OK,, 1 more quilt.. and No, I have not finished the last pillow case!

it's a tad hard to see.. but this one is in the harvest gold & brown colors from the Maryjane fabric line..

it's 42x72",, perfect for the recliner chair that my DH, dog and kat commander! lol!
I bought the backing fabric today,, it matches the golden yellow in the fabric perfectly!
Then maybe I will get around to finishing up the last pillow!
Oh and notice the red/green Christmas fabric underneath?, yep, that would be the Christmas quilt (from 2 years ago) that needs to be finished!

I always seem to find a reason not to get something done...

Beautiful blanket Vanessa. It looks so warm and snugly.

Heather, those aprons are SO CUTE!! There is just something so wonderful about Christmas fabric. Could you make another one so you both can have an apron? I bet you could even sell a couple of those too!

Theresa -- Thank you for looking that up. It was a fun magazine, if kind of pricey. Sorry to see it go.

Heather, I love your aprons. I had never heard of Apronology but googled it and this is what it says

Apronology has been retired, but you can still pick up back issues starting from $9.99. We have absolutely loved producing this magazine over the years and appreciate your continued support.

Apronology came up under pinterest also.

Wow! love those aprons. Makes me want to get busy making some. To many projects already started, guess I'll wait till things calm down or I finish my quilt...LOL

I love aprons. There used to e a magazine called "Apronology". I don'y know if it is still around as our bookstore closed so we don't get to browse anymore.

Those aprons are cute, Heather. Is the squares one a one-piece fabric or squares sewn together?

Nice quilt, Vanessa.

Love the quilt. I'm attempting my first full size one this year for Christmas.

Here's some aprons I finished so far.

This one is for my niece. We make cookies together almost everytime she is here. I'm going to put together a recipe book for her and some cookie cutters too.

This one was supposed to be for my sister in law, but I REALLY like it. And you can't ever have too many aprons so....not sure who will end up with it.

I have the fabric picked out for a couple more. Just need a few more hours in the day LOL!

Theresa, those butterfly blocks are beautiful. I bet your quilt will be so pretty when you make it.

StitchinWitch Posted - Oct 11 2019 : 9:25:38 PM
Very pretty. It probably wouldn't have worked too well with mine as they were mostly whitework embroidery that wouldn't show up well like the colored embroidery.

I have a few handkerchiefs that have worn out which I want to make into quilt blocks.

Judith, I know what you mean. What I love about the butterfly quilt is it really showcases them. This is not mine but shows how I am going to do them.

I had a laquered handkerchief box that belonged to my maternal grandmother and filled it with handkerchiefs from my paternal grandmother and great aunts. So pretty -- drawn threadwork, embroidery, tattied and crochet edgings. I couldn't bring myself to alter them so I gave them to my Granddaughter who loves vintage linens.

Judith, I also start in the center. I have been working on this quilt for 6 years. Just now getting to go around the edge then bind and I will be done. I don't think I will ever do a King size whole quilt again. LOL. I think I have decided to work on Grandma's handkerchief butterfly quilt next. I've had my Grandma's hankies for a while now and I think it will make a nice gift for my daughter. At least it won't take more than a year or two to finish. LOL

Grace, that actually sounds like fun! Both now and as a granny lol! Love your pillowcases.

It's finally the weekend and we have nowhere to be, so I can enjoy some more crafting while my kids play with their Halloween projects. It's been a long week for us with preschool and my little baby getting a cold. She is finally on the mend and no longer cranky and clingy.

StitchinWitch Posted - Oct 11 2019 : 11:24:14 AM
I don't hand quilt. Do you always start around the edge? I always start my machine quilting in the center. I guess they are different methods so different techniques.

atkinst2 Posted - Oct 11 2019 : 07:59:07 AM
Judith, yes they are but are a ton of work. Started around the edge so it won't be long now.

Grace, I feel it! Lol. This year is going to be extra special for me, because my oldest is understanding Santa and is excited to make Christmas cookies, gingerbread houses, and such, so my goal is to have all my Christmas projects done before December 1st that way I can focus of the fun stuff with him rather than rushing and stressing over getting all my stuff done. Basically I'm overloading my self now to make it happen. Lol. I did start the diamond painting last night and got quite a bit done. It's going to be an easier one. I just need to keep up my pace.
