This first quilt is a Thimbleberries BOM
that I machine pieced when I first started quilting.
The twelve blocks represent the months.
A friend quilted it for me as I didn't yet have my longarm then.
The two quilts below are shop samples
I purchased from The Village Mercantile years ago.
I have always enjoyed this throw.
Can't remember where I purchased it as I've had it a long time.
After taking a break from the applique borders for a log cabin quilt, I am again working on them. Yesterday, while watching a baseball game on TV, I spread out border #3 on the family room sofa to audition placement for some of the pieces. As I've mentioned in previous posts, I am making it up as I go, so I have no final plan exactly,
only thoughts in my head.
I got the design for the cup from a pair of pajamas and I made up the cupcake.
A quilt book had a strawberry design I could use.
The hat pattern is from a Susan Branch quilt pattern.
The colors are actually brighter and darker than they appear in these photos.
I wanted a teapot to put in the center of the strip and couldn't find anything that was the size and design that I liked so I drew one last night. Today I'll prep the fabric pieces.
None of what is in the photos is definite yet ... I may or may not use what is shown, and the placements of pieces may change as well.
I'm just trying things out to see if I like what I've done so far.
I have other pieces prepped and what is shown in the photos is iffy.
I would like to do some letters on either the top or bottom border
but first will have to come up with shapes that work for me.
I don't enjoy doing applique on sharp inside corners.
Have a happy Friday.
Thanks for visiting!
