July 7…. Hand quilt along update….

“Take your needle, my child, and work at your pattern–it will come out a rose by and by. Life is like that…one stitch at a time, taken patiently.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes

I didn’t get very far at all on the old log cabin, was having too much fun with grandchildren ,and with their parents as well! The last two weeks went by way tooooo…fast!

Children and summertime warm this Mom mom’s heart!

I must say my recliner feels good tonight though, my but little people have lots of energy!😍

I only got a little over half a block done.

June 16 …Hand quilt along update…..

Happy Father’s Day……It is hard to believe that it has been 13 years since my dad has passed away, and 3 months since Papa Bear has passed ! They both are truly missed.

Now time for the update. 😊

There are six blocks across the quilt with six rows from top to bottom giving a total of 36 blocks to do along with the border. I have finished four of the blocks ,working on number 5. Here I was last time…..

Here is where I am now…

I’m working where the thread is. Here is a crude drawing of how it is to be quilted.

The backing is a piece that I have had for awhile ,it is from Moda fabric .

Happy quilting folks until next time!

May 27… hand quilt along update

Sorry… folks I missed posting yesterday! We were camping in a no signal zone. It was a quick decision to go that I didn’t have time to schedule a post. It was a hot weekend of temps in the 98* to 100* so we went to find water.

I decided to do the log cabin quilt this time around. It will be a no marked quilt ,for I don’t want to have to wash this quilt in a machine. It just might be to fragile for that,or those reds bleed out when washed.

Here’s the start!

I’m not going to set any goals on this one ,what gets done in three weeks who knows.. if the hot weather continues in the 100’s in just might be a lot.

Until next time time check out the others lovely projects!

May 5… Hand Quilt Along update……

It’s done and given!💃💃💃💃👏😀

Here’s a picture of the happy couple!

Russell made the statement that he’ll be taking mom hugs back home with him…why whenever I need a mom hug I’ll just wrap myself up in it.

Now to this mom that was some very sweet words ,my sore fingers automatically were feeling wonderful.

I have two quilts that I have to make my mind up on. Which one would you folks like to see done first?

The log cabin one or the patch block…

That’s it for this update. Here’s my grand daughter getting her 11 month old pictures taken,my daughter for. The first year Lynn takes a photo of the baby to keep track of how they grow so quickly. Here’s Alexis… first photo went great ,the next went even better for Alexis!😄

April 14… Hand quilt along….

Tiger woods just won the masters,which is held an hr from where we live. Every year people are fixing up their homes for to rent out to folks attending the big event. That’s a plus for us ,as people and business need their doors whether it’s a garage door or a commercial store front door in good order…..

so what’s that got to do with quilting… Nothing,nothing at all..😁 just good to read that someone who messed up his life for a bit.. didn’t give up a passion of his but tried again!

Sorry to report I didn’t get to the end of the last row,even though I came close. I’m excited about being so close to the end though!! Russell’s are coming home around May 11 for a surprise birthday for hubby! I do hope I can have it ready to give it to them then to take home instead of mailing it.

Here’s what I have left to do,all that you see in the photo.

Until next update take care friends…

Check these out if you have time,and want to see some lovely at Home creativity.

March 24… Hand quilt along……

Three weeks just slipped by again! And I have a finish …💃💃

Little Grammy is finished ,I really like it.

Those old fabrics are so lovely!

I also had a baby blanket to crochet for a baby gift. Baby blankets are so fun to do.

I’m back to working on the Fire Island Hosta quilt ,I had to take it out of the frame ,my arms are short and the rolled finished part was getting to high for me to quilt comfortably.

I am working on the last row ,I’m on the corner working towards the right corner,when I get there it will be finishing time!

Jan. 20.. Hand quilt along…

There’s not to much to update this time,as I didn’t get a whole lot of quilting in these last few weeks. I was hoping to finish the double wedding ring.. that didn’t happen..why not? Well maybe this picture will explain what I have been doing while the weather is cooler.

We just have to smoke the bacon and hams yet , while I enjoy butchering ,it is a very good feeling when the last kettle is washed and put away until the next time. We did three nice size hogs this round.

While back to the update… I have three more blocks to finish on the double wedding ring.

The Fire Island Hosta really got no attention. Maybe a better progress report next time.

You know when ladies get together to quilt there was always lots of gossip,story telling or sharing a new idea…. well I happen to come across an old superstition about pins.

See a pin and pick it up ,And all the day you’ll have good luck..

See a pin and let it lie,and luck will surely pass you by.

And that set me to thinking.. I wonder if you ladies grew up with an old superstition? Please post a comment if you do I’d love to hear it. If there’s enough I post them on next update for all to enjoy.
