REMINISCING OVER PAST QUILTS MADE

Hi Stampers and Stitchers,

I started keeping a journal that I recently purchased in a quilt store. I thought it looked like fun and I've only made a few quilts in the past that I needed to enter. So here they are!!

Please ask me if you have any questions. The first one is a wall hanger, the second is a table runner, and the third is a jar quilt of my own design that I made for my daughter. She is 27 yo and still enjoys it.

Enjoy!!

HALLOWEEN TABLE RUNNER WITH ROW BY ROW EXPERIENCE

Hi Stampers and Stitchers,

I've been finishing up this table runner for the past couple of weeks. Was going to try my hand at meandering and I just got too busy with the grand babies so I had my friend pop in and do it for me.
She did a wonderful job!

This table runner is a row by row experience pattern from California.

I had another friend tell me of this website tutorial. I'll let the tutorial explain this for me. :-)

It worked out pretty well I think, don't you?

Please ask me any questions that you may have. Enjoy!

Attic Window Eye I Spy for a Friend's Grand Daughter

Hi Stampers and Stitchers,

I forgot to mention a couple of quilts I had been working on.

The attic window was fairly easy and I like to challenge myself to something new. So making an eye spy quilt like this was very exciting.

Then my good ole cherry picnic quilt is getting finished also. I've got the vines on it and I used this stuff called http://www.jillilystudio.com/shop/Notions/p/AppliGlue.htm. This stuff was amazing!!
Don't let the bias vines scare you.  I watched this youtube video for cutting a yard of fabric and I was able to get my 32" pieces I needed and then all the rest. Of course I have the leaves on it and they are ready to be satin stitched down.

If you have any questions, please ask me.

Also, I just got my SU order in. I'm ready to start making holiday cards.  I can hardly wait!

Enjoy!

Grand Daughters Eye Spy Quilt

Hi Stampers and Stitchers

This is my granddaughters eye spy quilt. It turned out really cute. I used 4 1/2"  fussy cut blocks. There are 88 images in this quilt. She is a big Elmo fan so this will go over good.

Please ask me any questions and this next round I hope to bring you my holiday cards!

Enjoy!
