Projects -- Daisies, Sailboat V, and Teryn's Quilt

I'm still working on my "Daisies" from the workshop that I took with Susan Cleveland.

Sailboat V is now complete.

This piece developed from a picture I had taken of my nephew, Scott. I tweaked it on the computer to make a sketch and then printed it on fabric. Using black, I thread painted the sketch and then quilted it.

Sailboat V -- $50 SOLD
8.5" X 11.0 "


I have finally finisihed quilting this crib size quilt for our grandson, Teryn. Now ... on to binding it.

Check the linky party at "Off the Wall Friday."

Life and Sailboat IV

Life ...
Paul and Scott work on Scott's drone.

Scott handles the controls.

Gabriel is mixing paint for ...

... his Legal Eagle wings.

Quinten thought it was a privilege for me to help move equipment. He said that I GET to, not have to, pull the combine header. My jaw was tight and I was tense for the whole 8 miles.

My little "Sailboat IV" is part of SAQA's Trunk G on display at the Rosenzweig Art Center in Columbus, MS this month.

And here is Scott again on Sailboat IV that I started HERE.
I like the effect the two layers of black tulle over the water give the piece.

Celtic Solstice and Sailboat Quilts

Life …

Paul with “the boys.” “The girls” all went away for Christmas.

Quinten is glad for some meat for their freezer.

… as a Quilter

I have finished step 1 and step 3 of Bonnie Hunter’s Celtic Solstice mystery quilt. I’m afraid the lavender and green don’t contrast enough!

In the mean time I pulled out my Sailboat III that I started earlier HERE and put it on my design wall (Patchwork Times). Perhaps I need to wash it again to get the green trees and green grass to bleed some more. It just seems to have too much going on. Any suggestions?

And now I have started Sailboat IV. My idea here is to use the same fabric in the reflection as I use in the sky, grass, and sailboat. Then I want to lay black toile over the water part which you can hardly see at the dark brown fabric in the picture below. Maybe I should add another layer or two to make the water darker. What do you think? After quilting it, I’ll add the top sailboat.

Design Wall Monday and Celtic Solstice Mystery Quilt

Life …

I accompanied Paul driving a bus load of youth to Bay Springs to sing Christmas carols for residents at a nursing home.

… as a Quilter

On my design wall…

… I’ve pinned my continuing “Sailboat” series that needs to be finished.

I’ve started working on clue #3 of Bonnie Hunter’s “Celtic Solstice” mystery quilt even though …

… step #1 is only partially completed and step #2 hasn’t even been started.

And the winner of my Fabric Giveaway is #130, Robin. Congratulations!

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.”

Tina, Guests, and Sailing II Art Quilt

Life …
I took care of Tina one day this week. Her favorite puzzle piece was the motorcycle.

Building towers with my thread kept her occupied for a while.

Paul’s niece, Melissa & Scott and Kaylie from Michigan came to visit her family over the holidays.

We invited our family and a few from her family for supper. Her grandma Louise, her momma Miriam, her SIL Laura and …

… their spouses who had no problem not posing for a picture.

Georgi stayed for a ‘sleep over’ party.

Paul got a 10 point buck this evening.

… as a Quilter

There is still time to leave a comment for your chance to win my 4 yards of 100% cotton quilting fabric here.

I have decided now to make a series of Sailboat art quilts. So I took this picture, which is a little different from the other one …
Sailboat 4c

… and made it into another small art quilt, Sailboat II. It measures 7”X10”.


The back is finished with “fast finished triangles” and is ready for mounting.

Sailboat and Sailboat II

So now … I’m getting ideas for a third “Sailboat.”
