well I took today for me. I did 2 row by row patterns. the first one is done except adding another cow when I get back to quilt shop to get small piece of fabric luckily they had one in their scrap bin. then will be ready to quilt. not sure if going to do by itself our put into a quilt. several shops in my area haven't gotten a winner yet so may try to put quilt together to win... the second one is pieced background and all the appliques are fused on and ready to sew down.... might get some done tomorrow.
just finished quilting this one for a customer. She just picked it up and loved it she does lovely hand embroidery work. I followed the blue dots for the quilting design and sewed on the binding so she can hand stitch it down.
also made another block this morning for my tavern blues quilt only 5 more blocks to make then ready for design wall to layout the blocks and decide on sashing and cornerstones looking forward to seeing this made into a top.
I got a customer quilt loaded onto long arm and 2 passes done on it going to look great. It is a hand embroidered double wedding ring. I am following the blue dots for quilting. Hope to work on it everyday until it is done this week.
when not working on it I checked out another UFO to see what was left to be done on it. I needed 8 more blocks made 5 of them were cut and kitted up so I cut the other 3 blocks . I don't have any more background fabric so this quilt will be one row short which will make it rectangle instead of square that will work for me. It is call Tavern Blues. It was a class I took couple years ago. I sewed 2 blocks so 6 more to go. here is one of them.. I am using civil war fabrics in cheddar, blue, brown, reds.
I also made some more pieces for my Bonnie Hunter midnight flight quilt. 30 of each.
Trying to move some projects along in between taking care of MIL. Happy with my progress for the weekend.
well I have been taking care of my Mother-in-Law for her broken wrist and surgery on other hand so has been staying with us. So haven't go a lot of sewing done.. Made couple of kitchen towels for a friends granddaughter that loves chickens.
I finished a customer quilt this was the first of the kind of quilt that I had made using applique and embroidery to make a family tree quilt. The family loved it. hoping for a better picture of this from the family. I forgot to get a complete picture of it when it was done...
Then I quilted 2 red and white log cabin block quilts that were baby size for another customer but didn't take a picture of them. Got these done this last week while MIL was resting.
While cleaning my sewing room one day this week to find the cutting table and my desk next to sewing machine. I found a quilt as you go string block quilt ready to put together so I worked on it and it is done ready to go to our local sheriff's department to hand out to a child in need. I have enough blocks done to make another one. Love making these since they are quick and mindless sewing. They use us scraps of fabric and batting and are colorful .
Today I hope to start on another customer quilt it is a hand embroidery one that I will follow the blue dots marked for quilting. The lady does wonderful embroidery work. Also cut the strips to put string quilt together with..
