The Week So Far

    Monday I spent several hours sandwiching this queen size quilt top.  I adopted blocks and fabric as a UFO without a pattern.   Sister Irene and I finished the top and now I am ready to start quilting. 

     Tuesday morning was the Day Bee meeting hosted by Lynne and Clara.  The snacks were delicious and the fellowship was special.  Sorry I took no photos to share.
When I came home, I started working on Barbie ( 11 ½” fashion doll ) clothes for the older granddaughter’s dolls.  I even worked on some during Bonnie’s Quilt Cam. 
 I made halter top, shorts,


and raincape. 

Years ago I made many, many Barbie doll clothes. Today there are easier techniques and I know better fabric choices.  I was also selective in choosing more simple patterns.

      Wednesday morning was church sew group.  I chose fabrics and started a Slice and Shuffle quilt from Karla Alexander’s book Stack the Deck.  I will share photos when I have more done. I think it is going to be fun.
The ladies also gave me some suggestions for my improv red, white and blue Lemoyne star.

Now to start some quilting before supper.
