Well Hello !! I am star struck these days. it's been a long time ,but I have been busy with various things. I haven't had enough time to post ,but today I thought I've got to post something because if I wait to long I will have to many things to show ,so a little at a time.
I have been working on some stars ..cutting and cutting and sewing and again cutting and some ironing in between. I keep pulling out more and more solids for a mix of pretty points that go around the center blocks which are some playful country scenes .
And the second part of the title quilt happy is because of this quilt that I had taken photos while making and my son's used my camera and uploaded all of my photos on there computer ,I am just not going to bother to retrieve them on too new stuff I quilted this by hand using high loft you ask why? because it was free .. you see a friend of mine down the street which owns a clothing store, had bought it to use as snow for her window display , which she never did so she gave it to me... a big roll of it ,so lucky me .
The pink rose is from a house coat that I cut up and used ,I love it in the corners , I just love to reuse fabric, I sometimes stare at the shirts that men wear walking passed my shop when I see pretty bright colors , I really got to stop it though,it is a bad habit.
I had taken a course in batik and we also did some stamping with leaves and I found this little scrap and stuck it in.
This top I had made last year and finally got it quilted again by hand I used cotton batting.
And now I am quilting this little one with high loft batting ,as also the first one ,I am not really trying to make the stitches close together as long as they are evenly spaced . Well my friends I am going to do some quilting now,have a nice day and happy crafting and quilting.
