Quilting.... using up my fabrics

While my initial goal was to use up some of my fabrics and make preemie quilts for Brenner Children's hospital, it's also been a chance for me to practice my free motion quilting.  It's been fun sewing again and I hope someone on the receiving end will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.  Not sure if you can click on them to make them bigger.                               This one was small samples of fabric, about 8" that I pieced together with yellow to form this baby quilt.
This one was a panel of little frogs with a yellow strip.  Rather than cutting it off I decided to try my hand a writing with my sewing machine on the side, the same quote as around the frogs.

This was a small panel in the middle.  I had to add yellow on the sides and turquoise at top and bottom.  Happened to have 3 little cats I could cut out and applique to stretch out the design.

My Blog

May, 2009 when I started the blog.

It's still a learning experience. If you are ever looking for a retired stamp set, ask me, I might have it and let it go.

As a follower you'll get emails when I post things which I tend to do in batches, once or twice a month. For class dates go to my Stampin Up events calendar: http://www.joanlowder.stampinup.net/

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate all comments.
