Garage Sale Quilt

I bought this pieced quilt top at a garage sale for $7. Then I took it home and quilted it, then sewed on the binding. I've still got to get a quilt label on it... but am struggling on what that should say.

ps -- there are very few things that I am very, very, very good at. But I have to say, sewing on a binding it in my top 3.

Sono Occupata!

Birthday apron(s) is complete. Looks like two aprons; but it is one! That's right, I made it reversible.

The round pocket says, "Sono Occupata." Italian for, "I'm busy."

ps -- used scraps from fall Four Season's Quilt Swap

Split Rail: June's Quilt

I think this is called a split rail pattern. But could be totally wrong.

Meghan Said: ... Grandma's Legs...

This was a previous comment on the post with the pictures of the Grandkid quilt.

I love the golf tan on Grandma's legs

I laughed my bloomin' arse off when I read this because the legs in the photo are my husband's. Either his mother has really hairy legs, or he's got great gams.

Calling All Quilters

The Four Seasons Quilt Swap was so fun. I'm going to do it, again. I believe the organizer is looking for interested participants. So, if you're remotely interested... click on the big purple square on the right-hand side of my navigation bar. You can get all the details. Don't worry, the next swap isn't right on top of x-mas. She's giving everyone until January.

She even lets non-U.S. quilters join. So, you could get a quilt from another country... or from Texas... that's a whole OTHER country, right?

PS -- If I have sewn you a quilt (or something else) please send me digital pictures. I want to add them to this online, electronic seamstress' journal I'm making.

My machine is ka-put. I'm anxious to hear the verdict from the Bernina mechanic. Until then, not many posts I can create. Sorry.
