  2. Another productive day!

    by , 02-07-2012 at 03:47 PM (LeslieFrost -- life in the woods of NW Wisconsin)
    Finished my 'floating lanterns' mini top last night. It was sort of a bear to square up. Had to add borders to two sides to get the right size, but it worked, and the black fabric hides the seam lines. Then, I added a yellow flange and put the black binding on the front. Now, I just need to sew the binding from the back and add a label, and my Feb. DQ is ready early.

    Now, I'm on to my Feb. quilt for AAQI. I'm trying to use an old design called 'Exquisite'. I saw it in one of Gwen

  3. Backing material is purchased. On to the next step.

    by , 02-07-2012 at 02:59 PM (annthreecats ~~~my blissful crafting journey~~~)
    I went to JoAnn's after work tonight and purchased some dark blue material that I will use for the back and binding of the family reunion quilt. I have to wash it, then I want to piece in a few squares leftover from the front of the quilt. Then I will sandwich and quilt. I should get the quilting started this weekend. I hope to be done with the quilt by the end of the month.

    Yeah, everything is working out so well. I just have to take my time and finish the rest without rushing. ...

  6. pegusus

    by , 02-07-2012 at 03:52 AM
    I have a few quilts that I am making for the grandchildren. This one I finished on Christmas day and it took me about 3 months to do. I hand embroidered the pegusus with yarn as to achieve the detail and colors that I wanted. I love to draw and wanted to do something different with my art. This is what I ended up with...thanks for letting me share...

  7. Mug Mats form charm packs

    by , 02-06-2012 at 05:50 PM
    I was in a fabric store and found a pattern for a mug mat that
    was made from 6 pieces of a charm pack and a layer of batting.
    My question is what is the name of the pattern.
    To make the mug mat you layer the batting with two pieces of cloth and then place 4 pieces of fabric foldes and weaved on top and then stitched all aroundl. Then turned inside out and now it is done. WHAT IS THE NAME OF THE PATTERN? I want to send it to my sis.

  9. And the beginning of the next one!

    by , 02-06-2012 at 10:28 AM (LeslieFrost -- life in the woods of NW Wisconsin)
    This was a good weekend! Grocery shopped, made chicken corn chowder, had a potluck fish fry next door on Saturday. On Sunday, slept in, had snacks, watched Super Bowl with hubby and his brother, had more snacks, had soup, had baked chicken, more TV, and began sewing on my Feb. quilt for the DQ swap. No pics yet, but something I've wanted to do for awhile -- courthouse steps log cabin blocks that result in floating lanterns. It is turning out well, I think. I'm using 1" strips, which will ...

  10. Having Quilting Withdrawals...

    by , 02-06-2012 at 09:37 AM
    It has been almost 7 months since I have been on this site... Nursing school is consuming my every moment.. I have been ill for a few days and home sick today -decided to check out the happenings of the board. I so wish I had the time to join in the swaps with everyone. They are so much fun. I wish even more I had the time to sit and relax with my sewing. Sitting with school books is not a stress reliever...lol... However, I am on my journey - advancing small steps every day... so far it seems ...
