See You in September

Morning Ladies,

Glad to be back sewing and enjoyed sewing with the Riley Blake Designs gingham.  Got a little cross eyed a couple of times, but it straightened out okay. 8-)  I would like to thank Mdm. Samm and  Shari for the work in getting this Hop together.

  This is my first free hand quilting that I have attempted.  Even though it is a little rough I'm still pleased with it.  After all I can only get better. The pattern called for it to be ragged out.  But the pictures were taken before I washed it.

  Be sure and visit all the blogs participating in this hop.  Go back and visits yesterdays if you haven't,  there were some real nice things.  You may even get some new ideas.

  Don't forget when looking at these pictures, this is my first attempt at quilting 
free motion quilted with bright summer colors,


                              I know, I know, but I gave it a good shot anyway.                            


I had to stitch in the ditch here because of the ragging.

As a last minuet thought I showed part of the back

Oh, by the way I'm changing one of the off colors in my kitchen to red from blue.  As you can see I'm not done yet.  Maybe another hop would take care of that.  That seems to be the only way to get anything done for myself.


Another thing that I made this summer is a quilted pad for a baby cradle that I found in a yard sale.  I just painted it white and an old quilt I had also found that I use for some of my dolls I made to fit the bottom of the cradle.  This I thought would make a good prop for pictures of the dolls on etsy.  I went in the house to get the camera and found Don and Sue trying it out for size.  But it does give you a reference for size.


 I made a white blanket and pillow out of fleece but forgot to put it in.
                                                                   It's Sue's fault

and this pin cushion I made for a friend in the UK , Cally if you are watching then that would be you.

and lastly this little sofftie was made out of scrapes from a vintage 
womens jacket.

Well, there you go, hope you found something you liked,  or maybe something sparked an idea for you.
I would enjoy hearing from you.  Be sure and visit the other blogs listed below, and have a good time.

Hope you enjoy the hop and have a Blessed day.

I notices by some of this mornings 
comments I stated that wrong,I 
should have said free motion quilting.
I was referring mainly to the outside
row.  Sorry about that.
