Busy Weekend

Hi friends!
My daughter came and got her quilt yesterday.
She said it was beautiful.
This morning she came by after she got off of work at 6 and left me some pretties.
I wasn't up so she left it on the back porch.
Kari my sweet grand daughter found this some where and sent it by Jessie to me by way of her mother.
Looks rough don't it!
Kari sent me a video a few days ago and it runs , wiring is a bit rough.
The petal is from a later model of machine but some one wired it up and it chugs along.
Decal are like my feather weight and the face plate to.
But right now I have else something I must do.
Some birds found our corn so we had to start pulling.
We planted so late that we are having all kinds of problems.
Got to get that into the freezer today.

Finished Quilting

Hi friends!
As luck would have it I ran out of filled bobbins and still had a corner left to quilt.
But I filled another and finished .
When I finish each quilt I clean it out and oil it, hopefully it will last me many more years.
Now Wayne's quilt is on the couch and I am sewing down the binding.
After the sun left the yard late yesterday Tommy got out and cut grass.
He cuts inside the garden fence. to keep down snakes .
This is what I got out of the garden yesterday.
It's just starting to produce, our first tomato's were rotten from way to much rain.
we got 2 inch's of rain last Sat. and haven't had any since. Maybe this weekend.
Have a good weekend

Slow Day

Hi friends!
Still working on this!
I started quilting yesterday and we had company so after they left I quilted some more.
Should get finished today and maybe get the binding sewed on.
Being a queen it takes a while and I make lots of stops.
Watching Jenny as I sew!

Quilting on this! It's boring for readers when all you are doing is quilting by machine or hand.
Have a good one.

Wayne's quilt

Hi friends!
I worked on quilting this yesterday.
May have nearly half of it done. His birthday is next Monday.
I started hand quilting on the Q-Bee's nursing home quilt. I couldn't do it with out a frame so I looked for one my mother in law had here that is stout.
I bough one at a quilt shop last year but it's not strong enough to hold it.
I made this for a good friend of mine! She loved it.

Lined it with a flowered fabric.
It's kind of boring when I am quilting, because I do it for a while then stop so my arms and shoulders rest.
Have a good one

Busy Weekend

Hi friends!
Secret sewing!
I finished quilting and binding the vintage farm quilt.
At least one finish this month! I will post more later of this quilt.
I sandwiched Wayne's Quilt and have ironed it so it's ready to start quilting.
My kitchen sink quilt.
Finally I sandwiched this little quilt but I have to hand quilt it so it may be Thanksgiving before I finish it!
Thinking about making another and quilting it on the machine since I have enough of the backing left for another. Using flannel for backing.
I really worked over the weekend.

We had our July meeting of the Q-Bee's last night. They were watching Dejoyla hand quilt because they joined a little latter than the rest.
She gave a very interesting discussion on color.
This is Bonnie's , she hand stitch's every quilt she makes, hand makes the blocks and hand quilts them.
This is Bonnie and another one of her quilts.
This is Gladys, Beautiful!

Today!

Hi friends!
I also found out a couple of days ago that Wayne does not like the falcons or sports. So I put all his blocks up and pulled out all my blocks that I just made for no reason. It should be very colorful!
I was trying to find a non frilly border for it and though about   this but looks like I need to keep looking.
It may not be frilly but it really doesn't look like it will work with this.
I need some thing bright, it not finished just about half way . But his birthday is less than two weeks and I must finish it by then.
I'm still plugging away with this to and I need to look for binding for it. Should be finished soon.
Have a good one

New Bag

Hi friends!
Last night i decided i wanted a bag to carry my stuff to Q-Bee's.
Some one had sent me one but i looked and looked and couldn't find it.
Cut two pieces of fabric and another two for the lining and sandwiched it and quilted them.

Then sewed then together! Made we two skinny straps and placed then where i wanted them added a two inch strip on top of them and sewed them down putting extra stitches into where the straps were pinned.
then flipped it over pinned it fold into down where it was fairly even and sewed over the bottom and then around the top.
All packed and ready for our meeting tomorrow.
Some one who will remain anonymous sent me this cow bag that holds all my little stuff, plus my quilt top for our project and a fat quarter for a game.
All ready!
Hugs
