Quilting This Week

Last Saturday was Quilts of Valor’s National Sew Day.  I sewed together this quilt that has been stuck on my design wall since last May. I got the first block done for my Christmas Hedgehog quilt. I have the fabric […]

So after my husband decided to stay in the land of the living, I turned my focus to an event that we had been preparing for. There is a small town festival near here that has been turned into a […]

My quilting this week involves binding. Lots of binding. We have a Quilts of Valor presentation this weekend and we are putting finishing touches on quilts. We had a sewing day this weekend to get a lot done. My machine […]

My quilting this week has been of the boring but necessary type. I made a back for a donated top. I’m working on quilting my anchor quilt. I just decided that I need to pull out the entire center section […]

Quilting Wednesday

I got two rows finished and started sewing them together. I’m still trying to get the hang of working with the bulk of the quilt. I was gripping it too tight when I started and ended up straining some muscles […]

I feel like all I’ve done is work on quilts this week! I finished 2 flowers this week. I’ve only got 6 left before I start putting my top together! I had a big, busy Quilts of Valor week! On […]

The only thing I worked on this week was some hexagons. I’m still excited to be using some of the next batch of fabrics for my Hexy MF quilt.  I’ve been slowly sewing up the first batch I cut a […]

Quilting Wednesday

I’m really enjoying this St. Louis 16 patch block. It is totally mindless piecing. It is made to be cut from fat quarters so there is minimal cutting too. I don’t like cutting. I never, ever use fat quarters because […]

I finished up Swoon block number 3. I was asked by a person who is having a Quilts of Valor display for Veteran’s Day if I had a banner. I said, “Yeah, no problem, I’ll get that to you.” Translation […]

I’ve gone back to an old UFO. I need nine 24 inch carpenter’s star blocks for the quilt I have in mind. This will be number 3. I’ve had a HUGE Quilts of Valor week. Last week I presented a […]

QOV Presentation

On Sunday I drove to Dayton to do a talk to a quilt guild about Quilts of Valor. There were two people there whose family members had had quilts made for them. They talked about what it meant for them […]
