2016 RSC August Light Purple and Gray Week 2, Voodoo Doll Pincushions, Doll Quilt, Tote


Another busy week and not a lot of sewing. Summer, life and family still the priority. Still I had some light purple fun. Pictured is another doll quilt. They are fun to sew.
Our annual guild quilt show is next month. I found several YouTube video clip tutorials about making pincushions. One was making Voodoo Doll Pincushions found here. They were easy, fun and cute. All hand work. I also make two rectangle pincushions using this YouYube video clip.
Money raised from Boutique sales buys supplies for our charity projects.

My oldest granddaughter has a birthday next week. I made a tote to hold the small quilt I made for her last month.

2016 RSC August Gray and Purple Week 1, Doll Quilts, Catching Up


This has been a very busy summer with not a lot of blogging the last few months. Things should be back to normal this fall.
Pictured are pink blocks,  mug rugs and pot holders. Had to play with more pink before I could move on to gray and purple.
August's gray and purple column for my RSC Column Along Quilt is all finished. Looking forward to seeing this quilt come together in the fall. Gray blocks and a gray pot holder finish out the picture.
Been sewing Scrappy Happy Houses, a Bonnie Hunter free pattern found on her Quiltville blogspot, for two years. I have 28 of the 48 blocks I need for a large quilt. It may be another year before this quilt is finished.


I love making doll quilts. Pictured are a couple pink themed ones.

2016 RSC June Pink and Green Week 2


This has been such a busy summer with not a lot of time for sewing, blogging or blog surfing. I finished some turquoise items and then moved forward with pink and green scraps. Pictured are two columns, turquoise stars and pink chevrons, for our RSC sew along column quilt. A pink boxy star, two 36-patch blocks and four 16-patch blocks made it into the picture. To see what other made with pink and green scraps, go here.


Pictured is a turquoise themed baby doll quilt and a couple turquoise 8"x 10" batik mug rugs.
RSC turquoise May was a FUN month. A RSC pink June is going to be FUN, too!

2016 RSC Aqua Turquoise Weeks 1-4, Laura Burch Cat Quilt and Media String Quilt Finishes


It's been a busy month. Though I like to post at least once a week, this month I'll only do one. Pictured is a doll quilt, a pot holder, two 36-patch blocks, a wonky star block, and a boxy square block in RSC aqua/turquoise.
Four QOV blocks and two pot holders in tan and pink print squares made it into the picture. They will be turned in during this month's quilt guild meeting this week.
To see what others made with their aqua/turquoise fabrics go here.
My plans are to do more RSC sewing this week as I didn't sew my aqua/turquoise RSC column, Another doll quilt,  pot holder and a couple mug rugs are on my sewing "to do" list this week.
.

This small quilt has been in the works for a few years. It's made with Laura Burch fabrics. The 12 cats were cut from a panel. Narrow strips of colorful fabric are around each cat. Finally the blocks are sashed with 2.5" strips. This quilt has not been in the washer and dryer. It finished at 38.5"x 54". Will be a gift.


This is a close up of string quilt that has been planned for a few years. Lots of movie and cartoon novelty prints here.


Above is a picture of the finished quilt. 1.5" string were sewed onto 7.75" pieces of phone book paper with a 2.0" string of Kona white in the centers of each square. The setting is 7x10 squares with a 4.5" blue border and green binding. It's quilted with a loose free motion meander with loop-de-loops here and there. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 55"x 76.5". This quilt shrunk big time while in the washer and dryer. Though I love this quilt, it will be a gift.

2016 RSC May Green Week 4


The last RSC week of playing with green scraps and I'll add two 7"x 10" batik mug rugs, a super scrappy hot pad, a green and blue 16-patch block and a green and blue 36-patch block to my collections. Looking forward to a new color. Can't believe it is almost JUNE! Where did the time go. To see what other made with their green scraps go here Saturday morning.


There is a picture showing progress made on my media themed string quilt. Only 19 string blocks left to make before I start sewing all my blocks together and adding a border. I would like to have this TVquilt finished in two or three weeks.

2016 RSC May Green Week 3


This week I worked on a green RSC column of flying geese. All my other column blocks were loose so I sewed them together. I wanted to audition my colorful RSC columns. So far, looking good! To see what others made with their green prints, go here.


A grandson requested a string block quilt. Since his birthday is in August, I thought I'd start making blocks for a media themed quilt. I'm sewing colorful 1.5" strips of fabric on 7 3/4" square pieces of paper torn from a phone book. The centers are 2" strips of Kona White fabric. I using a lot of super hero, movie, cartoon and tv themed prints.
