Sew & Tell is our weekly sharing thread. Tell us what you've finished, what you're working on- we're here to cheer you on!
Another dreary day here, rain predicted for later. I have a date for my knee replacement- June 27. It can't come soon enough!
Who is sewing?
i have a crazy quilt that I have picked up and put down for several years. picked it up again, and quilt for my sister the lattes border is a chalange for me. I am trying to move the two projects off the back burner. and get them done
Not too long ago there was a discussion about quilts using the Burgoyne Surrounded design. That got me thinking that I should try to make a mini version. Here's the result. I think it could use some more quilting but can't figure where it should go. (Hubby says don't add more quilting - it might make it worse. )
Helping to fight Alzheimer's one little quilt at a time. AAQI
• • • I finished the borders and now I have to figure out how to get a photo. It's too big for any of the walls and my outdoor system is unavailable right now.
Bozie-I was on last week, but was sad not to see one of your mini. glad to see you posted one today. I love it and it looks super!!!! Thanks for sharing. Sue
• • • Dan came home so I could hang this outside. Now to figure out a backing and get quilting.

Jayardi, that sure is a cute quilt, T shirt?
Bozie, agree with Sister Sue your minis are amazing!!! Can't show what I've been working on, it's a surprise, but I have been busy. Maybe next week.
Love the mini - as usual. Always look forward to your posts, Bozie!
The t-shirt quilt is wonderful. I love the border and stars. Got any close up pictures to share??
Here's the front of a baby quilt I made for my daughter and son-in-law to give to one of his co-workers. The baby's room is pink and green.
here is the back.
I'm happy for you Holly...mine is being done on Monday, so my sewing this week was to get the last row done on a COF row robin- I wanted to make sure I had it done. But, I can't show it.
I also made an ice pack sack out of an old towel (a bridal shower gift, 31 years ago!)- not worth showing.
Today was spent working on making sure the house is ready when I get home from the hospital...junk off the stairs, pathways clear, bathrooms clean, laundry done, etc, etc. The house isn't completely ready, but I sure am! Especially after all the rain we've had in the past week.
Bozie, love that Burgoyne Surrounded! Not sure where else to quilt it either.
Jean, your t-shirt quilt turned out very cool!
Goldiesmom, love that pink & green.This message has been edited. Last edited by: AngelaC,
Jayardi, that is a fabulous t-shirt quilt, love the borders also.
Goldie, pretty pink and green!
I did something new for me this week. I like miniatures and there are a couple of unusual settings, like House of Ellwand's Fairie-ality (picture book of fairy costumes) and Martin and Martin's Fairy Island (mini-houses made from acorns, sticks, nature, etc.) that inspired me to make a faerie high-couture outfit for the Fairy version of the Kentucky Derby.
The bodice is an azalea bloom overlaid with oak leaf. The shirt is hibiscus and azalea blooms. The belt and shoulder straps are from a brown leaf. And the fancy fascinator hat like the Royals wear is the hibiscus stamen and green leaf. It was really a fun thing to design.
Great job, Wanda, I love that border fabric!
Wow, Jean, you have been busy! Love the border and stars that you added.
Well, Martha, what can I say about that Burgoyne Surrounded. Love that pattern and your mini version of it is so lovely.
Great stuff girls, wish I could get caught up and get something done.
Attended a quilt retreat last weekend and got the blocks for two lap quilts finished. Just got to get them put together and quilted.
Been cleaning my sewing room all week, things seem to pile up on my cutting table when I'm not looking. Time to cut some squares out of the scraps and get organized again.
Beautiful projects!! I'm starting to clean my sewing area as well...DH of a friend of mine passed earlier this week and I knew I had purchased a pattern and fabrics to make a quilt for her a couple of years ago (didn't get it even started) so I thought I would find it and send it to her to work on to keep her hands and mind busy once all the family leaves. Couldn't find it but did find two kits from Connecting Threads in browns and soothing blues so I'm sending her one of those....I'm determined to find the package I went looking for - maybe if I get things cleaned up again I'll spend more time down there and actually get it done for her.
Almost finished with my RWB Challenge for May 31. I will show pic's on that day. Hope others are doing the RWB Challenge. LOL. Sue
I finally figured out that if I go to the quilt shop on Wednesdays for their sit and sew, I will actually finish stitching on binding! I've gone a couple of time in the past three weeks and finished two quilts! Here is one for my older daughter.
And here is the wedding quilt that I finally finished for my younger daughter and her husband. They, ahem, wed in 2007.
And here is a the quilt I am almost finished quilting - it goes on our bed.
And a shamrock quilt I finished for my husband's nephew. Pearly is the model.
Wow, Penny, you have been busy! All are gorgeous, of course.
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
Great to hear from you Penny. Really nice quilts you have to share with us this week. Your family members will be thrilled.
I have really missed seeing your posts Penny, so it is great to see what you have been doing. Great model you have there. All the quilts are beautiful.
Our lives are like quilts - bits and pieces, joy and sorrow, stitched with love.
Penny, all your quilts are beautiful! I especially like the blue pineapple. I would love to see more of it!
You model is beautiful, she steals the show!
~There are pawprints on my heart.~
It is good to be back. That's Pearly modeling the Shamrock quilt. Here is the back of the one that just came off the longarm, this morning.
This is a king size quilt that I finished for my DD. It is all from stash. even the back.
Handie Ann - that is gorgeous. And a lot of work! I started a small quilt using that pattern and stalled out. I'm so impressed with your quilt.
Penny, nice to see you back, your quilts show that you have been a busy lady. They are lovely.
Handie, King size quilts take a long time to finish, yours looks great, must have put a dent in your stash!!
Bozie, I love your new mini.
Penny quilts, I like your quilting,
Great sewing!!! Penny your model is darling
Finished this quilt top for my DD dropped it off to the quilter yesterday, should be back and ready for binding in a few weeks.
(photo a little blurry, not sure if it is me trying to stand on the step stool and hold up the quilt or my phone camera).

Neat items this week everyone.
I'm a broken record, pillowcases for QWL... Chris
CQwannabe, I love, love, love the colors!!!
No quilting, but I did make a shirt for my little grandson. He's in Southern CA, so I thought he'd like the palm trees.
Cute palm tree shirt! It's fun to sew for little ones. Last month our guild did a demo on making a tote bag. So I made one and gave to the woman who did the demo. Tonight I won the door prize...a book that she had donated! She loved the tote and I loved the book.
