Smorgasbord of Quilty Goodness!!!!

Finished this Christmas quilt today!

                                                                   Here is a close up!

I don't know if I told you but the first Ribbon Quilt I made never made it to the gals house.  So I made another one.

Just as I finished it she wrote and told me that her neighbor teenager took the package because she or he was curious as to what was in it.  Once this person opened it up and saw, they stashed it back in the envelop and put it in their closet.  When the mom was helping this teenager look for something she came across the Ribbon quilt....  The mom made the teenager return it and apologize.

So now I have a ribbon quilt.

Then a friend in Missouri sent me 70 of these Embroidered Angels for making the Quilt sets for Heaven Sent.  I was so excited to get them.  Now I can distribute them out to those that don't have an embroidery machine.  I am so excited.  We are slowly getting this non-profit going but we are getting there.

Hope all of you have a fabulous Thanksgiving!!!

Baby Clothes Memory quilt

I was asked to make this Quilt below.

I was thrilled with how it turned out.

I will say tho...working with jersey is hard.  I cut out the back of the clothes and put pellon on the back with the raw edges turned under.  The jersey still stretched.  It was maddening.

Another issue I had was I like things organized and neat.  I put this quilt together several times (not sewn but different formats on the floor).  They all seemed so messy to me.

Finally I just went to work.  I felt that it would come to me eventually so I went about cutting out the clothes and ironing pellon on them.  The only item that does not have pellon is the little onesie with the ruffles on the right bottom.

Once I had that done, I went for the background fabric.  I got that all together and sewn.  Then I quilted in the ditch, put a binding on and then decided where the clothes should go.

I am pleased with the outcome but wish she had given me some dresses and pants.  She told my sister she was happy with it and I guess that is all that counts.
