Veggies, Fruits, and 2 1/2″ Strips

The Whirled Peas quilt is coming along.

18 of 20 blocks pieced, 2 of each fruit & veggie. Only 2 more blocks left to piece.

2 watermelon blocks in progress. Then it will be time to sew all the blocks together into a quilt top.

This Fall, I’ll be sewing together a Jelly Roll Rug with several of my quilty friends.

I cut strips from my fabric stash instead of buying a Jelly Roll. I still need to cut batting strips for the rug.

Earlier today one of the quilt groups I follow on Facebook had a post asking if any of the members do clothing mending. My answer was I will only do hemming for special people in my life. No mending, no alterations. If asked, I suggest the person take their garments to a local alterations shop. There are several in our town. I’ve even done so when my husband needed a zipper repaired.

How about you, do you hem or alter clothing for family or friends?

Funny thing is, I was just asked Sunday if I would hem three sundresses! I caved and said yes to this friend. Isn’t it interesting that people equate quilting with any other kind of sewing they need? Curtains anyone!?

How did I do on last week’s To-Do List:

  1. Continue papering piecing Whirled Peas blocks. ✔️
  2. Get back to FMQ Chic Country before it turns into a UFO! ✗

This week’s To-Do List:

  1. Turn Whirled Peas blocks into a quilt top.
  2. Get back to FMQ Chic Country, it is turning into a UFO!
  3. Hem three sundresses.

    Curtains, not any more, mending, only our own, hemming, that would be hand work,and NO to that. making something new in the clothes department, not now, but bags, cord holders, microwave bowl holders, cat blankets, small wall hangings, yes to them all, small, easy to finish, and a lot of joy in giving any of the above.
