Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
The Red, White and Blue quilt that is on my list is for my GGS, I have a cute little panel that I am going to use for his sister with a Unicorn on it. She loves unicorns and mermaids. Seeing what you have done Riana gives me some ideas, but oh, all those half square triangles. I do have a lot of fabrics that I could use for them, so I'll just have to bite the bullet and go for it.
OMGoodness, Riana! Wish you had been my grandmother when I was a little girl.
Zoe, I'm surprised there are still weddings going on. I thought they were all cancelled. I would only make the table runner if I felt well enough to do it in the time allotted and if I really wanted to send a gift.
Riana the quilt top is pretty !
I was wondering, I got an invite to a wedding for my ex-sil step daughter. I have been kind to her from afar, I do not know her. The invite was for a gift, you all know. I have a heart table runner pattern that is about 53" long, I am thinking about making it more like 36" long as I think it would be used in other places, and maybe make two square ones that would be about 17" . http://quiltingdigest.com/quick-easy-heart-home-table-runner/ This is a picture of it. I have time to get all these things done, I think.
Gail, l still have a long ways to go. It's a double bed, and that pink border will go around top edge of bed. Those ballet slippers, mermaid, fairy appliques plus some novelty prints will form the " drop".and
Oh, that is so sweet, Riana. She's going to love that!
Now that the dress is off in post, l'm back at sewing little grandd's bec quilt. Got the center pieces assembled today.
Thanks, Gail. Feels good to finish my first UFO.
Barbara, good for you three runners finished, that's great. I am finally coming down the home stretch on my first finish for the year. The bonus is that you son is going to love them. To me that's always the best part, the giving. It's such a good feeling to go to someones homeand see your work displayed or being used and knowing that it is appreciated. Once I spent a lot of time and made a beautiful quilt for a friend and then saw it wrapped around an appliance in a dirty pickup truck when they moved. I never made them another thing.
Linda, hoping that you are feeling better and will soon be able to work on those Pansies. I'm really anxious to see it.
Thank you, RIana. When my son gets the package I will ask him to send pics. I think I can put it on my face page and then add it to my pics folder. I hope I can do it that way.
Barbara , l will cross those off your PHD list. Congratulations on finishing your first PHD challenge! Yippee!
I can see the pics on my camera. I took pics of my masks the other day. They show up on my camers, but I could not import those either.
I have finished my three runners. I am sorry Ican not post my pics. Something is wrong with my camera or my computer. My pictues will not import. I
Riana, you are right, using the hoop in my lap works wonderfully. I have several, one with the floor stand, a big round one and a very large oval one. I prefer the oval one, especially if I am doing the borders or sashing. Hoping to get this one done by next week at this time. The others are getting impatient waiting in line. Waiting for it to be warm enough for me to take themout on the patio to work on, this being confined is beginning to get old.
Mama Duck, I am working on the binding of my last runner. And I am all cleaned up in the sewing area and I'm ready for my next project. You can come visit for the next two weeks lol!! after that it will be messy again. I have tight quarters also. And it is so easy to take a trail of threads with me through out the house. I put and small black carpet to catch the threads at the sewing room door and it helps.
Zoe I love the pattern and the fabric you picked is perfect for it. You go girl!! Also love the purple mat!!
Gail, it's wonderful you're making such progress. Next St. Paddy's day you'll have it all set to use :-)) A hoop is much more comfortable resting on your lap on dofa or recliner. I took mine off the stand for that reason. And you can quilt while " listening" to the tv.
Mary, sometimes it's easier doing the " gloomy parts" on a gloomy day...they seem to fit. I always seem to reach for my brights on the sunny days ( if l'm not outdoors). You'd think with recent snows you'd be off the hook for a while, but l know the fire marshals look at all the lovely growth that spring wetness brings forth and shudder, they know what happens to it all after weeks on no rain come summer/ fall.
Zoe that must feel so good, getting on a roll now...bravo!
Gail, l know how it is using a sewing space in a " public area" of your residence. Right now, you needn't worry about guests popping by unamounced,lol. For sure it's still important to collect/ stow those tools and organize the area neatly for next session...l spend my last 15 min. of my day's sewing time doing this. The odd time l've let it lapse, it was no fun at all walking into the sewing area next day.So fast & easy when you stay on top of it!
Working on the gray and black ashes on the tapestry. Gloom... The county is trying to get us re-interested in fire safety for this summer. Too much at once.
Gail they do have a table runner pattern with it, I was thinking that too... but one thing at a time.
