It has been nearly 3 weeks since I last blogged…..
It was not intended, but life happened, in so many ways – some good, some not so good.
Here are some of the good things – my finishes :-)
Above – the Just Plain Nuts quilt is done, binding and all. I wonder if I should put a sleeve on the back, as the quilt is going to Birmingham with my machine quilter shortly.
I got a small piece of this New York fabric for my birthday, just the right size to make DD2 a small coin purse for her birthday.
You might remember she lived in New York a year ago, and I got to visit her in April last year.
We were together with friends when this fabric was bought, in the shop The City Quilter in New York and we have been to some of the places on the fabric together, like Grand Central Station and Greenwich Village :-)
Digging into the Ufos and Wisps:
I had 3 care quilt tops ready to be quilted. Now they are done, and sent in to the care quilt coordinator.
I have lost the passion for making care quilts, so these are the last ones from my sewing machine.
over 100 care quilts,
and a gazillion hours "in the service".
I wonder how many yards of fabric, how many yards of batting, how many spools of thread, and hours of driving I have been putting into the care quilt project over the years. Not few......
These potholders are made from the best pieces of an old denim shirt, and is part of a gift for my favourite brother in law, who is a passionate BBQ man, together with a good steak knife and a box of marinade seasoning.
This stitchery is just framed with a binding, like the traditional tablecloth style, and the stitchery do not have any knots or threads wandering on the back side either. My craft teacher from school would be proud of me :-)
What happened to the angel quilt?
The top is done, but I have not done any machine quilting yet.
