and while that's a joy, the still-slightly-damp-carpet from yesterday's shampooing isn't! But fiddle-dee-dee, I'll sew anyway! And today it was orphan blocks *VBS*
I had 9 of these 9" 3-D bow tie blocks just laying around. I don't like making them well enough to make more! Now they are the foundation of a dolly quilt for a larger baby doll at the day care center! A quick backing, some yarn ties..and it's good to go! Jean was here on Sunday and made off with the little finished PINK one from last week..*VBS* When I was in town mailing birthday cards, I found that cute little scarecrow guy at the drugstore...I splurged *VBS* And when I got home....
...what could be prettier than a black cat sleeping on a halloween quilt??? The camera and flash didn't faze her at all...LOL Rainy days are for sleeping apparently..*S*
And more orphan blocks.....these from a batch that Gypsy Quilter(see sidebar) sent me. I've spent a day sewing up the 2.5" X 3.5" rectangles left from her Tote Bag quilt. They made 6 rows of 20 pieces each. Not sure if I will use them ALL like this, or maybe shorten some to fill in other places. But, I'm off to a good start on this one *VBS*This piece of orphan blocks work from last week, is also from Gypsy Quilters donation. I may incorporate this into the top, or not. I deliberately didn't lay them out together for you...LOL If I decide to combine them into one top.....it's be a surprise...right????
