Gaven's Quilt

Hi friends!
I rounded up all my boy fabric and the rest of the Paw Patrol fabric to make Gaven a big boy quilt.
He will love all the balls, most boys do! Paw Patrol is a favorite of his. So hopefully this will work .
I am thinking a nice solid in between to calm down the blocks. All those balls are nearly to much. Temp.s are suppose to get into the forties today so I look forward to a walk.
For two day I have  spent all my  time inside, Tommy does the outside errands.
About to go stir crazy!!
My quilt is still waiting!
 Was planning on working on it last night but just read instead.
I must be getting to the end of this series! I have read so many of them.
Daisy Dalrimpie , Really enjoying them. Not to gory!
Have a good one

Shania's Quilt

Hi friends!
Our little Shania turned 3 the beginning of January.
Her parent took her out for her favorite.
I made her a quilt and they came by here so I went out and they woke her up , she has the sniffles  .I gave it to a very sleepy her that told me "I love u"as she pulled it to her.
Late Monday her mother Kari tagged me with this:
Her bed with her quilt on it.
Hadn't made her one since I made her baby quilt.
Need to make a couple of more for my g-gs that are getting bigger.
I did do a little work yesterday:
Bad picture but I did get it starched and ironed so I can start quilting it.
Finished the top in early Nov. but had to put it up to finish all the Christmas quilting.
So that should be my next finish.

Just a little every day.
I have a idea for Landon and Tori's quilt.

My quilt wall is full again so one more block and these will go into the tote for me to fill it again.

Friday Finish

Hi friends!
I have a finish!
Shania's quilt is finish. Just needs all the threads trimmed.
No wind out today so all my pictures look alike.
I finished binding by hand last night and then sewed the binding down two times to make it secure for our sweet three year old  baby.
Maybe next week I can post pictures with her with it.
My strip quilt is moving along.
Their are seven 12 inch blocks on each row and the fall on each side is 14 inches.
Need to do two more rows and it should be good.
Have a great week and get ready for the freeze next week
Stay safe

Jackson's Quilt

Hi friends!
Started cutting up Jackson's t- shirts yesterday. Some have bigger than 12 inch sayings on the front of back so I will be working with three sizes .
Looks like I will have plenty to work with.
A big pile.
When we went to Walmart I got another yard of Paw Patrol to Make Gaven a quilt  soon.

Got the binding sewed down on this and trimmed so it's on the couch waiting for me to sew it down.
I will work on Jackson's and cut the rest,I hope, of his up today plus I plan to walk since the sun is shining.

Good Buy

Hi friends!
Found this white on sale at Walmart yesterday for 2 dollars a yard so bought it all.
Did a little quilting on Shania's quilt.
Mostly I read after I walked, It was cold!
Finished this. Was very good. She has had her Twins.
Last week Tommy was very busy, he cleaned the gas heater in the dining room , was not happy with it so we went and bought some supplies and he replaced it. It was over 40 years old.

Nice new heater.
Stay warm

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
