Monday Making



After a successful auction of SMALL quilts (table mats) last weekend,
I had a couple of requests from the losers.
LOL!

I couldn't repeat the small quilt exactly...
But I tried to come close.

Scraps and orphan blocks just CAN'T be
repeated EXACTLY!!
;)


What are YOU making this week??
Thanks to ALL who link up
and share!!!

Finishes

When it comes to sewing...
It was a GOOD week!!

It helps to have a few things
ALMOST finished!!!
Haha.

The first quilt was almost done.
It just needed a border.
This is my third graduation quilt.

Then...
I added binding to my hand woven baby blanket!
I added a soft pink cotton binding.

When that was done....
I added a border to this scrappy, scrappy quilt!
My fourth and last graduation quilt.
NOW.... to get them ALL quilted!!!

It was a miracle that the Saw tooth border fit perfectly!!!

Getting all these ALMOST finished things DONE
makes me want to BEGIN something VERY soon!!!

My wheels are churning!!

Hello quilting friends!

I'm home from a busy weekend and all I can think about is
SLEEP.
:)


I may open this "BRAND new"
Vintage package of embroidered quilt squares this week.
I found this pack at a thrift store for $2.

There are enough squares to make a QUEEN sized quilt!
***OOPS! I just checked.***
NOT. queen. sized. 
:/
Don't ever give me an important job.
Haha!!!

I have to say...
I haven't seen a quilt made with these yet!
Have YOU?

Link up and share about what YOU'RE making this week!

A Parade













All the table mats are ready to go!
The quilted lines have been stitched.
The binding has been attached.
The car is packed.
It's time to roll these pretty little quilts up
and get moving!

+++++++

These table mats are all ABOUT 20" square.
I am donating them to a women's retreat
where they will be auctioned off.

Happy stitching friends!!!

Monday Making

At my house there are graduation quilts to be made.
This is my most recent and hopefully 
the last of  FOUR graduation quilts I'm making this year.

I LOVE giving these to the high school graduates at my church.
:)
At my house there is also a lot of GREEN!!!

Lots of garden produce that needs a PLAN.
A MEAL plan!

Wish me luck!

This big ol' cabbage found a home in Yakisoba
(recipe found in an old cookbook of mine-
and a nice big bowl of coleslaw!

I'm using all this green in our meals.
I sneak in Spinach, kale, chard, celery, lettuce etc...
into every meal.

I'm convinced all this green is keeping us healthy.

O.K. friends
What are YOU making this week???

Monday Making

This is a partial look at my stack of Table mats.
There are SEVEN that have been quilted!
YEAH!
:)
That means there are
SEVEN that need binding.
and....
 SEVEN that need ME to roll that binding over the raw edge
and HAND stitch it down!!!
:/

I'm not sure there are enough meetings
and doctor appointments to give me the TIME
I "need" to do all that hand stitching.

I just MAY have to resort to netflix as I stitch.
Poor me.
LOL.

I also finished a HAND WOVEN baby blanket this week.
This project makes me SMILE!!!

This blanket was warped up with a few colorful yarns
and THEN....
I wove with WHITE yarn to soften the color.

I hope to add binding to this blanket in between the table mats this week!
I COULD turn the raw edge there under.
 But this time I want to try a binding.

Weaving has been a learning experience for me.
and I LOVE learning HANDS ON!

What are YOU making this week??

Thank you, quilting friends, for joining me each week!
It's always FUN to see what everyone's creating.

This table mat is number TEN!
woohoo!

Ten was my goal.
Goal. MET.
I made a bunch of hour glass blocks in my daughter's colors...
and before your know it....
I had a TABLE mat!

I will be quilting them all
and I should be done in time for the retreat
coming up in April!

(I am making table mats for an upcoming church retreat.
They decorate the cafeteria tables
during the weekend and ladies bid on them.)
