Quiltville MQ 3rd Clue

Well, I don't have any of the steps so far completed.  However, I am working on it.   As Bonnie has said, if you get steps completed to do enough of them to be able to start putting it  together at result time,  So I can always go back and finish each step.  I am not a fast sewer and not in a race.  So today I am posting some of the 4 patches.  Shown here are 40 of them.  I do have more to complete 120, but have to put each half together.

Bonnie Hunter's Mystery

I am getting a slow start.  I do have some of step 1 and 2 done.  I am using some leftover 4 1/2 inch strips from another project for step 2.

Nearing Goal

I am nearing my completed quilted quilt goal I made for myself after Christmas.  I have 4 quilts finished and quilted.  I need to do 1 more in order to complete my goal for the year.  And that one is nearly done.  Shown here are the 4 I have completed.
The last 2 pictures is the Bonnie Hunter mystery and very happy to have it done. It was given to my youngest son and his wife.  That was one big quilt and heavy.  One more to go to meet my goal for this year.

I found my signature house quilt and it dates back to 1996. It is signed by Guild members at that time. I think I will quilt it so I can say "I got er' done.

Machine Embroidery Quilt

I have finished another project.  This time it is my Molly Mine machine embroidery.  I did the embroidery at my small group retreat a couple of years ago.  It was a lot of fun to do as we swapped fabrics and thread. I stay so far behind in finishing my projects, so I am very happy to have this done.

I have my challenge fabric done in a quilt.  The small quilt group I belong to does a fat quarter fabric challenge and  we  try to come up with something we make out of it for the next time we have a retreat. We meet for a retreat twice a year. Our retreat this time is the first week in August.  I finished my challenge last night.  The fabric was Christmas red with round peppermint candy on it.  One person brings a fat quarter for each person to make something for the next retreat.  We have six ladies in our  small group and we take turns on who brings the  challenge fabric.  So here is what I came up with,

July 4th Project

Here is my July 4th project, but I still have to quilt it.

Friday, July 3, 2015


My goodness, it has been awhile since I last posted.  But, with a tornado hitting our community of Bridgecreek, OK and May being so wet with flooding rains, life just got really busy. As for us we are just fine, however, when I drive through  our community it really breaks my heart to see homes gone.  It has been over a month now and debris is not being picked up along the roadsides.  The most  thankful part is no one was killed.
Yesterday I took the Grand Illusion to my local quilt shop to be quilted.  It was just too large for me to do on my domestic machine.  Right now I am finishing up a Patriotic table topper. 
Trying to get it done for tomorrow.  After that, I need to quilt my retreat fabric challenge due the 1st week of August.  I am also doing Bonnie Hunter's leader ender challenge with the tumbler block.  I am going to do it in two colors only.  I have the 3 inch accuquilt tumbler die.  That's about it for now.  Happy July 4th and be safe.
