Pat Sloan Charm-A-Long

This is the layout options for her workbook.


I finished my Row-A-Long quilt top today but I do still have to make the binding strips.   I made substitutions for some of the rows.  I made one row smaller than the original size and then realized that the pieced borders would not fit so I had to make another "filler" row to make everything come out even.  I like the bright colors and think the kitties look like they are sitting on a patchwork quilt.  The kitty row is the one that I had to make to take care of my mistake.  Now I think it may be my favorite row.  All's well that ends well.   I wouldn't mind making another row quilt using colors I more often work with.

Now I want to make a small wallhanging for my kitchen.  Thinking of using a cute appliqued coffee cup and saucer block alternating with a pieced block - maybe a 9-patch or churn dash.   Time will tell.

Happy 46th Anniversary to me and my sweetheart today!


New project

This is what I am working on now.  I am using the Soaked fabric from Connecting Threads.  I have my color fabric cut into strips, just doing some math to see if I have enough white or if a purchase is in my future.  This pattern is from Pat Sloan Charm-A-Long Workbook.

Tuesday Quilting

I will not be at quilting Tuesday night.  I have a doctors appointment in Little Rock.

This might be TMI....But, It's time for the big squeeze.  Ladies do not put it off... I am a 14 year survivor of breast cancer.


Prayers for a friend and community

Please say a prayer and hold up a friend and fellow church family who lost their son yesterday.

Also in the terrible storms we had, many were lost including the neighboring county's sheriff and a game and fish officer, they both were trying to rescue a family from the rising waters.
