Anybody else remember the little iron on designs? I first started doing those when I was about ten or so. I loved to do fill in embroidery. This, and the others are to follow are for my new little nephew, James Robert (due date of Feb. 14, 2013). I am doing several blocks, and then try to figure out how to set them together. Right now, I am having so much fun doing them. It's just so relaxing. Here is my next block:
Just have to figure out what colors to use for the butterflies.
Hope everybody has a great day!
Yep, a lot going on in my house lately. My school work is in full swing, and math is getting a bit harder than in the beginning. So, I have been studying that a lot. Math whiz, I am not. I have been sewing a bit. I finally got the retirement quilt top done:
I had my mom and my son holding it sideways, it's kind of long. I am doing a special label for it, when I get it done I will show it. Have to wait on the label before I can quilt it. I will try to quilt it in the next couple of weeks. I just thought of the fact that we have only about 8 weeks until Christmas. Where did the time go? Happy Quilting,
I have been somewhat lax in my blogging lately. With my math homework driving me crazy (who comes up with some of the problems to solve- 12 steps to come up with the answer being 7?!!!), and work, I have been feeling somewhat stressed. But, I have been doing some paper piecing to make a quilt for one of my managers at work. She and I have worked together for about 5-6 years now, and she is retiring in December. So, of course, I have to make a quilt. I decided to make some simple, yet colorful blocks, 48 total, then put together in a design. Here is the pieced block:
Untrimmed block, pieced on a paper backgroung.
Here are the 4 rows laid out. I will try to put them together tomorrow, or maybe tonight after I get off work. I am thinking a solid color inner border, maybe a 1-2 inch width. Then, a wider outer border maybe 5 or 6 inches. I do know though, that I will be quilting feathers in the light blue star points.
I love to quilt feathers.
Well, I hope everyone has a great Friday. I have to head off to work in a few minutes. Oy, the things I do to earn money for fabric! :)
