Sunday Sewday!

Isn't this a beauty!  This is made from blocks many of you contributed.  I distributed patterns and pieces of the red fabric with instructions to add your on red, white and blues to make the blocks.

It was scheduled for auction at the Dallas County Fair in July of last year but, as with many, many things, that did not happen so, it got moved to the back burner.

I pulled it out a couple weeks ago and finished it up with machine quilting and binding.

This was more than just a one Sunday Sewday. It is huge! 104" x 120"

As far as I know, this will be in the DC Fair live auction in July. However, if anyone wants to buy it now for $2,000, every penny of the money will be donated to the Dallas County Fair 4-H programs.

We all miss the main feature of Quilt Circle of Friends, showing and sharing what we have been doing. Send me your pics and I will post!

Here is a Kimberbell Pillow Celia completed, working in tandem with her sister, Rozetta. Nice.

New Stuff!

Don't these just make you want to scream SPRING! These three prints are digital which is a dying process that allows for more color.




Time for FRIDAY FEATURE and it's a good one.

All Christmas fabric is 50% the original price, now through Tuesday.

Customer Show and Tell

Desiree  stopped in to show me her maiden voyage machine quilting on her sewing machine. 
I personally think straight line quilting is attractive and creates a more contemporary look.

Here is the back. She used safety pins to baste and painters tape to mark lines. Starting in the center, she angled out and then filled in that area with evenly spaced lines.

To further enhance these solid color quilts, she used the faux piping in the binding technique.

Thanks for sharing, Desiree!
