July Wall Hanging

This wall hanging is another one of Kim Schaefer's Calendar Quilt patterns. A quick little quilt to make in a day. I used variegated thread in shades of red, white and blue to quilt the top. I also added a few quilted stars here and there, as well as star shaped buttons to the flower centers.

Blooms Wall Hanging....

This wall hanging is called "Blooms". It's a pattern we received at our Sweet Pickins Club meeting. I changed it a little by adding the fabric flowers I made for the center blocks. I also added buttons for a little more color. I played around with some free motion quilting in the squares and did meandering quilting for the remainder. This was a fun and easy mini quilt. John said he'd make me a hanger for it so hopefully it will be on a wall soon.

Dolphin and Horse Pillows

Front and back of the dolphin bed pillow.....
Front and backs of the two horse pillows......

Made these throw pillows for Kierstin and Haley using some panels and left over fabric from the bed quilts I'd previously made for them. Kierstin's is the dolphin pillow and Haley's are the smaller horse pillows. I actually used my new Bernina Serger machine to do most of the piecing. I did some quilting on Kierstin's pillow, but didn't on Haley's pillows since they were small.

Stitch Recipe Pillow

Just finished this pillow. It's called the "Stitch Recipe Pillow" and shows off some of the Bernina sewing machine decorative stitches. I let Mom fill the pillow and stitch it closed. It's now sitting on our couch.

PWC trailer....

John made some adjustments to his PWC trailer so he could use his lawn tractor to put it in and take it out of the lake. Maybe he could also mow the neighbor's beach while moving it out of the lake. Actually he spent the next two days weeding our beach. Looks good now.
