wrong way....right way

this is why I consider myself a primitive quilter.....sewing lots of pieces for Dresden Plates, all the wrong way, of course!



if at first you don't succeed try, try again and I got it right, still wonky and prim.....just the way I like it!




hope you enjoyed your National Quilting Day the "right" way......

a big task......

I am back home from a stay with my sister.....she is doing as well as one could expect.....
theses piles I had left greeted me as I walked in the door.....





we were having some insulation put in exterior walls in front three rooms of our house, dry wall had to come off and new walls put in, old carpet was taken out of bedrooms so new flooring could go down......so I had to move everything from those rooms, hence the now very dusty piles.....



so painting has begun......luckily before new floors weren't in yet! kinda had an oooppps!



painting done in one room and new wood floor in.....



will continue working on this project till done, so no sewing for at least this week.....hope to be back at my sewing machine soon.....
enjoy.....

just a few kisses.......

just a few or maybe a lot of kisses for you and those you hold dear......
sharing this sweet prim quilt with you as a token of my love......



I simply made x blocks by sewing 2" strips of muslin and red together as shown, then I cut those into 2" sections......sewing one on each side of a 2" x 5" piece of red......
blocks will finish at 4&1/2"

solid squares were cut 5"
setting side triangles......cut square 7&5/8", cut twice diagonally.....
corners......cut 4&1/8" square, cut once diagonally......






enjoy.....

my sister has gone back home, her son and our mom are with her and I will be driving up to June Lake next week for a week or so......take care
