Finishing

Finishing up some small pieces for the fall Mennonite Auction. One more to get a label but will need to wait. Getting ready to go to Madeline Island and wanted these done before I dive into a new medium class I am taking, "Boro Transformed". Very excited as we will also be doing some indigo dying. Oh, yippee!!

Estate Finds

My niece sent me a link to a recent estate sale and I was able to obtain all of these older fabrics. I finally finished cleaning and ironing. Now ready for projects. There were a few nice pieces that I couldn't save as they were so faded in various areas which was disappointing, but happy with what I did manage to keep. Also purchased some feed sacks and really old child's lace cotton petticoats. Not sure what I will do with those. Enjoying my stack.

Genie Wreath

Finally finished the Genie in a Bottle variation. So will call this Genie Wreath. Not sure if I will make more and do a 4 block quilt or keep it simple as one. In due time.

The Color Red

I never thought I would like the color red as much as I do today. Blue or green were always my go to colors. Still are in this new house we are building. Smoky blue with creamy cupboards. Oh, but to cook in a kitchen again. Soon. In the meantime I realized I haven't posted anything in awhile so found this little gem I once made. The thing is I can't remember how I did it. But I sure do love how it turned out. Hope you like it too. The centers are my original red work drawings.

Genie in a Bottle



Working on some more applique' and hand quilting. This one is 16.5"x18". Not sure where I found the leaf motif. I think it was wallpaper. I want to try and put that in a four block arrangement.

Alex's Quilt


I am hoping this is the last graduation for awhile. Had a lot of fun creating this "guitar" quilt for my nephew, Alex. 
Favorite color blue, so used batiks and a splash of red.

Jillian's Butterflies






My great niece drew this cute little butterfly and I transferred it to a quilt design. Reverse applique was used on the butterflies. Hand quilted with some embroidery details.
