MN Quilt show III

So we meet again! Here are the last of the pics...

This is what I have been working on lately , A project from last year's stitch therapy. Wool applique on cotton.

                                    I made two place mats.

This is my August stars by Julie Herman or Jaybird Quilts. I got a few more rows finished, but still more to go.  Will check up on you a little later, Martha.

Minnesota Quilt show in Duluth

I went to the Minnesota Quilt show in Duluth this past week. It was very interesting , but not as good as years past in my opinion. I do have some pics to share with you. 

I will post more pics later but hope these inspire you. Martha.

From Flimsy to Finish

Got a few things back and have put bindings on and labels.

This is the table topper for my son and a label pic is next.

This is a small piece done by a friend who passed away. For me it was a way to remember her and appreciate her work. That is why this x-stitch is special.

This is a wall hanging also going to my son.

It is very important to label things so that when you are gone people (and your kids) can tell who made it . It also is a record that you were here and left something for prosperity.

This is my welcome wall hanging , it is in my hallway. All three patterns are from Sew Kind of Wonderful 
and use the Quick Curve Ruler.

I have a new quilt started and have a start on the  first row...

Tula Pink and Jaybird combined!!! Chit chat later, Martha.

April Showers

Today we are having a light drizzle outside, good for flowers and bushes. However tomorrow we are in for a light snow, or so the weatherman says.  Good variety of weather, also a good variety of projects to show you. First up are my table topper and wall hanging of Sew Kind of Wonderful pumpkins, they are a flimsy and off to the quilter's.

Wall hanging

I added the border on the top as a header, otherwise they are pretty much the same.

table topper has 3 more orange pumpkins.

This bunny is from Kathy Schmitz monthly embroidery block group , which I am a member of.  I am a little behind because I think this is February's.

This next one is a freebie from the Internet, not sure from whom, much too long ago to remember, sorry.

Just have to do the words " sewing machine".  I have also started a new project with a jelly roll of Tula Pink and a Jaybird pattern. I will give you a better picture and idea of the pattern next time....

Chatter more at a later time, thanks friends for stopping by, Martha.
