Quilt With Us

I have finally been able to work on some creative endeavors. Thought I would post a few pictures, nothing earth shattering, just being glad to be able to do something positive for a change.

I was able to finish a UFO that I had started in 2002. When my husband, Frank, passed away, I had put it aside. Now seemed like a good time to finish it. I did the quilting on my new mid-arm and was surprised at just how quickly it seemed to get finished. The picture is before I put the binding on it.

The next picture is a project from a class I took last week on making wall dolls. I did not finish the doll in the class as I had to leave early to go to a rehearsal at church to practice my upcoming solo. These are dolls that can hang on your wall by means of a hook on its back. Great way to use up scraps of fabric, embellishments and such.

Here is another picture of her on my husband's shoulder as she shows up better against the brown of his recliner.

Really nice to feel like I've gotten something done. Now to go and work on a PC for an upcoming swap and get a long over due project done and off to a dear friend and very patient lady.

Thanks Aida. I need to get busy sewing some doll clothes for the 18" American Girl Doll. My twin 7 year old granddaughters just got their dolls in June for their birthdays so grandma needs to get busy. Especially with Christmas fast approaching! Yikes!!

You're certainly very busy.  The doll is cute, I have lots of doll patterns for 11" and 18" dolls, just don't have the energy to do any sewing for now.

Thanks everyone for your very nice comments. The wall dolls can also be used as decorations on a tree or wherever else you'd like to hang them. It's a great way to use up scraps of fabric, embellishments and the like. You can make them into fairies, witches, Santa, any number of things. It all depends on what fabric you use and how you embellish.

I love your wall hanging.  The dolls are cute. I never heard of wall dolls before.  Where have I been?

Beautiful quilt.  Love the applique.

Love that quilt.  The idea of owning a mid-arm machine sounds so nice to me.  Cute little wall doll, too.

Very nice Terri.  It sure feels good to get older UFOs finished, doesn't it?!  I think a lot of us on QWU have been trying to do that this year.

Thank you Bonnie. I'll post another picture of it with its binding later. When I did the binding, I used a decorative stitch, which I felt added a nice frame work to it.
