Happy Hump Day!
I’m excited to show you last weekend’s accomplishment…
Even though we had some nasty weather – I do not operate the sewing machine during lightning storms - Witch’s Night Out went from being a WIP to a Flimsy. In last Friday’s post this was just a stack of blocks and the background fabric had not been cut yet…all gazillion pieces of it.
Speaking of the longarm quilter, these are also waiting their turn…
Current Quilt Flimsies:
This is the project I was working on two posts ago, in January 2019. You can read more about it here. I’m not loving the backing fabric I selected for it so there will be a bit of shopping to do before it gets quilted.
2018 Temperature Quilt
I participated in Needled Mom’s temperature quilt sew-along in 2018. It was a fun project, keeping track of the daily temps and paper piecing the blocks on my husband’s great grandmother’s Singer 99.
But South Florida doesn’t lend itself to pretty colors in this sort of quilt.
Still need to piece a backing that includes a legend for the temperatures and I’m at a loss on how to quilt it.
This pattern is by HollyAnne Knight of String and Story. She hosted a QAL last year close to Christmas so I decided to use fabrics in the holiday’s traditional colors. This also needs backing fabric.
Pat Sloan’s Let’s Go Camping
I shared some of the progress on this quilt during the sew-along.
Y’all…this is a tad embarrassing…all it needs is binding…and the strips are cut!
I had outdoorsy motifs quilted on it
Besides Lincoln’s baby quilt I shared about last Friday, I did have a few other finishes.
Lanterns of Hope
Another HollyAnne Knight pattern made with fabrics from my stash.
I had bubbles quilted on this one to soften the hard lines of the squares...hope it worked.
Harli is my ‘grand’ dog. My daughter lived in Denver from June 2018 until May 2019 and her dog needed her own quilt to stay warm. I think this pattern was one of Bonnie Hunter’s freebies from a long time ago and the fabric was all from my stash.
(I didn't fib Julierose...I actually forgot about this pieced backing!)
Patriotic Table Topper and Pillow
My husband found a small bench at a local antique store and thought it would fit nicely just inside our front doors. I had made a log cabin table topper earlier and used one leftover block to make a pillow for the bench.
Fat Quarter Shop’s Sew Sampler Box Basket Quilt
This pattern was from SS boxes in 2017 – 2018 and the fabric is from my scrap bins.
Fruit motifs were used for the quilting on this one.
Sewing Room Wall Hanging
My friend and I found this pattern at our local quilt show a few years ago. It was wool applique’ but we used quilting cotton, a few pieces of felt…and made a few design changes as well. I’m sure the original did not include a glass of wine 😊
Many thanks to Mr. Slammin' the Screen Door for standing in as a quilt holder...you are the best!
If you’ve read to the end…thank you. In the next post I’ll share about my new(ish) hobby.
Until then, stay well!
