Love Quilts Abound

 I have been chipping away at the pile of love tops waiting on me.  One by one I am slowly getting them done. My friend S came and picked up ten to bind. Yay!!!

That’s all for now.  I’m headed downstairs to load a quilt.  🐸

Something for Me

 I finished this top at retreat last September 2021. It’s massive!

It was a leader ender project from Bonnie Hunter that really clicked.  I have a sizable bag of blocks left over which may become a lap quilt.  I’ll post better pictures later.  🐸

Time has slipped away

 From me. I truly did not mean to go this long without a post. 

The quilt drive for the Haywood flood victims was a great success with over 124 quilts completed. I did get a little burned out but have been back in the studio finishing chemo quilts.

This was a top donated from Nancy F.  It was supposed to have appliquéd flowers but I just did fancy quilting.  I really played with pro-stitcher and had fun!

Nancy also donated this stripy top which I added a small border to make it a little larger.  I like these quilts to be snuggled when getting treatment. 

The next two are from Lisa T.

I have been stitching the many inches of binding on these quilts.

A nice picture of the kitties sleeping the afternoon away.

And a cross stitch piece I finished myself. It is hanging on the fridge by way of a magnet.  I am stitching my evenings doing cross stitch as it is very peaceful. 

Back soon with more updates. 🐸

Love quilts quilting continues

 The quilting continues on most days. I usually quilt up two or three tops.  They are smallish so it doesn’t take forever to get them done.  They are quilted with a medium meander stitch.

I turned in a bunch Tuesday and received the last 20 tops.  Exhale a big sigh of relief!

The pictures do not show another eight completed that I had in my car.

Our goal was to make 100 quilts and I think we will make that goal.🐸😀

Wow Time Is Flying By

 And how has it been a month since I posted.  No clue.

I have been sewing like crazy. A few of us are making quilts 40 X 60 inches for the flood victims of Haywood County NC. They were flooded out from hurricane Fred. Our plan to provide enough to give out at Christmas time.  A lot of fabric has been used of which I am so glad. I need to see more progress so I will keep going.

I recently went on a quilt retreat in Jonesborough TN which was fabulous. It was a Sunday through Thursday morning long and boy did we eat. So much food, all good.  And the sewing ….  I did get my leaders and Enders top together. I will insert a better picture next time.  This is in progress. 

 The black and white corner stone patches were a happy accident as I forgot my jar of of 1.5 inch squares. Looking through the fabric I had brought I chose this one and it was perfect.

Some pictures of projects happening around the room:

It was a fun retreat and I signed up for next year.  🐸
