TGIFF! ~ Good Will

Today I get to host the Thank Goodness It’s Finished Friday Linky party! If you are here for the party, welcome! At the end of this post, please link up your recent finishes. Visit a few blogs and leave some love. ❤️

My Good Will quilt is finished and Good Will seemed like the perfect name for it since that is where I purchased the top.

I appreciate all the input on how to quilt this. I was so torn. I loved Modern Wave, but it felt too modern. This comment hit home; it was what I was feeling, but couldn’t put into words.

And I love how it turned out.

This top has so many fun fabrics in it!

My quilt inspector approved.

I’m so pleased with this top! I think it looks great on my guest bed.Please click on the link below to share your finishes!

Time to Buckle Down!

It feels lately like I’ve been maniacally flitting from one project to the next and finishing very little.

I stitched up a few more of these.

I finished Clue #1 for the Mystery Quilts 4 Military.

I’ve futzed around with Daughter #3’s quilt.

I’ve been working on some cleaning and rearranging in the house. Now it’s time to buckle down and get this Minecraft quilt done.

I have sashing and cornerstones cut and hope to share some real progress real soon!

Have a great day!

BQF 2018 ~ Entry #2

Today I’m sharing my second entry for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival hosted by Amy at Amy’s Creative Side. I made this quilt last spring for E3, my fifth grandson.

All the fabrics in the top were hand dyed by me. I really enjoyed free motion quick this!

It was fun to add little details in the quilting.

I used an older American Jane print for the back.

Make sure you head over to Amy’s Creative Side to discover new blogs and to see many wonderful quilts!

Have a great day!

Blogger’s Quilt Festival Fall 2018

Once again, Amy from Amy’s Creative Side is hosting the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. If you are here visiting from her page, welcome! I hope you will take a look around while you are here.

Regular readers may remember this quilt that I finished earlier this year for my niece’s wedding gift. It is one of my favorite quilts ever so I decided to share it for BQF.

I kept the piecing simple because this quilt was all about the quilting for me.

I love this backing fabric by Tim Holtz.

I loved quilting all those feathers!

Click here to see all the other entries. And come back tomorrow to see my second entry.

Have a wonderful day!

DWMonday ~ Mystery Quilts for Military – Mosaic

Alycia over at Alycia Quilts is again hosting a Mystery Quilt for Military Quilt Along. This one is called Mosaic. You can find the fabric requirements here. These are the fabrics I’m using.

The directions for Clue #1 can be found here. I am sewing along, but I’m using my dies. Alycia graciously gave me permission to share the dies I am using here.

Here are my cut pieces for Clue #1.

I love that the dies have clipped corners which making lining the pieces up so easy.

I will always find a way to use my Accuquilt dies and die cutter because I love the accuracy.

Right now, Studio dies are on sale, Buy One Get One Free, and the Studio Die Cutter is $200 off until September 19th.

I have several more of these blocks to make and I’ll be prepping for Craft Night tonight so I better get to work.

Have a great day!

This and That Sunday

A quilting friend needed purple scraps. I found some for her, put them in a baggie and now I can’t find the baggie. Ugh.

We painted rocks at our last church craft night. The ones the other gals did were so amazing! Mine are pretty humble, but it was fun.

Some of you commented about my finding treasures in the drawers of my newly refurbished card catalog. And you were right!

I love listening to audio books. I listened to this on my trip home from Wisconsin and I really enjoyed it.

I stopped at a quilt shop on the way and picked up these 20 fat quarters for only $10! They should make some fun baby quilts.

I grew up Catholic, though I attend a nondenominational church now. When I was home, I went to mass with my sister at the church I went to as a child. They have recently remodeled much of it. But the parts I loved most have remained the same.

And the homily that the priest gave was the exact message I needed to hear that day.

This is a terrible photo, but one day last week, I looked out my back window to see this cardinal family. I had never seen a momma, daddy, and baby together before.

I hope you have a wonderful day!

Happy National Jelly Roll Day!

Did you know this was even a thing? Moda was the inventor of jelly rolls, a a lovely roll of 40-42 2 1/2 inch wide strips, one from each print of a collection. Other fabric companies jumped on board , though their rolls are known by other names. Copyright and all that. Anyway, in honor of the day, I thought I would share a few jelly roll quilts that I have made.

Did this put you in the mood to break open one of your own jelly rolls? I hope so! They really are fun to work with.

And if you don’t have any jelly rolls, you are in luck! Fat Quarter Shop is having an amazing sale with jelly rolls up to 40% off to celebrate the day. Click the link to head to their homepage, click on the menu, then “On Sale”, and then choose jelly rolls. The sale is only good through tomorrow. While you are there, check out their daily Flash Sale.

Yes, these are affiliate links, which means when you purchase something after clicking through, I receive a small commission which helps to offset the cost of the blog.

Now, go unroll that jelly roll you’ve been saving! Have a great day!
