Jan,11th..New York Beauty

This week I have been busy working on a New York Beauty. It is to go to My Mom’s sewing circle to be hand quilted. It will then be auctioned off for a school fund raiser .

I am paper piecing the points in the block and in the border. I find it fun to paper piece. I took classes off of Craftsy that really helped me out. I took two classes,one of Carol Daok,and the other from Peggy Martin. They are both very good teachers with fun projects.This is one of Peggy’s patterns.

At first I was going to do all blocks light on the outside of points ,but then I lost my distinctive corner. I used a black back ground piece

It is fun watching a quilt top starting to show its design.

The first outside border I am going to use the black with the little blue circles. It made the center pop more than the black marbled.

the center piece is finished ready for the borders.

My Camellia’s are blooming. They are a lovely flower!!

Jan.4th,2015.. a quilt using vintage keep sakes

I was given a pillowcase of doilies ,ties,table runners and and pillowcases along with some old dresses. The dear lady wanted these things made into a quilt for her sister’s birthday.They were things from their Grandmother and Mama. I told her, I sure would try.

So for several days the dining room table was a mess, the family ate in the family room.{so glad the family puts up with my messes!}

Here is what I did.I sure hope the sister is happy with it!

I also finished up 13 pillows for christmas gifts for a customer made from shirts.I wasn’t able to get pictures of them all for time ran out on me ,and she needed to get some in the mail so they would arrive before Christmas.

They were so fun to make !!

Now I’m working on a project for my Mama’s sewing circle. It is a New York Beauty.I have one block finished.
