Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
All i have done the last couple of days is join these together.
I did sew the other string of blocks together and looked for a fabric in my stash to do a small border.
Haven't found any thing yet.
About any color would do but i am leaning toward black for some reason.
It think black would tie it all together.

Kim's Quilt

 Hi friends!
This is the start of one end of this quilt , i have something for a small border to go all the way around..
Of course i will have to sew it all together to see just how wide the border has to be and i had though about small blocks on each side but its so wide with a border that just might do it.
Need to sew it together so i can plan the next step.

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
The third row!
I may get these together by Wednesday. But i did make the blocks for the next row, on top and bottom.
These are twelve inch each so hopefully these rows will bring me up to a small border.
I want to do a smaller row on the sides of the broken dishes or envelope block.
I plan on making the blocks and putting them together and sandwiching them before adding them to these blocks. On the top,bottom and sides.
Maybe it will be possible to give this to her Thanksgiving.

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
I decided on four across for Kim's quilt.
Added another one for the second row.
But although I have quilted three more blocks I still haven't quilted the fourth one to make the next row. Hopefully today if i have time with all the house work that needs doing.
This morning i decided to add some envelope blocks to the top, bottom and sides to finish it off.
Do you ever do that wake up and know just what you want to do ?
Have a good weekend

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
Joined another row !
But i think i will add another block to each one.
The top one had to go to the couch because of bunching !
I will use my ripper to take it apart.
You can see it on the left block that i added.
Real good her but i took it out last night so should redo it today.
Have a good weekend.

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
Two of our great grands came for trick and treating.
Luke and Katy Jo.
Went yesterday and picked up my battening i ordered. Saved shipping by sending it straight to our local Walmart.
It's Pellon.
The block i had sandwiched is nearly quilted. When i get finished with it i will join three of them and add them to the other three that i have already joined.
Didn't get much done yesterday because Tommy's last aunt died , she was 92.
We went over and spent some time with her two daughter's.
She was my supervisor's supervisor  for 18 years . I got to know her sweet side.
After Tommy and i got married 20 years ago we went to visit her and she was so tickled that He had found me.
Tommy called her a couple of weeks ago and she was having a good day and they had a nice long talk.
At that time we had now idea she was so bad off.
She is happy now with her hubby.

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
I tried this saching for the middles!
This is the fabric I used, it's one yard of thirty's fabric.
I think i like it better than the yellow.
It might have disappeared in the design.
I put together one more yesterday but haven't quilted it yet.
Hoping to speed up working on this so i can start Missy's ! Her birthday is in Feb.

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
I quilted the three blocks that i had sandwiched.
I found some fabric they may work for the sashing between the blocks. Each block measures 18 by 22. Nice big blocks.
Maybe this one:
I have another that i want to see if it will look better before i make up my mind.
Some thirty's fabric that i bough  a yard of. I will let you know !

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
Have you ever woke up at 3 A m and though , i hate that quilt!
Well i did and i have racked my brain trying to come up with a way to join this quilt the way it will look old and I  will be happy with it.
So Sat. I took some of the blocks and decided to GAUG them.
I put three of them together  with backing and battening and now i need to get some more battening to finish some more off.  I had though a pale yellow for sashing but i may use white, what ever  i use it needs a very light color. Maybe even a soft blue.
But I will let you know what i come up with.

Tatum's Quilt

Hi friends!
This thing drags for some reason!
Had more trouble with it than all the others combined.
My stack of micro-wave cosy's and i have one more cut!
Cut these for Tatum's quilt yesterday to.
I took a scrap of rose fabric to Walmart but couldn't find anything in the quilting section to match.
I guess i will have to look on-line!
I wanted to get started on it and that would hold me up so i may just use the solid rose for it all

Tatum's Quilt

Hi friends!
Started cutting on Tatum's "Sooner" quilt.
This is their colors! Rose and cream!
I pulled these fabric's to see if they would be "rose" enough. I think they will work fine.
I am planning on using this pattern but loosely! Going to make a long Twin for her dorm room.

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
The top row is not sewed together! But i have them almost finished.
I could go ahead and sew them together and add sashing to the top and sides later.
May do that this afternoon.
I made one more sashing last night.
But need at least two more to finish and add.
 I spent a little while yesterday working on 2 1/2 inch squares for Missy's quilt to.
My gallon baggies getting pretty stuffed but it is going to take a lot more for a king sized quilt and pillow shams.

Got two sides on this block last Friday.
Cut a few more 2 1/2 inch squares for Missy's quilt.
I will start putting them together soon.
Hope to have five and maybe six large quilts finished by Christmas  for Christmas presents.
I have slowed down for some reason!
Couldn't be old age!
