Long Overdue Update

I should have posted pictures of Genes quilted top last week but ....  No excuses.  I loved playing with   Genes top and had the best time.




This quilt is going to quilty hugs.



This one will go on the stack for a baby quilt when needed.


Another quilty hug.


Now I need to fire up the embroidery machine and stitch out some labels and sew them on.

Getting to know you...

First I want to thank each one of you that left a comment on the last few posts.  I appreciate all the support you have given.  It has been a tough road the last 18 months.  I take it one day at a time.

Quilting has been my life saver.  I can truly turn grief into happiness for a needy person.  So I continue making quilty hugs for chemo patients.

I had ordered a Forte 24 from Handi Quilter and it sat in my garage a few weeks before I could arrange a day that the quilt shop and I could get it built and configured.  I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It has really nice features like a lit bobbin area, low bobbin alarm and tie offs.

Today I pulled out a top donated by Gene .  I found the perfect backing from my stash and spent the day playing.  I'm happy to say that I finished it and am pleased with the outcome.  I will post the finished quilt tomorrow.

Feeding the machine...

Life has been extra trying lately.  I been sewing as a way of relieving stress.

In a manner of using up a drawer full of 1.5 inch strips I have been making log cabin blocks.  Any and all fabric types work.  I have completed close to 100 8.5 inch blocks. 

Linking to Log Cabin Loonies

Our fur baby Mr Tale took sick and was taken to the Vet. Diagnosed with kidney failure, he died last night. The doctors did everything to try to reverse the kidney failure. So sad, he was only five years old. He had a wonderful personality and loved to show off on the kitty condo. He was commonly seen grooming / loving one of his two litter mate sisters.

Blocks make tops

I have had this pile of neutral string blocks and it was time to use them.  I love how this came out.  This will be quilted for a quilty hug.




BTW I order my new quilting machine Saturday.  HQ Fusion 24 with a ten foot table.   Yippee!

Plugging along

Did you miss me? Our friends have been here from Scotland we are having a lovely time. They leave tomorrow.

I have managed a few things.

A quilty hugs quilt which is a collaboration of bigger blocks for the spare parts bag.


The back with a Halloween theme.


I committed to two QOV quilts for a November award.  There is a large group of military members receiving them.


The back.


A Quilty hug top that started with a stack of blue squares.


I am binding this in hopes that a friend will want to purchase it.
