What I’m Working On…

As I told you, I haven’t been feeling the best.  I’ve been putzing around the house but not really accomplishing a lot.  One of my favorite things to do is play on EQ (Electric Quilt) but I typically don’t allow much time to do that.  I decided to indulge.

I had seen a picture of a vintage quilt on Instagram that I liked.  It looked like a good quilt that would use up a lot of my strips. Here is a picture of the quilt.  Oh, be still my heart.  It’s a scrappy girl!!
I played around on EQ.  I came up with this…I modified the chain blocks to make two different kinds.

Here it is the no stitching lines.

I modified it a bit more and came up with this… Continue reading

What I’m Working On…

When I last left you, I asked what you thought I should work on.  There was such a wide variety of answers.  I loved reading them all.

When I last left you my Remainders quilt was this far along…

My green leftovers quilt needed borders…

…and I was itching to start sewing some strings to make this.

So what did I do???? Continue reading

What I’m Working On…

When I last left you with my quilting, I was working my way out of a sewing funk.  I think it happens to all of us.  For me, family, holidays, and my health stuff had taken me away from the sewing room…but happily not to far.

I ended up finishing my baby quilt.  Oh my.  I’m totally in love with this… You can tell by the smile on my face.

It’s not finished-finished.  It’s just a top.

I took it outside and snapped a couple of pictures of it.

No matter what picture I took, it didn’t look as good as the quilt looks in person.

This picture is the best I have to show how the blocks almost look like they glitter… Continue reading

What I’m Working On…

I was in the sewing room feeling a little downhearted.  It’s been so long since I was able to really sew.  I feel like my sewing room is standing still in time and I’m moving on.  I don’t love that feeling.  I feel disconnected and out of touch with my projects.

I thought about just walking out and settling in with some cross-stitch.  It would be so easy to do.  But I love quilting too.  I just needed to dig and start in on something.

To be honest, the out-of-touch feeling makes me want to start something new…but NO.  I can’t do that.  I’ve been on a roll of getting things done before I had my break from quilting.  I needed to do something even if I didn’t have the enthusiasm for it.  If I did something, maybe the enthusiasm would come back…so, I settled on working at the longarm and my Bitcoin quilt.

I got passes done, rolled the quilt forward, and discovered this… Continue reading
