There’s so many things you can do with a machine and fabric, that I have a problem with keeping at one project at a time….
Here is the Fire hosta island top , I still have the one side to finishe up,I have all the difficult parts done.
Did this dress for my great niece. She was needing some school dresses. I finished up two for her.
This is a queen size top that I put together on my trip. It will be tied and given to a young couple that are to be married in April. They will be livening in Montana,so I will put heavier batting in it than what I would for hand quilting.
Once again the scrap box was fussing that it was sitting on the shelf for too long! These melons are fun to make, and before I knew it,I had made a stack of them. I really like doing the stitching around them. I had to make a starch out of Epsom salt to stiffen the bottom fabric for it wanted to ripple at the corners way too much. And I didn’t have enough regular starch..Works great, This is a 12.5 ” block.
Now back to sewing, Deb
Oh my goodness–that first photo, of the fire hosta, is amazing! Is that paper pieced? It must be right?
You’re right ,most of it is paper pieced. It will made a nice sized quilt at 100″ by 100″. Probably take me two years to hand quilt it.:)
I am in awe of how many projects you have going. Like KerryCan I was absolutely awed by the Fire Hosta Island top. It is beautiful.
Sheryl, thank you! I really don’t know if I could ever stick to one project… When I get tired of one I go to another. Is that called attention deficit? 🙂
Love the strip pieced melons and the tip about Epsom salts. I often starch my fabrics for machine piecing so will give it a try. Thank you.
Thank you! I got a little sidetracked from that project for a bit. After I finished up the top I’m working on now I want to get back to the melons! Hope the Epsom salt work ,for it sure did for me, thanks to Internet. Have a lovely evening!
