Feeling sorry for myself.....

Here's my get well card.
Inside says....
there's nothing a little lipstick can't fix.
Well, it can't fix this.
sorry about the bad picture, but that's what happens when you are right handed and you break your right arm.
I've been going crazy and it's only been 6 days.  Surgery isn't even until Tuesday.
I did get antsy and decided to lay out some very old blocks....and I do mean old!
They are Christmas fabric and the pattern was from a charity project.....possibly Turning Twenty.
There were to be no butting up of seams within the blocks, but I have a couple and that is ok.  At least I feel like I have accomplished something. 
Ok....back to putting my arm over my head.


  1. Ouch! Maybe if you put some lipstick on the bandage? Bless your heart. I really feel for you. The quilt's cute.....

  2. YOWZERS!! Now that's got to hurt!! Hope you mend FAST!!

  3. Goodness, I'm so sorry!!! Will you get a new cast after surgery? If so, have some of your quilting friends cut up fabrics scraps and modge podge them onto the cast... that may cheer you up a bit!

  4. Been thinking of you. Tuesday must seem like it will never come!

  5. I am so sorry for you. Lipstick will not do! Sad it is the same arm that is your dominant arm, I hope the surgery goes well. Will be keeping you in my prayers.

  6. Hope the surgery went well and that you are soon on the mend. ((hugs))

Checkerboard quilt

One more day before the end of the year and I was hoping to get just one more quilt finished for 2017.

I got this pattern from a blog called The Painted Quilt .  If you go to her blog and  under the free patterns go to "Stopped Me In My Tracks" quilt,  you can have the pattern, too.  
I did get this one quilted today using the Easy Peasy Baptist Fan pantograph.

Personally, I wish I owned the Circle Lord  mechanism that I could attach to my Millenium that would have given me "perfect" arcs, but once I finished the whole quilt, I am pretty pleased with the end results.  
I had purchased a big gingham check in yellow and white for the backing.

It's not a perfect match to the front which is done in Kona daffodil and a creamy white, but the whole quilt speaks Spring/Summer, warmth, brightness to me; and here in Michigan with our sub zero weather right now, that sounds really good to me.  
Anyways, I am hoping to get the binding attached tomorrow (New Year's Eve…

Disappearing Hourglass

This quilt came about when I was going through my stash (trying to destash, actually) and I came across a layer cake.  I did some research on-line looking for something to make with a layer cake.
I have discussed the whole process of making the disappearing hourglass here.
A couple fabrics were added to get enough blocks to get my 6 x 7 blocks and then I ordered another April Cornell fabric for the main border.
I added a small white border to finish off the outside of the blocks.

Then the deep periwinkle fabric was used for the outer border and one of the blocks, too. 

The top is complete.

A green dot fabric was purchased for the backing.

I put it on the longarm and I used another new-to-me panto called Venice.

It looks great on the fabric, too.  

Binding is the same as the final border.
The quilt is complete, binding and all.

Another finish.....yeah!!!

First project for 2018 is complete.....

Since I am sitting here recovering from surgery, I made sure I had some hand projects to keep me busy for a week or so.
The first one completed is my yellow checkerboard quilt. The binding was machine stitched on the day before surgery with the idea that I would hand stitch it down after.  
So, here is #1 for 2018.

Not much yellow thread to spare, but sure glad I had yellow at all.  
There are a couple knit projects to work on; and if I feel like sitting in front of the sewing machine, I have some blocks that need to be put into a top, but we will see.
For now, I am healing and just glad there are things to keep me occupied if the need arises. 

Happy Quilting!
