My PHD in 2022 March Update

Gail from Quilting Gail PHD Report is hosting the PHD in 2022 again. I really enjoy keeping track of things and seeing if I can get 12 of my UFOs finished up.

I can claim a finish:

A travel bag for the final PQ challenge.

While I was at the studio I finished a quilt on the longarm:

One of my new quilter’s in my Guild made this for her granddaughter. I wanted the quilting to be understated so just did straight line quilting in a neutral grey Essentials thread. She has now finished the binding and will have the pleasure of delivering it to the little this week.

I also did a repair job (took the whole quilt apart, repaired popped seams, replaced the batting, backing and binding and then duplicated the embroidery I had to remove to get the quilt apart) and it is now being enjoyed by a son who treasures the quilt his Mom made for him 40+ years ago. I didn’t get pictures because I wasn’t quite functioning. I do see the recipient several times a week as he is a golfer and he never hesitates to thank me again.

So here’s where I’m at with the great tracker Gail created:

I did finish another project, but can’t show it yet. 😉

Thank you for reading my post and thank you Gail for the great linky that keeps me on track.. 😉 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Hi Carol! So nice to see an update from you. Wow, that repair job sounds like it was a HUGE project. I’ll bet your friend is beyond thrilled with the work you put into it. Isn’t it nice thinking of that 40-year-old quilt still be used and loved? I hope you are doing well and taking care. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Hi Roseanne. The repair meant unstitching the whole quilt. The backing and batting were rotten. The seams were popping on some of the blocks and it had embroidered patches (through all 3 layers) where it had been patched before. It was a big job but so worth it when I saw his face. It’s just like his Mom was hugging him. As for me, it’s one day at a time and some days are better than others. Thank you for your sweet comment.

  2. Those feel like huge accomplishments; and wonderful work too. I love your PQ travel bag, the quilting on the new quilter’s quilt and the repair work must have been spectacular. I love when old quilts can be fixed and used. Such heartwarming work this week…
