Quilting Done

I took the quilt off the frame and sewed on the additional backing needed.  It didn't take long at all to resume and finish the quilting.  Done and looking good.

A sneak peak of the next top.  It has a lot to do with bags of 3.5 inch squares and bags of 3.5 inch four patches.  I'm so guilty of blocks in bags!!!!  They have to get used up soon before they may move me out.🐸🐸🐸

Sunny Thursday

I quilted this top the other day and the back is short.  How did that happen?  Ugh.  It is still on the long arm waiting for me ...

Some turkey tracks, a Bonnie Hunter pattern.

A wild and crazy top I completed but never posted.

Miss Kitty is Quilted

She is a beauty.  Maestro is the model inspector.  As soon as it was in the floor she was on it trying to cover herself.  I kind of yelled at her to stop.  Her look says "who me"?

A Real Cutie

A blogging friend  alefthandedquilter recently sent me three quilts to enhance with free motion quilting.  Well I got one on the long arm this morning and played.  I left the fabric that was sewn on for attaching to the leader in the picture.  This made it very easy for me to attach to my red snappers (a clamping device for loading a quilt top).   🐸🐸🐸

A Bag of Blocks

Yes another bag of blocks pulled out and sewn together.  I don't remember when I made these blocks.  They are cute though.  After sewing rows, I wanted a spot where your eye could rest a little.  I auditioned a few fabrics and favored the confetti on white but I picked that creamy yellow as it had the subtle movement I wanted.  Each row will have a strip of this fabric.  It will also encase the blocks.  It will be finished up as Quilty Hug.

My sewing time is limited as I get tired easily.  Just to do a little bit means the world to me.  Progress is progress.  Other than this sewing I have been hand appliqueing.

I have been on the quiet side lately and there has been a reason for that.  I was diagnosed with bladder cancer and had surgery April 12th.  It was performed as out patient and I went home with a catheter ugh.......  But I dealt with it.  The catheter came out this morning and I am doing well.  I slept ALL night and feel like a new person today.  I will be getting BCG therapy in two months.  The good news (if there is ever good news with cancer) is that this cancer is very controllable.  After the initial BCG treatment there will be BCG maintenance therapy in the future.  If you are wondering how it was found well it's simple.  When you see blood in your urine you better get to the doctor as soon as possible.  Do not wait!  Awareness is everything and this is why I decided to share this information.

And since a post is boring without pictures I selected a few..🐸🐸🐸

1st picture is a Quilty Hug quilt and I can remember the man I gave it to.  He was so proud of it.
2nd picture is my devoted cat Maestro.
3rd picture is a beautiful commission quilt for a good friend in Scotland.
4th picture is Denise's quilt using strings and curves.

Cat Nine Patch

Well the center is together.  I'm pleased with the outcome.  This will be for a Queen sized bed (mine) so it needs to get wider and not too much longer.  All the nine patches have cat fabrics along with the paws in the alternating blocks.  Enjoy...🐸🐸🐸

Jelly Beans Bound and Aged Project

I put the binding on the Jelly Beans Quilt this morning.  I LOVE this quilt.  I may have a problem giving this one away.....

Months ago I made a zip lock bag full of nine patch blocks (3.5 inches unfinished).  These were all made with cat fabrics.  I dug them out and matched each one with a 3.5 paw fabric.  Sewn into long lengths, I think I am ready to press them and sew rows together.  I'm not sure of the exact lay out but it will come to me.  ðŸ¸ðŸ¸ðŸ¸

The Joy of Giving

Mr Frog Quilter and I went to the chemo treatment center today and gave quilts.  Oh the smiles and thanks we received.  I wish I had more.....  Next time.

Enjoy 🐸🐸🐸
