Red Hearts

Decorating my home for the holidays keep the ideas fresh. One holiday that I haven't tackled yet is Valentine's day. But it is fun to see the pretty red hearts that celebrates the season of love.

Happy Valentine's Day

Blue on Blue

Another ufo bites the dust!

When I made this top, the plan was to add a border. However, several years have passed, and who knows where the border fabric went to ;-)

I do like the backing that I dug out of my stash.

 Yay for another completed project!

Happy Quilting!

Have you seen the Canning Season Quilt Along at The Life of Hazel Ilene? I really would love to do this one.

Until then..................

Sew-per bowl

Are you a football fan? Will you be glued to the TV set, or to your sewing machine? How are you celebrating the Super Bowl?
However you celebrate, it never hurts to  have some snacks available

Have a fun weekend. And Happy Quilting!

Love quilting - Hate binding

It's a love/hate relationship. I love cutting fabric, putting it together, quilting it. But when it comes to the final phase - sewing down the binding - my love turns to fatigued dislike.

I finished quilting this quilt (don't you love the backing?) and all that was left was sewing down the binding. I sometimes try to use the backing fabric, pulling it over the sides and machine stitching. But this backing was different than the quilt fabric, I just couldn't do it.

Sitting in front of the TV, I stitched night after night. It felt like forever. I'm just not a fan of hand stitching of any kind. But finally it was done.

I loved the fabric in this quilt so much that I scavenged the left over fabric and worked on a table runner.

This one I was able to use the backing to make the binding :-)

A happy marriage indeed!

Happy Quilting!
