More Strips

Hi friends!
Another one!
I laid out what I had of untrimmed blocks and still need a bunch more , remember these are large but are going to be cut down to 12 inch's.
There are six that are straight across that I may work into this quilt. Maybe around the edge, who knows .
This morning I got a package from Fat Quarter shop. Redpepperquilt's had a giveaway from them and I won.  Here
Isn't that cute? I have never had one of those before. Not expensive either.
Don't think I have had any fabric from American Jane before either.
Now I can't wait to use it!
Have a good one

Last Night!

Hi friends!
Anna wanted a black quilt with a few stars so I experimented yesterday. Think this one is to big because it's 8 inch's.
Of course one big and a few smaller would be neat!
My kids says I am the only person on this planet that says "neat".
They also say I was born when the Dinaszors roamed!
.I think I have already posted the top two string blocks!
The bottom one is new, made last night!
Made another last night before the voice came on!
Tommy's great nephew Is "Wilkes" He propped his mike last night but got down and keep singing. He is good!
So I am voting every night for him. Tommy refuses to touch a computer but he is cheering!
Also voted on "twitter" ! May  set Tommy up a e-mail so we can vote more!
Hope he goes all the way!
Had no idea how to do that but The Voice makes it easy on your phone.
My first time because I am not a T V lover,.
Have a good one

Tatum's and a t-shirt

Hi friends!
Have put three rows together for the top and  three for the bottom. Just need to figure out the middle row!
See my Tatum's name on this t-shirt? I worry more about my grands than I do my kids! Mine have been thru the mill and have learned to take care of themselves! Love them all!!!
When we went to Rome last week I went to Michael's and got me a t-shirt. Brought it home and washed it
I had this iron-on applique to add to it but didn't know whether it was stay after just ironing so I am adding stitch's.
That's just half of the applique so I will be looking for another shirt. Different color.
Hope you have a great day!

Tatum's and the Weekend

Hi friends!
I have just spent 30 minutes looking for my blog!
Why does our dumb computers do that to us? Trying to prove they are smarter! I hate when that happens and I spend a long time looking for my blog.
Spent Friday evening with this little sweetie!
And this one
On the banks of their creek  , Gracie ,Shania and Alisha.
That's their house sitting way back there. Eli and Kari's
They bought over 4 acres!.
He was going back to work today. Hope he felt like it!
I did get a little work done on Tatum's quilt but then had to take some stitch's out.
So I changed over to a baby quilt that is for our neighbor's new born.
Then I went back and made the block for Tatum's. Need to work on it some more so I can square it.
Maybe we will stay at home today and I can work.

Strip Blocks

Hi friends!
Another block for our quilt.
Made these two last night after supper.
Spent the day yesterday on the road so when we got home I took a nap!
When I got up felt great again so got some sewing done later.
The place where I usually get my mammogram done isn't doing it any more so we went to a new place in Fort O.
Hour drive and may look for another before next year.
Afterward we ate out and came by Walmart to get groceries. Walmart makes me tired!
Those cement floors are not good for bad backs.
At least I got two more blocks done for our quilt. Today when I get off here I plan on working on Missy's for my other blog  HERE
I am making a quilt that Dawn wanted us to make!  Dawn Here
It takes about a million 2 1/2 inch blocks!
But tonight is Q-Bees so want have time to work  on it long.
Have a great day

Hi friends!
Last night we had our breakfast for supper with my brother, sis in love and Sis. Sis is having surgery tomorrow, pray for a good one!
Sis's birthday is in March and Sis in love's birthday was last week so we try to have it around or in between . Sis's travels made it a little later than usual.
This pot holder I made for SIL! The one on top!
This is Sis's! That's not all we gave them but that's what I made them.
I forgot to take pictures last night! But we had a good time!
Thinking about using these on Michael's and Ashley's quilt. They wanted blue and cherry blossoms.
I sent her four pictures and she chose this one. I think a queen but I will ask!
Have a good one!

Hi friends!
Another row added!
Working on getting the last row put together!
Got the interfacing ironed onto the bits and added backing and battening.

Tatum's Quilt

Hi Friends!
This will be the last row on Tatum's quilt, when I get it all together.
Some how I plan on joining these pieces together to make a wide block!
I've just sewed together two row of blocks but when I finish this last row I will join them all together.
The good thing about this is that then all I will need is binding.
About finished with this!
Made three of these last week!
Should have three finish's very soon.
Next I will be doing Anna's And Michael and Ashley a quilt.
I have the fabric for Anna's but will be looking for some for Michael's and Ashley's.
Have a good one

Tatum's And Fabric for Anna's

Hi Friends!
Ordered some fabric for Anna's quilt Monday I think and it got here today.
She wants mostly black with small multi colored stars here and there.
I did a little sewing last night after my vision cleared from seeing the retina Dr
A neighbor had a baby girl last week!
Wednesday I worked on Tatum's quilt for a while. Just a busy Dr. wise week so not much sewing went on.
Last night at 2 and several times after that I was up stretching my legs because they don't like sitting in the car.  Or Dr. office's!
Didn't do enough walking and to much of that was on cement floors.
They ached and hurt most of the night!
Just another night of a 76 year old teen!
I will make up for it this weekend.
Have a great weekend

Tatum's Quilt

Hi friends!
Sewed together six rows on Tatum's t-shirt quilt. I still need to put together one more row!
Larger shirt fronts!
Yesterday I sewed the adding strip onto one row.
It's been really hard to go back to quilting every day after spending days cleaning and cooking. Bit I am still getting in a little every day.
It's just so pretty outside that we don't want to stay in!
Tommy was back out there yesterday because the grass in the back grows so fast.
Freeze warning for tonight and again this weekend.
And snow up North, where is spring?
My flowers are growing but may get bit! One year we had a hard freeze and it killed all the leaves in the top's of the trees.
We may have that again!
Have a good one

Finish's for March

Hi friends!
Back doing strings!
Did two last night after resting most of the day.
I measured the one on the right , it's nearly 13 inch's from top to bottom .
Remember my blocks are going to be 12.
My only finish last month:
Angel's Quilt
Tommy was out their Sat. before Easter ! He said he was knocking off the heads of the dandelions.
He always does this!
One of my tulips! Had another one but Shania loved it! It went home with her.
Have a good one
