When my sewing friends learned that Mom mom was making scrap quilts, they gave her enough scraps to keep her sewing for many years. The fabric from this baby quilt was one of the donations she received. It was one of the first things I quilted when I became a computer quilter.
I sewed the binding(edge) on at Judy’s today. Perfect for a little girl!
Cindy B. Is a prolific quilter. She likes small pieces,scrap quilts, and reproduction fabric. Once she starts, she keeps going on a project until finished. I love how she used dark blocks around the edge to create a “border”.
Judy inspires us to do our part to make the Piecemakers Quilt Guild the special group it is. The Christmas party of the guild is a dinner, organized by Judy, with a little bit of help from the rest of the Tuesday sewers. In this picture, the sewing elves have finished making stockings to keep the silverware, and dress up the table for the party.
We also made the most adorable shades for wine glasses. Votive candles go inside the glasses. I forgot to take a picture of them. They are really cute!
Our dining room table was set with my grandmother’s China, Neil’s mother’s silver and we enjoyed a delicious Turkey dinner on Thanksgiving.
Today, I ripped off the tablecloth, and replaced it with a cutting mat. Yes, Mom and I are back to sewing.
First we added the borders to a quilt we are making for Joel. Kitty and Joel selected the fabric. It is very manly. Mom and I think it needs a pop of color, however, we stuck with the fabrics we were given.
At the last meeting of the Brandon Quilt Guild Mom won 12 Christmas quilt squares. She decided to make them into table runners. We followed the 15 minute table runner pattern. Of course the title is a lie! But we finished THREE table runners. (Bogie likes them.) The weather was beautiful today. Hope it is nice for you!
We continued our scrap adventure with this top.
This is one of my favorite tops of our scrap series. Yes, we are being artistic and working in a series!
This quilt top started Mom Mom and my obsession with scrap quilts. Claudia (Birdies Mom) and Nancy taught a workshop for this design. I missed Dad cutting fabric for Mom for this quilt. Only Mom, or my friend Judy,would make a king size quilt out of 6 inch blocks.
Scraps are like gold to quilters. Yes, we love to take large pieces of fabric, cut them into small pieces, then sew them back into big pieces. Its even better to take the leftover pieces and sew them together.
Mom mom and I are still sewing up a storm. She started this quilt while teaching a neighbor at Calvary Homes to quilt. This is our latest finish.
