QOV

I have been trying to catch up, clean up my sewing area (a never ending battle). So one of the items to finish was a quilt top that was made from QOV scraps that were left over from making kits.

It only needed borders sewn. Did that. Next let's get this top loaded so it can goto the binding group and out of my house. Woohoo!


Pieces and parts all made there way here.


Of course I was short using all one fabric so I split the beige fabric and inserted another, blue fabric. Even the back has a personality.


Friday found me in St Matthews making silent auction gift baskets and door prize baskets. There are fifty something baskets made up. THERE IS STILL TIME TO GET YOUR TICKET to see Marriane and daughter Mary for day of fun. The event will raise funds for QOV so we can make more and more quilts. I have tickets if you would like to get one $60.00.

Friday Fun

This is the quilt I quilted today. Leaves in a earth color thread. Karen M pieced this top. Lovely colors, perfect for a guy.


This will make a veteran snugly this winter.

Busy as ever

Last weekend my husband I presented a QOV to hubs best friend. This quilt lay in the closet for months just waiting to be presented. Here is Rick looking and smiling at his quilt.


And while we are on the QOV subject there are still tickets available for Marianne and Mary Fons. They will be presenting two lectures and presenting QOV to a group of veterans. The event will take place at the armory in Columbia SC on September 20, 2014. I have tickets if you are interested for $60.00. This next picture is the one I will turn in that day.


All it needs is a label.

Update on my Benjamin Bigs quilt - I started on the border swag and am loving it. This is one of the long sides. Can't wait till I get some more color in it.

Feathers and more Feathers

This morning I loaded a QOV and proceeded to quilt it. A few hours later I had a beautiful quilt mostly done in feathers. There was some swirlies too.





The back outside on the deck. You can't really see the quilting.


This next picture was taken inside to show the quilting. The back is white tone on tone.


I added a few more postage stamp blocks. These are not strip pieced. I start with 1.5 inch blocks, and create10 by 10. I can finish one in about 40 minutes. I'm going to name this one Confetti.

More Scrappy Trip Blocks

My 2.5 inch strip drawer is busting it's lid so I've been making scrappy trip blocks. I like to keep a stack on hand. When I need a quilt in a hurry I grab the blocks and go. I have lots of other blocks made just waiting. The pile you see is 36.





A nice flower arrangement seen in Scotland this year. I love the vivid purple.

Weekend Quilting

Friday I quilted this top using a double bubble panto, free hand.


This quilt will be the one I turn in at the big Fons event in September.

Today I free handed this blue top using different designs. I think it came out rather nice.


I challenged myself with this top. It's not perfect but the more I stretch my skills the better I get.

Hope you are having a good weekend and are stitching something.

Catching Up

This a QOV I quilted last weekend. I started to post it but never finished.





Sweet Lucy snoozing.


Today I have going through piles of stuff like batting scraps, miscellaneous trying to clean up. Hubs installed a new kitchen faucet. The previous one just didn't last. We'll see how long this one goes.

We finished putting together the new patio table and chairs. Then the screened porch needed tidying. Looks really nice. I foresee many days sitting outside in nice comfy chairs. More tomorrow.
