1/2 square triangles!

I had a chance to work on these 1/2 square triangle blocks.  All solid fabrics.  They were great fun to sew!  More to come, now that I have triangulations and can make them more accurately.  

The patterns are all found in this book by Lisa Bongean, of Primitive Gatherings.  It is a lovely book!

Would anyone like some reproduction fabrics?  This bundle was on the free table at guild, and I really would like someone to have it.  Just leave a message, and if more than one person is interested, I will draw for it on Tuesday.

Does everyone know about this but me?  This stuff is great!  It works as a template, like cut out cardboard, but is much thinner and makes a wonderful template to press around for simple shapes.  I love it!!!

Our friend Angie made it to Cleveland!!!  A long journey, but she is tough, and she made it there.  A plan is being formulated about what are her next surgical steps for her heart.  Your prayers worked!!!  Thank you so much for them!!!!!!!!

Prayers for our friend Angie

 Dear everyone, 

I ask you to lift up our friend Angie.  Many of you know her as the Threadcatcher.  She is embarking a perilous land journey over many miles to Cleveland clinic.around 600 miles via emergency ambulance.  Her heart cannot withstand the changes in altitude with care flight by air. I would love a thousand voices lifting her up in thought and prayer!  Please stop what you are doing and do this, please.  I pray for safety and strength for her journey.  She is such a darling person.  Thank you!

Sampler from much loved fabrics


I started this sampler, of all reproduction fabrics.  It was a quilt along a lot of years back, and I have always loved it.  It is super fun to work on!!

I am slowing working on these heart blocks, from a Facebook quilt along.  These are labor intensive little things!

TILDA fabrics!!!  Aren't they just so pretty??

I am making progress on the 1/2 square triangle quilt.  Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings has a book with all sorts of different 1/2 triangle patterns.  Great fun!!!

Thank you for your prayers for our Angie.  Hospitals, doctors and surgeons are working out details to get her the care she needs!!

!!!!!!!!!!!ATTENTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IMMEDIATE PRAYERS NEEDED!!!!!!!!!!!!

 The ThreadCatcher

Angie S. has been a blogger for many, many years.   Above is her blog link.  Angie is an amazing quilter and lovely person, and we have been friends for lots of years...she is so easy to love!!!  She also needs your prayers, and now.  If you are not a praying person, please send some positive energy out into the universe for her!!

Angie had open heart surgery recently, and she did very well through it.  She is tough, and that is no joke. A few weeks out from this, she had another heart attack, and she really did not realize it...and neither did her local doctors. She just knew she felt awful.  One of her bypass grafts shut down, and also...she has developed a hole in-between the left and right ventricles of her heart.  Now this particular problem is almost always fatal, immediately, for the adult person experiencing it, according to her cardiologist.  BUT ANGIE SURVIVED IT!!!!!!!!!!   Now?  She is going to a world class, premier heart surgery have her heart fixed again.  This means probably another open heart surgery for her.  She is a tiny thing...and I am asking for your support and prayers for her, please, please, please.  Angie rocks it...tough as they come...but this is a hard and long road!!!

Thank you!!!!!  I really appreciate you.  Thank you!!  Angie says I have permission to share this...

Tada!!!! Done! almost...

Hello!  I finished the checkerboard border on this quilt.  I am so glad, and now I just need to send it off to be quilted.  It feels great to finish this one.

This quilt is together, also.  I just need my borders, and it will go in the same package as the other one, to be quilted.  The red is the backing.

I have started making hearts for patients, and I will leave them randomly around the hospital.  Maybe actually in the waiting rooms....for the very intensive surgeries??

Hope you are doing fantastic!!!

Sweatshirt jacket

  Good morning!!  This is the second sweatshirt jacket I have made.  I got a large sweatshirt, because the sweatshirt really shrinks a lot. ...
