Bee-utiful quilt from Susan P Blog

I just dropped the Bee-utiful quilt off to be quilted and felt a bit lost when I left the Busy Bee quilt shop. This quilt was designed by Pamela from Sweet Little Stitches. It is truly bee-utiful

Now the waiting starts, I should have my precious quilt back in 4 – 5 weeks, and then I’ll add the binding

Cannot wait!

Gold Rush 2016 from Jo's Country Junction

image_pdfimage_print

We were up and and out the door early on Saturday morning.  We were headed to Gold Rush.  It’s a big antique and flea market in Rochester, MN at the fair grounds and there’s a LOT-LOT more just north of Rochester in Oronocco.  We’ve loved going in the past years but with the rain and me being on scooter we frankly didn’t know how it would go.

One of my childcare families offered to borrow us a motorized wheel chair.  We thought we use it but with the rain, we ended up not.  We didn’t ...

Glorious Hexagons: The 21st Decade from Hexy Lady

Here are Glorious Hexagons 201 through 210.

#9 Doris

I like the little smudge of light blue that adds a bit of an organic feel to an otherwise hard edged geometric block.

#9 Doris

This is the kind of low contrast block that will fade into the background and allow other blocks to shine in the finished quilt.

#9 Doris

I like the blue star in the center

This one almost looks as if it doesn’t have seams.

Mystery Mail from On The Go Quilting

I have mystery mail!  Yes it really is a mystery.   I received something I really wanted BUT I don’t know who sent it to me!   I mean, I do know WHO sent it to me, but I don’t KNOW who sent it to me.   Get it?   I’ll explain.  There’s a return address on the envelope but I don’t know anyone with that name and I don’t know anyone who lives in Toronto, Ontario!    Oh, I almost forgot to show you what was in the mail!

Baby blanket completed! from Susan P Blog

Last year I went through a stage where I cross-stitched baby blankets, using stitch-able afghan cloth. I cross-stitched three, but only finished the last one this past week when I added the backing and binding. I am sure this is the type of needlework I want to do again

Third baby blanket all done!

This year the craze is quilting, wonder what it will be next year</p>

Log Cabin, Pinwheels, and William Morris Quilts from Sew Grateful Quilts

First two quilts are customer quilts. Sharon’s cute pinwheel baby quilt is quilted with Bubbles pantograph.


Isn’t it adorable.

Next is Suzanne’s log cabin. Just beautiful. Quilted with Shell Shock pantograph.


Last is a group quilt by my Standup Stitchers group. It’s a thank you to Buck Smitheson for his support of the Guild and our Standup Stitchers group. First Bonnie stabilized by stitching in the ditch.  I quilted the center with my usual design around applique and then echoed and feathered around the applique border. Then it goes to the next person for quilting.


Thanks ...

Vacation..our way. from Jo's Country Junction

image_pdfimage_print

Hubby took time off work.  Can you believe it?  That never happens around here.

We started thinking about going on vacation last year at Christmas time.  Normally, we don’t go anywhere away for more than on day.  Hubby was game and even excited about it.  We were celebrating our 30th anniversary this year and he thought now was as good of a time as any.  We started talking about Mount Rushmore, Washington D.C. and other places….then came my 50th birthday in December and plans to do anything quickly faded away.

Medically for me it’s been an ...

Friday Finds, August 26 from On The Go Quilting

Let’s hope this Friday Finds goes better than last week’s.   There was no damage done to that post last Friday.  The server we use shut the site down to PROTECT it from suspicious activity they had noted.   I hope my readers will feel safe to come back and follow my blog again.

Before we get started with fabulous tutorials I have located for you, I want to mention a BOM I’m following. HERE is one that started a week ago.   One is a Harry Potter Lego BOM.

Sinus infection and quilting from Susan P Blog

I am, once again, sick! It feels as if someone sneezes next to me and I am the one catching the bug immediately. As if my body is part of the olympic team and not missing a bug ball

This time a sinus-infection. I have been blaming my headaches on the stress at work, but on Monday my whole head was hurting – face, eyes, top of my head, my brain…..everything. Saw the doctor and he gave me a cocktail of pills; from antibiotics to steroids to painkillers and histamine. I came home with the whole pharmacy. A day later ...

The Aftermath from Jo's Country Junction

What a difference 24 hours make!!

Wednesday morning I woke to a river that was just barely sneaking out of it’s banks.  By Wednesday evening it was this…

flood-3

Now this morning the river was back in it’s banks.  It’s almost like I dreamed it all.

Sadly it left this behind.flood-6

flood-7

flood-8
Lots of raking, cleaning and fixing….We drove the roads in the area.  Bridges are out.  Roads are damaged.

We did hear from one of the families that we know that had a house in the flooded area and she said that there was water in her ...

Frogs, Frogs and More Frogs from HummingBird Quilter

On a quest  for a present for my great-granddaughter’s second birthday, I thought of the frogs that my mother-in-law made for all the grandchildren and great-grandchildren (more than 40 in all) over the years.  I was hoping that she still had the pattern.

 

Not only did she have the pattern but she had one cut out and waiting to be sewn.  It took less than two hours to complete the frog – This makes the frog a gift from great grandma and great-great grandma – and so the tradition continues!IMG_1231

 

I was curious to see if the pattern was still available ...

Hi Everyone! A big welcome to all the new readers!

 

Wrinkles? What Wrinkles?  Or A Humorous Tale of Multiplying Mistakes

This week’s post is a bit late, so we can bring you the continuing saga of the Landscape Quiltalong.  In this week’s episode, we find our little quilter hard at work in her studio.  She has finally got the dang thing off the wall, and has made a large quilt sandwich.

First, she has ironed a full sheet of white Misty Fuse onto the back of the quilt ...

Glorious Hexagons: The 20th Decade from Hexy Lady

Here are hexagons 191 through 200.

#48 Jeannie

I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the contrast between the lighter sections of rust in the center of the star and the darker sections of rust fabric that make up the points of the star. I think I might have been happier if they matched more closely, but the contest is growing on me.

I like the way the horse heads grow from the points of the star.

All is Well from On The Go Quilting

Spammers attempted to hack my site last week while I was away and the server shut it down until my admin person (dear SIL) could change passwords and check to make sure all was well.   I didn’t realize it was down so long since I was away for the week and away from the computer.   However, when I did check it and saw that it was down, I called my SIL and he (who was also away last weekend) went right to work checking to make sure it was secure again.

Whew!   Nothing seems to be gone and we ...
