Jewel Box Quilt

Hi friends!
Made three of the jewel box blocks. Made this one wrong!
You can sew things on wrong when you are talking !
At least I can!
we had a quite weekend , got up Sunday after Tommy had coughed all night and I hadn't sleep because my hip was hurting so we didn't make it to church.
That happens when it rains all night.
Getting old is not for sissy's!
Though we would be going to the Dr. today but He was better this morning.
Made another one yesterday.
Right now I am just having fun making blocks, will think about how to lay them out as I go.
 Like the way it makes other blocks when joined.
All of these are just made from tri-angles and four 2 1/2 inch squares but it's it neat?
Have a great day

Janurary Q-Bees

Hi friends!
It was cold in the church where we meet Sat.

Vickie had made Dianne a scarf for Christmas.
Dianne has been working on these.

She is intending to sale them at market.
I took this and showed it.
 Susan brought a pattern for a wheelchair hanging pocket for us to consider making and she is going to make us all a pattern. Just for a little something different from what we carried last year. But as that nursing home was so big we decided to make some more for another unit this year.
We also decided to let anyone that wanted to make a veteran's quilt make one  and some of the girls as going to share making one .
That way we can give more quilts this year on veterans day.
During these early months we are going to have our meeting on Saturday mornings at least until the time changes again.
So some that can't see good at night can come.
We had one new member that I hope keeps coming. Another Barbara Gale. that makes three Barbara's now in our group. We missed Gladys ,she always keeps us laughing and Bonnie who was visiting her daughter.
Till next month.

String Quilt

Hi friends!
Still working on my string quilt.
Doing one when I have a few minutes.
Started Landon and Tori's quilt , so far one block.
Loving this block!
We went and bought groceries yesterday but when we got home Tommy said "I forgot to get Tylenol"
So I guess we will got back today. A couple of other things that he had forgot to write on my list will have to be bought to. He likes Tylenol 8 hour gel.
Suppose to get to 50 today so I will walk later.
Hope you have a great week end.

Hi friends!
Did the other two after a trip to town yesterday.
After supper I sandwiched all four.
Shania's Fabric finally came , now I am looking for a good pattern to make it by.
I have three different fabric's. A snowball quilt would show case all the characters.
The teal is for Landon and Tori a wedding quilt.  Got the grey to go with it earlier
Got to find some more different teal fabric to mix it up. They want a jewel box quilt.
Got my next few months planned out now.

Hi friends!
Only quilting that I have done so far on my new Christmas table runner.
I was expecting fabric for Shania's quilt today but no mail. One of our mail-persons may have left it some where else, she has done it before.
Liking this pattern! A great scrap quilt.

The owner of it!
 I found it in a magazine that I won from Aunt Em'squilts  HERE
That's her facebook page.
There are a couple of quilts I would like to do in this magazine.
It was so nice yesterday so Tommy worked on the drive way.
We had gotten some mud holes near the car porch and we were tracking mud in all the time so he fixed it.
The winner of my giveaway was Imogene , got in touch with her yesterday.
Since she is in my quilt group I will deliver it Sat. when I see her.

Our Weekend

Hi friends!
This is Angel and Cameron.
Angel is one of my grand babies and she and Cameron are moving to Texas. She came down and eat breakfast with us Sat. Because we wont see her again till Christmas . Then she and I went and walked and talked for a while before she had to leave.
I played with fabric this weekend , Christmas I realized that my Christmas table runner was four or five years old so I believe it's time for a new one.
Didn't finish either one , when looking for a border I really piled up the fabric rejects.
Did find some I had forgot That I had bought!
Hopefully the paw patrol fabric will be here tomorrow and I can get started on Shania's big girl quilt.

My Christmas Quilt

Hi friends!
Added borders onto my Christmas quilt..
Wasn't to sure about this fabric.
But it picked up lots of the same colors .
It was a square quilt but not big enough for our queen bed so this is what I finally found that works.
With all the Christmas fabric I have , it still took me forever.
Maybe I can get it sandwiched this weekend.

Good Christmas

Hi friends!
My Santa present from Dawn..Her Blog
Love my sewing machine wall quilt for my wall!
Love my snowman wall quilt from JulieRose  ....Her Blog
All of it just made my Christmas morning.
One quilt I left out of my line up was a beach quilt I made for my baby step daughter Tonia.
I had saved a picture of it but lost it some how!
If I really looked I am sure their are a few more that I missed.
Before Thanksgiving, I think ,I put up two quilts I was working on to work on Christmas..
One was this.
I finally found some Christmas fabric that had the same colors in it so I cut borders .
I will post that tomorrow.
