WHOOMP There IT Is! #19 – A New Pattern & Progress

Just today I learned I can see how many views, links and clicks I’ve had for each linky party on InLinkz. Thank you…all you hoppers and linkers from last week! It was my biggest party yet!

Don’t forget there’s still time to enter Craftsy’s Giveaway if you have not already done so!  One entry per person until Sunday, Feb 22nd @ 11:59p MST.

I spent this last week working on a new easy pattern for my pattern store on Craftsy.  It’s called Easy Microwave Tortilla Warmer and it’s FREE for a limited time! Download your copy today!

I also got the queen size rag quilt all sewn together. WOWZERS! It’s huge and it’s heavy! It’s a custom order on my Etsy Shop.  There’s going to be a whole lotta snippin’ & clippin’ going on for the next several days!  It’s made w/a bunch of Thimbleberries and 30s repros.

My customer previously purchased a lap size rag quilt that was backed w/a fabric called Civil War Legacy by Judie Rothermel for Marcus Bros.

She wanted a queen size quilt backed w/the same fabric but I only had about 1/2 yd left. I searched high and low and even called the designer herself. It was at this time I learned the fabric was re-released in the Pine Tree Lodge collection however, she didn’t have enough for a queen size quilt. I started searching Google for Pine Tree Lodge and hit pay dirt w/Melinda’s Fabric Shop in Hendersonville TN! She had an entire bolt!  The fabric isn’t exactly the same, but my customer was thrilled that I found it.  Thanks Melinda!

Original fabric on right

I’ve managed to get these 2-bits done on my Arkansas Traveler quilt.  I’m working on this as part of my 2016 UFO Challenge.

That’s all I’ve got for you today folks. Now let’s see your progress!

p.s. Giveaway here next week!  Be here or be square!

A Thread for Life
If Jesus gives us a task or assigns us to a difficult season, every ounce of our experience is meant for our instruction and completion if only we’ll let Him finish the work. I fear, however, that we are so attention-deficit that we settle for bearable when beauty is just around the corner. ― Beth Moore

WHOOMP There IT Is! #3

I recently ran out of batting so I’ve spent the last week or so working on small projects.  
It all started w/this snap bag.
Then I made a couple of zippered pouches. An open wide zippered pouch and a boxy bag.  I’ve only sewn zippers twice before so I was pretty proud of myself for getting the zippers right the 1st time on both of these bags.

I decided to use up some of my flannel stash and made a few baby blankets. I forgot to take pics of a couple of them.  I went retro w/the first one.  This Sylvester and Tweety fabric is from 1997!

There’s another baby blanket rolled up in this next pic. The tote bags are a pattern I’m working on for my pattern store. I also made a set of Easy Reversible Microwave Cozies.

Then I remembered my granddaughter’s 5th b-day is coming up next month, so I thought it would be a good idea to actually start the wall hanging that was to be her gift last year! In my defense I actually had ALL of the pieces cut out…but then I put them in a ziploc bag and tucked them safely away…and kinda forgot about them for a year.  Anyway, it only took me a couple of hours to get it sewn together.

It’s the Tiny Tulips pattern by Jera at Quilting in the Rain.

The tulips are made w/fabric I actually won from one of Jera’s Instagram giveaways awhile back. 
Yay Me!

It’s still in the flimsy stage because I want to get her name embroidered on it before I quilt it.  Where you see “Mia” in black is where I want to get it embroidered in pink.

And of course I plan to finish it using the Faux Piped Binding technique.


Now it’s that time
What’s been going on in your neck ‘o the woods? I sure would like to hear about it!  Link up to my new WHOOMP There IT Is! Saturday Linky Party below.

Almost Forgotten Finishes

I can’t believe this…and I can’t remember if it’s ever happened before…AND it may never happen again, but this is my 2nd post in one week!
Tonight on my blog reading list I saw a TGIFF! post from M-R Charbonneau of Quilt Matters and it reminded me that I have some finishes I haven’t shared w/y’all! 
So, without further ado… 
Mystery Quilt – started June 2014 finished June 2015

Snap Bags – A recent commission
Things not so finished…
Basket Weave Batik Placemats

This flimsy is a pattern called Modern Lattice by Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts.

It’s a flimsy

This flimsy is a pattern called Vintage Summer (2014) by Jeni Baker of In Color Order. It’s one I’ve been wanting to make for awhile and finally did last weekend.

It’s another flimsy

Today’s finishes…

And yet another on the sewing table…

And last but not least…one of David’s finishes. He turned me this gorgeous seam ripper! It’s made of Koa, which is a Hawaiian wood.
  Until next time, Happy Quilting and God Bless!
