Productive Weekend!

I spend the entire weekend in my sewing studio getting all caught up on my sewing challenges. So I must be getting better. Except for this dog-gone cough! 

Anyway, I am caught up on my Dear Jane BOW/TOW. I posted some pictures yesterday, here are the rest.

Bottom Left Corner:  It took me 6 hours to complete this dog-gone triangle! 
I got confused with Blogger: That Quilt. So I printed the entire block. Then cut and pp in sections.





After looking at this block, I need to do over. My points are horrible! 

That is about it for me here. Tomorrow I will work on my Civil War Love Letter Quilt.

What week!

This week I have been fighting this doggone cold and I "think" I am finally getting over it! Yesterday I did nothing but sleep, sleep and sleep! I Woke up this morning feeling a little better. I didn't push myself but I did some straightening up around the house and did some sewing. 8) 

I am behind in my Dear Jane BOW/TOW. We are working on a block and a triangle a week. I am 3 weeks behind and I hoped to get them all done and caught up by tomorrow.  For my fabrics, I selected Grace by 3 Sisters for Moda fabrics. I fell in love with their deep red and brown fabrics. To add some color, I chose green print. It is hard to tell how it is going to look but in my mind, I think it will look great.

Here are some pictures of my triangles. I will take pictures of blocks tomorrow. My applique is not the greatest but I am working on it. 8)


I hope you finding time this weekend to sew! 8)

UFO Challenge

How is everyone doing on their UFO #9? 

Since I am finished with this quilt, I thought I would finish up on my Civil War Love Letter Quilt. I need 30 more blocks, adding the sashing and borders. I don't think I will be able to finish by the time I leave for the holidays. But at least I will get most of it done. 

Front Cover

I would love to hear from any participants. Don't forget to email me a picture of your quilt. 8)

So until January, 2013, I look forward to working the next UFO with you! 


Sampler Block 7

Took awhile but I finally completed my sampler block 7.  I am still toying as to how I am going to set blocks. I really get baffled when I am uncertain.

UFO#9 - From the Sky with Grace - Completed

It feels so GOOD that I actually finished a sampler! I made a change to the center of quilt. I didn't like what was on the pattern. I chose a Dear Jane applique block. I am happy with the results. What do you think?

Close this window
This is the actual picture of pattern. I didn't like the center nor the sides and corners. 




How is everyone doing on their UFO#9? I am looking forward to hearing from you. 8)

"MYSTERY" QUILT-A-LONG 2013


“Mystery”

Quilt-A-Long

June 1, 2013


This will be a 6 month “Mystery” Quilt-A-Long.  On the first of every month, I will post 3 blocks with instructions and illustrations and on 6th month, I will post the last 4 blocks plus sash, border and binding instructions and illustrations.  You don't have to use the sash and borders layout that I have selected. You may have a better idea for sash, border and binding. Whatever the case may be, it is your quilt! 8)
 I will reveal quilt layout in November 30, 2013 

Here is a quilt that I did for 2012.
