What's in a Name Tag? from Becca's Crazy Projects

To help people get to know each other, the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild coordinated a name tag swap.

I decided that I want to do some tiny paper piecing to make sure I got it right. I designed a stack of tiny flying geese. I used Electric Quilt 8 to design the paper piecing papers. There is an option to print as many as will fit on a page, so I went with it. There was a printing problem (the user) so I ended up with two pages of these.
I grabbed my bin of scraps and make a couple ...

Scrapping away still from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

I'm not going to talk about the fact that it's already well into March. Much better to talk about fabric and projects and everything else except how fast time flies. That's what you get when you look in the mirror I told  myself.  Just don't look and you wont have to think about it.  LOL.
In my attempt to reduce my stash,  I may have been a little successful since I spoke with you last, because at least I haven't bought any new fabric!!  Progress has been made on a number of projects, and I ...

The Not Blue Ridge Beauty from Becca's Crazy Projects

I shared a little about my take on Bonnie Hunter's Blue Ridge Beauty in early February. I didn't have a bunch of blues, so I decided to make it with a bunch of reds I had on hand.

The block design is Blue Ridge Beauty from Bonnie Hunter's book Adventures in Leaders and Enders.
I decided to play with the layout in Electric Quilt (I use EQ8). I liked this layout so I rearranged the blocks until I had it on the design wall.
I used a technique called webbing to get the blocks all sewn up ...

The Not Blue Ridge Beauty from Becca's Crazy Projects

In an attempt to work through my ridiculous amount of fabric, I decided I should add one of Bonnie Hunter's projects to my list for the year. This year, I did not make a Get It Done UFO Challenge list. I finished all the quilts last year, and didn't have a stack to put on the list. I didn't even have an unfinished quilt beyond Good Fortune.

I'm not excited about putting completely nascent projects on the list. That doesn't mean I don't have plans for the year. Just that I don't have ...

Some Progress in 2019 from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

Okay, January has already disappeared off my calendar and I didn't get to post.  I can see that this year is going to go even faster than the last, but I put some of that down to less time available for me to do "stuff" in. Health has leveled out a little and we are managing to get back to our sewing machine so that is the most important thing.
Here are some photos of what I have managed to accomplish so far...


 This is my block for January for the BOM running in the Kiwiquilters Facebook group.  It ...

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 thought...lol.  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 ...
