Happy Memorial Day! 
Today we honor all of those that have sacrificed their lives for our freedoms.

Block #7 all cut out and ready to sew,

along with Block #8.
This will be a short week for me sewing as we are preparing for a road trip to the Deadwood SD and the Black Hills.

I also finished up the next installment of my Heart and Hand Blocks. This was a group project started in 2020 and has been put aside for awhile. Our little group has decided to start this up again so we can finish out quilts.I now have 53 completed and I think need to get to about 70 or 80 to finish my quilt.

Here are my first 49. The next 4 will be prepped this week. Enjoy your day!

 Two more blocks done! Five and six are almost finished. This week will be adding the friendship stars and borders that go around the blocks. I will also be cutting pieces for 7 and 8. Lots of longarm quilting going on, with several charity quilts in the works.

All for now, have a great week

Stash Report


Above is my very first quilt, which I shared at our chapter meeting on Tuesday. Eight of us, shared out first quilts and how we got into quilting. It was super fun and so interesting to see what everyone had made.

Here I am sharing a mini quilt that was also one of my early quilts. I got into minatures, when I was working, cause I thought they would be fast and fun. They are not so fast, but yes a lot of fun to make.

A trip to Modern Quilts on Tuesday after our Chapter Meeting yielded the fabrics above. These will be used for a baby quilt for my niece who is due soon and is having a boy. Colors were grey, blue, green. I will most likely pull the orange fabric out and add more blue and grey. I am thinking of a Minky for the backing. Updated stash numbers below.

 Used this week: 0 yards.
Used YTD: 107.5 yards.
Purchased this week: 3.5 yards.
Purchased YTD: 66.5 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 41 yards.

Have a great week!

Monday was a travel day home, after a very fun long weekend in San Diego. Weather was perfect and it was fun to spend time with family.

This week I am working on more blocks for Fairy Duster. Above blocks 3 and 4 almost complete. Just need to add the extra pieces and friendship star blocks for the finish. Up next, 5 and 6 cut out and ready to sew. They seem to be getting a bit more complicated as we go,

Busy week for me, Chapter Meeting yesterday and Longarm meeting on Saturday. 
Enjoy the rest of your week!

Stash Report

Yes, I did get this charity quilt finished, but it was the only sewing I did all week. This is headed for the longarm and will be quilted up this coming week.

 My Fairy Duster quilt is coming along slowly. There are 92 friendship star blocks to make for the blocks and borders. They finish at 3". I have cut out most of them with the Accquilt- which is making it much easier. Two of the large paper-peiced blocks are done and two more cut out and ready to sew.  Much work to be done on this one!

Nothing purchased this week.

 Used this week: 10 yards.
Used YTD: 107.5 yards.
Purchased this week: 0yards.
Purchased YTD: 63 yards.
Net Fabric Used YTD: 44.5 yards.

Enjoy your week!

Happy May Day!

This is a quilt I have been working on during my Tuesday Sewing group. It was a kit purchased a long time ago and will be for charity. Hope to finish it up this week as I only have the borders to go.
Stay tuned.....
