Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Two Big Finishes! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Here it is, Friday again!  How the weeks do fly by - can you believe it's already the last day of April?  But Fridays are special, because it means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on - are you ready?  Let's go!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll have seen progress shots of these two quilts, but yesterday saw the completion of both and they were shipped off to their owner!


This first quilt is a puzzle style t-shirt quilt, with memorabilia from both her own past and that of her two ...

Make-A-List Monday - Where Did My Week Go? from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

How did it get to be Monday already?  Last week went by so quickly, and I really don't feel like I got much done at all.  So let's see how last week's list went...

1.  Quilt high school ministry quilts (at least two).
I didn't get to this one, as I realized I had a rapidly approaching deadline on the golf memory quilt...

2.  Work on the third set of blocks for the Me Sew Happy quilt.
This one got put to the side, too.

3.  Finish cutting out the blocks for the golf ...

Hi, all!

Wow, this week just flew by, didn't it?  But it's finally Friday, and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  I hope you're ready - let's get started!!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

It felt really good to get back home after vacation and jump right into a project with a looming deadline - and even better to get it finished!


This fun t-shirt quilt documents a local high school senior's band life through high school.  The shirts are arranged in chronological order...


...and her choice for border and binding were her school colors ...

Quilting Off and On from From the Strawberry Patch...

I've been standing at the long arm quite a bit the last few days. I've completed the quilting on this four-block wallhanging and it's OFF the rails. Yesterday I loaded ON the first of the two T-shirt quilts.I chose a large, open meander pattern for the allover quilting design on these. It went quickly and I was very pleased with the results. It came OFF the rails this morning, it's all trimmed up

Life is Good, Times Two! from From the Strawberry Patch...

Many of you have probably made a T-shirt quilt or two. Not me. A friend from church asked me late last fall if I would make a quilt from his wife's T-shirts as a tangible memory of her. We all loved Judy at church; she passed away almost two years ago after an awful battle with ALS. "Sure" I said, immediately without hesitating; he indicated that he had all of the shirts bundled up together and

Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? Baby Steps... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Friday has rolled around once again, and that means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Are you ready?  Then let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

It's been a week filled with finishes, near-finishes, beginnings, and ongoing results.  First, a near-finish...


This t-shirt quilt top is finished and just waiting for the backing to arrive!

And then a finish....


Our new shower door was finally installed!  We've been trying to do this since the end of December, and after a multitude of problems, it's finally done.  Now at least I don't have ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Things are Rolling Along... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Guess what, y'all?  It's Friday again!  And we all know what that means - - - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  So let's get started....

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

This week I ignored the beautiful spring weather we had and holed up in my studio to work one of the t-shirt commission quilts... and it paid off!


The top is finished!  And once again, with Lilli's help laying it out and charting it out on graph paper, it went together like a dream.  It's square, straight, and came together with a minimum of fuss ...

Make-A-List Monday - What A Difference a Week Makes! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

What a difference a week makes!  Last Monday we were iced in, soon to be followed by a mess of snow that kept us inside until Saturday.  It certainly made for a lot of sewing (and jigsaw-puzzling) time!  But today there's just a little bit of ice left in the shady spots, which deserves a huge whoop whoop!  I did enjoy the extra sewing time, and binge-watched my way through about half of the Marvel universe, in order.  I think I've watched the first fourteen movies so far.  FYI, Disney+ has a great feature which places ...

Make-A-List Monday - Iced In! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

What is it about bad weather, I mean the kind that keeps you inside because the roads aren't safe, that makes you really crave a pizza?  I may have to drag out the yeast and make some pizza dough tomorrow and see what I can find to put on one soon!  Thankfully, I have a granddaughter who thinks that pepperoni is a food group, so we always have that on hand, and mozzarella is my friend, so it's always in stock too.  We didn't get the promised snow today, but we did have a whale ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Serious Progress.... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Guess what?  It's Friday again - hard to believe it, but we're almost halfway through February, too!  And because it's Friday, it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on - are you ready?  I am!  Let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

A little over a week ago, I met with a woman who needed a t-shirt quilt made for her daughter.  She had 45 t-shirts, and she wanted as many as possible used in her quilt.  And she needed it all by 2/19!  I had some memory quilts to finish up, and got those finished ...

I May Have A Scrap Problem... Drowning In T-Shirts? from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Well, I spent the day working on a t-shirt quilt and making one. big. pile. of t-shirt scraps.  Now, you know me and fabric scraps - I just can't bear to throw away usable fabric!   And I'm happy to say that I have a great solution for those t-shirt backs that I want to share with you today.  Because to save them without a purpose would be crazy, wouldn't it?  I posted this originally in 2018 but thought it would be a good time to bring it back for a re-run, since it is t-shirt quilt ...

Make-A-List Monday - Crunch Time! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


Hi, all!

Another week has come and gone, and the end of the year is coming up so fast!  Hard to believe that it's already October, isn't it?  And so much is going on in the next few weeks - I really need to get my thoughts together and make a comprehensive to-do list and STICK BY IT!  

But first, let's see what I managed to do on last week's list...

1.  Baste the two commission quilts.
2.  Quilt the two commission quilts.
Done!  Both of these are ready for delivery - hooray!!  No more commission work until ...

Make-A-List Monday - Back In The Real World! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Well, it's been a few weeks since I did a Make-A-List Monday post - but don't think I've been slacking off!  OK, well, I did slack off a little bit during vacation, but I had fun sewing on things I *wanted* to work on rather on things I *needed* to work on.  First up was this Plaidish quilt...


...which I finished while on vacation. That was a fun bit of sewing and I will definitely be making more of these!  Then I worked on the reindeer blocks that eventually ended up in this top...



Isn't ...

Make-A-List Monday - Wishin' and Hopin'... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Monday, Monday... the start of a new week and a new list of tasks!  I had a busy week last week but didn't even look at my list after I wrote it, so I have no idea if I met any of those goals... so let's find out!


1.  Make a plan and write estimates for two new customer quilts.

Done!  The customer liked the idea and the price, so I'm good to go this week.  Here's a pic of what I have planned...



The white areas will be for t-shirts and memory fabrics ...
