I've been quiet this week because I've been kitting a BOM for the shop and writing patterns.  This picture is not me...I think I would look a little more "mental" if someone had sewn a zipper to my face...

I've been working on the kitting/writing at home in the quilt cave, which is good, but I have not had time to do any sewing for myself this week, and that is BAD.  All work and no play makes Teresa a cranky quilter!  I've been cutting, folding and counting what seems like thousands of little rectangles, and them counting and recounting again to get the kits absolutely right.  I sure love the look of a scrappy quilt, but it makes kitting a small nightmare.

This is the quilt, called "Most Wonderful," that the fearless threesome (Mary J, Ola and I) came up with using the calendar blocks and letters featured in Nancy Halvorsen's book, "Count On It."  We launch it in the morning!



Since I have not decided on what to work on next, I'm going to share a couple of things that my friend Kathy F (no blog) has been working on.  Pictures were taken at our Friday morning Sit & Stitch group by Judy T and MaryLiz...thanks girls!  First, Kathy got her "Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll" quilt back from the quilter (our buddy, Marilyn Lange).  Marilyn does FABULOUS feathers!

Kathy is also making these fabulous hexagons...


And then one Friday when I wasn't there, she wowed everyone with THIS...


Good thing I wasn't there...I would have grabbed it and RUN!  Blue is my favorite color.

What's up with Blogger today?!?  Is it a "Friday the 13th" thing?  It seems to be back and working for me...I hope everyone else's issues are better as well.

Next week I look forward to catching up on Bee blocks and a few other projects.  Then I hope to stop spinning and decide what to start next.  That won't be easy as there are so many things on my bucket list!

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

  1. Thanks for posting those pictures of my quilts. the hexagon quilt was inspired by Victoria of Bumblebeans. I have to give her a lot of credit for all the things she shares with us. Thanks, V.

  2. Those are all really beautiful quilts....love 'em!

    That first pic of the zipper mouth is quite disturbing! Kindof freaks me out to look at it....it reminds me of that Twilight Zone movie, where the evil kid wished away his sister's mouth....totally creepy! Ewwwww!

    But the quilts are great! lol

  6. You must feel as if someone has bagged up your creativity and put a zip on it..... Hopefully it won't have fled out of the door after this week! I look forward to your next project.
    The quilts you showed are nice too, as well as the 'kitted' quilt.

  8. This is such a great quilt kit! You gals make a GREAT creative team!!
    Of course I am partial to the RRCB quilt. It's nice to see the quilting on one, maybe that will give me some 'i-dees' on how to quilt mine AND of course I would run away that blue quilt too!!!!!

  9. That girl in the photo may have her lips zipped, but her eyes are screaming! Great quilts. I love that hexagon. The feather quilting on the RRCB is beautiful.
