The little treat boxes were filled with sugary sweets!
I fell for this quilt and since I have a new embroidery machine I know that I have to make it I love it.
The ladies skirts are vintage hankies, see their sweet pantaloons? I have quite a few vintage hankies..........
This quilter made several of these quilts, little raw edged scraps stiched to a plain background, what a great idea! She says that they are even more effective after laundering when the raw edges fray.
A few weeks ago I showed one of my D9P baby quilts to my Wednesday group and now they are on a roll and producing D9P's like crazy! Click on D9P to see a quick little sample of the basic block construction.I think these are for grandchildren ........
and great grandchildren!
A scrappier version of D9P. There are other ways to set these blocks see webshots here .A beautiful south-western looking design, a great quilt for a guy I think, nice straight lines and a simple but graphic setting. The light color seems to sparkle.
While I was in the "brain dead" zone on Saturday night, and when I had run out of crushed walnut shells for the pin cushions, I took some left over batting scraps and using more selvedges made these pot holders!
Simply foundation pieced to the batting scraps, then I added a layer of Insulbrite & bound them with- you guessed it- more selvedges. I know, you think I'm crazy too!
