TTMT #428 - jewells68 - May 17, 2022 - So Many Things and a Shark

In which I show a finished quilt top, fabrics and yarns for Project Linus blankets, pieced geese and of course, a shark! Longer than normal, but I promise I actually cut 6 minutes out of this video, so I apologize if it seems a bit choppy but better choppy than put you all to sleep, lol.

TTMT #427 - jewells68 - May 3, 2022 - Masked Rainbow Dots

In which I show yet another quilt top for Project Linus, this one pieced together from a panel designed for making masks. Also just a quick update on the flocks of flying geese that I'm back to working on and an upcoming class. It's been slow coming, but I am finally recovering from the past year of whatever the heck happened, and kicking myself back into sewjo. Stay crafty y'all!

TTMT #426 - jewells68 - April 27, 2022 - No More Mother Goose

in which I show a new Project Linus top pieced a few days ago using the last remaining bits of the big Mother Goose quilt donated many years ago that I took apart plus the new-to-me Wilmington "twinkle star" fabric I got in a bolt at ACR from the same line as the original quilt (only in a different colorway). It's now been turned into at least 3 Project Linus quilts. I can't find photos of the original quilt (though I know I took some) and I feel like maybe there was one earlier quilt made from it in 2015, but I can't seem to find that either. But I DID find photos of two quilts I made from chunks of this quilt back in 2016.

Making this top made me want to piece up up more tops from leftovers I've got sitting around, so while I should be quilting what's already pieced, I guess I'm just in a piecing mood right now. Stay crafty y'all!

TTMT #422 - jewells68 - March 17, 2022 - Demos, Orphans, and News

In which I talk about the demo I did this past weekend at Project Linus. I even do a quick overview of the technique I demonstrated, and talk about various fun options you could choose when doing this yourself. I also show more donated quilt blocks and give a quick update on what's on the horizon for me. A bit longer than usual, sorry about that, but I'll edit better next time. Stay crafty, Y'all!
