Landon and Tori's Quilt

Hi friends!
I have been working on these , got so many on my wall that when I ran the vacuum they all came flying off.
So I put them into a tote  and started again.
Added these in the last few days.
A few more and I will lay them out on the bed and see how I want to place them.
Beautiful blocks! And I love the pattern they make.
Spent yesterday cutting to make those blocks.
I just lay them all out and sew each line together. then sew the lines together. All of these have not been trimmed yet.
Will do that when I have enough.
Have a good one

My Weekend

Hi friends!
Spent most of my weekend making my backing for this quilt and Shania's, some I had added earlier just didn't like.
Friday when I started to sew on my feather weigh it wouldn't run.
So I spent hours trying to get a tiny thread out from behind my bobbin case. Dropped the gib screw into the part where the needle went and had to turn it upside down to get it out!
Then was afraid I would lose it  , put every thing back and got my hubby to screw it in.
That would have to win a award for being the tininess screw in the world.
Got my backing finished finally and needed to add another strip of fabric to the backing for this quilt.
Now I was ready to sandwich these.
Got this one sandwiched . Still need to iron .
Then this one! So at lest I am moving on with these, just need to iron with starch and they will be ready for quilting.
Have a good one

Trimming Tri-angles

Hi friends!
I made  a big pile of tri-angles yesterday for Landon and Tori's quilt.
 Lots of tri-angles
These rulers are great for squaring up your tri-angles.
You just center your seam with the line and trim.
You will be amazed at how much better your blocks line up after you trim them.
 You can get them at any quilting shop on line I love mine

Shania's Quilt

Hi Friends!
This piece of fabric I decided to use like a panel because one yard to the next repeated.
So the whole yard was one scene.
I found some panels but they were out of stock after Christmas .
Since she is three and loves paw patrol ,
It's just all paw patrol decided not to make blocks.
Went with this!
To lengthen it I added some dots.
Then I added the bright red.
Ended up with a twin to full sized quit top.
 Now to get it sanwiched.
Have a great day

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.

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.
