I have been trying to finish up some projects and quilt tops. Making some progress that I want to share with you.
I completed "A Warm Welcome". I really like the combination of the house blocks with the pineapple blocks. A Jo Morton fabric was used for the border. The pattern is from the book "Folk-Art Favorites" by Joined at the Hip. Thank you, Mary, for the gift of this wonderful book. It is chock full of quilts and projects I would love to make.
I completed the star quilt top. The last I had shown you, it still needed the borders completed. I was tired of sewing diamonds and set the quilt aside for a bit. I decided it was time to finish the top. There was no one home to help me display the quilt top for a better picture. I just spread out what I could on the glider on the lanai.
These are the Snap It bags. They have two pieces of a wide metal measuring tape in the top edges. When you open the bag, it will snap back closed. I made the one on the left from my Liberty Garden fabrics. My friend, Vicky, made the one on the right. I brought hers home with me to serge the side seams.
The stitcheries don't show up well on my design wall but here is what I have done so far. There are three more blocks to embroider. I am working on #10. The patterns are from "The Seasons Quilt Collection" by Primitive Stitches. I had thought I would use the twist and turn method of setting the blocks but wanted to use fabric from my stash. The polka dot fabric said it wanted to be used and I only had 1/2 yard of it. So a straight set it is. I have another green fabric for the outer border that is a bit different than what you normally see in my stash. More on that later. I used fabric from my stash for all of these projects I am sharing with you today.
I have more to share with you but I will save it for another post. I am off to play. Stop back soon. I love to have you visit.
