WIP - April 6, 2011

Completed Projects
:-(  nada ...well I did successfully stitch a quilt yesterday in 'unregulated' mode, but this isn't considered a personal project, but it is a personal skill that I want to improve. I often overrun my stitch regulator and have decided I need to gain enough confidence to do stipples and all-over freemotion patterns in an unregulated mode so that I can go faster. This was a practice quilt sent to me by a group that my mom leads out with in Arizona called 'Bags of Love'. They make a cloth bag and include age and gender appropriate items, including a quilt and provide them to CPS when children are removed from homes, often meth homes, so they don't have anything. This 'bag of love' has a label on it that says 'My Very Own' and provides something to the child that they really can call 'my very own'. I did stop and put on the regulator to do the motif of the car in the panel print. If you are just reading my blog for the first time, I keep track of my quilting business on and you can check out the website at

Oddie's Wild Nature - found some in progress pictures that I didn't post last week. The California Poppies are from a McKenna Ryan pattern. The long-horn sheep are from a June Jaeger pattern and I chose fabrics based on how my husband and I always see them in the gorge--very disguised on the hill. These are all fused applique and I'm putting them into a collage type quilt of different blocks. Each block chosen based on scenes, locations, images from our travels. The stripes in the back ground are just the lawn chair HA!
