Day 21

A very small neck pillow.

Day 16, 17, 18, 19, and 20

Day 16
I had a little glitch with my camera; or actually my brain.  I apparently got a little overzealous about getting rid of some old techy stuff, including cords, to Tech Dump; and donated my camera cord by mistake.  So I could take pictures, but not get them on my computer.  So here's 5 days of sewing. 


 Day 17, part of the handstitching the facing down.

Day 18, the remainder of the facing stitched down.

 Day 19, the pillowcase interior seams.

Day 20, sorting through more magazines to recycle.

Day 6 and 7

Yesterday and today I've been working on the MQ 2017 Mystery Quilt.
Due to the secrecy, this is all I can show you...

Day 5

Today I started with darker yellows. 

Day 2, 3, and 4


I cut out the strips for the first block in the MQ 2017 mystery quilt, but dissatisfied with the lack of contrast in the picture, I stopped that and the next few days I went through magazines to get rid of them.

It would make me feel so good to fill this blog with quilting tasks, events, accomplishments in 2017 so today is Day 1.
MQ is having it's 2nd Mystery Quilt and I've just picked out my light fabrics for it.

Sewing every day

I really am sewing every day.  Could be inspirational or creative but it's really because of deadlines!  But this has been my daily mess for a while as I use many different threads or combinations thereof.  
I want to post a picture of my progress everyday but I had a problem with my phone camera and taking a picture with an actual digital camera seems like so much work!

Made some simple fabric postcards out of the Cindy Lindgren Minneapolis fabric I bought at The Linden Tree Quilt Shop in S. Mpls.

Changing Times, MCQ Challenge

I completed my Changing Winds: El Nino piece for the MCQ Challenge.
With my own challenge to use up all my scraps this is a scrap piece and when I brought it to Cavers I told them I have no idea what to use for the border.  I'm tired of using black every time I can't figure it out.  They suggested charcoal.  Someone said light charcoal and another said dark charcoal.  I had a piece that had both. It's only quilted in the lines of rows.
One down, several more other challenges to go.

Quilting every day

I really want to post a picture everyday because it's encouraging to keep going, but the end of the day comes and "Tomorrow." is the word in my mind.
So a couple weeks ago I was working on these Heart Strings Blocks.  There's over 100 there, and most of them have a muslin stripe down the center.  At one point I was pretty excited to see my organized strips of fabric reduced and then I saw I had another box.  There'll be way more than 100 more coming out of that scrap box.
