Quilting

 

Not Quilting Enough, Drama

Need a little motivation? The Flying Geese quilt block behind these words was much easier than I thought. They ended up in a couple of large blocks for a sampler lap quilt. When life seem to get a little intense, as sometimes it will, the sewing room I have found is a good place to escape… at least for a while. Happy Quilting.

Poetry

Mesa, Poetry,

 ~ Mesa ~

From the valley floor,

they entered the virgin motherland.

Climbing steadily up the sides of red rock

till they reached the narrow mesa

closest to the bright lights of night,

the land closest to the Sun.

With knowing they came to be

 in their own Sacred Place.

Quilting – My First T-Shirt Quilt

T-Shirt Quilt Back.

Yea… it is done! Here is my first T-shirt quilt. I started this while in our Covid-19 lockdown after I got tired of doing a puzzle. I like puzzles. But quilts are puzzles… just with fabric, right? Also, hopefully you won’t be taking them apart. I am not going to call this my Covid quilt, though. But quilting has helped so much to calm and soothe me during these times of uncertainty, especially when the bad news kept droning on. It has given me a certain peace and something to plan when not being able to go as much as I want. Not to mention, I have good music in my sewing room.

I have been on a mission over the years to make each of my closest family members a quilt. It has taken me much longer than originally planned as I am a slow quilter. But it is always fun when another one is completed. Because each project takes me so long, I call this my ‘Cheap’ hobby. (Buying fabric for the stash is a separate hobby, of course.)

Tips for making a t-shirt quilt. Don’t forget to use at least a mid-weight stabilizer. Some people like to put their shirts together in strips. I can now see where this can be helpful as I had to keep ‘growing’ the sashes to get it to fit together right. I decided to put it together in sections … like a puzzle. Not everyone pre-washes fabric, but I did. I don’t trust red not to do its own thing, sometimes ugly. I had to be patient in receiving the Grand Canyon fabric panel, but it was worth the wait. The only thing is the panel is so beautiful, the quilt is now reversible. An unexpected surprise for me. So when it is reversible, where do you put the label? Another quilting friend suggested to just leave it off. What!!! But I decided to just do a very small one that does not stand out too much. Overall, I am happy with how it turned out. More important and the best of all, the person it was made for loved it. So, Happy Quilting. ~

Frozen fog on trees,

crept softly into the night.

Caught in morning light. ~

Poetry ~ First Snow

Snow Today

First Snow

Gentle rain turning

to soft downy flakes,

each intricate and unique.

 

Sounds of the world

muted in the deep.

Solitude calling us

to slow down,

memories we keep.

 

Soft downy flakes

turning all to white,

except the dark bark of the trees,

standing sentries

along the steep banks

of the creek. ~
