Nov.18…Hand Quilt Along…

Quilts connect the past with the present and the future

I would like to introduce you to “Grammy”, she was buried among to other unfinished projects that I have stuffed away. Grammy was a delight to rediscover,and I was rather surprised at not having had finished this top. Oh ,bother what can I say other than I am feathered brained at times 🤷🏻‍♀️

I called this one Grammy for it was reminds me of my Grammy.. dresses and aprons that she would wear. The fans are old vintage fabrics from the 1920’s to the 1930’s set into muslin ,the backing is an old piece of cotton fabric that was 36″ wide ..so I’m guessing it might be a 1940’s piece.

Grammy just after I had marked her for quilting

Where I was when I left off…

Which is a good half way done..

Where I’m picking back up an unfinished job.

It is a queen size quilt. Here’s where I start…

Next quilt along I’ll count the blocks that are finished and how many more I need to go as it will be hard to show with lap quilting how far I’ve gotten.

Now for the Fire Island Hosta quilt.. here is where I was..

I was working on the end at the top last update ,now I have that end finished rolled the quilt worked from top to bottom ,rolled again,now I am working at the bottom moving towards the top of the photo.

That’s it for me. Have a great week!

Oct.28..Hand Quilt Along

I found this on google,…perfect I thought to go with the old fabrics in the double wedding ring quilt . This granny didn’t make this quilt with a certain family member in mind but I’m sure it will find its favorite person down the road.😀

I have finished the double wedding ring quilt. It is a great feeling to see it hanging on the back of the couch…finally ..after being forgot then to be found while looking for something else.😁

Now I must find another project that’s been floating around that needs finishing up,and also get back to the Fire Island Hosta quilt.

Have a great week!

Oct.14… Mother Nature…..

I’ve been in awe of her in many ways these last few weeks with the hurricanes then beautiful days.

She is also keeping me busy cleaning up after her! We had leaves plastered to our vehicles,house and shop like we were trying to camouflage them.

We had a few scary moments driving..

Then Mother Nature gives moments of absolute wonder…

Provides relaxation..

And then there’s critters,flowers and fungi…

Truly the poetry of earth is never done!

Have a great week !

Always do the right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

It’s update time… that means three more weeks have flown by… while that means I have had a change in the daily routine ,for we took Leona camping, I was able to quilt on my double wedding ring that I had put away until cooler weather. The weather hasn’t cooled off much as of yet , but the breeze off the lake was perfect for quilting.

So here’s the update… no work done on the Fire Island Hosta quilt worth bothering with. So here’s the Double wedding ring quilt …. last time…

I had nine of the circles finished… today I have 17 circles finished with three more circles until complete.

Details…

Also a warm welcome to Gretchen! Glad you joined us.

Sept 16….Hand Quilt along

Yesterday is history🍄 Tomorrow is a mystery 🍂Today is a gift.🍄

Time again for update!🙂

Here is where I was three weeks ago….

As you can see I didn’t make record breaking progress this time! I didn’t even get to the end here on the left side.

I’m working there where the thread spools are.

I did however get a chance to work on this cathedral window quilt a little . Here is where I was…

And where I am now..

Looks like I need to add some more muslin blocks on as I have plenty of old fabric blocks to add.

Until next update,happy sewing!😀

Sept. 11… Elements of different kinds…

Or Miscellaneous.🙂 That’s what this post will be.

Yesterday, my youngest daughter turned 21, that’s hard to believe!

Here she is,enjoying some chill out time. Some friends have a pool, which they gladly share with her.

Hubby and three of the boys took scuba diving lessons,and are now certified divers. They are now taking search and recovery lessons,their goal is to be of service to the fire department, but there’s lots of classes to be taken yet. But they have the first step completed. I’m proud of them.

I received a letter in the mail this week from one of the ladies I put a top together for. Miss Pauline was so excited! She had enter her quilt ,which she had finished by hand quilting it, at the local fair. The quilt took Grand Champion …that was a pleasant surprise for me as well. Miss Pauline holding the quilt.

And here a photo of the top that I put together. It is only showing half of the quilt though,the other side is a repeat of what you see.

and of course, I love it when I get notes like this from a grandson 😍

We have twin deer fawns that play in the yard and pasture,the one was very curious to see who was on the other side of the tree.

I still make a little time for drawing ,I’m hoping this winter life slows down and I have more time to practice. Here’s a few…

An old church just down the road… one of the few last standing slave shack… a few cherries…. and an old house being grown over by weeds and brush.

Have a great week! Deb

Aug.26 Hand Quilt along

I only quilt on days that end in ” Y”

Big welcome to Karrin , as she joins the group!

I’ve not been in the blogging spirit lately, days are so filled with summer work, getting work done ahead of time for when we want to go camping this fall…like splitting a pile of wood to season for winter, chalking the camper, fixing the fencing around the horse pasture and I have a compost barrel started as I’m going to make another raised bed as the one I have now,did so good thing year.

Now to get back on track with the quilting! I got half way !!💃💃 Here’s where I was last time.

I had just finished the left hand side of the quilt to the half way mark. Now I finished the right side of the row which finished the half way mark, I rolled it and am started back ,working the right side moving toward the left side.

I’m working where the thread and scissor’s are. At few details.. nothing new.

Here’s the list of others that are doing the hand quilt along
