December almost done.

 And I’ve been very busy finishing off a couple of things.  For the first time I only joined one BOM and it wasn’t really one.  I joined Annie’s Mystery Quilt Book where you get a chapter a month and at the end a quilting block clue as to who did it....  it was great fun, the blocks were cool, you learned how to do new stuff with the videos, but the best part, the quilt....l. It’s done, quilted and all.

The flowers are poisonous, the woman killed was poisoned when she drank her tea.  The woman was an author, who wrote books.  (Following so far).
There’s a camera in the corner, the girl who solves the mystery is from a newspaper.  She lived in that house that was broken in.  Thus the ladder on the side of the building.  I love the curtains of lace I put in the windows.  
The quilt is cat approved.  Yes he’s under the quilt.  It’s 65” square.  Quite large, and snuggly.  The woman who was killed was wrapped in a quilt.
Love the logo they give you to appliqué on.  
All together a great piece.  I had winter holidays to finish it before the new year.

I loved it so much I joined for a second time.  This one is a mystery by the sea.  Thus a request for blue fabric.  

Before I go want to wish everyone a merry Christmas 🎁 and happy new year .  Stay safe everyone.

ps. Did you fill out your sheet for the APQ challenge?  I have three.  The Facebook group is so supportive and fun to see everyone’s work.  It’s also a great way to finish some quilts on your UFO and to-do list.   It’s like a giant guild online.  Consider it.  There’s no pressure, just support and fun.

November is done and not done...

 Hi all.  It's in the middle of the week and I'm done a quilt but not  exactly done the one that I said I would complete.  And the one I completed was a complete start but with the material sitting around in a box for about a year.  The material is Robert Kauffman and it's called the Portrait.  It's his remake of art work to be quilted.  I fell in love with the colors, how about you?

I quilted it so much it's crazy

Love the overall look with the wood, makes the entire thing look like a work of art which it is.  Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I.  

What more could you ask for in a room.  On to the next project.

November's OMG for the Month.

 I've been overly tired from teaching in this time and age.  Although everyone thinks that teaching two courses is easy, it's not.  And truthfully, I teach two blocks per class, so it was four classes instead of the two everyone is talking about.  The school term switches over the 2nd week of November and goes until December, and with only one class (a double class again) this term with a 1/2 day spare, I think I can manage a big project this time.  The HST quilt by Lee A Heinrich at Freshly Piecing.  

I have all the material, and I have the paper work to make perfect HST squares.  I have not even started this quilt, but it's a new way of doing HSTs and it's suppose to be easy to do, so I'm trying it.

This is my first goal.  My 2nd goal is to complete another door for the Barn door set up that I have in the dining area.  I want to make something artistic.  It's something to start to make the house more welcoming.

Hooking up to Elm Street Quilts for November.  Wish me luck.
