It's been a few months since my last blog and I have had a few finishes. I want to start with a quilt I did for my friends daughter, Lucia. It is the blue & pink half square diamond quilt. With this quilt instead of using batting I used a fleece backing, also instead of quilting it I tied it. I did close to three hundred ties. It was worth the time I put into it when I saw the Lucia's face, when she saw it.
Last month, for Dragon Day at the kids school, was Hippie Day. So my friend Shelley and myself made tie dye shirts for the kids. I really like how they came out.
I made a Halloween wall hanging for my house last week. I made the backing big enough to make a self binding quilt. Everything you see around the panel is the backing folded over to the front.
The kids really enjoy looking at it and coming up with stories about it.
And last but not least is a picture of my daughter sleeping with one of her quilts. It makes me happy to see my children using and enjoying the quilts I make, with love, for them.
Till next time, have fun sewing!
