|Photography challenge for "Frosted" - pineapple and coconut cake|
|One of my all time faves of my all time faves|
Hubs has an amazing eye for photography and has been teaching me some about composition and shadows, which has been very helpful for my challenges this week! (Maybe soon I can get Hubs to share some of his great work...)
|Moon - Space|
|Prompt was "Daily Favorite"|
|Texture - "Quilted Landscape"|
I belong to a wonderful and active quit guild, the Proper Bostonian Quilters, who are always doing some sort of charitable sewing. This week was my turn to contribute - pillowcases using the "hot-dog" method!
|Its fun picking fabrics for teens!|
There have been so many babies born among our friends - so happy and bustling - and more being announced all the time. It's almost impossible to keep up with quilts for each one, so I've started making "Grow with me" charts. Essentially a long table runner that hangs on the wall with lines for kids to get measured against! And since many of our friends are in a transient part of their life, these charts can travel with them! It can also be used for all kids, not just one - or customized for a one and only. Super simple and so many ways to be creative!
|"Watch me sprout and grow!"|
I also made an orange peel quilt for Hubs' boss, who just had their first - and like a noob, I forgot to take completed pictures of the quilt. Just know it was terribly cute!
In a change of pace, I took time last week to do some hand work. I have a growing love for English Paper Piecing and taking a more hands-on approach. This little table runner was made with a charm pack for the top and 1 yard cut into 5" squares for the back. Tutorial...?
This week - print making and Project Quilting 7.3!
Cheers and happy stitching!
