Monday making - this and that

This week I made these SUPER cute potholders.
I used some leftovers....of course!

These were leftover strips from a honeybun package.
Little tiny strips only 1 1/2” wide!

I didn’t have many...
I didn’t NEED many.

I also ended up doing a little sewing at my daughter’s house.
We were visiting her family in Texas 
and I found I had more time on my hands than expected.

With ONLY a sewing machine and NO supplies....
What was I to DO???
Shop at the thrift store!

I found some fabric (shirts and pillowcases)
And got to work!!

Don't cringe TOO MUCH when you see the scissors I'm using.

Video is HERE.

monday making - doll quilt...OR?

I made a small quilt this week on my youtube channel.

First I showed how to make the block.

I then added a binding that for ME was unusual.

Will the dollies get to use it???

Will it become something totally different?
This project was based on this quilt I found last week
At a thrift store.
I LOVE old quilts.....don’t you?

monday making with the grandkids

The HIGHLIGHT of my week was sewing with 
TWO of the Grandkids!

Pillowcases AND.....

Drawstring bags!

My grandson LOVED pushing the pedal as I guided the fabric.
He also did a little BACKstitch and of course....
the thread cutter!

I had a bunch of bags to sew for a friend who
Leads a massive effort to fill Christmas boxes for
Operation Christmas Child.

I added both projects to my youtube channel.

Thank you for linking up each week and
encouraging others in their creative sewing adventures!

Monday making

This week I was able to get this quilt quilted!
I added a curvy vine and leaves.
It seemed the perfect design for this beautiful quilt!

This quilt top was tucked in with a bunch of hand me down fabric a couple of years ago
And NOW it’s a QUILT!!

You just never know when the perfect quilt finds the perfect home!

This one is going to a fundraiser at my son’s group home.

I also shared about making the block for this quilt on my channel.

Monday making - a finish

I finished a big project this week.
10 table mats for an upcoming event.😉

I had a bunch of leftover batting strips
(Given to me recently)
And they were the PERFECT size for my little quilts!

I LOVE when that happens.

There is a slim chance I’ll make a couple more little quilts...
But IF NOT....
I am ready with these!!

All except ONE of these little quilts are included on
My youtube playlist - “table mats

Monday making - just one block

One simple block with 
SO MANY color options!

I made this block this week and found out 
It’s a disappearing hourglass.

(I had used an OLD quilt block as my inspiration)

I didn’t make an hourglass...
And I didn’t make it disappear!

If I had used that method I would not have been able to make it quite so 

I used squares and strips to make this pretty block.

I DO love scrappy quilts.

(MY youtube video on this block are here and HERE)

But... I love the simple 2 color quilts as well!

Who can resist plaid??
