6 more completed

My most recent completed quits.  I am busy using up my fabric.  All of these patterns have been found free on the internet.  I can not remember where or the names of the quilts.  Some from Moda Bake Shop and others from different fabric websites, such as Michael Miller.  The baseball quilt is from Easy Quilts, winter 2012.  Most likely all will be donated at the end of the year.







 This watermelon quilt is a mystery quilt I did through a Facebook quilting page.  I plan to use it as a tablecloth for our patio table.  I put pockets on the corner when I did the binding and will put a hole in the middle of the umbrella to fit through.  Most likely use a buttonhole stitch around the edge or maybe zig-zag.





Hope you enjoyed seeing these quilts.  I am working on finishing up a Hunters Star I started last year.
Hope your year has been blessed so far. May God continue to bless you.

Until next post

All good until..........

It was going real good until I was almost finished with the quilting then I realized I had a block turned the wrong direction.  This is the second quilt I made with this pattern and I was so excited to quilt this one.  I had decided to work on my freehand feathers and ruler work.  Humming along then I run into the problem of a turned block.  Not going to fix it,  I would have had to take the quilt off the quilting machine, turn the block and reload.  The quilt was finished as is and will go to someone who will love it imperfections and all.

I pray your day is blessed and until next post, May God Bless you all.

Selfie

I made a selfie.  I took this picture of myself a few years ago while camping.  I did a black/white picture of the photo then made the selfie.  I did the orange head band for a splash of color.  I was originally wearing a blue bandanna for a head band.

Until next time, may God bless you.

Finished

"Jumping in feet first" finished.  I learned a lot during this process and already have another idea in mind.  My next project is going to be black and white with a little color.

I can not say I am completely happy with the outcome but I am happy enough to move on.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week-end.  We are hot hot hot in the Pacific Northwest.  I know that is not the same everywhere.  Make the most of the days you have.  Until I post again, May God Bless you and yours.

Getting ready

Another completed quilt.  I made this while vising my mom a few weeks ago.  I had the body done but did the borders and quilting after I got home.  I am really not a Steelers fan but this fabric was given to me so I made a quilt with it.  I will donate and someone will love it. 

Have a blessed day and God Bless

Onto thread painting

My feet are completed, that is the construction of the them. Now onto the tread painting. I am a bit apprehensive about that.  I have not done anything like this and with all the work I have done so far I hate to mess is up now.  I will just jump in " feet first". 

Have a safe and Happy Independence Day.

Not seeing double

 Last week end I was with my mother.  When I visit her I take some sewing projects to work on.  I took my weed whacker blocks I had made to put together into a top.  Well guess what I had twice as many as I needed. I did not want to make one bigger quilt with some left over blocks to I made two quilts. As you can see I made a mistake on one of them with block placement and left it that way.(I kinda like it).
I will donate these two quilts to charity.  I actually made three tops but have one left to put borders on and quilt. 

We are have hot hot weather this week end so I will work on the other quilt, finish it and hopefully get back to working on my art quilt.

I hope your week end is enjoyable and may God bless you.
