November 2012

November was a busy month. I had to get four quilts finished. I was so relieved and tired when I finished the last quilt. Since then I have been taking things kinda slow, I am keeping up with my BOW that Rhonda is hosting.


Block #7 is embroidered but I have not sewn the attic window on to it.


I made the boys pillow cases. This had to be the easiest pattern for pillow cases.
Moda Turnover
I was looking for something one day and this Moda Turnover that I have had forever and remembered a tutorial I had saw using the turnovers, she used a charm pack and cut them in half. Well I had to make one. I need at least one more package of turnovers for the center of the quilt. This will be Chelsi's Christmas quilt next year. I think I've had the turnovers for two years so I hope I can find more.

If you look on the right side of the photo you can see the backing I used for this quilt.


I like the back of Greg's quilt as well as I do the front.
I'm kinda at a crossroad about blogging and I'm not sure how or if I will continue. I do enjoy recording my doings.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Staying out of trouble

Well, at least I'm trying to stay of trouble. LOL I have Nikolas, Aiden and Chelsi's quilts finished and I'm working on Greg's. I'm sure Greg's quilt is growing. Whew!

At night I am doing hand embroidery. Every Tuesday I start on the BOW that Rhonda is doing. So fun!
Once I get my BOW done I'm working on Birdie Stitches.
January's block
February's block
I'm about half done with March. I'm thinking of doing the quilt as you go method when I quilt this quilt. Have any of you tried that method?

Train quilt

Remember this train fabric for Nikolas a quilt.

I was trying hard to keep it hid from Nikolas but he found it. I tried explaining to him about the blocks I was making to go with the fabric but the more I explained the more upset he got.
So I did the only thing I knew to do. I slapped some batting between the two pieces of fabric, quilted it and put a binding on.

I think Nikolas is going to love it!

Two more to quilt and I will be ready for Christmas morning.

Happy quilting!

Hand embroidery BOW #3

This the block for week 3 and it was perfect for my area. The wind has howled all week, but we had great temps.

I've been looking at fabric to make my attic window with but I can't quite decide. I still have time. I'm also thinking about doing this as a quilt as you go so I can try out the technique.

Happy quilting!

The next time...... see Chelsi's tea party it will be quilted and ready to place in her chubby little hands on Christmas morning. I ran into some bumps along the way but it all worked out. The quilt finished size is 46" x 60:. No I did not put a pink border on the top on purpose.
Happy quilting!
