A Quilty Hug

I quilted this top yesterday afternoon in a burst of energy before dinner time.  I went with simple fun circles of different sizes.  Two different fabrics for the back.
This quilt will be one of my Quilty Hugs to give at our next chemo session.

Holiday Sewing

I have been steadily sewing away my time off from work.  Recently I watched a video  from Missouri Quilt Company.  She called these blocks Jumping Jacks.  I started making these blocks but then found I like them better a different way.  The first photo shows a set of smaller blocks, each quarter block is four inches.  The block size is eight inches.

These next blocks are the original one I started with.  I got the seam ripper out and ripped the center seam, then resewed them.

The newest batch.

. It will be a Here is a baby quilt that I finished, putting the binding on by matching and hand stitching the label.It will be a gift for a lady at work.

Round 5 Time for Joy

It's  chemo round five for my husband and that means I give a quilt.  Today's quilt is a scrappy trip around the world.  The recipient was an older women having her first out patient chemo session.  She cried.  Then later in talking with her husband he also started crying.  My heart was filled at that point.    🐸

A QOV in progress

This QOV is quilting this morning as I do other things in my sewing room.  She did not have any organizations in her area so I volunteered to finish and donate to our local QOV chapter.  She was so generous to include the backing and fabric for the binding.  There was also some piano key blocks that she tried to use as a border.  It didn't work for her.  I am using them as orphans in a chemo quilt (Quilty Hugs).  So win win all around!

This top came to me from 
http://vroomansquilts.blogspot.com .  She had done Saphire Stars which was a mystery hosted by Kevin .  I will show the completed quilting later today.  🐸

The Left Eze Euler

On Ringo Lake step 4 was released this morning.  So after work I began cutting the aqua squares and then the brown triangles.  Some of you know that I am left handed living in a right handed world.  I recently acquired the Left Eze Ruler and I love it.  Make cutting so easy.  It was created by A Left Handed Quilter.  Kitty can be reached here

More progress to come later in the weekend.  🐸

More Tops for Quilt Hugs

Yesterday and this morning I concentrated on tops for Quilty hugs.  I used clue three of On Ringo Lake as my leader and ender.  Slowly everything gets accomplished.

This afternoon I need to load a customer quilt.  🐸

Two More Given

Last night was our monthly quilt quild meeting.  I had received two requests for quilts.  They each agreed to sew down the binding.  One will go to a newly diagnosed cancer patient and the other will go to a lady going through some difficult times.  Enjoy 🐸

Round Four and Joy

It's day two of chemo round four and that means it was time to give joy.  The joy of giving quilty hugs in the form of a warm quilt.  I made two women very happy.

I forgot to get a picture of the finished quilts but you get the idea.

I also support our Knight Bee guild and there was two requests so I will be taking care of those.  I have one more quilt to give to tomorrow.  The recipient already knows.  At chemo the friends you make become part of your family.  Especially ones that are on the same therapy schedule.  🐸

A busy two days

I quilted a customer quilt top.

And then I worked on a top from M's scrap bag.  I squared it up and started adding borders.  All it needs now are some pumpkins appliqued.

A fast baby quilt

I started this baby quilt yesterday and quilted it today.  I was testing how I had routed the extension cord for the little lap top that drives the quilt machine.  I'm happy to say that it worked wonderfully.  I now have a customer quilt top loaded and the quilting has begun.

Here are my progress pictures of the baby quilt.  Enjoy!

Maestro was checking to make sure I did it correctly lol.  She is such a sweetie.

Another Pretty One

I came home from work yesterday and was inspired to load a top and quilt it.  Started at five and was finished by 6:30pm.  This included sewing a backing together.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my blog friends.  You provide lots of inspiration and support and I thank you for that.   🐸
