Blue Cobblestones and Sea Creatures from Romany Quilting

My sewing machine came back from it’s service so I’ve done some RSC stitching this week, just taking my time over several days.  My cobblestone strips of blue and cream were cut one day, assembled over the next day or two.  Nice easy blocks to put together, and they always look so good, I think.  I don't have all the colours of the rainbow in my big bag of batiks, so I'm just using what colours I have.

Blue and cream cobblestone blocks

You may remember that I’ve also been stitching simple little boat blocks ...

One more group of blocks............ from Exuberant Color


 This group of Economy blocks are intended to make a baby quilt.  I had auditioned a narrower sashing strip than I used on the other quilt and using the black and white Sharks Teeth print.  There is black and white in 5 of the blocks.  I don't think this one will have a border.

I spent a lot of the day yesterday packaging items sold in my pop-up shop so I didn't make it to the sewing machine.  I have mailed 6 packages so far and hope to mail a big bunch today.

If you want to visit ...

Community Quilts from Ray from Jo's Country Junction

Ray had been busy not only longarming but sewing too!!  Read along and check out the three great quilts Ray finished.

Ray writes:
Between all the long arming of quilts, I managed to actually make a quilt.

I was doing some shopping at a discount store and came across the fabric aisle. They had 20 count jelly rolls for less than $7 each and I could not resist buying two of them. I decided to sew two strips together and then cut them into 4-inch blocks. I grouped four blocks with the same fabric in them to make 8-inch blocks ...

Linear Blocks—Line into Shape Workshop and MORE from Tales of a Stitcher

I hope everyone is having a great summer. I have been enjoying getting outside as much as I can. Alaskan summers are always short and often cool and rainy. Every day of sunshine is a gift.

But I doubt that is why you are reading this. I think, I hope, you might just want to sign up for one of my Virtual Indie Quilt Workshops.

While you check your calendars, know that every session is recorded and available for you to view for approximately 30 days after the last session.

Concert At The Park from Quilting My Way

This morning I was off to moms. I picked up a coffee for Nancy. Picked her up and took her to moms. It worked out great, because I could leave on time and not have mom say, "Hold on....." "Can you help me a sec...."  I pulled out my block that I haven't worked on for at least 4 years.  

I wanted to get started on the background. This is one of the leaves. 

I put one of the "buds" on this piece. I decided I'm going to sew this on and then add the other three. It ...

August Approaches from Bayou Quilts

I'm so proud of granddaughter Mila!  She will be working as a creative operator at Meow Wolf Denver.  I have no idea what a creative operator is, but she will start training soon, and I will find out more.  

Incoming Mail

I was so glad to get this postcard today (7.30.21)!  I'd been wondering what happened to  Annie (Scribbling Glue) and it turns out her last letter went astray and I never received it.  Her postcard was checking in, just as I was wondering why I haven't heard from her in so long.

I love ...

The Real Work Begins! from Just Ramblin'

 Top is pieced, running reindeer traced and waiting to be embroidered.

Because the embroidery floss I will be using is in darker shades, I traced this with my red pen.  Not sure if I like it, but am hoping it will be easy to follow.


"Running Reindeer" pattern is from Lynette Anderson.
If I'm lucky, may just get it finished to enjoy for Christmas.  Think this is going to take me some time to stitch!

Mostly Quilted from Gene Black an Alabama Artist

The table topper is mostly quilted.  The outside border still needs to be done.  I am undecided as to what quilting design to use in it.  Or, maybe I want to do more than one design in it.  Until that decision is made, this quilt is in limbo.  Ha ha. 


Here is a photo of it on my cutting mat, and hanging off the edge. 

I thought you might want a straight on look at the center panel.  So I took another photo of it. 

The red "bumps" that were fused on, were quilted down first with red thread around ...
