My two sisters both have birthdays in November and just three days apart. This year I saw this  cute embroidery design and decided to make them both a pillow.

this is the first time I have made piping and probably
will be the last haha!
well it was pretty easy to make -- but apply to a pillow ? not so much.
this one is a little more on the simple side
but I think it is my favorite
I had fun making both of them and they were
really easy to put together
now to find some goodies to go along with them
I hope you are having a fun day doing the things you like!
until later - Carol

Quilts from Last Summer

Here are some pictures of the grandkids making their quilts last summer. We were in such a hurry
that I didn't get a picture of their final quilt so I snapped a picture when I took the AH quilt over.
Here is Mara long arm quilting her finished top
this is her first quilt that she has made 
she wanted to make a Paris quilt
and she did so well with this one!!
I think it is beautiful!
and this is Madison with her wonder woman quilt
this is the second quilt she has made
It turned out beautifully too!!
I had a fun time with the two girls and look forward to
more sewing time with them!!
I hope you are having a fun weekend!
until later - Carol

Audery Hephburn Quilt

Sewing with my grand-daughter is so much fun!!

every year she comes over to make a quilt and this year
she wanted to make a new one for her bed
she likes Audrey Hepburn
and we were lucky enough to find her in fabric
she is going to use black sheets with white polka dots
and here she is with her finished quilt
(I think both of them are so cute)

Another Finish

Here is another quilt that was long overdue to be finished

I am really happy with the way this one turned out
I am pretty sure I used a layer cake to make this quilt
but am not sure of the name of the fabric line
my new favorite quilting design is straight lines
I just love the look and texture it gives to a quilt
I am having so much fun getting these tops quilted.
I hope you have a wonderful day!!
until later - Carol
