New Project

                                I have started a new project. 

Some pieces are sewn down but not all. Chatter later, Martha. It is a pattern by Edyta Sitar and fabric is Blue Sky by her design also.

Finish and BOM

I finished quilting my Frivol quilt and got the binding on it. Washed it and pulled it out of the dryer just now!

All nice and warm and cuddly. Now I need to sew the label on the back.

Today the first step of the quilt-a-long with  came down today. I am only doing the table runner/topper , so I only had to do eight 9 patch blocks.

Today is also Friday and Farmhouse Threads should have their next block out for their quilt-a-long. I will have to check that out. Chatter with you later, Martha.

Backing Made

                         I got my backing put together.

I also got my three layers spray basted together. I zig zagged three fairly large pieces of leftover batting together. This was in an attempt to use up some scrap batting from larger quilts. Hopefully tomorrow will yield some time to start quilting on domestic machine. Plus some hand quilting also after that. There were two embroidery floss hanks included with this frivol.  A blue and a green to match fabrics.  I will check in later with results. Martha

More Progression and a Finish!

I have  a few pics of rows being added and a top finish!

                         This is all four blocks sewn together

        This is with another row of geese sewn on all four sides.

                 This is a 3 inch background border all around.

Today I also cut out two small flannel projects for my son-in-law. But I will show you those when I get a little bit of sewing done on them.  As for this 50 1/2" square flimsy I think I will use both hand quilting and machine quilting. That's for another day. My husband is helping out with the dog sled races in Remer today. Today is my do whatever I want day! Bye for now, Martha.

A little Progress

I have gotten a little farther with my Frivol #4 called Lakeland. Give you a few pics of my progression....

I really like making flying geese, here's a pic of a mini quilt with them.

Still have to make a few more rounds of them. My kids birthdays are this coming week, they are four years and four days apart! We are going to see them for their birthdays!

Frivol #4

I have started a new project and it is Frivol #4. There are four blocks that make up this small 50" x 50" quilt.  It came in this pretty tin.

It is called Lakeland which is very appropriate for Minnesota don't you think? It has flying geese surrounding one background square. So to make my 154 flying geese I am using my Deb Tucker ruler and making four at a time. Which makes this task a little smoother .  

These are the beginnings of my four blocks. What are you working on? Something to brighten up your winter days? Martha

More Blocks

I have 15 more blocks for Thomas Fire Relief  by Ventura Modern Quilt Guild.  

Today on the blog of From My Carolina Home  there is a tutorial on one way of putting these together to make a 72" x 84" quilt. Which is 42 blocks put together six blocks wide and seven blocks long. Mind you the guild is just asking for blocks , nothing more. But it is nice to see at least one layout. Check it out. Click on the link below There are directions for the block on an earlier post.The blog is also under my sidebar of blogs  I follow. Martha
