Weekend Update

I had two bags of scrap fiber and made two pet beds.  I used two blocks that are stars.  I wasn't crazy over either block so I bordered them to make them larger.  The animals at the hospital won't mind the crazy fabrics.  My cats have already tested them.  I believe they approve!

And some more Dear Jane blocks.  My blocks are not perfect, just as Janes were not. I modify blocks to suit my style (or fix to cover my screw ups).

Hope you found some time to stitch today.

Playing with Arrow Heads and ...

I woke up this morning knowing I wanted to do a semi custom quilt job. I went through the QOVs I had and selected this one. I loaded it up and had the best time. I need to load it again and quilt the other borders. Sure am pleased with it so far.
And because blogger is not cooperating, here are my arrow head blocks I tried out. It is a flimsy now, thinking about borders.
Here is the back of the QOV. YUM!!!
D Oh and I also completed some dear Jane blocks too. Frog Quilter

Sewing and Quilting

This weekend I have done a lot of sewing and quilting.  This is a QOV  where I added texture.  I'm pleased with result.  Maestro is inspecting and has given her approval lol.

The back shows lots of texture.

A love quilt to turn in at the next guild meeting.

I decided to purchase the Dear Jane software. It is well,worth it in my opinion.

The first block was a paper pieced one called pinwheel gone awry or something similar.
I hope your weekend included some stitching. Frog Quilter

Orphan Round Up

This first one had everything inside the inner blue border. I added the rest to bring it up to size.
This one would make a great guy quilt. I'm not quite finished with it. It needs to be a little bit longer.

I have taken the Dear Jane plunge. In indigo and Snow White. These are the blocks so far.

A strippy enlarged that would be perfect for a little girl. I put this one on the frame today and quilted it. So pretty. I still have more blocks to make more quilts. ThE pile has gone down a little bit.

For the kitty fans. This is Mr. Tale waiting for me to turn out the light, bed time.
