Monday Making

I was very happy to have time in the sewing room this week.
This scrappy quilt top was almost done when I realized it was going to be 
TOO short!
(my daughter needs a longer quilt this time!)

I added blocks to the bottom and top 
and it really changed the look of the whole quilt.
I thought there would be Triangles all around...
Now there are scrappy squares on the bottom and top!

As I've said before...
Necessity is the mother of invention...or design in this case.

I wasn't sure how I'd lengthen this one...
But I DO like what HAPPENED!!!
I also did some harvesting.....

and roasting.
There is nothing quite like HOME grown!

As the week progressed I saw a quilt block I couldn't resist.
Kathleen Tracy's quilt blocks had me intrigued...
so I made a few.
(I did not use her pattern, but did a little figuring on my own.
You'll see my leaves are not quite like hers
and I think my blocks may be smaller.)

A new baby quilt is now underway!!!!

What are YOU making this week??

Did I need another sewing machine?
No. I didn't.

I wasn't going to purchase this SWEET little green number,
but I couldn't get it out of my mind.
I was dreaming in GREEN, believe me!

I went back to the thrift store and it was still there.
AND not only THAT....
the price was lower!!!

What to do.
What to do....

I guess you know what I did.
 I've been sewing up a storm ever since
on my new little friend!.......

Making a string quilt.
The scraps are flying!!!

I was also honored to have an art quilt
included in a local exhibit at Greenly art space.
Mine was the only quilt.
What fun!!!

I am all caught up on Barbara Brackman's
Hospital sketches quilt along.

Making each of the blocks MY OWN!

What are YOU making this week??

Table Mat Parade

I have been working on table mats for the last couple of months.

They are for an upcoming retreat.

Hopefully they will find good homes.

I tried to include different holidays
and a collection of different color combos.

Something for everyone!

They are made mostly from leftovers from quilt projects....

Or orphan blocks.
And.....of course....

If YOU have a small quilt
or a table mat to share this week....
LINK UP and share!!!!
I need to get some good ideas for next year..... :)

11 down.....ONLY 25 more to go!!!

This "sally post floral sampler" is such a fun project.
I am enjoying each little 6" block of sweetness.

This applique quilt has me captivated right now.
The housework can wait.
The dinners can be haphazard. - PB&J anyone?
The laundry can pile up!

I am going to stitch.

What is keeping YOU from chores this week??
Link up and share.


Next week I will be hosting the linky party a bit early.

It will be a TABLE MAT PARADE!!!

Please be ready to share a little quilt
that doubles as a centerpiece.

The party will begin on March 23 and end on March 27.

I look forward to seeing LOTS of little table mats.

Monday Making

Those of you who visit here often know I've been working on table mats.
I am making 10 little quilts for an upcoming women's retreat.
They will be on the mess hall tables with pictures or flowers on top.

These are the last TWO!!!

I still need to get some of them quilted and bound...
but finishing the tops is certainly a WIN for me.

When they are really ALL DONE
I will have a little table mat parade here on the blog.

I bet YOU have a table mat or two you could show off!

I'll have a little parade linky party in a couple of weeks.
How does that sound?

This week I'll work on finishing the table mats.
What are YOU making this week???
