Projects...

I thought I might as well show the progress so far...of my daughter's new project.


As you can see, it is not repeatedly making the same block.  She has a sketch we work from.  We call it our road map.  And she has it marked off in sections.  We will make each sections 3 1/2 times I think.  But that is not like making the same block 12, o 16, or 20 times, etc.


Look at the above...see how the the trees in that square of green--the little trees at the seam matches and lines up with the next green above it.  As if we were matching the design like you do with wallpaper.  We looked over all the rest we have sewn and did not see it happen anywhere else.
****************
Now, to me.

I had stopped working on these, but did make these the other day...I think there is at least one more laying in there that I forgot to add.  They are will be added to the pile of 4-patches below.


I have no idea how many I have made already.  I would like to get back in the mood to get some more made.  And decide how I am going to use them.


Then there are these.  They will be appliqued to a background fabric.


Notice there are no two of the same fabric.  There will be before I am done.  But I still have orange fabrics that I have not used.  If you will expand the view, you can see the edges are turned under by hand basting now.  I want to get back to making more, or else start getting these appliqued on to the background fabric.

Lorelei went back home today...they were going to go to Hobby Lobby.  As they were passing a what I assume was a Halloween display, she asked her mom, "How do you actually die from kicking the bucket?"

I am too lazy to go back and edit...but wanted to add that that black basting thread will be pulled out when the applique is done.

It looks like you had a very productive day sewing with your daughter. You both do beautiful work. Like mother, like daughter! I love the orange fabrics. You are making me want to make a quilt, or at least some four-squares.

I never stop being amazed that such intricate quilt patterns can be figured out. I just know I'd make a mess of it in no time at all. I especially like the Autumn leaves that you're planning on appliquing onto the background fabric.

Your orange leaves are gorgeous! You really have a gift for matching patterns and colors. Your daughter's quit is so professionally done! But as she has learned all this from you, I would expect nothing less.

Hello,

Wow, you and your daughter do beautiful work on the quilts. I love the trees, it looks hard to match up the pattern. The Autumn leaves are so pretty. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy new week ahead!

It is all beautiful. Love the petals in all the different patterns.

Ps...that next to last photo you asked about (with the flags) are brown pelicans.

Your seams are so STRAIGHT!!!! I am impressed.

The spot where the three trees match up perfectly...must be magic! (How's that for a ridiculous explanation?)
