  • Structure and Spontenaity top is finished

    I finished the top yesterday. Yesterday afternoon the cat and I laid the quilt out on the largest bed in the house and removed strings. The cat thought that trying to catch the scissors as I snipped was great entertainment. This morning the cat and I laid the quilt out on the patio floor. I used lawn chairs to anchor the corners and took measurements

  • Structure and Spontenaity underway

    I got all the cutting done last week. Yesterday and today I have been making blocks. I have the 2", 3", 4", and 5" wide rectangles sewn to the shadowing strips. The 6" rectangles are left to do. The next step after that will be to sew the rectangle columns together. Yesterday I was listening to on my mp3 player as I sewed. I

  • Structure and Spontenaity

    I have started a new quilt. Last week I sketched and colored and played till I arrived at a pattern. This will be a graduation quilt for my neighbor, Collin. We first met him as he was swinging on the play set in our back yard. We had just bought our house in Lebanon. This was 2001. Over the years we have enjoyed this fellow, played with him, attended

    This is the first round of borders for Susie Bradley's center. I used paper foundation piecing to make this border. The yellow and blue are from Susie. The green is from my stash. So far, so fun!

  • I Spy Quilt

    I Spy Quilt is made of hexagons. Each hexagon and half-hexagon is different. All fabric came from my stash except the University of Georgia fabric supplied by my sister and the backing fabric.

  • I Spy Quilt is Done

    Whew! The Grand Nephew arrived last week so I have spent lots of time in the sewing room since then. I always make a storage bag for the quilts I gift. After that was made I still had some backing fabric so I combined that with a piece of cotton flannel and made a receiving blanket. Now there is very little to add to the stash! I shipped it all this

  • I Spy quilt is basted

    Today was the day. I got the quilt basted! I like to baste with water soluble thread in the basting pattern demonstrated by Sharon Schaumbert. This quilt was so small that I did not use my boards. I was able to use bull dog clips and the edges of my little sewing table. Not a minute too soon because the little guy arrived on Monday!

  • I Spy a starched quilt back

    Finally ironed the backing fabric yesterday. A phone call with my sister lit a fire. She had dinner with the mom to be last week and learned that her history was for babies to come early. I hope to get it basted tomorrow.
