Where Flowers Bloom Blog Hop Day 1

Image
For months now many people have been working  on all kinds of flower projects to inspire you!   Carla of Creatin’ in the Sticks is our hostess and  I am grateful to be able to participate in this blog hop.
I went through a bunch of fabric trying to figure out what I wanted to make.   At the time my oldest daughter had her second daughter in less than a year. Carla said we could make anything as long as it has flowers! So, I did a little creative thinking!
Having been killing time at doctors appointments and  at the hospital I had been watching a lot of online classes and Youtube videos!  I came across a sewing course on  Creativebug called  Wardrobe Basics: Sewing Tunic No. 1Using her -  #100 Acts of Sewing Patterns (Which are free with the course) By Sonya Philips
Flower Tunic 1 



This fabric is by Anna Maria Horner and comes in 4 colorways! I think it is gorgeous! I did not alter the pattern at all on this one.




Flower Tunic 2 - Tula Pink Fabric

I loved this Tula Pink print so much I have had it in my st…

Nuts About ? Blog Hop and Giveaway

Image
I have always loved a good blog hop and this is a great one so far! Nuts About ? was thought up by Marian of Seams To Be Sew! She is such a sweet hostess. Thank you Marian for all your hard work. I spent a great deal of time thinking about what I am nuts about! My family (yes, but not for a hop), I truly love pincushions, but I really do have a thing for pillows!I am Nuts for - PillowsDon't you just love Charlie Harper! I do! Sometimes a print is just to perfect to cut up. Do a little straight line quilting and make pretty pillows for your couch. The lighting in my house was bad today, so out on the lawn for photos.
Here are a few I have made over the last 8 months! Great way to practice invisible zippers!
Making couch cushions kind of brightens up a room! Holidays is just one reason to make a pillow or two!
Even the neck pillow got recovered! Love the blue roses by Cotton + Steel! It is removeable.
These were all made using Lori Holt patterns from her book, Farm Girl Vintage (I am nu…

See you in September!
(It is now time)
Day 1

3 projects

Project 1
Riley Blake Designs Gingham.

I started searching through my stash
and found the blue medium gingham
and this great matching blue with white polka dots!
I used small blue gingham on the inside for the lining!

Strawberries are really popular
on Instagram lately and the red made for great contrast!
I found these two strawberries on a scrap of fabric and ironed on
HeatnBond Lite by therm-o-web.
Cut them out, peeled the back off,
and ironed them on my front panel!

Then using Aurifil 50 wt. threads sewed…

Beautiful quilt and the colors are fantastic! I was about 8 when my GM let me use my hands to move the treadle on her machine, lol!
Such a nice comment, thank you Judy!

A lot of Grandmothers have taught people to sew! I plan to teach both my grandchildren to sew even if it is sewing on buttons and simple things. The internet - I am proud to see how many of you are self taught, self starters, future designers out there in blogland. Judy, I hope you enjoy your winnings!

What a great Hop! So glad I got to participate! Very happy you all stopped by and left so many comments sharing a "wink" into your lives!
Thank you!

To get the code for the button and find out more goHERE! The very first blog hop I participated with Madam Samm in was the Red, White and Blue Blog Hop, on July 6, 2012. I made one block and I was so proud of my accomplishment. Madam Samm has really gotten me to stretch my imagination over the last year and a half. My last entries, in the Pin It Blog Hop, were these items. Hilda Hen won most creative on our day! I was so happy, just for the title! Madam Samm thinks up all these great hops. Participate just once and you will be hooked. It is awesome to create and show with designers from around the world.

Be a Hexie Queen Blog Hop

Welcome to "In The Boon Docks"

Today I am a Hexie Queen Wanna bee! I have finished the quilt top! Yippee!

Thank you Madame Samm @ Sew We QuiltandDebbie @ Debby Kratovil Quiltsfor organizing and cheering us all on. Madame Samm your challenge almost got me this time.

Time for a reality check, I cannot do hexie's by hand (I have tried), so that leaves me and my machine! This project started back in March and needed to be finish. I hope you like "Meet the Lorax" Trying to find the right blocks instead of using a pattern can sometimes get me in trouble. I think David will be very happy when it is done!

I started out making blocks from Fons & Porters "Easy Quilts" Cascarone Quilt but realized it really was not a pattern for directional fabric after making (4) of the triangles. Then one day I was on Youtube and found a video from Missouri Star Quilt Co. "The Tea Cup Quilt". Youtube video I linked to it for you The Tea Cup Quilt What a great …
