I have been working with some fat quarters that I purchased. This green star is some thing I was working on and thought I would make it into a pillow, but it is just a bit big for a pillow so I will turn in to a small quilt to hang on the wall and practice my quilting and bindings.
The red are 2 of 4 that I will be making for a small quilt. Both of these are from Missouri star quilt videos. Love Jenny's videos so may great ideas. The fabric is what it left from a quilt I bought from Craftsy a few month ago when they were having a big sale. I have 75% of the quilt cut out and the fabric in the center is what was from the scraps. I am in a stop mode and can only get 2 done because I ran out of the white fabric and need to go to the quilt store and get some more!
Some other things that I have been working on.
I saw a tutorial for a cutting, ironing table at Buzzin bumble.
I was in desperate need of a cutting table because I was on the kneeling on the floor trying to cutting my fabric, let me tell you...not fun! I had carpet burns on the tops of my feet from all the getting up and down. LOL!
I found the table at Goodwill and it was $19. The board cost me about $25 and the rest of the stuff was just a few more dollars. I think the whole thing cost me under $75. The best part is it is saving my knees and back ! Happy Dance time!!
Here is the top, when I am cutting larger things, I use my big cutting mat.
Now How about a little funny.
I made the red cherries on Fri, ( Bee in my bonnet - farmgirl vintage) I was so excited and wanted to get it quilted up and started quilting, so proud of myself that I was doing this on my own then I attached the binding again very happy with myself, Happy and cheering the whole time Go Heide, Go Heide...Then I was getting ready to hand sew the binding on and OH NO!!!! The stems of the cherries were sewn on wrong! I had to make the little blueberries ( same pattern as cherries) just to prove to myself that I could do it right. At first I was mad, All that cute fabric wasted, then I had to laugh, how could I not see it. Oh well....you live and learn.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy quilty hugs to you all.
