Eye Candy

Well I have been working so I thought I would post a few pics of what I have been doing.

This is Billie's, I love the fabrics in this one. I wouldn't care if this one was never picked up. This is for her daughter and I heard that her daughter likes butterflies so I meandered them in. plain and simple but hen with that fabric you didn't need to much!
Lee brought this one to me. A friend of hers did this one and found out she had late stages of cancer. So we hurried on this one so the woman could see it done and give it to whomever she had planned on. I really love doing this one. I think that is probably my best time ot the machine when I can just 'do it'.


This is a bag challenge on one of my Yahoo groups. Stacy sent me this bag of floral fabrics. Way out of my comfort zone! There was lots of the floral green and small amounts of the fuchsia,  cream/fuchsia mix,dark green and the beige. I used this ne (to me) technique, take a four patch and cut it up into a 9 patch. I used all the fuchsia  set them on point but it wasn't big enough go I then di the same thing with the cream/fuchsia mix. It is now 71 x 71 so it will make a nice couch throw. I was to have this back to her the 1st of Aug but I begged her to keep it till later this week when I have to give class demo on this technique again. I really like it now that I have it done and believe that the beige border just 'makes' it.

On pne of my Yahoo groups we did a 30's sampler swap. Only 7 entered it so to make a nice size sampler we all did 3 blocks. Here are 2 of mine the 3rd one is needle turned appliqued double fans. Yep I know I need to take a pic of it. I didn't take a pic of all of them before I sent them off to new owners but I do have mine. I never really liked the 30's repro fabric but it is growing on me.

Now this is mine. I did something for me. I have had this baby quilt pieced for about a year or maybe more. I decided that I needed to do something for me to get some UFO's out of the way. This quilt was made with the too called X Block. If you don't have it get it! It is great the designs you can make with it. The border pieces are from the left overs of the center. In this pic I don't have the binding down but it is done now and I just need to add a label.

This was done by Margie for her brother. He is a Harley rider and the fabrics state that. The skull and cross bone panto was a good fit for this one. She called to tell me how much he loved it.

Well that is about it for now.
