Yesterday

Hi friends!
Finished up two yesterday.
Charm squares and the last one is some blocks left over from a quilt I made my daughter a few years ago.
Great way to use up old blocks.
One adult bib!
Yesterday while looking for something I came across a project full of five inch tumblers. Will empty that box and make another.
That will make five !  I may or may not finish the one I didn't like.
Have a great weekend.

Adult Bibs

Hi friends!
So far I have four that just needs Velcro added with another cut out.
I am backing these with flannel that I have in my sewing room.
Different ones as long as they are big enough to fit the pattern that Carolyn brought to Q-Bees.
Tommy says I have more fabric than Walmart but It's not all big enough to fit the pattern.
All of it is leftovers from other quilts unless I have just bought it recently.
I worked a while yesterday on this.
Finished quilting it and added binding.
After trimming !
Yesterday we went outside to find this.

This picture refused to turn for me! This baby is going into the shop soon.
I order mine from Walmart with what saving catcher's  found but soon they are changing that. guess people were getting to much money.
I will have to get my daughter to walk me through that change.
Need  that money for my battening!

Wheelchair Quilts

Hi friends!
My first finish on the wheelchair quilts. They need to be 36 by 45.
Close up of the quilting.
My second one.
This one I worked on quilting last night.
This one is waiting to be quilted.
Ran out of idea's on this one so I will take a brake for a few days.
We were sitting outside drinking our coffee this morning when a big wad of bees fell down on the porch. Tommy went and got the wasp spray and got that nest, we hope.
They are awful this year every one is getting stung.
Their seems to be millions of them!
Building high does that mean snow?
We need a hard freeze to kill off some of these insects.

My House Blog Hop


Hi friends!
This is my spot on Carols  Welcome to My House Blog Hop. Here is the link to click on to get to Carol's blog  Justletmequilt.
This is what I made for our hop.
I finished the top last week end. It's a wheel chair quilt for our annual visit to a nursing home.
Tommy has family in the one we are visiting in Dec.. Don't know how Mary is kin but she is and I am making this one for her. They are suppose to be about 36 by 45, this one is a tiny bit bigger but not much. 
I sand-witched it Monday and Quilted it this afternoon. Then while the news was on I bind it. Before I quilted it I starched and Ironed all the wrinkles out of the back and front.



My other quilt  top is this
This is a quilt top that was given to me by the son of a very dear friend after she died.
Don't know if I will make a quilts from it or not. Right now I am just holding it.
I was told it was a school house block but when I entered Quilt house block into google this was shown!
I am having a giveaway
Six fat quarters, Just leave a comment. Now go and visit all the other bloggers posting today.

Sewing stars

Hi friends!
This is this weeks blocks for Happy Quilting sewing stars sew along.
Nine wonky stars!
I don't do wonky very good. But tried!
HERE is the link to follow to Mellisa Corry's blog  Happy Quilting to start sewing stars to make yourself a great quilt.
Not many more weeks to go and we should finish a 80 by 80 quilt by Some time in Oct.
Last weeks stars.
Beautiful stars for the second week. These were a stretch for me but Melissa included a cut out that you print off that makes it easy peasy!
The first weeks double stars.

Strip Blocks

Hi friends!
Still making strips blocks , I have lots of strips left over from quilts I have made. Still have bags stored in totes of strips I need to get out.
Made four this week.
Think I may use red to join these blocks.
Last week end , I prepared six for working on this past week. I ironed the backing , applied basting spray and put scrap battening on it.
Then it was ready just to sew the strips across.
May get the other two done before the week end is over. Then I will work up some more for next week.
Have a good week end
