It is time for Sharing Quilt Projects #19 as I have several things I’m working on and have also received photos of some beautiful things I want to share.
We are having very cold weather here in Iowa and more snow is expected. I have been putting out extra bird seed and have gone through almost 30 pounds of black sunflower seed in a week.
Two of the stray cats show up every morning and night for food and more importantly water. I feel so sorry for them.
I put a tote out, turned it on its side, and even made a little roof to keep it dry. I filled it with straw and could see that they were using it. Now that the weather has turned so cold, I cut a large piece of polar fleece and put it in the bin. They are using it! I’ll be sure and take it out if it gets wet.
My Quilt Projects
Many times when I get quilting I work on several projects at once or I finish one and can’t wait to work on another. Are you that way?
Moon Glow Placemats
I gave you a peek at the Moon Glow table runner I was making and I ended up having 4 orphan blocks leftover that I made into placemats. I plan on writing up a tutorial for the table runner and the placemats.
Stained Glass Quilt
I was amazed at how many of you wanted me to write a tutorial about a stained glass quilt project. I finished a small one and have a page of notes of things to change before I share the tutorial.
T86 Campark Trail Camera
We have so much fun watching the birds and other animals. Somehow while I was on YouTube, I had a couple of videos pop up on trail cameras. I probably spent two or three hours learning about them and then bought the T86 Campark trail camera. The picture quality is awesome!
I got it all set up last night, it even has a WiFi connection so I can check on my phone to see if any animals or birds are on it. Right now it is too cold to leave it out but I may have to try it out for a little bit today.
Several weeks ago I talked about organizing my scraps and mentioned that I have been using the SewPad cushion while I sew and I think it has really helped me be able to sit at my sewing machine for a longer period of time. It gives better support for my back and hips.
Anyway, the company reached out to me and if you use the coupon code SEWCOMFY at checkout you’ll get free priority shipping. This is a great deal as the cushion weighs a lot. Sorry, this is only good for orders in the U.S. states.
Quilt Projects shared with me
It is always so much fun to see all of the beautiful quilt projects that you are making! f I didn’t show yours, I am so sorry and will try and get them in my next sharing post.
Dark Blue Rail Fence Table Runner
Miriam shared these photos of her beautiful table runner made with the Dark Blue Rail Fence tutorial. Her quilting was done by stitching in the ditch and instead of adding binding, she did a pillowcase type backing. Her vase matches perfectly!
Susan helped her little granddaughter make this beautiful fabric basket made with the Fabric Basket tutorial. It was supposed to hold Valentine Cards but is a little too small but perfect for other things.
Fabric baskets must be popular as Sherry also made one! Can you see the birds on the fabric? This is a gift for a friend. She left the corner pockets for pens and scissors.
Sherry also made this precious little trinket basket and sent it to me for Valentine’s Day! I thought it looked sweet with my plant in it.
She also suggested I write a tutorial and share it with all of you, thank you Sherry and I will!
Karen shared this sweet photo of her dog Morrie. She said normally Morrie won’t pose but this is the perfect picture! Morrie is a rescued dog.
After seeing the different fabric baskets, I went through a couple of totes yesterday looking for my baskets. What else I found is a whole other blog post! Anyway, here are a couple of my fabric baskets that should be out for Valentine’s Day.
