Mar.4 blocks and tops and still some unfinished projects..

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

      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.:)

    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? 🙂

      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!
