I left the Mitered Boxes quilt top at my Mom’s today. I’m NOT going back for it any time soon! She’ll mail it to me if she gets to the Post Office.
It IS good to be home though.
Thanks for your input and opinions. It’s on hold now.
please. I am just about ready to add borders to my Mitered Boxes quilt, but can’t decide on which fabric to choose. I would REALLY appreciate your input!!!
Let’s go from left – to – right:
2. Deep aqua
?!?!?! Which will it be…YOU decide…
THANKS, and TGIF!!! Our weather is especially SPECTACULAR today. : )
It sure has been HOT and HUMID here!!! Our tomatoes and flowers seem to be LOVING the weather. Us? No so much. : / Here’s yesterday’s bounty from Mother Nature…
I am staying indoors! Today I have been doing mending and sewing repairs. I had a stack. Perhaps I can get to more FUN sewing before long. Enjoy your day and make a few stitches when you get the chance. ; )
This is one of those Shows that does not permit photos to be shown on the internet. : / However, I took some pix of quilts that were in other Shows that do allow photos to be posted. So…sew, here are some close-ups of Sieglinde’s Once Upon A Christmas Night quilt… You can see my original post from Houston here. Enjoy!
a week of Summer Sewing Camp, which included the Hershey Quilt Odyssey, looks like on the other side… ; ) Such FUN!!!
Sewing Camp with Momma Barb!!! : ) My Mother-In-Law is THE BEST!!! Truly. Several years ago I asked for Sewing Camp as a Christmas present. I was already learning how to quilt, but I knew absolutely nothing about garment construction, home dec sewing and such. You see, I didn’t grow up sewing. There was no sewing machine where I lived. No quilts either. But, I ALWAYS had an interest, a yearning and I longed to quilt…
Momma Barb obliged my request, and Summer Sewing Camp has since become an annual event. Sometimes we have guest appearances and others who join us for a spell. It’s ALWAYS fun filled and packed with all things girlie and sewing.
Summer Sewing Camp comes to a close with the Quilt Odyssey in Hershey, the sweetest place on Earth, don’t ‘cha know?! I am SO looking forward to this Show! First, it is a VERY nice Show filled with outstanding quilts sure to inspire and delight! Second, I am taking TWO classes with Sharon Schamber. Oh boy! I am super excited for the machine quilting class with Sharon on Saturday!!! I am hoping to spring board from this class into the fmq’ing of my Flower Pots quilt!!! (wish me LOTS of luck!?) Third, I will SEE Bonnie!!! I can’t wait to give her a big H-U-G for creating such a spectacular Mermaid for our home!!! Fourth, I might get to meet Kathie.
Whew! The week is packed!!! And, so am I!!! ; )
Here it is…a new blog dedicated to Kim McLean designs and applique! ; )
has moved to Friday. I’ve been wanting to ‘play’ with some different thread and machine settings. I made some quilt sandwiches a while back, but haven’t set aside time for FMQ practice and play until this morning! Here’s a look at my results…
I am having such a wonderful time stitching my Roseville Album! : )
Also, I have begun the development of a blog for this (and other Kim McLean) projects. Please be patient with me. I will keep you posted and let you know when it’s ready. Meanwhile, wish me luck, and feel free to pitch any ideas you might wish to share or have included…
Thanks for dropping by! Enjoy your day. And, Jenny, it is hard to imagine 15 C while we’ve been in the 90’s F for a couple weeks now?! Keep cool or stay warm, depending on where your little neck of the woods is!!!
notice my Snowbound BOM #7? I took a small break from my Roseville Album. Shhh! Don’t tell. ; )
It is SO terribly hot and humid here that just thinking of snow helps a little bit! Keep cool and enjoy your day. ; )
