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!

Mid Week Finish!

First, I apologize for my leading title on my last post.  I know you all thought I was announcing a grandchild but...

I started this quilt a year or so ago.  I don't remember the pattern, but the fabric is "Everlasting".  I tried using a double layer of Hobbs batting but kept breaking needles.  I had the rep come down in March to make some adjustments to my machine but I just got around to finishing the binding today.

Until next time, happy sewing!

Another Baby Quilt--What Does That Mean????

Wellllll, I would like to be a grandma, but I also love the fabrics that I have been using!  Ha Ha!  This fabric is "White Washed Cottage"(Honeysweet"?) , no I don't think so but it is from Moda, and the pattern is from the MQC tutorials.

About a month ago, I spent several hours cleaning, sorting my fabric,  I can't find my Mary Engelbreit nor  a couple of other collections.  I typically run my mental video as to where I last saw some fabric, and then look for it.  Now those videos are ALL MIXED UP and I can't find a thing!!

I have three different quilts cut out, so will be working on those this coming week.  AND, I got my first hole in one Thursday during league play!!

Hushabye Quilted!

I spent Saturday in the dungeon trying to catch up on some of my quilting.  I finished "Hushabye", including the binding.

Pieced Backing
There are two more quilted finishes but I am waiting for fabric for the binding!

A friend asked me to make an adult bib.  I made two samples for her to take to a client for feedback.  It has a pocket across the bottom to hold your napkin or catch food.

And finally, I made a mini lone star.  It is not perfect, but pretty good for a first attempt!  I used "More Hearty Good Wishes"

Have a good Wednesday, and see you on the golf course tomorrow!

I was up at the crack of dawn today because we had a 7:30 am tee time.  It was a little nippy but five of us toughed it out for 18 holes and had a good time.

I ran to the fabric store for a jelly roll, with a 40% off coupon and only bought two other yards of fabric--GOOD GIRL!!

Sew, I have finished up my "Hushabye" baby quilt.  It is sew cute!  I will show more pics after it is quilted.

Until next time...

Thomas The Train is Rumbling Down the Track!

I finished sewing the binding on Thomas the Train this morning and he is ready to go to his new owner on Wednesday.  It is sew cute, and I made a pillowcase to match!  The pattern is called "The Big Easy".

The second quilt is a flimsy that I also finished this morning.  The fabric is from Art Galley Fabrics and is called "Indian Summer".  I have had the fabric for awhile but saw this quilt on Pinterest and decided that it would work with this fabric.  I love it!

 I am working on another quilt using fabric from Tula Pink called "Hushabye".  It is a couple of years old but again, I finally found a pattern that would work for the fabric.  Pictures later!

I have had a roast in the crock pot all day and it is time to peel the potatoes.  Until next time...
