|Stitching outlines for fillers.|
For this project, I've decided to leave the seam ripper alone (*gasp*) and ignore the little imperfections in my work. Getting into the flow of the quilting is more important to me than perfection on this piece.
|I'm still practicing control with tiny motifs. |
The circles are a quarter inch across.
Meet Amy! Amy is my older son's girlfriend. She's making her first stuffie...a dinosaur for her nephew.
It takes me about 15 hours to make a dino, start to finish. With two of us, it is going a bit faster, but not much. Stitching the feet and attaching the legs is very fiddly work. As Amy said, "This is more work than making a baby quilt!"
Oh, and just so he doesn't feel left out, here's my son, Brandt!
|Chillin' on a hot afternoon last summer|
Last night I made a couple of green modern slabs at our modern bee. It feels good to make a dent in my scraps. Next time I'm going for hot colours!

These are my Mom's mini-slabs. She is taking a different approach, planning a little garden-art piece. Aren't the spiders perfect for that?
Hope you are having a lovely week.
Oh! That reminds me...I won another linky party prize! My husband says I should go buy a lottery ticket and win that, too. Ha!
Melissa and Shanna host A Lovely Year of Finishes. Each participant commits to ONE finish every month, linking up once to set the goal, and once to show the finish. I am tickled to have won a pattern download from Bittersweet Designs!
I'm going to choose Dizzying Diamonds. Fun!
Thank you, Melissa & Shanna!
