I just wanted to show you the completed "Posh Penelope" by Sew Kind of Wonderful. I did the binding yesterday morning. YEAH!!!!
Not perfect but I love it!!!
I also want to say since some have asked, I used Java Batiks from Inchworm fabrics, most of the background fabrics and a few of the flowers is Island Batik, and I did use one batik from Timeless Treasures for a background.
Next I want to show you just two squares. One year, can't remember when but it has been a while, I am guessing six years???? Anyways, several sisters, mother, and nieces decided to pull one name out of the hat each month and then that person got to chose a block.
Then that month we all sent that block to the person's whose name was chosen.
As you can see, I chose the Tree of Life. Yesterday I spent my afternoon trying to figure out who made which block. There are twelve blocks. Just a suggestion, if you by chance do this, put the name on the back somewhere???? Since we all have a group message on our phones it was kinda easy. Eventually I figured it out and started embroidering the name and what relation they were.
Here is my mother's block, maybe you can see that she did not follow the rules (funny huh)? I think it was right on the beginning of her dementia....but I love the block anyways.
So this is my quest now, to find a sashing fabric and border fabric. I am going through all of my fabrics, thinking of organizing them as well...so this project may take a while.
