2019 UFO List

I’ve been doing a bit of sewing and piecing to get used to my new machine.  I’m more and more impressed with it.  In between bits of sewing I have unpacked every box from my sewing room.  Some of them had to be repackaged and put in the storage room due to my space limitations.Continue reading “2019 UFO List”

2018 Q3 Finish Along

I am linking up with Leanne at She Can Quilt for the Q3  Finish Along; being very optimistic that the move will be done this weekend after I teach my group at the Guild on Saturday.  I’m being optimistic because I have reached the point where I NEED time with fabric and machines! My listContinue reading “2018 Q3 Finish Along”

Happy Happy Day

Seams to be Sewn. Moving day is October 15th for the move to our temporary home.  Happy Birthday to me! I will be getting the keys next week and have already measured and sorted what goes where.  I was a bit concerned that the light might not be adequate but today something wonderful happened!  IContinue reading “Happy Happy Day”

Funny how things change!

Yesterday was DH’s regular weekly doctor’s appointment in Nelson, BC.  Stopped to get the groceries on my list and new SIM cards for our phones.  Then I had to haul butt to the Golf course.  We met Pat and signed a rental agreement.  So it is now decided.  After living in a 3700 square footContinue reading “Funny how things change!”

Lonestar Update

This quilt is the Lonestar which has so much history attached to it.  It was picked apart when a grandson spilt his grape juice on it.  Then my machine crashed.  Then I had to modify my design several times because I just didn’t’ have enough of the fabric to redo the original which was aContinue reading “Lonestar Update”

Continued progress on Lonestar

Well I’m happy to say that this treasure is finally progressing along.  I had issues with machines breaking down and needing to go to Allan for some much needed repairs and a service while he had possession of them.  Can you believe all 3 machines went down one after the other or at the sameContinue reading “Continued progress on Lonestar”

Night Eyes from Sewn Up

I am so in love with this pattern!  It is great for beginners and a quick pattern for charity quilts.  As soon as I got the pattern, I whipped up the throw size to familiarize myself with the pattern.  Our local community golf course is not very secure right now, so I volunteered to doContinue reading “Night Eyes from Sewn Up”

Throw made from TeresaDownUnder’s Night Eyes Pattern

This is the first quick test of Teresa’s pattern. I had volunteered to test patterns for her and had to try the throw before I pulled fabric from my stash to do the queen sized quilt she needed me to do.  Once I had pulled the fabrics from my scrap bin and from my stashContinue reading “Throw made from TeresaDownUnder’s Night Eyes Pattern”

Charlotte’s pick

When my granddaughter, Charlotte was 3, her Daddy and Mommy discovered Charley was going to have a sibling.  Our Miss Charlotte decided she needed Nana to make her a quilt for her big girl bed in their new house.  With her Mom’s help, she found a pattern she liked and then picked her fabrics out.Continue reading “Charlotte’s pick”

Another one done!

Finally one for me to keep!  I have been hoarding this fabric ever since Kathleen bought some and showed it to me.  I had to make the trip to Kathy’s Quilt Shop in Prince George, BC to get the teal and brown floral, but then lucked out and found the extra fabrics to coordinate with theContinue reading “Another one done!”
