I like to leave little messages in the quilt lines...and there are always a few hearts sprinkled in...!
Just have a few photos to share of the "shabby chic" quilt for the newlyweds.
The quilting part has begun. No machine mess ups so far, I'm so glad to report that!! Yes there have been some human error, I'm the human...but I am smiling anyway.
Tell me, would you be a bit unnerved to see your squares falling off while you had a quilt top on the frame?
It does give you a second thought, but so far, so good....
We participated in the Southern California Quilt Run again this year, driving around three different days.
~Jeanne, Pokey, Beth and Ginny~
~quilt run friends at Stars and Scraps in Corona, California~
Here is the group I chauffeured around last Thursday, when we drove about 200 miles for 7 stores and home again. Needless to say, we had a grand time!
The Temecula Quilt Company is one of our favorites, too. This time, Sheryl prepared little pincushion directions and pieces for us to make. Beth and I sat down and sewed them together Friday night.
Paper piecing is about the only way I can make
such tiny pieces turn out accurate, lol
Tonight, I'm planning to share how to make a chicken pincushionwith the girls at quilting class, and also a bit on raw edge applique.
Seems me gluing my pieces into place with Elmer's Washable School Glue caused a few eyebrows to raise (and question my methods,lol)! But I've proven this method of gluing before with successful results.
I'm glad to oblige.
The plaid ticker tape has been used on my table for 2 years now.
In our family news, please say a prayer for my Larry. He has a procedure tomorrow, but he is still having tummy troubles. I'm hoping to see him start improving in his health issues!
