High Fiber—Cutting Up and Getting Out

The main activity for this week was my "Reflections of Butterflies in Lemonade" quilt top.







I started this quilt on Tuesday. It's the Disappearing Hourglass block from Missouri Star's Quilt Block magazine, the latest issue. There's also a video of how to make it on…

High Fiber—UFO-a-go-go.

I had several irons in the fire this week, but the big news is, I'm coming down the home stretch on my Delectable Pathways quilt.

I got the top pretty much put together yesterday. I still have some appliqué to do on leaves that cross over seams. There are also two seams to sew, left…

This week brought this wonderful book into my life, Tudor Roses (2013 edition) by Alice Starmore.

High Fiber—Confessions of an Obsessive Project Starter

I'm really, really, trying to finish up some UFOs before starting any new projects. However, with two grandsons coming up on second birthdays, I'm under the gun to make two I-spy quilts. 

This week I started cutting out 4.5" squares for both quilts. So far, I have 31 cut for each. I need 25 more. I…

High Fiber—Close Calls

As always after a trip, there's lots of laundry and cleaning to do. I managed to make some progress on my appliqué project, though.

There was a lot of laundry to do when we got back, especially with the extra towels for the kids. Our ancient Maytag washer has taken to only liking to run one load…

High Fiber—A-bobbin, A-weavin', A-spinnin' and A-quiltin'!

High Fiber—Winter Projects

We were supposed to have Vintage Stitchers at my house last Thursday, but DH is still down with a bad cold, one we would rather not share with our friends. Barbara stepped in (she was my backup in case of snow) and hosted us at her house. Ellen is back in town and brought her Hibiscus quilt top to give to Julie for quilting.…

High Fiber—Done With Winter!

Well, spring has finally arrived at my house. I should have tulip photos next week. In the meantime, I'm making progress on the dragon appliqué.

The body is almost finished. The nose is just resting on the appliqué. I have to sew it on and do the nostrils in reverse-appliqué, as I did for the eyes.…

Eek, Steek and a Peek at Some Other Things...

The big news this week is (drumroll, please) I finally steeked DH's Fair Isle sleeveless cardi! Ta-da!





Before I could do that, I had to graft the shoulders. It was just like doing the toe of a sock, only more sts.







Then I had to give the extra sts a haircut on the inside. Here's… Continue
