Welcome back to Hobbies Up To Here!!
In this episode we sit down and share the life and process of The Beatles quilt! It’s gone by many names (all Beatles titles) and it’s currently being called The Blackbird Quilt. No matter how it has been known, it’s now got a reputation that precedes it. And rightfully so! The quilt is a project thought up by my dad and with the help of my mom and many other friends, has been brought to life!
For more pictures and details on the Blackbird Quilt, make sure to head over to our Instagram page where all of our pictures in progress have been posted!
Welcome back hobbyists and crafters! Today we update you on some of our current projects and the process we are making on a lot of our quilts and stitching.
My dad has made MAJOR progress with his Frank wall hanging. This is the second one after he ran into some issues with the first.
Mom’s failure is fertilizer quilt top is done and she’s using the smaller one to practice her free motion quilting. This weekend she’s picking up some backing fabric to finish this quilt for my sister in law.
Dori pulled out her Cat in the Garden appliqué project and wanted to get it finished except some important numbers are missing for the borders!
But we have a few resources we can use to get the measurements for the borders.
Her new stitching project is really coming along and she’s enjoying the process!
I’ve got a bunch of blocks done for my Puzzle Box quilt and it’s piecing together nicely.
And I’ve attached the binding to the friendship quilt so I’m nearing the end of this two year project!!
It went on smoothly to the back and I plan to hand bind the rest! Almost done!
And I got the good word that I’m in class with Libs Elliott to make her Watcher Skull quilt at QuiltCon 2018!!!
Now we’re just waiting and hoping that another spot opens up for my mom!
Welcome back, hobbyists and crafters!
We’ve got a fun episode chatting about, well, US!
Thanks to all our friends and listeners who submitted questions. We had a great time sharing some unknown facts about us and really opening up to all our good friends and our new listeners!
And a quick moment to promote a contest I’m in. As a teacher, getting technology and classroom supplies to support a full class can be a daunting task. Through Duolingo, a language program that can help my English language learners, I’m trying to win iPads for my class! It would really add to my lessons and give my kids the advantage they need to help them build their language skills and their computer skills.
How can you help? Well it only takes a few moments to click this link and then vote for my class! That’s all!! And every vote helps me get closer to winning some iPads for my class to use during language and ELA centers. Thank you to all those for helping out!!
We may not be quilting much these days but it’s still a favorite hobby of ours. Sharing our concerns or frustrations together can really help us know our intentions and also where we need to work a little harder on our interests. That’s what friendship and quilting buddies are for!
