Midweek Makers 338

Welcome to Midweek Makers!


Summer is definitely here - we've had days in the 90's and none of the typical June weather of early morning coastal fog, and I fear those days are a thing of the past. How sad.

As for quilting, I have nothing to share (again, how sad), and instead more yard progress. We rented an excavator to remove a grove of invasive Acacia, and after a week, we're almost done. Here's hubby on day 1, though the majority of those little pesky trees seen in the picture are now gone, I do miss their shade!


Soon we can move onto other stumps and large ivy roots - what a chore! I can't wait for hubby to go back to work so I can take some days off and sew. Until then, let's enjoy what others are showing here at Midweek Makers.

From Gretchen's Little Corner, a pretty flimsy in the works,


from Quilts Etc, another pretty flimsy in the works,


and finally, a pretty finish from Needle and Foot.


And now it's your turn - what's your share this week?

Midweek Makers 337

Welcome to another edition of Midweek Makers!


The calendar tells me yesterday was the summer solstice - so time to get out those summer decorations! Of course, for me, that means all of my red, white and blue runners and quilts. Here's a sampling, patterns for which can be found in my Etsy/QuiltFabrication shop, under 4th of July. Be sure to use coupon code 'JULY4TH' at checkout for 20 percent off - now through July 4th.


There's also a page with links to (mostly) free patriotic quilt patterns, so be sure to check that out too.


Now let's see some featured quilts from last week.

From Cocoaquilts, it's Christmas in July with this finish,


from Quiltchatter, a pretty hourglass quilt,


and from Gretchen's Little Corner, a little crumb quilt.

Midweek Makers 336

Welcome to Midweek Makers where it's all about sharing!


I was so hoping to have my pink scrap quilt finished by now but work on the other house has upended that idea. I did find a few hours to work on the border this week, figuring out sizing and quantities. That was important since I don't have much of the background fabric left and bigger pink scraps are skimpy too. So, here's where I'm at.


Oh such slow progress! For someone who used to spend all day creating, sewing, and quilting, this is a crawl. But there's good news on the yard cleanup: the surface ivy roots are almost all gone! This week we're getting an excavator to dig up the big, deep roots, plus some tree stumps. We're getting there!

Now let's see some pretties from last week.

Quiltpiecer is also working on RSC2022 blocks, sharing a variety of pretty pink ones (putting me to shame!)


My Bijou Life has some bright and bold snails trail blocks to share,


and Quilting Gail shared twin quilts made from an Island Batik bundle - when you're done partying here, head over to her post for a chance to win some fabric!


Now it's time for this week's party!
