Sew & Tell is our weekly sharing thread. Tell us what you've finished, what you're working on- we'll cheer you on!

I had to change the date- first I put that it was 4-3-13! Who can believer it's May, and that our Midwestern friends are having such ridiculous weather!
Last weekend I made a bunch of burp diapers, and mailed some to my DD in Seattle. My girlfriend came over and put a quilt up on the HQ, so I helped her with the setup.

Who's sewing?

One more little (8 1/2" x 11 3/4") quilt for AAQI for me. The blocks are called "Thunder & Ligntning" so that's what I named the quilt. Roll Eyes

Another lovely mini Bozie!

Last year I decided to uncover the sewing machine and make something. When I saw Sarah Vedeler's BOM for The Quilt Show I fell in love with it! So I bought a kit, decided in November that it was big enough, and have finally finished quilting it (I think). Anyway the binding is on, and my error in one of the big corners (bias stretched) doesn't show when it's lying on the bed so I can live with it!

Wow! That's an amazing BOM! I've never seen anything like it. Think I'll look it up. Is it batiks?

Sewing outdoor curtains out of screening material, additional curtain for sailcloth extension, placemats for summer dining using the homedecor samples on sale at Joanne's. So glad this fabric shop is connected with HGTV! Finishing up a baby quilt for a friend's newest granddaughter.

No, the fabrics are all from Red Rooster's Buttons and Blooms line - no batiks at all! The pattern name is Sedona Star, there are some beautiful examples on TQS and on Sarah's site.

I made a baby quilt. I liked the chevrons and they were so easy. This is a picture before it was quilted and bound.

Bozie, you did another beautiful wall hanging. Love it.
Cuilteanna- beautiful quilt- I know the effort it takes to make complexed quilts. You did a great job.
Glassnquilts- your baby quilt turned out great- great colors
I completed my Patriotic Challenge, but will show it in the end of May. Still working on my Crimson Roses king size quilt. Lots of bias edeges and multi y seams. Just added my first two borders. Plenty of work left to do. LOL Sue

Not getting much done but sure am enjoying having my son home! I did finish the quilting on this one and have it hanging in my den. It's nice to have a nice tall 6'4" son to help get it up there. Started to hang it in my bedroom but figured it might keep us awake. I have a soft blue and yellow quilt on the wall and a white one on the bed.

Evelyn & cuilteanna you both made awesome quilts!

Bozie, nice mini...how big are those blocks? They seem larger than you normally do.

glassnquilts, I like those chevrons...nice & colorful.

I've been working on a couple of prom dress alterations...someday I'll learn to say no Roll Eyes Also working on a photo memory quilt, but not quite ready to be shown.

Several pretties again.

I've been cleaning house - diligently. I did get to the machine today for some - gag me - mending. I repaired DSs comforter so that he can get it cleaned. And I patched two pairs of his jeans.

I've quilted DGD's graduation quilt and am now binding it. I also quilted the sections for a new coverlet for the RV. Still have to put them together and bind it. My Horizon earned its keep today!!

So enjoy looking & reading about everyone's projects. I finally finished my May block, for the wall hanging, last night. I know it is about a week late. Seems like the faster I go the behinder I get! My delima is do I start on the one for June or do I put it off and do July and go back to June later. Decisions Decisions!

Such nice projects, as always!

When you breast feed a baby it's very handy to wear a pad to stop leaking all over your clothes. I taught school for 6 months while breast feeding. Any sound that was similar to a crying baby had milk spurting out of me. It's hard to leave 30 students alone while you pump!

Breast pads - I knew exactly what she was talking about! You can purchase commercial pads, but I found that they stuck to skin - OUCH! I used folded 100% cotton men's handkerchiefs. Sometimes 2 or 3 folded together.
