Upcoming Retreat Fabric Challenge done

I finished another quilt over last weekend. I rent the longarm at Beth's Quilt Shop in Blanchard. I am not experienced on the longarm, so I did a meandering pattern.

What to do now????

25 small scrappy diamonds sewn together. Trying to figure out where to go from here. Paper foundation is still on the back, explains why edges are curled.     SUPERQUILTER

Apple Slices Done

The apple slices I mentioned in the previous post are now done.  I almost gave up a couple of times as they took what seemed like forever.  I am glad I kept going as I think they will make an interesting border. There are 36 apple slices.  They are paper pieced, but I have a good friend who digitized them for the embroidery machine.  Thank you "good friend". Now on to finish the rest of the quilt.

Retreat Fabric Challenge Time

The August retreat is coming up pretty quick so I decided I better get busy. The challenge fabric is the small blue flowers.  The pattern is called "Blue on White" and it is found in Fons and Porter's Easy Quilts Summer 2014 issue.  Now that the top is finished, the next step is to quilt it.  I will post again when I finish the quilting phase.  Until then happy quilting.

Time to Clean Sewing Room

I decided to take time to clean the sewing room.  I still need to to organize under the ironing board. You can see Joy my Boxer guarding my current project on the floor.  She would have preferred laying on it, but I would not let her.

A Quilt Done


As I have posted previously I am new to longarm quilting.  Last weekend I rented the longarm at my local quilt shop Beth's.  This quilt is 83 x 83. I am happy to have it done and I hope to get better at the longarm.  I will try to get another quilt top quilted next month ( I have a lot of them to do).  But, in the mean time I will work on UFO's.


I went to a garage sale yesterday and got a real bargain.  Heard about it through word of mouth.  A lady from another State was closing her quilt shop.  I bought 6 different fabrics for $3 a yard (good quality quilt fabric).  I could not resist and knowing I love and collect fabric I bought 4 yards of each. I bought plenty of yardage as I don't know what I will make with it yet.  Here's my bargain:

Well that's about it for now.  I'm off to either work on a UFO  or start something new.  In the mean time I hope all quilter's have fun with their projects.

First Longarm Try

I took a longarm class at my local quilt shop.  I now have a binding on it.  I completed this quilt with my 2 hour practice time for taking the class.  I call this quilt "Santa Fe Logs", I think because of the colors.   Next Saturday I have scheduled time to start quilting another quilt top at Beth's Quilt Shop. Just trying to decided which of my many quilt tops I want to do.
Today I am piecing a quilt called "Apple Harvest". I have also posted a picture of our Princess Gracie who will be 9 months this month.  She is truly the apple of my eye.

Keeping Busy

I am still here and enjoy reading other blogs.  I stay busy babysitting about 3 days a week with my beautiful Granddaughter, Gracie.  She is almost 8 months now and everyday she changes.  She does the Army crawl on moves forward and backwards, plus going in circles. I think she will be walking before accomplishing the crawl.  Shown here is her pushup trying so very hard to stand up. We play patty cake and learning where our nose is. 



 Gracie and I did a selfie.  LOL

 One of the projects I did was to make a bag.  It was for a retreat the beginning of March and we had challenge fabric which is the pink/black,  It is always fun to see what others have done with the challenge fabric

I finally broke and bought the AccuQuilt. I was nervous about buying it because of the cost.   However, my scraps have become overwhelming and with the AccuQuilt maybe I can get a handle on the scraps and be more organized.  I emptied one tote bag of scraps since last night and I am feeling good. Little by little I think I can do this and make more room  for yardage (LOL).

I took a longarm class in January and in March I finally got around to do my free 2 hour practice time.  I was able to get a lap top quilted.  Now for the label and binding. Right now I am trying to decide on the fabric for the binding.  I will take a picture when it is done.  I made the top from scraps.

That's a little catch up on what I have been up to.  Keep on quilting and enjoy all the days you can.
