Quilt As You Go In A Day Or Less

I love to make quilts and I love to do hand quilting applique and lots of fun embroidery on the things that I sew.  But one thing that I don't like is that I can make quilt tops much quicker than I can either quilt or send them out to the quilter.  So I decided that I would do a quilt as you go project.

This quilt is done by creating the rectangle in the middle with charm squares and then sandwich with the batting and the backing and quilt.  Then as you add the logs of the log cabin blocks you just keep adding all the layers and quilt it as you go along.

This is the front of the quilt. 

And this is the back !  Just as cute as the front.

The only thing that makes me any happier is gingham.  So I made a card today!  wow it was great to be back in the stamp studio stamping just for fun.
so happy to be doing what I love!
sew and stamp happy!

When Pigs Fly...

Well you know what they say about that!!!  It just might be going to happen soon.  I know that my friends will be astounded that I have actually posted here.  But here goes a new day for me.

I have been working hard on a few projects lately.  One was to apply for a job as a quilting teacher for a quilt retreat next winter.  I didn't make the cut but I do like the projects that I submitted. 

One class I would have loved to teach was for these darling pin cusions.
I love to do different styles of cusions from squares!  Yes, you heard that, all of the above are made with squares.
Stay tuned for the next project that I submitted.
thanks for looking and hope you have a most wonderful day today.
sew happy!
