I finished my first H2H quilt. Ready to take to Sarah to be shipped to Judi at Green Fairy Quilts
Pieced the back from the scraps left over.
(My quilt holder upper is still in bed, so I had to do the best I could)
This is my second H2H quilt. Ready to send. The back has a little piecing to it, but I failed to take a picture. You will see in awhile that even though my quilt holder was asleep I did have some help.
Trip Around the World is one of my quick go to patterns. Always turns out great.
Remember the T-shirts I showed several months ago? Well it has been waiting for signature blocks. The lady I am making it for can not get all of the signatures back, so we decided to proceed without them. I have the flimsy finished and will work on the back.
Then I have a friend, Dana, who is getting married in August. Dana has helped me for years with the Down Syndrome Buddy Walk. I made her and her future hubby a Trip Around the World. You can see my early morning helper, (SpongeBob pj's and all) he's just not tall enough to hold them up.
Here's my other assistant. I had way too much help during this photo shoot.
This is the quilt I made for my friend who lost his father (using his father's shirts). I always have a hard time coming up with names for my quilts, I think this one will simply be "My Daddy's Shirts". You can read about it more on yesterdays post. The center star represents his father, the log cabin center is for mother, home (they all live within a 1/4 mile of each other) and love. The four corner stars represents the four children with the father inside each. The eight pinwheels represents the grandchildren (spin offs of his children, a little humor there). Marita at The Quilter's Path helped with the layout. I can't wait to finish it and have it ready to give to him on Monday. There's just one thing....
Don't be stupid like me and have a Sharpie close to a quilt. I dropped the Sharpie and look what happened. Yeah, it marked the quilt. Now me and Mr. Rippy don't like each other very much, so I am trying to come up with a solution that doesn't get Mr. Rippy involved. Any suggestions? And the blue marks will disappear, I was playing around, trying to decide how to quilt it and do not like the results.
I also quilted a quilt for the church ladies to give to Sarah. I was in such a hurry to get finished I did not get a picture of it but if you hop over to Sarah's blog http://confessionsofafabricaddict.blogspot.com and see what everyone else has been working on she has a picture. I was so honored to have had a small part in making her quilt.
Well, besides all of this, I have been on vacation this week
and have been taking my little assistant to the
pool every day. Today I have to clean house
and wash clothes so that I can go to a quilt show
tomorrow. Not a bad deal if
you ask me.
I love comments and I read every one,
but sometimes I can not
respond (still don't know why).
So if I don't respond, please know that I have read yours
and appreciate each one.
