10 Days Later

Ha, it has only been 10 days since I last posted.  In those 10 days, I got beat in a match play golf tournament, got my canopy picked up and blown away (with weights and quilts hanging on) while at 3 Eyed Fish Farmers Market Sunday and have been catching up on my quilting (including 2 of my sisters!)

This morning, for the second time, I fasted and headed to the lab for a blood draw, only to find that my name was not in the system.  I walked down the hall to my practioner's office and the orders that she had written for me were different than she had written in her files.  Sew, after a quick stop at the store, I stopped and had breakfast with Ronald McDonald!

I sewed the binding on a finished quilt and then made three zippered project bags.  I used a pattern from

Bear Claw Mini

Last night I went to my guild meeting.  The guest lecturer was "Melinda Bula".  She is not only a very talented quilt artist but is very very funny!

I am off to make some pumpkin bread, love it!!

Wednesday Show and Tell

Good morning!

I found this darling quilt ("Rainbow Migrating Geese") on Pinterest from "Sew, Create, It".  I used Moda's "Lakeside Gatherings" and made a small baby quilt.

Here are a couple more mini quilts (I love these for gifts!):

Another birthday has come and gone and I don't look a day over 50!  60!

Hushabye #2

I finished this quilt a week ago but forgot to take pictures until this morning.  I used an old fat quarter bundle of "Lilly and Will" by  Bunny Hill.

If your dad is still around, give him a big hug!!

Another UFO Finished!

I made this flimsy November 2013 and finally quilted it this past week and got it on our bed June 14, 2015.  It is called "Scrappy Mountain Majesties" and is one of Bonnie Hunter's many many scrappy quilt patterns.

I have to get a roast in the crock pot and then back to my sewing machine to work on another project!

All Bound Up!!

I golfed  early this morning and am very grateful to be finished by 10:30 am.  It is now 99 degrees here in the Tri-Cities!  PHEW!

I ran outside very quickly and took these pictures of a couple of table toppers.  The first one has some Bonnie and Camille fabric, but I can't remember which one!  I found it buried in my stash! The second is a scrappy 4th of July motif.

I forgot to show you this little gem.  I tried to make a "Pineapple" block (yes, I failed before).  I took the picture on the golf course after sewing the binding on and then gave it to one of my playing partners!

Yesterday, I finished quilting a nice scrappy queen size quilt for our bed.  I need to sew the binding on and then, I will show you pictures!!

Update Wednesday

Do you wonder what to title your post?  Not that you necessarily need one but...

I have been drinking Italian Soda's all day and trying to finish up some little projects.  You, of course, know that I always have more than one going at a time.  I think that I have four waiting to have the binding stitched!  Sew, here are three mini's:  The first one is called "Summer Star" and is for Sherri McConnell's new "Minis and More".  I used "More Hearty Good Wishes".  I made this mini before with brighter colors.

First "Summer Star" with "Color Theory"

The second/third mini is from "Scraps of Life" blog spot.  However, I made mine mini and used "More Hearty Good Wishes".  Have you noticed that I love this fabric!!

The last mini is from "Moda Candy, Oh Sew Sweet" and is on page 17.  I used Moda's "Richmond Reds".  I quilted a big one just like it for my sister last year.  Her's was scrappy and she used grey for her background fabric!

I finished sewing my MBS quilt and am waiting on the fabric for the backing.  I think that my cousin Vonda has eyes on it!

Until next time, keeping your sewing machine oiled and your scissors sharp!

New MBS Project

I saw this quilt on the MBS site and fell in love!  It will be much bigger (queen) when I finish but I wanted to share!  I am using Moda's "More Hearty Good Wishes".

UFO Finish!

I dug this UFO out of the cupboard this week end and just finished sewing it together.  It is a simple braid using mostly Kate Spain scraps.  I have ordered some backing and will add it to the pile in the dungeon!

I played golf this morning and we are having dinner with family!  Yeah, no cooking!  Until later...

Monday Report!

I have a couple of projects to show you.  One, is a finish and one is a flimsy.  The first is the "Gray Square Scramble" all quilted.

 The second is a nice table topper made with an old Fig Tree Collection, "Patisserie".  One of the nice things about taking pictures of flimsy is that you can correct a mistake before quilting!!!  I need to change two blocks!

When I got home from golfing this morning, I planted a peonie that I bought Saturday at the farmers market.  I hope the vendor is there next Saturday, sew I can buy another.  Her bouquets were beautiful.

Until later...

New Blog Design

I was a little tired of the boring blog background, sew, I found something a little jazzier!!  The wind blew and the rain fell all of last night and all morning.  That meant that it was sewing time.  Before I show you my new flimsy, I will show you a small table topper that I finished yesterday.  The fabric is Moda's "Martinique".  I am going to have to invest in a design board, the reds are a little too much on one side.

 I was actually planning on spending the morning in the dungeon, but got started on this quilt and stuck with it.  I got the pattern off "The Fat Quarter Shop" site.  It is "Gettysburg" by Sew Emma.  I used Fig Tree's "Mirabelle" and have ordered "More Hearty Good Wishes" to make another one!

Dinner is in the oven, sew I am off to the showers!

"Gray Square Scramble"

It is a beautiful day but since I am not playing golf, I have been sewing!  The quilt is from the "Spring 2014 Easy Quilts".  It was pretty simple but it is very colorful.  And, I love it!

Now, on to finish another project!

PS Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there!
