Pin box!!! Mine is half empty or half full, however you want to look at it. For years I have been saying I need to sort out my pins and get new one. Some have no point left, some no longer sharp But I continued to put it off and figured I'll do it another day. My tip: Make a bargello quilt. I have been sewing and pinning bargello strips together all day. I realized how many pins I would go through to complete this project. So I grabbed my pin box and bowl and used each pin ONCE. If it was no good I threw it out. I how have a half empty (or half full) box of pins. If anyone knows of a DEAL on good straight pins-hook me up!
Side tracked myself. Last night I started playing with some jelly roll strips that I had left from a customers project. I decided to see what it would look like as a bargello. Well it is turing out rather nice. I had 20 strips and cutting them in to different strips, I think the whole thing sewn together will probably measure 25 x 30. How do I get myself into these messes. Now I have to find more fabric to build on what I have started!!!! I love my life-such a challange!!!!
Finished my quilt top today-I love it. It was easy to do and gives a very impressive appearance. it will be a very good beginner quilt to teach or sew. Now to get the backing and quilt it. I used all of 12 fat quarters except enough to make a label for the back and had a 2 inch by 4 inch piece as scrap!!!!!!!! Also using the technique on an applique wallhanging I am developing. Will soon have the instuctions, typed, printed, copyrighted and post on the website for sale for both patterns.
$85.00 72x17 inches. This is a close up of a blue floral French Braid. All 100% cottons easy to take care of and would look great on a table or buffet or location of your choice.
Started cutting out a quilt design I developed. I laid away at night thinking of measurements and techniques and how to use the most of a fat quarter with out waste-I HATE WASTE!!! Here's hoping that it turns out. I want to have it copyrighted and sell it. Practicing it with some material from my stash, but if I like the pattern, I have fabric that will be a beautiful quilt when its done and look great on the pattern instruction. Ladies will love the flowers. Keep you posted. By the way, this practice quilt is Christmas fabric.
$68.00 for all Five. Next items up on the website. Hope you like them. It is a set of 5 floral doilies. Check out the website to see them. They are all five different shaped and sizes with pink and white stripe binding. Please take a look.
I delivered an order for a table runner today. Had enough fabric, she provided to make two, so I did. Just enjoyed playing with the fabrics. My customer had an embroidered piece that she wanted added to a runner, so I designed the red one for around it. I think they turned out nice, I hope the customer is please with them too. They are a gift for someone.
Please feel free to add your comments and suggests. I hope we can keep each other in STITCHES!!!!!
