It’s Tuesday, we are still sewing!

leave a comment »

Aren’t girlfriends great?  I’m still quilting at Judy’s house most weeks. We occasionally travel to other locations, but home base is with Judy and her husband,Mike, who is our valet.

Nancy finished the top to a quilt called the splendid sampler. Each week two six-inch blocks were published. There were lots of blocks, I think about 100.  This is Nancy’s very happy version:IMG_0008  I am enjoying Watching Nancy, Claudia and Debbie making the pretty little blocks.

Claudia made this pretty table runner, and Pat did the gorgeous quilting.IMG_0010I worked on one of my last Dear Jane blocks. I’m determined to have the top finished by our next unfinished object deadline in October.

Did you know that project runway started last week?  Actually, it was Tim introducing the designers. It is going to be a crazy, wacky edition!

When friends give you scraps

This quilt top started Mom Mom and my obsession with scrap quilts. Claudia (Birdies Mom) and Nancy taught a workshop for this design. I missed Dad cutting fabric for Mom for this quilt. Only Mom, or my friend Judy,would make a king size quilt out of 6 inch blocks.0811161907a

Scraps are like gold to quilters. Yes, we love to take large pieces of fabric, cut them into small pieces, then sew them back into big pieces. Its even better to take the leftover pieces and sew them together.

I’mThankful

leave a comment »

A few years ago, you wrote a daily entry for a month about things you which you were thankful. That might be a good way for me to resurrect our blog.  In addition, I read an article that reported that writing about things that made you happy increased your happiness. (Who would have guessed?)

So today I’m thankful that my daughter started a blog that allowed me to write happy things.

U(n) F(inished) O(bject)Challenge

leave a comment »

My quilting group that meets Tuesdays at Judy’s house is doing a ufo challenge this year.We are choosing 6 items we want to complete this year.  Every two months we reveal a complete ufo. To make it exciting, we are each putting 12 dollars into a pot.  Each time we comlete a project we receive one dollar back. At the end of the year we will draw for the remaining money in the pot.

Here are my projects:

I am happy to be so encouraged to complete some well “aged projects” that I still really like.
