What I did on Quilting Day weekend. . . . . . from Books, Hooks, Sticks, etc.

Here we are on the day after St. Patrick's Day and 2 days past National Quilting Day.

I actually finished quilting a quilt on Saturday. . . . and I had only started quilting it Friday evening!
Here is one view:

Here is another view:

This quilt was made by a friend of mine with blocks from a Row Robin our quilt guild did a while back. 

The black and white blocks were those made by her husband and his group; the red and black were made by her and her group.

The quilt is laid out on a double bed. . . and ...

Hands 2 Help 2018 from Needle and Foot

Hands 2 Help is a very popular on-line quilting event hosted by Sarah of Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  This event was first held in 2011 and seems to grow in popularity each year.  The “rules of the game” are simple.  Make a quilt and donate it.  Sarah always rounds up several worthy organizations who love receiving handmade quilts.  The quilter is also free to choose to donate to an organization close to her heart.  I participated in 2016 but not 2017.  This year I signed up again.  My plan was to donate the Postage Plus quilt I made for ...

Some Old Patterns, Some New Patterns from Sew, Rip, Sew

I'm still doing donation quilts but just haven't posted any for a while.  


Two more quilts made with fruits and vegetables.
I mentioned before that fat quarters multiply in the cupboard because I still have more of these fabrics and will probably make more food quilts in the future.


I was looking for something in one of my storage towers and came across these flying geese blocks.  I don't know what I was saving them for so I sorted them because there were two different sizes and added a few more and made two quilts.
The binding ...

Another quilt for Project Linus from Creating Chaos

Here is another quilt I've made for Project Linus.  This one uses black and white fabric with touches of red.   Earlier this year I read on the Project Linus website that they wanted black and white quilts for the Festival of Quilts this year so when I saw this fabric I knew I had to have it.  Sadly, it was not complete in time for FOQ but better late than never.

I used a simple rail fence pattern and then backed and bound it with red fabric.




I've just seen on their website that the theme for next ...

I May Have a Scrap Problem... Not Getting Much Better! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Wow, it has been a week!  I had so many commitments, and so many other things going on, that I didn't get much done on the scrap sewing front.  Boo!




I did, however, get my Gypsy Wife block for this week done!  This block is called Indian Hatchet, and the one on the left is for my GW quilt.  The one on the right is for the Michael Miller Friendship Quilt project, and is made from fabrics provided by Michael Miller Fabrics at QuiltCon.  The fabrics have been sitting on my worktable since February and it feels ...

Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? Charity Quilts Galore! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Here it is, Friday again - and you know what that means! It's time to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready?  Let's get started...

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

This week I designated Wednesday and Thursday as quilting catch-up days, and managed to knock out some things I've needed to finish for a while...


First up was this quilt top which a friend brought me.  It was partly hand sewn, partly machine sewn; the blocks were cut on the bias so they were stretchy; and the sashing didn't reach all the way out to the side edges in ...

Bad Blogger, Bad, Bad Blogger..... from Scrap Basket

So it's been 3 months since I last posted.....sigh, where does the time get to? I'm trying to decide whether or not to continue blogging or to just give it up since I seem to be so bad doing it on any kind of regular basis.

In my last post you saw my poor Winston Ways which had some unfortunate bleeding in the wash. Well, I'm happy to report that the problem has been resolved. A HUGE thank you goes out to Vicki Welsh and her fabulous information on dealing with bleeding fabric. After a nice ...
