Not a Great Start – falq1finish falq2list

So close yet so not done. It’s all good though because it will just make the next quarter finishes that much sweeter.

Mountains Majesty saw some real progress with all of the blocks constructed, put into rows and the rows into a top. When I layed it out though, it isn’t as wide as I want it. For bed quilts I like the quilt to cover the flat sheet or at least all of the mattress. My fix for this is to add a 3 1/2 in border all around. I’m good with that, it will be off to the quilter before the month ends.

Fretwork. Heavy sigh, I just have a few more inches to quilt, and then I need to make a binding and apply it. There is a reason I send my quilting out. This too will be done before the beginning of May.

My third piece was Karen’s Sunflowers. I need to get more pearle cotton for the knots and quilting. I will have to dedicate time to this daily once the thread comes in.

Onto Quarter 2! My blue and brown pineapple quilt made with neckties is in the queue. There are about a dozen blocks completed and I need about 4 dozen more. Then they will be sewn together and sent off to the longarmer.

More blue and brown necktie work. These are little squares to go together to make pillow tops. They are little things about 3″ each and go together quickly. About 100 of them make a pair of pillows. I’m going to see how far I get with the ridiculous amount of tie scrap I have.

This poor thing has been hanging on the back of my powder room door awaiting attention. My intent is to make about 60 more blocks put them together have it quilted and donate it to charity. Many of these fabrics came from a facebook scrap exchange from over 10 years ago. It’s time this project got done.

My studio organizing has not been very successful either. I better invite my sister down, that will motivate me. Don’t want to have her see my mess!

Hoping for good weather, everyone to stay healthy, maybe an opportunity to safely sewcialize by the end of the next quarter.

Stay Safe

Piece.

  1. Company does inspire cleaning. Your tie scraps are lovely and you have found so many ways to use them!

    • I can find so many other things to do than clean. And it just needs to be done – over and over again. LOL With the weather improving though, it does help with my motivation. Ties call to me. I try to finish one tie quilt a year, as I have been collecting them for a very long time. Thank you for stopping by.

    6 year old Jackson and I were having a discussion about the word “inspiration” shortly before I saw this post. If I had seen this just before, I would have said that my friend Diane is an inspiration. You done some great quilts. It looks like you’ve quilted miles on Fretwork. I know we should be organized, but you seem to be working it out!

    • You fill my heart dear friend! Try as I might, the whole organization thing is a challenge to me. And you are so good for me as I believe we are cut from the same cloth. I am beginning to think I thrive more in chaos!
