TTMT #397 – jewells68 – March 30, 2021 – A New Quilt

Because OF COURSE I started a brand new quilt.

In which I talk about starting a new quilt design that I’ve already begun piecing. I also talk about things that need to be quilted and show some tops and backings Jennifer O. sent to me for Project Linus. Finishing the memory quilt and getting it into DeAnn’s hands has motivated me to get more quilts finished, so that’s what’s on the agenda for April!

  1. Yay for such an awesome reception for the memory quilt! I know you are delighted with her reaction.

    The finished quilt were orphaned blocks from Abbie that I turned into a top and quilted. The big tops came from Lynn. I believe they were made by her late sister-in-law. I’m delighted you can use them!


    1. I knew that one had something to do with Abbie, she loves the Kaffe fabrics. I’m excited to get these quilted. I already have an idea for the doggy one. I want to write “Woof” over and over in cursive in the borders, lol. Prob just meander most of the quilt and then write my “woofs” last.

  2. I love the table your friend found to keep her quilt in. What a great memory quilt and friend.
    Looks like you have your Linus projects lined up. Happy quilting.


    1. Isn’t that table lovely? I would love to find a coffee table kind of like that to keep some vintage quilts in.

      I always have a ton of Linus quilts on the go, but the ones I’ve pieced lately are a bit smaller, so this will help me get some bigger ones where they are needed.

  3. LOL! You’re starting a new quilt….looks like you’re starting MANY new things!! I quilted on my 25th anniversary last year! Hey, it makes us happy and I’m sure you’ll get quality time with hubby later if he does have to work.

    Those orphan blocks were from me, but they’re not Kaffe Fassett, just some really bright fabrics I put together for a baby quilt. And yet, the point you were making is correct…I LOVE Kaffe Fassett!


    1. I have started a spreadsheet to keep up with the projects I have started and/or want to start that I can actually remember. Those are all non-linus things, since Linus is essentially neverending, lol. I’ve decided not to even track those other than photographing and placing in my yearly donation flickr album. That way I can see if I need to step up my game for Linus quilts or not, lol.


  4. Why did you have to ruin it by telling us it’s Peach tea? I thought day drinking was funny 😆

    Oh I’m so happy hear how much she loves it. You did an amazing job. Oh the table is a wonderful solution.

    Wow lots goodies for Linus! You are set with stuff for a while!

    I need to use EQ8 more like that. I have used it almost exclusively for foundation piecing patterns. There is so much more I can do with it. I just never sit down and play with it.

    Happy Crafting


    1. I don’t think anyone from work watches my videos, but just in case I figured I’d better mention it, lol. It was filmed on my lunch break, after all.

      Spent Sunday cleaning and organizing a bit in the project room to make it easier to get some stuff done. Need to wash those two quilts this morning so they are ready to drop off on Saturday.


    1. I’m not going to finish the panel quilt as fast as I’d hoped, but that’s ok. I’m enjoying what I’m working on, and that’s what counts, right? 🙂


  5. The table with quilt is a nice solution to a difficult problem.

    Happy Belated Anniversary… 25 years, wow!

    I’m looking forward to seeing the panel quilt… the flying geese border looks intense!


    1. The flying geese, OMG. I wish I wasn’t so tired in the evening or I would work on them a bit after dinner. I really wanted them to be done before this weekend. But not likely at this point.
