What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

Started 11/19/17 by MarciainMD; 385170 views.

well all 10 of my I spy quilts are done, washed & photographed - now to update my blog.  I plan to start on the fused applique clock next.

I've also decided to donate an additional 5 that I had around, though I'll need to modify the labels on some as they have my name.  A friend of mine works at a crisis pregnancy center that has a resale shop, I'm going to see if perhaps they would like them as fund raisers.

That's a great idea.  Our church quilting group also donates to them but I believe we give them baby quilts for the new mothers.

Besides working on UFOs, I promised my brother's children that I would make them each a quilt from their father's t-shirts and hockey jerseys.  He passed away Feb 11th, 2020.  Not Covid related.

Monday and Tuesday I managed to get them all cut up and stabilized.  Now I'm waiting for my DSIL to let me know which shirts to put in which quilts.  One niece is from a former marriage and some of the shirts won't have any meaning for her.  While I'm waiting, I will also see if I can find any hockey-related fabric to incorporate.  They will all be different.

In addition to these, Carrie returned a charity top quilted that I need to bind.  I made some scrappy binding for it.  I also put together blocks I had previously made into another charity quilt top.  I hope our church quilting group can get together soon.  This last one can easily be tied.

Also still working on putting my sewing room back together after saying goodbye to my long arm.  Want to buy some of the storage units that hold the baskets to help organize some of stuff.

What?  When did that happen?

My Grandson is a hockey player, and I want to make him a quilt with hockey fabric.  I found a small but good selection of hockey fabrics at equilter.com

I haven't bought any yet, but will do that before too much longer.

Sounds like a nice project you have going there.  

You may need larger amounts but I do have about a 3/4th yard of this.  I haven't used it because the individual players are a bit larger than I typically use, about 5" total.  I'd like to keep a few squares but if you want the rest you are welcome.  You've shared so many fabrics with me over the years - Let me know.

Congratulations on getting all of those lovely quilts finished up.  Maybe that will give me the incentive to get my pile of flimsies done.  Good idea to give them to the crisis center.  I've given some to the pregnancy crisis center too, but they just give them to the new moms for their baby.  I've also given them to the children's hospital to give to the sick little ones.  My next batch is gong to an orphanage for a fund raiser they have tis summer.  Let us know when your blog is updated--looking forward to seeing them.

Yes, I would like some of that fabric - whatever part of it you do not want to keep.  Thanks!  I will e-mail you my new address.  

Dee did you mean to post the hockey fabric to Cathy?

Your 10 quilts are amazing. I have been working on your applique wonder. DBIL says it looks amazing so far.  I have started sewing stuff for him as well so I work on yours when I can. We drove to New Mexico yesterday and I will be heading back to Colorado Tuesday.
