Here's a picture of the Christmas Stocking I made.  Sorry about the sideways post, not sure why QATW is doing this to my picture.  You'll need to click onto the picture to enlarge and then turn your head sideways to the left to view it!

Started working on Playing with 9 Patches this morning.  All the 9 patches were made and most of the white squares had been cut so started working on putting the rows together until I got to row 6 and realized that the quilt was not symmetrical.  This will drive me crazy.  I see a donation in my future.

I worked in my sewing room today.  Decided to take a little time to make a baby gift and enjoyed that time.  Then I pulled a LOT of fabrics out for the Floral Log Cabin quilt I want to make (UFO #5, October 2018).  Man, I think I need MORE florals..thought I had all I wanted but now my mind is going all over the place.  I would really love to do a Watercolor Floral Log Cabin, but I need lots more florals.  Anyone done one of these?

I love watercolor quilts Sharon. But I have never made one. Maybe one day. Not long ago I saw a floral colorwash Irish chain. Oh Man! I love this idea. It's basically a watercolor quilt in the Irish chain pattern.

I was hoping to have a swap next year for a floral log cabin, maybe the curved looking ones like I see on Pinterest. So pretty.

I've done a watercolor wall hanging but not a quilt.  You will definitely want lots and lots of florals but the nice thing is you can do use FQs rather than buying yardage.  And the wrong side gives you even more variation in shades

Working on more long forgotten projects from another lifetime...Should have one ready to sandwich and start quilting tomorrow.  Another top almost completed from a swap, Haunted Cabins.   

My heart is fed with needle and thread.

Thanks, Barb.  Maybe I can find some remnants or F/Qs to add to the yardage I already have.  That wrong side tip is a great one.

Hi Candis...sorry for the delayed reply to your question.  

The Christmas stocking was so easy to make!!  I basically followed a video tutorial from Missouri Star Quilt Co!!

I've now made two more stockings for all the new babies born in our extended family.  My beautiful Mother-In-Law had a family tradition where she hung a stocking for every member of our family at her home.  I am now carrying on the tradition as my DH and I have been taking care of the family home and will continue to host our extended family holidays there (Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas).

Here are pictures of the other Christmas stockings I made, you'll need to click onto the picture to enlarge the view and crank your head sideways to see them correctly (QATW turns all my posted pictures sideways and so it goes, lol!)

Sugar Skull Coasters

First I made a template out of the back of the Social Security Information Book (because it is heavy and kind of plastic and sturdy).

Coaster template

Then I cut out the front using patterened fabric or strip quilted panels.

Layered them on top of backing, then batting and stitched them up - THEN trimmed them out.

Leave a space under the "chin" to turn inside out and - Viola! No need for binding! Just stitch along the edge and finish the chin.  Made 10 in about 2 hours.

Today I FINALLY had time to quilt a little--DH had an orientation at his new part-time job and it gave me a few hours of peace and quiet.  He retired last year and is very high maintenance.  ;o) So now he'll have something to do a few days a week.

What adorable skull coasters. So imaginative!

I'm cutting out 88 wee little 1-7/8" squares and 176 squares (then halved diagonally) to make 88 2" square in a square blocks for the next border in a quilt I'm making. Tedius and I thought of doing plain strips but I like the look of the blocks so I'll suck it up and start chain stitching tomorrow.

This is the pattern I'm working from although as I work my way out from the center I keep making changes.
