Machine Quilting Day 9

Posted by Ruth on 27 February 2013 | 0 Comments

Tags:

Day 9 of our machine quilting by inspiration. Last week I mentioned making larger designs for a border or over all design - an iris was the subject. This week I am continuing on with that same thought using a rose leaf instead.

I've been trying to eat healthy, well I usually do but probably not as healthy as I should. I've decided I really should eat more fruit and vegetables. Today I want to share with you one of my favorite veggies, stuffed eggplant. I added a little salad on the side.

Purple Dawn jigsaw

I thought Purple Dawn would make a challenging jigsaw. Did you know you can change the cut? I set it on 240 piece classic cut for an extra challenge. Make it smaller if you wish.

Machine Quilting Day 8

Tags:

For my machine quilting days so far, I've been working with mainly fill-in quilting stitches. For the next two weeks, I want to use a more open design which could be developed into an overall quilting design or border design.

Patchwork Quilt - stepping stone

Posted by Ruth on 19 February 2013 | 0 Comments

Stepping Stones was a quilt I put together as a custom made job for a customer. It didn't have the printed blocks in it as I have in the photo below. It was just made in blue and yellow squares. Very easy to make with large pieces.

Time flies

Wasn't it just the other day that I was holding my first born in my arms? Yep, just 30 years ago today, but it seems not so long ago. She is the eldest of my four children and we have experienced many happy times as she grew up, along with some trying times as well.

free applique

Posted by on 16 February 2013 | 0 Comments

How much fun is this? A few years ago, Margaret enrolled in my free online class. Instead of making the book cover, she used the applique to make panels (one on the front and one on the back) for a purse.
