Morning Glory from Quilts....etc.

Seeing as I was doing Slow Sunday Stitching yesterday I didn’t work at the sewing machine at all taking a break from the Christmas blocks instead I picked up neglected Morning Glory and worked on needle turn applique while watching a movie which I lost interest in half way through (The Irishman with Robert De […]

More Piecing and Quilting from Quilts....etc.

Y’all will get tired of seeing Christmas blocks soon and I’m sure I will work on other things as well to show.  But I got one more block done for a total of four now and I really like the mixed backgrounds.  I wasn’t too sure on this last one, I was thinking maybe it […]

Another Block from Quilts....etc.

I am really getting into the zone on this block.  It is fun to sit down with the fabric and the layout pattern and start cutting pieces and putting them in the spot I want – stand back and look at it and possibly change out a few pieces and then start to sew.  I’m […]

Don’t you just love seeing the antique machines?  Yesterday my niece who lives in Kuwait teaching school there attended an event and she saw the most beautiful machine and took a photo of it to send to me on messenger.  I had never seen this one and she wasn’t able to get a ID number […]

Hexies and Quilting from Quilts....etc.

My morning yesterday was spent cutting hexies and I almost filled my box back up but there are still plenty of scraps left on the table to use.  I intended to keep working on them most the day today but I must admit I tired of them and didn’t touch them much in the afternoon […]

Scraps–Too Many from Quilts....etc.

Yesterday I said I was going to work on Morning Glory and I did but not until late afternoon.  Earlier in the day I decided to go through two “small” boxes of scraps to continue cleaning things up – it is amazing how many scraps can fit in two boxes – but I can now […]

I tell you Lynn from Sew n’ Wild Oak makes a really good pattern –  what a neat quilt Country Charmer is  -great cutting instructions, the block layout guide, instructions on construction,  pressing instructions – this will make this RSC quilt so much easier to make 53 pieces in an 8.5 inch block and it […]

I have been asked about the quilt Alaska several times for those of you who want to see the whole pattern —  the pattern is by Edyta Sitar – where did I buy it?   I got it on a Black Friday sale (for about half price) from The Fat Quarter Shop (link on sidebar) – […]

Alaska and Hand Quilting from Quilts....etc.

Block #3 of Alaska really went well and points met up pretty well in the center I must say after Block #1 I got pretty set in this quilt and found the easiest ways for me to assemble these blocks – I am pressing after almost every seam and that is helping me.  These four […]

It is getting there.  Today I need to go to Hobby Lobby to look for some more flat plastic storage boxes for projects in process – you know those plastic 14 x 14 boxes that you can lay a 12 inch block in pretty flat.  I want to compare prices to one that I found […]

Just a Little Bit from Quilts....etc.

Trying to go through records of my blog to see what I accomplished this year is taking more time then I thought it would – I usually like to see an end of the year tally to see what I did but I’m not done with it yet.  Maybe I will work on it more […]

A Little Quilting from Quilts....etc.

Drawing cross hatch marks takes a little time but is usually worth it in the end.  I know not all mark their tops after they get them on the frame but that is how I have always done it and it works for me.  Now if it was to be a show quilt I would […]
