Something New

I’m playing in the hand dyes again!

I can enter one or two items into the local art show for the same fee. So I’m trying to get something else ready to enter by Friday.

I haven’t worked with these skinny bits in a long while and I have a lot more exploring I want to do with this idea.

Have a great day!

Felt Flowers

Last week, my craft group with friends from my church got together at my house. We made felt flowers. It was fun!

My Accuquilt die cutter came in very handy! I cut circles and leaf shapes.

Here are my finished flowers. I wanted to make a wreath. They are not yet attached to the hoop.

Have a great day!

DWMonday ~ FQS Union Square Remix Part 2

Did you guess that this was the block I was working on for the Fat Quarter Shop quilt along?

I’m really loving these! The free pattern for these Union Square blocks is available on their web site.

This next photo shows my two choices for alternate blocks .

Also, thank you all for the lovely comments about Winslow! I’m sure you are not surprised that I am behind on responding to comments. 😁 She is settling in well.

Have a great day!

Winslow!

Meet my new puppy, Winslow!

She is a Bichon/Yorkie/Coton de Tulear mix and she was born February 1st.

I’m quite smitten with this sweet face! You will get lots of puppy spam in the coming weeks!

Time to play with my tiny girl! Have a good one!

Stitching Sisters’ QOVs

I’ve been working on Quilts of Valor for my Stitching Sisters QOV group this week. As usual, I’m just quilting these and have NO info on patterns. this first top was pieced by Pat.

The panto for the above quilt is called Worm Trails and I had it custom made to be 16 inches wide. It is available from Urban Elementz .

This next one was pieced by Mary Kay.

This panto is also fromUrban Elementz and it is called Amoebas Gone Wild. I also ordered this one in a 16 inch size.

Have a great day!

Finish It Up Friday ~ And So It Goes

I finished this up Wednesday night and planned to take pictures Thursday morning. Mother Nature had other plans.

I headed to the west side of the state Thursday afternoon to visit Daughter #3 and it was raining when I left home, so I took it with me hoping for better weather along the way. It rained almost all the way there. But about ten minutes from her house, the clouds parted, the rain stopped, and I was able to get pics on her fence!

The quilting lines are very close. I’ve heard this called matchstick quilting. It takes forever, but I think it’s worth it for a piece like this. I used a facing instead of a binding to finish the edges.

There is a local art show coming up and this will be one of my entries. I need to get moving on the other one!

Gosh, I love her fence!

Have a great day!

FQS Quilt Along ~ Union Square Remix

I’ve been working on another Fat Quarter Shop Remix project. I’m using these fabrics from al older Paula Barnes line called Carolina Blues.

I used these dies from Accuquilt along with my die cutter to cut my pieces.

Here they all are! I love a pretty pan of pieces!

And here are bits of the first few blocks.

These take a while to make, but I’ve enjoyed the process.

Have a great day!
