I love this #vernafabric by #katespain and I love the pattern by #corianderquilts , but I made a major mistake on about 1/3 of the blocks. I am so mad at myself. I hope I remember this and learn from it. 😩🙁🤪
This mess is 5 completed quilt tops, the squares for the 6th quilt, and strips for all of the needed binding. I started just over 3 days ago. A friend wants 6 quilts for the residents of her mom’s care home, and there is no way I could say no. I have all the work charted out so I know what needs to be done each day by Christmas. I’m ahead of schedule so far! I can do this. Right? 😬 #katespain#bonnieandcamille#batiks#mybackandarmhurtalready
I have a total of 3 painful injuries that are hampering my binding and sewing ( I wiped up most of the blood) (gashes along with tendinitis)😩 I’m really glad I found my #bloclocruler though. I might give up and go make risotto.
Look!! @sew_stephanie sent me this wonderful mini! I love it so much. We met here on IG a few years ago, and recognized that we are kindred spirits. These bright scissors will bring happiness every day. Thank you so much, Stephanie! Sorry for the tragic lighting...rain is coming soon!
I made a mini quilt with my leftover wool from #retrofarmhousewoolbom by @figtreeandco . We received plenty of this pretty wool and I enjoyed the appliqué so much I had to do more. Swipe for closeup. I made up the design and named it Colorforms, because it reminds me of my favorite childhood toy, #colorformsbrand
This is the backing for the #bluerkblocks quilt I am assembling. I was very apprehensive about matching the pattern, but it had to be done. I did it! @craftycop you have no idea how pleased I am. Thank you for sending this backing so I was forced to try a new skill.
When one of my favorite people in the world breaks her hip, I sew. Obviously she needed a throw quilt to help her heal. Fortunately I had a #laconnerfabric layer cake waiting for her. The colors and prints are perfect for my friend. @fatquartershop rushed the border and binding fabric to me, so it only took 5 days from start to finish. I am usually very slow, so I'm very pleased!
Yay!! My box of #bluerkblocks arrived from @craftycop ! I'm going to piece the top, quilt it on a Longarm machine at @meissnersewingandvacuum , and hand bind the finished quilt. My dad worked his way up the ranks in the Sheriff's department for 30+ years. I was fortunate that he was never seriously hurt on the job. My appreciation and gratitude will be sewn into the quilt with every stitch. I'm honored to be given this opportunity. Thank you, Jessica!
I'm assembling my #iheartbandcsamplerbee#stingingstitchers and #darlingdozen blocks FINALLY!! I have 25 blocks for the top, and 10 blocks for the back. It's making me teary, I think because I didn't realize how much sewing reminds me of my mom. She died 3 weeks ago and it's hard. She made me a Winnie The Pooh when I was little and I loved it so much. Maybe that's why I learned to sew. I don't know. It's hard. It's sad.
