WOW March 26, 2014

This is just a quick post to show everyone the Elinor costume.  For the most part the fit is perfect but the fabric is polyester and I don't like the drape but it's ok.  I'm glad it's finished tomorrow I have to style the wig.

Have a great week,

WOW – March 19, 2014

I have finished a small project for my Cousins Birthday it’s about 14x12 I think it turned out nice the red binding ads a lot. 

I started a new project last night I’m making a graduation quilt for my youngest son’s girlfriend she is really into science and is going to college to be a veterinarian.  So I’m making her a quilt with germ’s bacteria and viruses.  I know it should warm and fussy.  I have three blocks started I have fused and marked for embroidery.  Still lots to do on this but I have a deadline of June so I need to get busy.

Last weekend was my guild quilt show and it was so much fun.  I love talking to people about quilting what a weekend.  I need to focus most of my attention this week on finishing my Elinor costume. Hope everyone has a great week.

WOW – March 12, 2014

Always hard to believe its Wednesday again but hear it is.  I have been working hard on quite a few projects and also getting ready for our guild quilt show.  My daughter and I are working on costumes for Merida and Queen Elinor from the Disney movie Brave.  We drove to Portland to visit our favorite fabric store The Mills End for fashion fabric. Chloe doesn’t have my pattern done yet but I have sewn up quite a few muslin mock-up’s it’s almost there.  She has started sewing her dress and it should have it done by Friday then we can get going on mine. 

Most of my efforts have been focused on finishing my Chateau Hexagon quilt. All I have to do now is sew the borders on and get it ready to quilt.


I also started the new Sue Spargo BOM I have the first two blocks done but can’t show them on my blog right now.  She has asked that we don’t post photo until the pattern is published.  I’s so fun and I can’t wait until I can show everyone. 

I also finished the quilting on my Dr. Who quilt now my family is fighting over who gets it.


Have a great week.
