Allie's Quilt

Hi friends!
Had fun Sat. cutting and placing pieces on the quilt wall.
After cutting them all I sewed them all together.
That big sewed together  thing did not want to stay up there!
But that part is done. I added all the blocks to see where else I needed to make  to go with it.
Defiantly need some more blocks!
Made two but then it was supper time so I stopped for the day.
Stay warm

Allie's and Kristian's quilt

Hi friends!
These are the blocks I have made so far on Allie's Quilt.
Was suppose to go to Q-Bees but chickened out ! So much flu going around right now. With Tommy having COPD I was afraid I would bring it in on him.
I ordered Navy For Kristian's  quilt and it came today.
She want her's to be a lap quilt with Berry College colors and it to be close to the one her boyfriend has.
I still have to find the light grey. She is getting me a t-shirt with the Berry logo to go in the middle.
I ordered my years supply of piecing thread . I get these from Connecting Threads and they had then on sale when I ordered. Three for the price of two!
Seriously they do last me about a year and I make a lot of quilts.  Not on sale they are 9.99.
Hope to get lots done this weekend.
Hope your's is good

Allie's Quilt

Hi friends!
I made four more blocks for Allie's Quilt and started on the center star.
That bottom one as I started to hang it up I noticed it was skipping so just quit.
Way to tired to work on my machine!
Yesterday was Dr. day, I had a apt. in the morning and Tommy in the after noon so we picked up some groceries  and gas while we were in town.
Another blood pressure med. to try to see if it works.
When we got home I worked on this:
I had mentally done the math to get it just the right size, I hope!
Last night before tread-mill I make a Apple cake to take to Q-Bees tonight
So tomorrow a report on our fun night!
I think we laugh more than any thing else.
Love my meeting with them.

Jarrod's Quilt Top!

Hi Friends!
I did manage to get that top put together.
After lots of Jack the Ripper time! That next to the last row was not in sink with the other stars.
That last row is added!
The top border!
I am planing to bind with the same dark blue so it it will be a small border on the sides.
It's over the standard size for a long twin. Start working more on Allison's quilt tomorrow.
Working hard!
Have a great day

Jarrod's quilt

Hi friends!
I managed to work on Jarrod's quilt a little yesterday after putting away all the Christmas things.
The tree is gone for another year.
Tommy said we can't keep doing this! He took the tree apart. I told him when we get to where we can't we will put up a little tree!
We have a couple more in that big closet. Or we could get us a smaller one. Set it on a table in front of a window.
Just now he went to get the mail and came in and took the wreath off the front door.
So it's all put up except for one table runner and a large cushion.
I need to make another table runner to replace that one and then it will go to..
I just put it up like this last night so I could cook supper.
Going to work on it some more today.       Finish that row and add a small border.
Have a good one
Dreary here!!

A couple of more rows should do it.
Took my tree down in the sewing room.
So much brighter in their now.
I made two blocks on Allison's quilt. These will be kind of a border all around the center .
Need to finish both of these this month!!!!
Today I am taking down the big tree and washing ,plus a little sewing.

Jarrod's quilt and more Christmas

Hi Friends!
I made three more , slightly smaller than the first.
Another ornie I bought this year is this:
It reminded me of our dogs that son gave us 12 years ago.
This is the cup my sister got me for Christmas, she knows me well!
I told you yesterday I would lay these out and I did. Mostly now I just need to move some of them around so I can  sew them together. Made a couple more stars yesterday so I would have enough.
Maybe this weekend I will get them sewed together.
Have a good one

Quilt and Ornament

Hi Frtiends!
Don't forget the GIVEAWAY I will pull a winner tomorrow.
This is the one ornament that I made after Christmas!
Never did find the time before Christmas.
I looked yesterday and found another sheet of white felt so I may make another.
I made a few more stars yesterday.
Mostly I made tri-angles and cut fabric.
I have been slowly putting things back in totes!
This one I bought years ago when the grands were little. He did have tiny toilet paper but little fingers did away with that many years ago.
Very Country!
I will save the tree for last because i keep hoping Alex and Kim will bring the babies over.

Stars

Hi friends!
Now we both have the crud!
But I did make some stars!
I think I made fudge three times in a little over one month.
Love it but not good for you.
I did buy a little tree but I was going to put it in in the cake plate but it was to tall. Jessie and Richards wedding picture behind it.
. So it ended up on the table with them.
We are eat up with sweets that we don't need! But Kim gave us a fruit basket , we needed that .
We are eating leftovers because neither one of us has much of a appetite.
Maybe next year we will be better.
