Grandma’s Kitchen–Block 20 - 25

This week’s block is called Lovely Dishes.

This block completes the 5th row.  We have 5 blocks to go that will be added to the bottom and become the 6th row.

I’m still loving the process as well as the quilt.  Can’t wait to see what comes next. 

Enjoy,

Design Wall Monday–November 13, 2017

I’ve made progress on my “Five of a Kind” that I’m making for a holiday gift exchange.  As a reminder, there are twelve of us and each make “Five of a Kind” gifts.  When you arrive you are assigned a code name and the names go in a hat.  When it’s your turn you draw out five names (not your own) and those are the five gifts you receive to take home.  It’s a lot of fun and although there are many table runners there are also a variety of other things people make. This is the first time I’ve made a small quilt for the exchange.

The top one is completed but still needs it’s buttons sewn on.  The next three are completely appliqued to the background but still need to be trimmed, a little additional quilting, binding added and buttons sewn on.  The bottom one still needs to be appliqued down and then completed like the others.  It’s a slow process but I soooooooooo love these little guys.  They seem to take on a personality of their own.  I hope the five friends that receive one, likes it.

Enjoy,

Grandma’s Kitchen–Block 19/25

Some blocks I just like better than others and this week I love the block.  It is called Mending Basket.  I really wanted to use a stripe for the spool of thread but I didn’t seem to have one that worked so instead I ended up with this.

This is the block with the filler strips and checker board already added.  And here it is sewn into its row.

Can’t wait to see what’s next.  Thank you Pat Sloan for the great quilt.

Design Wall Monday–November 6, 2017

I am part of a group that does a Christmas gift exchange.  There are 12 participants and each individual makes 5 gifts.  There is a random pick of which 5 gifts you will get in exchange for the ones you made.  It’s a lot of fun with a great group of women. 

I have made various things for the exchange in the past but this year I settled on a table topper (could be a wall hanging).  Before making all 5, I made one from start to finish to make sure I like it.  I’ve done that (and I do like it) now it’s time to complete the remaining 4.

I still need to added buttons but that will come later.

Hope you have a great week.

Enjoy,

Grandma’s Kitchen–Block 18 of 25

“The Fridge” is this week’s block from Pat Sloan’s Grandma’s Kitchen block of the week.  Here’s mine.

I used kind of funky fabrics this week but I think it’s fun and I like it.  I’m pretty much caught up so I decided to go ahead and add it to its place in row 5.

Check back next week as we get closer to completing this really fun quilt. 

Enjoy,
