Here's a little collage of APRIL things I've made
OOPSIE, just noticed picasa (
or me) picked the same picture of the bubble gum blocks twice.
Yesterday I did finished stuffing and sewing closed 3 owls for the craft show, don't they look like they were JUST talking about me and then when I snapped a picture, they look innocently away?? hmm :-)
Then I decided to work on this blue strip quilt top, the black fabric for the sashing and border is actually a small dot, close up you can see the seams on the border, but it's not too bad.
After it was all done, I noticed that one of the rows are slight off from the row below it, oh well! it's not bad and I'm not fixing it, this will most likely be a donation quilt or a giveaway quilt, so I don't really care, is that bad?
It turned out to be a nice size 49" x 63" so a nice snuggle or lap quilt.
