Learning something new!

I'm still working on basket blocks. I cut and organize some pieces.

Then start sewing them together. This is where I have learned something new.

Did you know this is called a Toads Toe? Yep, a Toads Toe. I see it. Funny name.
Well, any way, I now have 50 blocks made.

I am shooting for 120. Then to place them on my design wall. I am wanting a full or queen size quilt.

I'm also working on my hand quilting.

Half way there. I am falling in love with this quilt. I can see my grandma wasn't a perfect quilter. And, it is reminding me to not be so hard on myself. It's not about the Perfection. It's the journey!

I Have been Sewing.

I have been working on this

It's slow going. But, there is progress.

My fingers started hurting. So, I dug through some scraps and came up with these.

They are little cuties! 4" blocks. Some day they will be a quilt. I HOPE!!!

I'm Slacking again.

I'm slacking again. But, for good reason.

I had an Uncle Pass last week. So, getting my sisters called and going to the funeral took some time.

I did however find this cute little block that I thought I'd try to make

Yep, It will be 1  1/2 inches when finished. WOW! tiny.

I made 9 of them and come up with this.

can you see my mistakes. Well, there's several. But one really stands out.

Yep, Bottom Left corner. And, I didn't even see it until I had it quilted. I guess this is my Humble Blocks.

I also put a quilt in my quilting frames.

This quilt top was made by my grandmother and now belongs to my Aunt. She has asked me to hand quilt it for her.
I haven't hand quilted in years. So, bare with me. It might take awhile.

Life at the Inn is good!!!!

Country Charmer Quiltalong

Country Charmer Quiltalong :

I'm late getting this posted today. The day has gotten away from me.

Today over at http://lesleythecuddlequilter.blogspot.com/  she was going to have a schedule. Today we were suppose to have our fabric and have the pieces cut.

I did manage to get my background fabric cut.

I knew this was what I was going to go with. So, far so good.

How ever, I am still auditioning reds, and blues.

This is what I have so far.

I'm loving making these blocks. The more I make the more addicting they are. And, I have made others. But, not liking them so much.

Don't forget that http://sewnwildoaks.blogspot.com/ made the pattern and is posting VERY helpful hints on the construction of the quilt.

If your fretting over color matches, read her post on Thursday Jan 31st. Very helpful!

There are several people in blogland that are making this quilt. You can find some of us on the flicker page that has been set up. LOVING this too.


I'm off to audition more fabric.
