Kim's Quilt


Hi friends!
Got my first 6 done. But the pattern calls for another ring of tri-angles around this and I am looking for the best fabric for it.
The picture of the quilt she wants  is light shades of colors but all I have are bright's.
My 7th one!
I have been cutting them out two at a time and putting them together.
This makes eight so I guess I had better add the next round to see how big the finished one is so I can plan how many I need.
Have a great weekend

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
I finished the yellow block and added this one.
This is a close up of the fabric I used.
Four Down , have no idea how many I need to make. When you make from a picture you don't get instruction's.

Block Five!
I enjoy making these blocks!
Using up fat quarters of different colors.

Father's Day



Hi friends!
 This is  Sable . She is our youngest g-g.
Missy had a pictures of her great grand paw holding her.
I was doing some thing and missed it.
We had a great dinner .
Then sit out on the porch for a couple of hours and just talked and eat ice cream.
He was happy that all his girls could make it .
Needless to say I didn't get much sewing done this weekend.

Flowers

Hi Friends!
This is just part of my blocks that I have made but not used.
I should put these together and make a quilt out of them. Doesn't look to promising does it?
I started Kim's quilt!  This may be to big for a repeat pattern. I will just have to see how it finish's. Their is more to this block!
My Rose of Sharon's are blooming.
I lost the one I rooted that came from my house 17 years ago. It died year before last.
But Sis gave me these.
One is the same and the other a lighter shade.
The tiger lily's are blooming all over, I moved these out of the ditch years ago so Hubby wouldn't  mow them down.
That drought last year killed my Hostia. Every bit of it and I had it down one side of the house.
Have a good one

Close

Hi friends!
I just need to go from one corner down to the other corner and then  I can take pictures!
Her Birthday is tomorrow but I want see her on her birthday because she has to work.
This weekend I will give it to her. Maybe I can finish binding this evening.
Hoping her brother can come up Sunday to eat for  her and his  birthday dinner with us. His is the first and her's is the eight of June.
His youngest is in Italy and will be back this weekend some time so he may have to pick her up at the airport Sunday. We will just have to wait and see.
His oldest is in Paris right now , I was worried about him yesterday but he said he was safe.
He was in London when that terrorist attack  happened to.
He is taking classes in three different country's this summer.  More College credits but I wish my grand's were here and safe.
I fully expect us to have that same problem soon with all the people that have been brought into this country with out deep checking!
Have a good one

Nearly finished

Hi friends!
It is now on the couch waiting for me to sew the binding down!
Her birthday is next week so I have to finish!
I've let every thing else go until I got this far. Now I will bind it every time I sit down which may be a lot because I am dragging.
That four days of running around all the time did a number on me, Tommy says it was the iron!
I was ironing the other day when my new iron shorted under my feet! My sandals has black smoke on them!
The cord had a open place and it got against a drop cord and almost took the lights out!
And me with it!
My sandals saved my life, Haha
Have a great weekend

Top finished!

Hi friends!
Finally got this sandwiched after having to add to the backing many times . Only to find after I got it sandwiched that I will not only need to add to the backing again but the queen sized battening wasn't big enough either.
So I will add some more of each before I start quilting. Hopefully I can get that done today. Wish me luck because not only to I have a sick Hubby but he has thrown his back out to!!!!

Daughter's Quilt

Hi friends!
Got that row of plus blocks added to the other side.
I am thinking of just one row on each side of 3 inch squares , color then white because it's so long now it really doesn't need to be any longer.
See like this chain of white and colored squares. And then maybe a strip of white and sandwich!
Right now I have one that needs sandwiching and two nearly there., I ordered some more battening but it want be here until next Tuesday if they are right.
I have followed orders going this way and that and taking way to long to get here.
Hopefully this one will get here when they say.
Have a good one

Daughter's Quilt

Hi friends!
I did a little on this quilt's borders.
I made a bunch of cross blocks and laid them out on one side to see how many it would take.
Sewed it together and pinned it. And sewed it onto the quilt.
Need to do the other one now.
I just didn't get a lot of sewing done this weekend.
It was a lazy weekend for us .
After I got to hot at the ball field where they had the graduation I just didn't have any get-up-and-go. But a lazy weekend now and then is good.
Sat. we had company, Kim and Richard. They had had some work done on their bathroom and brought pictures. After Mark graduated we left and Tommy got me a milk shake to recover. Good Hubby
Not on my diet but then we eat out yesterday to !  I had broiled cat fish! Better for you.
Have a good one

My Daughter's Birthday Quilt

Hi friends!
I added the rest of the burgundy solid strips , this part will cover a queen sized bed.
The next step was white strips all around. after this is geese!
Just across the top and bottom so maybe by Wednesday I will have some of them finished.
I also cut up some small pieces of fabric for tumblers and three inch squares for future quilts.
Trying to get my sewing room cleaned up so I can tell what I do have!
Have a good one
