Wednesday’s works

It’s a rainy day here in Kansas, but that’s ok because i am in my workroom getting as much done as i can! I’m almost finished with the quilt on this machine. I’m using one of my favorite pantagraph patterns on it.

I finished this custom one and just took it off the other machine.

I love when I can work feathers into them. :)

Meanwhile, over at the sewing machine, I sit down every once in a while and sew a few more strips for a strip quilt.

I have a class coming up at my LQS and need to get the info to them, so they’ll have it when people sign up. I also have a workshop next week that I’m teaching, so I need to make sure I have everything in line for it. And then there is my BIG project that I’m working on, which I haven’t mentioned. But I try to work on it a bit each day too. Somedays there just isn’t enough hours! LOL!!
Hope you’re having a productive day!!

Design wall Monday 9/15/14

Guess I should post something, it’s been too long since I’ve done that. My design wall has stayed the same for weeks. I’ve been too busy with other things going on. I was looking for some fabric the other day and ran across this panel that I bought last summer. In looking at it, I thought, hmm….I wonder if that could be worked in with those blocks over on the wall…….? So I put it up and now I have to come up with a way to make it fit……..

I think the colors work great together. So that’s the plan, as of today! LOL!!

Design wall 7/28/14 Rock house quilt

I finished the basket weave quilt top and the Florida quilt top that I was working on last week. I will try to get them both quilted in the next week or so and show pics of them then. The basket quilt ended up being about 102″ square. Whew! I still have lots of strings left so I need to come up with another quilt that uses strings.
As for my design wall this week, in going through drawers, I came across these blocks that were made for me years ago by members of my guild. They gave them to me as thank you blocks for all the work I was doing for the guild.

The pattern for the quilt was in McCall’s Quilting, February 2003. Luckily that is printed on the block instructions. Hopefully I still have the magazine!! LOL!!
Anyway, I will make this my 10 minute a day project, and make enough blocks to complete a larger quilt. It seems like the pattern called for over 60 blocks, so I know I need to make quite a few more blocks.
So that’s my wall this week, to see more check out http://www.patchworktimes.com

Design wall 7/21/14 basket weave quilt

I had time last night to work on getting some of the rows made on the basket weave quilt. I decided to make the rows and sew them together as I get them made instead of making all the rows and then sewing them together. Here’s what I have so far.

I have almost half of the rows completed. Depending on what size I make the borders, it will end up being approximately 100″ square.

I’m also playing around with a piece if Florida fabric. Not to sure about this…….not exactly coming out like I planned, but we’ll see.

That’s it for what I have on my wall this week. To see other design walls go to http://www.patchworktimes.com

Hopefully tonight I can work more on my rows, for now I have to get back to customer quilts. Have a good day!

Blue scrap quilt

Sharon and I were in Ark City, Kansas last week (Sunday and Monday) for a program and workshop. We had a great time with wonderful ladies! I took my blue scrap quilt along and worked on the binding in the car and
whenever I could find a few minutes here and there. I finally finished it after getting home.

Another quilt made from my stash! Yea! I have several more ready to cut and I came up with a few more ideas today. My stash is dwindling and I am happy!!! I hope I can continue. :) This is fun seeing how much I can use.

That’s it for now.

Time to sew

Woo HOO! I sewed the last of the squares together today and now it’s assembly time!! 181 squares!
They don’t look like much stacked up in a pile.

20140719-211717.jpg
The setting triangles are cut too. I will decide on the borders later. Hopefully I can get some time this week to assemble this. I am glad all those squares are done. :)

More to come later……

Kansas row by row

Had a fun time at my guild meeting last night. Our Kansas row by row exchange was due. We only had 2 groups participate in the exchange and group 1 didn’t show up with their rows so only group 2 got to exchange. I’m glad I was in group 2. Anyway, I went easy and made this row.

These are the rows I exchanged for.

20140711-100100.jpg
I love the rows everyone made!!
Now I’ll have to decide how I want to put them together.

I also got a little surprise gift from my friend Joelyn. She does beautiful embroidery work and she made me a little rug mug. (Although no mug will ever be placed on this!!)

20140711-100600.jpg
Isn’t it beautiful? I LOVE it and she was so kind to make it for me. Thank you again Joelyn!!

Well, that’s it for now. Have a great day!
