Threads of Memory – Mini Dear Jane – Ms Potts Block

Just when one thinks that the weather is really HOT it gets HOTTER.  Yikes 104 heat index today and believe you me – it is HOT!

But inside my Studio it is nice and cool!   Today I have completed all of my UFO’s and am totally caught up with my monthly project blocks. I have even been working on Block 4 of Bountiful Life – hope to have it finished this next week.

A couple of months ago I sent Jaydee some batik blocks that I had made along with 3 other ladies in my one and ONLY block exchange.  I decided that if I had not put those blocks together in 4 years that I was not interested, so they took a trip to Jaydee and here is the result.  She did such a beautiful job putting all 96 blocks together to make a beautiful quilt for her bed!  I know that she will enjoy it very much!

Today I finished my Mini Dear Jane quilt, the last of my UFO’s for now (remember the Texas quilt is still WIP status).  I really like how it turned out.  I auditioned 4 different fabrics for the background before I selected the Pin Money fabric.

Moving right along, I have also finished my Threads of Memory quilt by Barbara Brackman.  This will be a wonderful lap blanket for winter time (if it gets cold this winter).

And last, but not least, I finished the applique for Block 10 of Ms Potts from the BAS project.

Looking back, the month of June has been one of my productive months in quite awhile, mostly because I am feeling great and my energy level is at 100%!  This is attributed to eliminating my acid medication Aciphex and Zantac!  I did a cold turkey after I found out that the Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPI) can cause hip issues, gastroparesis, and in itself cause GERD!  It was not easy to do this, but I knew that something was not right with my body and after 13 years of a GERD medication that I thought was helping me was actually hurting me!  I have a very unique genetic makeup so not everyone needs to do what I did, but for me it was a God send that something told me to do this.  Glad I did it.   I may have to still stay on a  modified diet, but boy do I ever feel great!

I may start up the long arm tomorrow and begin quilting some of these tops.  That would really make me feel even better!

Have a wonderful 4th, be safe, and happy!   Keep stitching!

    • ME TOO! I can handle a little indigestion (LOL). I am thinking it is time to quilt – something different and full completion of a lot of projects that need to be in the “final completion” stage!

  2. You have been a busy bee. Glad you are feeling better. Thanks for posting my (your) quilt. It fits on our bed nicely and looks beautiful. I named her “Texas Girls” because Texas girls made the blocks. Have a good 4th.
