This and that

It has been a long time since I did much sewing machine work, and even longer since I did any machine quilting to speak of. I need to use from my fabric stash, and I like to make care quilts / charity quilts for children. My local university hospital has asked for quilts for baby ICU, and the sizes they ask for are doable for me on my domestic sewing machine. I do enjoy using the Double Dresden ruler to cut the tumblers. I have some other templates from the stone ages - Quilting from the Heartland -, but they are in set sizes. 
Set sizes are seldom the size I really want to work with.....

The after math of covid is still present, so I am taking it easy. I will not win any speed contests, but I do enjoy the process, which is a good thing and what it is all about here in Quilt Corner.

Finding that I had 8 spools of the same colour of the same machine quilting thread just make it as clear as mud that I really need to use from all kinds of stash for a long time 😂

This is from the prepping process of Kathy Schmitz' latest Christmas pattern. I thought I should get a lot done through Easter, but that did not happen. I have appliqued some trees and stitched a little here and there. I am thinking about digging out all my Christmas half done projects and see if I can get some of them done in good time for Christmas this year. That would be something 😁💓

It is lighter and brighter in the evenings here now. I love spring and summer. I hope we get good weather for outdoor stitching!

Wishing you a lovely day where you are - take care 💓
