I've asked Barb, Quilter5, to join us as admin of the Sewing Cubit. She is a great quilter and I'm sure you all know her.

Welcome, Barb, thank you so much for agreeing to join us. I'm excited to see what new ideas you bring to our cubit!

OK I am just dropping in since I see a few people here that I know Smiling
For many years I sewed every stitch of clothing I ever wore and many other pieces as well. My mother taught me when I was a young girl and I made my first dress when I was 12, I can still see it in front of me.
I bought fabric for the sake of it, would walk into fabric stores just to feel the fabrics, and started every day behind the sewing machine.
Now I dabble a little here and there, make some costumes etc. but the real passion has left me....

Greetings and good luck with your cubit.

Hi Hetty,
How good it is to see you here.

I still make a lot of my clothes, the passion comes and goes, I think, for me anyway. But it's so good to meet those who also love to visit fabric stores.

Please join us again anytime, somebody is always being very creative around here. It might bring your passion back!

hey, Barb, good luck with the new venture. I'll drop by from time to time to see what's going on. Busy day today sewing for the babies and making more placemats for meals on wheels so I need to get out of bed and get showered. Just hate to set my feet on that cold tile floor. Need to pick up a few more area rugs so i can miss those chilly runs to the bathroom!

WOW it's been forever since I was here. I've been posting on the needlework thread and the pieces thread. Been busy with all the Christmas quilting and now it's clean up the sewing room again. I really need to get on the ball about staying organized. I get everything all put away and the very next day I've made a mess again. So maybe that will be my plan for this year. One project at a time and clean up between each one!!!!
I'm going to give it a try....How about you? What's happening in your world?

Well the first project that I've pulled out is a mystery quilt that I started in a class last fall. I was given a materials list and a partial cutting list to have ready before class. Class day we were given the instructions in steps. We did a bit of each step and at the end of class, we put together the beginnings of our quilt. Not until we were leaving did we get a picture and see an example of the finished top. Of course, one thing led to another at Christmas time and this got put aside. Now it's time to get going again. This is what the first four rows look like. There are thirteen in all......Thumb of 2011-01-30/quilter5/450182
Now I have make some more of these different blocks so I can continue.

Barb, that's so pretty.
Those tiny squares would drive me crazy. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

I wish I had the patience and the talent to do this. It's like somebody just said, I have arthritis in a couple of fingers and that sort of brings sewing fine things to a screeching halt.

The dark blue squares finish at 1 1/4" and they are the smallest pieces. Finished piecing shoud be about 51 X 71" and then you add nice wide borders and it should be 71 X91". I found a pretty piece of material that I really liked and these center block colors were pulled from that. It will be pretty when finished I think......

Believe it or not LK, this is really an easy pattern. The bloocks are made separately so you only have three/maybe four spots to match. Then when you attach the blocks to each other you only have one to match. The only really slow part is when you join the rows as there are several matching points. I don't want to get bored with this quilt so I only let myself work on it every other day.

In between I'm trying to figure a new arrangement for my sewing room. With the new machine I got at Christmas, it's crowded and needs some attention. I need to change things around as I can't swivel the chair anymore between the machine and the cutting table. Either that or I need a serious weight loss!!!!

Well I finished the piecing on the quilt. Now I need to add borders. Thumb of 2011-02-10/quilter5/50450c
I'm thinking a narrow light color and then a wider printed border.
