Two Months of Stitching

Life is good and some stitching has happened.


 

A paper pieced table runner Wild and Goosey by Bonnie Humter.


A charity quilt made of the remains of at least 5 charm packs . It goes to the LAQ tomorrow and then on to a local charity group.


Three previous pieces of stitching came out to play.


 This almost finished applique was supposed to be one of 4. It is now destined to stand alone. Updates as work progresses.



Still looking for a bit of zing while working on border pieces.



I think the spirals may find a home after Christmas.  For now they are back in the parts department.

All of these quilts are slow stitching which is just fine with me.

Enjoy Terry

Quarterly Report


I'm still here. Just not much posting but perhaps warm weather will encourage me to come out of hibernation.


All three grand children on the morning following the Great Sleepover.



The aftermath of the sleepover . Lots of quilts as the three Grandies managed to sleep side by side.





The start of a charity quilt using Bonnie Hunter's  pattern Scrappy Mountain Majesty.
The group I was making this for was making quilts for cancer patients and my bed topper in cheddar needed to be longer. Making more blocks for added length sent me to red because all the cheddar was already in the quilt.

The finished top has gone to the LAQ and gifted.



The star quilt has also returned from the LAQ and is in the binding que.


Another baby quilt on the toddler bed. I just finished the binding and it's in the wash.
The recipent is due soon.



The finale more hexigons. They are only coming out when a project is needed for the train or a waiting room.

Off to hang up the baby quilt to dry in the fresh spring breeze.

Finishes

No excuses I just haven't posted for over 2 months but there has ben sewing and life.

3 more quilt tops have been completed . I must say it is a good feeling.


Finished 

Pieced back

Close up

Bonnie Hunter's  Rick Rack Nines is a swap of fabric strips randomly assembled. I worked on this on and off during the last hip replacement. I named mine Line Dancing because I am now able to sort of shuffle along with the grandies.



City Lights 
A quilt camp top from last spring .


A 15 min play exercise from Victoria 
Findly Wolf. This one has been a top for over 6 years. Happy to have it finished.


All these strips became the bindings for the 3 quilts.

Recently I have switched to magic binding.  Yes there is more cutting and two strips to make each binding BUT a nice machine attached binding.

My old hands love it.

Hope you are having nice weather. I am looking out at blue sky with cotton ball clouds.
