My Quilt Project
Have you been working on anything new this week? I have continued to make blocks for my Jewel Box quilt that I shared with you last week but it has been hot and humid here so working upstairs hasn’t been fun. I only finished six more blocks made this week. I thought it would be fun to lay a few out so you could see what the quilt will look like.
I have been cutting the block pieces with my Accuquilt GO! cutter and the 8-inch Qube set and then storing them on the small table by my sewing machine so they are ready to go. I’ll share a tutorial soon.
An oldie but goodie, I first shared the Petunia Strings quilt in August of 2012! Gosh, where does the time go! I had someone ask about a tutorial for this quilt so I updated it a little and added a downloadable pdf for you.
Summer Table Topper
Are you looking for a fast and easy table topper for the summer that will match the placemats I showed last week? Take a look at my Summer table topper tutorial.
Quilt projects shared with me
Here are a few quilt projects that have been shared with me. If you would like to share a photo of something you have made with one of my tutorials or patterns, please attach the photo to an email and send it to me.
Be sure to also check out the other shared quilt project posts that I have shown before, you will find links to them at the end of this post.
Jeanne shared this beautiful basket that she made using my Fabric Basket tutorial.
Suzanne shared these precious pillows created using my Morning Glory Pillow tutorial. They look so neat on her couch!
Patricia shared this beautiful quilt that she made with my Scattered quilt pattern. She said she was making it for one of her beds and a friend came over and loved it so she gifted it to her friend. She removed two rows and placed them on the back of the quilt for a really unique design.
Juliana shared her Coastal Seahorses wall hanging with me some time ago right after she completed the applique. I bet it is now finished! You can read more about this wall hanging on my blog or get my Coastal Seahorses pattern!
Paula share her Desert Windmills quilt that she made using my Twirling Windmills tutorial. The fabrics are perfect for a desert quilt!
My dear friend Pat, first shared photos of her dog Jack a couple of years ago and when he passed away last year, she adopted Ziva. She is a poodle and Pat works tirelessly to keep her groomed the way a poodle should look. Pat even sent me a brush to use on Mr. Mickey but I’m not that good at keeping him brushed. He goes to the groomer every six weeks instead.
Miss Sadie got a haircut the other day, she squirms so bad that Bob has to hold on to her while the groomer clips her. She looks a little raggedy but at least her nails are shorter. One ear is trimmed a little longer than the other but that is okay.
Once again she is sitting almost on top of Mr. Mickey so he can let her “hear” what is going on or when dad will get home. Any other time she will keep her distance from him and growl if he gets too close to Bob.
Front porch work
We continue to work on the house a little bit at a time. There has been blue carpeting on our front porch and finally, it was time to get rid of it! Our floor guy had the carpet off in no time at all and then installed floating vinyl plank flooring that is a very close match to the tile in the rest of our house.
It is so nice to finally have that done! Yesterday Bob the Builder picked up our new front door which he isn’t looking forward to installing. The vintage wood door will be removed and the new door will go where the storm door is. I’ll be able to keep have the front porch open all the time.
