2021: Week 48 of 15 Minutes to Stitch from High Road Quilter






 

2021:  Week 48 of 15 Minutes to Stitch


 

I spent my week getting ready for the gathering and having the gathering. We had a good time, even though some members of our family was not able to come.

I spent a couple of sessions to put the remainder of the pieces on the Halloween block. I plan to have one or more quilt finishes before the end of the year to offset the many quilts I have started.

Community Quilts: News from Ray from Jo's Country Junction

Ray sent me several emails again.  I put them all together in one post for you.  I am so happy that many of you are working to send your goodies out directly to quilt finishers.  That saves so much of my time and saves a bunch of money on postage.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!

The mail person has been a bit busy with packages from your blog readers. Today I got a box of 10 quilt tops from Marci V. in Idaho. Those tops have a lot of mileage on them and probably more to go before they get to ...

Belated Halloween from Linda's Landscapes

Last post, I promised a Halloween project would be up next. Well now it's Christmas season, but you know what? I finished the larger of the two Halloween projects just yesterday, so I'm going with it anyway! (And now the decks are cleared for something new.)

This first one did get finished in time to hang on the living room wall for Halloween...


I have never loved a Halloween panel as much as I do this one. It's from Wilmington Prints titled, "Frightful Night Haunted House Panel."

Here are some closeups of the free-motion quilting (click on ...

Three Treasures from Heart Desire Creations

The generosity of quilters amazingly continues. An excellent quilter, Dolores, recently brought me three quilts to be donated to Hospice. The patients and their families that receive these will be so fortunate!

Each quilts is a “scrappy” quilt but the patterns chosen make them so special. This first one also has such a pretty backing. It’s a soft and warm fleece and oh so happy!

The varied direction of the pattern below makes this such an interesting quilt. And the backing is a bonus second quilt!

The third scrappy donation is a true labor of generosity – little log cabins ...

Offering Grace and Mercy from Appalachian Quilts

I watched, stunned, as they laid out the evidence markers and started taking their pictures.  My question was "why"?  I was heartbroken and devastated....

Around 11 pm last night we received a phone call from a relative.  He was turning around in our church parking lot and saw a light coming from inside.  As he turned his vehicle a little more his headlights happened upon a startled young man.  He realized it was a flame coming from inside our church.  He jumped out of his vehicle to go after the young man but it was dark and the young man ...

Christmas Gift Giving from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Normally Vince and I haven’t given each other gifts but we were always home alone on Christmas and anything we wanted, we just bought. Well, we didn’t buy EVERYTHING we wanted but if there was something one of us really wanted, chances are . . we would get it when we wanted it. This year...

Quilt Bible Blocks, Snowmen Table Runner, 3 Free Seasonal Patterns, Neddy's Growing! from Canadian Needle Nana

 I tumbled down a rabbit hole this week I can tell you!! On a whim I decided to get out my scrappy Quilt Bible blocks and see what they looked like all together. The floor was the only space free to lay them out.  I'd already made the decision to use a light blue fabric for the sashing as Rosemary had used in her book. I figured she's the expert and actually I think it is working okay. 

 I'd thought of black but didn't have enough on hand and white is over used by me. I ...

Plato de porcelana para queso from La Vida en Patchwork

Os presento mi nueva bandeja o plato de porcelana para queso pintada a mano. Una vajilla personalizada de lo más original, y que no vas a encontrar en ninguna otra mesa. 

Disfruto un montón pintando en porcelana, y me apasiona el resultado, creo que ha quedado de lo más apetecible, en esos colores cálidos y con un borde rústico que me recuerda a los picnic de campo, donde llevamos el quedo en una bonita cesta de paja. La verdad es que esa imagen me inspiró para poner ese borde, que creo que queda de lo más acertado.

F-video

Rhododendron Trail Mystery Part 1 from Knitting Quilter



I decided to join Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt this year. I've done it before but it's been a few years. This year she is inspired by a trail that she walks. The colors were pinks, garnets, yellows and neutrals as well as one fabric for aqua. The clue this week was to make 31 of 4 matching half square triangles using pinks and neutrals. This week didn't take me too long. I'm sure some weeks will be tougher. (Not looking forward to those!)

 

Since I'm only making 4 half square triangles, I opted to ...

Slow Sunday Stitching from Eagle's Wings Quilts

 How did that week go by so fast? I mentioned last Sunday that I had some quilty finishes that I would share later in the week and somehow the week got away from me. I’ll try to do better this week. I want to keep my Sunday posts mostly about hand work. 

I’m making good progress on all my current hand work projects. My socks are almost done. An hour or so today should finish them. I like having a pair always on the go. They are mostly simple mindless knitting, good for late evenings when I don ...

The New Chromebook from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

The Chromebook arrived today. It’s just a rather inexpensive Chromebook but after using them, I’d never go back to a Windows computer. As with so many things, the Chromebook isn’t right for everyone. After having used Windows for so many years, I was unhappy with Vince when he insisted I switch to a Chromebook. It...

Gobble Gobble from South Jersey Quilter

 We had a lovely Thanksgiving!




It included a 
geography lesson, when Heather and Julianna weren't sure where Finland is. I don't remember why the subject of Finland's location came up, but explanations involved two globes and several cell phones. Fun times! The food was wonderful, and the company terrific!


Time to change the qsnap! Or maybe put it back into the big frame. First I have to give the snakes and the neutrals afghan some love.


And I want to give this hat a try!


I made these bar cookies, a recipe from Facebook of course. Six ...
