Much To Share

Hello everyone. It's great to be back but I hated to leave all my "wacky" friends because we were having such an astonishingly fun time. Want to see what went on????? Well let's take a stroll through all the happenings. I don't know it everything will fit....I've only just started packing my Jeep. Oh dear, time to rearrange things.
Our "wacky" project for this week was to make a patriotic quilt for one of the "Fisher House" locations near Dallas. So I made another block from the "Block Tool" book as soon as I arrived at DC.
We were told by Kathy that we needed more blocks.......so made two more blocks. That Block Tool is really handy.
My first lettering on a block......this was hair-raising because I actually had to concentrate.....lol.....pivot the design with lots of help from my friends and make sure I use the right stabilizer. My fingers were crossed the whole time......LOL....To read more about "Fisher House" go to Kathy's blog. Her link is above is pic.

Kathleen had been working on this eagle at home and brought it with no real idea of what she wanted to do with it. She kindly donated it for the Fisher House center and worked her little fingers to the bone to sew a border around it and get it all squared up. I think she did a great job.....don't you! Here's the results of our efforts. Mind you, it's not sewn together or in any specific order yet, but we were so happy with the way it turned out. Please leave a comment and let us know how you feel and give suggestions for a border or borders. We'd love to hear from you.
Everyone had their embroidery machines with them as well as sewing machines. I just love to sew while the Janome stitches out something wonderful.....Look at the Covered Wagon design that I stitched out. WOW! It looks like a charcoal drawing doesn't it? I'd telling you I could hardly take my eyes off the whole process.
I also played around with a redwork Christmas Star......We ate lots, laughed hard and often and had a great time. And we've already begun plans for our next big sew-in.....Stay tuned folks!

Looks like all kinds of sewing was going on! Great job on the Fisher House quilt. I can't tell you how much I am enjoying watching you grow and learn on your embroidery machine. Excellent!

Wow! What good work you all did on the Fisher House quilt! As it is in the photo it looks great and with just some binding or even a wide border it would look good. I've been following your efforts on embroidery on the machine and your work looks great! Bravo!

hugs,
heidi

fpr the borders I would contine with 4 patches or 9 patches in the colors of the quilt - but all those blocks look wonderful. I love your red work star also
you've been quite busy....
welcome back

Don't count the days, make the days count!
