this and that Sunday

yellow

 

Hi guys!

I spent a little time in my sewing room yesterday and today working on projects for work and a little for myself.

I finished my employee blocks-of-the-month through March. This year I am doing two: 30’s reproduction, and Whimsicals.  I will post pic’s of a couple later.  I also am teaching an Amy Butler Nappy Bag  class in February so I needed to get that baby done and in the shop!!

Here are the outer and lining fabrics I am using:

Last night I finished quilting the valentine wall hanging, bound it, and hung it up! It is a little too bright and pink for my living room, hmmm maybe I should tea stain it?? Wonder how that would look?

Last week at work I spotted a new book that a co-worker, Penny,  had our boss Ruth order for her, and you KNOW I had to have it too!! That’s how it works around there. Someone gets some new pattern or book and we all have to have it too = )~   It’s called Yesterday’s Charm by Jo Morton.

It has the most awesome civil war reproduction quilts in it. I want to make every single one!!

I also remembered another heart quilt that I had started. It was all folded up in my TOPS box.  It’s Buggy Barn Heart Crazies.  It just needs borders and quilting and I can have it out for Valentines season.  Any volunteers to finish it up for me?  Hey I already did most of it, come on!! hehehe

    i think that your valentine wall quilt is super cute. the tea dying will knock it down a few notches though.

    Love all the photos. Your little Valentine quilt is very cute. I love it.
    The Jo quilt your going to make, I’ll have it on my blog later tonight. Go see. It was made at a quilt shop I visited here in Indiana. Love the bag your teaching too. You’ve been busy.

  4. Hey! I made the heart crazies quilt in yellow. I think it is on my side bar. I’ve been wishing over the Jo Morton book. I just love the photos. Sounds like you’ve been busy. I just sent the last little chick back to college so maybe I’ll get some sewing time this week.

  5. I love tea staining or overdying to lessen the brightness of a quilt. I say go for it.

    Also, please share some of your energy. You get soooo
    much done!

    Melissa,
    That book does look like a must have. I just might have to make a trip down to the quilt shop in town to see if they have it.
    Your heart quilt is really cute. Great purse too! The one things I miss the most from working in the quilt shop is teaching classes. Hope everyone has a great time making their purses.
    Can’t wait to see what you make next.
    Cindy
