In which I show and tell what I made and/or finished during my long weekend BFF Retreat with Jennifer O., including the finished quilt from Jennifer’s “Chocolate Box” pattern which I made for our host, dubbed “Long Live Rock”, the matching “cat quilt” for his kitty, and the tops I pieced during retreat, including one Jennifer pieced and sent home with me. 2 are already quilted! Also I have some news that will affect my quality time in my Project Room. So make sure you watch all the way through. This one is longer than usual, but there are a lot of photos at the end.
in which Jennifer O. and I talk about our hastily planned retreat and the shenanigans that ensued. We also introduce you to our furry friend Zane the Cat. Because this is already so long I’ll show and tell finished quilts and finished retreat tops next week. Get vaxxed, get together with friends, SEW ALL THE THINGS. #bffretreat #quiltforgood
In which I show the Chocolate Box quilt I made for Project Linus that I finally quilted and am ready to trim and bind, as well as talk about the Rock and Roll quilt I started last week. Moxie wants to thank Molly for the awesome thread she mailed for Moxie to try, it is working great!
So I just barely remembered today was Tuesday and recorded a quick video. Please excuse the messy hair… messier than usual hair, anyway, lol. But I just let it air dry and it was SUPER windy today and my hair was still wet when I went out this morning to bring the garbage and recycle bins back up to the house. Long story short (I know… too late!) it made my hair even more “mad scientist” than usual. In this brief video I wish my nephew a happy birthday, talk about an outdoor Project Linus meeting we had this past weekend, and show off a strip of flying geese. Stay crafty, my friends!
In which I show you 2 finished quilts which will be donated this weekend to Project Linus. We are having a parking lot meeting to show off 1 quilt each and get supplies like batting and fabric. We are hoping to be able to meet inside next month, if not then maybe June. Meanwhile I have made zero progress on the panel quilt I started a couple weeks ago other than now all the supplies I need to finish the top are now obtained. So here’s to making more progress in the coming week!
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!
Well, I had a busy week!!
In which I talk about various and assorted things I’ve been working on, including QAYG, Linus top, organizing, and more. Sorry if the editing is choppy but I was trying to cut the length down as much as I could without affecting the continuity too much.
Yes that title is correct, I have been making even MORE tops for Project Linus over the past week. Do I need to be quilting the tops I already have done? Yes, yes I do. Will I be doing that soon? Yes, Yes I will. But for now, enjoy the results of this past weekend’s “faux retreat”. At least I pushed 3 more projects forward into finished charity quilt tops. I need to work on some personal projects as well. I think what I am saying is I need a REAL retreat… or at the very least, I need to take a few days off of work for a quilting staycation.
In which I talk about the awesome productive week and 3-day weekend I had making Project Linus quilt tops and working on my great-nephew Brayden’s quilt top. Cutting up donated fabrics really got my creativity flowing. I am really focused right now on finishing some languishing projects as well as just moving other projects forward…
