There are days I miss you
most of all…
It was your time to go,
but the pain that I have lost you
cannot be eased…
I hear your voice, your laughter
dear big sis,
will live in my heart
I remeber when
I was a kid
my eyes were bigger than my stomach….
the same applies to these UFOs.
Because these blocks were bigger
(and some rows were finished…)
than these ones…..
I finally finished sewing them first!
Now it’s all set for quilting.
The recipient already saw it.
His smile made my day.
This kind of reward makes quilters happy!
The pattern for this quilt is from Julie , Jaybird Quilts
I love her patterns!
It’s been terribly hot, sticky, and all.
Some people love it, I belong to those who does not really enjoy it….(Unless I were at the beach….)
A bit cooler would be just fine, I would sleep better, my brain would work better….
Quilting in the morning, while it was not so hot,
I got both minis finished,
Finally, the binding,
I hear some UFOs calling me,
we’ll have a little talk.
I’ve got some patterns as presents and I’ve also bought some patterns for mini quilts, though I know that “mini” does not always mean you can get it done in a jiffy.
Here are some I’d like to make:
And then I started!
Red, orange, and yellow pallet for the mini Firelight Lane.
Little tiny blocks, 2” X 2”,
row by row,
The little top is sewn,
I started another one,
a paper piecing one,
pattern from quietplay.blogspot.com.au
Yes, this one was not among my first choices!
But it just caught my eyes…
in a blue sea.
And the next step,
definitely quilting both!
Have a lovely and creative week!
The binding is sewn, it is washed, it smells fresh and it feels cuddly, and the best of all, it’s FINISHED!! What a good feeling.
This top was made a while ago, it’s a pattern called Diamond Double, CozyQuilt Designs, a nice one to sew. I used the rest of some batik Jelly Roll I had, and that is what I was a bit worried about. I always pre-wash my fabrics, but that’s not possible with strips. What about the dark blues and turquoise? Are these color-fast? To minimize riscs I used these tissues that absorb color, no idea how it works, but i works like magic!
Have a lovely time sewing!
