Gone Fishing

Finished the Gone Fishing quilt tonight.  The pattern was modified from one designed by Susan Guzman & found in the June/July 2013 McCall's Quick Quilts page 50.  I added more blocks & used grey flannel for the backing & sashing.  Added a punch of red in the sashing blocks.  The fabric squares were 10" squares (layer cake) called "Catch of the Day" from Kanvas Studios by Benartex.
Machine quilted with Swirls & Hooks - my own design.

T-Shirt dress for Hannah

Finished this little T-shirt dress for my Hannah.  Added a double ruffle skirt & applique flowers with itty bitty buttons in the center.  It was a fun project.

Finished machine quilting my Gone Fishing quilt & decided to hand sew the binding on so won't be finished for a few days.

Also going to make some pot holders to go with my visiting teaching message for this month.

Stay dry everyone!

Raggedy Quilt

Just finished a rag quilt for a co-worker. She ordered it for her daughter's birthday this coming week. Managed to stay up late the last couple of nights to get it done. Colors were chosen by her Mom. I like the colors together.

The "Gone Fishing" quilt is ready to put on the frame for machine quilting.  It is backed with grey flannel.  The "Layer Cake" squares were bought on sale & have been sitting waiting for just the right project.  This is what I came up with.  Can't wait until I have it completed.  This quilt will be for sale.
