Itty Bitty Quilt Squares


These are wool applique 2.5" quilt blocks.  Very fun to do.  I plan to frame them after mounting them on black wool background.

Hoping to get started on some new projects soon.  Have been waiting for M. to somewhat catch up on quilting the Project Linus quilt pile that I have.  Didn't want it to get too over-whelming!!!

A little of this, a little of that

Been working on several different things lately.  The first picture shows my first attempt at using
my Brother PE-150 embroidery machine.  What fun it is to watch the machine "build" the design!


This is a picture of my last Snowman in a series of snowmen for each month.  I did one each  month so didn't get tired of them.  Fun project!


This is a Buggy Barn pattern that a lady from my Tuesday Sit and Sew group had started and gave to me to finish for Project Linus. Silly old cows!!!!  She did 5 of them and I did four of them---so glad there weren't any more to do!!!!  Thanks so much JoAnn!!!!  I'm sure either a little boy or girl will like this one!!!

Talking Turkey

 Turkey time---this poor turkey has been in the drawer for the past year, waiting for me to take out the quilting that I didn't like and start the quilting process over.  Now he's looking pretty good!!!!
 
 
 
 This is a bug jar quilt.  I think some little boy will like this!  Going to Project Linus.

Sewing Room Wall Hanging

 I made two quilts alike with patriotic fabrics.  One is backed and bound with red and the other is backed and bound with dark blue.  They will go to Project Linus.

 
This is a wall hanging that I made for my sewing room.  The blocks are machine embroidery from my friend, Debi.  Thanks, Debi! The blocks show different sewing accessories.

Some Quilts for Project Linus

These are 4 quilts I made for Project Linus.
 This is a four-patch one.  It's hard to see, but the binding is lime green, as is the backing!  Very cheerful!
 This is my old stand-by Yellow Brick Road.
 This is another Yellow Brick Road that has fleece for the backing and I used fleece for the binding.
 
 
 
 
This is two different yardages put together and quilted.  Definitely a baby girl quilt.

Autumn is here!

 

This is the pattern called "Pow-Wow.  Fun to do.  Made for Project Linus.

The weather has been going between hot and cool.  Cold front came through tonight with storms.  So it is nice to have it a little bit cooler.
