Really cute! Nice sharp points on the petals. How do you stick them to your machine?
sew a little piece of velcro to the cushion, then stick on velcro to the machine. I also stick on some snips the same way. Love stick on velcro.
the points are sewn by folding the fabric, sewing, then turning out. very easy. the raw edges are exposed on the bottom, but it's so small it doesn't really matter, the velcro covers most of it.
I made good progress on my Christmas quilt. I got some advise from a lady in a local guild who quilts for the public, she suggested I limit my fills to 3, and pick ones I am comfortable doing (skip the bubbles). So I did swirls, peacock feathers, and leaves. I have now finished all the fills and started on the grid between the frames. I will have to make a decision on the border soon.
Today was a day to sew for me! Yippee! I’ve been putting in extra days at work because I am working very little in June.
but today, I was home. I was given these blue and white blocks from a fellow guild member after a presentation I did more than a year ago. They were different sizes, so I bordered them in white and squared them to 14”.
when I went to put them together today, the layout was awkward. So I went digging in the stash. Found this rocket print and even though the blues are different, I decided it worked.
i made a block for the center and then added borders. Hope some kid enjoys it! Now to get rid of more misc blocks that the guild members played around making!
that is clever! I like how it turned out.
Looks like you are on the home stretch.
Looks great, some kid will love it.
I still have to figure out the border tho. I don't want to do feathers, there isn't another feather on the quilt. Plus I'm not very good with them. I'm thinking something with the vines & leaves. I need to draw something out and see.
