Customer quilt and Bible BOW and fabric purchases

The end of last week and saturday I finished quilting two customer quilts
This one I think was made out of jelly rolls! love the design.
I "just" meandered all over it with "mother goose" thread color.

Then I quilted this fast and easy baby quilt, a customer mailed me this quilt.

I quilted loopy funky flowers and leaves all over it.

guess who's starting to smile!? :-)
these close up pics always end up looking kind of silly but they are fun.

Here she is in a denim dress.

Today I started my new leaders and enders project.
(not an easy and fast one) drunkard's path blocks!
I used my Go! cutter to cut these out, I thought I ironed and starched them enough, but one set got cut crooked so I have to fix that when I sew them together.
This is the BOW Women of the bible block
I'm making my blocks 8" when done.
This is SARAH!
I picked the blue dots for how God promised the israelites they would be numerous like the stars.
Then I also picked the flowers as a symbol of growing- having children.
And the orange reminded me of the tents they lived in and sand color- not really sand color, but you get my point.

I also wanted to share a Facebook group I joined recently for fabric purchases.
Here is Ozark fabrics, started by Tonya.
She's been getting great fabric deals- so hard to resist not buying EVERYTHING!
well, her husband was in the hospital and now medical bills are mounting and he's out of personal days, so I'm promoting the group to help them out.
Go join the group and have a look!
And tell Tonya I sent you :-)

Don't you love those first smiles? We work so hard to get one, but they are worth every bit of it. She is cute as a button.

Your DP enders and leaders is a great idea. The quilts are lovely too.

Beautiful quilts and gorgeous baby! What a cutie she is!!!

Love you WOB block and the reasons. Nice work.

Danie said...

I love that first quilt the pattern is amazing. I do wonder what color is "mother goose" it almost appears to be an off-white, is that correct? I serious love the name and want to put it to a color lol.

Sara Richardson said...

I love the star. Great color combo!

Debbie said...
