Great Weekend



This past weekend was QSC Spring meeting which means girls weekend.  There was lots of talking sewing and fun.  I did manage to sew 34 mile a minute blocks in the hotel room.

This quilt was a secret project until Saturday.  This is the 2015 scholarship quilt.  Tickets will be sold until next year.  Love this quilt!

It's a Flimsy

I pushed to get this top together this morning. There is one block that needs to be rotated.



I'm thinking about a black border and then .......

Finish it up Friday

I finished up the quilting on this QOV. I started last weekend. I am ruler challenged and trying to improve this by using them. I bought this fabulous set of rulers from the quilted pineapple. My digital machine guide is waiting for a new set of wheels to be designed. So it's just me free handing everything.

My scrappy stars is now a flimsy...

I was fighting with the rain getting the picture. You can see the rain drops on the boards.





My other goal this weekend is to finish up comment blocks. You're going to love it.

Piano Keys

My sewing room looked like a tornado blew through. I made enough piano keys for the star top and then some. I took a pile of fabric and ran it through my go cutter. I cut too many and now the drawer is full, packed to the gills is more like it.

It's time to make another log cabin quilt using these strips. They are my all time favorite quilt. I have one on my bed and it sleeps wonderful.


I have attached the key sets to both long sides. I will wait on the other two sides as I want to make six pointed stars (EPP) in the corner blocks. It shouldn't take too long.


This is what it looked like before the keys were sewn on.


I also have been working on the APQ Four Patch challenge. I cleared out a bunch of scraps and cut two inch strips. Strip sets were sewn and I have cut about 2/3 of the sets. I have two big piles of four patches patiently waiting to be sewn.

Weekend Update

I quilted a Qov yesterday and just love how it came out. My new rails are awesome and quilting is SO SMOOTH. Feathers in the red border and swirly tongues on the rest.


Today I put my scrappy star blocks into a flimsy. Wow!





Maestro checking it out.

Making More Stars

I've decided that I need more than nine stars. One of those is a creamy white fabric which I am on the fence for using. I like the idea of just pink and blue. I started making more stars.





I made two pet beds today as the fiber bag was over flowing. Lucy immediately claimed it. It will be going to the animal hospital in town.

Scrappy Star Progress etc

I have a total of nine stars now. I think I need another row, so three more will be made.


This love (charity) quilt was on the frame this morning. Left over batting, and variegated YLI thread on top and so fine in the bobbin. I still have left over batting lol.


And for you cat lovers this is Maestro in her new favorite napping spot.


More later.
