I'm getting my quilting groove back!
Sonja is sleeping in her swing. :-)
I was looking at my "project" shelf and decided that I wanted to stuff this fall pillow I made last fall ( was supposed to be a runner, made from scraps but the 2nd block was crooked, so I just kept one and made a pillow) I had looked online for a real pillow to put inside but they are $$ plus here I didn't make it a standard size anyways. Last month I did order a box of fiber fill from JoAnn's - ECO friendly too. So I stuffed this pillow and sewed it closed.
Now call me nuts, but I've also planned a few quilts!
a blogger friend- Tonya showed a link to a FB group where she sells fabrics here and OH! it's dangerous there, the fabrics are awesome and CHEAP!!
so here's two quilts I've planned with fabrics that I already bought from her.
BOXES! with a Riley Blake collection.
I also have the pattern for sale in my craftsy store here
And this quilt with another Riley Blake collection.
Now, here's another quilt that will be ongoing!
I've talked about it before, it's a "women of the bible" Block of the week quilt!
You can sign up and buy the pattern here, we're about to start soon!
The original idea online has bright colors and black backgrounds.
Here's a line of fabric from connecting threads that I want to use and then use a white background.
I bought a FQ bundle plus several more FQs in coordinating colors, can't wait to get started now!
I have also been doing a little more of the hidden Forest applique, but didn't take a picture!
And today, I finished most of a border for McCall's #3 quilt- can't show pictures of that either
