Working from Home

Hello Everyone,

I know I haven’t posted since April…  It’s kind of funny when you’re working from home, you seem to work more than when you’re working in the office.  I really haven’t been doing much quilting. I've been working outside in the yard, weeding & mulching.  My husband made a pond with a waterfall, which is beautiful…  Here are some pictures.

OK, back to quilting...  I am still working on my log cabin quilt, and now I have a wedding quilt to start…  Which I think is good...  I need a deadline to get me motivated again.

I still need to add two more borders on this then the top will be done.

Below is the material I think I am going to using on the wedding quilt...

I will share when done!

Another week of Isolation

Hello Everyone,

Please stay healthy!  Stay in, be safe!
Who would have ever imagined we would be in a pandemic, crazy times for sure... I am blessed I have my hobby to keep me busy, it's my therapy...

I made some masks for family and friends to wear when going out to the store or in public...
I am making a couple of i-spy quilts for the grand kids...
Here is one, that's all done below...
The colors are nice and bright.
The back is little monsters -
I haven't made any clothes since high school...
But when I saw this little jumper dress pattern... I knew I had to make it.
This is the pattern cut out
 Here is the dress all done - So cute
I am going to make a couple more.
I am also working on a Log Cabin Quilt
Here is the fabric all cut out...
Here is the block all sewn together

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are all safe & well... This is my 2nd week of staying at home routine. I am grateful to have my sewing to keep me busy, it's a good distraction from what's going on in the world.  I do miss seeing my extended family and friends. I pray that this will all end soon and we can get back to some kind of normalness.

Here is an update on a couple of quilts I have been working on...
The orange and teal quilt is all quilted. I am sewing the binding on the back, and I hand bind all my quilts.  - Here it is...
This is the back - love the colors, matches the front perfectly

Below is an update on the forest friends - I have it on the long arm ready to be quilted.  I will finish this one this weekend :-)
I am not sure what quilt pattern I will use on this one yet...  But I can't wait to get started...  

I don't know if you remember, but back in 2015 I created a memory sweater pillow for a dear friend of mine.  I added pictures and a label.  I am updating this for her now that I have a better embroidery machine..
Here is the new label below...  I need to cut some threads and finish it off
then I will sew it to the sweater pillow below... 

Stay healthy & safe!

Hello Everyone,

I know, I have been neglecting my blog... I just haven't had the time to post any updates.  although, I have been a little busy...

Here are a few things I have done.. Bib towels, embroidered a couple of jean jackets and working on a few quilts...
This is Zig the Flying Ace ...
Can't wait to make this for my little guy 
Below I am making a forest friends quillow
What is a quillow - it's a quilt that folds into a pillow.
I will show pictures when done.
And here I am making a Jelly Roll quilt
I love the orange and teal in this
it really makes the quilt pop.
I will post an update on all these when
they are completed.

Hello Friends,

Well I finally finished the wedding quilt I was working on...  it felt like I was working on it forever... Don't know why, but some seem to take way too long.

Here it is all done. :-) YAY 
 Above are pictures of bride & groom 
along with the invitation I put on the front
of the quilt - very nice keepsake!
Here is the label on the back side. 

I am very happy with the way this turned out!

Hello Quilters & Friends,

The summer is flying by and Shop Hop is just around the corner…  You know where us quilt girls will be... 
😊 Shh, don’t tell our husbands, they say we don’t need any more fabric or quilt notions. But we all know that’s not true. We can always use more!!!

Here are a couple of quilts that I am working on...
This one is for a friend....  Not done yet.
Another Frozen quilt.  I made one for a friend and someone saw it and “Loved it” -  asked if I would make one for her too. (Not done yet)
I also made this cute little baby girl quilt for another friend of mine, her son just had a little girl.  This quilt is made with flannel, it's so soft & snuggly. 
It's so adorable...  I'm thinking I might 
make another one.  😊
