A month of circles

It has been a month of circles and this little block doesn't get old.  These are a joy to make!

 


I have also been quilting my Moody Blues quilt.  I am working on getting the border quilted.  It is coming along beautifully and I can't wait to finish is up and put my bed.  And I'm thinking it needs a pillow with some circle blocks on it.....







Happy Monday!

More Circles

These are just so much fun to make!  If you have seen these out in blogland and have contemplated making some, do!



Happy Circle Sewing!

365 Days of Circles

After seeing this post http://quiltyfolk.blogspot.com/2015/11/quilty-365-year-long-quilting-journey.html, I couldn't resist. 


I knew these were going to be fun but they are honestly more fun than the law should allow to make.

On another note, I've started quilting my Moody Blues quilt.

I love thread!



The stitch in the ditch is done.  I've started the pretty part.  The rings are done.






I'm going to start on feathers next.....






Happy brand new year of sewing!

The word for the year is Love



 It's eight kinds of LOVE!  I could not have had more fun making them.

Summer quilts

It's August in Texas.  Which means it's 102 and not a breeze to be found anywhere.  A good day to wash a couple quilts and lay them in the grass to dry.  These were dry in less than 30 min.



And of course I'm still plugging away at these blue rings.  They sure do make me happy!







Happy summer quilting!

A New Quilt Started

I had to make one.....I love the DS Single Girl quilts.  I rarely do anyone else's patterns.  I like doing my own thing.  And while I am using her block, I felt the way it was done was way too fussy.  And because I have been making quilts for more than 10 yrs (I'm not sure how that happened so fast.) I decided to make this my own way. 

 So I made a freezer paper template.





I really wanted mine more scrappy and this is a very good way to use up smallish scraps.
