Finally got the binding on Quilters Madder. Love this SAL quilt from Lori at Humble Quilts blog.
Mine finished at 17 1/2" x 14 1/2".
Mom's birthday gift of ornaments made from Dad's shirts were completed and delivered this week.
She was thrilled with them. As usual, they finished at 2 1/2".
When I received a pincushion from Randy at Barristers Block blog back in October she had wrapped it in 5 strips of fabric.
I immediately sewed 2 of the strips together and used them to make 4-patches as leader/enders. I knew I wanted to use the 4-patches for a little Valentine quilt, so when I needed a quick project this week for therapy, I grabbed the 4-patches and this quilt was born. I think I may call it "Sprinkled with Love." Inspired by the recent Temecula "Box of Chocolates". Finished at 7"x 9".
Progress on the little lovebird block by Karen at Log Cabin Quilter blog. I machine quilted around the block and then around the HST border.
Now I am working on hand quilting around the applique, and a cross-hatch pattern on the background.
Don't know that these little lovebirds will be ready for Valentine's Day, but it will be close. I need to set them aside for now and focus on polishing up my Sunday School lesson. : )
Our little farming community has been ravaged by severe winds and flooding this week. Prayers are with all my neighbors that are trying to stay above water, and pick up the pieces from the wind damage!
Until next time,
