Stashbusters September Check In

Time for Stashbusters check in! Have you had a good month of sewing in August? I did pretty good this month with my Quilted Jacket project and two small quilts. For Fabric In, I did well, only coming home with three fat quarters from a guild game. But I also donated three fat quarters to …

Quilted Jacket Sew Along – Extras!

The jacket was done, and I just could not bring myself to throw away the bits left over from the pattern cutting step. This doesn't look like much, but I just had to figure out something to do with these. Settle in for a long and picture heavy post as I finish everything left. Now, …

Stashbusters – August Check In

Time to check in for our Stashbuster Challenge! Once again, I had to add fabric, but that is OK. We all have to do that from time to time, and we have to keep the fabric shops in business. I did manage to get more 'out' than 'in' this time. For fabric in, I got …

Finishing the Guild Challenge Quilt

This weekend, the guild challenge quilt was finished, just in time to turn in this week. I got a little creative with the quilting instead of doing my usual pantograph. Our longarm association is going to do a series of programs for custom designs, and I got a little charged up to do some. So, …

Sewing and Stamping

What fun we had yesterday, sewing and chatting on Zoom. Thank you to all who were able to come. I really needed some quilty fun and I enjoyed the day a lot. I got a fair amount done, too. I removed sleeves from two quilts, and made a permanent sleeve for my Twinkle Twinkle Pumpkin …
