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.

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
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!

Today

Hi friends!
I squared up another block and worked on some more sashing.
But it's going to take more than this. i just have the top done so far.
All i did yesterday between getting my hair cut and going to Q-Bee;s was cut some more 2 1/2 inch squares for Missy's quilt.
I have a good sized freezer bag full but it will take much more than that to do this!
Making this with Dawn HERE . She wanted people to make this with her.
And Missy loved it so i will make it for hopefully her Christmas present.
She wants pillow shams to go with it and i think i will start making them for each quilt.
Have a good one

Hand Work

Hi friends!
I got a little done on Kim's sashing yesterday, spent the weekend getting  some hand sewing lined up for if we lose power from Irma.
Got this one ready plus this one is ready to quilt so maybe if the power stays on today I will have it ready to finish binding. I am really liking this one!
I can always hand quilt the first wheelchair quilt.

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
This is a lot of work but should be worth it in the end.
I got one of the next blocks with a side finished but must have forgotten to take a picture.
You would think I cut myself with a rotary cutter but no!
I have pricked my fingers so many times with tiring to learn hand quilting that I am wearing Band-Aid's!
Have a good one friends

Addie's Quilt

Hi friends!
Yesterday I gathered every thing I needed and took it out on our enclosed back porch.
I keep a table set up out there for sandwiching.
I had picked out a sheet for the backing. Light pink!
I figured right quick that there was to much poly in this sheet!
This kind likes to crawl! I used one years ago in one of Kim's quilts and hated it!.
So maybe I will get some muslin next week when we go to Hammers sale for a backing. Not going to finish it this month any way.

Quilt Top!

Hi friendsThis is where I left off!
I cleaned Friday and then Sis came over so didn't get any sewing done  on this until Sunday.
I cut my borders and attached them, just small strips of the black fabric.
I measured and it measures 90 by 96! Should be a good size. A little bigger both ways than the chart says.
After washing it , should be just right.
Nice fall on both sides.
Just right!
Maybe I will have time to sandwich it today but I don't see how I could possibly finish it before Friday so I guess it will be a finish for next month.
Have a good day

Ripping! Addie's Quilt

Hi friends!
See one little square going the wrong way. Had to take out two so I could turn it and sew it back right.
I had one whole row that the blocks were fine but they were all turned on their side!
That was a easy fix just rip the side seams out and sew them back the way they were suppose to be.
Wednesday night I had three rows right and together.
Four rows joined, you have to love big blocks!
Five rows together!
I had already made the row for the border so I cut some strips of black.
One strip added then I cut some more strips.
Got house work to do today but I may take a minute to add another border just like this on the top. Haven't really made up my mind about that yet. it's very long as it is.
Have a great weekend

Kim's Quilt

Hi Friends!
This is mindless sewing!
I made enough to put a few blocks together.
Three across!
I need to make some for the tops and between the next three blocks.
Todayif I can! If not tomorrow
Went this morning and got some field corn to put in my soup. So that will take most of my day today.
I put these up Wednesday.
A couple of years ago a cousin told me to pickle my squash and since I had so much I tried it.
Don't know how it will taste but will try it in about two weeks.
Have a great weekend
Hugs

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
Didn't have much time to sew yesterday but I made another chain of the sashing. then I picked a block and laid it out with them.
Had to add to the block to square it up!
Not square but closer. The problem is finding the perfect angle to cut. None of my rulers work for that. May have to cut me one out of a old cereal box.
We have spent more money this year in this store than any fabric store ! Over 600 and counting.
John deer is getting old and it takes lots to keep in running. Glad hubby can work on it.
He swears next time he will by a new one!

Quilts and Machine

Hi friends!This is the last block for Addie's Quilt.
Haven't got them all sewed together yet but I did make this for the bottom.
So all the pieces are made to be put together next week. I have my backing and the battening is on it's way. I plan to add a small strip of black this and then another small strip of black.
Yesterday I made the sashing for Kim's quilt. Not all of it just a long line of it. This little machine has been very good but I miss my feather weight!
Hubby is working on her and if I can keep him from tightening the screws to tight maybe I will be able to clean her out good.

Got to go save my baby from muscles!
