Suze, welcome back. Sounds like your vision is much improved and you can enjoy quilting again
Love your scrappy string stars.
Yup she cried when she saw the label I made from her hubby's request.
I love them!! Great star blocks
I think this looks like the best one coming up soon. DH and I are both too old to do quilt shows any more but any quilt show in Wooster (near Amish country) would be a good one.
Judy, thank you for the information on the show in Wooster. I will look into it.
Just curious, what are you quilting now?
Do any of the ladies on this forum make quilts for charity? I'd enjoy connecting with them.
I'm making small things now. Made a wall hanging for a good friend and surprised her by mailing it off to her. Now I'm tackling a place mat set with lots of little pieces. All quilting will be done on my Singer 201-2 because my back doesn't allow me to stand at my longarm any more.
I found a cute pattern by Karen Griska at Etsy.com where she sells oodles of downloadable scrappy quilt patterns for $5 each. I'll take her scrappy quilt ideas and use them to make placemats instead of big quilts. The one I will work on this week is called "Trumpet Vine." I say "this week" casually because it will take me a week to cut up and organize all of the little pieces and then a few more weeks to sew them all together. LOL But that's what quilters do, isn't it?
Slice, dice and reattach ...
ETA: Here's my current project:
Judy, that pattern is wonderful. I will check out her Etsy page. Thank you again.
Enjoy our beautiful weather today.
We are having company for the holiday weekend, which means I won't be able to use my sewing room as it is also the guest room. The guests are family and she is a quilter too, so I can use it some. But it's not the same. So I'm getting hand work ready. I prepped the rest of my wall hanging, butterfly wings and Carolina Chickadee (for reference the bird is approx 2.5" tall). There are also a number of VERY small berries - I think I'm going to embroidery those. They are about the size of a pencil eraser, easier to embroider than try and turn under such small pieces and make them round. I know it can be done, but too fiddly. I'll also embroider the butterfly bodies on both and the beak/eyes/legs on the bird.
