A girls just gotta have fun

   
Jacky had some HST she showed
Me that she was playing with. 
Loved them.
And when cleaning out the one
Project bin I came across
Mine and some pieces to sew
From the quilt show dollar bags
What? I dont have any UFO s to work on.
What are you talking about

Anywho..........
This morning I sewed them into
An adorable little quilt
Just because

It measures less than 12 inches
I put a brown backing and used the rest
Of that fabric in the binding

More fabric outta the stash 
Another cute litttle project

Just have to hand sew the  binding
And it will be done........
Not sure if I will part with it or keep it.

Thanks for the prayers for Dad
He has congestive heart failure
And at 86 that is not good
He is also a stubborn man 
And is having a hard time doing 
What they are telling him.
Take coumadin. No sodium.
Walk. Take fluid pill
So we will take each day that we
Have with him

Moving another ufo along


This was a Christmas ufo
That I had been
Working on

Called Scots plaid
And is an easy block
Its in my old block
Calendar
I want to use it as a border
That is why the block
Is reversed
One way for left 
Side and one for
Right

If you want to make
One it is easy
Uses up2 inch
Strips and 3.5 
Inch squares
I sewed a few
Then cut more pieces
Out
What are you working on?

Tutorial

Using 2.5 inch charms
Sew a piece 2x9 blocks

This will be the pocket section
Of a sewing machine pad
Then sew a piece 6x9 squares
This will be the body
Of the sewing machine pad 

I used scrap batting too
3 pieces butted against each other
They will be quilted in place


I chose a blue backing
Then layered like you would
A quilt
I lightly pressed helping the batting to
Stick in place
Quilt as desired.because my batt
Strips went left to right i quilted up and down


Quilted top to bottom
To hold in place


Now I will trim this piece
And on the pocket section I
Sewed the top edge to the back small lining
And flipped it to finish the top edge
Then quilted with Batting inside

The pocket section is lined with bottom edge of the mat piece and the size of pockets sewn
I will do a small one for seam 
Ripper
And med one for pincushion
And large one for scissors
Then will bind all the way around

Set my machine on it leaving the pocket section
Hanging in front

Voila
A nice little gift for yourself
Or make one for a friend
I made one in pink for Jacky
And am just getting around to making
Mine
REMEMBER.........USE UP THOSE SCRAPS!


More fun


Jackys little pouches
For equal packets or
Whatever you need to carry


Thought you would
Like to see this quilt
You think a quilter lives Here?


She sure does

A little playtime


I played in the scraps            


And made two mugrugs 
Just mindless sewing
I even used up scrap binding 


This is the back

   
And the other one

Dad is still in the hospital
They found an organism
And are growing it to
See what it is.
Just like a farmer
Always growing something.
We are hoping he goes home soon 
He is getting antsy 
So is feeling better
