Here is the latest T-Shirt quilt that I made. It is the first one that I have quilted all over. Usually I just quilt in the ditch. It was fun. Not as bad as I thought. I love the way the white thread pops off the black sashing.
I was surfing Pinterest and came across a pin about how to hang a quilt. It is super easy and just had to share it. The tutorial is from Amy @ Amy a La Mode. Definitely gonna try this.
I found a little time for some embroidery and applique today. I appliqued a lady bug from Applique Alley on a burp cloth today. I also embroidered one on a bib. They are too cute.
Oh and I embroidered this Christmas design on a hand towel the other day. I am thinking it will definitely be hanging up this Christmas.
I used the Moda Nautical and Nice charm pack to make the above quilt. I didn’t use many of the light colored charms. I like how the squares float off of the blue fabric. To me it resembles square life preservers.
I free motion quilted the baby quilt with a wave pattern using a cream colored thread from Ken’s Sewing Center. The fabric on the back is a Noah’s Ark print that I got a ton of years ago at a thrift store. I think I may have enough left for one more baby quilt back.
Joyce Wood, a Co Chairperson for the Santa Rosa Quilt Guild in California contacted me a while back about using the True Blue quilt block pattern I designed for their July (BOM) block of the month. She is going to send me a picture of the winner with all of the blocks they won.
Needless to say I was flabbergasted and still am. It is an honor to be contacted by others who want to make quilts from the patterns I design. It is gratifying to know that other people read my blog and like the patterns. Hopefully soon I will have time to work on more free patterns.
Had to share a picture of the Expand-A-Tote Day Extender from Thirty One Gifts that I just embroidered for a friend. A few minutes of frustration while hooping, 10 minutes of stitching and watching, and Voila!
Just a side note, Thirty One Gifts doesn’t embroider these bags. It is made of a water resistant lining and embroidering it compromises this.
