|Pulling fabrics and cutting letters|
|Got to use up the large butterflies. Two more rows to sew letters on and this one is done!!!|
I don't want to post the rest of the words in case I don't get around to doing them. I did bring everything home to work on this evening. Of course Carl came home tonight so sewing time is if-fy
|Here it is laid over the bed with the corners pulled up to show off the applique flowers.|
|I should name this one kitchen sink b/c I have used so many left overs. It is so much prettier in person!|
|Picture of top right corner. I had fun trying to make the butterflies disappear. It was hard but I stuck to a low contrast with bold fabrics and I truly love the outcome.|
I did NOT quilt anything again today. I did get to visit with a favorite Niece, Abby from Cal. who is getting married this Saturday. I am not attending but did shop for a new wardrobe just in case. I told her I could get a few glammer shots of myself and she could photo shop them into the wedding party pictures. We also discussed a wedding quilt. I am several months behind but will pull the fabric I have in mind for hers. My father-in-law (her Grandfather) would bring me back fabric from his trips to India. I have made each of TaTa's grand-kids a wedding quilt from that stash. Abby said she really likes purples so I will have to dig deep to see if I have any left. I think the niece who got married last year go the last purple yardage.
To make the story more fun--Moya stopped by to visit and brought me 2 purple tops she didn't want. We shopped my stash for border fabrics and found yardage of a purple that my mother-in law had sewn a dress out of. A big smile knowing I can now make two quilts for Abby that have memories of her grandparents.
|I like this green w/purple flowers but may change my mind. I want to get the borders on before I decided it needs to be much bigger. DIL, Kelly loves purples too so this might end up at her house on a couch someday.|
|This is the one for Abby, the floral yardage is left over from Ama's sewing days. Another couch size snuggle under as soon as I make myself start pinning them in.|
