Another quilt...

...when, oh when will I get to finish a UFO!!!

Maybe never, because...

I stopped working on
Pulled out a floral from my stash (which I thought was ugly)
and made a fabric purchase (just a small one)
And started working on
I'm thinking of it as a more modern looking
Wedding Ring quilt for my nephew who is getting
married in August!

Happy Sewing!

A Mother's Sew Day!

Yup, on Mother's Day my husband thinks I should do whatever I want.
Sew, that's what I did!
I pulled out a UFO and worked on it a little...
now this really only needs the borders!
The pattern is called Hanging Gardens (cannot remember the designer).
Started about 3 years ago...
Fabric line is Sanctuary by 3 Sisters for Moda.
The border in the pattern is a Seminole pieced border.
I will be doing a piano key border with the rest
of the jelly roll that was not used in the top.

Last week was the baby shower.
My niece loved the quilt.
It was recommended by two of the instructors at NEQF to wash gift quilts prior to giving them.
I did and was very pleased with the look of it!
Sorry these photos do not show off my free motion flowers!
They came out great and I was super happy with the final results!

I also made some burp cloths...I call them Burpies!
Sew much fun to make and add little touches to them.
My favorites are the pink polka dots and the black with the pink flowers!

In addition to the UFO that I started to work on again, this was a week of pulling out fabrics I think I might never use and making pillow cases for my house.
I don't know why but there never seems to be enough of them.
So far I have made 3 pair.

Hope your Mother's Day was Sew nice!
