COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS

I am starting to pack my possessions in preparation for the move to a senior apartment. My stash is being used to wrap breakable items instead of using paper that I will have to throw out later. That is how I found the printed square “Count Your Blessings” that is used in this wall hanging. Here are some ideas for using fabric panels in quilts. Enjoy. I found this square on March 12, and sewed this quilt top between March…

FLYING THRU THE SCRAP BIN CONTINUED

FLYING THRU THE SCRAP BIN CONTINUED

The top is done!! Oh, happy dance!! Flying Thru the Scrap Bin Continued in this post. When I left off on the first post about this quilt back in January, I had rows of geese together. Since then, I have been slowly sewing the rows together to form the top and added borders. A nice way to spend some time on winter evenings. The above photo is of eight rows sewn together. Notice the narrow sashing between the rows of…

FLYING THROUGH THE SCRAP BINS

FLYING THROUGH THE SCRAP BINS

Another quilter challenged me to go into my pre-cut bins and make a quilt top before spring. One of my favorite patterns is Flying Geese. I just wanted something I could mindlessly chain sew while watching old movies or Flosstube. I have named this one Flying Through the Scrap Bins. Flying Through the Scrap Bin — Easy to do I pulled the bin that has 5″ squares. Some of these squares are from my scrap bins that I cut during…

2023 QUILTING

2023 QUILTING

I have been looking back through this blog to see what 2023 quilting got accomplished. Honestly, I did not get as much done as I wanted or planned. Real life has constantly interrupted in 2022 and 2023, and they are years I hope never to repeat. Nor do I wish them on anyone else. My 2023 quilting was slowed or stopped by this partial list: In 2023, what did I get done quilt – wise? I got the binding and…

1930’s ONE PATCH

1930’s ONE PATCH

This 1930’s One Patch was a fun and easy quilt to make as a wedding gift for my sister and new brother-in-law. It started in 1997 when I purchased a bag of 1930’s nine patch blocks and lots of 3″ squares at a local antique shop for $7.50. I put it aside to work on another time. Another idea for 3″ squares is here. And here are images of one patch quilts if you need more inspiration. The bag kept…

SUNSHINE & SHADOW TRIANGLES

SUNSHINE & SHADOW TRIANGLES

I had an idea for a simple wall hanging using yellow and blue triangles for several months. Sunshine & Shadow Triangles would use up more scraps cut into 5″ squares. I have been doing quilts from my scrap bins and stash since 2019, with few that were planned or not scraps in that time. It’s frugal but also makes sense when I already have so much fabric already. I sorted scraps to find the “perfect” blues and yellows for this…

PICKET FENCE QUILTS

PICKET FENCE QUILTS

Way back in the 1990’s my quilting buddy (SB) sent me this quilt pattern. I do not know where she got it, but we decided to make a charm quilt with it. We traded fabrics and challenged each other not to let this quilt become a UFO. I made 4 quilts with this pattern. I thought I would share the Picket Fence Quilts with you. The Picket Fence Charm Quilt: I pieced this Picket Fence Charm Quilt during 1995-97. There…

PRAIRIE MEADOW QUILT

PRAIRIE MEADOW QUILT

Scraps, scraps and more scraps. I saw the pattern for this Prairie Meadow quilt in the Winter 2013 Primitive Quilt magazine and thought it would make a pretty wall hanging. I had a shoebox of 2.5″ squares left over from some previous project and thought this would make a simple and easy project to use them up. You will quickly notice that the directions were used as a guide, but my pieces were different sizes based on what I had…

TUMBLING ALONG

TUMBLING ALONG

I found three shoe boxes full of tumblers. They are from the scrap bins just from the different fabrics. Tumblers are easy to sew together, and it is nice to just sit and piece on the machine. I had no real plan how this quilt would evolve but Tumbling Along just called to me. In 2020 while in COVID lockdown, I decided to cut as much as possible from the scrap bin. I cut sizes and shapes I use frequently,…

SCRAP SNOWBALLS

SCRAP SNOWBALLS

Here is another project that started during the COVID lockdown. The scrap snowball pattern can be found here. I have been cleaning and reorganizing my sewing room during July and discovered several more plastic shoeboxes of quilt pieces that were cut during the 2020 lockdowns. I had 3 shoeboxes of pieces for making snowball blocks. It seemed like a good time to finish another UFO. There was no color scheme apparently, just a wide variety of scraps. And lots of…
