Showing Progress

I have made some progress since the last time we talked. I finished the flimsy for my grandson's wedding quilt....

I took it to my quilter and we picked out a couple of patterns. She was so thoughtful that she did a practice sample for me as a preview to view.  It ended up being 105" x 105" . I found a blue  backing. And I asked her to quilt it with a blue thread.

I then put together a pumpkin quilt , pattern by Sew Kind Of Wonderful.   I used their quick curve ruler(QCR).

I love it so much that I am now making another but with more orange pumpkins.

I have also been doing some embroidery but I will have to catch you up on that later, Martha.

Sent a Few More Packages Off

I sent a package off to my mom with four tea towels inside. With Easter around the corner I put rabbits on them.  A small gift for her and her three sisters for their monthly tea party.

Hope they like them.

I sent my daughter two small wall hangings and something to hang them up. First one is for christmas...

And the second is for Saint Patrick's day. I believe I showed you last time we got together...

Now I must get back to my hand quilting. Chit chat later, Martha.

I have been sewing on my grandson's weddding quilt and wish to share the first three rows. I have a total of seven to sew.

I have sent my grand daughters a holder for their mini Ipads and ear buds and such.

I also got back my son's quilt back from the quilter's and bound it and sent it to him.

I have done some applique....

I had my applique class and made this sample for them. The hearts and both inward and outward points. And the shamrock also had a bias stem. I shared 3 ways to make bias.

I also made my mother some mug rugs for her tea party.

I am presently working on some stitchery, but will have to show you another time. Chatter with you later, Martha.
