|After quilting all these, I should be better when using Sweetie, my Sweet 16|
Next to the quilts there is this box of scraps:
As we keep going around the table, clock-wise, we run into several of the blocks for the Folk Art quilt, in various stages of completion.
Remember you can click on the photos to get a bigger picture.Off Kilter Quilter fame, you might be looking for a pattern. Frances is using a pattern I sent to her. I found another one that was very much like it, on EQ7. There are so many variations out there! Jaye even has a tutorial on making a Dresden Plate block on her blog, Artquiltmaker. Come on! Make at least one block and use it for making a pillow if you don't want to commit to a full size quilt.
Continuing on around the table you'll find a simple linen slip on dress for summer. I am embroidering some color onto it to jazz it up a bit.
Our little elephant is still waiting for me to give her a few finishing touches:
The next two blocks for the My Favorite Things quilt are waiting for me to get started on:
That is the full tour around the table! I can hardly wait till tomorrow to get back in there and start playing with some of the projects or maybe even quilting one of those quilts!
Besides pin-basting, I also worked on a gift. I made a cover for a three ring binder. It will hold some memory pages for our yoga instructor who is moving out of the area. Here is the cover:
And here it is, opened up:
I think she will like it. All the students are writing notes that will be put into plastic sleeves to fill the book with. I think this is a great idea for a unique gift!
I went back and redid two of the blocks for the My Favorite Things. I didn't like the button centers for the flowers and made fabric ones that I like a lot better. Here are the befores and afters of the two blocks:
Last, but not least, I have one of the last 12 flowers almost sewn down on the My Tweets quilt. I had to move the green leaves and stem to make it fit right though. I am so fussy with things sometimes!
Till next time, HAPPY SEWING y'all!!!
