Christmas Ribbons from Appalachian Quilts

I have blogged before about quilts I have made over the years - some of them I love, some, well, not so much.  As a shop owner, you are tasked with making samples.  Samples of new patterns, samples of new fabric lines and samples for classes are all necessary to help customers envision what the fabric/pattern would look like.  Not everyone has the same taste as you, so you have to stretch yourself.  Sometimes you end up liking something way out of your comfort zone, so I never really minded much.

When I made this Christmas Ribbons quilt, I absolutely ...

Batik Bowtie Quilt from Appalachian Quilts

Yup - I finished another UFO!  This was a class I taught - I'm pretty sure it was one of our mystery quilts.  I miss those Friday Night Mystery Quilt nights!  We had so much fun.  Usually, we brought potluck.  Class started at 6 and went until midnight-ish.  The best part of it was the fellowship.  Why does this virus have to take away our fellowship?  *sigh*

I do love batiks.  I go back and forth between traditional and batiks when it comes to fabric.  I think that's why we stock so many.  (We have hundreds of bolts in stock ...

Fall Frolic is Finished from Pointless Quilter

It's been a while since I have posted.  Sorry about that.  Life does seem to get in the way of doing things that need to be done. 

I did have a quilt finish.  I finally finished the Bonnie Hunter (Quiltville) 2019/2020 Mystery quilt.  I didn't do a lot of fancy quilting.  It was so busy that it wouldn't have shown anyway and I'm getting to the point that getting it done is better than letting it sit there.  I did do some fall leaf design in the border though. 

It turned out less mottled than ...

A Half a Year Later... from The Modern Diary

So I really need to get back to blogging and reading my blogs.  I miss it.  I have a few more days until the school year is over (teaching from home due to Covid 19) and we move to Milwaukee!  My daughter Hannah is pregnant with my first grandbaby (Coleman's wife has six kids and one grandkid but we never see them and well it is a long story...) and due the end of September.  We found a house about 15 minutes from her and less than ten from my video relay job (I am transferring).  I am so ...

2019 Quilt and Cross Stitch Parade from Pointless Quilter

Even with this being the crappiest year, I have surprised myself on how much I did get done.  I had 13 items on my 2019 Goals list and I was able to finish 8 of them.  (Orange Jamestown Landing, Good Fortune BH Mystery) Black/Tan Idol quilt, Guild mystery, Moda Blockhead, Consignment Blue quilt, Trick or Treat, Material Girl Challenge-curved leaves) 

Cross Stitching has been added to my hobby list which was a blessing to have since I spent a lot of time sitting in a hospital and rehab with my dad.  So without any further ado...

The Quilts...

A Cross Stitch Finish and Bonnie Hunter Mystery from Pointless Quilter

It's been kind of  slow month.  My machine (Bernina 750) has been in the shop for the past two weeks so not a whole lot of quilting going on.  But I did finish a cross stitch piece.  It's a Prairie Schooler Santa.  See photo above.  This is the one with the Sewing Machine.  I also have the pattern with a quilt and that will be the next one I work on.  They are pretty easy patterns and they use mostly the same DMC colors so they all coordinate.  They have an annual Santa.  The one with the sheep ...
