The “storm” left a bit of ice but we escaped once again! Connie and Roy arrived in Florida safely. The golden doodle, Moe, is visiting this weekend. I’m in a “piecing frenzy”! And I’m co soldering a nap this afternoon.

Remember Scrap Roll Adventure? Here’s the pattern cover.

And here’s the original quilt on the new owner’s bed!

Here’s my new remake in pink and gray.

I’ll have to piece a back – maybe this afternoon.

Here’s another little quilt I finished piecing – 60 degree triangles!

Sad news to pass along – remember Judy’s grand niece who was in that bad car accident the day of those treacherous roads? She passed away. She was only 18 years old. My sympathy to her family, Judith!

Question – why do I bake eggs? Because I can do about 4-5 dozen at a time when I use muffin tins. When they’re baked solid, they flip right out of the muffin tin and I serve them to the dogs, one a day. They freeze well, too.

Tomorrow is February 1 and the Dirty Dozen number is 9 – nine. I’m giving you an extra day. Here is my 9 – just a hand quilted by Gladys small quilt or pillow that needs binding. Wow! I might do that even today and have the rest of the month free!

Compared to some months, this is a piece of cake!

Here are the newest patterns in the online store:

Disappearing 9 Patch

Disappearing 4 Patch

Noah Novelty

Here are quilts, etc, from readers:

And here are my bullseye blocks cut out for tomorrow. Remember – this pattern is available as a pdf download or can be ordered from the shop for $12 including postage. It was originally on the cover of Quilts From Aunt Amy.

This will be fun! Until tomorrow – are YOU ready to start your bullseye quilt?

    Mary have been death cleaning my sewing room. What a mess. But I found 4 bags of bulls eye blocks cut up ready to be put together. My mom, sister Reva and Nan and I each made the blocks from our own stash cut them apart and traded.
    What a find since my mom and sister are no longer with us.
    When I find my sewing machine this will have to be first on my list! Lol

      Brenda Ks – wow! What a find! Follow along with us and join in along the way – when you find your sewing machine! Haha!

    Oh, how I’d love to join the bullseye sewalong! But I did buy the book so when I get a few UFOs off my plate before I commit to anything else.

    Fun, fun, fun, today. Mary!! Your so fast. The raspberry was just pieces yesterday. My Loretta looks like the golden retriever in the picture of the original raspberry cat. But she is only 25 pounds and rolls up like a cinnamon roll. The only dog ever to be welcome on the bed.
    I hope Coltan feels better today.
    Your longarm question has a response in Friday’s post.
    So very sorry for the young lady who passed from the car accident. Our prayers are for her.

    So sorry to hear of that young girl losing her life, so tragic & sad! Love the quilt show. Would love to do the bullseye quilt a long, but I just have to get some more ufo’s finished first. I have the pattern & will certainly be following along!

  5. Margaret in North Texas

    Beautiful finishes by everyone. I enjoy the show each day there is one. Thanks to all who provide quilts and sewing projects for them!

    Mary, I am so sorry the girl passed away, but maybe it is for the best. Absolutely tragic. Maybe more people will think about the weather and stay home? Mother Nature is pretty rough sometimes.
    In the last 2-3 emails of comments, somebody was wondering about a black and white Bulls eye. If my memory serves me right, when you had the ladies making the Bulls eye a year or so ago, one of them sent in a picture of here quilt — Black and White — and it was spectatular! Is there some way she can go back in old emails and find it?
    The rodeos are going strong. In pictures from the professional rodeo yesterday it didn’t look like a lot of people were wearing masks and not much social distancing in the stands. We’ll have to wait to see what happens, but they are outdoors and pretty tough. My favorite is the Ranch Rodeo. It is not for the Professional cowboys. The regular ranchers who are working outside everyday get to go up against their neighbors and see who can do the best at all the rodeo events. It can be hilarious. It also includes the Mutton Busting and Stick Pony riding contests for the kids.

    I am ready to go on the Bullseye- everything cut and most blocks ironed to find the middle easily. At work today so won’t know what UFO #9 is until I get home. But I am ready to get sewing! I have finished so many projects and used up scraps in the process with your DD process. Of course I keep adding new projects to the list….!

    I love the Minnesota pillows. I want to make one for my sister who lives there. I should make one for me, too, since I was born and raised there. Enjoyed all the finishes again today. We had snow and blowing snow overnight so our church was canceled this morning. Our road was all drifted in, but the snowplow came thru 4 times and cleaned it out with his big V blade. We are having church tonight, so will be able to go. So sorry about the girl that lost her life. Prayers to her family. That would be hard to lose a daughter at age 18.

      Billie Munn – did you get my message about the light backgrounds?

    Thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the young lady who lost her life in the car accident . How quickly life can change.

    I had wondered how the young girl in the car accident was doing, so sorry to hear she passed away. Prayers for her family.

  11. Sherrill

    Yep, I’m ready!! Been prepping for a couple of weeks now, getting parts and pieces cut (while also working on 3 other projects–yikes!). I cut my background squares 10″ and planning on a 7X8 setting for a donation (unless I totally fall in love) as I have the original from years ago.

    I’m so sorry to hear about the young girl. I’ve been praying for her and her family. How sad to lose someone so young.
    I love your remake in pink and grey. It’s amazing how different fabrics can change the character of a quilt. And your triangle quilt is nice too. I’ve been cutting scraps into triangles intending to make a scrappy triangle quilt.
    Once again the quilt pictures and other projects are fun to look at.

  13. Charlotte Shira

    So many finished projects! They are beautiful. I love your pink and gray remake and your triangle quilt. You are awesome at putting those pieces together so quickly.
    So sorry to hear of the young girl passing. My prayers to the family. It’s so sad losing a child.
    I’m ready to start my bullseye!
