Panama Pyramids and Others from Quilts....etc.

Today is the link up for SoScrappy’s RSC19 challenge and I got my orange pieces done for my Panama Pyramid quilt – which doesn’t have a lot of it done! But this will be going for another year or so – one to take my time with month by month until it is the size […]

Hexies and Quilting from Quilts....etc.

First thing I did yesterday was get that row of hexies finished and then I moved the rows closer on the design wall so I could get a better feel for measurement of this piece – with what is finished it would be about 21 x 49  I think – it can be hard to […]

Hot and Humid from Quilts....etc.

Maybe the rest of this week seeing as it is to be hot and humid I will get more work done in the house in the sewing room – I sure do not feel like I have gotten much done other than quilting. My backing fabric and thread arrived for the quilt Crossroads which is […]

Good Fortune from Quilts....etc.

Quilting has been coming along really well on this quilt – a couple more weeks maybe 3 at the most and it will be done I think.  I started quilting it on March 4th and have only taken a couple days off from quilting it here and there – over 100 hours put in on […]

Hand Work from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday was a day with a little bit here and a little bit there while visiting with Melanie.  I got the sweater out and I got the front on one side done up to where the shoulder will be.  There will be a ribbing going around the neck and down the front to the bottom […]

A Little Quilting from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday was a nice day in the morning and I spent the morning out cutting grass – my back is better and will get back to the garden in smaller doses this week and try to not over due it again!  Storms came in the afternoon and you would think I was able to get […]

Morning Glory from Quilts....etc.

When I get in the mood for applique I can really get moving on it.  Once the color started to be added my interest grew!  The red tulips were finished yesterday afternoon and I started on one blue flower.  This is only moving so quickly as I was not doing any gardening again yesterday while […]

Applique and a Quilt Top from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday was a no exercise day – my lower back was acting up – too much garden work will do it to me so no garden work for the rest of the week so it will not get real bad – I know when to say enough is enough – so instead I sat out […]

A Little Applique from Quilts....etc.

Once I got the colors added to the applique piece  Morning Glory it immediately interested me more and I have one green vine almost all the way added to the piece.  I will get both of the vines needled turned first and then work on the colors – two of the blue flowers I found […]

A Little Quilting A Little Gardening from Quilts....etc.

The rain has gone away for now and the sun is back and the temperatures are rising this week – into the mid 80’s this week and 60’s at night – odd as it was just in the 40’s at night last week and barely in the 60’s! Spring in Arkansas – weird as always! […]

Morning Glory from Quilts....etc.

Morning Glory is ready for the next step of construction!  I had the top spread out on my work table yesterday, cutting pieces and glue basting in place.  The freezer paper templates stay on the piece until it is glue basted in place and then I take the paper off carefully and save it for […]

Lost and Found from Quilts....etc.

I know we as quilters with boxes of supplies stashed all over our sewing rooms that sometimes overflow to other parts of the house have probably had this happen to you as well as to me –  somehow a small box of fabric meant to be used with the scrappy flannel hexies was put aside […]

More Rain from Quilts....etc.

We didn’t get a lot of rain but it rained off and on from afternoon to evening yesterday – and it felt so cold for early May – only in the low 50’s – not unheard of but not something that happens often here in May.  One would think I got a lot of sewing […]

A Rainy Day from Quilts....etc.

It was raining all day yesterday but not as heavy as the weather forecasters had said for our area, as I am writing this at almost 7 last night it probably turned out that we got a lot more in the middle of the night!  So other than running out to the dentist (cleaning and […]

A Little More on the Hexies from Quilts....etc.

The row from the other day got pressed and as I was adding it to the wall I noticed I somehow got some of the line up of color wrong so I had to unpick some and put them back together and then I got another row put together as well and pressed – 4 […]

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

Yesterday I got busy on making the 36 patch blocks to go with the star block for the RSC19 challenge.  I will show those two blocks and then link up on Saturday for how they look with the star and the other blocks.  Very bright!  I find orange has become a color I like and […]

Quilting and Rain! from Quilts....etc.

Rain and more rain – it doesn’t seem to want to leave us for more than 12- 24 hours before it starts again!  Our two day total is 2.5 inches and more coming later today.  We have heard of the small tornadoes that hit numerous areas in eastern Arkansas – all small and some damage […]

Pieced a Row from Quilts....etc.

One out of 12 rows done on the hexies!  this row was machine pieced yesterday.  It finished at 50 inches – my table is 54 inches long so I think this will work out – so rough measurement for a table runner would be 36 x 50 and the table is 42 inches wide (42×54).  […]

Hexies on the Wall from Quilts....etc.

I have all my trio’s of hexies made and pressed and now up on the wall ready for me to start to sew the rows together.  This is actually kind of a drab project to me – not bright in the least but it was all left over from a flannel quilt made about 2 […]
