Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

 
On Saturday Annapolis Quilts for Kids was available to meet up and exchange finished quilts and pick up more. I dropped off four finished quilts and grabbed these six finished tops to quilt up. 
Sunday I cleaned the piles of stuff of my long arm frame, loaded a quilt and got it quilted. 
Then I loaded another one. It was nice to get back to charity quilting after so long. I'll work through the rest over the next few weeks. Have you found your quilting groove again? 

If you want to contribute but don't have the time or ...

Color by Number not once but twice from Sew Sunshine


I recently came across Caroline over at Sew Can She making another of her Color by Number quilts. This time she is focusing on the quilting doing a qal week by week. I was looking for more kid sized easy quilts to make for my project Quilts for Kids. Her color by number is a really simple strip quilt to make. I did have to adjust the size of the strip block to make a smaller sized quilt but the concept is still the same. 
When you read the directions (by the way the pattern is free on her page ...

Next Up baby quilt featuring charming farm fabric from Carried Away Quilting


When I saw Stacy Iest Hsu’s newest fabric collection, On the Farm, I just had to sew up a baby quilt. The fabric is darling, with vibrant colors and charming farmyard scenes. In keeping with the country theme, I paired this collection with Moda’s Indigo Chambray and decided to use my Next Up charm pack pattern. The result is a cheerful baby quilt that is gender neutral and hay bales of fun.


Making children’s quilts is so rewarding. For me, they bring back special memories of my kids when they were little. This particular quilt reminds me ...

A Finished Quilt from ... Cat Patches

It was kind of a busy day yesterday. I spent the morning in the garden. As I was taking my walk around, I found these two on squirrel watch in their catio.



My first stop was to check the fruit trees. I've been watching the cherries like a hawk...or a raccoon...or a squirrel. I'm not sure who's responsible for cleaning the tree, whether it's the mammals or the birds. Either way, they are still there. Kind of amazing. We're going to be gone next week, and I've worried about these ripening while ...

Sewing and Planning from ... Cat Patches

With Eliza still in the shop, I've been undecided about what to do next. But you might recall I was in the middle of making some masks when I stopped the day before. So, it made sense to finish those off. The person these masks were made for requested a western theme



When those were finished, I needed to clean up some. I had fabric thrown everywhere, which is what happens when I go digging through my scrap bins. Also, I had five yards of this paint fabric that needed to be sewn into a quilt back for the ...

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

As the world becomes a surreal place, I have been quilting less. This isn't a problem, just a shift in focus. This is the stack of quilts waiting for another Annapolis Quilts for Kids meeting. The March meeting was canceled. I might try to quilt a couple more this weekend as I still have supplies and finished tops. Hang in there, folks!

Making it in shades of black and white from Sew Sunshine

So far this has been a kind of a rough year for me health-wise and now it seems it will be so much more than rough for everyone. I am going to choose to keep working on my projects when I have good days because it really does make me feel better. 
I started sewing some of my black and white prints together back in Jan. I wanted mindless sewing so I made 4 big squares. 

I kind of think this would have made a fun quilt as is but I decided to cut them up and sew them back ...
