There is nothing like sewing along with a cheerleader!! :) She picked quilting designs and stood and watched in amazement as I quilted her cushion cover. I think she is happy with it:
|Pleased as punch ;)|
|More butterflies :) And the last little bit of that awesome spotted batik that I used on her butterfly pillow.|
|Ribbon candy in the spotted batik and the border got a design ala Kathleen. She uses this design a lot - and now I know why! LOVE! :)|
|Scribble quilting in the text print with YLI nylon thread. Love the effect of mashing down that part but totally leaving the fabric as the star :)|
|On more . . . the excitement of being the quilt holder is fading fast at this point!|
And the back:
|I had just enough of the butterfly fabric to sew it together for the back of the pillow. It looks like the seams don't line up on the two sides, but they do. . . if you look towards the bottom you can see it is gaping open :)|
|"Are you kidding me?? How many pictures do you need???" LOL OK, she didn't really say that but when I looked at this picture, I think that's exactly what she was thinking :D|
We had a week filled with sewing, swimming and lunching :) We had lunch with Cally's Jr. High teacher who retired after the last school year. So much fun to spend some time with her and catch up! She also got to have a visit with the wonderful woman who cut her hair for years. Jody still cuts my hair so I get to see her regularly but Cally has not seen her in a very long time. She was very excited to get to spend some time with her as well.
Now, it is back to getting that Q3 list done! Can I just say that the Q4 list has started and is growing? LOL I have Sparkle Punch all cut out and the first blocks sewn. I think this one is going to take a little time... lots of sew, cut, iron, sew, cut, iron, cut action going on with each block. And there are a lot of blocks! I'll do a separate post on my progress soon.
Linking up with Finish It Up Friday over at Crazy Mom Quilts. There is never a shortage of quilty inspiration over there so, if you haven't already, check it out!
Until next time, keep on quilting!
