Sweet Land of Liberty month 7



Making progress with my Sweet Land of Liberty blocks, but I scorched my fish :0(  I tried to cover it with the addition of thread and another bit over the top of the fish but maybe when the quilting is done it won't be noticeable.....I'll have to be more careful!

Come see all the month seven blocks over at Humble Quilts :0)  Happy Sewing!

Splendid Sampler ll block 2

Block number two.  I really like this block but when I finished with the applique the block was 1/4 inch too small in both directions.....well that won't work :0(

So I tried again and used a solid piece of fabric for the background, cut it larger than needed then cut it down to 6.5 inches after the applique.

Come see all the blocks at Pat's blog
First block and second block...okay I'm happy with these two...now onto block three.  Happy Sewing, Kim

Retirement gift


 Bonnie Hunter's "On Ringo Lake" mystery was gifted to my nursing school friend who just retired.  I couldn't think of a nicer person to receive this quilt  than my good friend Pat.  You can't easily make old friends that have known you half your life :0).  Congratulations Pat for you nearly 40 years of service!

Sweet Land of Liberty


A new sew along on "Humble Quilts" no pattern just winging it...made my USA blocks too small so just added a strip of fabric to the top and bottom.  My challenge with this quilt will be to do most of it by machine.....even the lettering.   Happy Sewing, Kim

Beach Time






Nice quiet day today at the beach, the clouds rolled in while the birds were huddled down against the brisk breeze.  I did see this dead octopus floating along with his eyes open.

I got in a nice walk in found a few special shells and called it a day.

Happy Sewing, Kim
