WIP Quilts on the Balcony

I gave our balcony a new look this evening. All the projects are quilt tops that are almost finished. Some of them need a border and all of them need quilting.

I guess I need to buckle down and get to work!

36th Wedding Anniversary and WIP – Sailboat III

Life …

Amy and Ashton took …

… Paul and me to Longhorn Steak House for our 36th wedding anniversary.

… as a Quilter

I started my third Sailboat quilt by sending my fabric through the printer and printing it in color. Then I ironed it to heat set the ink. I didn’t have any Bubble Jet Heat Set, so I just washed it anyway, and the blue faded away into the water. So now my challenge is to put color back into the piece using fabric and thread.

Here I’ve added some fabric and I think I’m ready now to add more color with thread.

Congratulations to the winner,  #43, of my 4 yards of fabric in my giveaway. Siouxzq64 said “I like Tweet the little goldfinch looks just like the ones which hop around my lilacs during the summer.”

Magnolia’s Guest Day Sewing

Life …

After Paul ate his delicious potato soup from Calvary Baptist Church’s fundraiser, he got up from the table, washed his container, filled it with milk, added chocolate Quik, and heated it in the microwave. Then he added a bunch … a whole bunch of marshmallows and heated it a little more, brought it to the table and enjoyed his 2nd bowl of ‘soup!’

… as a Quilter

Today was our annual Magnolia Guest Day Sewing. We had lots of visitors with a total attendance around 97. We had different projects from which you could choose to help.


Tying or knotting comforters.

Another comforter being tied.

Putting “cheer bundles” together as Christmas gifts for the Cherry Creek Mission in SD.

Tina spent lots of time pushing pins into my ironing board.

Sewing quilt blocks together and making simple receiving blankets for babies.

Mrs. Vernon visits with Thelma.

These ladies helped make ‘string’ blocks for a comforter top.

By the end of the day their 38 blocks made quite a show.

WIP -- The Start of Something New

I began a new project with this piece of fabric for my background.

I cut out 1 1/2” squares and then shaped them like a lily, thinking I would fuse them to my background fabric. I placed a few of the cut out lily shapes onto the background flowers and thought they didn’t show up enough.

Then Emily took the little tiny leftover triangles and fused them on to a yellow background here, and I love what she has going on.

So, I decided to change my background too.

I added a border to make it bigger and then …

… proceeded to lay the lily shapes on the yellow background. But … I just wasn’t happy with the way it looked.


So … I went back to my original idea, the flower background and laid more lily shapes onto it. Now I think I’m liking it!

And now I've added borders and finished the background.
