My Life

Are You Quilting During This Time Of Quarantine?

It’s a very crazy time these days for sure.

I’ve been self quarantining myself this past week.

With Spring Quilt Market being cancelled &

my teaching scheduled been put on hold,

I decided I would work on a couple of UFO’s,

something I NEVER do!

The first UFO on my list was Diane Knott

of Butterfly Threads Quilting‘s,

Under The Mistletoe.

This is a pickle dish block made with foundation paper piecing

that Diane taught at our guild’s Quilt Away 2019.

I had just 1 block & 1 more “football” made.

So, my favorite part, I set to choose football fabrics!

I love FPP accuracy!

I trimmed the excess with my rotary cutter.

It’s quicker than scissors.

I just hold the ruler right where I want to trim, sliding it along the cutting line.

Inner curves are easy.

Outer curves, even easier!

It was fun watching this piece grow!

I love using my stash,

not worrying about how old a fabric is

or how it my appear photographed.

Soon I was sewing in the corners & side pieces.

A fellow guild member, Loraine, who had finished hers,

recommended how to quilt it.

Something else I don’t do a lot of is my own quilting.

I love the way my table runner turned out!

If you don’t have any UFO’s (lolololololol)

& you’d like a project to work on today,

my quilting friend,

Gudrun of GE Designs

is having a quilt along with a free download pattern today.

What are you doing during this time?

Please share your projects & progress on my Sewing With Susan FB group:

Please stay home & stay safe!

Just Keep Sewing…

  1. What a beautiful project you are working on;))) I have that pattern and have been afraid to begin it..looks quite challenging…lovely colors you’ve chosen.
    We are sheltering in place here in SE CT hugs from afar Julierose

  2. I love your table runner too! I wish I’d been on the blogs lately because I would have loved to do the SAL with Gundrun but I missed it (I discovered last night). Hubby had surgery on Friday and that has been my focus since then. Like I really needed another UFO! I have been squeezing in work on a UFO though. It’s a 2018 SAL with Barbara Brackmann called Hospital Sketches. Have a great week!

    1. Read your reply quickly on my phone, then forgot to reply. I hope your husband’s surgery went well & that his recovery is quick & successful! Not familiar with Barbara’s Hospital Sketches. I’ll have to look that up.
