Midwinter Cozy Quilt


I am in-between projects right now so I decided to make this quilt Midwinter Cozy Quilt that has been on my bucket list for some time.

I found this free pattern at Moda Bake shop  here

As you can see by the pattern they show many options to make this quilt. table runner. doll quilt or a 16 block quilt.  I am going to try to use all of my fabric I have of this line of fabric so only time will tell what I make ;-)

You may remember my Nantucket quilt I made December 2013  I had a bag of leftover fabrics from the quilt  and a layer cake

This is the leftover fabric I had and what a way to use it all !

I made the 4 stars this morning and now I am starting to layout my fabrics to cut

As you can tell I LOVE the color Red :-D   I also recovered these char cushion for the back deck

Happy Sewing !

Update on Hampton Ridge BOM


Just finished completing  my month # 8 Hampton Ridge BOM . Now I have 33 of the 41 blocks completed   Yeahhh!

Saturday I spent all day cleaning & organizing my sewing room. It feels so good to have it done.  While organizing I made a pile of some fabrics to sell on Ebay .  I listed about 10 items so far and will be listing more Monday.  I have a link to my Ebay on the right side  of my blog with a little picture of a basket quilt I made

Wool & Needle handwork & the 4th of July

In the 4th of July mood this week !

I pulled a hamstring a couple of weeks ago so I decided to pull out this Buttermilk Basin wool & needlework handwork MARCH . A girl can not just sit around without some kind of needle work to do ;-)

I prepped all of my pieces Saturday and hubby drove me to the store to pick up the threads and beads  ( bronze small seed beads )I needed.  Sunday I made great progress on this little 8" x 8" piece and plan on finishing it today

This is what it looks like when it is done but I think I am going to add a fabric border to make a little wall hanging. Perfect for my sewing room

This is how I pulled my hamstring :-(   I planted 48 Vinca ground cover plants in my side garden below the deck.  The hill is on a slight slope .  I am glad to say that after 2 weeks it is feeling much better today but still have it on ice and staying off of it today. I need to continue on my Hampton Ridge blocks !  Can't stop now I am so close ;-)

We planted new climbing roses on our front yard trellis last fall and they are doing great.  They are called Orange Crush and have a beautiful bright orange  blooms

As you can see I have tying to the arbor as they grow to train them to climb

Did a little decorating on the front porch

No I did not make this quilt.  I bought  it on Ebay quite a dew years ago and I have it hanging in my sewing room.

 We are going to our Daughter & her hubby's for a family BBQ

What do you have planned for the 4 th of July ???????

Happy Sewing !
