TTMT #70 Block 2 for I Wish You a Merry Quilt Along.

Hi everyone,

Today I only have 1 block to show, the tree farm block for I Wish You a Merry Quilt Along.

Here is my blog post on it, where I show how I quilted the block.

Plus, I am taking part in the Back to school blog hop, the first post is about how to baste a BIG quilt on a small table.

This is Sam Hunters post

I am feeling very accomplished this week. I managed to finish a couple projects and that always makes me feel energized.

TTMT 8-15-17 – Actually Posting on Tuesday

Five quilts completed so far in 2017; one more has been shipped from MSQC and should be here in a few days.  My goal was six quilts so I’m way ahead of schedule.  There will be at least two more completed and maybe more!

Boy was I tongue-tied in this video.

Athena’s Run will be in September at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons.  For those of you nearby, you are welcome to join Team Hot Pepper!

No video today

Hi there, folks! All is well, however I have absolutely nothing to show, and didn’t have time before work this morning to film even a teeny tiny video. I dropped off Miss P at university Saturday, after helping her move into her on-campus apartment. It was a super long day, and Sunday was spent recovering from the heat, hours of driving round trip + loading and unloading.

That being said, last night quilting on my 2011 PoD resumed, and now that Miss P is not home I can quilt in the morning before work, too, so that’s what I did instead of filming today. I was going to put this quilt away so I could get started on my great-nephew’s quilt, because, though he’s not due until September 15, he’s expected basically any day now. However, last night I decided I really want to at least finish the quilting on my PoD, even if I don’t get it bound quite yet. Besides, I still haven’t decided on what I want to do for Baby Sawyer’s quilt, so I figured why not keep quilting at least until I make that decision? I have seen so many ideas but just haven’t settled on anything yet. This is always the hardest part for me when it comes to making a baby quilt… what to do, what to do??

Anyway, to make a long story short (too late!) I’m about halfway done quilting the background on the inside of the PoD shelves. This part goes quicker than when you are doing the individual blocks, so I made a decent amount of progress already just since dinner last night.

I’ll leave you with a photo of the courtyard in Miss P’s new place. She’s on the 3rd (top) floor… in fact her apartment door is behind the 1st wide column from the right… The blue tower houses a study room for each floor, and the red has the elevator. This is so much prettier than the courtyard at her dorm last year!

Looking forward to watching your videos and I will see you next week!
