Off the Top of my Head


Last time I posted I forgot to show my latest finish.  Sorry it isn’t a better photo.  This quilt is from the book “History Repeated”

Since my last post I attended a retreat and I worked on putting together my first half of the Nearly Insane quilt from the book by the same name by Liz Lois.  I also worked some more on my Lily Rosenberry quilt.

Currently I have finished making the cute little 2 inch Cake Stand blocks from Temecula Quilt Company blog.  I bet a lot of you also made them.  I am patiently waiting on the setting they suggest or I might make some more and use a setting I have in mind.  They are like potato chips you can’t just make one!

A few minutes ago I just catalogued an entire shelf of my quilting books in a very short time.  I have started using this software – I have no connection but I am a happy customer.  If you have an iPhone or iPad you can buy the less expensive version and you will be able to sync between the two.

I have some left over Lost Ship Blocks that I am going to set in a stripy quilt but I want to tea dye them to blend better with some other fabric.  I needed some fabric for this project and a very nice lady did a Random Act of Kindness and sent me some.  We know quilters are the best!  So I will post that later.

I told you this post was just off the top of my head.  Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time

Pat, every single one of your projects is absolutely gorgeous! I am always amazed by how much you are able to get done. Obviously, you don't goof off :)

You get so much done, and so well. I think I slaw a lily with that setting and binding completed...maybe your stitching group?
Lovely projects - thank you for sharing.

Love ALL your projects, esp the Lila apt that her name contained the word "berry"!! Have only made one little 2" basket block so far but hope to make more this coming Winter....looking forward to More Sewing Time when life slows down in the Winter!
