Monday Making

It's time to share about what YOU're making this week!!

I'm sure you're in the MIDDLE of something!
Or, if you're like me.....
You're in the middle of many SOMETHINGS!!!

I'm still plugging away at my "H" quilt.
My station is all set up next to the sewing machine.

I finally got SMART and set the small pieces in a plastic bin TOP,
so that I could move it out of the way when needed.
This is a LONG project folks!!!

One little 3 1/2" "H" at a time.

I also pulled out my orphan block box today
and think I might try to get these together
for a charity quilt.

Maybe some cornerstones and sashing???
Maybe a border of some kind to pull it together???

Those are the quilty questions that keep my mind buzzing!!!

I shared a picture of this little sweater Friday.

Finished and GIVEN away already!!

Grandma's happy.

Link up and share about your creative plans for the week ahead!!!

Friday Finish

I have a small finish this week!
Hooray for finishes!
 I used  THIS pattern.  Simple and sweet.
I made the largest size (5)
and hope it fits my granddaughter someday!

I so loved this yarn I found recently...
I HAD to find something to make with it!!

This here is my ongoing sewing project.
A few minutes here...
a few minutes there...

Someday ALL those 3 1/2" blocks will be a QUILT!!
The question is...
HOW BIG will it BE???

Monday Making

My "H" quilt is growing!.....

The little pieces are all Sprawled out on my sewing table...
and I sew a couple of blocks together as time allows.

The little "H"s don't take long at all!

At the rate I'm going it will be a very long time
before there is a QUILT!

This past week there was pretty much NO sewing time.

I was camping and took my loom along.
When camping...
I want to be OUTSIDE!

The leftover t-shirt strips
made a very PRETTY rug!

What are YOU making this week???

Monday Making

I am so happy to have a little finish.
I'm also sad.
I really enjoyed the time I spent adding EACH line of color!

I have a little stash of  yarns.
Seems I can't say "NO" When I see balls of pretty color
at the thrift store!
I need to USE THEM UP!!

This little crochet blanket will be given to a baby boy!
What are YOU making?

Monday Making

I've been keeping busy with little tiny pieces!

Each "H" contains
Three 1 1/2" squares
Two 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" rectangles.

This quilt I lovingly call....
Lots of ugly fabric goes into making
a TRULY scrappy quilt!!

What are YOU making??

Friday Finish

 Just a little finish for a friend.

That little machine embroidered house was a gift
and it adds SO much to these little potholders!

I try to USE up all the scraps over here....
but little projects like this don't help me at ALL with THAT dream.

At least there are a LOT of scraps to CHOOSE from!!

Potholders are 9"x 9"
and are made using an old CLEAN towel for batting.

Monday Making

When I make a quilt for a young man...
I gravitate to these colors.

I also LOVE adding stripes and plaids.
I actually have a SPECIAL box at my house....
JUST for stripes and plaids.
It EVEN contains some hand-me-down shirts!

I seem to get hand me down fabric too!

This plaid backing was given to me a long time ago.
Who knew it would be JUST RIGHT for this quilt??

The binding is finally ON
and I can call this quilt DONE!

I LOVED making this one!

This quilt is going to be given to a graduating
high school senior.
I have been making and giving quilts 
to the high school seniors of my church
for more that 15 years!
Often I organize sewing days for this project.....
but this year was so busy, I just worked on this alone.

What are YOU making this week??
