|All decorated and it all works together!|
Continuing on from the past 2 posts, the Bright Day of Thanks Turkey ended up in the dining room/sewing room, right next to me!
|I had a panel hanging around and quickly put that together. I'm also very excited for Christmas and got our Christmas card ornaments made this year! I will post about those later!|
The 3rd installment for my Thanksgiving decorations took a decidedly (and surprisingly) traditional turn! While I was home a few weeks ago, my wonderful Aunt M gave me a giant bin full of fabrics to play with. Included in this bin are the fabrics for the new piece, "Give Thanks!" It's not my normal color pallet but I am kind'a in love with this one!
|"Give Thanks!" 24" x 26", pieced and applique with free-motion quilting. Original design by M. Rose Quilt Studios.|
I had a lot of fun quilting this one. I just went crazy free-motion quilting the background to the applique. But I made one BIG mistake by not pin basting enough! I thought, oh yeah, this is a small piece, I don't need to pin this while I quilt. Lesson learned - ALWAYS, always, always pin and/or baste your project!! Not to point out the problems, but you will notice that the boarders are not square. Ooops! I will ALWAYS pin my projects from now on! :-)
In response to emails I have received, Yes, these 3 Thanksgiving projects will all be printed patterns available soon. As soon as they are published, I will post links on here for you.
Have a wonderful, happy and blessed Thanksgiving!! I will check back in with you Lovelies in early December! Cheers!!
