Miss Stacy's free pattern from the Summerthyme blog hop she recently sponsored was another project that insisted on being finished. What can I say--I listen to my projects. : )
I found the typewriter key buttons that Stacy used on her pillow at the local Jo~Ann, but I decided to stitch the phrase on it instead. The whole time I was stitching I was also singing the song.
(Log Cabin Quilter blog) has been making from Miss Stacy's patterns, I got my inspiration to border it and put that feather stitch around it that Miss Stacy likes to use. I had never done the feather stitch before I took that workshop from her back in January. I was afraid of it then, but I do enjoy it now.
Last time I showed you this 16" block made by Michelle C. (Michelle's Quilts and Stuff blog) that I sliced up.
Soon it will be stitched up into this 11 1/2" mini quilt.
Every bit of this was cut from that large block, and I even have some leftover pieces.I do have some of that red fabric in my stash, so maybe I will border it with red and bind it in navy.
So much red/white/blue in my sewing room lately. Even my leader/enders pinwheels have been pretty much in that color scheme (with a little black thrown in for depth).
But I do work with other colors, too.
The mini broken dishes quilt I began when I was testing the Itty Bitty Eights rulers is now hanging in my yardstick gallery. Over the weekend I put up another yardstick and two more rulers in the gallery (which is in the very short hallway outside my sewing room). I thought DH would say something about how the quilts would soon overtake the house, but after two days and no comments I finally asked him about it. He hadn't even noticed. I think I will start hanging the quilts everywhere. Oh, wait--I already have.
Another nature shot--I just had to share this rainbow from last Sunday. The family gathered on the deck to Oooo and Ahhh. I ran out in the rain to get shots without telephone lines in them.
Until next time,
