I just realized that it's been a while since I posted on my blog! I have been spending less time browsing as well because I have been keeping pretty busy on quilting projects.
This block is the September BOM from Barbara Brackman's Civil War blog. I haven't done the August one yet. Both of these have Y-seams, which are not my favorite. I tried to make mine more like the one Becky Brown made (see Barbara's post). Also, my friend/neighbor and I have signed up for a craft show in November and I'm working on some projects for that.
In case you didn't know, I love going to garage sales and thrift stores. I look for fabric and projects that I can use and/or sell from my Etsy shop.
The quilt show that I went to in Salem, OR had a sale section of fabrics, panels, etc. that members of the group donated. There were some great deals! Below is a small panel of a dalmatian dog along with some pieces of fabrics to finish it. I put some of them together, but now I'm thinking of making it into a small quilt. The top and bottom border pieces aren't sewn on yet and I don't have any more of that fabric. Right now it measures about 22" x 29". I was thinking about making a wall hanging, but if I make it into a baby or child's quilt I would need to enlarge it. Any suggestions?
This Santa place mat/table topper or Santa's cookie and milk mat, was also found at the quilt show. It was layered and partially quilted. I just added some more quilting and finished it.
I found this rabbit at a thrift shop and she needed a dress. The package included a pattern for a dress and I had this fabric on hand. I made the apron out of a vintage napkin.
I love the old crocheted corner on the napkin.
This table runner was purchased at an estate sale and it was all layered but not quilted yet. I decided to finish it off and hope to sell it at the craft show. It looks like a mardi gras design.
This is some of what I have been doing. The weather has turned rainy, so it was a good time to spend inside sewing.
