Bleeding fabric.

 Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
I made this yesterday and ironed it and it bleed.
 See you can see it good on this picture.
This last block has the same red in it.
So i guess i will be washing red fabric today!
Got an order from today so i will mostly replace that red with the reds in the picture above this last one.
I ordered 3 reds , those 3 reds should take care of that problem.  I will wash it any way because i wanted to use it in the border of  Michael's quilt.
Usually i Don't wash my fabric but this is the first i have had bleed when i ironed it.
When i made Gracelyn's quilt in April and washed it the purple that i got at Hancocks faded.  That's the only two times i have had any problem with my fabric.
Got that red in the washer right now.
Have a great sewing day friends.

 Hi friends!
Sunny day!
We went to town yesterday and afterward all i did was just piddle.
I had this flannel and though i would make me some PJ's, never wore then to bed but last year my feet and legs seem to get cold at night so i am going to give it a try.  I had bought this flannel some time last year and took apart an old pair of shorts that were to short to use for a pattern.  got them cut out .
 We went to the dollar store and got me 2 totes.  You know why!!! had to have some where to put all the fabric that i just had stacked all over that keep falling in the floor.

I did cut some squares for Michael quilt and made some tri-angles but just couldn't  get started.
Maybe i will get something done over the weekend to show you next week .
And next week i should get my Janome back Monday or Tuesday. Fingers crossed!!!
Have a great weekend friends.

Michael's blocks

 Hi friends!
Another rainy day!
I made two more blocks for Michael's quilt.   I used some route 66 scraps for this one that has cars in it.
I love these pinwheel stars.  They are so crisp and pretty.
Michael's sisters wants their quilts to have black in them so i couldn't pass up this black with butterflies. It even sparkles.
Tator bug wants black and white and addie lou wants black, white and purple.  I bought 4 yards and may wish i had bought more but i like to use a lot of different things in my quilt's

Isn't this pretty. You can see the sparkles.  The blue is for Michael's quilt.
I also ordered some for all three quilt's from 
Cant' wait to get those so i can get started with all of his blocks.
I will be so glad when i get my Janome back, that kenmore sews but the thread breaks so much you feel like pulling  your hair out.
I hope to have something special to show you tomorrow so stay tuned.
Have a great  sewing day friends.

GIVEAWAY and pleats

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
Well i tried to quilt Jessie's quilt on the old kenmore, and the first couple of rows did ok.
But when i looked later, it was a mess!!!
As you can see it has little pleats all over the back.  I will have to undo all of it so i can quilt it when i get my janome back the first of Oct.

John Deere

Hi friends!
Beautiful bay , got cool last night.
We turned off the air and enjoyed the cool night air.
Look what came from Jo-Ann today,  hubby needs an apron for when he cooks but wanted a manly one so i ordered this to make him one.
Maybe i can get him an apron and a pillow from that 2 yards.
Any thing for my baby.  He is so good to me wanting me to have any thing i want.
Right now he is working on the old bathroom that we closed up when we redid the whole back of the house.
He had already turned his parents bedroom into a bathroom for us.

Giveaway on Monday

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
Got my borders on, both of them.
This is my backing fabric, i already have it sewed together for my backing.
Should be able to make a sandwich this weekend.  I love this backing fabric!
I think this is some more backing fabric that my sis gave me, she had a lot bought when she started buying muslin for her backs , so she gave these to me.  You know Anna's quilt backing came from her.
Maybe this afternoon i can work on my Christmas quilt.
Pardon the bad picture my other camera wasn't acting nice.  so i changed to the other that my daughter gave me.
Going to have a giveaway Monday for all my great friends all over the world.
Have a great sewing day friends.
