Design wall Monday 4/14/14 blue scraps

Since devoting 10 minutes a day to my blue blocks, I have completed 3 more of them. I still have a long way to go but at least my design wall changed since last week! Woo Hoo! I now have 13 of 32 done.

10 minutes a day-4/10/14

My design wall has had the same blocks on it for several weeks now. During that time I’ve completed several other quilts, but those poor scrappy little blue blocks are getting neglected. So I am hereby going to dedicate 10 minutes each day to sew on the blue blocks.
As of today I have 10 blocks sewn and I need 32.
My goal is to have the top done by July. Hmmm….better go do my 10 minutes for today…..luckily I have a few 9 patches sewn already, maybe I can finish a block in my 10 minute time frame!! :)



Stripping again

I’m determined to lower the amount of my stash and I think I’m doing a fairly good job of it so far! Yea!
Last night I pulled out 44 black and white FQ’s and cut them into strips. They are now ready to sew together.


I laid them out from dark to light.


As soon as I get these sewn together I already have plans for the next quilt, using my stash!

Time to strip!! LOL!!

Design wall\scraps

I’m running behind on the Monday wall, but since it’s the same today as it was yesterday, I guess it’s ok! LOL!
I have a few more blocks made since the last time I posted.


I’ve actually made 3 other quilts since my last post too.
These are both done except for the bindings.


I quilted this one yesterday and have to get the binding on it this week, as I need it finished for the Heartland meeting on Saturday. I will show it and offer it as a workshop. I have the bigger size top done, but I think the smaller size is better for a workshop.

That’s it for now. Back to work for me!


Design wall Monday 3/10 blue scraps

After our long day Saturday, and the fact that we lost an hour of sleep because of daylight savings time, I was pretty well tuckered out yesterday. I hate to let a day go by without sewing or quilting something, so I decided to sew a bit more on the scrappy blue quilt I’m working on. I’m cutting strips of blue fabric from my scraps and making them into blocks. Here’s what I finished last night and have on my design wall today.


I have lots of pieces cut into sections.


And several more strips cut.


This will be another one of those projects that will take me awhile to complete. I guess a little bit here and a little bit there will eventually get me to the completed quilt top! LOL!

2014 Mystery quilt “lock in”

What a fun day we all had yesterday! It was our annual mystery quilt day. We had over 50 ladies sewing, eating and visiting!
Here’s a few of them.




We named this years pattern Double D’Lite. Here’s mine.


Here’s Sharon’s.


Those making the throw size quilt got a lot done on theirs.



Some of the ladies with a block. It’s fun to see all the different colors they choose.






There’s a sneak peek at some of what happened yesterday. I’m already looking forward to next years!! :)

Have a great day!

Design wall Monday 3/2/14 circles

Since I didn’t have to drive the school bus today because of the frigid cold temps, I decided to start my Monday off by getting the rest of the rows sewn together on this quilt. All that’s left to do is add a border. I’m  going to add a solid black border and call it done. Probably won’t get to that this week because of the Lock in being next Saturday. I have my quilt quilted and binding attached, just need to get it sewn down and it will be ready to go! I still have lots to do before Sat.

Anyway, for the last time, here’s the circle quilt on my wall. It looks different with the black sashing strips.
