Here we are again at another week gone by....I missed last week's Off the Wall and will make up for it today:)
Now time to figure out some new stuff???? I am still struggling to figure out what to do and how it may look when done. Have I told you how much I really like my fabric! The above photo is of a couple of small dishes...the top one being floral and the next one being abstract (NOT my strong suit!). The bottom bits will melt into blobs like button candy....mmmmm candy:)
This photo shows the before of a small dish and some more earrings. I am really excited about these!
What else have I been up to? Well my Tropical Flags block came out in Volume 6 of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks. It will be out on shelves next week. So the blog hop was this week and today I get to pick winners and tell them the good news....So Fun!!
Now we are back to quilting, where I belong:)))
A few weeks back I showed the Cathedral Windows for the Pittsburgh Steelers pillows for my younger daughter. This is the Gerber Daisy quilt for my older daughter. She is a math nut and opted for a more contemporary geometric background. Her favorite flowers are Gerber Daisies though so this will go beautifully in her living room.
Lastly we have the Rose quilt. One of our talented guild members demonstrated a method of quilt as you go for hand quilting. I don't know why it has taken me so long to attempt this, but I finally did. I altered her method for my machine quilting since I didn't want to have to go back and add all the strips to cover my seams on the back of the quilt. I can definately see the benefit of this but I needed to think the borders through a bit more since I really didn't want the red inner border to go all the way to the edge that way. This piece is very small, maybe 22" square so a larger quilt would definately be more challenging but worth the effort.
Now if I have wet your appetite for more show and tell, make sure you pop over to Off the Wall Friday and follow the links at the bottom of the post:)
Have a great weekend!
