It took all day to do all the sewing, so I only had a few minutes to devote to binding a comfort quilt for the day guild. Mr Wazoo did the quilting for me, and it looks really nice.
|Ladies in the guild (including yours truly) made pink and white blocks used in comfort quilts for members fighting breast cancer.|
|Mr W chose the entwined hearts panto for the quilting.|
|Here's the back. The binding is in the same fabric. I applied it before quitting for the day, and did the hand sewing in the evening after supper. Its done and ready to give to a deserving member.|
|Its a trip around the world quilt, and some of the 'roads' are full of potholes!|
|Like this one.|
|Here are a few of the replacements I have sewn in so far.|
|This is the whole magilla. Ooh la la! Its a big one.|
Today, I went back to customer work, by planning and sewing the blocks from clothing that I made last week. I have to make three quilts for the family, each one has a special shirt in it. The first one has two smaller squares that are dear to the customer, the other two have quite large focal point shirts.
|Here are the blocks on the design wall for the first quilt.|
|Here it is, all sewn up and the borders on.|
|The black and red squares are the focal ones.|
|I used the button plackets and labels on the body of the quilt, and the pockets and his jeans in the borders.|
|The second quilt is now arranged on the design wall, with the car block being the focal point.|
And maybe I'll have a minute or two to plan the quilting for my rat quilt. We'll see what happens!
