What’s on the machine 2/29

Shame on me. I’m falling behind on keeping up here. I can only show what’s on Viqtoria. (Millie has Sharon’s mystery lock in quilt for this year, so no peeking on it.)


Here’s what I took off earlier. It’s for a 13 year old.


It has like a minky on the back. Soft!!


That’s what I’m working on. What about you? Anything fun?

Have a good day!


My students work

My friend Barb was one of my students last week. I stopped by her house today so she could show me what she did after class.

When she got home after class, she had 2 small wall hangings that were ready to be quilted, so she decided to quilt feathers on them.

This one has a continuous feather going through the background, crossing the quilt diagonally.


On this one she freehanded the feathered wreath, filling the square, and then running a continuous feather across the quilt through the triangle blocks.



I think she did a great job!!

Now back to work for me.
Have a great day!


Feather class

Today was the first day for my feather class. I’ve had numerous quilters ask me about teaching a feather class, so I figured I could try. We had a 4 hour hands on class. I think everyone was pleased with all the knowledge they got from class. I was a bit nervous that I wouldn’t have enough for them to do for 4 hours, but wow the time flew by fast. They all seemed pleased with all the knowledge they learned. I think I’ll have to schedule more classes. 🙂
My first students.


Now I need to get back to my quilting.
Have a great day!


Wholecloth quilt

Here’s what I did today. If you’ve read some of my previous posts, you know that I absolutely LOVE quilting feathers.
So today I quilted feathers! 🙂


You may not think it’s all that cool, but I do…… I wasn’t sure how it was going to come out when I started quilting it. I think it took about an hour or so to quilt the whole thing. I did McTavishing behind the feathered hearts. Once again, I didn’t know how it would come out. I knew I didn’t want to rip any of the stitches out once I did them. I freehanded all of it. So I got what I got. As for the size of it…………….

Here it is……….


That’s it for now! Have a great day!


What’s on the machines? 2/8/12

I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday. Time goes fast!! Anyway, here’s what I’m working on today.

Viqtoria is working away on this one.

I like using this circular design on quilts with lots of squares.

Meanwhile, over on Millie, I have a cute quilt with lots of appliqué.

Quilts like this always take me foreevvveeerrr, because I debate on what to do with each section. Ugh!
Ok, that’s it, back to work here…….

Have a good one!


2nd UFO done

Yea!! I finished the binding on this one. My hope is to get at least one UFO done each month. So far I’m 2 for 2 this year!!
I bought this quilt top off of eBay several years ago. I finally just put it on the machine and did a panto on it. It’s one of those carry around in the car quilts. 🙂 nothing fancy but great in an emergency!! I’m glad it’s done!! Now I have to decide next months UFO……



Design wall Monday 2/6/12

I actually have the same quilt on the wall that’s been on there for awhile. I haven’t had time to get the sashings pieced. I’ve been sewing units for the mystery quilt. I have a lot to sew since I’m doing the king size one. I have to have it done by the 10th of March. Here’s the pieces that make up the blocks. I can’t remember how many hundreds there are on some of them…


That’s it for today. I better get back to work. To see what others have on their walls go to http://www.patchworktimes.com
