July went by too fast!!!!

I can't believe that June and July is already gone, where did the time go.... oh I know in June I became a grandma, yes my granddaughter was born on June 26th in South Korea...

Riley Brooke Hinton Born: 6/26/14, 6 lbs 13 oz @ 12:34 pm in Yongsan, South Korea!



Speak no Evil
See no Evil
Hear no Evil

 OK, enough bragging about my granddaughter... on to quilting..
I didn't make very many block in the month of June. It was only 16 blocks but I did make some items for my granddaughter, a bib, burp rags and a little quilt out of a panel.











In July I did more than June...
I actually traveled to a couple of quilt shops and started the Row by Row Experience.
 If you have seen this you should check out the website. There are 1250 stores across the county in this shop hop. I have only been to 7 shops so far, will hit my 8th one this weekend.  


Here are 4 of the rows - Top to Bottom:
 
Quilts & Quilts The Fabric Shoppe in Branson, MO

Country Corner Quilt Shop in Harrison, AR

Merrily We Quilt Along in Springfield, MO - this one had 4 blocks

The Quilted Cow in Cape Fair, MO

Sew-N-Sew Quilt Shop  in Pea Ridge, AR

 
Sager Creek Quilts in Silaom Springs, AR 
This one isn't complete yet, but I did 12 blocks which 2 haven't been added yet.


Quilt Sampler in Springfield, MO
I haven't done this one yet.  Will show a picture when it's done.

Don't forget to get your license plate at your quilt shop.  They are really cool. 




 So my total for July is 32 Blocks.

Keep Quilting!!!

Last two block for the BOM block 11 and block 12

Today I am sharing with you the last two blocks for the BOM- Modern Stain Glass Paper Piecing.
I hope you that you have enjoyed this BOM. This was my first BOM hosting, I do apologize for not being timely on my post and not doing as many videos as I wanted. My next BOM will be more organized. I have actually learned a lot on doing this series.  
So on with the last two blocks.

May, May where have you gone!!!

I can not believe that May is almost over, this month went by so fast.  I said that I would let you all know what I have been up too this month, since I didn't post anything (I can't believe that).

First off, at the end of April, my husband and I went to Paducah KY for the Quilt Show.  While we where there he bought me a new machine...

Isn't she lovely, I haven't given her a name yet.

Of course I had to get a table for her to sit on.
 


 Here is some of the goodies that I got with the machine also




So I really haven't been quilting to much this month, mostly playing with my new machine.  On my next post I will show all the blocks that I did do with my machine.  Right now here is Ellie the Elephant that I made for my granddaughter, she is due around June 28th, can't wait for her arrival.  They are stationed in South Korea. So I actually wont get to see her in person until November. I can't wait.  




I also took a knitting class this month learned how to make a washcloth.. It was a fun class at
The Lady In Thread she offers a variety of handmade items, with a modern twist. You should check out her Etsy shop she has some really cool fabric and some modern books.



May, was also my husbands birthday, which happened to fall on Mothers Day, so his mother come and spent the weekend with us.  I don't think that we have been home one weekend in the month of May except for when his mother come down.  I am hoping that the month of June will be the month that I can just hide away in my sewing room on the weekends and sew my little heart out.  We will see if that happens.  This weekend we are going to visit my parents which is about an hour and half away. So I don't think that I will get to sew until Sunday afternoon... :)


Come back June 1st and I will be posting my last two BOM Blocks and will be showing some pictures of the blocks that I completed in the month of May.
Until then,

Paper Piecing Block 7

Block 8
 
Paper Piecing Block 8


I have missed posting video's this last month. If I have time this month I think that I will do a couple video's on Paper Piecing with freezer paper.  It is so easy to do and you don't have all those small pieces to tear off.

Keep Quilting!

Skill Builder BOM 2014 - Quilting

  Skill Builder BOM 2014 – Pile O' Fabric


The first of February I showed piecing the ruler and the threads. Here is the quilting that I did for the ruler and threads.
 





 I have also done the stitches I really like doing these.



The cross stitch was really easy to size with the HST Ruler.



Now here is the quilting of the stitches.


 I am now going to start working on the Chevron Star and Churn Dash Block .   If you haven't been doing this BOM, you should give it a try. You will learn some new skills and have fun doing them.  I just want to thank Pile O' Fabric  for putting this all together.

Keep Quilting!
