Wedding Quilt - a group effort




Four of us made blocks, we each had 2 fabrics and selected the other fabric from our "stash". Margaret put the blocks together with sashing. Yesterday we picked out a backing from my stash. We selected the brandywine feather panto, some bright yellow/green quilt thread and the machine magically quilted. I have one remaining pass to do this morning. We were just too tired to finish yesterday. Quilt size is queen so it's rather large. This is a beautiful quilt.

Winner, Banu Quilt, Love Quilt

I won these fabric labels from Nat


Thanks Nat. I don't know what I will do with them, but I'm sure I'll think of something. I quilted this for a friend, who made it for her Mother. Very Creative and so was my quilting.

Last but not least, a love quilt with really cool quilting. Love the Cats in this quilt.




Stitching for calmness.

Scrap Progress, Love Quilts, Baby Quilt

I have been continuing my effort to empty the last bag of scraps. I do 30 to 60 minutes most evenings. I heard that there are more coming my way. :-))))))))))))))) Love Scraps. Last weekend I quilted 2 Love quilts that turned out fabulous. I'm finally thinking that my quilting is beautiful. In other words I am less critical on myself. This has taken a long time to accomplish. It's not the individual stitches BUT the overall effect.
Here is the baby quilt for a co-worker. Her shower was Tuesday and a little whoosh came out of her mouth when she pulled this quilt out of the bag... :-)
There is the second love quilt on the frame behind.

What would I do without quilting? I think I would be lost. It really has become so much of my life and SO ENJOYABLE.

Ironing Board Make Over, Sewing Scraps, Kitty Update

Here we go, order defined by blogger.

I've been working on making mile a minute quilt blocks as I had 3 bags of scraps. (much like the one you see below with Sebastian in the picture). So 2 bags are finished and gone, working on the third one. Here are the blocks that have been trimmed. There are a lot here.

A picture of Blackie and Tinker Belle at the door checking out the front yard. Tinker Belle has grown so much. Still loves to fetch and retrieve especially with wrapped candy.






My ironing board was in desperate need for a make over so today that was my first priority. Taking off the old cracking cover and making a new one out of some decorator fabric I had.
I have to say it looks fabulous.
More sewing tomorrow. I'll do a few more runs on the Mile A Minute Blocks.... This bag will take awhile to complete.
