Hands2Help 2018 Charity Quilts

Hello All!
It's that time of year again, that time when we link up our charity quilts for Hands2Help. I've again made two quilts for 
Emily of Em's Scrap Bag who is collecting quilts to be donated to people undergoing chemotherapy.  This has been a favorite charity for the Challenge participants since the second year, and a whole lot of love and comfort has gone to them in the form of quilts over the past six years.  Quilty Hugs gives quilts to cancer patients through the Rack Pack, Primary Children's Hospital, and various chemo labs.  They are given to the patient for their own personal use.

These are the two quilt I've made this year.

I've linked up at Hands2Help. Click here to see what others have made.

That is all.

Half Inch Hexie Quilt Progress

Hello All!
Today I've given up blogging from my iPad and am using my trusty old laptop (remember I told you that lightening took out my good laptop?)

I continue to hand-sew my little 1/2-inch hexies together into a quilt top.  I now have 330 hexie flowers sewn together, measuring about 51" x 54".


Also sewing with the "It's a Wild Life" block of the month.  Here are my blocks to date:

Needle and Thread Thursday and Hands2Help Linkups

Hi All!
Today I’m showing you the second finished charity quilt for the Hands2Help group which Sarah at “Confessions of a Fabric Addict” hosts each year.  There are several charities available on Hands2Help.  Below is the icon and clicking on it may or may not take you to the web page where it’s all explained.  I’m not sure if the link works so if not since I’m still trying to learn how to use this new blogging app. You may need to click on this as well.
Well, nevermind the icon. That just disappeared so click on the link above and maybe that will work.  
Anyway, here’s the little quilt I finished.

I’m also linking my project today with Kelly’s “Needle and Thread Thursday.”  I still haven’t figured out how to make the link work by clicking on the picture so please just click on the link I copied below to see what others are doing on Thursday.

I know - What a mess!  I could do this on my laptop BUT, while recently visiting our little ranch in the hill country of Texas, a thunderstorm occurred and lightening took out my laptop so...
That is all.

T-Shirt Quilt in the Making

Hi All!
I’ve been sewing a little - or rather, preparing to sew.  I’m linking my project today with Kelly’s “Needle and Thread Thursday.”  I still haven’t figured out how to make the link work by clicking on the picture so please just click on the link I copied below to see what others are doing on Thursday.

Here’s a photo of the t-shirts I’ve cut up.  I’ve made all 17 inch x 17 just to make sure I have enough. I’ll cut them down to the size needed after I iron them to the interfacing.  These are 20 cut-up t-shirts.

And, of course, I saved many scraps in case they’re needed and saved some for dusting and cleaning rags and still, I have this trash can full of scraps.

So, I’m ready to get started on that but I needed a break from t-shirts so made this pincushion for my swap partner in a pincushion swap.  My partner likes crazy quilting so...

That is all.

Monday Making

I hope everyone had a beautiful Easter.

It’s “Monday Making” day at Beth’s Love Laugh Quilt blog. 
Here’s the link because I’m still having trouble making the link an actual link.  I need another blog publisher. Well, no, actually I need to learn how to use this app because I paid for it :(

Today I’m showing my blocks for It’s a Wild Life Block of the Month.  

  For the month of February we had two leaves to make.

In March we made these cute little deer. I still need to do a revision on mine since it seems that I sewed the applique wrong on the deer that is lying down. Her back leg is all wrong :)

Now the April block is up and that’s a good project for Monday Making.  This block is actually 2 blocks and involves 2 pine trees, either applique or pieced.  I’m working on the pieced option and will show those when completed.

That is all.

Finished Or Not Friday

Today, in an effort to continue blogging, I’m linking up with “Finished or Not Friday
hosted by Myra of Busy Hands Quilts. Here’s the link.
My favorite blogging app for iPad no longer exists (another story) and I’m having to learn a new app.  For some reason, I can’t get the link attachment to work.

To continue my post:  I’ve joined up with Hands2Help 2018 Charity Quilts hosted by Sara from Confessions of a Fabric Addict (here’s that link:)

And am working on this quilt.

It’s the rail fence pattern. I still need to do the backing and quilting and binding but that should go pretty quickly since it’s a lap size (famous last words).  I love the name of this linky - Finished or Not Friday- since I have a lot of “not finished” projects that would qualify.  Click on the link above to see what others are doing.

That is all.

Needle and Thread Thursday

I want to blog more often. I don’t know why lately it gets away from me so I thought that if I joined a linky group from time to time, it might get me blogging again.  Today I’m linking up with Kelly’s “Needle and Thread Thursday.”    at “My Quilt Infatuation.”   The object is to show a finished work or a WIP. Well, I’ve certainly got lots of WIPs and this long-going project of tiny flowers made by English Paper-Piecing 1/2 inch hexies qualifies as a WIP.

Right now I have 295 flowers sewn together. The project measures  about 45 x 45 inches and I’ve been working on it so long that I can’t even remember when I started.  I blog about it occasionally so I’ll check my old blog posts later and see if I can find when I started this project.  Please click on this link to see what others are posting on Kelly’s blog.

That is all.
