Camo & Taz

Camo & Taz

I have been asked by a friend to make some quilts
I made him one for his wife before Christmas
and they loved it so much that they have
asked me to make 4 more.
Thank you Terry and Billie for your trust and
the honor of making these for you.
The first two quilts are in the works now.

Taz and South Park are themes for one of  the quilts.
Believe it or not it is hard to find Taz fabric,
I did find a small piece (1 1/2 yards) so
we will be adding these fabrics.
The star fabric is for the back of the quilt.
The Taz, blue, cream, pink (just a small amount) and
black (not the brown) are for the front.
I have found some embroidery designs for both
theme ideas to add to it as well.
I will share those at another time.  

 Next up is the Camo quilt, theme is hunting.
I found this white camo fabric and am in love with it, 
to the point I bought some for myself.
The backing fabric is the tree print on the right.
the blocks will be the camo, bordered in brown and then green
I have removed the cream color from the pile.
I really like this combo.
After many hours of shopping (for fabric and embroidery designs)
I found some designs I really like and hope the T&B will like them also
Here is one and the test stitch out
isn't he great?
Terry always wants eagles and flags,
I love this combination.
This camo quilt is about hunting deer and bore hogs
here is one of the deer designs and its
test stitch out.  I have been lucky enough to find
some well done designs.

As I am typing this out, a design is stitching out on the embroidery
machine.  I will have more to share in a day or two.

I spent this morning deciding just how the Taz quilt will be designed
and figuring yardage.  It is up next for cutting and sewing.

Have a blessed Sunday.


Happy Birthday to my beautiful daughter

Book Tote & Lunch Bag

Book Tote & Lunch Bag

Two more projects complete
First a Book/Computer Tote
A in the hoop Lunch bag.

First the tote, 
the inside pockets, a set for both sides.

 The completed tote, made from wool jackets
from the thrift store, washed and dried to felt.
This tote will go to my daughters mentor teacher, for helping her through
her student teaching, her last semester of college.

Next, for my daughter
a lunch bag she requested.
This is an in the hoop project.
Project Tutorial 
 In the hoop means all parts to the project are made on the embroidery machine
Here the sides are made, placing the lining on the back side
of the hoop (with spray adhesive) then
turning it back over and placing the batting, then the 
outside fabric.  Sew this out.  It quilts it, sews all the edges and
the circle, after each part is trimmed.

 The little snowman marks where the second side will be placed
see the next picture as the second side is partly sewn out.


This is the flap, outside fabric


 Lining of the side pieces (on the underside of the hoop)
 After making 4 sides, the flap and front and back panels, 
time to sew it together again done on the embroidery machine.
 The finished lunch bag.  
To cute.
 Inside, with one pocket.
Enjoy Sis
