July 11…. Hand quilt along update…

I got a little to show this time .👏😀 I was able to put some stitches in while the family was here for the 4th….It’s fun to chat and quilt .

Here’s where I was last time.

I finished the row and have started back the other way to the right.

My daughter has fell in love with this quilt. She keeps saying it would look SO nice on the back of her couch… Christmas gift?🤫 I think she would be right happy with that.🙂

Just a quick update on little Felix.. the doctors are very pleased with his health right now. Mom and Dad can hold him as well as his grandparents. That was very exciting for them as his momma wasn’t able to hold little Felix for two weeks. Here’s a photo of him,his is still living with his Berlin heart waiting for a transplant.

Prays for him are sure appreciated.🥰

June 2… late update…

When I was young,I thought when you got older ,one didn’t have as much to do… wow, was that thought off!

Life has been busy,but good. LouAnn is home for a few weeks until she needs to go back to get ready for school again.

LouAnn and I have been going though closets reorganizing them,also getting rid of things that I’m not sure why it was there in the first place.

We went camping over Memorial Day weekend… it was a perfect weekend with perfect weather. It was a special blessing for Leona to be able to be outside with all of us instead of having to be inside in an air conditioned camper.

My quilting has come to a stand still, I won’t even try to set a goal for next update for my work load still doesn’t look like there’s time for quilting. I do hope though I can do a few stitches….

I would like to share some blocks, that an Aunt on hubby side,gave to me. They are from hubby’s great grandmother Alice.

Early 1900’s fabric

I was delighted to receive these special blocks. Some of the blocks need a little help in resizing as they are not all the same size ,and few will need to be fixed .. but on the whole I’m going to leave them as they are.

Little help needed here.
And my quilt that is a very slow work in progress is stuffed in a corner.
It brights the corner though while waiting to be finished.

I’m sure by now y’all have check out the others lovely quilts in progress but just in case someone hasn’t …here’s the list .🙂

April 19 … Hand quilt along update…

Life here on the farm is in full swing..weed pulling , mulching, weed whacking,and mowing. Need to butcher some drakes yet,as I have too many ,they will hurt my little hen ducks if I don’t get at it soon. …. having said all that … just to tell you that I didn’t get much done on my old quilt. 😃 The poor old dear has sat in the corner for two weeks without even been picked up once.

Here’s where I was last round …

I finished what was in the hoop ,and maybe a little more. Didn’t come close to getting to the other end.🤷🏻‍♀️
That’s it for me this round. Hopefully I can work on quilting again in the evenings some. Time will tell.😀

Here’s a peek at the big flowerbed almost finished..

March 28…Hand quilt along update….

I have a new kind of daffodil this spring, isn’t she a beauty!🥰

My youngest daughter Skylie.

Time for the update,now that I got that MomMom bragging done.😁

Last time I was taking the quilt out of the frame for lap quilting. I was able to work on it more often this time around in the evenings ,and keeping Leona company at the same time. The green star is where I was and the hoop of course is where I am now.

If I do a row every three weeks.. In nine weeks I could finish. A very nice goal that I will try for but no promises for spring ,summer work have begun in full swing!

March 7….Hand quilt along update

Spring is starting to arrive here in the south..

It is good to see the spring flowers starting to bloom.

I didn’t get very far on hand quilting this time. Leona’s health issues have taken a step backward making her care more time consuming. Her voice is very soft making it hard for me to hear her when she is in need when I am back in the sewing room. So I took the quilt that I was working on out of the frame, and prepared it for the lap hoop. I finished the end part …

This brings me to the half way mark.

Here are some photos of the quilt that are finished.

And back
That’s it for me this round,please take a look at what the others have accomplished .

Feb. 14 … Hand quilt along update

On July 17, 2018 ,I posted about a dirty box of scraps that I bought off of eBay. Here’s a photo of the scraps….

The back
It is a very soft quilt that takes me back to the many years ago when I visited Grandma ,staying over night . If was so exciting to crawl under her quilts .

I was going to mark another little top but decided not too ,for this summer is going to be very busy. I will just work on the one in the frame for it will soon be warm enough in that room to work again.

So until next update … happy stitching… keep warm or dry.❤️

Jan.25… Hand quilt along update

I’m a day late on the update,but I’m not feeling to guilty.🤓 I had company…oh it was wonderful! My brother and his wife,nephew and his wife stopped in to visit. I haven’t seen my brother for a year. It was so good to give them all a hug again!! We have been in contact with each other throughout this virus mess but nothing is like sitting down in a chair and visiting in my living room.

Now for the update…

It has been chilly here these last few weeks ,leaving my sewing room tooooo cold to work in. That room is the coldest in winter and the coolest in summer which is nice for summer time.

So I pulled out this top to work on some more in the warm … family room where the wood stove is.😃

The top red mark shows where I started again, the bottom where I am right now. Close to a finish..👏👏

Nov. 22 …hand quilt along update …

It’s hard to believe that the holidays are rolling around again. Our oldest son is coming home for a week ,it will be so fun catching up . He lives up north a good 13 hrs away ..so when he gets time off work to come home it’s always a special time. The youngest son will also be here.👏👏

I haven’t quilted as much again these last three week. I have been picking up pecans. They are bountiful this year.

The last few years a pecan company was picking them up for us ,this year however the company isn’t taking them. So I’m picking up for the the girls, and myself… my freezer is empty of pecans no longer.

Update… here’s where I was last round doing a row then rolling…

Now where the yellow marker mark is ,is what I have finished on the roll. A close up…

Until next time

Nov.1..Hand quilt along update..

A prayer request for Leona .. she’s not been feeling well for about a week.. I can’t seem to put my finger on what is wrong.. so if she’s not feeling better in a few days than to the Docs we go…. which always stresses her out.

Now for the update. I was able to work on the old quilt a little more this week,and to sew on a quilt top.

Here is where I was last time. Working at the right end of the quilt.

I was able to finish the row . I have it rolled and ready to start back,working from left to right .
The finished part is from the bottom of the quilt roll to the top of the white printed blocks.

The top that I’ve been working on is the star quilt using 50 through 70’s fabric scraps .

I’m using all scraps no yardage except for the red paisley border. I’m happy to have them scraps into a quilt top instead of a drawer!

Oct.11…Hand quilt along update

Even though the sewing machine was invented in 1790, hand-quilting was still more popular for the next 100 years.

Weather is very pleasant here,for which I’m thankful for July through the middle of September arent my favorite months.

I didn’t work on my quilt as much as last time .. honestly I always have hopes of doing more than before … often that doesn’t happen. One thing nice about quilting it waits very patiently.

Here’s where I left off last time…

Just a little on the end to finish then ready to roll

It’s rolled and just an bit worked on.

I also did up a stack of papers to work on my many scraps again this fall and winter.
The log cabin block uses up lots of scraps,and in the best way.. at least I think so.😀

I have two boxes full of scraps that I will be working on.

That’s it for me. Happy quilting until next time.
