I'm taking advantage of my "free" time during summer (between classes and taking Tori places) and giving quilting ago. My dad and sister traveled to Texas to the Neeley family reunion. I have always admired my cousin Lonette's quilting and finally got the courage to try one myself. Since I wasn't going to be at the reunion, I felt a little safe concerning possible scrutiny. Anyway, I already had 4 quilt squares put away for a later project. I got those out and decided to embroider some Texas graphics on 5 more squares. Rag quilts are easier to put together and likeable. I also cheated by using the stippling pattern on my embroidery machine. I've got to practice a little more with that.
While they were gone to Texas, I used a few more of the Texas fabric scraps and made a 16" Sprocket pillow. I think it is pretty cute but I will definitely line
the next one I make. The tutorial is on the Cluck Cluck Sew website.
My next project is called the Colorful Coins Quilt. I saw this tutorial also on Cluck Cluck Sew! It's a great website! Now I just need to figure out the backing. I'm thinking of a nice baby flannel. Then it will top quilting time. I hope I can do it! Wish me luck.
