TTMT #326 – jewells68 – September 17, 2019 – Bearly Quilting

In which I show off my first week’s blocks for the new Project Linus Mystery Quilt “Logey Bear Leads the Way”. This year I’m using all stash fabrics/scraps. The Pfaff/Regulator saga continues, but I didn’t go into it at all this week. Also I forgot to mention that a coworker gave me an old (but never used) quilt she won in a silent auction for her son’s theater group years ago that had just been sitting in a bin. It looked ruined but I washed it in warm with a couple of color catchers and lo and behold it came out just fine. So I snipped a few threads, sewed a Project Linus label on it called it PL2019 #8, which means I’m still only ONE blanket behind for my donations this year, yay!

Here’s a photo of the quilt before and after washing:

In which you get to see the finished Halloween Quilt top, yay! I know it’s only the first week of September, so I guess that means I have time to make Halloween Quilt #2… and so I did. Or at least started it. Hopefully the top will be finished by next week’s video.

TTMT #323 – jewells68 – August 27, 2019 – Rambly Times

A wee bit of crafty since last week. If only I had taken a photo… Anyway, here’s a bit of a ramble about why I’m not piecing and why I’m not quilting, and why I committed a random act of knitting over the weekend. I am seriously loling at the still in the video preview, ROFTL!

In which I show a new quilt in progress, this time for me me me! Also an update on the stitch regulator saga and new glasses… Sorry I’m so out of it, didn’t get enough sleep last night and have a bit of a headache, not to mention my blood sugar was low. All combined to make me sound half asleep!

Hoping for a little help from my friends

Good morning and Happy Friday! I want to make a quilt for someone who really really really wants this one she saw on facebook. Of course it’s from one of those horrible “quilt blanket” scam sites that steal people’s photos. I have been unable to locate the original source of the photo/maker of the quilt.

Inspiration

I have told her it is highly unlikely I will be able to find that exact panel, which looks digitally printed to me. However, I know some of you have mentioned that you have bought panels and then had them sitting around, so if this happens to be one of them, I would be willing to buy it from you or swap or something. Whatever we need to do. Meanwhile, if you have seen something even kind of similar, even if it’s in a different colorway, would you please clue me in? Because I can’t find anything like it other that these stupid scam sites. It needs to have at least one big butterfly whose wings are spread open like these. If it’s the wrong color maybe I can overdye it or something.

I’m less concerned about the border fabrics, all I need is varying shades of the same color and I can do piano keys or something.

I’m on a mission!

Thanks in advance…
