Sewing Saturday

Welcome to this week's sewing round up. I finished the blue scrappy log cabin blocks, as close to a similar size as improv blocks get!!  We didn't know August's color so I couldn't do blocks for RSC.

I did work hard on quilting and trimming two challenge quilts in the pink rose series... I plan to do a whole post on them this week as they came out so well! I quite enjoy working in a series... changing one thing each time, or trying a different technique with each one.
The back of the one above shows the quilting
this shows a binding technique that is fussy but what I wanted
The binding on my long green piece, (now ready to do the poppy, lupine, and white flower applique) got finished too!
It makes me so happy, seeing the long lines, the soothing colors of green, and that tiny 1/4" binding in black frames it.
I opened a solid fabric to back the quilt I showed above and found this folded inside!
that's fun, and follows the pink flower series, right?

I made another mask...
America has an enormous infection rate, about 1/4th of the WORLD'S infection number. Just in our country.This is a virus, the illness is not caused by cell towers or masks. It cannot be controlled with one heart medication as our leadership said it could, or we wouldn't have 1,200 American lives lost a day to it.
If some other country killed 1200 people a day here, we'd be taking action, but for some reason many American's are living in denial.
Snap out of it!

now for more humor...

  1. Your series with the pink flowers has been fascinating to watch! And that binding - wow! Loved your funnies at the end. Laughter is the best medicine!

  2. Hi,
    Awesome quilts...can't wait to see the flower one's going to be beautiful. Have a great day!

  3. Ok, I might have to steal that stab something 1000 times! Your greens are very soothing but I just love your log cabins. That quilting is amazing on your quilt.... so fun to visit you as there is always something inspiring going on. Quilty hugs.

  4. Thank you! I'm still laughing about stabbing something 1000 times! Your work is beautiful and inspiring, and I appreciate that you share it with us.

  5. I love your reminding me how much I loved watching "Moonlighting". My pre-teen son loved watching it too, and it was something we enjoyed doing together. It started our both being life long Bruce Willis fans. The questions your posed will be fun to answer with him, as I will forward this post to him. I love all your quilts, especially the green one!

  6. The fussy binding turned out great, LeeAnna, and I can't WAIT to see what you do with that scrap of stamped butterflies and flowers!!!

  7. You have been very busy on all these project. Your quilting on the pink flower is so nice. I can’t wait to see your flowers on the long green quilt. How fun to find your imagine piece .

  8. Your log cabins are looking so pretty! Love the quilting & the fussy binding on your rose quilt, very effective, and I'm looking forward to your post on these pink rose miniquilts.

  9. I love the green piece too. I am looking forward to seeing what you do next. Thanks for linking up with Oh Scrap!

  10. Beautiful play with fabric and thread. Green is always soothing, I agree. Your sentiments on COVID-19 deniers I agree with as well--it's a NEW virus, which is why we are having so much trouble with infection, still learning about its transmission and effects and hoping a vaccine will be effective. We will see much more suffering before then...

  11. Your roses are fabulous! The color choices and stitching. Wow. Love the back view. Several log cabins lately but yours in blue is especially attractive. I'm glad you're having fun at home.

  12. Ooh, your roses are amazing and I'm looking forward to your post about the whole series! Did you really manage to match whatever fabric was at the edge of that one, all the way around the perimeter with the binding?! I adore your improv log cabins and that fabulous piece with the vertical skinny greens reminds me of a dense stand of bamboo at the edge of a jungle.

  13. LA - wonderful projects - green is a soothing color, and it never ceases to amaze me how many shades of green there are! I will raise my hand and admit to medicating, with craft supplies! Enjoy the rest of your week!
