Tanyel, those are GREAT pillows! You can make me a set next time you feel the urge to use the designs again - LOL!

What a cute rendition of the churn dash, Janet! Barbara should be pleased with it. Of course, the cardinal is the state bird of Ohio - just an FYI...

I'm whooped! Yaz the Taz was up all weekend. They left a little bit ago. I think I need a half dozen drinks! That little whirlwind kept all of us on our toes. She learned a new word at the sitter's and all weekend, everything was "POOP." OMG - what do you do with a kid like that?? Hug 'em, tickle them, wear their butts out! She was so tired Saturday afternoon, after I called her "Ornery," she walked into the bedroom, climbed into the pack & play and took a nap - Could have knocked me over with a feather! But - she made up for it today.Of course, her mom and I were trying to knock out some counted cross stitch ornaments for daughter's co-workers. She does beautiful work with the cross stitch but, she's not much into sewing. Got 'em all done except for some final hand sewing after stuffing them. I think I hear my bed calling...

I love those pillows Tanyel.  Where did you find the designs?

Comment by Tanyel B yesterday

Like Janet, I made a gift for a secret quilter. My recipient indicated liking pillows. I made her two holiday pillows. I love these ME designs. I had only stitched them out one other time and had been waiting for the perfect time to use them again.

Thanks Debbi.

Comment by Debbi Lamb/AZ yesterday

Janet - I love the gorgeous wall hanging! The fabrics are beautiful together. Great job!

Carol, I agree with Janet with regard to the hole in the quilt - IF the hole is not too large. Darning it would be the best way to fix it, if that is the case. Good luck with the repair!

Comment by Carol B of ET on Sunday

Janet, I have not seen the quilt yet.  So I do not know what I will be working with.  I told her that it will have to wait until after Christmas.  I am booked up right now.  She has put the quilt in her closet at this time, so the kitties will not get to it again.  

Thanks for your suggestion.  

Comment by Janet/MO on Saturday

Carol, do you think it would work to basically darn the hole together using thread that matches the fabric as closely as possible?  I know there are people who repair old quilts, but I have never done it myself.

I was in a Secret Santa exchange with the Piece Around the World group.  I had Barbara Setterdahl's name.  She said her favorite block is the Churn Dash so I made her a little wallhanging with a ME'd cardinal in the center square.  I only had 1 fat quarter of the cardinal fabric & 1 fat quarter of the shiny background fabric so I was happy to find a way to use them.  She received it yesterday so now I can show it to everyone.

Congrats Sheila.  

I have a question for all... dear DIL has a quilt that has a small hole it in, not in a seam.  It appears that a kitten got a claw stuck in it.  How can it be 'patched' or otherwise fixed so the batting does not start coming through?  

Thanks in advance.

Thx everyone. I was really surprised as it was the 1st time I've entered anything - either at Sweet Pea  or any other site. Now I have to choose a design. Ack! Like that's easy???
