Progress on Piecing from Quilts....etc.

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 […]

More Stars from Quilts....etc.

I said I needed to make four stars to have another row complete – I was wrong I needed 5 so I needed to trim some ends off and sew another – but now I have enough for 5 rows of the 6 needed for Murrieta Stars.  Five more stars to make and then I […]

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 […]

Not Much Sewing from Quilts....etc.

I was outside almost all day yesterday – first I went to Lowe’s to get plants for the garden, stuff to kill weeds and fertilizer!  I was going to plant – but I didn’t! instead I got sidetracked – there is (was) a stack of old firewood near the garden that I wanted gone.  Most […]

Postage Stamp and Stars from Quilts....etc.

I have had many complements on the Postage Stamp quilt and the Border.  Some have asked where did the pattern come from or did I design it?  I can’t taken complete credit for the border.  I kind of used a pattern but yet I didn’t cut one piece out from the book it came from.  […]

Murrieta Stars and Tulips from Quilts....etc.

Yes the tulips are still blooming – It sees like they have been around for a month!  I am surprised that they are still blooming and still getting new blooms while some of the older ones have fallen apart – nice to have ordered a mixed box of 50 bulbs – it has been such […]

Piecing Flannel from Quilts....etc.

Jumping in and starting the new quilt!  I just seem to be working on one new quilt after another recently.  After all I had all the pieces (most all) cut I thought why not.  I always like to start one and see how it goes together.  I did find that I want to cut the […]

Flannel & Quilting from Quilts....etc.

I had intended to start making the quilt blocks yesterday for the flannel quilt – Murrieta Stars but there was actually a bit more cutting to do.  There were a lot of squares that had to be cut in half diagonally and the set of 30 or so large blocks had to be cut into […]

Flannel, Hexies and Quilting from Quilts....etc.

Like I thought it was a very chilly day yesterday and the wind didn’t make it feel any warmer and it was cloudy  – when you go from capris and sandals to jeans, sweat shirt and socks you know it is chilly.  The heat was back on last night and will be for three nights […]

A Great Outside Day from Quilts....etc.

Everything I said I was going to do yesterday – I didn’t.  Even though the table was fully extended giving me room to work on the hexie border it was untouched.  It was 80 degrees outside – time to work on the garden, spread tick pellets all over the yard and walking trail that I […]

Hexies and Quilting from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday I was not home much so not a lot got done.  I did get some hexies thread basted – these were hexies that were already cut and left over from the center of Handful of Scraps.  I laid it out on the floor and played with hexies to see about the design that will […]

Murrieta Stars from Quilts....etc.

Time to get a new quilt started!  Finally I have cut into the fabric for the first flannel quilt kit that I bought over a year ago from Craftsy!  I am so pleased so far with the amount of fabric that was included – so far there seems to be triple the amount of fabric […]

On to the Border from Quilts....etc.

Not a lot of work done yesterday on quilts.  It took awhile just cutting fabric, measuring large pieces, figuring out borders for miter’s and such – is a big problem for me at times!  Math is not my strong suit.  Here I have things laid out on the table just looking things over and playing […]

Well this section of Handful of Scraps is finished! now to decide what I will do with the border.  I have enough border fabric for wide borders and will make chains of hexie flowers or hexies to go all the way around – to be determined on what it will look like. the background fabric […]
