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

- Tumbler. Needs quilting

- Freeze Frame. Needs quilting.

- Pink and Green 4 patch. Needs quilting

- Pink Poppy BQ. Needs quilting

- Stepping Up. Needs quilting

- Awareness. Needs quilting

Posting by Email

My friend Krista over at Kristaquilts.blogspot.com told me that blogger allowed you to post to blogger via email. If you go to the design option then settings and click on email the options are all there.

Let's see how this works.

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.

4-Patch On Point

I got this little quilt done and off the frame.  I had one thread break but luckily retreading fixed the issue as in no more breaks.  I was surprised that I needed more than one bobbin to quilt this.  In fact I kick myself because I only partially filled the next bobbin and ran out again with just 3 motifs left to quilt.

It measures about 38x58.  The most expensive part of this quilt was the batting.  The backing was a $2 find at our guild garage sale.  The four patches were from a 50 cent scrap bag from a retreat garage sale.  The blue was a $1 a yard find at Walmart and the thread was free from Freecycle.  How's that for quilting on a budget?

This will be bound with the same blue used in the top.

Ricci's Quilt

If you go back to my June OMG post here you can read about this quilt.

I took this from a coworker who talked so lovingly about his quilt and repaired it.  It had been tied.  I removed the ties, repaired, added new batting and backing.  Quilted and bound it.  He's seen it on Facebook and seems happy.  I'm going to wash and dry it to make sure there are no issues with it.

Razzle Dazzle Block Two

I have all the sub units made for the 20 alternate blocks.  I assembled the first block to see how things would go together.

Here it is with one of the first blocks I made.

I now have the 20 pinwheel centers sewn and am sewing the flying geese to those first.  I should be able to get these together pretty quickly.
