Miss Molly will be celebrating her birthday on January 16th. It doesn’t seem possible that she is 11 years old. She was such a cute puppy.
Miss Molly is a great companion. She does love my quilts.
I’ve been busy sewing on various quilts during the past two weeks. Three more Dear Jane blocks are finished. It’s enjoyable to piece and quilt a small project.
Two quilts have come back from the long arm quilter.
This is my first and my last Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt. Now, I can say that I have made one. I found a large piece of fabric that I had used in the first border and used it for binding. It is completely finished.
This is an old quilt. It was almost an antique before it was quilted. I hand pieced in the first five years of my quilting journey and this one is hand pieced. I like the idea of a quilt block in the middle of another quilt block. I may make another on like this. I’m looking for fabric for the binding. If I had made binding when I made it, it’s long gone. I’ll look for something today so that I can finish this quilt.
I have more ideas in my head than I have time for. It’s a good thing that I’m staying home and working on a few of them.
One of my daughter in laws asked me if I had some fabric that she could use for a project. What a question!!! I sorted all my fabric drawers and pulled out two bags of scraps for her and two bags for one of my daughters. My daughter makes the most beautiful Grandmother Flower Garden quilts and can use small pieces. My daughter in law will have to show me what she’s working on when we can finally get together. She lives in another state and can’t cross the border until the quarantine is lifted. All the leftover fabric is folded and neat. I don’t imagine that it will stay that way for long, but it looks great for a while. In the meantime, I decided to organize the sewing room again. It was such a mess. I didn’t want to go in there and sew. Most everything is back in it’s place and I can find what I want.
I’m enjoying this new plan of not planning what I’m going to do. Quilting should be fun.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
