PROJECT UPDATE

Wedding quilt is mailed - and is supposed to be delivered today.

Log cabin quilt being basted


Notice the vintage Tupperware sugar bowl that I use for holding safety pins.


Quilting started.  I'm using caramel Essential Pro polyester thread from ConnectingThreads.com for the top thread and turkey red thread for the back.


Table runner bound and listed in my Etsy shop.


3 dresses finished to be donated to Lori who is taking them to Bolivia on a mission trip.


Pocket embellishments.


I have a new favorite place to photograph items - on the fence just outside our patio door.  It has to be done in the morning before the sun is so bright though.  We are almost finished painting the fence - which is very long.  The area behind the shed is mainly what is left to be painted.  Woo Hoo!

Your Log Cabin quilt is gorgeous! Makes me want to make another one too! I've been using Essential Pro for piecing, but hadn't thought of quilting with it; I'll have to try that too. The table runner probably won't be in your Etsy shop very long; someone is sure to want that beauty. The little dresses are adorable, and your fence does make a great place for pictures. Now, take a 15 minute break, and then get back to quilting! ---"Love"

I love how you're quilting the log cabin quilt. Haven't tried hook feathers yet but hope to soon. They look so pretty and airy and the quilt has great loft.

The feathers on your log cabin look wonderful!

Your log cabin quilt is gorgeous, love all the fabrics! The dresses are darling, some little girls will be thrilled with them. I just got home from our trip to help my step daughter after her surgery. She is doing well and it was so much fun playing with the baby. I took my machine in for service while I was gone and it is home and ready to sew. So am I! ! !

Those lovely quilted feathers are looking marvellous. That table runner will be snapped up for sure and the little girls who receive these dresses will be as pleased as punch.

your Log Cabin quilt looks really wonderful

Karen said...

Do you have a problem with the red thread pulling to the top? I hesitate to use two different colors because I have had that problem even with adjusting tension.

I just love your Lob Cabin quilt and your quilting is looking fabulous! I got some fabric and need to get my dresses sewn for Lori. I really like the ones you have done!

The log cabin is so beautiful and your feathers are fantastic. Your new place for photos is a great one for sure. The table runner is a beauty. Love the cute dresses. I have made several with my Bee. One of the memeber's daughter has been on medical missions to Haiti. I think I made about 10 or 12 each trip. (2 trips).
