Thursday, August 29, 2013

Well, I wrote last time about my UFO's.  I've gained a little momentum with the locker hook rug project.  I took 20 minutes and cut a gazillion (yes, it's a word) strips.  I also make myself work on it every Friday night.  I even put it on my official to do list, so I can cross it off and feel the sense of accomplishment.  lol  I'm so OCD.
Here is a pic of the little bit I was able to accomplish Friday night (and some Saturday!)

As you can see, if I could just sit long enough it probably wouldn't take me too many Friday nights to get it done.

And you may be asking yourself, why does she want to complete this so badly?  Well, I promised myself that I would not start any other projects before my UFO's were finished. I have 3 left to go.

The reason I'm in such a hurry is that I have a new BOM starting in October--the Rose of Sharon BOM.  I'm sure you've seen the book and DVD that I've written about, so I won't post them here again.  But, I just added some new fabrics to the stash for that BOM and they are SUPER yummy.  I just love batiks.  (at first I didn't understand when quilters said this, but now I DO!)

 
 
The bottom one is actually a blue, not black like the pic.  I can't wait for this BOM to start! If you haven't signed up yet, shoot me and email ASAP!  info@customquiltkits.com The books are $15, the DVD's are $18.  The BOM is $10/new customers and $7.50 for returning customers.  I have a needle turn and a fusible option.
 
 
Gotta run, gonna work on that UFO!
 
keep quilting!

I'm not doing very well with my UFO list.  How about you?  I still have one more to finish by machine (the machine quilting).  That will probably get done this year.  The other two are hand work, and I've lost my steam.  The locker hook rug is not happening.  Maybe it's because I don't keep a pile of strips to use close by, maybe it's because I never "sit" long enough to work on it, and maybe it's just because I'm bored with it.  I am determined, however, to not start another project until I get the rug done.  It does NOT mean, though, that I can't give my Mom projects to "test" for me...lol.

I will be starting a new BOM in October.  If you like applique (needle turn or fusible) and batiks, this is for you!
We are using this book/DVD:

I will have the books for sale for $15 and the DVD's for sale for $18 (Amazon currently has the DVD for $50).  Due to copyright each participant needs to have his/her own copy.  If you don't want to buy a copy of this, you can always get it from your local library, or maybe your guild library.  The blocks will come with precut pieces and a background square.  The batiks have been pre washed to prevent bleeding.  The price is only $10/new customers and $7.50/returning customers.  You can join for 3 months and make a table runner or join for 12 or more months and make a super size quilt! The choice is yours!  I am also offering 2 choices of applique~ needle turn (using the freezer paper method described in the book/DVD) and fusible.  Just let me know which method you prefer so I know which kit to send you.

Whew!

and when I started I didn't know what to write about...=)

until next time...keep quilting!

Bluefield VA quilt show

Thursday, August 1, 2013

I think I finally recuperated from quilt shows, vacations (complete with nasty sunburn!) and laundry and have to head back to work.  Where is the fairness in life?

Here are some pics of the quilt show! Enjoy!




 






























until next time,
keep quilting!
