Well, this morning - along with frustration with my sewing machine giving me grief- I finished 2 ‘down & dirty’ tops for LWR, the organization that lost quilts in Beirut.
all year I have been cutting copious scraps into usable sizes. But I had a box that wasn’t quite yardage - less than 1/2 yd. - and maybe not Full WOF. So I started cutting wife strips as long as they were. Earlier this week I pulled out the thickest pile the same width and started sewing the lengths together and cutting them to 60” in length.
today I was able to group the rows in two different tops. They aren’t the prettiest scrap quilts, but they were fast, easy, and will be warm and comforting. I needed them to be fast as I have lost seamstresses in my group. And we are trying to finish as many tops as possible before we have a fall pick up day!
Your Hen House forever project is very cute! Yes, I think your first hen was merely not quite the fabrics to choose to go together. She'll be great with the others I think.
Ellen your quilts are not the most spectacular, BUT............they do have their own charm and beauty and I am sure someone in need will be quite happy with them. They have color and are cheery.
I have not been quilting the last few days. Yesterday I started a shirt that I had cut out a week ago and finished sewing it up today. It came out really nice. I went thru my closet and found a top I have hung on to for quite a few years and never wear........it is just too long. So.............I chopped off 5 inches, rehemmed and tried it on again and now I am sure I am gonna reach for it alot. I can now wear it tucked out with just a bit tucked in the front and it will look great. It is a cream capped sleeve top with a very cool texture so will go with just about everything.
Tomorrow I am going to meet my ex boss and give him the t-shirt quilt I made for him out of his wife's clothes.
Wow! That's a lot of T-shirt quilts. If we get to meet for retreat would you lead a side bar group by sharing what you do and how? Kind of share best practices.
Oh fun!! I do enjoy plaids!!
Certainly. Tho I have put some on my blog if you want to read it sooner. The tshirt one, not the I spy one
I know, but I wanted to give you some variety :D
My next project is to clean out the sewing room, and get some hard flooring in there. I have wanted it since the beginning, but wanted to have the cash saved, ya know?! :D
