Hi all!! Above...sigh...is a project, a UFO about ten years old. It is circles, hand cut by me, then machine stitched onto backgrounds. Think raggedy quilt! The edges are raw, so when it is washed, it will fray just so nicely. I can't imagine where I got these fabrics...I must have used most of them up, because they are not in my general stash anymore. I finished the last 20 blocks today...ZOOMM!! It was great fun to sew circles onto the backgrounds... (wonder why I used 3 different backgrounds? ) Probably did not have enough of one fabric, that is the usual story. To make things more a mystery...I made three different sizes of blocks! why??
Then after a good press with a shot of steam...cut them into fourths. Then let the playing begin! I made bulls eyes...and wiggly lines...and just had a general good time messing with the blocks. I have a ton of blocks! At least two big quilts worth...wonder what I was thinking, cutting out all those circles...with scissors!
Wiggles....Too much open space for me...hmmmmmm
Anyway, I had only 20 of the littlest blocks, so Rosie asked me to make her a doggy quilt. And I did...machine quilting it myself! I am such a terrible machine quilter, but this is better than some I have done.
Washed and puckered up! This little quilt ended up in Rosie the poodle's bed for her to snuggle with.
A finish! A mug mat...I have been admiring all yours all over blog land, so made one out of scraps from cutting step two of Bonnie's mystery. And machine quilted it too!! amazing.... I did finish step two of the mystery quilt from Quiltville...how are you doing??
Finish number two! This will be going in the mail soon...an angel to watch over a dear friend! This one is hand quilted and hand appliqued.
And finish number 3! A big hot pad, made of strings..little ones, trimmings really, sprayed with starch, pressed down and quilted over...makes the best hot pad!
Have a great day, all!!!
