You could have BLOWN ME OVER........
When my friend Bev came to see me while I was working at O'Sewpersonal this past week!
Bev with her QUILTED "Talkin' Turkey!"
She definitely surprised me with this!
Well, guess who got HIS "Talkin' Turkey" on the frame ready for quilting?????
I can't wait to have this one done!
After the quilt top was loaded, Bev started reminiscing about several of the green scraps
I used. Many of them came from her!
Scrap quilts definitely do tell a story of our lives!
I have been cutting 10" squares out of patriotic fabrics for a service project.
The group I belong to, Perky Piecers, is making honor flight quilts for veterans.
Have you all heard about the
project my blogging friend Lori at
Never in a million years did I think I would be making little dresses for little girls.
But, I have to say,blogging friends really do push you to do things you
never thought you would? Plus, the fact I really admire Lori for her
humanitarian efforts through the mission trips she has made.
These little dresses are SUPER DUPER easy to make.
You could have blown me over again after I made the first one
and realized how simple they are to make!
My personal goal is to send 10 dresses to Lori.
to make all of these dresses.
It has been the perfect opportunity to use up some large scale print fabrics
that don't play well in quilts. At least not in the quilts I make. ;-)
I timed myself, and I can make one of these dresses in around an hour.
I challenge you all to please take an hour of your time and help
a little girl in Bolivia.
Please go to Dresses for Bolivia for more information.
Here's hoping you have a great week sewing something!
Thanks for all of the encouragement!
