These are Lazy Girl Book Covers. You can't believe how fast these are to make. I made both of these in about an hour. The one on the left is the original size...the one on the right with the monogram is for a larger book. That's for a birthday present I need for tomorrow.
These are the first three blocks of the Saturday Sampler Club. The first saturday of each month we take our finished block to show and pick up the next months block. This sampler started in December and will finish in August. In november we'll have a show and tell of the quilts done with these blocks. These are being done in Retro 30's reproduction fabrics.
These three blocks are the challenge blocks for the Saturday Sampler. Each month we are given a paper with just an outline of the block on it.... we need to figure out how to make the block ourselves.... This is really fun and makes you think.
This months embroidery club is Tuesday. We'll be doing some 3 dimensional embroidery. These are the samples of our club projects this month.... the fence and flowers are done using puffy foam for a raised look.... the sunbonnet girl has a skirt and 3 underskirts that are done on bridal tulle and organza and hang loose... the ribbons are done flat in the hoop and then using a thin wire or thread are made into ribbons for packages or hair bows or whatevers....
This is my favorite table topper pattern.......... the top two are just the tops...they have to be batted and quilted... the bottom one is finished. The middle one is made from Thimbleberries fabrics so I'll be able to use it for show and tell in April.... I'll also be able to use the small book cover for show and tell cuz that's made from thimbleberries stuff also..... The bottom one is made from kitchen prints... it's kinda hard to tell the patterns....
I took the thimbleberries heart pattern and used some scraps that were laying around and made a set of placemats. Placemats and another favorite of mine.... they are second to table toppers and table runners.
At some point I need to figure out how to rotate these pictures when i load them lol This is a table runner I did using the quilt as you go method... when you are done stitching the top... all you need to do is add the binding.... the quilting part is done..... there will be more of these I'm sure.
I guess that's about it for this week. I have a few WIP's going on and hopefully they will be done by next week. I'm making some baby booties for a baby shower in march....so I'll up load those when they are done... I'm also doing some burps and some crib pads. They'll be posted as I finish them. I'm always knitting dishcloths too! lol I have some to finish....and I'll get those posted also.
Have a wonderful week........
