Happy Flag Day, Hi I am Lisa and would like to thank  the Fat Quarter Shop  letting me sew along today.  I enjoy blogging with the Fat Quarter Shop  and sewing in their quilt alongs and sew alongs! I love the free pattern and think these would  also look great if you just wanted to  make placemats for the 4th of July! It is great for a beginner or experienced sewer!

Alphabitties  are great for keeping track  of all your pattern pieces!


It is a great pattern to chain piece quickly together!



The Clover Forked Pins make these seams line up perfect! They are my new favorite notion!

I also like to wish my husband a Happy Anniversary,  22 years and going strong! I feel privileged to be your wife! 




Thank you for st…

DIY Infinity Scarf

Image
The  Fat Quarter Shop Project Remix


A scarf in the Summer! Yes! It is super soft, lightweight, and brings color to your day!


Tutorial by Crystal of Hello Creative Family  30 Minute Infinity Scarf


I am doing a one month challenge of only using Sewtites  (No pins or clips) and they worked perfect sewing the end together!


The pattern is great for beginners and does not take very long to complete! It only took me 30 minutes to complete.


The Fabric Pick a fabric you think is gorgeous,  that you don’t want to cut all up and sew back together.   It is perfect and stands out all on its own! I bought this fabric over 2 years ago second hand.   I knew it was vintage and prewashed.   It is a vintage lawn that we figured out.   Who made it nothing positive. Looks like, feels like, but couldn’t find it in a database of Liberty. It is 2 beautiful yards of Vintage Lawn and so soft!

2017 Comes Roaring In

Image
These are my happy little people! They make my heart sing and tears flow when they are unhappy. Today was Miss Z's Birthday, the big 4 and I didn't even get to call her. We see her on Sunday for her party. Happy Birthday sweet girl Nana loves you! This guy is growing up so fast! Handsome, shy, and smart he will have the ladies lined up one day. He is just fine and healthy for his age! We had a great time at a couple of girls birthday party. Here is another one of our babies "Tia" at almost 14 weeks she is learning to play with other dogs next door more her size and trying to stay out of "George" and "Brandy's" way. When she get tired she finds me and sleeps on my feet as I sew. I have spent more time with her training her to be a lover not a fighter, and I will say it is very tiring but rewarding. Snowball, Aurifil, and I are working on few secret projects! It is keeping me busy. I think 2017 will be quite the quilty year for me. Som…

FQS Spooky Delights Quilt Along

Image
Welcome to Week 2 of the Fat Quarter Shop's Jolly Jabber Spooky Delights Quilt Along! Each week the FQS will release a new step in the pattern by Anne Sutten. You can download the Spooky Delights Quilt Along Week 2 Quilt Center - Spooky Delights Quilt Along Week 2 I love this pattern and had such a good time working on the center section this week! You will too with piecing and some basic applique (no skills needed). You got this! I will say that I do find Pink Alphabitties® Specialty Marking Tools It's Sew Emma #ISE-701 (they come in blue too) to be very handy! The poster board with the foam in the middle works well for laying the whole project out. I changed a few fabrics for scraps I found in my stash. I really like a yellow moon and wanted the lights on in the pumpkins. How are you going to see anything! Here are my Ghastlies! I think they turned out great! See you can have a lot of fun with this tablerunner! Like adding a few extra bats flying closer to the moon!…

Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnetis such a talented author, pattern and fabric designer. I love her books and fabric lines with Riley Blake.Have you been following along with Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage and jumped on the #farmgirlfridays bandwagon? I love seeing the blocks each week on Instagram. The book has a great variety of patterns that are very easy to follow. It is designed to open and lay flat. The photography is so colorful and beautiful. Did I say cute, so very cute! A keeper my friends! Buy yourself a copy at the Fat Quarter Shop! Old Glory Block Living with two guys, my husband and grandson their hangout space is the livingroom. When I told them I was redoing the couch pillows they both told me they wanted to choose the fabrics. No girly fabric for them. The pattern for "Old Glory" has a scrappy look but that didn't get the go ahead…

Hello and welcome to In The Boon Docks my name is Lisa!
A quick rundown on myself: I am Christian, wife, mother, grandmother, veteran, and artist. In a rural area of West Virginia, USA, my family and I, live with 3 dogs, 7 chickens, a squirrel, and miscellaneous deer (they live in our woods). We grow, can, and freeze, both fruits and vegetables. I will admit I love to blog, blog hop, swap, sew, quilt, crochet, knit, and just about any DIY project. I am a fabric and Aurifil thread lover! Hopefully, some of the things I write about here will interest you and keep you entertained. If so, please leave a comment occasionally and follow.
