I’m glad to be back

It’s been a long while since I’ve blogged and truth be told, I was so sick I didn’t miss blogging, I didn’t miss my longarm or domestic machines, and I didn’t miss fabric.  For someone who did all of those things daily, that’s quite an admission.  Although, towards the end of my hospital stay, I did do a bit of hand piecing.  It was a UFO project from a couple of years ago.

The pattern is called Chain Link by ivan and lucy .  My copy of the pattern is back from 2014.  I couldn’t find it on their blog, but they do have the pattern in their esty shop.

 

 

The new year saw me gaining my strength back daily.  I now feel like my old self.  I attended my first guild meeting.  I even did blocks for our BOM draw.  Because of a low turnout due to bad weather, the draw for Jan will take place at Feb meeting…… Sure would like to win these.  It’s a great way to use up your scraps.

I sewed a dog bed up on my domestic and gathered up 2 green bags of fabric and batting scraps to use as filling,

This will be a modern asymetrical layout.  White on both sides.  I plan to quilt the chain design in the great amount of negative space I will have.

And I finished off that charity quilt that got left on my longarm back in early July  ( 3 bleeps ) with half a row to go.

In July my machine needed to be sent to Utah for an upgrade. She came back in September. Due to my health I wasn’t able to have her installed properly in the home until the first of January. 6 months is a long time to be away from quilting.   I’m certainly rusty with my technique, but I know I will improve as I get more quilts done.

Hopefully I’m back to posting more regularly.

  1. SO GLAD to see/hear from you!! I’ve been wondering for sure, and hoping all was okay… I’m happy to hear you’re feeling much better and that you’re quilting again. So very sorry to hear of the health issues and I wish you a much better 2019 Linda. Your BOM block is a really cool one! I know I planned to make arrows for my RSC blocks this year, but do you think I can find the oh-so-cool arrow block I wanted to use? It’s driving me nuts!

  2. Hi Linda! I am so glad to see a post from you, and was wondering what was going on. Gosh, how scary to be so sick for so long. {{Hugs}} I am glad to hear you feel up to sewing and quilting again. I suspect that quilting is like riding a bike. You may not do it every day, but it all comes flooding back to you once you sit on the seat and put your feet on the pedals. Those guild blocks look like fun and I hope you DO win them. I’m so glad you’re back. ~smile~ Roseanne
