What a beautiful weekend this has turned out to be! Weather heat has been much reduced to 80’s with nights in the low sixties.

I am happy with the progress I had on Aunties quilt. I was able to finish a quarter of the quilt , I’m hoping to do another quarter or at least close too it.

Where I start from last update …

Two stars done and gray borders

Today four stars and borders finished.

Total of six stars done and working on the seventh.

That’s it for me . Happy stitching !

July,24….Hand quilt along update

Today was a warm one with temps at 98* with a feel of 111* … as of right now there’s a thunderstorm going through that is slinging down rain,and a thunder clap that made me jump out of my skin and back in again.😁

I’m happy with what I got done this round. I’ve started in the middle doing it in quarters , two blocks finished along with sides working on the third block.

In this quarter there will be two blocks across and three down,making six blocks in this quarter while the other quarter will only have 4 blocks.

Close up of quilting design.

That’s it for me this time, so off to see visit the others!

July 3 …. Hand quilt along update…..

I switched projects for a bit here. My whole cloth is put on hold until I get the quilt done for Auntie. I told hubby that I feel I’m racing auntie’s time clock,for she is 84. I would love to have it done for her before she passes on.

Here is where I left off on my whole cloth quilt.

I have folded this patient quilt up .

I was able to do all the appliqué for 20 blocks.

Don’t look to closely at the appliqué stitching… nothing like Kathy’s,or Nanette’s lovely appliqué. However the blocks were wonky so it all fits in.😀
It’s a big one … queen size

I have a good half of it marked. I’m doing mostly grid work with little flowers between the star points .Here’s a photo of the grid work.

Regular grid work on the borders … diamond in the strips between blocks. Then do each star point a quarter inch in from the seam,and outside edge.

A view of the sunset last week from the camper window.

And a photo of my new hybrid of sunflowers.😁

They were make from left over garage door parts… I didn’t make them though,they came from the door company that we deal with as a gift.

That’s it for me this round.

June 12… hand quilt along update….

Summer heat has hit us with sizzling temps,all this week we will see 95 to 102, perfect time to catch up on my quilting!

We are moved,so I’m looking forward to some crafting time.👏😀

I do a post on that tomorrow.

Now the update…. I was able to do a little quilting but not as much as I thought. I had two teeth pulled last week and I thought that I would be quilting during recovery…well that didn’t happen as soon as I got home from the dentist ,I reclined in the chair and promptly fell asleep.🫣😊

I think it was the pain killer ,for the next day I backed off of them,and felt much better.

This is close to what I can quilt in my hoop size.

I finished this hoop and did another hoop size just like this one.

I have a new project that my Auntie (on hubbys side) ask me to do as she can’t do it due to losing her eye sight.

There are 20 blocks that will finish out to 15 1/2 inches. I was going to inset the cream pieces to finish the blocks but the blocks are a bit wonky.

I’m going to leave them that way ,so that means appliqué is how it needs to be done. I not very good with appliqué so this is a bit of stretch for me. I did get a half of a block done to see if I could stick it out. I think I can ,but I will need y’all to keep me going.😀

Some of the old scrappy blocks hand sewn by great aunt of hubby’s given to Auntie. I would say these are 1940’s fabrics in very good condition.

Aren’t they just lovely!

That is it for me this round. Happy quilting ,friends!

May 24 …. Hand quilt along update….

A few days late? Yes indeed it is.😄

The whole family was here to enjoy a gathering before Mikes left for their new home in PR.

We had a wonderful long weekend. It all went by waayyy to fast. Here’s a photo of the two little girls who are only a three months apart.

🥰

Now time for update! I’m excited to say that I was able to squeeze in quilting time in the evenings. It was wonderful to quilt again!

I have the blue area finished!👏👏

I’m starting on the red part with just a little bit done.

That’s it for me. Happy stitching until next update!

March 20…Hand quilt along update…

Spring has arrived here,but before it did winter had to give us a freeze like we haven’t had all winter! I lost a lot of young plants in my raised bed because of the freeze with wind. Oh well… I’ll just move on to summer things. No sense in crying over spilled milk right!😀

One of the last Camilla flowers hanging on.

Time now for update! I wasn’t as lazy this round,and took a picture of the quilt. I don’t know exactly how much I have done in the last three weeks but it does show how much was done in six … the grid work a good half way around center piece.

The circle is where my hoop was ,(and back on again) the another blue area is what needs to be finished then it’s border time. I’m hoping that I can have most of the blue area done by the next update .. if I get stressed over this moving business it just might happen as quilting is my stress reliever. I will do a post on the move.

Happy stitching ,my friends until next update!

February 27….hand quilt along update….

It’s that time again… and three more weeks just went poof.

I decided to do something a little different for I’m too lazy to undo the hoop and lay it out to see the grid work being done.😁 I will show you a little of the grid work that’s done after a bit though.

I need extra light when working in the evenings on this quilt for our family room table lamps aren’t super bright. I tried those head lights that has a head band … didn’t like them.. they messed up my hair!😤 and I had to hold my head a certain way that put a kink in my neck. So then I tried the neck reading lamp… well that wasn’t much better for it was hard to focus the light right where I wanted it.( it would often be more of a nonsense for hubby shining on him instead.🤷🏻‍♀️)

So I had this 💡 moment… it’s works out great.

Direct light where I need it!
A C clamp holds it well, and the readers lamp is recharged by a Charger cord rather than batteries.

Now the grid work…

A rather boring part of the quilt .😄

Now on the see what everyone else is doing.

Jan.16… Hand quilt along update…

Half way through January, and it’s a windy,chilly day here in Ga.

This kind of weather makes quilting a real delight, curling up with the quilt your quilting on is sooo toasty warm.🙂

Sorry I didn’t get a post up and running last update. I was too weary after all the Christmas crew . I totally enjoyed all the grands and the children home,however we are adding up to be quite a crew with 22 mouths to feed for several days.

Update time! Last round I was here…

Now I’m here…

The braid and the lines are done with scallops being worked on and the grid work.

A closer look.

I need to add a Camilla to this post, my bushes are blooming their hearts out.

Then there were some that were in a bouquet ,and just about done gone. They still dressed up an old planter.
