Monday Making

Every year I make about 10-12 table mats
for a women's retreat held in the spring.

This is the first one for 2020.

I like to take orphan blocks and add borders.
It gives me a place to begin
and I always have PLENTY of scraps to add.
:)

The challenge is coming up with a variety of color combos!

They are auctioned off....
so it's nice to have "something for everyone".

What are YOU making this week??

Monday Making


I have arrived at the last of 9 blocks for the
Whew!

The applique pieces are slowly getting prepared.
Then....
I will sit in front of a cheesy hallmark movie
and SEW them on!!

Of course, I will THEN have to figure out
how to arrange all of these blocks.
Will there be sashing?
What kind?
Will there be applique around the border?

Hmmmm...
Happy thoughts.
What are YOU making this week??

Monday Making

This month my quilting guild handed out bags of fabric.
The challenge was to make one charity quilt using the fabric in the bag.

This is the end result of playing with fabric in my bag.

I enjoyed using this mix of orange!
What a fun FALL quilt!

*************

I cut the fabrics into strips 2-3" wide (width of fabric)
I sewed 3 strips together and cut them 3" wide on a 45 degree angle

Then....
I just sewed them into long sections before joining them in long rows.

Since the small strips were different sizes...
I did not match seams.
;)

When they were all about the same length...
I straightened it up.

Very simple.
Not a lot of brain power.

MY kind of quilt.

Now....to get it quilted before the meeting!

What are YOU making this week??

Monday Making

If you didn't know it already...
There are a lot of quilts at my house.

This is the one I chose to throw on the floor for the visitors today.



Babies need a place to PLOP.
:)

I made this one a few years ago using scraps found on the give away table
at a quilting class.
If I remember right...I did very little trimming.
I just sewed them together...as they came.

(sorry I didn't get a photo of a baby ON the quilt)
Oh well.
I DID GET one with all the kids!

My heart is very full.
I had ALL the grand children here at the SAME time!

I made some memories today....

What are YOU making??
