Jan. 29, Hand quilt along update…

It’s time again to show our quilty treasures.🙂

So glad Kathy came up with this hand quilting blog updates,I so enjoy seeing each ones tastes in color and pattern choices. Keep it up blogging friends.😊

I had to go into storage to find my next project,I went though some tubs looking for a small quilt to work on,as this camper really isn’t meant to be doing queen size quilts.

I came across this little treasure,blocks that were hand sewn by hubby’s great grand mother.

I was going to straighten some of the wonky blocks but hubby said he wanted it just as it was….So it is just as it is.😀

I also found the old flour sack fabric that I had hoarded away that was from my grandma. It has some staining on it,I’m hoping that I can get it out with a little peroxide and sunshine. I want to keep the blue lines in it so I’ll have to be careful.

A simple x in each block will be quilted in this oldie,as I think it will match the quilts era.

Second project that I’m working on,love these little girls.🥰 this painting is from a photo that my daughter took.

After a little snooze here I’m look in to see what’s happening in your quilting world.🙂

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.
