I originally planned to insert this into a video I would record today, but have decided in the interest of time (mostly MY time, lol) I would just use this footage from Friday, in which you’ll see the finished Red work/Bluework quilt for Project Linus, washed and ready to turn in, which I did this past Saturday. I’m right on track for my annual Project Linus goal of 12 for the year… 7th month – 7th quilt.
Thanks for watching and see you next week!
In which you see the beginnings of a special memorial quilt I’m working on while I blather on about basting with pool noodles and my dedication to imperfection. Cheers!
In this video I show my 3rd, count ’em, THIRD Project Linus quilt top I have completed since the June meeting. Go me! Made from 2 panels, one donated space book panel called “wonders of the night sky” and one Stonehenge solar system panel I purchased. See you in July!
Well I’m late, but I did manage to record a video this morning and am just now getting around to uploading it. And I’ll apologize in advance… it’s a long one! I am currently in a timeout because of bringing home too many donations from my Project Linus meeting this weekend. So pour yourself a glass of wine or whatever potion you prefer… put your feet up and listen to the rambles of Jewells.
In which I show you a corner of my gradually evolving craft space… I keep plugging away at it as I try to get it to be the most efficient use of the limited space that I have. Also talk a bit about current Project Linus quilts and my friend’s memorial quilt. Also I am pretty sure I need a new supreme slider for FMQ. Apparently I am pretty rough on my sewing equipment.
In which I show off a new quilt top from some (72!) of the squares I cut from the fabric Susan sent me. Constructed following the tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Co “Charm Squares on Point”, but didn’t add second border because it’s for Project Linus so it doesn’t need to be quite that big. Forgot to mention I “brewed” up some “Fabric Elixir” in my cauldron this weekend… home made pressing spray using the recipe Jennifer posted ages ago. I’m loving it so far! Guess I better start sewing up some more squares.
Fowl Play is an assortment of random scraps from panels that had been fussy cut within an inch of their lives and the leftover cut up remnants were donated to Project Linus. My mission, save them from the trash can and turn them into a cohesive quilt of some kind. Challenge Accepted!
