4th of July and our furry friends

Happy 4th of July America  I hope you all have a great time this evening take time to sit on a quilt and enjoy the fireworks! I saw this in Amy Ball’s feed @cofferingsstudio on Instagram  and ask if I could share it here!  She is so nice! I feel this way about every quilt I gift! Coffee Rings Studio Her latest quilt! I use my quilts outdoors and NO it doesn’t bother me a bit that anyone else would! Thank you Amy for letting me pass on your knowledge this 4th of July! Fireworks   Fireworks displays will be everywhere this evening and be scaring all the fur babies! Try some of these tricks to keep your animals safe! My pets will be in the house hiding! They hate the noise! Please be especially careful with sparklers and little children! If you use sparklers have a bucket of water nearby to put used ones in! Sparklers are hot long after there spark and can cause terrible burns! Stay Safe Today! Lisa

Pincushion Tutorial

Hexagon Flower Pincushion  Fabric - Heather Ross Trixie Back of pincushion- Heather Ross Strawberries  Thimblepads I keep them in a little tin! Sue Daley Millners Needles  Size 11 Walnut shells Small scissors and a needle threader! Aurifil 80 weight thread A hexagon flower sewn by hand using Aurifil 80 weight thread a piece of backing fabric!  (2) pieces of Pellon SF101 cut to size! Iron the Pellon  to each back of fabric! It will strengthen  the front side of each side! Draw a circle on the backside  of your flower! I used a measuring cup,  to draw a circle! Put fabrics right sides together and sew 1/4” inside the circle! All the way around! It will look like above! Use a seam ripper to make about a 1 1/2” gap Big enough to put your finger in! Trim around the circle  (About a 1/4”) Leaving room for clipping! Clip all around the circle  and be careful not to clip the stitches! Pin the top opening and iron! It is easier to fill it with Walnut Shells if you use a funnel! Fill it up and h
