Tumalo Trails from Quilts....etc.

I ended up doing a lot yesterday but have way too many photos for one post as it covers three different projects so today is just Tumalo Trails and I will save the others for the next day. Tumalo Trails took two washings – I did pre-wash the purple back about 3 times before I […]

Moving Right Along from Quilts....etc.

Progress on binding for Tumalo Trails is going well – one more side left to do and then it can get tossed in the washing machine. My label – I order a package an etsy shop every couple of years, I think there are 15 labels in a package – something like that.  When I […]

A Busy Sewing Day from Quilts....etc.

I don’t know about you but when it is in the 90’s outside and very humid I tend to stay inside most of the day and other than running a few errands and going to the fitness center to exercise I stay home.  So I did get a bit done yesterday – 4 flannel blocks […]

Started the Binding from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday morning I got the binding pressed and machine stitched in place (I used the Babylock so it wouldn’t be sitting idle for too long!)  for Tumalo Trails – now on to the hand stitching part.  I got maybe a third of one side done (104 inches per side) It had been hard to see […]

Another Antique from Quilts....etc.

It has been mentioned numerous times that I have a Featherweight sewing machine that wasn’t working.  About 4 or so years ago I had some problems with it and I just didn’t want to spend money getting it fixed once again – this machine had been found on Ebay some years ago 10+ and I […]

Not Much To Show from Quilts....etc.

Saturday wasn’t a good day for getting things done.  I don’t know if any of you have had the newest vaccination for Shingles but you have to get a shot and then another one two months later.  I got one in early May with no reaction other than a sore arm but then I had […]

Love This Machine from Quilts....etc.

We have been home from our trip for about 3 weeks now and I have the Red Eye in running order and I must say I love it – it does a perfect stitch and I barely did anything to get it that way other than all the normal stuff – clean it well, oil […]

Tumalo Trails from Quilts....etc.

Tumalo Trails has gotten rolled down for the last time – it went on the frame February 24th and it looks like it will be done within a week.  Five months on the frame and one month I didn’t work on it because we were traveling – not bad for a 104 inch square quilt. […]

96 degrees = Sewing from Quilts....etc.

Just plain too hot outside to do much other than drive to exercise and the grocery store and then come home again.  At least it wasn’t humid.  I worked on the “soft books” or “quite books” for Melanie’s reading programs and got two of them done – I was going to reinforce some that she […]

It’s All In a Name from Quilts....etc.

Finally we are getting close to finding what the name of the block pattern is in the flannel quilt.  Lauren (no blog) left me a comment yesterday that this block is like a block she had seen (but slightly different) in Jinny Beyer’s The Quilter’s Album of Patchwork Patterns –  I did a search on […]

Another Nice Day from Quilts....etc.

Two nice days in a row – high’s only in the 80’s – so yes after high 90’s that is pretty nice.  I was out on the porch yesterday morning working on Daisy Chain and I got one more block (hexie) done – these are about 6 inches finished so a nice size when done.  […]

Rolled The Frame Down Again from Quilts....etc.

Really not a lot left to quilt when you think of how big this quilt is (104″ square) and that I started to quilt it 5 months ago (took one month off) – I am down to the last bits now – this taken on Friday night after I rolled it down.  Tumalo Trails: More […]

Variety from Quilts....etc.

I can’t possibly just work on one project it just doesn’t do it for me.  I have to be hopping from one to the next it seems. Yesterday I worked on a flannel square and reorganized them on my wall – I have six across right now but as they multiple I will probably change […]

Fabric Arrived from Quilts....etc.

Yes I know I bought a lot of supplies while on the road but at that time I wasn’t thinking gray or wide backs – totally forgot about wide backs and totally wasn’t thinking about Round We Go. So this is what I got – I ordered two packages of 10 inch squares – got […]

We had a quite 4th of July yesterday.  Mike had a dental implant procedure done on Tuesday and was on soft foods for 24 hours – and on pain medication – overall did well but we had a quite day with no barbecue. I did get some more quilting done – it was too hot […]

Not much done yesterday on quilting for this or that reason.  I did get one more flannel block done and no thread broke!  And thank you to Dottie (no blog) for letting me know where I could order some bobbins to fit my Red Eye.  I have placed an order – thank you Dottie.  I […]
