Working On Another Quilt from Quilting My Way

 This morning I felt a lot better. I did stay home while Patrick went to his 8:30 am appointment. Sophie decided to let me know he left at 7:30 am. Then she let me know she wasn't happy about something at 8:30 am, so I finally gave it up on sleeping in. lol 

Oh, last night I flushed the toilet and it wouldn't shut off. Patrick was ticked because he had to get up in the middle of the night to TRY and fix it. So, he shut the water off and we went back ...

Making Changes from Quilting My Way

This morning I enjoyed sleeping in. lol 

After getting moving, I played a few games then went downstairs to work on that quilt top. I ended up taking the 2 sides of the border out. Then I decided to add the red between what is done and the blue that I took out. I'm adding another piece in it's place. 

 This is a 2 1/2" piece added to the sides. I got the 2 sides done, and decided I would stop. Wasn't in the mood to fight this. I had to trim the piece once again ...

While I Watch The Seahawk...... from Quilting My Way

 This morning I was up early to see if I could get my game done...nope. I was out the door by 9:30. Then made 3 stops along the way. I wanted to get Patrick a peanut butter doughnut like the one he got for me the other day. They didn't make that kind today, but they did have one like his maple bars but was peanut butter, so got that. They had some really good doughnuts. Now I have a place to go for doughnuts!

Arrived a little late at our meeting. Only Sandy and Cindy were ...

Working On A Top Again from Quilting My Way

 This morning Patrick was off to his golf tournament. I was going to enjoy the day to myself. I had a hard time trying to decide if I wanted to work on my beading or go downstairs. I know I need to get more tops done, so I headed downstairs. 

I was tired of seeing this on the wall. I decided to go down and get to work on it. 

Of course there are those days when things go wrong. At least this was the only thing that went wrong so far! I sewed the two square together twice. So ...

Another Meeting Day from Quilting My Way

This morning I headed to moms. It's Friday quilting day. I made us a Chai tea and then everyone started showing up. 

I worked on the half square triangles. 

Mom had pages and pages there for me to sew. I left her 9 pages as I did the rest. I was surprised at how much I was able to get done. Patrick surprised us all by stopping by and giving mom a strawberry pie. He went to the Mennonite bakery in Rochester. We used to stop there when we went to the casino, but we haven't been to ...

Playing With Blocks Today from Quilting My Way

 I headed over to moms to work on QOV quilts. I took that stash of stuff with me. We started separating them, Then Debbie said she would come over and I pulled everything out. I put the blocks on the kitchen table, the panels in the living room and the fabric in the bedroom. She took a few things, which made me happy!

Mom and I decided to put a panel quilt together, so we laid it out on the floor. 

We picked this one to work with. Mom wanted to put the strips there, over the border already on ...

Another Day At Moms from Quilting My Way

 It was quilting at moms today. We do this every Friday, so that shouldn't surprise anyone. 

I worked in the sewing room while listening to everyone. I worked on the half square triangles. Had to order more paper strips for mom. 

We got a LOT done! I just need to get moving on working on blocks. Must have enough to make 10 quilts at this rate!!

Came home and Patrick took me to Red Lobster. I was amazed at how much food they served! It was enough for 3 meals to me. Brought at least half if not more ...

Heat Wave Started in WA from Quilting My Way

 This morning I was off to moms. I took Nancy to the doctors office to get her records and then she came back with her friend Sandy. We had 7 of us show up. It was fun. Everyone worked on their projects and I worked on the half square triangles. 

I got a lot done and added them to moms pile. For lunch we made baked potatoes. I cooked them in the Air Fryer and they turned out crisp and great. 

Came back home. I got 1 row of beading done. It's took hot and we don't have ...

Finished Another Quilt Top from Quilting My Way

 This morning I headed over to moms. We planned on working on the QOV quilts. She's still cutting the squares for the 9 patch variation quilt. She was using my half square triangles. I accidently took her the 6" ones, so I need to remember to take over the 3" ones. I will do that on Friday. I took the tub that has the panels and blocks in them. 

We looked for fabric that we could use for the borders. 

We decided on this one. I need to iron it. I also need to cut the backing and batting ...

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY! from Quilting My Way

This morning Patrick brought up the cinnamon rolls for me to put in the oven. I made some last night and we let it raise over night downstairs where it is cool. They were really good this morning. 

Katt called to chat with her dad. I got to chat with her too. She's sounding really good. I do miss that girl of mine!

I finally went downstairs to work on the quilt top that I'm doing. I need to figure out a border for it. I will try to get that done soon so I can take the ...

From One Thing To Another from Quilting My Way

 This morning I had plans of what I wanted to do.....Yep! I forgot that planning doesn't work for me! Nope, my plans didn't work out as planned.

So, I went into the computer room and worked on our bookkeeping. Since I had trouble getting a new listing in QuickBooks, it took longer than I was planning....a good 2 hours more than I was planning. Then 1:30 pm arrived and I went downstairs. I called my mother's cousin and we chatted a good hour or more. Must be in the family to have chatters. Called ...

Quilting Day With Mom and The Rest from Quilting My Way

 Today I headed over to mom for our quilt meeting. I arrived early and we started working on cutting the fabrics. 

Everyone started to arrive and while mom cut the squares, I worked on the strips. I would give her 3 and 3 1/2" strips to cut into squares. We all got the tubs out and went through each of them. We divided them into groups - large fabrics, medium fabrics, small ones and scraps. Filled the tubs back up. Then I went and cut the strips of the scraps. I actually went through 2 of the smaller boxes. Then ...

Busy At Mom's from Quilting My Way

 This morning I headed over to moms. I took my Chia tea with me to make her some tea. That way I didn't have to go and buy her one. I also did a cold Chia tea for me and took it with me. 

I took all my tubs of QOV fabrics. When I arrived mom was out to the bank. I got started by getting a few things ready for mom. I pinned the corners of the blocks for her to sew. When she arrived we got going. I made her tea and then went back to iron ...

Sent The Afternoon Quilting from Quilting My Way

 This morning I was up and out the door for my doctors appointment. Working on getting my IBS under control. Oh, what fun. On my way to the appointment, where I turned to go into the hospital area, there was a LONG line of homeless parked on a 3 block area. I was shocked to see them all. 

After my appointment, I headed to moms. We are working on all those scraps from Sue K. She got the strips cut and sewn together. 

Mom had a good stack of strips ready for the quilt blocks. 

Nancy showed up, so we ...

Back To Piecing Quilts Again from Quilting My Way

 As much as I said I didn't like quilting as much as I used to. Sometimes I wonder if I ever really loved quilting. I have made several quilts in my life time, but I find I would rather cross stitch, bead, do embroidery or something else. I may be a 6 or 7th generation quilter, embroiderer, but I'm thinking that's where the line will end. Katt doesn't like to quilt. She's not a handwork person. Who knows, Phillip may surprise me and quilt. 

That being said, I found my morning downstairs working on a ...

Keeping Busy With QOV Projects And More from Quilting My Way

 Today Patrick was up and out the door before me. He had a doctors appointment and I wanted to get to moms before I got to our BE meeting. 

Arrived at moms around 9 am. Dropped off the strips and some fabrics for her to organize the strips. I also told her I could use more 3" and 3 1/2" squares for the variation 9 patches. I stayed and chatted with her for about 30 mins and then headed out to my BE meeting. 

Sandy beat me there. I picked up my ice tea and coffee for Sandy. Bev ...

Oven mitts from Granny Maud's Girl

One of the unfinished projects that has been lurking in my sewing room has been oven mitts.

Long ago, I bought some Insul-Bright insulated wadding, and I set it aside with some kitchen print fabric with the intention of making mitts. More recently, I realised that I could also use up quilt wadding scraps and some heavy wool fabric remnants I had in my cupboard.

The Insul-Bright came with a pattern for oven mitts, so I used that pattern and some cotton upholstery fabric remnants for my first test mitt. I only had enough fabric for one mitt, so that ...

Getting Some Blocks Made from Quilting My Way

 This morning Patrick reminded me that he wanted his golf cover fixed. So, I knew I would have to go down and sew it up. He gave it to me over a month ago, and I really didn't want to "mend" it. 

I made our cheese pie today. It's an easy recipe. I take cream cheese, beat it. Then add Cool Whip and beat it more. I add a little sugar (1/4 cup) and work that in as well. Once all that is done, I pour it into the pie crust - graham cracker. Then I put some ...

Finished Another Quilt from Quilting My Way

 This morning Patrick woke with the phone ringing. I didn't hear it. The doctor called to let him know about the study. He had been approved and if he wanted to continue, it would be about 2-3 weeks before surgery. He decided not to wait on surgery, and we are a go for Wednesday. He has a ton of appointments up there on Monday. It will be an 8 hour day and he doesn't think we need to go up for that with him, since we would be waiting all day for him. 

After the call he watched ...

Trying To Finish A Few UFO's from Quilting My Way

 This morning I wanted to sleep all day. I really couldn't get out of bed and slept till 10 am when I heard the beeping of the oven. Patrick made some rolls. I realized I took a couple pills that should have been taken together and it knocked me out. I rarely do that. So, I told Patrick, I won't ever do that again. 

Then I heated up the downstairs. I wanted to get a few things done. First I needed to get to work on the binding for the Christmas quilt I had Bill quilt for me ...
