Teal Dragon Quilts

A world of Quilts and Dragons!

And a New One just begun

on January 15, 2019

Sewing, sewing and sewing! My new year is going just as planned. Well, sort of . I finished 2018 with 8 finshed UFO’s. This year I’m hoping to do 12 or more. I have 39. With that in mind I joined AllPeopleQuilt.com’s UFO Challenge. I love this one, because, the purpose is to move forward. So even if you don’t FINISH, just one step closer is good. APQ will pick a number each month, and that is the project to move forward. January is #3 Spinning Stars. Watch for photos on Instagram and FB.

I also joined two other online challenges. #QPBestYearEver2019 and #QAMStasBash. Both are keeping me motivated and are proving to be lots of fun. In between, I have been sewing on my Dresden Plate Quilt.

Dresdens from Bee Challenge and a UFO Vanilla Jamaica from a workshop class. I added a little twist! So say, hello to Twister!

I changed the Vanilla Jamaica Pattern by Trish Stuart a little and there was a lot of twisting and turning of the top to appliqué the Dresden Plates.

We are finally moving forward on the Teal Dragon House remodel! The sewer, plumbing, electrical, insulation in the attic (new!), roof and outside painting are DONE! Next up is the kitchen. New cabinets, new counters, new sink, new appliances and new floor. I can hardly wait for the start, but that means, I need to move all the kitchen stuff out. Oh my, where is it going to go? Believe me, this is a challenge I have been waiting for!

My pretty Teal Dragon House. Meet Freckles, my 4 legged son.
He protects me from all that is bad!

As you can see, I have a big 2019 planned. Please pray that I stay motivated and on task! And that my lungs stay clear of asthma!

Thanks for reading, Mary

  3. That quilt is really special. I’ve never seen anything like it. I follow you on instagram even though I do not upload to it, and have been watching your remodeling progress

      Thanks! I see you on Twitter, but I’m not on it that much. I’ve got Instagram connected to FB and Twitter. This is my favorite quilt so far. Pulled it out last night and slept under it! Happy dreams. We only have one room to go on the remodel. Right now putting my house back together and only one more room to do on that! Not much time for sewing or playing piano.

      • That must be an amazing feeling to have everything redone in your house just how you like it. p.s. I did write you a dm on Twitter too, but no rush 🙂 I’m not always there either.

        I don’t do Instagram because they haven’t worked out yet how to upload to it from PC. I don’t have a cell phone.

  4. What a great looking quilt!
