I married my high school sweetheart in 1989 and have two teenage children, a daughter 17 and son 14. My husband has 20 years in the Air Force. I started sewing and quilting after the birth of our daughter. I have made many baby quilts as gifts for friends and family. Also several wall-hangings and table toppers. I hope to soon also have bed-sized quilts to add to my collection of finished quilts. Have so many beautiful books of patterns and materials for works in the future, just not enough time to get it all done -- The life of a quilter i guess.
The challenge is out, lets see how many of us can join the wonderful new campaign called Stitching for Pink !!! Starts today until 30 October. Its gonna be so much fun with 10 projects to complete. Come on Embroiderers lets unite and join the fight against Breast Cancer !!!
Good morning Barb....I am just looking through this site as I am new here. I love your heart quilt in your name area. I will have to make one something like that for valentines day...it is really cute! Did you create that yourelf? I love red so it feels right to create one for me! Mary Pat
Glad to see your note. I will be glad to finish this up also so I can do some quilting a some fun things. I should be totally done tomorrow with the chair. I have skirting made and backing for bottom of chair covered so ready to put on but needed a break. I have a headache and back ache Will probable put them on later tonight. Just finished supper and have dishwasher going. .
I have the back of the chair done. Now I have to put the buttons on. We had to cover 11 first. Have them done so tomorrow I'll put the cording around the back after attaching the buttons and back on. Then I can get my foam and put seat back on. The cover is made so won't take long. Dad thinks it looks really nice. We'll see when I'm done. Have a good evening.
Barb, Thank you for the compliment on the scrappy sensations quilt. I struggled with it for years but I agree with you now that it is close to being completed. The fabrics worked well together as a scrap quilt...I can't take the credit though because it was a kit I bought. Sometimes I think it is good to stretch ourselves but that one really pushed me!
I love your sewing room. It is very nice. I would love to have a room like that. Have a great quilting day!
Barb, Hope the quilting is going well. We worked this morning and come home, had lunch then went out and cleaned out the raspberries. Dad pruned a few of the fruit trees. I'm getting ready to work on my angel for a little while.
Thank you for the compliment on my quilt. It was a challenge/square exchange that my small quilt group did two years ago. There's 8 of us in the group, and we exchanged a stack of 5" squares every month for a year. Many did blocks from the Nickel Quilt books. I happen to love stars.
One of our group is a long arm quilter. Fantastic woman. She used freehand feathers, a computerized pattern, and a template she designed just for this quilt. I had tears when she unfolded it and saw what she had created. Lana was given free reign to do what she felt would work best. She deserves the credit!
