Now To Put It Together

I have finished the last block in "Sassy" and now there are like three borders (on the small side). First I must  sew the sashing strips on and then sew blocks together.

I really like this one! I also completed Block #12 that was given to us on Sunday nite. I am doing two sets, one in 30's prints and the other in Cherrywood fabric.

Mr. Sewwhat is making a noodle board for my daughter. We are going home to visit soon.  For those of you that do not know what a noodle board is, it sits on top of your stove and provides more counter space for working. (AKA-making noodles) But I think hers is going to be for hiding stove and more on the decorative side.

There are two handles on the sides, so you are able to lift off of stove more easily.

He is giving it some sort of aged and distressed look. Chit chat later, Martha.

Two Down and One To Go

Mr.Sewwhat and myself went to the Chainsaw Festival in Hackensack , MN. This is the first one we have attended. I will share some pics with you. These are carvings made with a chainsaw....

Now I have two more Sassy blocks to show you.

I have one more block to make before I can start to put them together, chit chat later,Martha.

Sassy Block #6

Block #6 is finished, now only three left to do.

I finished up my wool mat also and put a backing on it too!

It looks black but it is a dark blue backing.

We also had our applique group  meeting with all the blocks taken by members for our charity quilt.

Paula Murray and Ann Manly each took a block.

Kathy Potter took one block. She was working on a Sue Spargo bird block.

She has a lovely work satchel which she decorated the top of....

Sharon Linders came and she took two blocks. She was working on her Buttermilk Basin sew a-long blocks....

Elly Knold took a block and worked on it while there.

Merrily Mondo was in and out so fast I did not get to take a picture of her but she took two blocks.  Unfortunately she had a funeral to go to. Chit chat with you later,Martha.

Working On

I went to working on my quilt "Sassy " with Kaffe Fasset fabrics. I ha been working on this while hand stitching my "Wooly Critters quilt"

wooly critters

These are three  of the blocks for"Sassy".

So I have four blocks left to finish with the borders.

I also made two microwave bowl holders...

 I kept one and sent the other to my mother along with the pattern because she had not seen one before. Tomorrow we have our applique group at"Colorz Quilt Shop".  I will try and remember to take my camera and take you a few pics.  Martha.

A Finish

Yes I finished my "Gypsy Wife" quilt it is now residing with the quilter for the next three weeks. However I did not forget to take a pic for you. I also convinced my quilt holder to help me! It was my birthday , so I used guilt.

This was challenging and fun! I enjoyed using Jen Kingwell's fabric line and her pattern.

I would  like to share with you a cute little sewing gift given to me by  my friend Connie....

This is a small light that fits on your finger and directs a shot of light where ever you are hand sewing! So cute and it really works well!  You can replace the rubber band if it breaks, it slides in and out easily.  So neat, really love  this! Thank you again Connie. Chatter later,Martha!  I am linking up with

Labor Day

I have  working on my "Gypsy Wife" quilt today and have finished section eight ....

And section nine...

and section ten...

I put all three sections together and got this...

My quilt top holder is holding up section one thru six ....

Hopefully I will be able to get the two pieces together and put the border on this week.  She doesn't show hers with one , however she does give two suggestions for a border.  I think I would like a  small pink polka dot border.  I think I will have it quilted with a simple all-over design because with all this movement no one will probably see the quilting. I will get back to you with a pic once I have it all together, Martha.

A Little Farther

I have finished section six and seven on my "Gypsy Wife " quilt top. I am totally amazed at how easily this goes together with just pics and no words to assemble.

These pics are of section six.  Next is section seven....

I will put these together with the rest and see if I can rustle up a quilt top holder for you. Chatter later, Martha.
