Angels Quilt and Spring

Hi Friends!
Another row!
Looks like I need to cut some more!
They still say we are in a drought!
Can you believe that?
You sink into the soaked ground  every where.
Just because we didn't get much last month.
Signs of spring.
And buttercups are every where the sun hit's. mine or on the North end of our house so doesn't bloom until later. I have seen them by the road.
But the tulips are growing good.
Year before last we didn't get any rain and my hosta died so the rest of them are coming up good.
They came up first so shaded all the rest.
Have a good weekend

Angel's Quilt

Hi friends!
I worked a while yesterday on Angels quilt.
I think I will have to make some more blocks , maybe tomorrow.

I may have enough done to make one more row , hope I don't have to order some more of this color just to finish.
Going to send her a message!
She sent me two pictures.

I kind of like the first one myself!

Angel's Quilt

Hi friends!
I did a bunch of sewing the blocks together yesterday.
The shower is in use!
But the tile needs to be replaced where they took it up and the wall at the other end needs  tile putting up and putting a new door up.. Then he will be finished . The door we had up opens the wrong way for that shower. , but his back is acting up!
He told s-i-l yesterday that I loved it so much I was taking two baths a day.
I was!
I really missed my showers! Really believe that it gets your blood flowing to all parts of your body and makes you feel better. Helps with pain to!
Going to make a row today to see how many it takes to make a queen sized quilt.Then I will either make more or start putting rows together.
I got a sweet card and these roses this morning, he wanted to know if I wanted to go out and eat but I said no ! We will just have a steak dinner here.
No flu germs!
Happy Valentines .

A Mess

Hi friends!
Looks like a bird taking flight!
Made the second one Sunday night.
We went to town Monday and did some shopping and Tommy had a Dr. apt. and we were ready to rest when we got home.
So that's what we did. The sewing machine wasn't even turned on.
My dining room all last week while they were putting in our new shower.
At least lots of that is gone now but he still has a bunch of work to do.
Right now he is babying his back , you know how that goes! At out age every thing we do hurts.
A cold drippy day , the kind that goes to your bones!
Rain in the forecast for all this week!

Angel's Quilt

Hi friends!
Still making tri-angles! For my sweet Angel.
Put together my first block.
Love how these go together , wouldn't know how much work it takes to make them.
This is how I learned to make them and still make them this way. Draw a line cross ways .
Sew on both sides of the line!
Cut on the line!
Iron open.
Trim, the most used ruler I own!
Sew four together  in this pattern and starch and iron them.
Takes a bunch to make one row queen sized across!

Vicky and "Trouble" eating fudge.
This is Bonnie holding her 20 year old grandsons baby quilt she made for him years ago.
Diann and her hand appliqued bird house wall hanging.
Mostly this meeting was for planning what we were going to make for others this year.
Susan bough a bunch of fabric for us to  put into a service man a quilt. We will decide what block each of us will make before next meeting. You always feel much better after our monthly meeting.

Angel's Quilt

Hi friends!
Yesterday I cut and sewed more on Angels quilt.
This is what i had made already!
This is what I have now, plus a hurting  back from cutting, that's why I usually just cut a few blocks at a time.
Our new shower!
It has no water to it yet!
That's how far they got yesterday! Bobby is working out on the mountain today.
So hubby has it by himself today!

Tatum's Quilt

Hi friends!
I had gotten a package of stabili-tee but that didn't last long. It's very good!
But since it takes so long to order it and get it I has some  fuse-able interfacing and used it for the last few t-shirts.
I laid these out to see how many more I needed to cut up.
All of them!~ Amy did real good on getting up the right amount of shirts.
I think I may do this quilt-as-you-go.
Construction is still going on, Tommy and Bobby  said maybe tomorrow.They are putting the shower in right now but still need to buy the thing right behind the handle to turn the water on to the shower.
The main thing that was leaking.

Allie's Quilt and a mess

Hi friends!
She loved it!
Our construction zone!
We had a leak in the wall from the shower plumbing. We couldn't see it but it leaked down and rotted out the floor under the tub and wall. My desk top is about five feet away from that wall! Years ago Tommy was sawing in there and messed up my computer so I have been covering it!
That's cats fabric.
Better safe than sorry!

Tatum's t-shirt quilt

Hi friends!
Started cutting t-shirts yesterday.
This is for Tatum's t-shirt quilt.
You remember I made her a quilt with her college colors for her birthday last thanksgiving.
We went to see "Shrek" . Tatum produced that play. It was so funny!
That's why she is in Oklahoma for their drama department.
I laid them out on our bed to see if i have enough for a queen sized quilt.
Still got a few more to cut.
Waiting for measurements from Krissy's but I may start cutting for Angels this weekend.
Have a good weekend
