TTMT #53a & b – June 29,2021- Project Of Doom is Done & A Shop Hop

This week I have two short videos. I finished the Project of Doom Harry Potter Bookshelf Quilt for my daughter. It is now on her bed and she loves it. So I did a video of the quilt before it left.

The POD is done

Then in the second video I talk about going to the Shipshewana Quilt Show and shop hop. I received a panel at one shop. Another had a coupon for a fat quarter. I picked up a grab bag at one shop, with lots of scraps. All the shops gave a 5″ square and directions to make pinwheel blocks. The blocks will be mailed in for charity quilts.

TTMT #40 March 31, 2021- Sweet Sixteen Dresses.

In this video I talk about making 3 dresses for the Miss Sweet Sixteen contest held during the Midwest Old Threshers reunion each year in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. The girls volunteer in various areas of the show during the reunion. They can be seen strolling the grounds in period dress for women of the late 1800s to early 1900s. I participated when I was 16 and can still wear my dress from then. Period clothing never goes out of style.

It took me over an hour to gather and pin each ruffle. Glad I used my favorite method of gathering. Zig-zag over cotton crochet thread, then pull into even gathers.

Then I talk about Cy Star Mystery Quilt alternate design blocks that I have made so far.

I had to try the dresses on.

This one fits also.

It is fun to twirl in a full skirt.

I had to try them all on. Then get a photo with my flowers that are blooming.

TTMT #38 – March 16 2021- Strings and Mysteries

Attended the Kalamazoo Log Cabin Quilters meeting via zoom tonight. Their guess speaker was Mary Hogan with a slide show on her string quilts and her two books. That inspired me to make another string block.

This is the last week of my Cy Star Mystery Quilt Along. The last six weeks have flown by.

TTMT – #37 – March 9,2021 on the 11th- One of Grandma’s Quilts

Cy Star Mystery Quilt Along is rolling right along. This week is week 5 and there is just one more week to go.

I love old quilts and today I share about one of the quilts my husbands grandmother made. One of my favorite parts of this quilt is the darker yellow used to finish the sashing. Then the fabrics from the 30’s-40’s that are used in this quilt are fascinating to look at. This square in a square in a square is a fun block. Quilts are meant to be used and this one is still being used.
