The end of 2018 from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

Thought I had better try and catch up with you all before the year is gone.  November/December have been hard months for me health wise and I got back home for Christmas on Christmas Eve Day.  Yay, thank you Lord.  Spent Christmas with some of our family.  Photos coming.
Might not be a lot more posts in 2019, we will see what progress I can make.  However, there is still a strong urge to kill that stash, so I'm hoping to do a little more stitching yet.  Hoping to infect (lol) one of my granddaughters with the bug ...

black licorice--a completed quilt from Crazy Mom Quilts

Welcome to finish it up Friday!

First off, thank you soooo much for your kind comments on my previous post. I am truly and deeply touched by all of your kindness and words of support. To answer the question that was asked so many times, yes, I do plan to leave my blog up as a resource. The other night at dinner I told my husband, "my blog really reached a lot of people". You should have seen the incredulous look he gave me, along with a big old "Duh!!!" We shared a good laugh after that. It has been ...

Finished Sajou Mini quilt from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

I have finished my first sewalong with Lori from Humble Quilts.  Here is a link for you to visit - Humble Quilts and I'm sure you will enjoy a visit to her blog.  Two of my friends have said I should make this bigger, but then it turns into a WIP and I'm not sure I want that.  Much nice to say it is finished.  Hoping to quilt it over the weekend to be properly finished of course.  What do you think?

Best of all, it has all come from my stash.  Making some inroads here (she says positively ...

Progress for 6and6in2018 and all that... from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

has happened in the last six weeks has halted some progress, but I'm quite pleased at what I did manage to achieve.  After the medical hassles mentioned last I managed to get a bladder infection and then react afterwards to the antibiotics.  Ho hum, it goes like that sometimes.  Now it's onward and upwards I reckon.

So I have managed to make some progress on Danielle's quilt which only needs the 5.5 inch and 3.5 inch HST's made.  Unfortunately, because I have changed the initial direction for the fabrics in this quilt I felt ...

A scrap of this and a scrap of that... from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

Is all I have managed to get done since my last blog.  It has taken longer than I thought to get back my energy.  However, we are getting somewhere now. I have finally managed to sew the mystery top together and have chosen the frame and border fabric.

And now onto the large sized HST's for Danielle's quilt.  Got all the little ones finally finished - 350 of them.  Now only the medium and extra large ones left to do.  Hopefully these will go a lot faster being bigger and less of them.  Gosh I'm hoping to make ...

A Winter rose... from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

What a lovely surprise to have Kerry bring in this lovely wee collection of flowers from my 25yr "Clair Matin"  rose.  It's the middle of winter and we have had some boomer frosts this past week.  Has been a real gift for me as I am just back from a weeks stay in hospital.

 Just a cold that decided to take a left turn instead of the exit!  All good now and the last 4 days were in our little local medical ward.  It's like being treated in the warmth of your own home, and the nurses and ...

Little Plant heads from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

Today I'm shamelessly promoting my DIL's YouTube channel and it does use scraps! LOL
Just slightly different scraps to our fabric ones.

A quick update on my scraps - the new direction I have taken on Danielle's quilt is progressing well.  Having such a lot of triangles already cut out has made a big difference.  Almost finished all the small sizes - 2"  and 25" and the larger ones will not take as long as there are fewer to make.  Now onto my DIL's scrap use.

I just love this series of videos my lovely DIL Kea has ...

Scrap Happens 2018 from Becca's Crazy Projects

I have several bins full of fabric scraps, little blocks, and even big blocks. Sometimes the bigger blocks come from testing a new-to-me block or construction method. Sometimes I make more than a couple blocks for a bee and hold back the few that don't make the cut. Other times, I just make too darn many blocks. When the bin has enough blocks, it is time to make another quilt. 
This is another of those quilts. There isn't a real rhyme or reason to layout. I try to match up elements to make interesting things. Like that big ...

Been busy ... from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

Trying to make some progress.  I see I forgot to put the photo of Travis in my last post...hmmm maybe I was worse than I  Here he is trying to fit into Kerry's slipper - such a daft cat.

Travis has an absolute fascination with shoes and we have to keep our good leather shoes out of his way.  He likes to sharpen his claws on them and he has already lost at least three of his lives in regards to my lovely (expensive) shoes.  Travis lives a very dangerous life indeed.

I also made  big decision ...

Oh no! Look what I found!!! (lots photos) from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

It's been a little bit cooler over the last week, which has been a welcome relief.  Today felt positively cold this morning, but it soon warmed up by the afternoon.

 The other day, DH decided it was time to sort through all of the "stuff" that had literally been shoved into the conservatory at the back of our house and forgotten.  Unfortunately for me, there was a large rolling bin full of ..... you guessed it!!
UFO's.  More blooming UFOs is just what I needed.  Well, like a hole in the head, I should say.

So I sat down ...

“A Prayer For Zachary” Blocks Are Almost Done from Eric the Quilter


This was no easy task, but it is almost done. A couple pieces still need to be added here and there, but for the most part, the base of the blocks are done. Now to start adding texture with the tulle, netting, ribbon, and lace. I’m going through a lot of water soluble stabilizer, but I think the results will be ridiculously awesome! You can see some of the white circles are already starting to show up on the quilt blocks. In those spots I took the tulle, ribbon, scraps, netting, and what not, and stitched it down to ...

A Lovely Rain and other oddities... from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

We have been blessed to have had three good doses of rain this month, which is quite unusual for Hawkes Bay.  We spend most of our spring/summer/autumn praying for rain, as we are traditionally a very dry area with hot summers - well, our definition of hot anyway!  At the moment our lawns are green and still need mowing, much to DH's disgust.  However, the garden does look so fresh after good rains, and we don' t have to stand out there and water.

This day lily is so gorgeous.  It is actually a more rusty red than ...

More Scarves From More Scraps from Eric the Quilter


I’ve been a busy little sewer! Well, at least I’m trying to be. When I started making these scarves out of my scraps I had no idea how much fun they would be! I have a green one currently in the works, as well as a pink one, but they still need to have the topper put on, and sewn more. The only trick is, you have to stitch enough to secure everything in place, but not too much to make it too stiff. It’s a little tricky finding the right amount, but once you get the ...

Busting My Scrap Pile!!! from Eric the Quilter


I have all of these scraps from the commissions I used to do. At first, I figured I would make one last Zelda quilt to sell, but decided to do something else with them. I’m working on a project called “A Prayer”. I’m not ready to say who the prayer is for, but as soon as I am, I’ll tell you the full name of the quilt. Until then, just enjoy all of the lovely green fabric I have lying around!

Sparkle - A Scrap Quilt Finish from Becca's Crazy Projects

Last month I shared a scrappy quilt I made during the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild annual retreat.

I got back to work on it. I loaded up my backing, batting and quilt top. Basted it on the frame and got quilting.
I had planned on using several quilting motifs, but mostly it ended up just being a bunch of swirls. I like swirls.
I also planned on using several colors of thread. I ended up using only two colors. A somewhat mustard color that blended with the borders and white for the big white section.
Some feathers made there way ...

So Many Strips from Becca's Crazy Projects

When I get to the end of a piece of fabric I try to cut it to usable sizes. I cut my binding at 2.5" and use a double-fold binding so I often cut my scraps to 2.5" wide and save them away for a rainy day. I've been meaning to use some of these to make something for a while. Instead of spending more money on more fabric, I decided it was time to pull out these strips and make some blocks. I was inspired by Bonnie Hunter's Hourglass Leader Ender challenge from 2016 for ...

Sparkle - A Scrap Quilt from Becca's Crazy Projects

I grabbed my bin of 4.5" crumb blocks as a project I might, maybe get to during the Baltimore MQG retreat. Somehow, this became my primary project on Thursday. I started playing with the hundreds of squares and encouraged my guild-mates to lend a hand. I would go to my station, sew some half-square triangle units and look over to see what the design wall looked like.
I rearranged units regularly until I had something I thought would work. Then, it was late and I had had enough of sewing for the day. (Crazy, I know.)
Friday morning I ...
