I’ve used a ton of the Caron Big Cake yarn in the last couple years and have tons of it yet to use. Next | 40 blocks done, I need to make a decision about borders soon. I worked all night and half of the morning too but most of the site is back up. That just leaves 2 in the stack that needs attention -- much better than 9. You can see more information at this post. It’s a free pattern found on Ravelry – ZigZags Hat. Rae looked through my hat yarn when she was here and picked out a couple skeins she liked so I’ll start on a hat for her next. finish up instructions for the diamond string blocks -, Instructions for the twisted Happy Block quilt, 2 were set aside to be sent to Maine for binding and donating. I left it there for Chris and I wonder if he still has it. I don't have all the blocks done yet (just 16 more) but I've made progress. Tonight I went with a shell pattern and I think it’s going to work. The abscess on my face is about the same, but at least it’s no worse. I paid $105 for mine. 2 got bindings made and machine stitched - these are ready for me to hand stitch now. Just a simple square alternated with a 9 patch block and it’s the placement of the squares in the 9 patch that create the pattern. Block A - brown frames -… It’s a good pattern for fat quarters so I’m sure I’ll be using it again too. I’m going to stop and watch some football with Keith but I might just sew a little more tonight when he goes to bed. I'll quilt it and we'll donate it at Christmas along with another one we've already finished. 3 were trimmed, binding was cut, and they're set aside for me to take to the sew-in tomorrow. Of all the quilts I have here to bind, I didn't necessarily set out to bind 3 Happy Block quilts in a row but that seems to be how it worked out. First, a pineapple top pieced by Mom. Who knows, if it works well for HeartStrings, I might just do the same for my blog and my MaryQuilts.com site. The Quilts' Night Out has been compiled as a tribute to American quilt makers. So after setting my my site, I decided I would redesign the. I mentioned last week I have my routine here at Big Canoe … at least for now. Next | You might remember this quilt from a couple months ago. The ones I need are: Obviously, those are the two pages that aren't up on the site now too but I hope to get them done soon esp. It’s been a challenging week but I’m grateful for my family and many other blessings in my life. Bottom line, I got a little more sewing time in since I didn’t have to start cooking dinner this afternoon. (I didn’t watch the class but liked the quilt!). I taught Mom to make the Pineapple quilt from the. I'll report in and let you know how it's going. I now have two other patterns I’m anxious to try with other yarns, but they weren’t right for this one. List I have to pay more attention while knitting this one but I think it’s turning out cute. I only have 2 more pages to redo and they're the most difficult. I cut all my strips and started sewing my Sharon inspired HeartStrings blocks. I know some people get confused when I mention machine stitching binding but just to be clear, I machine stitch all my bindings to the front of the quilt and then fold it to the back and finish it with hand stitching. I’ve made at least 3 other blankets with this yarn and I’ve liked them all OK but I’m LOVING this yarn with the Shell Stitch Blanket. This top was pieced by LizA and is quilted with a pantograph -, I pieced batting, loaded, and quilted this HeartStrings top pieced by, You can see it drawn out in her free download --. Today, I started a new quilt and this evening a new blanket. I’ve made a ton of blankets over the last couple years (37 of them!) You can see I’ve made progress on the Granny Square quilt in the background. A small bump under the skin on my face quickly became a large abscess causing a significant amount of pain and swelling. Rae picked the yarn for this one. Progress is being made all around not that it was easy getting this blanket started. This one hung over the railing of the loft in our Marietta house around 2003-2006. Enter your email address to follow this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email. It comes in a green too so I’m sure I’ll eventually make one of these in that color too. I had several comments about it and people seemed confused, thinking it was a different quilt than the one on the Twisted Irish Chain class handout I’d shared. I have an annual membership to Craftsy that I’m debating whether to continue or not. I'm no longer updating this blog but I'm still blogging and you can find me here: Please update your links and visit me at: I'll be playing with the layout and adding in the rest of my links over the next week or so but from this point -- all my posts will be there. Since I had lime green thread on the longarm from the Happy Block top I quilted last night -- I decided to put another one on and use the same thread. Lots of fun stuff in the mail today. I do view class segments when I’m looking for something specific in quilting, crochet, or knitting so it can be a good resource but I have yet to watch a class from start to finish and I’ve done only a project or two from any of them. Keith is fine with me cooking our Thanksgiving meal tomorrow after I get the temporary crown. I recently saw a question about the best chair for sewing in one of the groups I occasionally follow and thought I’d share my favorite chair. This yarn comes in variegated colorways too but for this pattern I like the single color ones … I’ve done a pink blanket and a yellow blanket and I have blue yarn waiting. I really recommend this method for making them. I'll still have to reload the photos and cut and paste the text in but I keep all my photos used in a tutorial in their own folder already resized for the page so it won't be difficult. And I’m thrilled because I’ve finally found the perfect pattern for the Caron Cotton cake yarn. I sort my strings by color in the bins to the right but as you can see from the bin in front and the strings on the floor I haven't sorted recently -- that's where all the bits and pieces get tossed while I'm sewing. These are a “planned” version using 8 fabrics versus our scrappy HeartStrings quilts and it’s always fun to see how they turn out. Had to get up to walk Chesty (yes in the middle of the night!) If you’ve tried to save the file and it still won’t open, you can email me at the address below and I will send you the file by email. I ordered another office chair that had all the same features EXCEPT it’s cloth and not leather … not the best choice with all the strings but it will work for now. Feel free to email me at : mmcjohnson@gmail.com with any questions. After antibiotic shots in both hips … and a script for more, I was sent home. ugh. The idea for this quilt came from a Craftsy class and as usual, I modified size and setting to suit my needs. He just doesn't know what's going on around here....I finally headed up to bed around 5PM after getting about 6 hours sleep in the last two days but woke up at 1AM. and found some yarn/pattern combinations that I really like too. Sheree has come to my rescue again and will bind these 3 for me. The Lion Brand Big Scoop yarn looks great with the Blanket Stitch pattern. Amid all the computer drama yesterday and today I did manage to make a few more diamond string blocks AND I finished binding and labeling this HeartStrings quilt. I usually don't border my string quilts but I think I want this larger without having to make it 2 rows wider. I like these quick projects. I finished the Granny Squares top today so I’m all ready to start my HeartStrings sew along tomorrow. I think I need one of those animal hair brushes to see if I can clean them off. I'm saving the main pages with the same file names so those links will work if you've bookmarked them but if you bookmarked the link to the PDF files, you'll have to update them because they have new link addresses. This was the first time this summer I wrote down a *to do* list and I checked off everything (and more) with a couple hours to spare. The first one that was on my lap is a Log Cabin quilt from the book Best of Black Mountain Quilts. Home/Join | The one that is thrown across the arm of the loveseat in the photo is a Pineapple Blossom quilt, from a free pattern found on Bonnie Hunter’s site. At one point I had two different projects on different skeins trying to decide between them and I frogged a couple false starts too.
