Monday Making

After getting my snowball quilt basted....finally.....

...I began some hand quilting this week.

Getting all those ugly basting stitches in
takes time...
but it is SO worth it!

I am using Perle cotton....
And hoping to add another color or two as I go.
One snowball at a time!

I posted about basting and quilting this quilt on my you tube channel.

I have always wanted a patriotic quilt.
This is the next best thing.
A little quilty banner to hang by the front door.

I decided this was good idea on July 3.
It was finished on July 4.

No time like the PRESENT....right?

I used lots of little leftovers
And had so much fun moving them
This way and THAT!

Then I decided to make a quilt flag for one of my boys.
He recently moved out....
And I thought he’d like a little something HOMEY to hang up.
He did!!!
Woo hoo!!!

The flag part is a panel.
All I had to do was add the half square triangles.

With no picnics or parties to attend....
I had LOTS of time to make these fun little banners.

This week I took a vintage quilt.....
(purchased a while back at a thrift store)

copied the block.....

and made a pillow sham to match.
It's not a perfect match....
but I STILL love it!!

A new pincushion is in my sewing room.
It's adding summer to my space!

This snowball 9 patch i made a while back
is SOOooo ready to be quilted.
I have been dragging me feet because
I want to HAND quilt it.

Maybe this week I'll get the quilt sandwiched up
and I can BEGIN!!!

The garden is giving us a harvest!!! 
This was last night's salad
with strawberries on the side.....
and these are the onions drying out.

My husband's garden keeps me busy
and well fed!

What are YOU making?

Making this baby/toddler quilt was good medicine this week.

Making baby quilts always helps me get in the right frame of mind.
Cutting shapes with little templates is therapy!
It does take time!!
But I enjoy the peaceful work.

Love all the HAPPY color!

Quilt is 40”x 45”
I cut 30 “I spy” tumblers and
240 solid color tumblers 

I added a tutorial on my YouTube channel

Monday Making

I rolled THREE quilts up today
and found some gift bags to place them in.

I'm looking forward to driving around this week
and passing out some graduation quilts!!!

The girls all like similar colors...
so making them similar yet different was kind of fun!

I have a photo HERE of all of them BEFORE quilting.
The ladies at my church spent a Saturday making blocks
and then I put them all together and finished the quilts.

It is a yearly tradition that I LOVE.
