Today is Worldwide Quilting day!! Time to celebrate our art!
I hope you can set aside some time to do a bit of quilting or sewing…
even fondling a bit of your stash would count!!
Or even some fabric retail therapy!! Yay!!
I normally don’t get much sewing done now over the weekends as when everyone is home, I prefer to do things with them rather than be in my sewing room all day.
However, my peeps are all out and about today, so as soon as I get this written and posted, I can get back to my latest project!! Curious?
Well, when we moved into this house last August, I hung my poppies quilt up over the fireplace mantle, and it was a perfect fit for the space!
So, I’ve been making other quilts exactly that sixe, to hang there as the seasons of the year progress…
a fall one-
a Christmas one-
a winter one-
and now I’m working on a spring one!!
I’ve got the blocks made and sewn onto the background…the flower pots made and fused on…
and Thursday and Friday I selected the flower and plant fabrics from my stash..
got them laid out on the pots…
and finally fused on!
Now I’m quilting it as I stitch around the petals, stems and leaves.
I’ve finished quilting the moss roses, the tulips and the berry grass pots! And am quilting the pots and background areas equally densely!
I’ve added some ladybugs, a snail and a frog!
Stay tuned!! More pix to come!
