I did that once, it turned out great. I also used the pieces stacked in my kitchen counter corners at different levels, 2 here, 3 there and used them to display my teapot collection.

SIL works for a counter company that uses marble. I'm collecting their scrap to make a marble quilt in the ground. This should be a challenge.

Life has gotten in the way of sewing these last couple of days. I have all my sewing stuff out and ready to go, maybe I can get to it this afternoon.

I've run into material like that ....just makes me nuts trying to keep the little balls of lint out of the machine. My machines are all old school...I barely know the difference between the needles since I do most of my work by hand. Glad your gift was appreciated.

I made my Granddaughter a pillow case that matches her new quilt. She requested it to be made out of what we call the soft bumpy lovey fabric, I think it's really called Minsk or Minsky. I use it as backing on all her quilts and she loves it. It's really hard to work with, slippery, the edges curl, it's thick and it sheds like crazy. I got it done though!

I got my quilt back today from the Quilters, 3 days, that's a record. Now I'll have to turn on the A/C in order to work on the binding. It's very hot down here in FL and rains expected tomorrow will shoot up the humidity. Not a good time to have a lap full of quilt.

My church has a very large stage area and it's almost waist high so I take my quilts there and spread them out, stand at the side, pin and pull towards the edge to get them pinned. Works pretty well. We have so many meetings in the church building during the week that sometimes I'll have women stop by and they dive in and help with the pinning . Fellowship has its rewards. I have family in Fla...coming north for the summer but stay in ochochobe (sp) during colder weather. Haven't been there for years. Have fun.

We live in FL. I got out my last quilt top and will get the batting, the last piece needed, sometime this weekend. I'm going to quilt this one myself before I lose the skill. I was just getting good at it when I found the quilter. The only thing I hate, it's really hard to spend that much time on the floor doing the layering and pinning.

Yesterday I finished my quilt top, made a label for it and made the binding. All I have to do is trim the batting then it's off to the quilters.

Yes, organization is good! I just got back from my first walk in about 10 days, it felt good. After I clean up I'm going to finish up my quilt top and get it ready for the quilter.

Our computers and phones went out at work for over 2 hours so I went and paid bills and took care of business while waiting for the lines to come back up. It really helps to have a little while to get organized. I'm debating on whether or not to start another top that was left by my mother or to start a new quilt of my own. I just need to balance a little.

I'm glad you enjoyed the retreat, I need to go to one some day. I'm feeling a little more human today, ready to start sewing except need to catch up on other things first like cleaning and errands. Maybe tomorrow.

I just got back from the Dr. She said the good news is that I don't have an allergy. The bad news is that I have the Shingles, in the worst possible place, the face and around the eyes. It will take 4 weeks to run it's course, basically 3 more weeks. It has effected my eyes very badly. I don't think I'll get my latest quilt finished anytime soon.

no my eye is not better and it has moved to the other eye as well. hopefully I'll get into the Dr. on Monday. It's killing me, I only have one border to put on and my quilt will be done. I can't see well enough to do it properly. Oh well, this too shall pass.

I have all my blocks done, placed on the bed for their location and my side triangles cut. All I have to do now is sew. I woke up this morning with some strange hives around one eye and the eye is swollen shut. It's hard working with only one eye so I'm not sure I'll do anymore today. Happy International Happiness Day!

I worked on my Granddaughter's quilt yesterday. I sewed 8 of 20 blocks and my back is killing me today. I don't have the best sewing area and my table to too low. I think I'll go slow today or maybe even take a break.

Picked up 2 quilts from DD today to use in the first program. One I made...took over 20 years and the other I finished from my mother. Love those things!

Keep Sparkin'!

I'll be heading home in about 10 days. Looking forward to seeing all my quilting buddies in the States. Last year when I was home, I made a quilt for my Dad's birthday and bought fabrics that inspired a quilt for my MIL's birthday quilt. Wonder what will happen this year.

Good job on selling your quilt and good job on the speaking engagements Tatter. I finally got out my material and got it all cut, hopefully I'll start sewing tomorrow.

long time, no log in......
I did finish a quilt top for a queen size, took it to work (in November) to show off and a gal wanted to buy it for her mother...I was not expecting that. I have been hand quilting like a mad woman trying to get it finished before March 31 for her Moms birthday.
I can't wait to get it done so that I can sit behind my machine again...create, create, create

It is what it is! Accept those things you cannot change, but change those that you can!

I temporarily put up the sewing machine and all my sewing stuff. The need to do my spring cleaning has struck. Starting the Ballet quilt after I'm done will be the reward.

I went to the quilt shop yesterday and got some more fabric for my next quilt. It is for my Granddaughter who just started ballet. It's all little ballet girls, pinks and purples which happen to be her favorite color. It will be diagonal blocks just like the one I just finished. Then I can use my newly learned skills quickly before I forget them. That quilt top has been put aside for now to be finished off when this quilt is done.

So I decided not to do the ripping. It only took off 1/4 inch off my outside points and since they all lost the point it looked like it was planned. My ladies down at my favorite quilt shop say: If you can't see the mistake from 15 feet it doesn't count! This was also just a scrappy quilt and hasn't cost me anything yet, it will be eventually used as a picnic quilt or a napping on the couch quilt for me. I learned a lot from making it, I love how the design and colors came out so I am very happy with it.

I'm sad to say the seam ripper must come out today. I was almost finished with the center piece of the top, only the borders to go when I realized I cut the side triangles too small. I didn't allow for the seams. This is my first quilt with diagonal blocks and it's my own design. It has definitely been a learning curve. It is made out of scapes from other quilts but nice scrapes and the colors were coming out good. I could let this go and cut off my end corners but I have decided the colors of the triangles is off too so there is really two mistakes. I'll be ripping for awhile today!

My quilt top is taking a lot longer than I expected. Diagonal blocks with lots of seams to match. I'm on the home stretch now.

Nearing the end of the top of my quilt. It's my first done on the diagonal, there are lots of seams to match. I'm getting tired, time for a short break after this.

Found out why it was so hard to reach the quilter...she moved out of the business and went home to open her shop there. Not much farther to drive...so no prob. I'll have the quilt in this week I think.
