It has been a log time since I have posted anything, but here is the what I have been working on.
This is a wedding gift that I made for a very special couple. I used my tumbler block, appliqued yoyo's and used a panel with scripture from Block Party Studio for the pillows. The quilt is king size. I quilted it with my Janome 7700 by sections and then pieced the sections together, kind of a quilt as you go method. Hope you enjoy it, they sure did!
I saw this pin cushion on the internet at http://pompomrouge.wordpress.com (a fun site) under pin wheel and fell in love with it. I just had to make myself one, I elaborated on it a bit more. I attached a Superior thread spool "bottom", the part that is removable, to the top and in doing so, threads can be interchangeable. Then I pushed some batting into the center hole to have a place to insert my needles. On the bottom of the cushion I glued a thread cutter. My pin cushion is portable and has everything I need in one unit. I love it and use it often.
The days are nearing for fireworks, parades and family picnics as we celebrate the birth of our nation. Time is short to finish up those Red, White and Blue projects and quilts that you start for this special day.
Here are just a few more items I have to share with you.
It is that time of year again when we celebrate Independence Day. The Red, White & Blue quilts start adorning our surroundings. I have a few that I would like to share with you today and will gather the rest in the days to come. I have been momentarily detained due to the raging Wallow Fire here in AZ which caused us to evacuate our homes here in Eagar/Springerville. We were allowed back home a few days ago, but life takes an interesting turn of events when something like this happens. Anyways, my home is fine, my family is safe, but the fire continues to grow. Here is the latest quilt I have and then a sneak preview of one that is the result of our Guild challenge using charm squares. The pots are made with Accucuts Tumbler block. It is not quilted yet, nor are the buttons on the center of the flowers. The quilt is called "Friendship Garden". Check back in a few days to see more Red, White & Blue quilts.
