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!

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!
