.  When I get all the pieces done then I study placement […]

Prep Work–Morning Glory from Quilts....etc.

I spent yesterday morning getting freezer paper templates cut out for Morning Glory.  I think I have all the pieces needed – now I need to press them to the fabric selected, draw my turn under line that I always do but isn’t a must  – cut the pieces out and glue baste in place.  […]

Morning Glory from Quilts....etc.

It is time to get back to Morning Glory – I have neglected this quilt for awhile.  I want to get the rest of the pieces glue basted in place and get this piece ready to take along on our upcoming trip.  All that would be needed is the piece folded and put in the […]

My Table Is Clean from Quilts....etc.

I think it is time to get this table full of something again – I got the binding machine stitched to the child quilt “Critters” and then cleaned the table off.   It doesn’t usually stay this empty for long. I had enough yellow fabric left to do the binding with it so I will spend […]

Busy Day from Quilts....etc.

I stayed pretty busy Tuesday night and Wednesday with all sorts of projects.  I decided to take Tic Tac Toe off the design wall as it is now ready for basting and quilting (sometime next week?) and I put my oldest UFO up on the wall to remind myself that I have not finished the […]

Ready to Quilt from Quilts....etc.

By machine that is – I got my walking foot yesterday and my extra bobbins for the new machine.  I practiced a little bit and all seems to work.  I am still waiting for my quarter inch foot with guide to arrive but that should be in another couple days and do not need that […]

Cold Rainy Day = Sewing from Quilts....etc.

I hate cold rainy days – so chilly and we are getting too much rain.  At least 7 inches of rain since Friday night and the weather man says maybe 3 to 5 more inches by Saturday – this will be one rainy week – water everywhere.  The streams are high some roads in Arkansas […]

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 […]
