As I was spending some time viewing some pictures, I came across some older pictures that I thought I’d share. Sometimes, I surprise myself. This was a QFC quilt that I quilted. I believe the maker was Mickie M. I remember wanting to do a bit extra around the embroidery and decided to ‘echo’
I was really happy with the feathered wreaths I had done on this one – I don’t do those enough and really need to work on them so I feel more comfortable when I do:
This was quilt made for a QFC member who was undergoing treatment for brain cancer. Members sent in angel blocks that I then assembled into a quilt. The angels on the back were larger then average and part of an entire set. They worked out well on the back.
I was not sure how I was going to quilt this one, so I just jumped in and started and once I did, it just worked. Sometimes I believe I ‘over think’ what needs to happen with the quilts:
So there are some pictures from “back in time”.
I have finished the large Dresden Plate top and it will be going on the frame (hopefully) next week. I am working on my g-sons’ Halloween costumes. One almost completed and hope to get the other one finished in the next couple of days. Then it’s on to Christmas sewing. I want to finish my Christmas quilt that I started last year and make a couple stuffed dolls. OH – I have to add this in. I was looking at patterns on line, McCalls, Simplicity – the common pattern companies – and I was very surprised how few stuffed doll / toy patterns were available. There are TONS of clothes patterns for the 18” dolls – and yes I know how popular they are, I bought a couple as Christmas gifts last year – but what about the younger kids??? Thanks goodness I have saved my stuffed doll patterns. One pattern I’m missing, though, is my Care Bears pattern.. it will show up eventually, I just need to look in the right place
Until next time,
