Bloglovin and Paula Dean.

As you can see i have plenty of bloglovins places you can use to follow me.
As for all these big box stores that are dumping Paula Dean, they should have to be forced to go  bankrupp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! .Something she said 27 years ago does not count now!!!!!

She was not public then so i don't see how they can be so stupid.
We all need to stop shopping at their stores.
Where is freedom of speech when we need it????

Just had to have my say.


Hi friends!
Beautiful but hot and sticky!!!
Hubby can't breathe out there. Hope it's better tomorrow , going to youngest daughter's house for a cook out.
I worked yesterday on both quilt's.  Some progress i guess!!
Made one row accross on our quilt,  and i cut some more fabric because it will take 49 just to make it square, 86 inches.
When i get that much done i will see if i need to add something.
Jarod's quilt is coming along but i am going to have to buy some more because i just have 4 1/2 yards for the top and it will take another 2 yards of something.
 Don't know what i want to go with  .  I will need some solid for binding but i need some thing else.  I think red or black will do for the binding because that's both  the Falcons and Georgia's colors.
The dark star i just tried to see if i liked it.  Don't know yet ,will have to see it in the quilt frist.

This is the two that i have added to 'little apple'
Have a great  sewing day friends.

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
This is where i stayed yesterday with my crochet and ice water.   Hubby was cutting our rather large yard so i just sat there and crocheted. 
Was sort of down and headachey so i just took it easy.  When i am like that it's best not to sew,  thats the days you have to rip out so much.

I don't know
yet whether i am going to like that green.
I am going to use this 'the neighborood' in with my layer cake because 42 is not going to make as big a quilt as i need.
It is in the same 'mood' as the layer cake and the only thing big enough to work,  i only have 1/2 yd of it so i may have to dig some more in my stash.

Another star, i always put some in for my stars.
Have a great sewing day friends.

Progress and a win!

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
Progress on both quilt's is slow because i went to the funeral home last night, my cousin died.  She was just 57.
Her brother said her Dr. put her into the hospital for tests, they gave her a shot to relax her so she could sleep and she went into a coma.  Died 3 days later.
They said her liver had shut down.
Doesn't seem right!!!!
What little sewing i did, got done when i got back home.

I won these beautiful solid colors from  'sew sisters' last week. They have a great shop in Toronto  and it got here so fast.
 I was surprised when they came today.
 Beautiful colors that i love, maybe i will put them in my quilt for us.
Thank you so much Sew Sisters

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
I bought this for Jarods quilt.  I had priced the Falcons fabric at Jo-Ann's at 15 dollars a yard, even with a 50 % off coupon gas or shipping would have cost more than the 9.99 i gave for it at Walmart.
He is a big Georgia and Ga. falcons fan!!!
He will be 16 right after Allison.  They were born about a week apart to 2 of my step daughters.
I had this layer cake of 'little apples' by Ameela Hoey  that i love and got some green to go with it to make us a big quilt for our bed.  Our bedroom is painted pale yellow and i have green curtains so this just about matches the curtains
You can see it's not a match but as close as i could get.  I couldn't take my curtains to walmart to check, so i winged it!!!
I am hoping it will look good when i get it made.
It should go fast making it like this.
Have a great sewing day friends.  Quilt happy

Allie's quilt

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
We took her quilt to her yesterday.
 I think it will go with her pink curtions.  She loves pink!!
  Her face lit up when she saw it.
 Allie is a beautiful girl , she will be sixteen her next birthday in Janurary.  A very early birthday present.
   But it's hard to get them done right at their birthday so i am giving them to them as i make them by their age.    
Jarod is just a week younger then her so he is next.
 After Jarods i am going to start making them in full size.   Wish me luck.
That's her younger brother , Noah, he already has his quilt.  He took it to Fla.  with him.

Friday finish!

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
i have a soft and cuddley quilt for Allison!!!!
Did you see? I now have a fence to hang my quilts on.
This one really puffed up.  I love this battening that i got from Jo-Anns but time will tell how many quilt's i finish from one roll.  It may not be cost effective.

Ready for binding

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
She is nearly done.!!!!!
I just cut the binding and will put it on before tonight.  I usually hand stitch them down while listening to the t v .  Then into the washer to wash out all the spray baste.    The last thing i do is sew on a label so my grands want forgot who made it for them.
I am going to make one more twin sized quilt and then i will start making larger ones for the 3 girls that are almost grown.
 They all have long term boy friends, so you never know when they might need one to fit a big bed.
 I know Tater bug needs a big one and i will have to find out what sized one Adddielou needs.  but theirs i will give to them Thanksgiving and Christmas.
  That means 7 more quilt's this year for my baby's
 Have a wonderful sewing day friends.

Allies quilt

Hi friends!
Cloudy day!

I got the tilted stars on now i am taking the stars at the bottom apart and putting that sparkly fabric  between each one.
They were shorter than the other blocks ,  maybe i made them smaller?
Any way i am making the saching between them larger so they all come out the same.
The garden is really growing All this rain is working on it .
 I except to see blooms on that squash any day!
I have to play catch up today, we sat in the dentist offfice an hour before they called us back.
I though Angel was going to walk out they took so long.
Have a great day friends.   Quilt happy

Allison's Quilt

Trying to put blocked on point

Hi friends!
Cloudy day!
Hubby worked all day Sat. on the garden , got it cleaned up real good, and it rained again yesterday.
Hubby was happy yesterday , two of his daughter's came to see him.  Baby daughter is in Fla.on vacation so she sent him a message on facebook.
Oldest daughter we didn't hear from at all.?
I am tring to put those blocks on point, don't know yet if i can get that to work but will see after i get back from caring two grand girls back for filling at the dentist.
I looked   for some pink fabric that sparkles to put on allie's  quilt that  i had forgot about having it .  Maybe i have enough to put a little on it.
I did her pillow back in the sparkle fabric so it will match.
Have a great sewing day friends.   Quilt happy

Part of a flimsy

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
See our little green tomato?
After a short nap yesterday i started putting together the blocks.   Didn't get much done before cooking supper and my three times a week 40 minutes on the treadmill.
Hubby is plowing the garden today.
Maybe he will get all his yard work done today because it's suppose to rain again on Monday.The part of the garden under that crype myrtle takes a while to dry but maybe it will be dry enough for him to get it tilled to.  I miracle groed the tomatoes and pepper yesterday, and before the storm thursday i siven dusted the squash and orka.   something had already killed one squash plant and bugs had eat on the orka leaves.
I hope you'll get lots of sewing done this weekend friends.   Lots of love and i will talk to you Monday.
