Weekend Plans

Spending time with Rip! He posed for a picture. : ) Psss- I don't like him much.

A few years ago, I made this quilt and started free motion quilting it and it is really bad. That is where "Rip" comes in. Only 1/4 of it is quilted...not too big of a task.

I have been continuing with my 3 a day goal for these nine patches. The stack is growing! Yeah!

The Good, Bad, and Ugly!


Freddy the frame gets the ugly label today. He is costing me a mere little fortune in needles. I use a 14 or 16 with him. He will buzz along fine and then snap. Might it be bobbin tension ? Being a beginner, I have no other ideas. Please help!!!
A UFO that should have been done long ago. A Quilt Along you can find HERE. I am making some progress. Three blocks a day is my minimum goal.

Inspired by Amy's Red, White, and Black Quilt HERE, I thought it would make a nice donation to QOV.Thanks for the inspiration Amy!!

After much thought about this Unfinished Object thing.....For me personally.... I get bored working on one thing. So, I have decided to work on at least two maybe three things at the same time. Hopefully, this plan will result in more finishes and less things banished to the closet.

UFO now a Top

Finished piecing Double Delight on Monday. Here is a picture with bassets. They think the camera is all about them. : )

Here it is without Bassets. I hope to have it loaded on the frame by the end of the week.
I am not sure what is next. Another QOV or UFO.....Hmmm

Block of the Month

Here is my latest project. It is a BOM available by the
Here are my January blocks.
My February blocks.

Hubby loves my snowball and nine patches using Kona black and brights. I thought, I would just continue the same color scheme. That way I don't have to re thread my machine and work on both quilts at the same time. That is either really smart or very lazy...
Off to work on my snowballs. Have a good one.

First Goal of 2010 - DONE

You know the story. Checking out Blogs to see what everyone is doing. I came across this site

I just had to make it.

It is large 72" Square. I requested a longarmer though Quilts of Valor. You can find their website HERE. I can't wait to see it quilted.

I am eager to get my next project started. First, I need to clean up my sewing area. LOL ! Looks like my daughters room.; )

This project used almost all my red and blue stash. I must go shopping! I feel so bad about that.**giggle**

Hopefully, I will be back with something new to share.
