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!
Hugs

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!

Addie's quilt.

Hi friends!
I now have enough blocks to put together for her quilt.
Debating on a small border because it will then be 95 inches but going to sew it together first because they will take up some.
Maybe I can get that done tomorrow before I go back on Kim's quilt. Then I will start a quilt for either Tatum or Mark because that's my next two grand's to make one for and I hope before Christmas to get Allison's and Jarod's quilt made to.
Have a great weekend

Addie's Quilt

Hi friends!
I have three sewed together, but just in rows , haven't joined the rows together yet because I want to work with the placement.
The top row is just finished blocks laid out.
It's getting really big , haven't decided if I want two more rows are one with a small border.
Their is plenty of fall on both sides so I don't really need a border.
I may just add one for the top and one for the bottom, that would make a really big queen.
This is just some of the pinks that are in it.
Have a good one

Here Today

Hi friends!
Their is something wrong with this block! It gets smaller on the top so back to the drawing board or seam ripper!
After much fooling with it I have this.
Still needs a little work and then I will get another block ready. It's hard to get a square block when you don't have any thing that big and a sewing machine is sitting on the top of your cutting mat.
I shall move the sewing machine.
Like my new to me sewing machine.
She sews the best stitch's to.

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
Cutting two inch squares for Kim's quilt.
Using two and a half squares of white.
Going to make four strips to go around each block with lots of colors. Of course I will just make four for the first block after that I will join to this.
 Liking this a lot!
And use up a lot of scraps doing it.
Want to spend today playing!
Maybe I will make inroads in this quilt.

Back to Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
I finished up another row last week and then changed over to Kim's quilt.
I had worried and messed with different ways to put the blocks together because the picture shows one block but the quilt is  folded so that's all you can  really see.
I was reading blogs and came across a quilt , I know not where, that I loved the way they had the blocks finished so I thought I would try that. I squared up one block and started making these.
That was as far as I got because I had only sewed about 15 minutes in the last four days.
Friday night we had my brother , his wife and my sis over because Tommy and brother both had birthdays in July.
And Sunday all His girls came over for his birthday dinner and we spent yesterday with his sister.
So I really miss, miss sewing!

Addie's Quilt

Hi friends!
I took what I had and sewed them five to a row!
That gives it plenty of fall.
When I finished these two rows I had two left so I made another three yesterday.
Got to cut some more and make a few more rows.
I ordered 4 yards of black to do this and reordered it again yesterday.
Going to make as many as I can and then start back on Kim's quilt .
until the order comes in!
Have a good one

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
It's like putting pieces of a puzzle together since the picture shows one block and that's all. So I am trying to figure out how to get all the pieces to fit together.
I think I have enough blocks done now just to add triangles where they are needed to fit it all together.
May have to be a magician to figure out the way to get it together.
Just have to work on that.

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
Spent some time on the next step of Kim's quilt!
That took a while to figure out.
We went to see my Dr. this afternoon and then went to red Lobster and had a early supper or late lunch.
Just got home and feeling rough. Ate to much!
That's the only time we eat much is when we eat out.
Maybe I can get another block done and join two blocks before Wednesday.
They are big blocks. Going to take a while to get them this far and all together.
Have a good one

Addies Quilt

Hi friends!
These are like chips, additive!
Yesterday we run around for a while then I came home and made two more of these before going to Q-Bee's.
Maybe I will get one done today. If I ever make it again I will use smaller squares but
for this size , you know me the bigger, the better.
Next week I will go back to Kim's quilt but I may sneak in one of these a day.
We will see!
I told myself that only two at a time but this must be how a addict feels .
I just want to do them all.
We were talking about that at Q-Bee's last .You can't die until you use up all your fabric.
So we will be living to be 300 years old!
Have a great weekend

Progress on Addie's Quilt

Hi friends!
These are addictive!
Fine down so i did another last night.
I am just loving this quilt! Addie is a good color picker outer.
Maybe i should let her do all my picking out from now on.
I hate to say this but pretty soon Tatum will be going to College [ i can't believe that she is that old and i hate she will be so far away] but when she gets to her dorm room she will send me the colors for her quilt. So i can make her one. By then i should have the ones i am working on finished! I hope!
Have a good one

Addies Quilt

Hi Friends!
Aren't they pretty?
My only wall with out a door or window is across from the bathroom in the hall.
It's hard to get a good picture because there is no light and no room. I sent her a picture of one of her blocks last night and she loved it.
Now all I want to do is make these blocks!
But I have other work to do so I will just make one a day maybe!
We went to get some more flea spray yesterday because the powder we bought earlier doesn't seem to be working so Hubby plans to spray the dogs and their houses and the dog yard Hoping to get rite of them, no winter in the south means lots more bugs of all kinds.
The dogs have never had this problem and we have had them nearly 12 years.
Have a good one

Addie's Quilt

Hi friends!
I have finally found the block for Addie Lou's quilt. She wanted pale pink and black.
I love this !
I cut up a few so when I have a moment I can sew up a few more blocks.
They are 14 inches so should be a fast finish.

Kim's Quilt

Hi friends!
This is the fabric I picked to go on this block. Not sure I like it! It may be just to light.
I am working on this block on the right!
This is the fabric, pardon my shadow.  It's very light checks !
It doesn't seem to show up at all!
I may finish it up and wait to see how it looks in the whole quilt.
Hopefully it will make it look old and faded because the picture she gave me  of the quilt looks that way.
Have a good one
Hugs

Kim's Quilt


Hi friends!
I made two different sizes for this block. Then looked at it for a couple of days
 to see what I liked best.
Went with the bigger ones.
This is the second , not quite finished but  lighter colors should make it looked more like what she wanted.
Three of these across should make a nice sized queen.
Dawn sent me this beautiful table topper and two Mug Rugs , one for me and one for Tommy.
Wasn't that sweet?
Just love that sweet little topper!
Hugs
