the last one was made with denim with a crazy patch machine stitched on top.

image

this one was a special one, my special needs daughter picked out the fabric that she liked from my stash,then I made it up for her. She loves and uses it all the time.

Now Im working on some Rag rugs, will post later on them.

Happy sewing until then. 🙂

Aug. 14th, Rag quilts

I had this pile of batting that was getting in my way.

image

i love making rag quilts from left over batting. It is such a fun way to use that left over batting from other quilts.

Here is one that I have to clip the edges yet…

image

and the back..

image

and one I’m still sewing,

image

I enjoy clipping these in the evening when the family is gathered in the family room,drinking coffee or just telling of today’s happenings..and sometimes just plain cutting up!:)

I have the painted bird top just about finished,just need to add a border,Haven’t decided how I want to do it.

What has snuggles been up too… Sleeping on fabric that I was trying to iron.

And enjoying the quilt hanging off the side of the table..

update on challenge post-Aug 5th

This is how I received the blocks. 

image

I took the blocks out of the yellow stripping.

image

Ironed then recut blocks to square them evenly. I don’t want to throw the stripping away but add it in  the quilt without overpowering the quilt with the yellow. I think I like this pattern ..

image

now to cut and sew ….

one other picture, I finish sewing the little penguin top.

have a lovely day,Deb

A challenge-Aug.1st

Earlier this year I was given some blocks to do something with,for the lady was going to just throw them away,but my mom who happened to overhear that “throw out” part quickly told the lady to give me a try before throwing them out!Oh the faith that a Mom has at times. 🙂 Here are some pictures of the quilt.

the first picture is of the block on the cutting broad,where I decide this was the color combo. the second ,finished top.

image  image

the green doesn’t show up as greenie as it was. It may have been a 70’s green.

I was happy with the quilt top and so was the lady.

Now I have some more blocks that give the same challenge…

The painted blocks are very pretty ,but once again I’m working with a orangish-yellow fabric. I tried to get a true color of the fabric but could not.

Until later… Deb
