Not Much Sewing from Quarter-Inch Capers

I really haven't done much involving a sewing machine. I did pull out my keyhole quilt (another UFO from the quarantine period) and started putting the blocks together. The pattern is from a Missouri Star tutorial.

This is what I have so far:



I'm not too sure about the light colors clumped together on the right side, but I'm not sure I will change it. Let me try looking at it from another angle.
That is not any better. I will have to think about it. I also ...

The Usual Friday! from Quilting My Way

Today started out with getting ready for golfing and quilting. No, I don't golf - Patrick does. 

I stopped at the church to drop off a batting and backing to one of the members who made a quilt for our QOV group. It's awesome what she had done for us. 

I worked on my binding of the quilt. I'm happy to say I have one side done and will work on the rest later. Everyone loves the colors and loves the yellow that is the binding. 

I had to leave right after lunch because we had to go ...

From One Thing To Another from Quilting My Way

 This morning was Patrick's golf day. Man was it cold this morning! He said he did pretty good after he warmed up. lol 

While he was gone, I made a couple phone calls. Had to call Judy H. who is a QOV member who works out of Olympia. She knew Bev, so had to let her know. She did find out just before I called. Then Debbie called telling me how her day started out - and got worse as the day went on. 

I then sat down and did my Flosstube on YouTube. I put all my recent projects ...

A Day At Home from Quilting My Way

This morning I was glad knowing I would be home all day. I'm tired of running around, which is what last week was. 

I made a few phone calls. Mom called to say Nancy's Birthday was today, so I called and wished here a Happy Birthday. We talked about QOV. She asked 3 on the list if they could come the day before Thanksgiving. I told her not to call anyone else and I would check with Debbie to see if she had another relative. She didn't, but I do. I called my cousin to see if ...

Three Guesses What Today Was from Quilting My Way

 I seem to be repeating myself lately - just like the days of the week! Today was quilting day at moms. I ended up helping mom out with getting the booster shop appointment she wanted. She tried to get the booster shot at Rite Aid - had the appointment confirmed - and when she went over there, they had her come back 3 times - "in an hour," "in a half hour," and "try again in an hour." They had her in the computer because she got a confirmation - but they didn't have her in Centralia. She gave them her confirmation number, everything ...

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 ...

Kitchen Scraps Challenge and Another UFO Done. from The Cozy Quilter

 Each year, the Elgin Piecemakers Guild issues a challenge to their members.  This past year, we were given a piece of insulbrite thermal batting and asked to make something for our kitchens using scraps.  On Thursday night, we met in person for the first time in ages and revealed our projects.  There were oven mitts, hot pads, a casserole carrier, tea cosies, etc.  Many in the group used selvages in their projects.  I decided to raid my denim stash (from old jeans) for my lasagna pan hot pad.  I have a large orange lasagna pan and always have to use ...

October UFO's and PomPoms! from The Cozy Quilter



I finally made my September block for the Elgin Piecemakers Guild Comfort quilt project this past week! We were each to make a bird block with a gray background.  We had plans to meet outside in September in someone's backyard but it poured rain the night of our meeting and it got cancelled so now, the bird blocks will be handed in with the October blocks this month.  I had already made all of my blocks for the rest of the year in the spring so this was the last one to make for 2021.  I used a Riley ...

UFO's from Quarter-Inch Capers

I found a UFO I think I sort of forgot about, and I laid it out on the bed to see what it needed. 

The blocks are from a swap I did during the quarantine last year, and I got as far as putting them together. I really got stalled on the border though. I found some red fabric I had folded up with it, and I don't know if it shows in the picture or not, but the two reds don't quite match. 
They are really close, but in good light, even the textures look a little ...

Reaction To The Flu Shot from Quilting My Way

 Yesterday I had a reaction to the flu shot, so I was under the weather all day long. I slept most of the day. My niece showed up and dropped of the 2 quilt tops for my brothers. I need to add their information in the bottom square. I'm thinking I will embroidery there name and date of service on it. After she left I headed back to bead. 

Patrick didn't have the reaction I did. Actually he went golfing today. Me, I stayed home and worked on recovering. I thought I was going great till......

I went ...

UFO Challenge from Quarter-Inch Capers

 I don’t know how I missed the announcement for the American Patchwork and Quilting UFO for October, but I did. I finally thought to open Facebook and look for it. 

Well, that’s going to be a job. My number 8 is a bunch of batik pinwheel blocks I received in a swap that went for several months. 
The main problem is that about the half the blocks I received were not well made or were just made incorrectly (pinwheel spinning the wrong direction so you lose the secondary pattern). My thought was to remake the ones I wasn ...

Charm Pack Quilt Top Done and some Knitting Progress from The Cozy Quilter

 It's been a busy week here--we are having our three bedrooms painted this coming week and then new carpeting will be installed in mid October.  This means that everything must be moved out of all of the bedrooms and closets.  This has resulted in lots of purging and trips to the thrift store to donate items we no longer need. Lots of work, but all of our efforts will pay off in the end.  I did take a few sewing breaks this week and managed to finish off the charm square quilt top.  I made this quilt by the ...

My Friday Meeting Day from Quilting My Way

 I packed up the quilt tops, thread, quilt, project and veggies to go to moms. My first stop was to Connie to drop off the quilt tops to be quilted for QOV. Then it was off to moms. I showed the quilt to the gals. This was the quilt that Sandy gave me to see if we could use it for a QOV quilt. It is also a Queen size quilt. After a lot of chattering, they decided it would not work. It's too big, and the theme (even though red, white and blue), didn't go with patriotic ...

Quilting Day from Quilting My Way

 As always, today was Friday and quilting day at moms. We had a new member show up today. I knew her from our quilt guild. We've known each other for about 15 years. 

There were 6 of us today. I worked on my block that needs to be finished. It will help to get this quilt all together. 


The photo is brighter than it really is. But it does show what I'm doing. I have the bottom part of the petals done. I have the upper part put on top of the petal. I have the one on ...

Group Meeting from Quilting My Way

This morning was our group meeting day. I took the block that I was trying to get done. 


 I was able to get 3 of 5 petals done. I added the 4th pedal. I will finish that one up and then start working on the next layer. I do like the back basting when doing that. When I have that many layers, I do better with back basting. If one can see it, one would notice my applique work is a lot better than turning the edges down before appliqueing. I tend to do better when I turn the work ...

Setting Up For Another Project from Quilting My Way

Today was a slow day. I took awhile to get moving. 

Once I did, I pulled out the light box and started marking the back of my block. I decided to do the back basting for the flower as well as change the color. 


 This is the original color I was going for - NOT bright enough. 

This is the color I'm going for now. I will put those on and then put the others on. There is a lot of step on this one. 

Once that was done, I went to get my beading started. YEP - another beading project ...

A Movie And A Finish! from Quilting My Way

This morning I was working on the blocks that I was looking at yesterday. I need to figure out what I want to do about my block. 


 I wanted bright. So, I decided to use these colors instead of what I was doing. I took out my work and threw it away. Then I tried to figure out what I wanted. After talking with Patrick, we came up with this. He isn't that crazy about my bright quilt, but think once it's done he will like it. 

Next it was time to go to the movie. We saw ...

Applique And A Show At Moms from Quilting My Way

 This morning mom wasn't having her meeting day because she wasn't feeling well. So, I went over to be with her, since Friday's are our days. 

I showed her all the blocks I have from "My Garden Quilt." I had a hot pink solid to use for the sashing. It didn't go with all the blocks. 

I was working on this piece and realized I did it WRONG! I was putting the loopy pieces on last. I needed to put them on first. So, I'm thinking I will take it out and redo it. I ...

Better Photo Of My Finish! from Quilting My Way

This morning I wanted to do some cleaning up. So, I got laundry going and done. Then I had Patrick help me with a photo of the Snowman. 


 Patrick offered to show it off for me. lol It's done and Patrick put the rod through it. Looks great. 

Then I worked on a Lemon Meringue Pie for dessert. It turned out awesome! And grandma Wineland would be proud!

It was awesome too. Grandma W was the pie maker in the family. If someone said they were bringing a pie, she would bake one to show hers was better. 

After ...

Fast-Forward Once Again! from From the Strawberry Patch...

Here's the second sampler quilt top from the bin of old blocks-of-the-month; this one, also, from 2007! As explained in the previous post, I had stashed the blocks along with fabric purchased at the time for finishing; I'm SEW glad that I did that! The extra green and dark red came in handy for those cornerstones in the pieced sashing. I found this setting idea in Sharyn Craig's Setting Solutions
