I mentioned that I was working on the Pam Buda mini and jumped around a bit -- I decided to do 3 tiny courthouse steps blocks and I used Wendy Reed's potholder method of quilting. The pattern is called "War and Peace".
I machine quilted each little block and then bound them separately--I then sewed the 3 blocks together. I like how they turned out.
The back shows the pot holder method better since you can see the binding on all 3 sections.
I'm tempted to make some more of these blocks, sew them all together and I'll have a large enough small quilt to hang on the wall.
I finished the bag I wanted to make for the Hawaiia auction but I'm not happy with how it turned out -- I used a fusible "lining" that's too stiff so the bag doesn't relax enough to my liking.
It's fun to pick the variety of fabrics for the bag. I'm sure no one will care but it bothered me. I do like the fabrics and the coral lining (and I used mesh for the pockets, too). Can you see that gorgeous bird? I think I'm liking birds in quilts these days!
So I realized I have the materials to make a covered box using Mod Podge so I whipped up a box... covered an oval cardboard box using different Hawaiian prints. I'm not great at it but this one came out better than the first one I did at Christmas! vbg
I'll put both items into the auction. It's a fundraiser for local kids in Kauai so whatever it brings in is a win, right? I'll let you know how much I raised.
This one's theme was flip-flops!~
My doll quilt is in the mail heading to Maine. Once it's received, I'll post a picture of the finished project. I'm hoping she's happy with it.
