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!
In which I show you some recent fabric donations I brought home from Project Linus last weekend, along with my finished Linus quilt. I also brought home some of this lovely lady’s book collection, to go through and see if I wanted to save any of the patterns, but I totally forgot to show you those! So I will try to remember to show you those next week.
Thanks again for the green and yellow quilt top, Susan!
In which I briefly (for once!) show the border I’m working on for my 2018 Swap Block Quilt as well as what I need to get done this week. Strip piecing is pretty fun, y’all!
In which I show off a finished fleece blanket for Project Linus, and snippets of in progress “stuff”. Edited out random digressions about sewing machine feet and machines in general. You’re welcome. 😉
