MADELINE, UNCLE SAM, & SEASONS STITCHERIES

Three finishes.  I am on a roll!

The first is a stitchery project called "Seasons" by Primitive Stitches.  Easy stitching.  And you can order a pattern set that was designed with Canadians in mind.

I very recently pieced "Madeline", a Schnibble pattern.  I took time to quilt and bind it.  It will be rolled and stored on end in an old wood box with some other small quilts.

The third finish is "Uncle Sam".  I pieced him last fall.  I decided it was time to quilt and bind the piece so I would have it to display this summer.  He has long legs.  The angle I took the picture makes them look even longer.  He reminds me of a 4th of July parade with Uncle Sam on stilts walking the parade route.  I used a Country Threads pattern.  On their website, it says it is a rotary cut only quilt but it does have those applique stars and the beard.  I fused them on and then stitched by machine around the edges.

Back to stitching!

  2. 3 finishes... that's wonderful. The border that you put on the embroidery quilt really makes everything pop. I love it. And, of course, once more, if you decide not to keep the schnibbles quilt I promise to take good care of it - grin!
