Friday night and I just finished hand sewing the binding on my last finished quilt!! In the last 2 weeks I have finished binding 3 quilts. 2 are on my guest room beds and the other is all set to give to my friend Tim who will arrive from Wisconsin for a weeks visit on Tuesday (05/28/12).

I have started a table runner for a friends wedding present that I hope to finish within the next couple weeks.

My quilting sister in law arrives tomorrow for a weeks visit so I will be busy with… Continue

I thought I would school myself to do a blog close to the end of every month...but as usual, life got in the way.

The quilt top I finished in January just came back from the longarmer and is stunning, I am sooo happy with the stitching she chose to use. It's just a simple all over meander but is the perfect choice for this quilt. I have it trimmed and ready for the binding to get sewn on.

We've been so busy trying to get things done around this house in the last couple months that… Continue

January is almost over and I believe I've accomplished a TON this month. 

1)  I've started a Block of the Month (that I've always wanted to do).  Actually I may have gotten a little carried away because I've started 2 now.  The first is through and it's a FREE tutorial and we're making 2 blocks per month.  The other is through my Quilt Guild and is a pieced block, the first one is "Barbara Fritchie Star", made up of half square triangles.  I have never done those before…

Debra - my birthday is the same month as yours (October)  I'm still missing 4 FQs from  Teresa Scanlon, Patricia Frappier, Cheryl Laughlin, and Ann Diane Sexton.  Did you receive from any of those people?  I'm wondering if I should contact them or just ignore it.  If you think I should contact them, would you please send me their email addresses?

Thanks, Nancy Burkhalter

Thanks for the welcome!  You're right, I did get the class free!  I purchased a couple of the quilting classes when they were half-price, and just remembered wrong!  I've started to build up my "stash", and it doesn't ever seem to be enough... I think I've definitely been bitten by the fabric bug already! LOL

Hi Debra - I actually have quite a bit of number of dies for the accuquilt but haven't used it as oftern as I would like because like everyone else life gets in the way.  The hex die is my newest die and I absolutely loved it!  I have also used my tumbler dies more than anything.  I love the tumbler quilts.  I made a twin size for my daughter and another for my neighbors granddaughter.  I am in the process of making another baby tumbler quilt for my friends new grandson who will soon arrive this August.  They are quick to cut and even quicker to put together.  I also have the apple core die which I started a project and sits as a UFO.  This one was also easy to put together because the die cuts out the points where you are to join the cores.  I love my accuquilt and hope to use it more.  I am totally hooked on and and have a new burst of energy to create and sew.  So I think I see more finished projects in the future then not.  Let me know how you like your accuquilt when you use it.  I also have a huge strip die - think the 5" die but haven't used it but now that I am re-inspired I may use it for the baby quilt I am about to start.

Hi Debra, Just posted pictures of my April Craftsy Blocks.  I am reasonably okay with them.  Put a lot of work into my hexie flower garden.  Sorry I haven't been using my pc much lately due to many problems with a virus.  My internet security program got it last night and so far everything appears to be working ok. Please add me to the group again.  I don't know what happened.  Julie.  Ps Love to see yours too!!!

Thanks Debra!  I just found this group and looked at pictures of all the BOM people have done already. They are all so beautiful!  I am so excited and have lots of catching up to do but I am hoping to  start them this weekend.  I will post pics as soon as I can. :)

Hi Debra, Thank you for the web sight. You quilts and block are very pretty. Terri

Back again briefly Debra,  Need to sleep.  It's 05.47am and my eyes are already closing.  Anyway thanks for your lovely comments.  I hope that the group also show us what their up to. Talk latter good night, and yes I know it's morning.  My brain prefers to sleep now.  I use to do a lot of night duty and so I tend to be a night owl sometimes.  Bye Julie.
