Ready to Get Back to Quilting from Quilts....etc.

I think my fingers have rested enough and so it will be back to quilting on Murrieta Stars.  The finger tips were not real bad off and the 3 or 4 days that I took off helped them – I also wore white gloves with thickly coated fingers in Vaseline over night for several of […]

Primary Colors & Sewing Room from Quilts....etc.

Well Primary Colors is done – well that is other than one little spot of thread that I have to fix that I didn’t spot before – it has been washed and dried and finished at 76 x 86.  Overall this was a fast quilt, if it hadn’t been for sewing machine troubles I would […]

More Peaks from Quilts....etc.

I should have known better when last week I said I wouldn’t show any more photos of the sewing room until it was done.  I have so looked forward to being back in my new improved sewing room since January when we moved everything out of it that I can’t stand not sharing. So for […]

A little more accomplished – Design wall is up!  Ready for a quilt. Here is a close up of how the flannel covered boards stay up – they are pretty tight but it needs something to hold them to the wall – Mike screwed in the frame yesterday – a wide piece on top and […]

How To Make a Design Wall from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday was a very busy day – one thing after another.  I spent the morning organizing the area of the sewing room that is part way behind the door – you can see the shelving area that I showed yesterday in one of the photos.  I didn’t want to get rid of my old cutting […]

Applique and Binding from Quilts....etc.

What a busy day yesterday was!  First binding, then leaves, then a cleaning frenzy. I got the binding machine stitched on Primary Colors and it is now ready for the hand stitching to the back. I hope to work most every evening on this binding this week so I can be done by the weekend. […]

Ready for Binding from Quilts....etc.

Quilting is done – I did six lines in the ditch going down the rows of the signature blocks to kind of tie it all together and you can’t even see the stitches from this photo.  The binding has been cut, sewed together and pressed.  I will get it attached today.  All clipped in place […]

Fabric ones that is.  I got more leafs cut out for Fall Harvest and more of the last border vine done too – not finished but close.  I need to get more – I’m figuring about 50 leafs should do it. And I got the quilting all done in this direction.  I am going to […]

Primary Colors from Quilts....etc.

Back to machine quilting on the raffle quilt.  Not my favorite thing to do. Why did I volunteer a quilt for a raffle for the library – I must have been temporarily unbalanced.  Almost half way done now – I would have been half way for sure except for being out part of the afternoon […]

On To Primary Colors from Quilts....etc.

I have about 5 weeks to get this quilt quilted and bound for the raffle for the library and of course once I got started I started to have tension issues which I never have with my Juki!  Yuk – I am horrible at adjusting tension.  So I am taking a break from that and […]

New Quilt with Primary Colors from The Root Connection

I must be in the zone! It has been three days of non stop sewing. The pink quilt is still relatively pink.

I haven't changed it much since you saw it here in the previous post but I found another project in the "Lost and Found" bin.


It is calling for attention but it will have to wait because I started a new quilt just yesterday. 

In the morning over the cup of tea, my husband asked, if I have made a quilt with primary colors.

Did he mean with yellow, blue and red?

Yes, that's what he ...
