i still  have a bit of the binding to hand stitch ~ my favorite part

a perfect binding , a pieced flannel back plus a stamped  label equals another great finish xo more info here

this week so far xo



month three liberty club from duckadilly ~ summer splash ~  i am in love !

i am on a duct tape roll ~ i use  window plastic with vis a vis pens for trying out machine quilting designs ~ i replaced the old blue painters tape  with this fun flower design xo

and i made a few of these design boards with duct tape  [lots of fun designs on sale 2 for one at joannes ] this idea was totally inspired by lori holt from beeinmybonnet she uses fabric binding and glue gun but the duct tape worked great too.
       
and i finished up sheri's quilt w ripples by anne bright...love this pattern it goes so well with the seashells in the backround fabric as well as all this wonderful blue xo

and this fun ironing board cover made a very fun gift for a friend recovering from foot surgery ....found at marshalls xo
      happy tuesday xo pam

carnaby street bunting , my featherweight esther and something very scrumptious



finished up a pat bravo carnaby street bunting kit that i got at the portland spring 2013 quilt market....not sure what i was waiting for cuz it was super easy and it is super cute xo

spent yesterday afternoon  at the  keepsake featherweight club  with the wonderful joyce teaching and my new/old friends including  nancy  who just so happens to be a featherweight  expert/queen ~ lucky for us we are learning a lot more  history on the fabulous featherweight ... nancy loves to restore and collect them, and she always does a project or two on each machine before selling them...my featherweight's name is esther and she was made in britain in 1959 and i love her xo



and we made this fun easy pillow project for july 4th xo
and i just finished machine quilting christi's beautiful bonnie and camille scrumptious quilt with rosie by jodi beamish


this fabric really is scrumptious right? and rosie really is perfect for it xo
