Cutting and Houston Bound

image

I am relaxing tonight by cutting out flowers from this old piece of fabric. I saw a fused project that “built” a picture out of pieces similar to this. So I will try it out, to see if I can duplicate something like it.

In a couple of days I will travel to Houston to go to the Quilt Show! Can hardly wait to see all the beautiful quilts!

Relax and Quilt On

image

I finally got back to quilting today. I did not work at the office yesterday, instead I helped my in-laws clear some fallen branches in their yard and cleaned out the flower beds.

Today I worked at the office, working on the software implementation.

I started the quilting on this striped top today about 6 pm, it is 9:30 pm at the moment and maybe 2/3 of it is done – not bad! I may be able to complete it this week – although I will attend three baseball games for one grandson. (So much fun)

I played with this quilt today also – I am happy with the result so far!

But now time to retire to sleep!

Stashing

image

I went stash diving and found several pieces, some just barely large enough, to fill in missing pieces. Now I am ironing and cutting one and sometimes two of each fabric in a 3.5″ square. Each color should have 7 to 8 squares. Some will have more, some less. For those color families that are lacking – I will duplicate one of the colors, or go back to the stash and see if there’s another fabric.

Filling In

image

I have a lot to fill in…..I started this as an “ends” and “beginners” so that I could have something under the machine needle all the time. I haphazardly cut 3.5 inch squares from leftover pieces. But I have enough sewn to start a plan. I will cut enough to fill in the missing colors. Then each block will be nine units with the cream between the short rows. I will somehow arrange the colors to follow the color wheel.

A lot to ponder! But first a stash dive to find missing colors! (The fun part)

New Addition

In less than 4 weeks I will have another grandson…that will make grandchild number seven…all boys!

So I have been making some crib sheets for the new arrival, some of these are flannel, some cotton…but all made with love.

It is off to the office this rainy morning.

New Block

This is the next block that I am working on, the block is the green “stripes” the beige with red cornerstones is the sashing.

This block is 14″ square finished, there will be 16 squares, and the finished quilt will be about 72″ square.
