Works In Progress Monday

I finished this jellyroll race flimsy a few weeks ago.

I got it basted Saturday evening w/the help of my foxy companion Moe.

And I just took a break from quilting it to type this post.

Another project in progress is called Festive Flutter Tree.

It’s my “traveler”; the project I usually work on at sew days.

I’ve got six more butterflies to go before I can start assembling it. At this rate, I should be able to get this little wall hanging finished by Christmas.Until next time, happy quilting and God Bless.

Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us — to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. – Ephesians‬ ‭3:20-21‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

I’m Getting It Together

I’ve finally finished all the components of my Merry Sparkle Punch Christmas quilt.

They had to be laid out in my desired placement before sewing any together.

I’m very thankful this layout guide was included in the pattern.

All 480 components wouldn’t fit on my design wall. And even laying out just half the blocks required me to use an additional piece of batting along one side.

The pattern designer recommended piecing the top together in sections. I visually divided into sections of 24; 4 across x 6 down, and started taking two at a time to the machine but quickly tired of this.

I decided to number each component w/tape, which allowed me to take entire sections to the machine.

And I had the top half sewn together in no time!

And now the bottom half is laid out on the design wall and waiting to be numbered.

Thanks for stopping by.

A Thread for Life

This is my prayer in the desert

When all that’s within me feels dry

This is my prayer and my hunger in me

My God is the God who provides

I will bring praise I will bring praise

No weapon formed against me shall remain

I will rejoice I will declare

God is my victory and He is here

All of my life In every season

You are still God

I have a reason to sing

I have a reason to worship

Through Thick and Thin

It is finally finished!

I honestly couldn’t remember how long ago I’d started this quilt. I knew it was at least 2 years ago and just discovered I started it in January 2015.

So…Through Thick and Thin, my king size, scrappy, mostly batik, log cabin quilt, made with 2.5″ and 1.25″ logs, was only 3 years in the making!

I stopped at forty-two, 15″ blocks even though I knew it wasn’t going to be big enough for my bed. I didn’t want wide borders all around, so I decided sashing was the way to go…even though I’d personally never seen it done on a log cabin quilt. And even w/the sashing, I still needed borders! I added 6″ side borders and 2″ top/bottom borders.

I quilted it w/this modern panto that brings to mind a fence of “Asian” influence. My friend GayLee thinks it resembles a tree. Regardless, it’s perfect for my quilt.

The layout is an offset barn raising and the quilt is longer than it is wide. But when I put it on the bed, I liked the fit better turned the other way. So now, what were supposed to be wider side borders, are now top/bottom borders.

I am totally in love w/it and can’t stop taking pictures. The fur babies love it too!

Have a fantastic weekend y’all!
