A finish hurrah

This finish is brought to you by the fact that once I had pulled out the pattern and fabric for my Finish a Long post, I didn’t want to put everything away again. I have to admire the detail and thought that went into the directions, the sewing went quite smoothly. I find however that […]

Goals for Q4 in the Finish-a-long

It’s official, I have once again increased my number of quilts in progress. Therefore I hereby pledge allegiance to the #ridiculouslylongfallist and let’s sew! In no particular order: Sugar Block Club quilt–top and backing done, need to baste, quilt, and bind. It’s about 88″square. Halloween QST quilt. This was the Bonnie Hunter leader and ender […]

Q3 Finish a Long Results

What’s that you hear? Laughter? Oh yes, that’s me, laughing at my results. What were they, well I’m glad you asked. I made the pieces for 2 quilt alongs this summer, so of course there wasn’t much time left for anything else. Sugar Block Club quilt – the top is finished, I am slowly trying […]

Just keep sewing 

Lest you think I am some sort of super mom, I thought I would share a few tricks that help me keep my sewing progressing even in the summer.  None of these are amazingly unique. 1.  Laundry is my biggest secret.  I do the laundry, which is where all my sewing items are, so every […]

Results-Q2 in the Finish a Long 

The linky party is open, which of course means it’s time to squeeze in a last-minute finish! Or not. I pulled out my Christmas placemats but it’s not looking promising for a finish. Here is my list of goals for this quarter. Status: Modern Butterfly – done! See this post for more info. En provence […]

Leftovers pillow finish 

A visit to our shared ownership cottage this past weekend allowed a little handwork so I was able to finish the binding on my Grand Illusion Leftovers pillow.   This was a goal on my Q1 Finish-a-long list, as well as a goal this week with To-do Tuesday. Along with that, I progressed the assembly […]

Roundabout – Q1 in the Finish A Long

Starlight, Stardark quilt Quilting is in progress, this is achievable. And a bonus shot of some of the […]

Tumbler Quilting Excitement

Exciting enough that once I added watching “The Crown” to chatting with others via #saturdaynightcraftalong on instagram, it was practically done. I mentioned previously that I used fleece to back it with. Well, I learned some very important things. 1. Although the thrifted fleece throw with the hockey sticks (how Canadian!) was cheap ($2.00), it […]

Goals for Q4 in the Finish-A-Long

Well, I seem to be continuing my trend of finishing one quilt per quarter. However at the rate which I start new quilts, that pace really needs to pick up.  So I’m going to join the #ridiculouslylongFALlist club with Helen (Archie the Wonder Dog) and Leeanne and Jess and everyone else! So here goes, my […]

Yuma pillow finish (TGIFF)

Finally it was time to finish this pillow off (see tutorial for adjusting the pattern here).   And it was a good choice to practice free motion quilting on my new Pfaff before i finished my MQG challenge quilt. Once it was quilted, it got set aside again waiting for a back and a pillow […]
