Last bit!

Hi friends!
Got the bottom border sewed on!
I sewed up one part of the fours patch's and added it and the strip pf white.
Today I will make the last part of the top border!
Yahh!
Close to a finish !
But it's the next part that's so much fun!
Putting together a king sized quilt is a pain!
Don't mind quilting it It's just getting all those wrinkles out . Oh well will just take my time and get it done.
Love all my kids!

Missy's

Hi friends!
Took a few days off to just do mindless sewing!
But today started sewing my bottom border on and this is as far as I got. Going to have to make some more!
So I will be sewing four patch's together this weekend.
Need three more all together to do the other bottom and both tops one's.
Have a good one

Borders

Hi Friends!
Started the border on the other side!
Then the stripe
Two Side borders!
Got to try to design some shams!
Can't do a big star on them!
So I am turning some ideas over and over.
Until one takes my fancy!
Have a good one

Missy's border

Hi friends!
Got her ironed!
Then I started on one border.
The border is one row of four patch's and a strip of white and another row of four patch's.
Here I have one row and the strip of white.
But this is just one side!
There It is! One side done!
More later this week!

Next the Border's

Hi friends!
Upside down but it works, I had all of this sewed together.
So yesterday I worked on adding the top!
I had one row to many on it on each side  and took them off ! After removing the last one I though" Dummy you could have added another onto the main part!"
Would have been a whole lot simpler! But then I had to widen a few seams on the top star points because it had the right amount of squares but was two large , after fixing that I added it back on.
Now all I like is starching and ironing this baby to death and adding borders to have the top finished. Then the quilting of a king size quilt comes!
But at least I am making progress!
Have a great weekend

Missy"s quilt

Hi Friends!
Made the last point of the stars!
Yay!
Now I am joining them together.
So far no problems!
Why I have no idea unless It's Gods hand because I added those t-shirts and did't ever measure to see if I had the right amount of middle!
I added the bottom on first then one side , so far so good.
Them I added the  other side!  Perfect!
Every thing together but the top star!
I already know I have to work on it to get it to fit!
Talk to you later

Missy's Quilt

Hi Friends!
One of a kind!
You can certainly say that about this quilt.
Not going to be another one just like it!
I sewed  the bottom part on and moved the side I had finished over to the other side so I had more room to move.
One side  point nearly finished! Not quit to the point!
A little better picture. Hope to get the other point finished by the weekend.
We have lots to do so I might not!
Still have to get all these parts together before I add the borders.
At least I am making a dent in my scraps!
Hugs

Talk to you later.

Missy's quilt

Hi friends!
Here is where I stopped! Needed to cut some more white squares to finish.
I did and started putting it together.
I sewed the pieces together to make this.
Then tackled the other side.
Of course I will have to measure to see if it will fit or if I should adde some white to close it up.
Now I need to to the other side.
But it's looking good!
It's going to be one whopper of a king sized quilt!

Missy's Quilt

Hi Friends!
Worked on this Sunday afternoon a while. Finished the other star point.
Finished the star point but haven't joined them  going to work on the sides some this week. Then when I finish both sides I will add it on to the center.
After that all I will like is the borders.
Prayers for my Grandson Eli, a building fell on him last week. No insurance. refused to stay at the hospital and wife had to carry him back to ER last night. Worried about him . He is a sweet precious boy with my eyes .

Missy's star points

Hi friends!
I have been working on the star points on the top of the quilt.
Making the points!
Nearly finished with this side.
Started on the other point!
The top part of my quilt is a little smaller than the bottom so I will have to add some where to get it to match. That's a project for this weekend.
 Have a good one

Missy's Quilt

Hi friends!
Yesterday I worked on some strips on Missy's quilt.
The single's are for between the star points and the double's are for the border.
Mindless sewing at it's best!
Got a little carried away. Now I can start putting them together again.
I bought new pans to go under the eyes and cleaned my stove, now it looks like a new one. When we bought this some male idiot thought if the eyes went on and off it would save power.
Wish I had keep the one I had!
See our poor old mail box , looks to me like a teen with a metal bat hit it.
Tommy got the new one up and put the old one in it's box, said he would try to straighten it out and maybe use it next time.
Have a good one

Missy's and Strawberry's

Hi Friends!
Still sewing 2 1/2 inch squares together.
I counted the squares on the top corners and I didn't have enough so had to cut some more white. Finally I got them right! And started adding strips to the sides .
See , added a few lines trying to figure out how to do the sides because It's longer than the top and bottom so want work out like that did.
It's slow going when you have to stop and cut some more.!
We got strawberry's from Noah and Hagon for the baseball team.
Got one of these from each grandson.
I didn't get the chance to work on them until Friday.
That's all the sugar that whole bowl gets!
I was eating as I went , they were so sweet , just picked!
Ten pints! I may have eaten enough to fill a few more bags!
No calories right?

Missy's

Hi friends!
I got one of the top corners done!
This one isn't sewed together yet!
I moved the whole top over so I could work on the corner so it's a little off center. It's beginning to look like a quilt!
Hubby went yesterday and picked up our last half flat of strawberries, so today I will work on putting them in the freezer. And cleaning this house!
It gets sadly  ignored when I sew a lot.
Have a great weekend
Hugs
