Call Me Picky from Quilts....etc.

But I just couldn’t get the border to line up right on the Mystery quilt next to all that red/orange – the blue pieces just didn’t line up right next to the orangy area that it should have – each border ended up being too long by 2 inches and it just wasn’t right.  I […]

Ciera’s Quilt–Done from Quilts....etc.

Finally the binding is on and all that is left to do is put a label on it and mail it off – but I will wait until I have a day or two to breath and then get it off – been extremely busy lately – no rush it is not a Christmas present.  […]

Mystery, Quilting & Rulers from Quilts....etc.

I showed the box yesterday full of the Mystery Quilt pieces – I wonder what is next – not having done any of Bonnie’s mystery’s before I wonder will there be more pieces to make or are we now going to be constructing blocks – we find out today!  I have a bit of left […]

What is on The Crochet Hook? from Quilts....etc.

I hadn’t mentioned crochet lately and I did start a new project – still practicing before I start the sweater kit that I bought a couple weeks ago.  I had bought some yarn quite awhile back from Craftsy and of course it most likely isn’t quite right for a scarf as it is for socks […]

Quilting, Cutting & Changing It Up from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday was busy from the time I got started cutting fabric at about 10 AM until evening.  For part 4 of the mystery quilt I think I have all the fabric cut that I need to piece my units. I got my box out that has mainly yellow, gold, orange and a few salmon to […]

Mystery Quilt Part 4 and Quilting from Quilts....etc.

Where to start – I got a bit done on Sunday but it was one of those days when you wish you had stopped what you were doing and moved on to something else.  I wanted to get the binding on Ciera’s quilt only I decided to make the binding with a lot of colors […]

Ciera’s Quilt–Round We Go from Quilts....etc.

Finished – well except for the binding that is.  Getting it off the frame – I actually finished it faster then I thought I would and therefore didn’t have the backing ready for the next quilt so the frame is actually bare for a day! Now I need to look and see what I have […]

Hand Quilting from Quilts....etc.

Ciera’s Quilt is just about done – I have half of the final border left to do – 2 nights?  The quilting actually showed up for a change!  I finished the scarf that I showed yesterday but I need to get all the ends woven in on both scarfs so maybe they will all be […]

And the Mystery Continues from Quilts....etc.

I must say I am keeping up with Bonnie’s mystery quilt Good Fortune pretty well.  I was determined to not have it take a year to complete the quilt as it seems to be the case for many that make her mystery quilts.  So Part 3 came out yesterday and I have my pieces cut […]

Started the HST’s from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday morning I got busy and cleaned & oiled “Hazel” the featherweight and got busy with the hst’s that were all ready cut.  Got them done and will need to get fabric pressed today and run through the Accuquilt – you can cut about 6 layers at least at one time so it doesn’t really […]

It Was a Busy Day from Quilts....etc.

  Well we did not get the decorations all up and I didn’t do anymore yardwork – but I was busy Sunday anyhow.  I work up to sore hands – holding that blower and raking did them in but I was lucky and the stiffness worked out of them by mid morning.  I was working […]

More on Round We Go from Quilts....etc.

Seeing as I just posted the mystery quilt last night this will be short post and a little later in the morning than usual. I didn’t quilt last night but decided to give my fingers a rest and watched tv in the living room and worked on the scarf and a Daisy Chain block.  The […]

Ciera’s Quilt & Hertfordshire Quilt from Quilts....etc.

Ciera’s quilt is coming along nicely and will be done before I know it.  But it still has at least 15+ hours to go.  To break it up though and have something to work on from time to time in the day time hours (quilting for me is an evening thing) I got my book […]

Ciera’s Quilt & Sewing Rooms from Quilts....etc.

The quilting is coming along pretty well on this quilt – it is now more than half way finished.  It has been rolled down and I started in the middle block last night. These two blocks were done on Sunday night – it is still next to impossible to get the quilting on the red/white […]

Daisy Chain from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday I decided to get some of the Daisy Chain blocks stamped and cut out – I got  5 of them ready and even got one of them pieced – the stamping went much faster this time – yes hand stitching goes faster for me compared to EPP.  Using binding clips I clipped all pieces […]

Four Patches and Christmas Cactus from Quilts....etc.

Almost all of the left over fabric from the Christmas tree skirt has been cut up and sewed into 4-patches – I’m not sure what I will design from this still but it will be a table runner probably or maybe small wall hanging of some sort – Melanie might quickly make up a couple […]
