I thought I had this in here, but guess not. He's been after me all the time, wants all my quilts. He put dubs on these blocks and this is what he got.
Just finished the binding around it, which is white. Not the best picts. but here goes.
Another grandson and his quilt just about done. Will probably finish it by Friday and attach picts. Then I need to start working on ideas for VBS and maybe make the neighbor a quilt. My last quilt will be for my Christmas granddaughter that is the youngest of my four, so will have to come up with something special for her birthday and Christmas present. It took me so long to get into the mood to sew this winter and my machine has been acting up too. Oh well, next blog will have picture.
Finally finished what seems like I have been working on forever and my granddaughter turned 21 today. Won't be getting it into the mail for her until the snow stops and we can get down our mt. I know she will love it.
Well just finished this quilt up, by going around the dark blue block stars and stitched in the ditch around it. That was my first free hand on a queen quilt, thanks to a great teacher online. Wendy is her name on craftys. here's after pict.
Well my sister just yarned some of the quilt. She wants me to quilt around the applique stars to give it more punch, so am going to see if I can do that today. as time for graduation and her trip is ticking away. I just bought Quilting Large Quilts on a Small Machine, froms Craftys.com and I love her teaching. She teaches 4 different ways. Takes the fear away. Anyway, when I get done, will put another pict. on here.
Thanks to all for the compliments. Have slowed down on sewing, getting a reprieve I guess? Did get nieces quilt ready for her mother to yarn, for her daughters graduation next month. She is flying over to N.Carolina to surprise them at the graduation. This was english pieced stars appliqued to blocks. Actually got my sister to sew, haha!
Well, i had this almost all written and hit the wrong button and lost it all, so will start over. Have two more blocks finished for B&W quilt for downstairs bed. Have been working on all sorts of different blocks and am also trying to get nieces quilt finished. Winter gives me the opportunity to do alot of sewing, as I'm sure it does alot of us. The snow stuck me up on my hill for a couple weeks. It is melting now, so good bye cabin fever!
Well, so far this year, I have been doing BOMs that are on this site, plus one that is on craftsy's site. Really seem to be getting the hang of paper piecing. Am going to make a b&w and a sprinkle of red quilt for downstairs bedroom, so have a start, thanks to BOMs.
Well, finished decembers block yesterday and have a picture or two of the other 11. 12 blocks just aren't enough, so may have to work on that problem later. Bought some fat quarters from walmart that I may play with also this year...it seems I try to get ahead of myself and then get overwhelmed and nothing goes right, so may take a breather, i bet we all know what that is about, huh? You know, looking at all my stars together, i wish i would of had a common denominator, oh well ...a beginner BOMmer.
