If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Ok, Maybe One or Two More?

I've enlarged each design 150% on my printed. It takes several repositions to get all the parts and then loads of cutting and taping things back together.
There are at least two Veterans at our Seniors Center who served in the Army and Air Force so I decided to make those two seals especially for them. I can easily quilt these on my Janome because they aren't going to be any bigger than 25 inches each.
After this I'm really finished.....no.....REALLY!!!
Below are some of the stages to making the seals. I'll show the finished quilts in a lager post.


I use dinner plates, pizza pans, skillets and anything else that will lend me a perfect circle. Mr. Cowboy just shakes his head but wisely says nothing.
I will stitch all the pieces down before quilting everything.
In a couple of previous posts, someone asked about the types of fabric adhesives I use. I love Steam-a-Seam Lite but it's sometimes hard to find so I'm using Heat-N-Bond Lite at the moment. When quilting everything together I use either the 505 Spray or Loctite Spray Adhesive (the Loctite is found at JoAnn's).

I have used some errrr---interesting tools to make shapes for quilts. If Mr Cowboy says anything just tell him that you could buy some expensive tools that would do the same thing - but serve no other purpose.

It’s always so much fun to see these come together. Ingenuity is the best part of creativity. Multi use items are the best!!!!

Very nice! Finding and using "other" things that serve the purpose is fun - and much cheaper. "They" could always make a quilting "tool" to do the same thing - but as soon as they add the word "quilting" to the product - the price seems to automatically triple - LOL - ;))

I'm with you on using anything round I can find in the house that fits the size I want. Whatever works! I'm interested in see how the seals come together - how nice of you to create them for the veterans.


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