Cutting Binding/Flannel Scraps from Quilts....etc.

I have just so much left over from the Murrieta Stars quilt kit – that has really pleased me.  I was able to enlarge the quilt, have plenty left over for binding and have enough left for something else.  Especially if I have left overs from the second flannel quilt kit. Strips for binding – […]

Birds, Stars, & Baskets from Quilts....etc.

A variety of work was done yesterday.  I thought it was about time to get the flannel back out and figure out what I needed to do to enlarge the quilt a little bit.  I added an almost 3 inch border strip to the sides to finish that area off.  I still need to add […]

Murrieta Stars from Quilts....etc.

This quilt is coming along really well and I am almost done with it – and I still have extra fabric!!  So good too because it needs one more border about 5 inches wide on the length side and a narrow border on the width to tie it together for the last border.  Right now […]

Scrappy Baskets from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday was so sunny and low 70’s that I got some brush cleared in the morning and was so busy with that and laundry that I didn’t get around to any sewing all day long until evening.  I have stacks of the 2.5 inch squares ready to sew into chains for the borders of the […]

More on the Stars from Quilts....etc.

Finished the quilt to what it looks like in the original pattern now it is time to enlarge it a little.  I got the backing sewed together even though I won’t be quilting it for awhile so I could lay it out on the floor and measure and know for sure that I could enlarge […]

Murrieta Stars & Other Things from Quilts....etc.

Back to the stars.  Yesterday I wanted to see just how much backing fabric did I have and would I be able to enlarge the quilt just a little more – mainly so it will be a little wider.  For me that is easiest by laying it all out on the floor and see what […]

Contemplating Binding from Quilts....etc.

Usually I know what fabric I will use for binding a quilt some time during the process of quilting the quilt or even as I finish making the top – putting the fabric aside while making the quilt.  But with a scrappy quilt that isn’t always possible  I was looking fabric over yesterday trying to […]

Yesterday was a very wet day – we had just slightly over one inch of rain on Friday, although it did rain again during the night it didn’t do much more but the rain brought in a cold front and it didn’t get above 55 degrees and very cloudy for Saturday.  I didn’t bother with […]

Murrieta Stars from Quilts....etc.

Good thing this kit seems to have a lot of extra fabric – I went and cut out too many pieces of this border fabric!  Still plenty left over so I feel I will have plenty but making a mistake like that could have really messed this quilt up if I had been barely having […]

Sewing Day from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday I had to admit finally that I had over done it with the outside work and didn’t do much.  I had lost my energy.  My green beans finally got planted and the grass got cut (I’m sitting for that how difficult is that) but after that I came in the house and between reading […]
