Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Chris: Your quilt is spectacular!! Congratulations on the great finish.
Zoe Your quilts are going to be super. I can imagin the heart quilt will make a great wedding quilt.
Liz, this is my towel dress
Here are some of the centers blocks for the Log Cabin blocks. This is for the wedding coming up, yes.. it will be late. I have more cut out, plan to sew tonight and hope to post more tomorrow.
The heart ones I did not make, but with everything going on here and not being able to spend the time I used to sewing, I got these for the wedding. quilt this fall, for my nieces step sister. The girl who made these also made a pretty 45 x45 top, so I will add these somehow and make a nice throw. I realize it will not be the best fabric, it will just have to work. I plan to put blue on the back.
Yay Chris! That is one beautiful quilt! Congratulations on your first PHD completion, I'll stike it off tbe master list.
Zoe, glad you're back on track. Would you please take a photo of the leaves you've completed?
Mary, l know how important the message behind those tapestries are. Imagine the work involved of those 2 story high tapestries depicting history that hang in the castles of England and Europe!
Barbara, have fun with the monsters. Are they tbe one- eyed ones?
Wilma - that's adorable!
Chris - what a spectacular finish. That quilt is a winner.
You all have been doing great work. Chris, wow ! That one took time, it sure is pretty ! I decided to cheat a bit and there is a wedding for a young gal who I really do not know, but I still wanted to get her a quilt. I found someone who had made heart blocks. So, today I went to Joann's because I could tell that was the fabrics that she used and I needed to add to the top with creams that matched. If you have not gone into that store ( I realize this is not top notch fabric) but it is about wiped out. I need to get back to the Maple leaf quilt now.
Chris you are an inspiration. If I could just cut out all these lovely naps.
You are right Riana...back to the tapestry.
Barbara, what are towel dresses?
Congratulations! Wonderful quilt! Chris, you are awesome.
WOW Chris! Awesome! Congratultions!
I HAVE A FINISH! My first PHD. It is quilted and bound and ready to wash!
That was just a note from one procrastinatior to another. Mamma Duck I am still working on my Monsters but have to stop to make the little towel dresses for Mothers Day at Church. I only have 8 left to do. And have only 1 1/2 weeks to do it in. That should be plenty of time.
Nice work, Wilma.
Dear Procrastinator Supreme, Great Advice!
Thank You, Kris.
Wilma, this quilt is beautiful! Please tell more about it. Is that applique or panel blocks or crayon technique or....? So soft!
Binding almost finished on St. Pats. Would have finished last night but fingers are getting sore. All my PHDs are tops to be quilted except for tee shirt quilt which my plan is to usesome orphan bocks with. My design wall is my bed or living room floor, don't have the ability to concentrate or think outside the box right now so I will work on somethig else right now and let my poor fingers get to feeling better. I quilt by hand and my fingers have surprise me by getting old along with the rest of me. I wil finish the binding today. I have other projects taht I can work on, machine work. They may be next years PHDs.
Wilma, I just love the beautiful ferns and leaves, so restful to look at, especially the butterfly.
Riana, I am very hopeful that I won't have any spilling over to next year. I don't want to be called to the principal's office or Mama Duck's office. Can't wait to see GD's quilt.
Haha! Riana, you are really tough on Mary. I think that Mary should chose a project of hers that is the easiest on her and the most fun to work on and give that her priority at this time and only work on the more intensive of her projects when she feels like - advice from the PROCRASTINATOR SUPREME - me!
Riana - so much work your GD's quilt - but it's going to be terrific!
Barbara - your table runners are beautiful and so perfect for those tables. Don't despair over your brother. My youngest brother finally got married in his mid 40s.
I finished the WIP that was on my midarm, just waiting for the batting to arrive in the next couple days to start quilting the SS.
I'm also assembling blocks from units on the Wedding Star quilt, but I'm having to take apart and redo some blocks because the pinks and lilacs are in the wrong places, sigh Oh well.
Oh how the seasons are blurring! Chistmas with Elizabeth ( looking great...nice change from reds/ greens), St. Pattrick's with Gail ( glad the end's in sight for you, hang in there!) , sping/ summer with Wilma ( such lovely spring shades) and autumn with Zoe...( lets see some of those leaves, even without their "frames"?).
Mary, if l let yours spill over to next yr., you won't even get one done. So NO ! When you said you'd do 3, l want your very best efforts to do them until Dec.31/2020. I know life gets in the way, but you must focus. A little/ day...l'm proud of your hand quilting efforts and tapestry work. Concentrate on those 2, and give Don Q a rest until you have less on your mind...you can do this!
Well, I got a call from the quilter and my two PHDs are finished. I pick them up tomorrow. I will then add binding and will be able to finish up 2 of my six. Yippee. Here is a preview of one of them...she posted it on our sewing club’s Facebook group....keeps my group in touch with each other. We are still making masks, and they sent a notice out to the association that we would sell residents masks...we have already donated over 3000 to local hospitals, hospice groups, etc.
so here is a look...
Yes, Gail, that sounds fine. I'll definitely be able to finish the Christmas Tree Wall hanging by July if everything continues as is. I have been sewing some of the rows of the LBQ and I work on the odd square for various quilt-alongs. It's warming up a bit and I can wear a jacket instead of my Winter coat when Hubby and I go for a walk.
