Quilt, Questions and Next Installment Wardrobe Sewalong

First lest me answer a couple of questions from my quilt for Erin and Chris

Sheila asked:

Pretty quilt and may I ask how long did it take to complete it?

Well, Sheila, I cut it out one evening.  Did some sewing at two Wednesday night quilt sewing group (3 hours each night) and finished it up one evening at home

Elaray asked

Question: Do you send your quilts to a longarmer?

I do send my quilts to a longarm quilter and she is fantastic and local.


Next, let's talk about the Wardrobe Basic Sewalong - Lynne has a fantastic post on Jackets , head over to check it out.  This would be a great alternative for a puffy vest or fur vest.

I am liking the striped Tory Burch blazer or the yellow Old Navy jacket.  I have cut out a red ponted Hot Patterns jacket for myself.


Lastly,  I went to Paige and Jesse's this weekend.  It was chemo for Jesse and he has to do that in the hosptial all weekend long.  I head up to keep Paige company in the evenings and work on this big project, a t-shirt quilt for Jesse.  All the t-shirts are from his college days and one side will be Greek life, the other college life (he ran track), so there are LOTS of tshirts.

Here is the stack of cut up tshirts, took me three hours to get this stack.


  1. You are such a caring person. :-) I hope for the best for Jesse.

  2. You are a good support system for your daughter and husband. I'm sure they need some shoulders to lean on. That's what mom's do best.

  3. Thoughts and prayers to you and your family. The T-shirt quilt will be such a wonderful gift!

  4. Prayers for your son-in-law, Lori. What a wonderful thing to make him a quilt. It will be a great gift of his happy memories.
