In the Kitchen Stitchin' Blog Hop!

Welcome to the final day of the In the Kitchen Stitchin' Blog Hop. So thankful to Carla of Creatin' in the Sticks for hosting this super fun event. My project is these five Homestead Life collection panels that were won in 2020 from: Tara Reed, who is also the fabric and pattern designer. I did post about them back then, and now finally have them all finished. Sadly, in the move to this apartment, one of the panels got lost (there were six). It had a pig on it. 'Had to make two photos to get them all in the scene. Don't you just love these? Each is quilted with minimal walking-foot quilting (one vertical line near the outer edges of each center image and around the outer edges of each mat). 'Thought that too much quilting might distract from the beautiful printed images. They have Warm N' Natural© batting inside. The backings are muslin, and each mat measures 11" X 18". Thank you again to Carla, and Tara! Be sure to visit all of the other blog hoppers to see what kitchen goodies they have created:

Hands2Help 2021: progress on quilt

It is time again for the yearly Hands2Help Comfort Quilt Challenge, hosted by Sarah of Confessions of a Fabric Addict. The quilts will be donated to a worthy charity for terminally ill patients and their families, and other people in need. Here is my progress thus far. The fabrics are scrappy, but coordinate well together. Gotta love a scrappy quilt! The pattern is really cute, and at the final reveal I will credit the pattern designer. Hop on over to see other peoples' progress, and maybe consider joining-in on this worthy cause. Smiles to all.

Salt & Sand Blog Hop: Day 1

Good morning, bright and early, to all of you. Welcome to Day 1 of the Salt & Sand Blog Hop. My creation is this little quilted wall hanging, featuring "kissing fish" and the sandy ocean floor. 'See the lone starfish lying there? 'Reminds me of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida, from family vacations many years ago. Those salt waters can be many shades of greens and blues. The vibrant batik fabrics work so well for aquatic quilts, don't they? This little quilt measures approx. 12" X 16", and it is machine quilted with walking-foot echo lines and a decorative machine stitched wavy line. There is no binding, as it was sewn RST and then turned. Thank you, Carol, for another awesome blog hop! Be sure to visit all of the amazing blog hoppers this week to see what they have created:
