February 350 Blocks Report

This month had a lot of ups and downs. To start the month out we had 3 deaths in one week.
My husbands uncle passed away on a Saturday morning. 
 My loving grandmother passed Saturday afternoon, then her brother passed on Monday. 
Here is a great picture of my grandmother when she graduated from high school..
 

 On the up side, I am going to a grandma again in July..  Yes my daughter is going to have another girl. I am so excited for them, they are still in South Korea, but hope to be back in the states by then.
 



So with everything going on this month, I only did one block, which was actually a big block for the  Skill Builder BOM 2015 Technicolor Galaxy quilt.



My plan for March is to do some catch up. Which I really need too, I only have 17 blocks for the year.

With all the snow today I'm going to lock my self in my sewing room and start on my March goal.

 
Stay safe with all the weather out there!
 
Happy Sewing!!!

Good Bye 2014 --- Hello 2015

2014 was a great year! 

 I got a new car.
 In April, my husband and I went to Paducah to the Quilt Show and I finally got my dream machine, the Baby Lock Elisimo II with a Kola Cabinet.

I became a grandma. (Nana) They live in South Korea, they came to the states to visit.

We also had a five generation picture taken when Auttumn and Riley was here.
 
 I got a big promotion at work!!

I also did a lot of quilting which I have posted on 350-blocks-project-2014 page of my my blog.

I have promise to show the two quilts that I completed for Christmas presents.  Here they are, the OU one is a log cabin pattern that I designed in EQ7.  Both quilts was designed in EQ7.



There was so much that happened in 2014 that I can't put into one post.  Like I said before 2014 was a great year.  Hoping 2015 will even be better.  I have a lot of plans that I am working on for my quilting too, so stay turn for more details regarding those plans.

For now I am going to get my sewing room organized today so I can start on those plans.


Happy Quilting!!!

350 Block Report - October and November

This is going to be a short post tonight..  October and November I didn't do any blocks. Not saying I didn't quilt,  cause I did.
October my daughter and granddaughter came and visited.



They are back in South Korea now.  I miss them so much.  But it was great to see them.

I'll show some of my quilting that I have done, I put it in black in white cause I can't show it until after Christmas. 




Here is a picture of the back of the other quilt that I completed in November.




Didn't realize how many white strings that I still had on the back of the quilt.  It went into the wash and the strings are all gone now.

After Christmas I will show the front of all the quilts that I completed.

Happy Quilting!!!

Can't believe that it's October already..

Can't believe that it's October already.. and it's only 85 days till Christmas.  I made a lot of progress this month for our home made Christmas.

I finished the 49 log cabin blocks 20 last month and 29 this month... Now I need to put it all together.
I also did 90 Half-Square Triangle blocks for two other quilts that I am working on for Christmas.  I had to mix them all up so that if anyone in the family sees this blog post they wont have any idea of what I am doing... lol


So for the month of September I did 119 blocks. 
I bet you all can't wait till December so see my quilts that I am making.  


Next week I get to see my granddaughter for the first time.  She is here in the States..  She is getting so big.

This is a short post tonight.

Keep Quilting!!!!

August Update

Happy Labor Day!!!!

August went by way to fast, I think this entire year has gone by way to fast.
My mom and I went on a weekend trip to "Missouri Star Quilt Company".  We had a great time.


Of course I spent way to much money, but we had fun.  The month of August is my birthday and my mom's.  Her's is on the 19th and mine on the 5th.  So we try to do something together in August every year.  She has never been to Hamilton before or have I so we thought this would be a great weekend trip.

One thing that I got was the "Mini Wonky Web Template" and triangle paper. Always wanted to try this block.  Watched Jenny's YouTube video on this. I just love how she teaches.

 Here is the first block from the "Mini Wonky Web"  There are 4 blocks for 1 block.  I did 2 completed blocks which are 12 mini blocks put together.


 I missed up on this one. So I have to make another one.  lol


While we was in Hamilton, we drove over to Cameron to pick up my "Row by Row Experience".  For this row there was 16 half square triangles.

 
 Working on quilting this now. So I can take it to the quilt shop before the end of September.


I also have been working on Skill Builder BOM 2014 with Pile O Fabic.






 

I am working on Christmas quilts now also, I can't really show to many pictures of them right now, but trust me they are going to be really cool when they are done.
One is a log cabin design that I did in EQ7.  There are 49 12" blocks in this quilt and with the boarders the quilt will be 102x102.  So far I have only done 20 blocks for this quilt.  So I need to get a moving so I can get it done before Christmas, cause I have 3 other quilts that I am also working on and a weekender tote.  This year is a old fashion Christmas for use, everyone is making items.

I have also been knitting some fingerless gloves.  I have one done working on the second one.

 
 So for the month of August I actually did 55 blocks. I couldn't believe it until I counted them all. So I bet my goal for this month.  The goal was 30.  whoo I am still on track.  I have completed 303 blocks for the year...

Keep Quilting!!!!
