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!

Oct.24….Hand quilt along update…

I’m doing a finish dance!💃💃👏👏💃💃🥵… getting to old for all that!

Here’s the old girl all finished ,washed with that soft bubble quilting that old quilts get.

Sure wish the one who put the top together could see it….

Here’s a little of the back quilting..

Now for the next quilt in the hoop ,is one that I’ve been pushing back into the unfinished pile. Kathy has got me excited to do it though with hers showing off so beautiful.

I’ll not take a whole picture of it , I’ll just let you see it as it’s being quilted. It’s queen size so it will be perfect to curl up under though the cool winter days.

I’m working on the little star like arms, there are three done along with the centerpiece

That’s it for me this round!

Oct.3 … Hand quilt along update….

I was hoping to finish this quilt by this update … oh well hopefully next update.😁 here is how much I need to do yet along with the binding.

I’m anxious to see it finished .. washed and dried . I have a feeling she’s going to be a beautiful old piece of art…. Wish the maker that put the top together could see her.

I have several projects in line that need to be finished….not sure which one I will do yet.…

I finished the painting for my wall. LouAnn helped me with the side frames. She has lovely hand writing.

A quick update on little Felix.. there’s a good chance he will be able to go home in two weeks!

Isn’t he a cutie!❤️

A heartfelt thank you for all your prayers and thoughts for him!!

Sept.12… Hand quilt along update

I did a little quilting this time around!👏🙂 I’ll try to make sense out of what I’ve done as I did work in a straight row like I was suppose too .

The blue is what I’ve quilted this around.

I have the five blocks to finish and then around them

Update on Little Felix, he had his transplant this week. He is still in the rough stage with breathing hard a concern. This is the picture his momma sent to us.

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.❤️
