Monday Making

I am attempting to use UP a LOT of four patches
and some triangles 
as a I piece together a ZIG ZAG.

My inspiraration quilts are HERE and HERE.
I am using four patches, not nine patches.....
And....
I think they're bigger.  
:)
That's the great thing about quilting!!

Inspire.
Sew.
Create.
Make it your OWN!

Side note:
The four patches are made with 2 1/2" squares.
After sewing LOTS of four patches.....
That DRAWER is STILL FULL of 2 1/2" squares!!!

I'm going to need to make a LOT of quilts
if I ever want to use them up!!!
What are YOU making this week???

Monday Making

I have been trying the past few years to use ONLY my stash.
I have been successful MOST of the time.
**Wink wink**

This little baby quilt is from my flannel bucket.
Flannel quilts are soft.
They are cuddly
and they are CUTE.
:)

As you can tell.....
I didn't have quite enough of the same fabrics to make this one
matchy matchy.
But I like it all the same!

Maybe I like it MORE!!!


Here is the produce harvested yesterday.
My husband's garden continues to keep me busy in the kitchen.

I've enjoyed the green beans this year.
I steam the beans.....
make a DIP using mayo and a little soy sauce.
We dip them in the sauce and eat them like french fries.

YUM!!!

Monday Making

Perler beads.
That's what I've been up to.
Helping my youngest FIND her craft.
:)

She has some special needs
and I wondered if she'd ever hit on something that
she really enjoyed doing
and something that she was capable of doing.

We found it
and I'm so happy!

Monday Making

This week I will be doing a lot of this....
and watching the kids play card games
at the camp site.

I'll try and get some exercise between
these lazy peaceful activities.
LOL.

I'll also be hand quilting.
Isn't the backing I found at the thrift store wonderful?

It is a vintage cotton that I KNEW would come in handy someday.

Someday is HERE.
:)

Monday Making

This week I hope to be hand quilting
a very BLUE quilt.
I'm not at liberty to show the whole quilt yet....
but this little peek shows I have my work cut out for me!


 I will also be eating healthy.
What would you make with these ingredients?

I typically add the vegetable to WHATEVER I'm making.
I made a stir fry with some leftover chicken and pasta with these.

The cucumber appears at the table EVERY night in a little dish.
Nothing fancy. 
Sliced or stick shaped.
It's all GOOD.
:)

Link up and share about YOU're making this week.

Hope you're all enjoying the summer!

**Blogger news**

Some of you quilters know we've had trouble 
COMMUNICATING in the last month of so!!!
Comments have not been making it to our emails so that we can reply.

Barb has a post HERE about how you can FIX that situation.
THANK you Barb!!!!

Monday Making

All of you quilters know....
The BEST thing about quilting
is GIVING them away!!!

It's a connection with PEOPLE
that I just LOVE!

It's a way to CELEBRATE 
and ENCOURAGE milestones and achievements!

These are 3 of the graduates that received quilts this year.

I SO enjoy making the quilts
and sharing some quilty LOVE with these 
AMAZING young adults!



It's time for the weekly LINK UP!

Monday Making

My Monday Making post is a bit early this week.
I have the time...
so I thought I'd post now, rather than later!
:)
The linky will be open until Wednesday,
if you want to link up and share what YOU've been making.

This eyeglass case was an easy little project.

A friend requested one when she saw mine
and believe it or NOT...I had the same scraps in my bin!

TWO years LATER!!  LOL!

I didn't have to wonder which colors to use, since I knew
she'd seen mine and it appealed to her.

I gave it to her on Thursday not knowing that
she'd had a really hard morning that day.

Isn't it GREAT to give a little quilt LOVE
and find it's the perfect timing too???

I also made a set of little place mats for ME this week.

They're actually going to be used by the kids.
Even cold cereal gets to look pretty!!

Here's another peek into my week.
Yes...It was a busy one.

I thought I'd be sewing these together...
but after making a lot of blocks, I really didn't want to make any more.
(lazy? kind of)
I also knew that there are a LOT of seams to match up!
What if????
I add sashing.
Scrappy sashing??

I'll let it percolate a bit.....
Gives me something happy to THINK about.

One great thing about quilting is the 
happy things we can ponder.


Today we're harvesting.
I'll need to make some deliveries since we can't eat it all.

Not sure what the week ahead holds.
But I DO know....
I'll be stitching!

And cooking something GREEN.
