I got a package in the mail saturday...
RED SNAPPERS!! only fellow quilters would be thrilled like me over red plastic tubing :-)
I decided to follow the video and long arm the casing/ sleeve on the leaders.
But they are ON and work great :-)
Before I put the snappers on, I finished Sonja's carseat mini tumbler quilt, it looks great.
I just quilted a curve from corner to curner on all the blocks and copied that on the border as well
While I pieced the tumbler quilt I finished all the drunkard's path blocks, but I don't know if it's flimsy fabric, the cutting or ironing, but the blocks are kind of wonky!
so I decided to trim them even more wonky, I layered 3 DP blocks randomly and used my 6 1/2" ruler and trimmed down to that and randomly piled them all together too, so when I sew the blocks together, they are ALSO very random... maybe it'll look great, maybe it will look like junk, we'll see!
This is the next women of the bible BOW = Lot's wife.
I knew the story about how they ran away and she turned to look back and then turned into a pillar of salt! I picked the closest white fabric in this CT collection that looked like specks of salt and found a pale one and one a little brighter, then I picked blues- I don't know why, I just liked them
The floral and check I also just thought looked good with it :-)
again my block is 8 1/2" (8" when done)
Today, after I installed the red snappers, I quilted a customer's two baby "I spy" quilts, it was fun to figure out how to load a quilt this new way
and I decided on the blue one, that BASTING is the way to go, I had tried it a long time ago and didn't like it, but tried it this time and it was easy and looked great, so I'm doing that from now on!
Did you miss seeing a picture of PEANUT? now that a certain little princess is stealing the limelight?
This little green princess, for once in GREEN :-) the little green hoodie was so cute, but no sleeves to I put a white onesie under it, then she looked like a little hip hop chick! LOL
recently she found the birds and bugs that spin around above her head and play music, fascinating!
