    WIP - 7/12/16 - It may be a scrappy week

    Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing well. RockinLou - so very sorry to hear about your husband. My sincere wish for his recovery and the necessary life style changes.

    Yesterday and today, I have been working on a scrappy quilt. A really scrappy quilt - as all the material is scraps from other projects. Not sure that all the colors are compatible. But my hope is that with good block placement, it will work. Today I finished 176- 4.5" half square triangles and I began 112 - 2.5" half square triangles. I think I'll get those done tonight, and then I can start putting blocks together. (Just what I need - another quilt top!!!)

    What are YOU doing? Please share with us.

    Hi Sylvia, I have finished a couple baby quilts for gifts the last few weeks...
    I have a charm square baby girl quilt to hand stitch the binding on this evening...it will probably go into my box for the PICU group...I also have been making sets of potholders to take to a friend that sells them at the farmers markets in our area...

      Still juggling between falling charms quilt for Mom and "In the middle" quilt for DS. Can't wait to get them finished to be able to post a pic. Happy quilting everyone.

        Altering really expensive formal evening gowns for two weddings. Talk about nerve-wracking. I really need to say no next time someone asks me to do this for them. One false move on my part and I could ruin these dresses. Stress level is high.

        Continuing to sand some on the hutch I am refinishing. Tedious work but it will be worth it once that cupboard is in place in our living room. I'm anxious to get back to quilting. I'm going to start with a new wall hanging for our family room.

          I finally got all of the blocks sewn together for my Goodnight Irene quilt. Boy am I tired of snowballing. Tomorrow I will finish squaring everything and then get the blocks sewn together so this quilt is out of my hair. Christmas present #1.

            Finished Mom's Christmas quilt yesterday. I think I'lll work on an easy donation quilt today--a bit of mindless sewing sounds good!

              I've been practicing some embroidery stitches before adding it to my current project. It's been a very long time.......

                starting to add sashing to some Orphans... Just what I need today is some straight sewing without having to figure out corners or matching seams. Maybe later I can hand sew the binding on another quilt as I watch a little tv.

                  I am working on a scrap quilt too, something for me!! I have the top all done and am into the big stitch quilting on it. I can't tell you how much fun it has been making this! The fabrics are completely random, print on print on print--that is, hardly any solids. There's civil war repro, 1930's, modern, stripes, checks, calico, polka dots, you name it and in all diffetent colors. I know it sounds really ugly and awful but it is actually pretty cool. I had so many charm packs and decided what am I saving these up for? It felt great using up so much of my stash.

I have made 100 HST units (4.5) and 305 patch units (4.5) and now assembling blocks. 15 blocks made 55 to go In between stitching, I began "coaching" students working to achieve their school principal credentials...exciting!

                        Good morning! Guess what I'm doing?? I am sitting on my patio drinking a cup of coffee and finally checking in!!!

                        I still haven't touched my niece's quilt top since I last posted, but I have finished up a pile of odds and ends with various clothing items I had started before my husband was sick that are now completed.

                        I realize that I have a mountain of very lovely knits and my serger here, so it is silly to not take advantage of that! So, I am trying to make those clothes up before we go back to KAZ. If I get to the quilts, great. If not, they can come with me!

                        I have a friend who is a pattern designer who just released a new pattern, my daughter wants a maxi dress version with all the frills and Ruffles attached, which is quite a change from her more recent choices but that is what is next at bat.

                        Would you all even want to see clothing photos??

                              It took me four attempts but I finally got the last block of the Asteria quilt done. I just need to assemble the blocks and add the two outer borders. I am loving this recolored version. It is very me.
