Red House on the Frame

I had one more bobbin of that wrong color that I wound the end of August.  I'm using it up on quilting this Red House mini that was also a wrong block made. 



Hmmmm.  I see a pattern here.  It's my mid 50's (52) brain functioning...  I'm getting used to it.  Better yet, my husband is getting used to it too.

More Kim Diehl Inspiration

I was going through photos on my phone and deleting things I didn't really need (schedules and such...)  I found this photo of a Kim Diehl pattern.  I LOVE it!  I'm saving this for a future reference.  As long as it's on my blog and I can search it, I can find it.  Whee... modern technology in the cloud.

Six Blocks from RSC for a Charity Crib Quilt


I forgot the name of this quilt block.  It was one of my RSC pipe dreams way back when... 2014?  2015?  I have six blocks of it.  Two of the purple blocks need the sashing pieces.  Looks like a good set of blocks for a charity crib quilt.

Scrap Saturday

It's been a while since I've posted for Scrap Saturday.  I have been busy working on my RSC projects here and there.  This week I made a few four-patch unites for my Go Four It quilt.

 
The bottom strips are for my Garden Party blocks (a Bonnie Hunter pattern).  Hopefully I'll have some of those done in orange next week.

Slow Sunday Stitching

This week I also completely finished one of the projects I worked on a lot last year in my to-go bag.  You can read all about it here.  It's called Welcome Home Sampler.  It is in the book, Welcome Home ~~ Surround Yourself With Country Warmth, by Cheryl Wall.  It's one of my two first needle turn applique projects.



I have the embroidery bear project for when I am waiting in the truck.  Here's a new project I recently added to my school bag.  This is a pattern by Kim Diehl in her book,  Simple Charm.  Yes, those are the scraps left over from the other Kim Diehl project that I did, Homestead Harvest.  Read all the details here.  It was my other first needle turn applique project (I had two going at the same time.)

I put all the snowball blocks together and started a row...



Here's what I have this week with me in my bag...



It looks like this in her book:




Linking up at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.  Come join the fun!  It's all happening here this week.

Welcome Home Sampler -- A Friday Finish

I have finished this cozy quilt.  Welcome Home Sampler is in the book, Welcome Home ~~Surround Yourself With Country Warmth, by Cheryl Wall.

 
I quilted it with the Baptist Fan giant template board (by Circle Lord.)  The top is a light blue plaid shirting.  The bottom is a green/brown plaid.  I used a rust-colored thread for the quilting.

 
 It measures 62" wide by 69" tall.  This was one of the first projects I took with me when I was learning to needle turn applique.  I remember taking it to speech, school, and swim lessons (among other things.)

Blue House on the Frame

Still using up that bobbin thread after quilting my Welcome Home Sampler (from yesterday's post) I threw the Blue House on the longarm frame.  I'm keeping it simple and quilting it with the Circle Lord Baptist Fan giant template board.


This will get moved to the binding stage pile.  It will be a nice, fast finish someday...
