Quilt Show Entry #4

Here we have quilt show entry #4 "Mystery Rose" This quilt was a mystery quilt that I did with my quilt group in Ca. I am amazed at how it all came together.

After I got it all quilted I decided to embellish the center which is raw edge appliqued. I did not put this quilt on the longarm, instead I did stitch in the ditch.

I decided to do buttonhole stitch around the flowers and leaves, then of course it needed some beads. Remember to see a closer view, you can click on the picture.

This is the left hand side of the applique.

Today was the quilt show that I have entered the quilts in, what an array of beautiful quilts. I will share some of them in the next few days.

Until later.

Appleblossom RR -- Cobi's Block -- This n That

I don't know if you all remember my telling you about Cobi's block being lost in the mail some where between here and the Nederlands...and that I made her a replacement block....well after 2 months out there somewhere it arrived. The replacement block is here. Below is the lost block with my work added.

Here is the whole block.

Another note, all the quilts for the quilt show are finished and delivered to the quilt show staff. Sometimes it is necessary to give oneself a deadline, now I have 4 quilts done that have been sitting there waiting, the WIPs pile is going down.

I have been working on some American Hero quilts today, and plan to put the quilt piecing on hold for a while....I need to do some scrapbooking. It has been a long time since I have done that and I am way behind. I will continue to do CQ in the evenings as it is a good activity while watching TV. I will share some scrapbooking pages with you all. I want to get my quilt and CQ albums caught up and then on to family pictures.

I will also be sharing pictures from the quilt show with you.

The weather here has been hopping about, we have been having rain, wind, snow and some sunshine.....yes, I said snow....LOL.

Until later, God Bless

Quilt Show Entry #3

Here is the 3rd piece that I am entering in our local quilt show. On my online list CQI, one of our members gave a class to teach us how to make a pouch. I made mine into a small evening purse. The purse measure 6" wide by 8" high (not counting the handle). For the handle I used glass beads.

Here is a close up of the main part of the purse. The pretty pink fringe was a gift from my friend Jill....thank you Jill.

I will post entry #4 for you viewing pleasure shortly.

Until then, enjoy

Show Quilt #2

After 2 years of work (off and on) the crazy quilt "Crazy for Michele" for my DDIL, Michele is done. There are 6 blocks all in pinks, starting from light going to dark, it is framed with black velvet.

There is alot I could tell about the time spent working on this lovely work, but instead I will share a few details with you.

This first block holds a 2 crochet motifs made by my MIL, Letha (Michele's grandma in-law). The pin at the top belonged to Michele's Mom, the heart pin was something I had. This quilt is the beginning of my CQ experience and this is the block I began with. Remember you can click on the picture for a larger view.

Block 2 has an "M" for Michele, it also has a cross to show her faith in the Lord. The rose pin in the upper corner was Michele's, Grandma's.

Block 3 has a "D" for Destiny, with a stick pin that is Michele's. The cream fabric and lace with the pink beads is from my wedding dress (the pink beads were not part of my dress). The big flower is a fabric print that I filled with single french knots. The lace below that is a vintage tatting. The little fan in the lower right corner is a hand dyed motif.

Block 4 revolves around the fan that I had alot of fun encrusting. The crochet motif is another piece by Letha and the pin in the middle belonged to Michele's Mom. Hand dyed butterfly motifs fly thru, Michele's loves butterflies

Block 6 has several special features...a "B" for Brandyn and a "C" for Codey. The white flower with the red heart comes from a dress belonging to Michele's Mom, as does the bird pin. Another hand dyed motif and a floral arrangement along the top with more butterflies.

Block 6, features a "J" for Josh (my son) with a butterfly (Michele) flitting about him. I found the little Princess cross stitch while at the store one day and had to get that for her (she a princess) and do it up for her quilt.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing the quilt finished. I have added alot more beads, flowers, ribbons and bows over the last week or so to get it to the point of being done. Now off to the quilt show....oh I also added a label to the back bordered in lace.

Thank you for looking,
Until later

Quilt Show Entry

Tumbling Blocks of Life..........this is the 2006 mystery quilt that I did with my online group, Quilts On Review. It is always interesting to see what comes from the fabrics you blindly choose. I choose the name "Tumbling Blocks of Life" because of all the highs and lows of life, sometimes causing us to tumble thru life, only to trip over another stumbling block.

I really like the way this turned out, and of course I love the colors, which were chosen around the fall leaf fabric. The butterfly fabric was purchased at a small shop in Wyoming, I have not seen it again. It is also a part of the next quilt I will be sharing.

For the quilting pattern I choose Jamie Wallens, Mystical Cotton Tracks Workshop 1 , leaf design. I got his workshop, which includes a 2 DVDs and workbook, I still have alot of practicing to do.

I will be sharing with you the completed CQ wall hanging that I have been doing for DDIL, it too will be in the quilt show. Yes, it is finally complete (well except for the label), more on that tomorrow.

Until later.

American Hero Quilts

Hi All, what a busy week. Sorry it has been so long since I posted. Have been busy getting some quilts ready for a show. Also put some quilts on the machine for American Hero. First is the pretty quilt.

The details of the stitching are below, stars and meandering with a RW&B variegated thread.

This is the other quilt, I only did it with a meander, also in a RW&B variegated thread. I still have two more to go, but they need to be enlarged to meet the size requirement of AmHero. These two were sent to me last winter by Linda D on one of my quilt lists, when I realized they were to small I had to get some more fabric, that has arrived. Once I get done with the quilts for the show I will finish them up.

Speaking of the quilt show, it is for our little town of Hyatteville. I have one quilt finished and ready to go, well all except its sleeve. I hope to finish up the second one today.....of course I am not working on it while on here...I will post a picture of the quilts in the next day or so. Wanted to post the AmHero quilts first.

Until later.
