Kristian's Quilt

Hi friends!
Started on Kristian's quilt yesterday.4
She came by Monday and brought a t-shirt for the middle.
She will graduate in 10 weeks! So grand-maw is making her a quilt with her school colors.
I showed her two shades of grey and she decided she wanted a check-a-board effect.
Berry college colors are grey , navy and white.
Hubby found this on the back porch this morning.
He said " I think you have a broom!"
This girls doesn't love brooms!
Two bolts of fabric, 100% cotton, eight yards each!
Fount them priced for 12 dollars each! of course with shipping it went up but even so less than three dollars a yard.
From Marshal Dry Goods!
Love it!

Tatum's Quilt and a finished Top

Hi friends!
Been working here and there on Tatum's t-shirt quilt.
A while back I cut the fronts out and put interfacing on them.
So now I am putting them together to QAUG.
She was in plays at North  Hall from the time she was 6 or 7. Then she got into producing them.
Now she is at Oklahoma studding that . They have already put one on , she shared a small excerpt but only the back of my baby girls head was all it showed!
We went to one of her plays when she was little and bought a video but it just showed her with every one else. I wanted one following her around!!!!! Just her!!!!!
Another one!
Finished Angels Top , now to set up the table and get it sandwiched!
Have a good day!

Hi friends!
One row added to the side! Thinking of doing a half row just like this onto the other side.
Nice and long on this side but:
Not quit as long on the other.
Maybe long enough but they do draw up  a little after washing.
So I will add another half row! Want it big enough for a larger bed if she gets one.
My tulips are coming up !
But it's suppose to get cold again next week. Want bother those!
Have a great week end.

Hi friends!
Made some more tri-angles yesterday, made enough to make a row down on side but didn't get it added.
Got this fixed!
I want to add one more block on each row before I go any further.
This one will be a big queen.
May be the last one I get to make for my Angel so I want it big enough to last her a long time.
We juat stayed home yesterday , I sewed and Tommy worked on the bath room.
Some finish work on the ceilings.
We still like putting down a few pieces of tile and buying another door that opens out before he will be finished with it.
Have a good one

Angels and another

Hi friends!
Thanks Lisa for pointing out my upside down row. Not only that the whole thing was upside down.
So it was the last row that I upside down  on Monday , didn't feel good and worried about Tommy !
Took it out last night , haven't fixed it yet, hopefully today.
Earlier yesterday I gave in to the desire to use up some strips.
This may be a long term quilt because I am going to use strips from quilts I have made , maybe!
And a lot of tote diving will have to take place when I run out of the ones I have gathered!
Put two reds together but it will stay because I am just grabbing what I find and adding them from some I have stuffed into a bag on my sewing table.
But one completed, don't really know where this is going  yet. We will find out together.
have a good one, 70's today in Ga.
Hugs Babs

Angel's Quilt

Hi friends!
Didn't do much sewing yesterday , hubby was feeling real bad so I was feeling his forehead off on on!
He never was warm so maybe not the flu. Feeling better today!
I did get that row sewed on and :
A strip added.
Not sure weather to go grey at this stage or add some more of the blue.
Thinking to of adding another block at the end of each row!
Make it good and wide.
Make up my mind after while when I go into may sewing room.
When I put that book case in my sewing room aver the weekend I took all the under fat eight and put it into a large shopping bag and now have a big bag of more scraps.
My roses are looking so good!
I put them in my mother's pitcher that I got after she 2004.
Hope you have a great day!
Wish the sun would shine here.

Our Weekend and Angels Quilt

Hi friends!
we had a pretty quite weekend. Kim and Richard came by to see us for a while yesterday.
I made another row of these for Angels quilt.
I had two book cases in the library so put every thing on one and brought the other into my quilting room and started putting fabric and quilt books on it.
Tommy will get me some things so it's attached to the wall and then I will finish.
He worked on the bathroom Friday. We are going to have to get a door that opens out so it want brake the doors on the shower.
Sat. we went to walmart to get my new carpet cleaner because my 30 year old one had died. You want  get 30 years out of any thing made in this day and time.

Haven't opened it yet but when he gets finished making a mess I will! Got a smaller one, easier for me to lug around and all the carpet we have is 8 feet by 10 feet rugs . I have three of those and several throw rugs . No carpet ! After seeing my sister-in-laws took up with all the dirt under it I want use anything thing I can't clean under.
It's hard enough to keep a house clean and sew to , mostly sew!
It's great being retired!
Have a good one

Angels Quilt and Spring

Hi Friends!
Another row!
Looks like I need to cut some more!
They still say we are in a drought!
Can you believe that?
You sink into the soaked ground  every where.
Just because we didn't get much last month.
Signs of spring.
And buttercups are every where the sun hit's. mine or on the North end of our house so doesn't bloom until later. I have seen them by the road.
But the tulips are growing good.
Year before last we didn't get any rain and my hosta died so the rest of them are coming up good.
They came up first so shaded all the rest.
Have a good weekend

Angel's Quilt

Hi friends!
I did a bunch of sewing the blocks together yesterday.
The shower is in use!
But the tile needs to be replaced where they took it up and the wall at the other end needs  tile putting up and putting a new door up.. Then he will be finished . The door we had up opens the wrong way for that shower. , but his back is acting up!
He told s-i-l yesterday that I loved it so much I was taking two baths a day.
I was!
I really missed my showers! Really believe that it gets your blood flowing to all parts of your body and makes you feel better. Helps with pain to!
Going to make a row today to see how many it takes to make a queen sized quilt.Then I will either make more or start putting rows together.
I got a sweet card and these roses this morning, he wanted to know if I wanted to go out and eat but I said no ! We will just have a steak dinner here.
No flu germs!
Happy Valentines .
