Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
One more block done. No sashing yet, as I think this one is going to end up on the end of a row.
Boy, some gorgeously created blocks here. Riana, I love that kitty and the house blocks. A very lucky granddaughter. Mary, hang in there. Know it is frustrating when they just don’t listen...they have the corner on knowing how to do it all. I finally got up and walked out of the room last week. Hubby can be so stubborn. Mom did well with her dental surgery this morning, this she even surprised the oral surgeon, especially since it was under a local. She told me later she would listen cause it hurt. LOL with severe dementia I doubt it. But she is happy she can smile again with her new teeth....when they asked about doing implants I wanted to deck him...almost 99 and at $2000+ per tooth I asked if they were crazy...don’t think he appreciated my comment. Two of my PHDs are at the quilter, should be ready in a couple of weeks. Need to finish 5 more pinwheels for the Winter Memories and I can put the final borders on....then I can start on the BOM from 2018-2019. Making some progress. Most likely will postpone our cruise in October...we have until July. It is crazy and I hope you all stay safe. Mom’s place is doing an excellent job of not allowing anyone with sniffles etc. to enter the building.
Sandwiched my PhD Challenge quilt - Tulip Twist 2 this morning. Now I have to wait to get my sewing machine back to quilt it.
I have 6 rows of the Christmas Tree wallhanging pieced. It is all from my stash.
Lovely work all.
Find I'm cowering in my recliner just knitting. Having anxiety issues, even though things really are getting better. Paul got permission to drive yesterday, and I actually have a couple of hours to myself. It is terrible to be thinking, What will he do to himself next? Thank you for listening.
Thankyou :-)) it's a labour of love for my youngest grandd...but now l fear l won't get it done before we must go. I'd really rather mail within US than send over the border in Canada.
Really cute, Riana! I love, love, love the twisted cottage block.
Riana, saw your blocks on FB. They are adorable. Can't wait to see the finished quilt!
Cute little fairy also.
The castle, kitty and curved house is adorable, Nice work.
Finished the detail work on them.
Thank you, Riana. Those are really nice blocks!
Decided to take a rest from fpp and do some applique blocks...
Tulip Twist 2 is ready to sandwich. I can do it on Tuesday. Tomorrow our water and hydro will be off in the morning so Hubby and I will go out for breakfast. We are getting a back-up generator. Our building is 15 years old so some work has to done according to the reserve plan each year so the building does not fall apart.
In the meanwhile I am sewing the blocks for the Christmas Tree Wallhanging, my 3rd PhD project. This will be my present to my daughter when I visit her in June in B.C.
Thank you all, ladies for the kind words on my blocks!
Elizabeth, I can't wait to see that Tulip Twist quilt. So glad you got a great deal on the backing fabric
Kris, those 2 ballerina blocks are so stunning! I have progress to report also. The quilt top for Tulip Twist is finished and I am piecing the backing down the middle. It is a just enough yardage, approximately 180 inches or 5 yards and I paid $2. a metre for it at the QOVC garage sale. It is a farm scene and they won't use it in a QOVC quilt.
Kris great job on the fussy cutting. Elegant blocks.
Kris, the ballerinas are a nice touch. Fussy cutting is a great way to bring character to geometric blocks.
Melanie - thanks for the info on Into the Wild. I might be able to take my grandsons to see it Friday night.
Got two more blocks done. The one on the right is supposed to have an appliqued coffee cup. I replaced it with a ballerina :)
Riana, Your Mermaid and fairy turned out cute !
I did FFP one time, I really liked it, but I get so confused each time I try it. I think it is best for the sharp star's.
I admit I have made little progress on my major PHD Baltimore Christmas quilt. I have made incremental steps on other projects on my list though. No photos yet, but I stared assembling the center of the Vintage Rose and got that partially done. I have borders and dashing left on that with lots of FPP to do.
My husband and I saw Call of the Wild last weekend. It was good and is really a movie I think my 8 &9 year old grandsons would enjoy.
