Hello Everyone,

I was asked if I knew how to make teddy bears... A memory bear actually. Well, to be honest, I never made a teddy bear before...  So, I thought it might be time to try.  I had some leftover material from this unicorn quilt I made, so I decided to try it.  

Here is the unicorn quilt I made...
Here is the little teddy bear all laid out..
Started to sew & stuff him..
Here it is all done :-)
I think it came out pretty darn good 
for the first time making one...
I love it!!!

Thank you for stopping by :-)

Fairy Tale Quilt

Hello Everyone,

I did a little fairy tale embroidering on a quilt...  Each block has a different fairy tale saying on it.  The blocks took about an hour to create.  The saying are so cute too.
I love the way it turned out...

Below is the label I made for it...

Hello Everyone,

I would like to share one of my quilt projects with you, that has been keeping me busy.

This quilt below is for my best friend Maryann from high school.  Maryann is the little garden girl on this quilt...  You see, she is a farmer girl.  One of the farmer girls at the Filanowski Farm here in Milford.  If you haven't been to Filanowski Farm, you really should check them out. They have Everything and you cannot beat their prices.

I used the Primo plaids chalk & timber flannel fabrics from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.  I also embroidered the little garden girls and the farm scenes to put on each block.  I laid it out first, light and dark...

I sewed it all together and quilted it with the Field of Flowers pattern.  Thought that was perfect for a garden farmer girl.  Love the way it looks. 
Here I am laying out the embroidery pictures to be sewn on.
Sewing them on...
Now that it's all sewn together - I'm adding the binding. 
I have embroidered the label and now it's

The 1930's Quilt

Hello Friends,

This past weekend I went to a quilt show in New London with a couple of the quilt club girls and came across a VERY old find. Quilt squares from the 1930's and a Civil War label.  Some of the blocks are tattered and stained, but I will do my best to bring them back to life and turn them into a  beautiful quilt. These antique quilt squares were made with small scraps of unique fabric from the depression era.  What I plan to do is find some 1930's reproduction fabric to turn these squares into the quilt it should have been years ago!

There was one 1930's Dresden among my finds...

Below is the Civil War label

1930's Dresden...

I can't wait to get started on this beauty.
