The Rainbow HeartStrings quilt was bound and labeled a few days ago but this was the first chance I had to photograph it. Pantograph is Steam and it’s UFO #17 finished this year!


An unexpected overnight visit to the other FL coast leaves me behind but I did get started on my packing for Maine – lots of sewing stuff, quilts, Finn’s food, meds, clothing, crate … our clothing, knitting stuff, a sewing machine and a tying table … the car will be packed to the gills! Just two more days to get it all together!


This Twisted Pinwheel doll quilt was finished the other night. One more marked off my list! It was made from some leftover blocks I found while unpacking stuff from Big Canoe and I think it would make a cute quilt so I’ll add it to my list.



Two tops have been bound …

The first Happy Block top, backed with Cuddle donated to HeartStrings by Shannon Fabrics. It’s my 15th UFO finish for the year so even though I feel like I’m working more slowly this year I’m making good progress.


And the Chinese Coins Doll quilt.




Even with the points cut off on the edges, I still love this spool quilt. It’s UFO number 14 for the year so I’m making some progress.

There are brief instructions for this quilt on my website along with a photo from eBay of the original vintage quilt that inspired it. 


Another top is on the longarm and already partially quilted so that’s even more progress made. I don’t expect to get any sewing done next week or the week after due to a lot of appointments next week and the isolation period following my radioactive iodine treatment scheduled for Sept 6 so we’ll see how much I can get done in the next couple days.


The Hourglass quilt is bound. It’s an easy quilt to piece using the Accuquilt quarter square triangle die – my blocks finish at 4 inches but they have other die sizes too. Did you know that a flying geese is made from a quarter square triangle? I have a 3×6 inch geese die that would make a 6 inch finished hourglass block that I might try one of these days.

You can find some brief notes for this quilt on my website.


This is my 13th UFO finish for the year, the top was pieced in 2016, the border was added last week and now it’s done! The finished quilts are piling up again, I need to get some washed and donated.


I finished binding this Jelly Roll quilt a couple days ago and it even has a label.


And I bound this small doll size tumbler quilt right after finishing the one above.
