In progress quilt projects
May 17, 2010 2 Comments
I am hoping to get this little quilt done in the next month. I am finding I am enjoying the hand work. Faux hand quilting is just quilting into the batting but not into the backing fabric. I did not want my stitches to show because I am using multiple colors of thread… Plus who needs to know I only can quilt TOE HOOKERS !!!
MY NEXT PROJECTS WILL BE …. Quilts for Brookie and Mia. I owe little MIA a quilt… long story and no I am not going to squeal on myself. So I am going to make her a simple quilt comforter with simple borders (YEAH, like I ever make just a simple quilt.) using this cute panel and coordinate fabrics. BUT….. I can not make Mia a quilt without making Brookie a quilt…. Just simply not fair, cannot be done……. So my evil plot is to get Brookie’s Nonnie to help me. She quilts, so she can make Brookie’s while I make mine for Mia. That way I have fulfilled my obligation (FINALLY) and both quilts will be made.
Here are photo edited pictures of the quilt panel and fabrics. I selected the fabrics because they kind of reminded me of each of the girl’s personality. ( I usually edit the background of my pictures and I also have to adjust the color or you would just be seeing dark blotchy pictures….. I am getting good at photo editing if I do say so myself. )
If I dye the hair just a little redder….. it would look just like Miss Brookie carrot top !
Take a close look at this panel… this little girl looks just like MISS MIA. (Someday I will post their pictures with their parent’s permission.)
I am also thinking of cutting up this panel to make a cute little toddler quilt …. but it might have to go live in my stash for a while …. till the right child comes along.
I am enjoying this blogging business… I just have to learn how to use some of the features of WORDPRESS. I have no idea how to program the side panels….. That I am leaving for another day.
Have a happy quilting day
