Finally we had a good soaking of rain. Everything was looking so stressed outside. Watering from the hose is nothing like a little rain.
I was having some fun today in the quilt room and decided to make a little mini-quilt from the book “Bits and Pieces” by Karen Costello Soltys. I have done a couple little quilts for gifts out of the book before. It is the best book, well worth buying.
Here is my “Vintage Bow Ties”Now, my plan is to put a really tiny embroidery in the blue blocks, have not decided what it will be. The blocks are only 3”x3”, the entire quilt is only 15 1/2”x 18 1/2”. I am also going to hand quilt this one. I miss hand quilting.
The strawberries and the crock block I drew myself and the Angel and the Eagle I found in the mountain of embroidery patterns in my quilt room. Unfortunately, a lot of my embroideries are not labeled where I got them so I will have to find the designers of them and get back to you. I will try to post them when I finish the other blocks.
Nothing else exciting going on here. We had a nice low key day, enjoyed not going anywhere and listening to the thunder and rain. Hope you were able to sneak a little sewing, quilting, or stitching done today!
