A little sewing........

Yesterday I was with cousins for a large part of the day and we had so much fun catching up on each others' lives.  Last night I sewed 5 rows of my green quilt so I will have something to show my class today.  I may get a couple more rows sewn on this morning before I leave for class.

How nice you had such a good time with family. And boy oh boy these fabrics look magical all lined up on the machine like this! What a great photo. Have a great class. :) *karendianne.

Always good to meet up with family. Time flies by quickly. And you also got some sewing in!!

Such a pretty quilt. Of course green is my favorite color. I'd love to have the energy to make one.

these greens are so neat. I envy you being close to your cousins - I never was and we all seemed to be spread quite apart in age. Only two near my age but one was in Mississippi and the other was on the other side WI so rarely saw either.

Those fabrics are breathtaking together. I've made one TATW using Blanche Young's method (actually hope to get it on friend's Gammill this w/e). I'm curious -- do you pin at every intersection (I do and it takes so much time but I like my seams to match exactly). Just curious.

Wow. Reading your blog has certainly been an education in fabric placement, and this quilt shows that in spades. The close-up picture shows it, but when you view the picture as as smaller thumbnail, it REALLY makes it obvious. Bravo!

Your choice of fabrics is just divine! Love how it's all coming out. Wonderful you live close to a cousin to have a playdate!

Oh my gosh Wanda ! The valentine you showed us yesterday is adorable. And the fabric's on the back of the valentine are gorgeous.

The closeup of fabrics on the piece you are working on for Trip Around the World is stunning. I am anxious to see that one complete.

Love the pic you shared...that corner looks like a coral reef...or something under the ocean anyway...just lovely!

Sue said...

Beautiful colors in this one! Sigh, all your quilts are so beautiful.

Theresa said...

Do you fussy cut any of those pieces, Wanda? Seems like you get just the right piece.

Up close and personal it is even prettier. Those fabrics just dance together!

I love getting together with my cousins too. I have even gotten one interested in quilting. We meet at Chick Fila every week.

Love all your quilts but have a real weakness for this green/teal TATW. Wish you were closer so I could take one of your workshops.

Rhonda said...

Did I mention that green is my all time favorite color....LOL
