UFO Saturday


Well, we had our online UFO group Saturday and I was able to get enough blocks sewn together for two and a half quilts. One and a half red & White and one Blue & White. All are AmHero quilts and the center block is white P&B fabric to have people sign them. They’re (obviously) signature quilts:) I’d hoped to get more done, but I goofed up on the first one I was working on and had some frogging to do. I only posted one picture ’cause Blogger won’t let me post the second:) Hope everyone is getting ready for fall. It’s about 85 here in CA today down from 100 yesterday! and the days before that. This week is going to be cool and then it’s supposed to stay in the mid to low 80’s. I sure hope so. We’ve got a good chance of another triple digit day or two before fall actually really hits us:)

Finished Quilts




I finally got my machine working again and I’m elated! The first two quilts are for AmHero’s and the third one is my neighbor Sonja Muenger with her Christmas Present in July! lol My machine went bonkers the first of Dec. so I never got it quilted, so finally getting the machine back in working condition after all this time I was able to finish it. She knew she had something coming, just didn’t know what it was:) So we took it over to her the other day and she was very happy with it. I was very happy to have it done and able to give it to her! lol

Finished One Top


I finished the first AmHero’s top this afternoon. I have a second one that should be done tomorrow then this week I can get them quilted. The sooner the better as they’re very much needed right now. Sue Nebeker is asking for any help with long arm quilting and quilts asap. So if you can help be sure to contact her.

Went Up To My Sister Sonja’s Yesterday



In spite of a rotten cold and feeling like I’d been hit by a Mac Truck we went up to my sister’s house yesterday. She and I played most of the day but then we got down to business and worked on this AmHero’s quilt. The white blocks you see are only a few of the thirteen Signature blocks that will go in the quilt. Sonja named the quilt “Thirteen Stars and Stripes” for the thirteen signatures. I think it’s going to come out pretty nice. It will have about a three inch border around it when done. You can tell I’m feeling great today, I’ve been up since four (couldn’t breath laying down) and I’m out in the living room and now posting this! lol Oh well, the cold get’s a little better every day. I’m sure glad we went up though.

OH!! The Stitch Regulator came home yesterday for my quilting machine! So as soon as I’m up to it I can connect that back up and I’ll be set to go on my quilting machine/frame…once again!!! lol yaaaaaay!

Am Hero quilt almost done



I almost completed this AmHero quilt I was working on. I did it during a sew a thon with my UFO group. We sew once a month (and holiday’s for those that can). We start at ten in the morning, check in every two hours and finish sewing at six in the evening. So far I’ve gotten a lot accomplished and I love it! Thanks Susan!

Finished Up This UFO AmHero top


Believe it or not I started this top about a year ago. During one of my “let’s get organized” days, I put it in a plastic container to keep it together. Yup, it took me this long to find it again. Mainly because it was right in front of my nose! I must have moved that plastic container at least two dozen times not realizing that’s what was in it! lol duuuh a Sr. Moment. lol Now the top is done and I just need to get some backing fabric and get it quilted. With any luck I’ll have my own machine/frame up in the next two weeks or so and be able to do it myself.:) Have a grat day all!
