Sal Update – March

I’m sorry to say that I have no updated progress on my Santa Stocking.  I have been super busy putting together a summer camp program for my studio as well as teaching a class on memory quilts from t-shirts and have let time get away from me.

Please take a look at the others participating in this SAL as I’m sure they will have lots of great progress on their projects!  If you would like to join us, please contact Avis – her blog is the first one listed below.

Rag Rug #2

The second rag rug is off the loom.


Rag Rug #2

I am still having lots of tension issues so instead of continuing with the warp and the next rug, I rolled the warp all forward and re-rolled it back onto the back beam.  This time with paper between the warp strings instead of the card board strips.  We’ll see how that goes.


Twill for this rug.

I wove twill this time and really like the pattern, but it’s not as tight as the first one that was woven in even weave.



This one also has a hem instead of fringe which I like much better.  The third rug will have a hem and be woven in even weave.  I’m learning as I go!

HQAL Update-March & Slow Stitch Sunday

I haven’t been working on my Grandmother’s Flower Garden all that much lately.  It sits in it’s box near the couch, but I have not been bringing her out.  I did finish one flower – it is the same as another one that I made.img_5536

I had found lots of this orange fabric in my stash when I originally started this project.  I was planning on only doing a few different colors and had cut and prepped a few flowers that were the same.  Now I have change my mind and want to do lots of colors and have more of a scrappy quilt, but I decided to sew these together as they were ready to go. img_5537

This is the baggie for my next pieced hexagon.  This one has pieces that are much smaller than I have previously worked with so it should be a bit more challenging.

These are the details about the Hand Quilt A-Long in case you would like to join us!  And I am also joining up with the Slow Stitching Sunday Group.

This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another.  If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.
