Thursday Tidbits

Today’s post will be a hodge podge of things I’ve been meaning to get around to posting, but haven’t found the time to sit down and do it.

Remember that pile of fabric, for the fall wallhanging, I had pulled out in the middle of my quilt room floor not so long ago? Well, since then, I did actually get started on it.  I am not so good at applique, but hope my skills will improve some by the time I finish this little project. These are the first two blocks I have worked on.  I still need to add the flower stem and crow’s feet.  This will also qualify as a stash buster project, as I am using only fabrics that were already in my stash.


And the start of another fabric basket, which is also using fabric from my stash.



And, from my stash of scraps, I made my first attempt at a coffee cuff, and gave it to one of my friends at work. It’s not so wonderful, but she loved it.


This is the beautiful sunrise I saw out my back door yesterday morning, and I wanted to share it with you.



The clouds, especially in the first pic, looked like snow to me, like the world was upside down.

I have been making some project progress this week, in the evenings, after work.  I am working on my starry log cabin center.  I have seven of the 10 rows sewn to each other. I am almost finished stitching the binding on my cousin’s quilt.  I have a little over one side and one corner to go.  Then a label, a wash & dry, and I will be done! Woohoo!

  1. The applique is machine. My first attempt at that with the mono thread. I had a little tension trouble, but I ordered a an applique book from Sharon Schamber, and maybe I will learn something that will help 🙂


  2. Love the applique Randi, that bird is so cute. The fabric bowl looks great and wouldn’t you know it’s my colors. Makes me want to make me one. The sunset is beautiful. Have a great day.


  3. Whatever is in the making with those applique blocks is sure to be something that I would love. One of these days I’ll have to give in and try those bowls. They are popping up everywhere! 😀 What a gorgeous sunsrise!!


  4. Good heavens girl! You are a dynamo! I’m always amazed at how much you fit into your days around that full time job.

    The sunrise is lovely!
