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.

Jumping in - feet first

I h ave decided I want to try my hand at an art quilt.  I have spent much time studying how this craft is done and have chosen to use this picture of my feet as my first project.

Here we go, getting started.  Those are my glasses, I just set them there while I snapped the picture.  I guess I thought it was a good spot to place them so I could find them when I resumed this project.

Here is where I ended at Friday night.  Pretty good so far.

Couldn't sleep Friday night so I got up and did some more work.  Finally went to bed with this being my ending spot.

Some Saturday progress.
This is where I ended on Sunday.  Looking at the picture it looks like I need a toe nail on the next to last toe left foot.  This toe nail does not show in the photo but I don't think it looks right without.
Final product so far.  The jeans are the paper pattern folded onto the fabric to get the full effect.  I will work on the jeans on another day. 

Well that is my progress so far.  Let me know what you think.

God Bless
