Color it red blog hop

Hello!!!!!



Welcome to the first day of the color it red blog hop.   This blog hop is hosted by Carol at www.justletmequilt.blogspot.com.

When this blog hop was first announced I knew exactly what I was going to do.   I have had this quilt ready for quilting for some time now, and thought it would be perfect.


Some of the ruler quilting I am doing. 



Well, life happens.  Work happens. And I was putting in extra time at work.



I seriously thought about just emailing Carol and telling her I just couldn't do it.  Then I remembered these heart blocks I had made.


 Original plan was to make a wall hanging and machine quilt.  Well, for some strange reason hubby and I had been discussing when we were going to remodel the upstairs.  Some rooms had new carpeting in about 22 years ago, and some have not been upgraded in the 25 years we have lived here.  We ended up going to a home show and because hubby had today off he scheduled a home energy audit.  Dang.  Better get rid of stuff.  I had to ban myself from the sewing room to get things done.

So I decided to hand quilt this.  I worked on it every chance I got.  I had hoped to get binding on it yesterday, but to no avail.  But it will be done this week.





This pattern is a free pattern from Allison at www.cluckclucksew.com. please check out her site as she has some very cute patterns.

As for the dejunking of rooms, closets, etc. I am down to 2 rooms.  1 is my sewing room and 1 is the file/office room, which I currently have some sewing and quilting stuff in.   My sewing room was remodeled about 5 years ago, but I thought if I need to put other things in there, I really only want to organize it once.

So Carol I am sorry I did not get completely finished.  I am really trying to be more organized.  Organization is not my strong point.


I have started working on this one.  I decided feathers on the heart would be fun. Currently my feathers are drawn in and I will start quilting today at lunch time.


Just a quick recap:

Pattern is from Cluck Cluck Sew
Quilting was done by hand with no markings.  I just free handed it all.
Please visit these lovely bloggers throughout this week.  They always have something fun and inspiring to share.

  2. You're right--life gets in the way. I'm glad you shared anyway because we all enjoy seeing what others are doing, finished or not. I'm impressed with your hand-quilting which is not my cup of tea. Hang in there!

  7. So glad you shared what you have. I’m sure they will be lovely. Life does get in the way. I know because our heater went out for the second time in 2 weeks and I’m not sure what I will get done today.

  8. Oh, Kathy, no need to apologize. I love it when people like you stick with it to the end and post what they have. We all have "moments" that cause us to get behind (I definitely have some of those) so I appreciated you sharing both of these lovely red projects. Your hand quilting looks beautiful! I've been decluttering, packing, and getting ready to move, so I totally understand the craziness of what you're going through. I'm just so glad you hopped with us today! xo

  12. I'm so glad you shared your work. Life gets in the way all to frequently and we all have those times...it's nice to know we are in good company. I have to say, if all that hand quilting was up to me, it would never get done. You are doing a spectacular job on it!

  17. One way or other quilters always manage to find some time to stitch, even by hand. I LOVE hand quilting, both the finished product as well as actually doing some. It is so therapeutic even though it takes forever! You go busy girl & it would be great to see your projects when done! Thanks for joining in on the hop & sharing your creativity
