I forgot to add to the first items that once I had the project finished and sandwiched with stabilizer and quilt batting that I added a fabric back to hid all the stiches of the embroidery work and then when I put the rick rack about the hoop with glue the back side looked just a finished and the front sides.
Had a panel of trains so cut them to size and sewed a border in colors to match the most prominent color in each piece. Backed them with stash of my Green Bay Packer material that I still have much of. These are tagged for the church sale held this last weekend. $10. but didn't sell sadly.
I liked Jenny's Thanksgiving quilt and I thought it would look great using my leftover fabric from a large quilt I made with Moda's Modern Neutrals, so I downloaded the pattern and got to work on 'Mt. Scrapmore'. I like how it turned out: a modern take on American tradition.
This is a very old printed panel that I picked up somewhere no doubt at a estate sale. I toyed with not doing anything with it for awhile or just using it on the back side of another quilt. Finally after finding some black & white checker material I decided to just finish it and made it a wall hanging. I have some fabric pens if I decide to do the family tree or I may just give it away to some of my older friends who would appreciate this sort of item. Yes if you look at my stuff I did use some of the checker stuff to make cloth pumpkins which are already posted.
I bought the Cutie Patootie panel because it reminded me of me. I couldn't work with it for years because it triggered too many uncomfortable feelings. I finally started working on it. I got it done. Then I cut it all apart. Then I put it back together. I added blue ribbons because they are one of the symbols for Child Abuse Prevention Awareness. I actually used fabric with monster eyes because there were definitely monsters. I added the characters from "Inside Out" because I had a lot of conflicting emotions. Something was missing though. I decided that all survivors deserved a medal. I created The Pinwheel Heart Medal of Honor. The Blue Pinwheel because blue pinwheel gardens are "planted" in April for National Child Abuse Prevention month. Honor because shame is such a challenge. I added Thriver because I aspire to be a thriver. I donated the finished quilt to Synergy Services.
This has been in my to do items for a bit. Decided it was time to finish and have it ready for this Christmas season. It is a printed panel. I just put together with light quilt batting and turned the right sides out and closed up small turn hole on the bottom. Hand sewed a sleeve on the back and had a rod that fit perfect. I quilted around the window and the holy family and angel only. Back is a dark sky blue with glitter that looks like millions of stars.
This was a panel and I have had it for awhile. I was trying to decide if I wanted to do each writing separate and make a wall photo or do a small quilt for the couch. I finally decided to do wall hanging when I received some nice wooden dowels. The items were off center but I added black to the edges and for the most part the turned out OK. Different framework on each. Made 5.
