I finished the top last summer sometime around June. I posted about it here.
I played it safe and did organic wavy lines…again.
One of these days I’ll venture outside of my comfort zone, but these organic wavy lines afford darn good texture.
And a few more pics after washing.
I am one happy camper!
Until next time, God bless and Happy Stitchin’!
p.s. I don’t know about y’all but I’m so looking forward to going to church to praise and worship alongside my brothers and sisters!
A Thread for Life
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25 NIV
First things first, Scrappy Trips. I’ve actually started calling it my Everything Goes Scrappy Trips. Here are pics of 4 of the quadrants.
I didn’t stop there though. I have a king size bed and I want my quilt wider than longer (more drop on sides, because I don’t ever make my bed where the pillows are covered, I just throw the pillows on top). The blocks are 12″ but 8 x 8 (96″ square) wouldn’t work, so I jumped up to 10 x 8 (120″ x 96″). But that was a bit, A LOT overzealous of me because it made the sides WAY too long!
I removed a row of blocks off the longer side and now it’s 9 x 8 (108″ x 96′) and I like it much better. I’m not sure when I will quilt it but I’m ecstatic the top is done!
And then I finished baby boy’s quilt. He’s due in July so I am way ahead of schedule on this project. I wanted it to be a surprise but I inadvertently sent this pic to my niece (instead of my sis) so she already knows what it looks like. But oh well, she loves it. It’s going to look even better after I wash it!
I guess that means I have to start quilting Meadowland and then work up the nerve to quilt my behemoth, Everything Goes Scrappy Trips! But first I think I might make a couple more scrappy trips. Since I started quilting in 2011 I can’t ever remember wanting to immediately make another of the quilt I just finished. But I immensely enjoyed making scrappy trips!
Thanks for stopping by. I’m sure you all are keeping busy too. Stay well, happy stitchin’, and God bless.

…but I didn’t really want to. I know it’s selfish of me, but it’s true. I was perfectly content working on my Quilty Project Lineup. Alas, I set selfishness aside to do some work for a good cause.
I work for Quicksilver Express Courier, a company that provides essential services to hospitals, doctors, pharmacies, patients, etc.; transporting swabs & other specimens for testing, as well as medications, supplies, and other necessary items. So, when I got a call from one of the owners saying we hadn’t been able to purchase masks for our couriers (because hospitals get first dibs on whatever is available), I rounded up some makers and got busy making masks.
I made 3 different styles. The pleated style w/ear loops and ties, an occlusive style by Bungalow Quilting, and a contoured style by Sew Much Moore. I made 42 masks total; 11 for family and the remaining 31 for Quicksilver. Our goal was 600 and we had 500 of those within 5 days! How awesome is that?! We are so very grateful to all the wonderful makers who answered our call!
