Sewing Day from The Cozy Quilter

I spent Monday at the weekly Oxford Guild sewing day.  I try to go every week, but was doing some volunteer work during November and December on Mondays, so have not been for a while.  It was fun to get back into sewing after the holidays.  I have been working on Tula Pink's 100 Modern Blocks sampler off and on since March 2019.  On Monday, I finished putting the top is a peek at part of it.

I will be making the backing this week and then taking it to the long arm quilter's house.  I ...

Busy Week with lots of Sewing! from The Cozy Quilter

I must say that retirement is agreeing with me!  I spent one day this week sewing with members of the Oxford Guild where I worked on the assembly of my Tula Pink 100 Modern Blocks sampler.  They had nice long tables for me to lay everything out for measuring the strips that go between the rows of blocks.  I could not do this at home.  I managed to get almost half of the quilt assembled by the end of the day and hope to finish the quilt top this coming week. 

I am still walking an hour every day, even ...

Crafters' Retreat from The Cozy Quilter

Christine and I spent the weekend at Camp...we each brought numerous projects with us and I am happy to report that progress was made on everything!

My ironing board is almost due for a new cover---ignoring that, you can see I worked on my flannel vortex baby quilt--my third flannel vortex quilt (I have also done one out of cotton quilting scraps).  This quilt involves lots of sewing, pressing, trimming, and then more sewing, pressing and trimming. I went home with some larger chunks, ready to be made into a quilt top.

I started a new Christmas quilt--no pattern ...

Last 6 Blocks DONE! from The Cozy Quilter

I spent today at a sew-in, making the last 6 blocks for my Tula Pink 100 Modern Blocks quilt.

I used my black and white stash for this quilt along with three fat quarters of Tula Pink fabric which I purchased at QuiltCon in Nashville in February this year.  

A few blocks are just black and white, but most have a little bit of colour in them.

Some of these fabrics have been in my stash for quite a while.  I used up the last bits of some of the fabrics but still have lots left of others.  The black ...

Comfort Quilt Assembly and a Few More Blocks from The Cozy Quilter

After a one hour walk this morning, I came home and got to work in the sewing room.  Pat and I are working together to put the Navy and White blocks together for the Elgin Piecemakers' September Comfort quilt.  19 blocks were handed in at our September meeting so I started my day by making one more block so I could do a 4X5 block layout for this quilt. I found the pattern for this block in one of my 100 blocks magazines. 

Next, I laid out all of the blocks on the floor in the hall outside my sewing ...

Coming Home--Trees ready to appliqué from The Cozy Quilter

Well, I am finally back at work on my Coming Home quilt.  I am a few months behind the crowd, but I will catch up, eventually!  Today, I prepped the appliqué trees for the next border.  Everything is glue basted and ready for me to sew by hand this weekend. 

I have my threads, my applique needles, my LED light and my thimble...I am prepared!

All these trees should keep me busy all weekend. 

I did some other sewing this week too...  This is November's comfort quilt block for the Elgin Piecemakers--Grey, yellow and white squares made into ...
