COME SEE MY BOYS!!

IMG_0675 IMG_0676 IMG_0677 IMG_0678

Don't you just love my boys? That is what I was calling them all day when I was taking them off the machine. Then I thought that I almost have enough boys to put names on these guys and make me a "My boys quilt"..


I almost forgot to tell you, I tried to use old Steam A Seam project scraps, just to save on Steam A Seam and to use up old scraps....So if you are going...hummmm that is how my son dresses without supervision, well....I was just trying to be thrifty (cheap).

I used the Go cutter to cut out the Overall Sam's and Marjorie sent me the embroidery design.

Gene has been working with Marjorie's designs as well, you can see his post here.


You can find Marjorie's embroidery designs here.


Of course, you can find Accuquilt here.

Your boys remind me of a quilt my mother was trying to make many years ago. No fusible product was available at that time.

I doubt I will enter the Barn Quilt but I have been trying to talk hubby into letting me paint one for our Hay Barn. I think Sam and Sue with a truck and a doll house would be cute (he's a driver and I am a Realtor)

I was thinking the same thing--you need one more to make them your 5 sons :) They are really cute. I save my small scraps of fusible too--they can really come in handy sometimes! Enjoy.
