Hey Judith, the 1/2 circles are 15x7cm and the middle one is 15x12cm

I cut out circles of fabric, folded in half, and ironed fusible web between the fabric.
Then I ironed and starched the 1/2 circles 3 times... used pinking shears to trim the edge and then
I made the binding and attached the 1/2 circles between the fold and top stitched and then added mini yoyos and buttons....


Just a fun little project for a rainy day...

Here is my latest creation,, I had it ear marked in an older issue of a MJF magazine...
A French Press coffee maker 'jacket'..

I had to create my own pattern to fit my Press..

then sandwich the fabric and batting RST, sew and turn right side out and top stitch..


backside, I used Hook-n-loop tape.

front side..

So now if I dribble while pouring, the 'jacket' will catch the dribble..

I do like using my French Press when camping...
easy peasy if you pleasy...

Grace -- now that is something I never would have thought of. I don't drink coffee but DH has two of those press coffee makers. Some day if I run out of projects to finish I may make him one.

I love hopping on this thread! Every time I come back everyone has been so busy, especially lately! I truly love reading and seeing what everyone is up to. It keeps me motivated. Right now Iím just trying to play catch up on some crochet and jotting down some ideas for the future. I had a friend suggest I make some more crochet garlands. Iíll have to see what I come up with.

Judith, your quilts and kitty are wonderful!
Krista, what a special gift you gave your mother. Great job! Great daughter!
Grace, the garland is so cute. French press cover is nice too! I see you have an inspector on the job! Did the inspection pass? LoL!

I've been making Pin Cushions, mug rugs and cutting squares for the fabric swaps. Going through my fabric is like shopping! I am finding fabric I forgot I had!
Some I like and some I wonder what I was thinking when I bought it! LoL!

Be Blessed and Be a Blessing,

Darlene -- I've also been shopping in my fabric stash. Haven't bought fabric since this whole quarantine thing began. I'm having fun creating out of what I have. I have no idea (or memory) of where I got some of this fabric.

We're going up to the hills for a couple of days so I will be having fun with Black Beauty -- my hand crank sewing machine I keep up in the trailer. I have a shoebox of 1 Ĺ inch squares that I'm sewing together into a postage stamp quilt. Along with my iPod full of music and recorded books it will keep me happy while DH is out with his archery buddies.

GRRR I had typed a LONG message here and lost it when I put in the wrong MJF password. Let me try again.

Judith - Love the churn dash quilt. I have made my first red and white Broken Sugar Bowl quilt top, thanks to a year-long block swap with my quilt guild. I have also been sewing together blocks made months (maybe years?) ago - 1. a Bonnie Hunter pattern, 2. a Pat Speth Nickel Quilt pattern, 3. a Sewing Themed Row Quilt from a swap several years ago, and my red and white Broken Sugar Bowl. All of these quilt tops still need borders. In addition, we bought a new king-size bed (we've had only a queen and a full size up to now) and I discovered I have None, No, Zilch, Nada king-size quilts. I found a vintage top I had purchased several years ago and it will just about cover the TOP of the bed, so I will add 2 inner borders and a pieced outer border to make a quilt for the bed. I like my quilts to hang over the sides quite a bit so the mattress doesn't show, so I have to add about 16" in borders to this top.

Grace - Love the banner and the French press covers.
Krista - great mother-s day gift. No wonder she loves it.
Darlene - I think we all have some of those "What was I thinking when I got this fabric?" fabrics. Bonnie Hunter has always said, If you still don't like this fabric, you haven't cut it in small enough pieces. LOL! I have found some of those during my quilt room organization in my new house. I love scrappy quilts, so I will use them, just not sure when, where, or how. LOL!

I will take pictures and post today or tomorrow.

It must be because we have loaded it up with so many wonderful projects!

I finished all the popsicle holders and will be mailing them off today. Now back to my other projects!

Here are the quilt tops I've been working on.
Bonnie hunter pattern, though I revised it some. Hers is on point, and mine is set in rows. It is a scrappy center block with the white sides and colorful cornerstones, with a polka dot fabric between pieced blocks. The center of the fifth row from the bottom has a farmgirl in it.

This is a Pat Speth "Nickel" quilt. All of her patterns use 5" squares of fabric, also known in the quilt works as Charm Packs. This quilt has house blocks sewn together. I have various house fabrics to use for the borders.

Next is a sewing-theme Row Quilt, I made the center row, with Jake (my former cat) looking out from behind my sewing machine (and I need to sew a darker blanket stitch around the light machine to make it stand out), which he did all the time when I was sewing. Members in my quilt guild made the other rows of pincushions, singer sewing machines, and lots of other sewing items. I love the top and bottom rows - cats and a mouse holding up a spool of thread on the top and words for me on the bottom. I have some cats-with-sewing-machines fabric for the back, though it will need a border to make it large enough on all four sides.

My red and white Broken Sugar Bowl pattern. I supplied the white-on-white background fabric and every month we exchanged boxes with our quilt blocks and others made one of our blocks when we made one of theirs.


Below is the old quilt top I bought at a thrift shop. The pattern is Square-in-a-Square. I like the way the maker used bright colors and each diagonal row highlights one bright color. I need to add borders to this quilt top to make it a large king-size quilt for my new king-size bed.


I'd love suggestions for borders on all of these quilts, but especially for the one that needs to be king sized. I need to add about 15" to all four sides, and plan for two 4" borders and then a pieced border of squares or piano-key strips. I do have lots of sewing theme fabrics and a few house theme fabrics for those two quilts.

Holy Milk Cow you girls have been very very busy. Love the banner and the French press covers. I would have never thought of a French press cover!
What a wonderful mother's day gift. Wow
Great quilt tops.
Still working on my whole quilt. It will be 7 years in the works come October! But getting close.

There is never a road so long that there isn't a curve in it.

Linda -- with all those lovely tops you are going to be doing the same thing I am -- spending many hours days and weeks quilting. I can't imagine anyone giving that top to a thrift shop; there's many hours of work put into that. Love the cats and sewing machines!

I'm quilting away on my UFO tops. The third one is on the machine now. Unfortunately I've been working from the smallest ones up so now I have two 80x80s to do and one 100 inches. I'm afraid I will have to find someone with a longarm to do that one as I won't be able to quilt it on my Bernina.

WOW Linda! You have been very busy! Your quilts are gorgeous. I donít have any suggestions on boarders since I donít quilt, but anything you do will look amazing. Your first quilt, with the blue squares, is my favorite! With the red and white one in close second.

Linda, those are beautiful! You have been busy! Enjoying your new sewing room?

Forget about this page and start it as a new page like The Porch did and stop posting here. It's obvious this isn't getting fixed. What do you think?

I'm for that, Darlene. This is way too long, and that could be why it is causing problems.

Judith - I do not quilt my own, unfortunately - I send them to one of many longarm quilters in my guild. Plus I am treating myself to a maid every 2 weeks and she happens to be a longarm quilter. LOL! May have to see what she can do.

Also, turns out we are returning the king size bed and getting another queen size - the wall in the bedroom was not long enough for the king size bed and 2 night stands. We are buying a new bedroom set and the wall LOOKED large enough, but all night I dreamed it was not big enough and this morning we measured - and sure enough, it wasn't LOL! Luckily they hadn't delivered the bed yet and are switching out to the queen size. WHEW!
