Karen's Quilt

Hi friends!
Mindless sewing.
But when I started sewing the other half of the four square it didn't take me long to run out of white.

So now I have to cut!
Have a good week-end

Karen's Quilt

Hi friends!
I thought I would use a shoe box for the squares!
It's double this all the way around the white that I added. that's a lot of four patches

I sewed up a small stack, going to be a while that all you see is stacks of four patches . That will be all I have to post.
Went to Walmart yesterday and besides sore hurting feet I bought some more fusible fleece.
I just about used up all I had making casserole carriers!
I need to make at least two more. Maybe more than that. After all I have granddaughters setting up house keeping.
Have a good one

Karen's quilt

Hi friends!
Remember this? Well I started cutting 3 inch squares for the next few rows.
Just maybe a bazillion of them. My daughter's name is Karen , her two older  brother's named her before she was born.
I am using one more fabric.
I think this one will go with it to.
I am cutting two strips at a time then cutting 4 squares each time I cut. Maybe it will go faster that way or maybe I will make that 4 strips now after all I put a new blade in my rotary cutter , it should be able to cut that many,
I will see!
Any thing to make it go faster.
Took the day off yesterday and just talked to hubby and rested and read. With the spring he is outside for days during the day and some times until 8 at night.
He mows about 5 acres here with his john deer and his tractor.
Right now his has just spend a week working on john deer on the back porch so he was close to take brakes with.
But when he mows the south forty he is gone for a few hours . I can see him some times but mostly not.
This is with my big camera that my daughter gave me on zoom as far as it will go.
Every once in a while he talks about getting rid this place when he gets to old to take care of this yard but I remember when his parents lived here the yard was much smaller.
Have a good one

More Casserole Carriers

Hi friends!
More Casserole carriers.
Two that I made for Sis and sister-in-law.
I need to make at least two  more so that I have one.
This is my Brother that I quilt on. I lost the bag with the book and all the feet month's ago. I had a quilting foot on it and lots of bobbins in the mat that was under her.
I was cleaning up yesterday and found this.
That walking foot now lists at 88 dollars!  I was go glad to see that!
Now if all the other things I can't find would just turn up!!!!
When we have big family dinners I put things up, but then it takes me 6 month's to find them again.
I am going to have to draw me a map with places marked when I put them , but I would lose that to.

Casseroles carriers

Hi Friends!
Sunday , Tonia and Missy were talking about the casserole carrier I made them years ago and said they needed one smaller, so naturally I got a pattern Monday off the internet to make some.
I also got a free pattern for a make-up brush roll for my Tatum and Addie.

This was the first one!
This was the second one!
Though I would make my sis and sis in law one each and most of my girls one to. Abby has a whole set to go with her casserole dish's already that she bought years ago. But I will ask her if she wants one.
These are great for  carrying a dish to a meal at work.
I need to finish these and get back to work on my daughter's birthday quilt.
Have a good one

For the next 6 weeks I will be working on my daughter a birthday quilt.
She wanted burgundy and white.

Noah's Quilt


Hi friends!
I have so far bought these fabric's for Noah's quilt. That blue will look so good with his coloring.
His main sport is football, he loves it.
I plan to buy some falcons fabric to go with it.
The mail man brought me   what I need to quilt in the mail today.
After four are five years of quilting on my big machine I had really messed up the faceplate and had sometime or other broke part of the darning foot off so now I am ready.
Stay safe in these storms
Have a good one

I keep measuring and the sides are fine with the borders I have planned but the length needs a little more.

Tumbler!

Hi friends!
Yesterday I was finally able to start putting rows together.
I wanted to make sure no two of the same touched.

Making sure that both sides were the right length.
I intend to add three borders so it should be right for a king sized.

It's coming along nicely!

Tumbler Quilt

Hi friends!
Two more rows done this week-end!
I will start sewing them together this afternoon.
I may need a few more , when you sew them together they shrink a little.
But I will have a better idea of how many more I need to make.
We went to see Tommy's Cancer Dr. this morning and ever thing is still good.
That's one very big blessing!
Have a good one!

Tumbler Quilt

Hi friends!
A little mindless sewing.
Seven rows!
eight!
I have lots of lights but I may have to cut some more darks.
This is a great mindless sewing project after you cut a whole lot of them.
Since I love to cut I guess that's what I will do today.
