Sept.25(26)…. Hand quilt along update…

Oh dear.. once again I’m late.🫣 I’m having a time trying to keep up with life, it seems everything is happening the last two weeks of September.

We just got back from PA , grilling brisket for a friend’s wedding of 250 folks, now this weekend ,hubby has a niece getting married on Friday and I have a nephew on Saturday both being in MD ,which is nice for we can take in both weddings as they will only be about 20 miles apart.it just means another 11 hr trip.

I did get some quilting done not as much as I would have liked but temps went back up to 100* again for a few days,guess it is giving us a last fling of summer. Quilting under a quilt in that kind of weather is sweaty business.😀

However ,I have only have eight more blocks to do along with the borders.

Four more just like these showing on the bottom side of hoop.
One of the corners finished.

I’m over the half way point,of that I’m so tickled about!👏🙂

Now off to try and catch up with the others updates.

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!

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.🥰
