New Quilt and Finishing Another

Hi friends!
Started making blocks for the Quilt Of Valor that I am making this year. The bigger one looks strange because a white star is making one triangle look like it's not all there.
Haven't done much sewing in a few days, resting up from all the graduating!
Last night I got set up and started quilting Landon and Tori's Quilt. Hoping to finish by next week so I can get the binding on.
Haley's Birthday is soon and want to get these to them before then.
Remember this one, I put it back to do Jackson's and Carolyn's . But it's finish up time.
Have a great day

Memorial Day

Hi friends!
After resting Sunday afternoon, we both took a nap because we don't rest any where but home, I cooked and the next day we went to my brother's for our annual cook out.
The kids played in the pool.
Howard and Margaret has a great place for a party.
A few had already left when I got around to taking pictures. Sis sitting there with a hat on two days after surgery. Said she had drove to town!
Yesterday we went to town  for a few groceries and rested.
Today we have a funeral to attend. Tommy's cousin that I made the wheelchair quilt for last year and Sis and I ran through pouring rain to go into the other end of the nursing home and give it to her.  She was 87 I believe.
Got to get back to my machine this afternoon.

Landon and Tori's quilt

Hi friends!
Landon and Tori's quilt. I had to add on to one end to get it long enough. I think mostly because I turned it the wrong way, The backing!
Then I turned it over and starched and Ironed it. Put it next to my quilting machine to quilt next week. 

Then I sandwiched the wheelchair quilt , this will be my second one and I have the top made for the 3th one.
Got to start on a quilt of valor soon and I have a donated top to quilt for our vets to.
We plan on making a lot of vets happy this year.

I bought this for my quilt I am making to give. Plus I bought some when we went quilt shopping with our sewing Q-Bees.
Should have plenty for this quilt so I can get started on it next week.
One more picture of the quilt that I finished yesterday.
After all that fighting it turned out pretty good.
The red and black are school colors.
Have a great weekend

T-Shirt Quilt.

Hi friends!
Got two sides on!
The bottom that I had to take back off. But I finally got it on.
Took all day yesterday to get the ends lined up right.
Already cut my binding and ironed it today but got to wind a bobbin to sew it down.
It's not queen sized but I managed to get it pretty good sized for the amount of t-shirts I had to work with.
Going with black binding!
I may do some more top- stitching for a finish after I get the binding sewed down.
Getting the red and black to meet!
Now I have to get Landon's and Tori's ironed and quilted. May not finish it this month but it will be close.
That's for tomorrow. Have a good day

Quilts and Tomato's

Hi friends!
After fighting with that border on Thursday , Friday afternoon I worked on making that big block into one big enough for a wheelchair quilt.
It will make a bright wheelchair quilt.
I didn't have enough basting spray over the weekend so couldn't sandwich them. This morning it came in the mail so maybe today?
Worked on this yesterday. It now has two borders and I sewed down  the bottom border but took it back out last night.
Just didn't line up right!
Tommy got our Tomato's in the ground.
We went this morning to get some mulch to put around them.
He said that was all he was planting, twelve tomatoes. Doesn't make sense to plant anything else . if we want something we can always buy it fresh from some ones garden. But how often do you eat squash.
We have spent years growing it and giving it away.
Have a great day

Our Reunion

Hi friends!
We had our family reunion yesterday.
We had lost our Aunt Eddie and Sherry's husband Tony.
Sherry and her family were in Fla.
Some had to work but we had a few we hadn't seen in years.
But we had quite a crowd.
Cheryl taking one with Kim.
Our newly weds!
These two comes every year but they have grown so much. Jimmy and Ellen's grands and their father.
A good crowd.
So good to see the ones that got to come.

Hi friends!
I took me all afternoon yesterday to get this one border on!
Don't you hate days like that when every thing you sew you have to rip out?
Got a package in the mail this morning, Thanks Dawn.   HERE . I had sent her some blue scraps and she returned this one , making me this cute pouch. Isn't that adorable. all sparkelys.
Will keep in my purse to carry precious things.
Imogene sent me a message yesterday that Walmart had fabric on sale.
The white was one dollar a yard. Thanks Imogene.
Though the other would go good in my quilt of valor.
Have a great week end

Wheel Chair Quilt

Hi friends!
This measures 25 by 50 so I added two strips one on each side.
Then it measured 37 buy 50, a tiny bit longer. But when I wash it it may not be that big.  They always shrink some .
So one wheelchair top made , Think the next one will be stars.  We are suppose to make three each so that would make me three.
Look what came yesterday!
Was suppose to get here today, so I can go ahead and sandwich it. After I pick out a backing!
Got to go to town and pick up a few things for our family reunion this coming Sunday. This is my mother's side of the  family. My mother is gone but we ,Aunt's and cousins, are all close. When we are gone nobody will do this I am sure!  My kids don't go, some of my cousins kids don't come either.
But we were raised together and the next generation hasn't been . After they got grown they are all over the place.
We drug then to the reunions as long as we could.
Have a great day

Good Night Irene

Hi Friends!
Got that last row added and now I will have to wait until my battening gets here.  Suppose to get here tomorrow. I have run slap out.
So I started working on another wheelchair quilt.. Making charm square good night Irene blocks.
This one measures 25 by 25 so a white border on each side would make it at 36 and two stacked would be fifty in length and they need to be 45. Don't think they will mind a little longer.
I may just make two  wheel chair quilt of these since I have more blocks started.
I am also running out of white so I am going to have to get some more of that.
I walked yesterday but Tommy didn't walk with me.
This is what he did.
He hates for limbs to get in his way when he mows so he trimmed up several in the yard. I didn't help him because I needed to vacuum so I did the whole house.
Took advantage of him being out side so I could get some work done.
Guess I will be making another good night Irene block this afternoon.
Took my car to the shop this morning early, because we will need it weekend after next to go to graduations. We will drive Tommy's baby until I get it back.
He bought his truck new the year before we got married and the only time in the last few years that we went on a trip in it the transmission nearly fell out. Had to have it rebuilt.
Makes me not trust it.
We haven't had any more trouble out of it since  but still......
Have a good one
