Wedding Quilt Part 9

Well I best get busy with PK's quilt.
Her Wedding Shower is July 17th  ! !
YIKES ! ! ! That doesn't give me much time.

All the blocks are now quilted
and squared up.
The front of the blocks
will look like this:

The back of the blocks
will look like this:

Now it is time to start on the sashing.
Thanx to the GO! Cutter 2-1/2" Die,
cutting the 27 strips of the pink fabric
27 strips of the blue fabric didn't take
that much time at all.

Then to chain stitch the strips together.

And make one BIG LONG strip of fabric.

Tomorrow I will make one BIG LONG
strip of the blue fabric.
After I cut the excess fabric and
press the fabric in half, I will be ready to
sew the sashing to the blocks.

Thanx for stopping by

Until next time ! !

Table Toppers ! !

Mom and I are trying are best to
use up ALL of her scraps of Fabric.

mom had just recently bought a GO ! ! !
and of course a few Dies.

Out of the Chisel Die we cut
lots of Chisel Fabric out of the scraps.

Then another day we designed and sewed
the chisels together.

I believe we made about 7 strips of Chisels.
Then we sewed 2 strips together to make
Table Topper (or whatever).

Mom was nice enough to do the quilting.


Thanx for stopping by.

Till Next time ! !

More Mug Rugs

RC came to help out with the bush removal,
but RJ had that job done in 20 minutes.
Since the bushes had grown there for about
15 years, I thought it was gonna take
awhile to remove them.

RC is a handyman and I do need a couple
of things done around the house.

I showed him the gate that goes under my deck
needed to have the lattice work removed and
then boards put up in its place.
And also my mailbox needed to more stable.

RC would not let me pay him sooooo . . .
he got a mug RC.

Since his wife was driving him
around that day, she also got a mug rug.

Till next time ! !

Behind on my posting to my blog.

So I will hopefully post a few quick
posts with pics to get caught up.

Back in February-ish
Mom and I made some
Flour Sack Tea Towels.

Mom and I split the
tea towels between us.

Here are a few pics . . . .

We got rid of quit a few
border strippy fabric pieces.

But still had enough to make a few
more flour sack tea rowels
when my sis came out to visit in March.

Till next week.
