I've been gone, but I hope not forgotten.
It's been very quiet here at More Stars in Comanche, but I have certainly been keeping up with all of you, and I have been busy in the sewing room. I'll get you caught up with all of my projects so this post has a bunch of pictures.
Most of the pictures are from my quilt guild meetings.
I've done some collage art getting ready to share the how to's with my quilt guild members in November.
Remember Quiltville's Grand Illusion 2014 Winter Mystery Quilt ? This is my version of it, back from the quilter's house....I bound it by hand (something I'm not fond of doing)
Then in August I went to a quilt retreat with these lovely ladies.
This is the quilt pattern we all made at the retreat. Even though we all had the same fabrics, each quilt looked very different. I intend to straight line quilt this myself some time soon.
A precious woman and her daughter sat across the table from me....sewing curves was a challenge for some....once in a while the woman would look over at her daughter and say
" Is this a right brain activity?"
So out of the left over fabrics I made a wall hanging called "Right Brain"...lots of straight line quilting, yoyo's and vintage buttons. Picture quality is not good I know...maybe better ones someday.
And one called "Left Brain". I used lots of fun stitches that are on my Janome and some hand quilting. I quilted it in a circular design.
This is a BOM that I participated in at
Quilts With a Heart Quilt Group in 2014.
It's called Prairie Rose, and was designed by The Quilted Moose
I was given 3, shall we say vintage (all torn up) Southern Belle quilt blocks, (the brown, blue and white, and greenish ones) and asked to applique the edges down. I ended up making three extra blocks (the pink, red and aqua ones) and decided to make the quilt for the lady. This quilt and the ones the other lady made were auctioned off in a craft sale with the proceeds going to help our local nursing home.
This is 5 of the 10 or so charity baby quilts I've made....just trying to use up fabric that's been in my possession for WAY TOO LONG
This is my TV quilt. I made it from Edyta Sitar's "Jelly Bean" fabrics and the
pattern is Rail Fence from Missouri Star Quilt.
That's it for the most part....! I'm glad you stopped in ! I missed you all !
God bless you
