This week I have been working on finishing up quilts for the high school graduates at our church, something our quilt ministry has done for the past several years.  This year we need twenty-two quilts, so there's been a lot of quilting and binding going on!


I quilted this stack of quilts and took them to church on ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Beach Quilt! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Friday is here again, and hopefully we all survived April Fool's Day!  I did see a few Instagram posts of people who were surprised by snow - quite a wicked April Fool's joke from God, I must say.  We woke up to a beautiful day, but twenty degrees colder than we had been the rest of the week - and so windy you could hear the wind whistle through the bathroom vents.  So we didn't have a beach day today, but we did play putt putt and watched four - count 'em, four! - Godzilla movies!  A good day ...

We arrived at the beach yesterday (well in advance of the horrible weather currently plaguing the south) to this lovely view!  I'm looking forward to the next few days when it isn't quite so gray and chilly, though.


And while the beach is definitely whoop-worthy, THIS is what I'm really whooping about - the condo had a workstation set up that has been the perfect place to ...

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 ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? The Perfect Valentine's Gift... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Friday has rolled around once more - and for many of us, it's been a week of cold weather, ice and snow.  I hope all of you have fared well, and have had power and heat.  We were fortunate, getting a lot of snow and ice but retaining our utilities, so it's been a week for sewing!  But today I'm not going to share any sewing, because my husband got me such a fabulous Valentine's Day present that I want you all to see.  So let's get our whoop whoop on and 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 ...

Hi, all!

Friday has rolled around once again, and it's been another wild and turbulent week, hasn't it?  I don't know about you, but I've been indulging in "comfort sewing" as a way to cope with everything that's going on.  I hope, if you have, you will join in today's whoop whoop session so we can all boost each other up a little bit. That's important in times like these!  So let's get started...
