Getting Tired of This….

I’m not sure about you but I am beginning to get tired of this Covid 19.

But I will stay home and quilt, how tortoreous is that?

Here are some quilts that I completed this past year.

I really like the colors of this quilt. I’m sorry that I don’t remember who created this

beautiful quilt.

She wanted this “Meandering Marigold” design all over the top. I called another

longarmer and she was gracious enough to let me know where I could purchase

the digital pattern, at My Creative Stitches.

I used a light taupe Omni thread for the top and the backing.

Nancy’s Quilt

Nancy made this for someone special who is currently living outside of Canada.

She’s hoping it reminds him of Canada and Muskoka.

A Maple Leaf design was stitched all over the top, it is great for a Canadiana quilt.

The BAcking

Christmas Panel

This Christmas Panel is so cool. I stitched snowflakes all over it.

The dog hanging out the window is pretty cool too.

Joan’s Quilt

Joan made this scrappy quilt. She is a very kind and generous person. All of her

quilts are donated to charity.

The Backing of the Quilt

The floral print matches the top perfectly.

Joan’s Quilt #2

Joan also made this quilt too. I think that flowers were stitched all over this quilt.

The backing of this quilt. Again it suits the top beautifully.

Hope you are staying safe and sane.

It’s funny because the highlight of my week is my husband going to Costco and

coming home with goodies to eat. Makes me feel like a kid again.

What are some things that are amusing you these days?

Have a good week.

Working away…..

Here are some of the quilts I completed several months ago. I am trying to catch

up on posting finished quilts.

Blue Quilt

I love the border in this Sampler quilt. Pieced borders take alot more time but

add so much more interest to the quilt, in my opinion.

A nice close up of the border area. I just remembered that Anna made this

quilt. She is a really quick piecer.

Here is what the back looks like. We used a pattern called “Soho” for the

quilting design.

Anna also made this quilt. I really, really like this pattern. It is  made

out of flannel fabric so it will be nice and toasty warm to cuddle up in.

A plaid design was stitched all over the quilt in a medium colored grey

polyester thread.

The backing

I love the red plaid fabric on the backing as well.

BAby quilt

This is a very colorful baby quilt. Butterflies were stitched all over the top.

You can even see some butterflies on the quilt top.

The backing

You have got to love the bright and cheerful color used for the backing of this quilt.

Anyone starting a new hobby? Stay safe and see you next week.

A Ribbon Quilt…

As promised, here is the ribbon quilt I was talking about last week.

My daughter made this quilt with most of her Fair ribbons.

FAir Ribbons

I didn’t think that the ribbons would be a problem stitching through and they

weren’t. It was my first ribbon quilt. There are not many of these around.

Julie’s Quilt

Julie made this cute sheep quilt. I really love all the colors and fabrics. How can you

not love a cute quilt like this?  It made me smile the whole time I was working on it.

“Popcorn” was the name of the design stitched all over the quilt. It kind of looks like

wool so that’s why it was chosen. We even went further and used a bright lime

green  polyester thread for the top and the backing.

Colorful Quilt

Here’s a colorful quilt I worked on recently.”Soho” is the name of the overall

stitching design on the quilt.

A close up for you. Love all the bright colors in this quilt.

Roopa made this quilt for her son. I’m not sure who designed the tiger

but it looks like something Violet Craft would make. She  designs alot of

fractured geometric patterns and this one fits  perfectly into this category.

I did manage to finish it yesterday so I will have to post some

pictures of the finished quilt, in all of its glorious texture.

Due to all that’s going on right now, I am trying to sketch daily.

Here is what I drew last week.

Can you guess all the items in the photo?

I have even started challenging  my kids to draw with me. It helps to take our minds off what’s

going on  and helps us to be able to do something together. My son isn’t  living at

home right now so it works out even better.

I read an article last week, that mentioned how Winston Churchill took up

painting, at the age of 40, while the second World War was going on. It

actually helped him to de-stress and get through the war.

What are you and your kids doing to stay busy and entertained? Maybe

try something you have done before? You may be pleasantly surprised.

Have a good week and stay safe.
