December OMG

I am repeating Octobers/Novembers goal.  Still helping my daughter deal with the fallout of her accident in October.  Her new to her car has only been in her possession 3 days since buying it on 11/10. I'll tell that story another day.

I have been sewing quilt tops just haven't been quilting any.  Maybe I should call myself a flimsier rather than a quilter.  A flimsy is a term I learned referring to an unquilted quilt.  Some call themselves toppers.  Regardless I need to breakthrough whatever log jam that is keeping me from quilting things.

Again I present to you my Raising Cane by Dorothy Young.   Just needs quilting.

Friendship Star QOV


I always run across great ideas for quilts but rarely make them.  Coincidentally I ran across just such an idea then was asked to make a Quilt of Valor to honor the memory of the a local quilt store customer that passed unexpectedly.

I found the link here. http://scrapboxquilts.blogspot.com/2016/10/rsc16-yellow-finishes.html?m=1 Then I emailed back and forth with the designer for her assembly instructions.  I made it much harder but don't care for flip and stitch corners.



Thanks Kat!

Hugs,

FAL 2016 Q4

Nicky of Mrs Sew & Sow had me laughing. I read her proposed list of finishes and thought she had quite some list. I had to read back to realize she was listing all her projects. I commented on her post and a brief email exchange ensued. Basically she told me that if she listed some of her projects she wanted to work on the others. That's what happens to me!

So inspired by Nicky my list is as follows.

- 4 Strip Stacks. 2 are pink and green and 2 are primary colors. All need quilting



- baby BQ. Needs quilting

- blue and white 4 patch. Needs binding



- Raising Cane. Needs quilting



- Razzle Dazzle. Needs quilting



- matchstick Marimba. Needs quilting



- Garden Party. Needs borders



- Wanderlust. Piecing

- Pfefferneuse. Might add borders but needs quilting 



- Grand Illusion. Needs quilting



- 2 Orca Bay. Need quilting 



- Dizzy. Possible border but needs quilting

- Avignon Picnic. Needs quilting



- 2 30s print samplers. Need quilting

- Christmas packages. Needs quilting

- Bloomers. Needs quilting

- Hugs and Kisses. Needs quilting

- Lazy Sunday. Needs quilting

- Stepping Stones. Needs quilting

- 30s Dog Prints. Needs quilting

- Happy Block Jean quilt

- Row by Row quilt. Reconstruct

- Garage Sale top. Needs quilting

- Antique top. Needs quilting

Design Wall Monday 10/10/2016

I got to attend the American Sewing Guild retreat in Witchita Falls over the weekend.  I was very productive.

- I assembled the blocks for my Razzle Dazzle quilt by Bonnie Hunter into a top.



- I cut two backings for flimsies I plan to quilt soon
- I buried threads in a quilt top I recently quilted
- I made the bag portion for two FQ bags I am making
- I cut the neck opening of a shirt I made from a class I took at last years retreat.  I made mine reversible




- I auditioned borders for a quilt top although I didn't bring it but had the leftovers from making it

- I did some hand work on a quilt that has a pieces birder and I've decided to add to it

I think that's it.  I'm happy!

One Monthly Goal for October

I have skipped this a few months.  Too much pressure.  My goal this month is my Raising Cane.  I am not sure how old this top is but all it needs is quilting.  I have it loaded on my machine ready to go.  When I first load quilts I usually have an idea of how I want to quilt it.  The same is true for this one but the ideas are evolving.  I'll show you once its quilted.
