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??

Friday Finish

This is Graduation quilt #3!

All quilted and bound.

I'm calling these quilted lines....

I made the bumps AD LIB.
Ad lib means there was NO marking involved.

One LESS step.

I have just ONE MORE QUILT to finish
before graduation!!!

Happy Friday.

Monday Making

This is the quilt that I've been cuddling with this weekend.
Being under the weather is NO fun...
but it SURE it nice to have an abundance of quilts.

I made this one a long time ago.
I used a thin wool batting and HAND quilted it!
It's the perfect quilt.
Not too heavy and bulky.

Not sure what I'll be working on this week yet...

What are YOU  making???

Friday Finishes

 I was able to finish TWO quilts this week!

It DID help that they were BOTH sandwiched and

These are the first two of FOUR that need to be completed soon.

Four high school graduates will receive a little QUILT LOVE this year.

Graduations get earlier and earlier, don't they??

Believe it or not....
I still have SCRAPS in the basket!!
Even blue ones!!

Monday Making

I just returned from a great trip to Switzerland.
Right before leaving, I finally settled on WHAT
to take for HAND WORK.
The. most. important. item. to. pack!

I took along a few of these vintage dresden plates.
I have a whole stack!

After quickly machine basting twice through...
I had JUST what I needed to work on!
I am appliqueing around the outside of petals
and then I will add a center piece.

I also took wool yarn and knitting needles 
for my husband's new beanie.

I finished just in time
for a little alpine horn blowing!

What are YOU making this week???
