Quilting and Piecing

The last of customer quilts is done. I had to learn a new skill  – masking. That’s when stitching out an edge to edge design you mask a spot you don’t want to stitch.

It’s not the best picture, but the “straight” lines is the boundary where I told the computer to skip.

Once I got past the masked area, I was able to do a bit of piecing.  These are the rest of the pieces for “Louisa Lattice”.  I also finished one Easy Breezy block.

40 Day Challenge – Day 3

Yes, I skipped Day 2.  I was playing with the Sherwin-Williams app. My room needs updating  – starting with ripping out the old powder blue carpet. The curtains are from when we moved into the house 21 years ago. I’d like something dramatic, but whatever I go with paint wise it has to go with my quilts and the bedframe can’t blend into the wall. Merlot may be the ticket.

In addition to these two quilts (Egg Money an Eleanor Burns pattern  & En Provence a Quiltville Mystery quilt) I will also have my black, blue, gray & white Frolic (also a Quiltville Mystery quilt) and a Hancock Fabrics BOM which I’m enlarging.

So what did I get done on Day 3? I bound the Customer quilt (delivering it Sunday afternoon) and made a pillowcase to go with it.

I also bound Sister Swap # 3.


That leaves the following:

  • A customer’s quilt – binding needs to be pressed, then can be attached and stitched down 6/6/2020
  • Allietaire – plan do do both scallops and a 2 color binding.
  • Narragansett Blues
  • Sister Swap # 3 – The binding is made just needs to be attached and stitched down 6/6/2020
  • Then & Now
  • Baby 4-Patch Stacked Posies
  • Tablerunner – Finally figured out what I am going to use
  • The quilt with the striped backing needs a label and delivered
  • I’m behind on my Star Studded BOM. I have fabric for 11 or 12 large blocks and 23 6-inch blocks.
  • The log cabin quilt needs to be quilted bound and labeled.
  • The blue, black and white quilt is my Frolic the goal is to finish the top.
  • Although not quilting, there are 9 pair of pants which need to be shortened.
  • Bonus #1 – Pillowcases:
    • the customer quilt 6/6/2020
    • Allietaire
    • Narragansett Blues
    • Log cabin quilt (2)
  • Bonus #2: Pillowcases for quilts already completed
    • Christmas Crazy 8s
    • On Ringo Lake
    • En Provence (2)
    • Carolina Chain
    • Good Fortune
  • Bonus #3: Quilt, bind, label and make pillowcase (2) for Frolic.

My plan for tomorrow is to tackle the first pair of pants and bind the tablerunner.

40 Day Challenge – Day 1

I have the binding attached to the customer quilt.  This quilt is 96 x 107, so there is a lot of binding to do. I’m using Susie’s Magic Binding which means I should be able to finish it tonight.
