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!

What are YOU making this week??

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.

What are YOU making this week??

Monday Making

I worked a bit on this UFO this past week
and HOPE to add some more blocks THIS week.

The pattern came from block lotto a while ago.
I added an alternate color way using white cornerstones.
I love ALL that color!
It's been fun digging around here for more fabric choices.

What are YOU making this week??
Link up and share your post.

I am findng that more and more comments do NOT make it to my email.
Anyone else have this problem?
It makes it hard to reply to your sweet comments.

Monday Making

This quilt was NOT made by me.
It was pieced together and then donated to my local quilt guild.
It seems there are quite a few quilters who DON'T like to quilt.

My goal is to quilt ONE of these pretty charity quilts
EACH month.
I don't usually post about these quilts...but I probably should!

My local guild packs them up with backing fabric
AND the binding.
They are ALL ready to GO!!

I enjoy quilting these lovely quilts.
There is NO STRESS involved!
They are the perfect place to practice machine quilting!

What are YOU making this week??
