#50 TTMT June 8, 2021 – Piecing and Binding

Finished the binding on one of the Scrappy Stars wall hangings I have made this year. I sewed the Pinwheels in the Stars blocks together. So I have another quilt top that needs to be quilted. I cut a bunch of fat quarters for my shop. Corner Curve Quilts will be making a10% donation to the Berrien Towne and Country Quilters from all sales on, Thursday, June 10, 2021. Besides using the little wagon I showed you last week, I am going to use my doll cradle to hold more fat quarter bundles. The cradle was made by an older gentleman in the small town I grew up in. I also stopped at Falak Farms and bought 7 qt of shelled peas, a flat of strawberries, new potatoes and asparagus.

The peas and strawberries that I bought at a local farm stand. They are so good.

Just now getting the video I recorded last week posted. Where did the week go? Anyway, I finished my mosaic lighthouse quilts. One is 6.5 x 7.5″ The other is 14 x 15.5″. I really like how they turned out.

TTMT #45- May 4, 2021- Containers for Cuts

Purchased a few different containers to store the fabric I cut. So far I like the smaller containers, but if I get a lot of squares and triangles cut then the bigger ones will be nice.

I also talk about the upcoming quilt along. It starts May 8, 2021 and goes for 4 weeks. Pinwheels in the Stars is the name of the quilt.

TTMT #44 – April 27, 2021 -More Blocks

Finished sewing the LaVerne (Cy Star alternate design) top. Then I show 6 more blocks for a lap quilt. Moving on to the patriotic quilt along, by showing some blocks for it. Talk about planting fruit trees and blueberry bushes.

TTMT #43- April 20, 2021 – Bounce, Bounce, Bounce

This week I have Bounced from one project to the next. More Cy Star alternate design blocks made. Doing another quilt along starting May 8th with patriotic quilt that will last for 4 weeks. Plus I designed another quilt, that took a complete color turn on me when I was designing in EQ8. That is part of the fun of creating. I have been cutting a lot of fabric with my new hand power tool. What is the best way to store fabric that you cut ahead just because or for a specific pattern/project? I am using plastic bags, but am trying to figure out a better system. What is your go to Accu Quilt Die or must have die? I have found the lint brush is very helpful in picking up little pieces of thread left on the dies. A couple other things I have been busy with this week include planting fruit trees and cat sitting for a friend.

Kitty that I was watching for a friend.

TTMT #42- April 13, 2021 – Fun Feathers and More

Made more Cy Star alternate design blocks. Then I took the Fun and Fancy Feather class with Kim Werth at Accomplish Quilting. Learned a lot about feathers and I think I finally got the hang of the hump and bump feather. The sword feather actually turned out really neat. Swirl feathers are fun to make. I look forward to adding some of these feathers to my quilted projects.
