Quilty Clothes

Seeing all the pieced and quilted clothing that is in style on Pinterest got me wondering if that means I can wear my old jumpers from the 90's???? I know there's a few of my friends that took this class from me. Do you still have your jumpers??? LOL

This was an original design. We even self published a pattern for it. I taught countless classes on making these jumpers. There were 3 or 4 different block designs to choose from with different border options for the sides of the block and the hem. I thought I was so clever! Hahahaha!

Also... there are 40 1x2" flying geese in that hem!

Oh My Gosh

 I've completely lost my mind... LOL!!! These will finish at 2"! New leader/ender project. I want to do an Oh My Gosh quilt, but I'm making my blocks bigger. The pattern calls for these 4-patches to finish at 1"!!! I'm not THAT crazy!!!

Finished putting my blocks together for my 2020 Stash Buster quilt. I think I have a Kaffe print that will work for the border.

Bali Wedding Star Block

I uploaded a new video to YouTube... Same Bali Wedding Star quilt... This shows how I quilted the blocks with the 15" arc from Linda Hrcka, The Quilted Pineapple, along with freemotion designs. I'm using DecoBob 80wt thread in a light grey color from WonderFil.

Big Wind

Yesterday we had sideways wind. The power was out about a mile to the west of us... and on the next street east of us, but we had power. I decided not to take a chance, so no quilting yesterday.  Today is bright and sunny, but very cold! A good day to quilt!

This is how windy it was...

And that pot is heavy!!!

Monday was Mr Will's 7th birthday! It doesn't seem that long ago when we brought him home.

 In the past I've struggled to find a good angle to mount my phone to take good videos...

The other day I decided to try again. Here's a test video on a new angle...
