Monday Making

I FINALLY started HAND quilting my "H" quilt!

It was at first difficult to decide HOW to quilt it.
Then it was hard to imagine HAND quilting the entire thing!
Just thinking about it slowed me down!

After getting a few H's done...
I'm not as hesitant to work on it!!
Amazing how just a few stitches can get the
ol' quilting juices going!

I'm also working on a simple baby quilt.

Gotta love those simple scrappy quilts!!!

Monday Making

It's time for a MONDAY MAKING party again!

The weeks FLY by...
Don't they??

I'm always happy to have time at home to sew
and FINISH a quilt like in the last post.

MUCH of time though...
I'm on the GO and need a project that's portable.

KNITTING to the rescue!

I'm working on a shawl these days.

that I found on ravelry.
What a GREAT source of inspiration!!

Saturday Scraps

It is SO so nice to get a quilt finished!!

I love all the warm scraps in this one.

I found the perfect green to bind it....

And the PERFECT backing fabric!!
In my STASH!!

Isn't that a pretty fabric on the back???

A simple wavy diagonal line
is now one of my favorite quilt motifs.

Instead of using my walking foot
I put the feed dogs down...
use my quilting foot.
I loosely follow the diagonal without STRESSING 
about it being exactly straight!

I used a half log cabin block to make this quilt.
2 1/2" strips.
Super simple.
The perfect kind of SCRAP QUILT.

This week I hope to make more Christmas blocks
using THIS pattern.

I doubt if this Christmas quilt will be done in time!
I will see how far I get!!

I am still trying to use ONLY my stash.
Do you know how hard that is??
Sometimes the color options are THIN!
Believe it or NOT!

What are YOU making this week??

Isn't this a pretty quilt?
I love all those pretty fabrics!

This isn't my quilt top.
It was in the pile of TO BE QUILTED
charity quilts at my local guild.

I enjoy the quilting process when there's
absolutely NO PRESSURE!!!

And charity quilts are in THAT category!

I also am happy these quilts are a manageable SIZE!!!

I am meandering around
with a loose flower motif.

It is a doodling kind of quilting
and it WORKS perfectly.

What are YOU working on this week??
