Sewing Support

And how do you do that .... with quilts of course.
To show support for the Humboldt Broncos and the community of Humboldt I as well as a couple friends have begun putting some quilts together to send  love and hugs to those suffering from the accident and also to those who were involved with the team.

Spring stitching

A springtime postcard to remind us that it is spring even though we have snowbanks in the front yard.... back yard too.

l am doing the free motion quilt challenge with Angela Walters here are weeks 7 and 8 samples

I have put together a quilt that I thought would be a good one to teach as a learn to quilt class. Sample made and quilted. 

Sew that's all for now 
 Happy stitching

More FMQchallenge with Angela and more

Since my last post there has been 2 more lessons, curves and arcs, and leaves. I will practice my filled leaves a bit more . Here's my home work

In the end we will have a nice sampler quilt of fmq designs.

I have also been working on my blocks for the BOM 2018 from Quilt Doddle Design. Sew far each large pieced snowball block features snowmen and a story as she reveals the block. I have done some hand stitching and have to add some accent buttons,which I may try making.

Sew far these last few quilts have been from my stash of fabrics that have been used before but with lots leftover. It's nice to use some of them up, now to work on some more ufo's.

One of the scrappy quilts

Last year I saw this quilt and decided it would be a good one to try out. I picked up the 2 colors of contrast fabrics and had them hanging in a bag for ...oh ... about six months.

Turning this

Back to stitching ..... Hope to have the blocks put together tonight.

Ready for binding

Almost out of thread
After a few years of picking away hand quilting, this morning I have it off the hoop and ready to look for a binding.
This was a block of the month I did with the local quilt shop. I added dimensional star in the center corner stones.
Now to find another if I to tackle while I continue to work on making my scraps into so drying useful.
Have a great Sunday.
